We may get .5 mil back after dealing JB and replacing him with a goalie that makes the minimum. Parse's 1 mil comes off too.
Kings still have $11.8 million available for next season with 22 roster players signed. King is the only other player that needs a new contract, but the won't get much of a raise from last year. Quick's cap hit is still $1.8 million for next season, his extension doesn't kick in until 2013-14.
Clifford probably goes to Manchester or Westgarth is waived to make room for King and Penner on the 23 man roster.
The temporary summer cap is over $77 million (you are allowed to go over by 10% during the off season), if Dean somehow signs Parise, then Gagne would probably be traded or waived to make room. That is an additional $3.5 million.
