Just giving reasonable raises to the RFAs and Downie lowers the available cap room to sign free agents to just over $3 million. To double that room and have enough to sign an impact free agent they would need to let Downie go and replace him with a sub-$1 million guy.

Scott Hartnell ($4.750m) / Claude Giroux ($8.275m) / Jakub Voracek ($4.250m)
Brayden Schenn ($2.750m) / Vincent Lecavalier ($4.500m) / Wayne Simmonds ($3.975m)
Steve Downie ($3.500m) / Sean Couturier ($1.750m) / Matt Read ($3.625m)
Michael Raffl ($1.250m) / Zac Rinaldo ($0.750m) / Jay Rosehill ($0.675m)
Braydon Coburn ($4.500m) / Luke Schenn ($3.600m)
Mark Streit ($5.250m) / Nicklas Grossmann ($3.500m)
Erik Gustafsson ($1.000m) / Mark Alt ($0.782m)
Chris Pronger ($4.941m) /
Steve Mason ($3.500m)
Cal Heeter ($0.800m)
Daniel Briere ($0.000m)
Ilya Bryzgalov ($0.000m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(estimations for 2014-15)
SALARY CAP: $71,100,000; CAP PAYROLL: $67,923,095; BONUSES: $118,333
CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $3,176,905
That's a lot of money for a pretty mediocre roster. I'd assume that Laughton will be centring the 4th line, so that bumps down Rosehill. I don't know if $3.5 mil will get it done for Mason, though and Heeter as back-up is iffy. And Coburn / Schenn as top pair? Yikes.

I know you're assembling to show the cap factor.
