That makes it seem a little more daunting than it is - we don't need to sign/replace 7 guys. To be clear, we actually have a little over $10.5MM in space and the only things we NEED to do are:
- Re-sign Stepan
- Re-sign McDonagh
- Re-sign Hagelin
- Replace one fourth line forward
That gets you to a 20 man roster, with a full complement of forwards, D and goalies. If past history is any indication, Torts won't want much more - maybe a 7th D. Easily done if you sign the RFAs to bridge contracts. Tighter if one of them (*cough* McDonagh) gets a longer term deal, but you should still be able to squeeze it in.
Of course, this is before factoring in any potential trades.
