Hutton and Hellberg are our 2nd and 3rd goalies in some incarnation. That's not going to change.

I don't understand how bonuses are not factored into that number though as Forsberg and Watson both are scheduled to make less cash than their cap hit. Also, as for bonuses, you can exceed the salary cap by up to 10% based on bonuses during the season.

Right now our cap number is at $7 or $8 mil, whatever bonus Weber was paid on July 1st. Spaling is moveable as is Smith and if they don't make a move, I expect Beck to start on Milwaukee or a trade to go down if Beck simply forces his way onto the roster.

I'm not convinced we are done. We know they stated last week that there are 5-6 depth guys to sign to play in Milwaukee and I believe Poile is remaining active in the trade market and also has a good pulse on one more NHL free agent (Grabovski). He still has some wiggle room to go...
