Playing around with Capgeek:

- Big 3 for 15 mil
- 1.8 for Burmi
- Redmond, Postma, Kulda, Peluso, get minimum raises
- Burmi, Jokinen, Scheif on third line
- Trouba down at the farm (for now)

Leaves us with 11 million for linemates for Kane, and a backup tender. Adding Weiss for 5 mill, getting Peverley and signing Khudobin leaves us with about 600k in space. But there's lots of problems:

1) No cap space to recall players
2) No room for error with injuries
3) Only Scheifele and Trouba can go down without waivers
4) Logjam at D, I don't think we'll re-sign Clitsome if we keep the other 3 RFAs
5) We can't be as aggressive as I thought

However these issues can be fixed by trading off Burmi, or Byfuglien. I can also see Chevy being fairly aggressive the following year. Jokinen and Stuart come of the books (Stuart might be traded at the deadline), and a lot of the players will be signed. In fact only Redmond, Kulda, Postma, and Peluso/Wright may need contracts (and raises probably). With the cap going up probably 6 mil, and 6.2 mil coming off our books, we'd be sitting very pretty.
