Carrying a 23-man roster, you'll need 6 more signed with that 10 million. Koivu will likely stay in ANA, and sign for $4m-ish. A couple of those are RFA's, due for decent raises. Gonna be tight, and coming from a team that's been using an internal cap for financial reasons.
Koivu will have to take a discount, and even if he doesn't, just about everyone could be replaced internally. It doesn't get much respect on here, but the Ducks have a very deep prospect pool with a lot of guys being close to ready. Budget team or not, they're winning again and are eligible for revenue sharing, they can afford to spend a little, as seen with this extension.
