Anyway, $7.3m plus Prongers $5m on LTIR is $12.3m plus the rise in cap which could be another $5m so it could be $17ish.

first off learn LTIR---you dont get all his salary and free to spend.

second----dont see the cap going up $5M in one year. Max would be about $3M.

Lets look at their contracts.......

under contract for 2014:

11 forwards
4 dmen
0 goalies

cap space about $7M + Pronger LTIR (<$4.9M) + $3M if cap goes up

They need to sign Schenn + 2 forwards + 3 Dmen + 2 goalies......

have fun trying to do that. Say you have $14M to spend

Schenn say $4M
2 cheap forwards $1M each
2 cheap Dmen $1M each
1 more expensive Dman $4M

you still have to sign 2 goalies.....
