Upcoming Free Agency Part 2

I thought this was necessary to bring back up considering our season is over now. Here is who I want back and who I want out. I heard from an article the the cap space is supposed to rise 900k. Last years cap ceiling was $56.8 million. With the 900k increase the total cap ceiling (assuming the rumor is correct) would come out to be $57.7 million. With that said lets go on to the free agents.

My original statement:

Rangers include:
Girardi -Maybe
Staal -Yes
Valiquette -No
Heikkinen -No
Byers -No
Parenteau - Yes
Prust -Yes
Christensen - Yes
Lisin -No
Prospal -Yes
Jokinen -No
Zaba -Yes
Shelley - Yes
Auld - Yes

For FA signings
Other names include:

Kovalchuk
Lidstrom
Niedermayer
Marleau
Morris (could be a possibility)
Gonchar
Tanguay
Savard
Nabokov
Kubina

Keep in mind that the Higgins + Kotalik for Jokinen + Prust freed up about $3 million.
Thoughts?
We have about $12 million to spend. $8 million to Kovalchuk and the last $4 million to resigning Staal, Girardi, Prust, Shelley, Christensen, Auld, Prospal, Zaba, and Parenteau.

Thoughts?

I didn't bother to check your math, but my thoughts on this are "does this guy really think it's possible to sign 9 players, one of which is Marc Staal, for $4 million?"

Step 1. Sign back up goalie that can play 15 games, take it from there.

We can sign them all but then we can't go after Kovalchuk.

Forgot to add Anders Eriksson as a Ranger. Doubt he will be back next year.
