I don't see how you think we'd be over the cap then. By my calculation, if those players got those raises
and they counted against the cap this season and for arguments sake we'll say Kane's cap hit is $5 mil.
Enstrom's raise. We'd still have $4,314,042 left in cap space. That's also
Antropov and Hainsey on the books. Plus we'd still have a legal roster without having to sign anyone extra. We would have 13 forwards, 7 defensemen, and 2 goalies on the books.
Also, the roster does not need to be 23. That's just the maximum limit.
