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.

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).
