Cap space is huge now a days, and unless we amnesty Grabovski, Liles or Komisarek, we will not be as great cap wise as most people think.
I would say the chances of this are pretty good.

We have:
Phaneuf
Gunnarsson
Gardiner
Franson
Fraser (assuming he is healthy)

What we need is another steady d-man. We have tons of offence from Gardiner, Franson and Phaneuf; and all three are more reliable defensively (and occasionally throw some hits). Though I think there's also a good chance he gets traded.
