Yeah, right now the Canes have 44 million tied up in payroll for next season with only 4 players to re-sign: Drayson Bowman, Bryan Allen, Jamie McBain, and Jeremy Welsh. Assuming we don't see another 18 million dollar cap hit with Welsh they're probably going to be right around 50 million with those re-signings if not a hair shy of it. Even if JR uses that cap space to go after a big time UFA forward as has been rumored, there's still a ton of room.
