Clowe and Murray are gone for sure. I will be generous and assume that there really are 2 buyouts, not just one. If we buy out both niemi and Stuart that saves some money, but they have to be replaced. Below is what the roster looks like if you buy those two players out. I also bumped up the salaries of those who need to be resigned (using easy numbers to speed up the math).

Patrick Marleau ($6.900m) / Joe Thornton ($7.000m) / Martin Havlat ($5.000m)
????????? ($????) / Logan Couture ($2.875m) / Joe Pavelski ($4.000m)
T.J. Galiardi ($1.550m) / Tommy Wingels ($0.775m) / Adam Burish ($1.850m)
Andrew Desjardins ($0.640m) / James Sheppard ($1.250m) / John McCarthy ($0.613m)
13th Fwd ($.750m)
Marc-Edouard Vlasic ($3.100m) / Brent Burns ($5.760m)
Jason Demers ($1.750m) / Dan Boyle ($6.667m)
Sena Acolatse ($0.900m) / Justin Braun ($1.250m)
7th Dman ($.750)
Thomas Greiss ($2.588m)
Harri Sateri ($0.875m)
SALARY CAP: $60,000,000; CAP PAYROLL: $56,841,667; BONUSES: $357,500
CAP SPACE (19-man roster): $2,758,333

It is generally a good idea to keep at least 600,000 in cap space (if not more) for injury replacements and trades during the season. This leaves you with $2mil to find a second line LW. I don't see one in the system that will be ready by next year. Who do you think will fill that hole?
You're being more than generous with more than a few guys considering where they will likely be at the end of this potential season. Greiss isn't going to make 2.5 mil after he plays a shortened season as a backup to Niemi. Sheppard isn't making that either. With your extras, that's 1.2 mil left and with realistic estimates for those two being around 1 mil each, you're left with 3.2 mil left to get that forward if they felt that Hertl wasn't ready by then. More than doable.
