# Forwards Pos  2011-12 2012-13 2013-14

$8,250,000 $8,250,000 $8,250,000
2 Tuomo Ruutu  $3,800,000
3 Erik Cole  LW  $3,000,000
4 Jussi Jokinen  LW  $2,500,000 $2,500,000
5 Jeff Skinner  $1,400,000 $1,400,000

11 Zac Dalpe  $875,000 $875,000
12 Jerome Samson  RW  $512,500
13 Troy Bodie

Defense  Pos 
1 Bryan Allen  $2,900,000
2 Tim Gleason  $2,750,000
3 Joe Corvo  $2,250,000
4 Jamie McBain  $850,000
5 Derek Joslin $750,000

Goalies  Pos 
1 Cam Ward  $6,300,000 $6,300,000 $6,300,000
2 Justin Peters  $525,000
Must Spend:
Total Cap $$ = $44,612,500 $2,387,500
Salary Cap = $63,000,000
Salary Floor =  $47,000,000

 

This is assuming:

Pitkanen, Stillman, LaRose, and Harrison are all let go.

Cole is re-signed at 1 year, $3 million
Jussi is re-signed at 2 years, $2.5 million per
Sutter is re-signed at 2 years, $2.5 million per
Tlusty ($1.25 million), Bowman ($1 million), Dwyer ($550k), and Bodie ($550k) all re-signed
Joslin ($750k) and Sanguinetti ($875k) are both re-signed

As you can see, assuming the Cap goes up to $63 million (which is the widely speculated number), the Canes actually HAVE to spend $2.4 million to reach the floor. In this speculative scenario, we need one more D.

Will we be a Cap floor team next year or stay ~$10 million under Cap (which mean we have almost $8.5 million to spend)? How would you spend that free cash? We could have an amazing team if we spent to the Cap, this highlights how good our youth is.
