Though you are right about sending players down
One D HAS to be sent down which saves another 900k (775k in Potter's case).
So if we don't want to add the bonuses onto next year... we have 1.3 million + 900k if we send Larsen down to get to 23 players on the active roster = 2.2 million in space.
-Sign Malhotra to 1.3 million (2.2 - 1.3 = 900k in space + 900k from Lander being sent down to the AHL to get us back to 23 players) gives us 1.8 million in cap space again

So we'd still have 1.8 million to work with. We could realistically send down Potter and save another 775k = 2.5 million in space to sign someone else.... maybe Raymond or Mueller would take a 2 million/1 year offer and we'd have the 500k extra for wiggle room

Go into the season with
Hall/Gagner/Yakupov
Perron/Nuge/Eberle
Mueller/Gordon/Hemsky
Joensuu/Malhotra/Jones
Smyth and Brown

Petry and Smid
JSchultz and Ference
Belov and NSchultz
Grebs

Dubs
Labarb
That's ugly. Clearly there isn't the interest in Mueller, that's fine. But Malhotra is DONE, finished AT HOCKEY. So he should stop being considered an option for anyone in the NHL.
