It won't be very hard at all. Gomez and Kaberle/Markov (if Markov can't survive a 50 game season, it's time to cut ties) out. Raises to Subban/Desharnais. All the other guys we have left to re-sign are going to be on cheap contracts. Throw in some rookies as well and it'll work out. In the 2014 off-season, the other of Kaberle/Markov as well as Gionta come off the books which is another 9+ million right there.

It's really only the 2013/2014 season we have to worry about and with the two compliance buyouts we should be able to fit everything under a 64.3 million dollar upper limit. Desharnais and Subban are still RFAs so they don't have the type of leverage to be asking for ridiculous amounts.
