Well, here's the rest of my 'dear lord, please' plan:

1. Sign Parise and Suter for our remaining cap space max.
2. Move TK and Martin for a pick, freeing up 7M.
3. Set aside 2.25M for a 4th line winger, Despres, and Bortuzzo.
4. Trade Kunitz and Orpik for Kulemin and Gunnarrson (and 3.5M in cap space).
5. Resign Matt Niskanen for 2.25M.

All said and done, the Pens would have about 6M left. Shane Doan and some money left for the deadline for a defenseman anyone?

Parise-Sid-Doan
Kulemin-Geno-Neal
Cooke-Sutter-Dupuis
SIGNEE-Vitale-Adams
Jeffrey

Suter-Letang
Gunnarrson-Niskanen
Despres-Engo
Bortuzzo

Here's my 'o'k, that works too' plan:

1. Sign Parise and Suter for our remaining cap space max.
2. Move Tangradi, TK, and Martin for Setoguchi (saves 4M in space).
3. Sign a 4th line winger and slot Despres and Bortuzzo for 2.25M. You've got 1.75M left for one defenseman. I think then you go with one of the kids and save 750K for the deadline.

Parise-Sid-Seto
Kunitz-Geno-Neal
Cooke-Sutter-Duper
SIGNEE-Vitale-Adams
Jeffrey

Suter-Letang
Orpik-?????
Despres-Engo
Bortuzzo

O'k, that said, here's what I think happens . . . Take out option number four, and the Pens resign Niskanen and a Sullivan type for the top nine. Still a sweet team . . .
