It'd be something close to 16 million. 8 mil for Suter, 4 for Gilbert. and 4-5 guys making ≤1 mil. That's about 28% of the Current cap for 6 players. On a roster of 23 players 6 players are 26% of the team, so the blue line would be making a proportionate amount of money, just in terms of pure # of players, and not value to team and other hard to quantify things.

So yes if we can get Suter for 8 mil a year sign me up and take my first born child.
