Let us assume the following:
We are looking for UFA Rentals Only this year
We do not deal any of our current 12 roster fwds, top 6 defenders (plus Sauer) or goalies

Our Deadline Day cap space number (prorated) is at $6,959,621 according to Cap geek
Wolski will most likely be waived/traded - minus another $3,800,000 on the cap (annual)
One of Bickel ($600.000) or Woywitka ($650.00) will be waived/traded before the deadline.Both these numbers will be gone if we acquire another defender.

This gives us a total of $12,009,000 in possible "add-ons" to our cap space at the deadline. In addition - assuming Sauer is done for the year - we can add his LTIR number (around $820.000 that can Be used as cap overage) on top of this = $12,828,621 is the annual cap hit we could in theory be taking on...

We can therefore (at most) add one Rental defender & 2 Rental fwds by using our other non-roster assets (As in aforementioned players = Wolski + Woywitka + ev Bickel, The CT Whale roster, NYR prospects, future NYR draft picks).
Here below is basically what is theoretically available. All of these players will not make it tothe market. And all of these teams will NOT be sellers. Just saying so I do not need to hear this later.
You can do the math...
We might have to deal roster players to acquire some of the proposed rentals - but I think management is reluctant to do this regarding chemistry. We also might deal for other players that are not UFAs - but this is not the way Sather usually operates. This time might very wellbe different though... Time will tell....
Hope this little table can be helpful to all here on the Board...
