Compare that to ROR who wants something like 5

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.

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.
