Hypothetical: is this possible? Salary Cap circumvention?

$5M * top 6F => $30M
$5M * top 4D => $20M
$5M * top 1 goalie => $5M
Leaving $5M (on a $60M cap) for 9 players at minimum of $600k.
It's doable. But I think you're going to have a hard hard time finding 6 forwards actually worth spending that much money on who are also willing to come play for you.
It's actually not that far off the Canucks model, where you have a core group of 5 forwards in the $4.5M+ range (Sedins, Kesler, Booth, Burrows), a number of high quality defensemen in the $4.5M-$5M area, and a stud goalie in the $5M range.
