I am not saying your wrong but i went on cap geek and made this preliminary roster with Streit signed at his rumored 5.5 cap hit. Also has Briere and Bryz bought out. As well as pronger since he will be on LTIR. Some people may dispute what I gave Giroux, Schenn, Couts, and Gus but I think they are close. As far as Mason, I was really not sure so it could be less than I put giving us more cap space.

My Custom Lineup
Scott Hartnell ($4.750m) / Claude Giroux ($7.500m) / Jakub Voracek ($4.250m)
Braden Schenn ($3.200m) / sean Couturier ($3.000m) / Wayne Simmonds ($3.975m)
Maxime Talbot ($1.750m) / Scott Laughton ($1.107m) / Zac Rinaldo ($0.750m)
Jay Rosehill ($0.675m) / Adam Hall ($0.700m) /
Erik Gustafsson ($1.500m) / Luke Schenn ($3.600m)
Mark Streit ($5.500m) / Braydon Coburn ($4.500m)
Nicklas Grossmann ($3.500m)
Steve Mason ($4.000m)
Buyout: Oskars Bartulis ($0.100m)
Buyout: Danny Briere ($0.000m)
Buyout: Chris Pronger ($0.000m)
Buyout: Ilya Bryzgalov ($0.000m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $54,356,667; BONUSES: $0
CAP SPACE (17-man roster): $9,943,333

We would have almost 10 million in cap space left, not to mention if the cap goes up from 64.3 million. So ten million to sign 2 top 9 forwards, a top six defenseman, a 7th defenseman and a backup goalie. Its not the best situation, but it isnt that bad. If Gus plays well this year we could move Coburn to make space for a potential top pairing defenseman.
