You didn't add Glencross to that lineup, and still barely fit under the cap. You are also counting on bonuses rolling over into the 2014 season. The bonus cushion is an option, but we are better off not using it. The last thing we need is to carry over 2 mil in cap hits.
You also don't know what cap hits McD, Stepan and Hags will get. They could all be higher than your predictions.
And we don't know what type of deal we'll be able to get for Gabby (or any other player) and how much cap space that will free up.
So adding Glencross's 2.55 mil per year to the mix without subtracting any significant salary is a just a bad idea. We'd be painting ourselves into a corner.
