Chris Drury1,666,667

SALARY CAP: $70,200,000 ?? What will it be after CBA is signed and what eventual rollback??
CAP PAYROLL: $54,025,209
CAP SPACE (20-man roster including bonuses, 2 men on IR and Drury buyout): $16,194,791
IR (2 men) - $8,750,000

Wade Reddens cap hit on the summer cap nullifies the summer cap overage of 10% (basically)
Say Del Zotto gets around $1,4 m in raise from his qo
That leaves around $16,5 in cap space. Plus the deferrable bonuses ( probably will be put back into new CBA) and also the Substantial IR space for Gaborik and Sauer, at least at the beginning of the year. Hopefully both return asap healthy and better than ever.

We therefore now need to sign the following for the NYR:
  • 4-5 Forwards
  • 1-2 defenseman - at least! (if Strålman stays and Erixon graduates, otherwise add more roster player needed for each of these empty slots)
  • And a plethora of players for Hartford to be used there and as eventual callups

Also seriously needed to be taken into consideration (as RB correctly points out constantly) is the new CBA and an eventual new cap hit ceiling thereafter (with or without a rollback)
So the cap space might in reality wind up being lower and our purchase power also relatively lower (say 65 million instead of 70,2 m)
But this nobody knows today
But as is now --- we need these amount of players
Lots of interesting math lies ahead...
Speculate some more!!
Slather will be very busy on Sunday, be so certain.
Lord help us!
