Scott Hartnell ($4.200m) / Claude Giroux ($3.750m) / Zach Parise ($6.000m)
James Van Riemsdyk ($4.250m) / Brayden Schenn ($3.110m) / Jakub Voracek ($0.300m)
Matt Read ($0.900m) / Sean Couturier ($1.375m) / Wayne Simmonds ($1.750m)
Zac Rinaldo ($0.544m) / Maxime Talbot ($1.750m) / Eric Wellwood ($0.580m)
Matt Ford ($0.525m)

Chris Pronger ($4.921m) / Ryan Suter ($6.000m)
Kimmo Timonen ($6.333m) / Braydon Coburn ($4.500m)
Erik Gustafsson ($0.900m) / Andrej Meszaros ($4.000m)
Andreas Lilja ($0.737m)

Ilya Bryzgalov ($5.666m) / Sergei Bobrovsky ($1.750m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $67,000,000; CAP PAYROLL: $63,843,373; BONUSES: $3,555,000
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $3,156,627

That is with the cap at $67 million and your far too low salary projections (Parise is making $6 million now, he is getting a raise...). So I guess in your fantasy world where players sign for less than market value and the cap goes up another $2.6 million, then yes I suppose it is possible.
Not disagreeing with your point, because I concur; but I don't think Parise necessarily gets more than 6. He'll get substantial years which could put him right around 6 again.
