I wonder if something around MDZ+Redden coming to Oilers could help make the deal...

Oilers have the room this year and than can buy him out at the end of the season..

NYR are tight against the cap without Redden's cap hit, after this trade they can acquire some rentals to make a playoff push.
No, they certainly are not. Over $5M in available cap space (counting Redden & Drury but with Sauer on LTIR) with a 22-man team of healthy players at the beginning of the year - which also equals over $20M (prorated it is 4,125 times the annual cap hit at the trade deadline April 5.

Just ran this myself. Please note that this includes The bonus cushion. This was also under the supposition that MDZ winds up with an annual hit of $2,5M (a number Brooks had mentioned previously). Anything higher than the $2,5M caphit figure for MDZ then lowers the cap space by corresponding amount. Lower raises the cap space by similar math. Here is what I got (same result as the first page on this thread):

Rick Nash ($7.800m) / Brad Richards ($6.667m) / Ryan Callahan ($4.275m)
Chris Kreider ($1.325m) / Derek Stepan ($0.875m) / Marian Gaborik ($7.500m)
Carl Hagelin ($0.875m) / Brian Boyle ($1.700m) / Taylor Pyatt ($1.550m)
Mike Rupp ($1.500m) / Jeff Halpern ($0.700m) / Arron Asham ($1.000m)
Micheal Haley ($0.600m)
Total caphit fwds - $36,366,667

Marc Staal ($3.975m) / Dan Girardi ($3.325m)
Anton Stralman ($1.700m) / Ryan McDonagh ($1.300m)
Michael Del Zotto ($2.500m) / Steve Eminger ($0.750m)
Stu Bickel ($0.750m)
Total defensemen ($14.300m)

Henrik Lundqvist ($6.875m)
Martin Biron ($1.300m)
Total Goalies ($8.175m)

Chris Drury ($1.667m)

Wade Redden ($5.600m)

Michael Sauer ($1.250m)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $70,200,000
CAP PAYROLL: $72,958,334
TOTAL SALARY HIT: $67.358.334
BONUSES: $1,250,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster including Sauer plus Dead Money): $4,091,666
LTIR (Sauer): $1,250,000
DEAD MONEY (Redden/Drury): $7.266,667
