Salary Cap: $64.3M
Cap Spent: $50.4M

Kipper retires; Let Babchuk, Cervenka, Begin walk, dump Sarich for a pick

Sign as UFA:
Iginla @ 3 yrs/$15M ($5M/yr - Iggy Discount)
Roy @ 3 yrs/$15M ($5M/yr)
Clarkson @ 2 yrs/$8M ($4M/yr)
Ryan Whitney @ 1 yr/$2M

I like who you'd sign/re-up, but the proposed contracts seem a touch generous:

Backlund - 2 yrs/$4M (2M per)
Brodie - 2 yrs/$3M (1.5M per)
Butler - 2 yrs/$3.75M
Cundari - 2 yrs/$2.5 ($1.25M per)
Bouma - 1 yr/$750k
McGratz - 1 yr/$750k
Joey Mac - I yr/$1M

If we can get lucky enough to rid ourselves of Cammy bundled with a pick and/or prospect for another 1st (this year OR next), and we can use the money to sign Nathan Horton if we can lure him here; draft Nathan MacKinnon with our 1st pick in this year's draft, and you could potentially have something along the lines of:

Tanguay - Roy - Iginla
Baertschi - Backlund - Horton
Hudler - Stajan - Stempniak
Glencross - MacKinnon - Clarkson
Horak - Reinhart/Bouwma - Jackman/McGratz

Giordano - Wideman
Brodie - Whitney
Butler - Cundari


And voila! A competitive team effective as of 2013-14, without selling the farm to get it. Affords our younger guys another year or two to develop their game, and keeps the cupboard stocked moving forward. It may seem farfetched to some, but more likely than some I've seen proposed here on hf lol
