So, as I see it, we should have around $7-ish after signing a backup, the RFA's, and the #4. If SK hits the K, that bumps up to $10-ish.
Don't forget the Poile factor he has yet to spend within 3 mil of the cap in any year
06-07 was the closest he ever came at 3.75 mil below the cap.

2008 the Luke Schenn hype, given it was likely due to the Leafs 5th pick overall and everyone knows the Leafs always pick the best player in the draft no matter what position they draft. Ironic that was the same draft we get Josi at 38 overall in the second round as well.
