That leaves approximately $10,878,333 to sign:

(1) top pairing defensemen
(2) bottom 9 forwards
(1) backup goalie

I think it can be accomplished.
Yeah, but then in '14-'15 we have Schenn, Cooter and Roo all as RFA's and Read as a UFA with only Meszaros' contract giving his money back... so assuming we try to keep at least the big 3 that could potentially be 8M+ in raises, before even trying to re-sign Mesz or Read... so, if they go nuts in '13-'14 it is going to have some dire implications as soon as the next season after.

I still don't think we're in a terrible spot, though - especially if Kimmo takes a 1 year deal for '13-'14 (so his money can be delayed and come due for the big RFA year after), but just thought I'd point it out.
