Langkow is likely gone. That saves us $4.5 million in salary.

Lots of cash to extend Doan (likely at similar or slightly less dollars) and Whitney ($4-$4.5 million).

Where does that put us relative to the cap if you fill in Roszival with Summers (assuming Gormely and Rundblad are in the AHL next year to start).
That's debatable - if you look at the minutes Aucoin eats up a case could be made for a slight raise. Performance is the basis for a veteran's contract and Aucoin chews up the TOI with the best.

He's missed a few games due to injury (which could certainly be used as rationale for a bit of a cut) but when he's in the lineup he generally only lags Yandle in minutes. Those minutes indicate the coaches trust him which should be reflected in his paycheque.
