2014-2015 is gonna be a salary ****storm.

Next year the Penguins don't have any players that are in line for major raises, and the players that are UFA or RFA can probably be re-signed for similar to what they're being paid now (capgeek).

Pascal Dupuis ($1.500m) / Sidney Crosby ($8.700m) / Chris Kunitz ($3.725m)
James Neal ($5.000m) / Evgeni Malkin ($8.700m) / Beau Bennett ($0.900m)
Matt Cooke ($1.800m) / Brandon Sutter ($2.067m) / Tyler Kennedy ($2.000m)
Tanner Glass ($1.100m) / Joe Vitale ($0.550m) / Eric Tangradi ($0.762m)
Dustin Jeffrey ($0.688m) / Craig Adams ($0.675m) /
Paul Martin ($5.000m) / Brooks Orpik ($3.750m)
Kris Letang ($3.500m) / Matt Niskanen ($2.300m)
Simon Despres ($0.840m) / Deryk Engelland ($0.567m)
Ben Lovejoy ($0.525m) /
Marc-Andre Fleury ($5.000m)
Tomas Vokoun ($2.000m)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $61,648,133; BONUSES: $0
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $2,651,867

But the following year you have a lot of players that will be up for a raise. I've given a conservative estimate of what those raises might be:

So you've got about $2.6M to give raises to Letang ($2.5M), Sutter ($1.0M), Malkin ($0.3M), Niskanen ($0.2M), Despres ($0.2M), Engelland ($0.1M). That's $4.3M right there.

Could get pretty dicey especially if my estimates are low. If Malkin wants $9.5M, Letang wants $7.0M and Niskanen becomes a $3.0M defenceman it really throws things off.
