It wouldn't be nearly as bad as many here make it out to be.
Step 1) Trade Dubinsky for picks/prospects
Dubinsky + Bourque
Biggs + 4th '13
Step 2) Re-sign MDZ, Prust, Bickel, Stralman, Mitchell, MZA

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $62,933,334; BONUSES: $1,462,500
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $1,366,666
That's the line-up with MZA @ 1.5 million, Kreider @ 1.75 million and (3) extra players on the cap all season (Which will not happen). Also, that has Parise making 7.5 million/season. The cap has NOT gone up in this which is being rumored to be happening.
