CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $63,743,333; BONUSES: $310,000
CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $6,766,667

Would you look at that. We can work under $65M and still keep Luongo and Schneider. Who'd have thought? Is this ideal? Hard, but certainly feasible. All the more so if the supposedly $67M is agreed upon. Regardless, find me a "king's ransom" post unless you are among the crowd who believes Luongo is with a 2nd and Komisarek. In which case, your opinion is irrelevant.

$60M as a cap and it's a different scenario. That I will concede just for argument sake.

Edit: And before anyone gets cute. Players will not be demanding significant raises in the new CBA world, especially with a sizable reduced cap. You have exceptions like Perry due to status but Higgins does not fall into the "must have" category. If he did leave though, we have Jensen or could look to FA.
Does HF have a "like" button?
