Pocket the cap space - flexibility - wait for the right opportunity to come along that matches the vision* for this team going forward.

I completely Agree with you!
I dont want anyone like Richards...no one for a very long term deal and at that cap hit.
I'm however sure that players like Roy and Ryder will take shorter term for less money. Neither has ever made anything close to $6.6 and they are not star players.
If however, we cannot find anyone for around $3 mill for short term, then sure, dont do anything. Keep the cap for re-signing our own!
