The one thing that would provide some leeway is that if Pitkanen can't start the season you get cap relief for his replacement, so theoretically we could sign another $4.5 million dollar player.

The smart thing to do though would be to sign a cheaper player in addition to a bigger FA signing under the existing cap, then figure out some other way to get to the cap at the trade deadline.

I keep going back to Scuderi because he fits a need and would be relatively inexpensive. The lesser player could be somebody like, Doug Murray.

Faulk-Gleason
Scuderi-McBain
Harrison-Murray
Bergeron (or Murphy)

Not so great until Joni comes back, but when he does it looks much better, and you flip McBain in a trade to clear the cap (the difference between McBain and Murray would only be something like 500K).
