To be honest, this is something I wish management was more proactive with.
I rather have a ''who to cut'' problem, as opposed to ''who to get now'' due to injury.

I much rather take a risk on starting a season over the cap, and then adjust via trade, waiver, or send down, than to start the season with your 7th-8th Dman.

But, if you want to play GM, and say we re-sign Wiz and Hammer, then there's no need for Gill to be re-signed, and obviously Campoli.
So already, that takes a couple millions off. Then, all you have to deal with is Spacek. Ship him out, I'm sure there would be takers.
At the very worst, you can choose not to re-sign Hammer as well.

To make it clear, I didn't even want Wiz re-signed. I don't think he's a good defenseman. But, just saying, it could have been done.
