So that's 3.75.

Schenn might actually drop from his 3.11 to 3.00 or so.

Couturier's cap might go up by about a million at most putting him around 2.50.

So that's a total increase of about 5.00 against our cap.

Right now we have 13.00m to spend (Meszaros is off the books next year even if he stays this year) along with a potentially rising cap. Add another 6.00m if Timonen does retire, and we feasibly have 19.00+ to spend on 3 re-signings and other acquisitions.

Assuming the 3 raises take out 5.00 of that, then we have 14.00+ to spend AFTER all three are locked up.

That gives us our lineup of...

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
Simmonds - Schenn - xxxxx
xxxxx - Couturier - xxxxx
Rinaldo - Laughton - Talbot

xxxxx - Schenn
Streit - Coburn
Gustafsson - Grossmann


With 14m+ to spend AFTER Giroux, Schenn, and Couturier have their next contract locked in place.
There's always the possibility of them trading both Mez AND Coburn this summer. Mez I think is a close to sure thing and Coburn is a toss up at this point.
