If the Kings bring Penner and Stoll back at a cap hit of $3M a piece and Fraser re-signs for about $850K (which is a $25K raise for him), the Kings will save $1,825,000 in cap space.
They also have to re-sign Dwight King who was earning a little less than $600K. I imagine he'll get a bump up to about $800K to $900K. Let's go with the higher number since he'll be the 3rd line LW.
The adjusted numbers with the cap decreases to Penner and Stoll would lower LA's cap hit from $63,671,201 in 2011-12 to $61,995,227 in 2012-13. And that is with 24 players listed on the roster with Richardson, Clifford, Westgarth and Drewiske as the spare players on the roster. The rest of the lineup would be exactly the same as it was during these playoffs with Gagne on the fourth line.
With Quick due for a raise in 2013-14, I don't think we should expect the Kings to be active in making any outside additions to the roster.
