They couldn't possibly extend him and Howard at the same time and hope to stay under the cap. My guess is you'll see something like this:

My Custom Lineup
Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Damien Brunner ($1.350m)
Johan Franzen ($3.955m) / Calle Jarnkrok ($0.900m) / Mikael Samuelsson ($3.000m)
Tomas Tatar ($0.840m) / Joakim Andersson ($0.875m) / Gustav Nyquist ($0.875m)
Justin Abdelkader ($1.800m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Jordin Tootoo ($1.900m)
Jan Mursak ($0.550m) / Cory Emmerton ($0.533m) /
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)
Carlo Colaiacovo ($2.500m) / Brendan Smith ($0.875m)
Alexander Edler ($5.000m) / Kyle Quincey ($3.775m)
Jakub Kindl ($0.883m)
Jonas Gustavsson ($1.500m)
Jimmy Howard ($3.750m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $60,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $57,819,545; BONUSES: $1,195,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $2,380,455
I assume you didn't think with the lines to much as no way Edler would be on third pairing and 3rd line is all rookies.

I think Smith will get bigger one unless it's only one year. Edler will get more than 5 mil, imo. Reportedly rejected 4.6 mil from Vancouver already. Would be estatic if we signed Howard under 4 mil but seems unlikely.

It will be tight for sure.
