I could see this happening:
  • Stepan signs a 2 year bridge deal @ $3M
  • No trades are done initially
  • Asham and Powe are waived, clear and report to Hartford
  • Johnson is cut and starts in Hartford
  • Other noteables in Hartford include: Fast(h), Hrivik, Kristo, Haley, McIllraith and a surprise training camp invitee
  • Miller, Lindberg and Mashinter make the team out of camp
  • Both Cally and Hagelin start the year on LTIR sitting out the first 10+ games as a precaution and to help form the team going fwd

WE wind up with a roster like this on opening day:

FORWARDS
Rick Nash ($7.800m) / Derek Stepan ($3.000m) / Mats Zuccarello ($1.150m)
Brad Richards ($6.667m) / Derick Brassard ($3.200m) / J.T. Miller ($1.244m)
Chris Kreider ($1.325m) / Brian Boyle ($1.700m) / Benoit Pouliot ($1.300m)
Taylor Pyatt ($1.550m) / Oscar Lindberg ($0.760m) / Derek Dorsett ($1.633m)
Dominic Moore ($1.000m) / Brandon Mashinter ($0.605m)

DEFENSEMEN
Ryan McDonagh ($4.700m) / Dan Girardi ($3.325m)
Marc Staal ($3.975m) / Anton Stralman ($1.700m)
Michael Del Zotto ($2.550m) / John Moore ($0.965m)
Justin Falk ($0.975m)

GOALTENDERS
Henrik Lundqvist ($6.875m)
Martin Biron ($1.300m)

OTHER
Buried: Arron Asham ($0.075m)
Buried: Darroll Powe ($0.142m)

LTIR
Ryan Callahan ($4.275m)
Carl Hagelin ($2.250m)

------
SALARY TOTALS
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000
CAP PAYROLL: $66,040,833
BONUSES: $1,362,500
CAP SPACE (23-man roster - 2 players on LTIR):- $378,333

Hartford then has the following to choose from for their team:

Forwards
Asham
Powe
Kristo
Hrivik
Bourque
Fast
Yogan
St.Croix
K. Jean
Haley
Nicholls
Carroll (AHL contract)
Kantor
J.Wilson
Surprise camp invitee??

Defensemen
Johnson
McIlrath
Syvret
Allen
Bickel
Hughes
Noreau
Dodero (AHL contract)
Nash (AHL contract)
Marcou (AHL contract)

When Cally and Hags return - then there will likely be some roster movement... Not very promising purely offensively (to begin with at least) but when all are healthy should be a good team with depth like never before.
If they are ready before 10 games are played and never go on LTIR we will see somebody moved out earlier. The usual suspects Pyatt or Boyle perhaps?? In addition I would not mind a $1M + $1M (bonuses) deal thrown at Vinny Prospal. But that is just me. Could provide some valuable points in a grunting 82 game year. Could work cap wise too..
