And none of that accounts for the fact we have to resign Voynov (who'll likely want a nice pay raise the way he's playing) Martinez, Ellerby, Muzzin, Bernier, Clifford, Nolan and Lewis as RFA's, while resigning or replacing our UFA's, which include Gagne, Penner, Richardson, Drewiske and Scuderi.

We are going to be so tight to the cap next year it's not even funny (barring any trades done between now and then which may free up cap room of course).
Unless DL makes a significant UFA signing, I doubt it will be all that tight.
