Cap Management

I hope our team doesn't get gutted in the summer of 2014.

Fairly certain to leave:

1. Richards
2. Gaborik
3. Asham
4. Haley
5. Pyatt
6. Bickel
7. Biron

May leave:

1. Boyle
2. Stralman
3. Powe

Terrible if they leave:

1. Lundqvist
2. Girardi
3. Callahan

This is the very preliminary roster we might see in 2014-15 assuming we neither sign nor lose any stars. I put in Haley and Eminger as our #13 and #7, but it could be any other cheap replacement. The cap hit overall came out to $53. I am certain that due to revenue increase, the cap in 2014-15 will be over $70, which would mean we will be able to splurge to sign or trade for a star that another team cannot afford. But below is what would happen if we didn't sign any stars and didn't lose any of our own.

Carl Hagelin ($2.500m) / Derek Stepan ($2.500m) / Rick Nash ($7.800m)
Chris Kreider ($1.325m) / J.T. Miller ($1.244m) / Ryan Callahan ($6.000m)
Marek Hrivik ($0.685m) / Oscar Lindberg ($0.760m) / Jesper Fasth ($0.900m)
Andrew Yogan ($0.800m) / Brian Boyle ($1.700m) / Darroll Powe ($1.500m)
Micheal Haley ($0.600m) /

Marc Staal ($3.975m) / Dan Girardi ($3.325m)
Ryan McDonagh ($3.500m) / Anton Stralman ($1.700m)
Michael Del Zotto ($2.550m) / Dylan McIlrath ($1.295m)
Steve Eminger ($0.750m) /

Henrik Lundqvist ($7.775m)
Cameron Talbot ($0.563m)

We can sign a star center and a star winger (Gaborik?) instead of Boyle and Powe, and still wind up with about $6 to spend, enough for another superstar.
