Cant see how you fit both Carter and Parise in along with Kopi, Doughty, Richards, Jack Johnson and Quick's new contract. All long term, big contracts.

When Quick's larger contract kicks in (2013-14), Mitchell will no longer be a King. Scuderi (one year left) may or may not be a King. Plus, the salary cap has been only increasing since it was instituted. There's little reason to assume it won't increase further at the rate of roughly $2-3 million per season. Of course, the CBA expires soon (this summer???), so there's no telling one way or the other.

But this off-season, the contracts of Stoll, Penner, Mitchell, Parse, and a few other guys come off the books. Quick is due $1.8 mil next season. We'll at least be able to afford BOTH Parise AND Carter next season.
