Scott Hartnell ($4.200m) / Claude Giroux ($6.750m) / Jakub Voracek ($4.250m)
Second Line LW ($3.750m) / Brayden Schenn ($3.125m) / Wayne Simmonds ($3.975m)
Matt Read ($2.500m) / Sean Couturier ($2.250m) / Maxime Talbot ($1.750m)
Eric Wellwood ($0.800m) / 4th Line C ($1.100m) / Zac Rinaldo ($0.600m)
13th Forward ($0.800m)
Braydon Coburn ($4.500m) / Erik Gustafsson ($1.100m)
Luke Schenn ($3.600m) / Nicklas Grossmann ($3.500m)
Marc-Andre Bourdon ($0.900m) / Top Pairing D (6.500m)
7th Defender ($0.900m)
Ilya Bryzgalov ($5.667m)
Backup ($0.900m)

is $63,416,667m

assuming we have a salary cap of 64M by year two?
Those extensions are mighty low in terms of dollars.
If this goes through with a 6/8 year contract limit Claude Giroux will cost more than $7m per year.
Also Matt Read, a 20goal and 50point scorer will cost more than $2.5m. Also extensions for Wellwood and Rinaldo will be more expensive if they're given out.
On the flipside I believe you can get a #1 defender for less than $6.5m if he's old enough and not directly effected by the limit in contract length, i.e. older than 28 or so.

Don't really know what you mean by year two. If I understood right the cap would be the same as last season for this one and after this would trop to $60m, so there goes another $4m.
