The potential cap problems all come next summer. Right now Staal and Crosby are signed for another year and you could still sign Niskanen and Tangradi to their QOs and get a <1m backup goalie under the old cap even.
The only reason cap comes into this is because next year a huge bunch of player (chief among them Crosby and Staal) would start new contracts, while Malkin and Letang would need to be locked up. Cap going up significantly this year, Cap going up significantly next year and Martin getting moved are all distinct possibilities though. Also paid players not named Staal getting traded in RL in general is something that soemtimes happens.
