If you lose Pyatt and Asham's salary, that's about 2.55 Million cleared, you can bring up Haley for the fourth line whose only making 600k next season I believe, so you clear 2 Million in space there alone.
I don't think you'll get McDonagh for much lower than 4 because he's arbitration eligible, but I can see Stepan coming down to 3, and Hagelin around 2 if they give us a small discount. If you somehow manage to fit it all in, it'd be TIGHT. Then you still worry about giving Sauer and Zucc Qualifying offers and it gets even worse.
