Say we were given the oppurtunity to amnesty prongers cap hit, you could try to trade Jvr, bob, a 1st and the rights to Carle for Nash.

Let's say the cap is set at 69mil.
Our current cap number is ~61.2
61.2 - 4.25 - 1.75 - 4.9 + 7.8 = ~58.1
Which would leave us ~10.9 million to resign voracek and the rest of our FAs, a backup and maybe still make a run at suter if we moved someone else, like Mez.

My cap calculations may not be 100%, but I'd do that.

Nash-Giroux-Voracek
Hartnell-Schenn-Briere
Simmonds-Couturier-Read
Rinaldo/Sestito/Wellwood-Ufa faceoff specialist-Talbot

xxx(suter)-Coburn
Meszaros-Timonen
Grossmann-Bourdon/Gustafason/Manning

Bryzgalov
xxx (Biron?)

The only thing is it may complicate resigning Schenn, Coots and G in the future.
