Put together a Stanley Cup Winning team with a $37.5 Million Payroll

Since the Owners/Bettman/Fans want to reign in the big spenders and level the playing field in the NHL, show us your fiscally responsible Stanley Cup Winning team.

I'll put mine together later.

Unrealistic though, looks like all those guys are on rookie contracts.

Here's a real quick one...I tried to take all aspects of the game into consideration.

Kovalchuk (1.13) - Lecavalier (2.625) - St. Louis (1.5)
Tanguay (1.5) - Marleau (2.3) - Havlat (0.96)
Doan (2.8) - Handzus (1.5) - Walker (1.95)
Simon (1.5) - Ruutu (1.1) - Tootoo (0.575)

Chara (2.4) - McCabe (3.5)
Gill (2) - Timonen (2)
Warrener (1.8) - Kubina (2.25)

Luongo (1.9)
Kiprusoff (0.88)

Total = $36.17 million

There is really no point in this topic. Anyone can take all the best rookies, and underpaid players and put them together to make a great team for under the proposed cap. But the fact is, no one is going to be able to secure all the best bang-for-buck players on one team. It would make more sense to take your current roster, and trade away the big money players to other teams for reasonable compensation....ie. no Yashin and a first for Kovalchuk.

and as soon as you win a Cup all these elite players will DEMAND raises (if you don't meet the demands they'll hold out) and there goes your 37 million salary cap. Successful teams have to pay their players more. It works that way every time. You'll occasionally see teams like the Flames overachieve and reach the Finals but even then they get to face the increased salary expectations that success brings with it.
In short, you may be able to pick and choose an NHL team that could win a Cup on the budget you've alloted but it's not in the least bit 'realistic' and doesn't reflect the reality of the game as a business. Nor will it ever.

I think everyone here realizes that, but this is just for fun.

Everyone needs to stop using guys like Kovalchuk and Heatley that are really making 5 or 6 million a season due to bonuses.
