The Rangers have just under $21 million in cap space available under the $70.2 million ceiling set for next season, though the cap is sure to be recalculated and likely redefined by the CBA that will be negotiated and go into effect before the 2012-13 season opens.
The Rangers’ projected $49.2 million payroll includes just one goaltender in Henrik Lundqvist; three healthy defensemen in Staal, McDonagh and Dan Girardi; 10 forwards and the buyout charge applied to Chris Drury.
The Rangers will attempt to sign impending restricted free agent defenseman Michael Del Zotto to a new contract that likely will be for two years in the range of $1.75-$2.25 million per season.
A 2 year contract is one non-arb and one arb year. That number is light. DZ is worth at least $2.5M per.
Same formula with 50% going to the players is a $62M upper limit. The Rangers don't have an unlimited amount to spend.
