We will be ok. We do have Burrows increase of 2.5 mil and we will probably re sign Raymond to the same amount. Tanev will want a raise but he has to accept 2.5 mil for now unless he shows flashes of all star .

Higgins will be let go . He is skilled but too soft and with Kassian and Schroeder around he no longer has a real role. Depends what we do with david booth.

Booth goes, Higgins can play with kesler

There are a lot of 'ifs' but I doubt 'cap problem' is going to be one of them. Finding the right deal for Schneider/ Luongo is the key.
Don't think Tanev gets anything close to the 2.5 range. Pretty sure Gillis gives him a 2 year bridge deal between 1.2-1.5. No way he gets Del Zotto, Kulekov, or Subban money. Cap is not a big problem. Though I am interested to see if cap could be higher than 64.3 million, because remember this is the lowest it could drop. Fans have come back big time this year, I wouldn't be surprised if next year it might be a little higher then 64.3.
