You are living in a fantasy world where a cap doesn't exist. Give up trying to mimic Rangers and Leafs fans.

Dude, YOU do the math!

3.5 ....Gagne (who may never play again)
4.25 ..Penner
3.6 ....Stoll

That's $11.35 million. Now take that number and subtract what Carter makes and what Parise is likely to make. It more or less works! This is assuming the cap continues to rise at the rate it has in the past....

Our "problems" with the cap would not happen until 2013-14. However, based upon past cap increases, we theoretically would have $4-6 million MORE added to the salary cap by 2013-14 (i.e., around $69 million total), so there theoretically would not be a problem.

It's all just math, folks.
