Right now we have just over $10M in cap space and we need to re-sign/sign 4-5 forwards and 1 defenseman. We've got plenty of room still.
Here are the signed guys who will be on the roster next year:
Vatanen (the #6 spot should be his to lose)
Beleskey and Palmieri are both RFAs who don't have a hell of a lot of leverage to get significant raises. I would assume Beleskey is signed for about $1M and Palmieri could be anywhere between $1M and $2.5M depending on how long a contract he signs (I can see a Sbisa type deal where he signs longer term to try and get value by the end of the contract). Then we need to sign a #7 defenseman - that will cost at most $1M if not less. I would think Holland would get a chance at the 4C spot too and he's still on his ELC.
Here is an estimate of what we have:

My Custom Lineup
Bobby Ryan ($5.100m) / Ryan Getzlaf ($8.250m) / Corey Perry ($8.625m)
UFA or Callup ($0.000m) / Nick Bonino ($0.700m) / Kyle Palmieri ($2.000m)
Andrew Cogliano ($2.390m) / UFA or Callup ($0.000m) / Daniel Winnik ($1.800m)
Matt Beleskey ($1.000m) / Peter Holland ($1.295m) / Emerson Etem ($0.870m)
Patrick Maroon ($0.575m) / Brad Staubitz ($0.638m)
Francois Beauchemin ($3.500m) / Sheldon Souray ($3.667m)
Bryan Allen ($3.500m) / Cam Fowler ($4.000m)
Luca Sbisa ($2.175m) / Sami Vatanen ($1.325m)
UFA or Callup ($0.000m) /
Jonas Hiller ($4.500m)
Viktor Fasth ($2.900m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $58,809,217; BONUSES: $850,000
CAP SPACE (25-man roster): $6,340,783
So $6.3M for a 3C (or 2C if Bonino takes Koivu's role on the third line), a 2LW and a 7D. It will be tight but I think we still have a bit of room for upgrades. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see a couple of trades as well.
