Compare that to ROR who wants something like 5

Imagine:
5,000,000 ROR
5,750,000 Toby
5,250,000 Kane
5,200,000 Buff
3,900,000 Pav
4,400,000 Olli
4,400,000 Ladd
5,000,000 Bogo
5,000,000 Wheeler
3,500,000 Little

That would be 47.4MM towards a 64.3MM cap and leave 16.9 MM to fill out the rest of the roster.

Less:
1,600,000 Slater
1,700,000 Stuart
0,650,000 Wright
0,866,667 Thor
1,000,000 Postma
1,000,000 Redmond

Which leaves us with 10.083MM left to add a backup goalie, three bottom 6 forwards, and a couple depth D men. It wouldn't be a dire situation, but it would put them quite a bit closer to the cap. Are the Jets comfortable there?
Good breakdown. On the plus side, after next season Olli's 4.4 comes off those books, and we can *hopefully* add in Scheifele. But, with being a first round pick his cap hit can go up to 3.775 million, I believe.

I'd still feel comfortable with those numbers. Only thing is, is that would be the core and there really is no room to add a big UFA without moving a salary. That could be tricky if this core doesn't get their crap together as a group. Could O'Reilly help that? possibly. Could Scheifele in the coming couple years? possibly. As could Trouba. All things management will have to decide upon.
