The Rangers have $20M committed for 14-15. Tagging. The team can't have more money committed for the following season than the current cap. $64.3m is the cap for 13-14. That $20M will increase with new contracts for Stepan,Hagelin and McDonagh. Subtract $6,666,667 for Richards amnesty buyout. The new CBA gives teams flexibility.

13. Tagged Payroll Room Beginning on March 1 of any League Year (2013/14 League Year and beyond), the Upper Limit shall be increased by 10% for the sole purpose of calculating Tagged Payroll Room.
Page 4 of the MOU

Teams can exceed the upper limit in future commitments for the following season after March 1. The Rangers can have more than $64.3M committed for 14-15. They will still need to be compliant with the upper limit for 14-15 but that's in October 2014. The previous CBA allowed teams to exceed the upper limit by 10% in the summer.

The Rangers can sign their unrestricted free agents for 2014 this summer. The space is there.
