Cap space question

Canucks fan coming in peace, although ur going to hate me for what I'm about to suggest haha. I know the Preds have just over 30M in cap space, but how much of that are they willing to use? Are they finally willing to go right up against the cap?

Also you guys need 3 top 4 d-men and 2 top 6 fowards minus RFAs Weber and Kostitsyn right? Or do u expect one or 2 of Ellis/Blum/Klein/Josi/Ekholm to join Weber and Gill in the top 4?

Reason I ask is because I was wondering if Nashville could afford to match a 1 year 10M offersheet to Weber. Compensation is 4 1st round picks. Matching may leave the Preds with nothing to show for Weber next year.

If they match they also now only have 20M which is a 5M average for 2 top 3 d-men and to re-sign Kostitsyn and sign another top 6 foward. This only if they spend right up to the cap as well.

So would managment be allowed to spend to the cap to fill out the roster if they match?
