So let's say $40m in cap space but only 6 players signed. Let's say Toews/Kane each get $9m per year. 8 players signed, $22m in cap space.
So now we need to sign at least 13-14 more players w/ only $22m in space.
Assuming TT, Danault make the team, that's 12 players to sign with $20m in space.
Saad's raise....good question, I'll assume he gets $3.5m per year. 11 more players to sign with only $16.5m left
Morin & Shaw & Pirri get a raise next year, let's assume they get $4.5m between them. 8 moreuh players, $12m in space.
We only have 2 d-men signed....so that brings us to Leddy and Clendening. Let's give Leddy another raise to $4m per year. 7 players left, $8m in space. Clendening....$1.5m per year. 6 players left, $6.5m in cap space.....
Adding in Hammer's contract....5 players left to sign....only $2.5m in space....clearly headed for some cap "issues."
Who cares about 2015/16. Enjoy this for now and worry about 2 years from now later.
