I don't think it's necessary to go through the numbers to see that there has to be a mistake. Last year we were right near the cap floor. Since then the only added salary was Jokinen and Poni, as well as Kane and Pavelec's raises. Considering we're losing (or at least lowering) Antropov and Hainsey's salaries this offseason there's no way we're near the cap even if we have to re-sign a bunch of RFAs.

Basically my reasoning is that if the current Jets squad, near the floor last year and with only decent talent to re-sign next year (no Crosby/Stamkos types), gets close to the cap after the bad contracts come off the books, every other team in the league is in trouble.
