Tye McGinn ($0.775m) / Claude Giroux ($3.750m) / Jakub Voracek ($4.250m)
Jay Rosehill ($0.675m) / Brayden Schenn ($3.110m) / Wayne Simmonds ($3.975m)
Bobby Ryan ($5.100m) / Maxime Talbot ($1.750m) / Jason Akeson ($0.900m)
Simon Gagne ($2.000m) / Sean Couturier ($1.375m) / Matt Read ($0.900m)
Scott Laughton ($1.107m) /
Zac Rinaldo ($0.750m) /
Kimmo Timonen ($6.000m) / Mark Streit ($5.250m)
Chris Pronger ($4.941m) / Luke Schenn ($3.600m)
Andrej Meszaros ($4.000m) / Bruno Gervais ($0.825m)
Nicklas Grossmann ($3.500m) / Erik Gustafsson ($0.851m)
Marc-Andre Bourdon ($0.613m) / Oliver Lauridsen ($0.644m)
Steve Mason ($1.500m)
Jonas Hiller ($4.500m)
Buyout: Oskars Bartulis ($0.100m)
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: $66,922,522; BONUSES: $2,960,000
CAP SPACE (26-man roster): $337,478

After the season starts, LTIR Pronger and Bourdon. That adds about $5.5M cap space to sign a FA or two that you have made deals with pending the LTIR.
Give Laviolette until Xmas to make this roster work or he goes as a Christmas present to the fans.
No thanks to trading Coburn and Hartnell for Ryan and Hiller. Hope those aren't your lines either, complete waste to get Ryan then put him on a line with Talbot and Akeson. That defense is starting to look atrocious, especially with no Kimmo next year and aging Streit. Can't get rid of Coburn with no replacement; Risto wouldn't be ready in time.
