The floor for the Devils is closer to $59M. Keep that in mind. Kovy's overage.

Here's a roster.

Ilya Kovalchuk ($6.667m) / Travis Zajac ($3.888m) / Adam Henrique ($0.854m)
David Clarkson ($2.667m) / Patrik Elias ($6.000m) / Dainius Zubrus ($3.400m)
Mattias Tedenby ($0.875m) / Jacob Josefson ($0.900m) / Steve Bernier ($0.750m)
Stephen Gionta ($0.563m) / Ryan Carter ($0.775m) /
Eric Boulton ($0.663m) /
DEFENSEMEN
Anton Volchenkov ($4.250m) / Marek Zidlicky ($4.000m)
Henrik Tallinder ($3.375m) / Andy Greene ($3.000m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $47,666,666; BONUSES: $547,500
CAP SPACE (20-man roster): $22,533,334


They have around $7M to spend on either a forward or a goalie. Or a little of each.
That's just to scrape the floor, no one scrapes the floor, it's probably closer to $9-10M.
