assuming we unload murray for picks,we still need to resign bruan (RFA), a 7th dman, re-up winnik i guess, resign galiardi, desjardins, and fill out 4 other slots. if we trade away pavs or clowe, then we have to find a top 6 for the roughly the same price (HIGHLY unlikely) or we are in even worse cap hell. if the cap gets lowered to or if our internal cap is 65, then we are in horrible horrible shape. unless you consider trading clowe or neimi for picks as being a good thing.
Calm down man, you really are going overboard here. We do not have an internal cap, the owners JUST said as much.

My Custom Lineup
Patrick Marleau ($6.900m) / Joe Thornton ($7.000m) / Joe Pavelski ($4.000m)
T.J. Galiardi ($0.735m) / Logan Couture ($2.875m) / Martin Havlat ($5.000m)
Daniel Winnik ($2.500m) / Dominic Moore ($1.500m) / Tommy Wingels ($0.900m)
Andrew Desjardins ($0.594m) / James Sheppard ($0.761m)
Dan Boyle ($6.667m) / Brent Burns ($5.760m)
Brad Stuart ($3.600m) / Marc-Edouard Vlasic ($3.100m)
Justin Braun ($1.250m) / Jason Demers ($1.250m)
Antti Niemi ($3.800m)
Thomas Greiss ($0.588m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $70,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $58,779,417; BONUSES: $0
CAP SPACE (19-man roster): $11,520,583

That's just Clowe, Murray, and Handzus out. Still have 11 million to sign anyone we want, and if it's Suter we can trade Boyle and still have tons of cap space left.
