Here is a pure fantasy line-up. I know it won't happen as thats a lot of players moving and signing.

Nyquist, Andersoon, Smith and Kindl are all RFA's and have gotten raises. If we wanted to cut even more money to be able to offer to the UFA's we could offer them the standard amount.

Trade Tootoo for a 3rd.
Trade Emmerton for a 4th- 5th
Buyout Samuelsson
Waive Lashoff

Johan Franzen ($3.955m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Nathan Horton ($5.000m)
Ryane Clowe ($3.750m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Damien Brunner ($2.250m)
Gustav Nyquist ($1.100m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Justin Abdelkader ($1.800m)
Bryan Bickell ($1.900m) / Joakim Andersson ($0.900m) / Tomas Tatar ($0.840m)
Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m) / Patrick Eaves ($1.200m) /

Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)
Kyle Quincey ($3.775m) / Brendan Smith ($1.200m)
Danny DeKeyser ($1.350m) / Jakub Kindl ($1.400m)
Carlo Colaiacovo ($2.500m) /

Jimmy Howard ($5.292m)
Jonas Gustavsson ($1.500m)

Buyout: Mikael Samuelsson ($0.000m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $64,694,545; BONUSES: $1,010,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $615,455

With a roster like this we get a lot tougher to play against. All 4 lines have big bodies or guys that like to hit. The Bickell for Tootoo is a wash as their salaries are the same but Bickell adds size.

After looking at it the amounts for some of the UFA's may be low. We still have 615 K and could cut more by lowballing the RFA's.

I would also be fore buying out Quincey and offering his Money to Scuderi.
