Okay I needed to make some kind of lineup that didn't make me nauseous.

My Custom Lineup
Adam Henrique ($0.854m) / Travis Zajac ($3.888m) / Ilya Kovalchuk ($6.667m)
Dainius Zubrus ($3.400m) / Patrik Elias ($6.000m) / Petr Sykora ($1.000m)
Bobby Butler ($0.525m) / Jacob Josefson ($0.900m) / David Clarkson ($2.667m)
Ryan Carter ($0.775m) / Stephen Gionta ($0.563m) / Steve Bernier ($0.775m)
Krystofer Barch ($0.750m) / Cam Janssen ($0.575m) /
Anton Volchenkov ($4.250m) / Andy Greene ($3.000m)
Henrik Tallinder ($3.375m) / Adam Larsson ($0.925m)
Marek Zidlicky ($4.000m) / Bryce Salvador ($3.167m)
Mark Fayne ($1.300m) / Peter Harrold ($0.525m)
Martin Brodeur ($4.500m)
Johan Hedberg ($1.400m)
Colin White ($1.000m) / Trent Hunter ($0.667m) / Eric Boulton ($0.163m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $57,608,333; BONUSES: $262,500
CAP SPACE (24-man roster): $12,854,167

Having four extras AND re-signing Sykora for 1,000,000 still leaves the Devils with a TON of cap space. If the cap is 64.3 (which it is next year) the Devils still have 6 million in space. Colin White's 1,000,000 buy out is also gone after this year.

The elephant in the room is the defensemen... One HAS to be moved.

Harrold can shuttle or sit in the press box... and after the post-season and the season Larsson is having this year, he's definitely starting. Someone has to go. Zidlicky is the only defenseman on the last year of his deal but he did very well for us and will probably stay. Salvador will possibly be the captain and just signed a three year deal. He's not going anywhere. Volchy has a no trade clause, is overpaid, and has four years left. I highly doubt any team is going to be after him.

By process of elimination, it has to be either Tallinder or Greene. I think Lou likes Fayne enough that he'll start.

I think Lou either signs Sykora and trades Greene/Tallinder for picks.... or does not sign Sykora and trades the d-men in a package for a forward.
