We do have Gagne, Penner, Richie and Scuds coming off the books, but their salaries amount to $11.325 million, and the cap decrease + Quick's raise = $9.9 million.
That leaves us very little $ to replace those four guys, not to mention we'll likely have to replace Bernier as well and if we have to go to the UFA market for a backup it could cost us more than the $1.25 Bernier is getting.
