That capgeek number includes Briere and Bryzgalov (either or both of whom could be bought out) as well as Pronger, who will got on LTIR at the start of next season (so he cancels out the 10 percent offseason cushion).

There are many reasons that an OS won't work, but lack of cap space isn't one of them.
So you are just dealing with hypothetical scenarios. Pronger's cap space can be replaced. So who are they going to replace Bryzgalov and Briere with if they buy them out? Pietrangelo going to play the 2nd line and in net? I'd love to see them offer sheet Pietrangelo while also trying to sign Giroux, Schenn and Couturier to extensions next season. Good luck with that.
