Hell, you know what? I'd be okay with seeing this lineup (why does every thread turn into a "dream-lineup-fest?" ):
Corey Perry ($6.500m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Alexander Semin* ($5.750m)
Johan Franzen ($3.955m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Damien Brunner ($2.250m)
Gustav Nyquist ($1.500m) / Valtteri Filppula ($3.500m) / Tomas Tatar ($0.840m)
Jordin Tootoo ($1.900m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Justin Abdelkader ($1.800m)
Drew Miller ($0.875m)
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)
Ian White ($2.875m) / Brendan Smith ($2.250m)
Brian Lashoff ($0.725m) / Jakub Kindl ($1.050m)
Kent Huskins ($0.750m)
Jimmy Howard ($3.750m)
Petr Mrazek ($0.773m)
???????: Todd Bertuzzi ($0.000m) -- Don't know what to do with him, really, but he's got to go.
Buyout: Carlo Colaiacovo ($0.00m)
Buyout: Mikael Samuelsson ($0.000m)
*Trade: Kyle Quincey ($0.000m)
*Trade: Patrick Eaves ($0.00m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $63,803,212; BONUSES: $355,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $863,788
* Yes, I think Semin has acquitted himself nicely this season, and I love being wrong about players of his caliber. I don't know that he'd take that amount over a longer term (5 years?), but surely some GMs will offer him at least that.
That really is a dream team. Contender for sure.
But picking up Semin and Perry is unlikely in itself.
But for those cap hits... they would need to be on 12 year deals?
Would you do it if it meant signing them both for life???
EDIT: just remembered, 7 year deal max. So maybe lowering cap hits is not as easy as before
