That is 22 million for next season, for a D with 6 guys who can actually play. Decent mix of skill and puck movers. How can you argue we can't afford that?

LA for example has 15 million committed to 3 D to start next year. (Doughty 7, Mitchell 3.5, Green 3). Muzzin, Voyonov and Scuderi all need new deals.

Van have 23 million committed to 5 guys (Edler 5, Hamius 4.5, Ballard 4.2, Bieksa 4.6, Garrison 4.6)

Its not even close to as difficult as you make it seem. Also, the fact that his contract is so high may mean they move him for pretty cheap, which would make it all the more enticing.

Then, if you're in a cap crunch at the end of next year, you can deal N Schultz and give Klefbom the spot. That saves 2 mil, and Klefbom will have a year of NA experience by then.
Signed Forwards = $34.75.
Estimate Unsigned forwards (Sam Gagner 4, Paajarvi 2, Jones 2, Harti 1, Petrell 1) = 10.

Defense = Your six D plus 7th D (say 0.9) = 23

Goalies = 3.5 plus backup (say 1.5) = 5

Total = 72.75.

Cap for 2013/2014 = 64.3 million.

You want to try adding that up again? It's 8 million over the cap.

"not even close to as difficult as you make it seem" is it?
