Even with Redden getting bought out, aren't we up against the cap (or what we anticipate the cap will be)? How are we gonna resign DZ??
Rick Nash ($7.800m) / Brad Richards ($6.667m) / Marian Gaborik ($7.500m)
Taylor Pyatt ($1.550m) / Brian Boyle ($1.700m) / Ryan Callahan ($4.275m)
Chris Kreider ($1.325m) / Mike Rupp ($1.500m)
Arron Asham ($1.000m)

Marc Staal ($3.975m) / Dan Girardi ($3.325m)
Michael Del Zotto ($2.500m) / Anton Stralman ($1.700m)
Stu Bickel ($0.750m)

Henrik Lundqvist ($6.875m)
Martin Biron ($1.300m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $60,000,000
CAP PAYROLL: $53,741,667
BONUSES: $637,500
CAP SPACE (16-man roster): $8,895,833

Left to sign
McD $3,5M+
Stepan $2,5 - 3M
Hagelin $2M+
CapSpace =around $0,5M (19 man roster)

Pyatt, Rupp and Asham ($4M in space) might possibly be replaced by Fast, Lindberg, Miller ($2,9M in space). Not sure if they could...

This would create another $1,1 M = $1,6M total space

Still need one more defender and 2 fwds on the team
Good lord, Newbury, Haley and Gilroy at league minimums?
Would fit, barely...

Sauer ??? retires ???
McIllraith maybe is forced to graduate midseason - maybe replacing Stralman. Another $0,4M

So somebody "untouchable" will most likely need to leave the squad with a $60M cap
Most likely
Boyle (not an Elliot Ness guy btw)??
Could be...
Time will tell
