Ok, so let's assume they defer the $2.5 million in bonuses and sign Subban to a $6M deal. Then next year is at $8.57 cap space - $2M deferred bonuses - $6M for Subban = $570K cap space, with only 17 players under contract. Even if you buy out Kaberle, you've now got ~$5M to sign 7 players, including Desharnais.

Pushing the bonuses to next year would be a HUGE mistake.
