Teams are allowed to spend up to $70M this season but next season the cap will drop to $64M. So the Rangers have around $7M to work with right now.
Not sure how the Wade Redden thing works though. You can't bury players in the minors anymore but the Rangers can't buy him out until the offseason. If he counts against the cap starting right now, then obviously they have much less than $7M to spend. Otherwise, they could re-sign MDZ and trade him in the offseason. Or they could trade him for a roster player and find another way to get under the cap in the offseason.
