$23.36M Kings

Analysis: The Kings spend too much on defense. I haven't looked but I bet the Kings group is the lowest scoring of the lot too.
Part of that is that the Kings have to spend that much money on defense. Scuderi and Mitchell, almost $7 million between them, aren't signing here unless they get the money. Doughty's $7 million is an eyesore, only eclipsed by his play on the ice for the most part. Johnson's salary isn't too bad, except when he goes 30 games with a handful of points. Greene makes too much for what he does, but if not him, the Kings would've had to give a Scuderi/Mitchell type of free agent more than they gave Greene.
