In Response to Re: Krejci 3-year extension
[QUOTE]Let's suppose Chiarelli wants to keep the roster (aside from subbing Caron for Pouliot) intact and that he signs extensions after polishing off one of those $10,000 dollar champagne bottles. CAPGEEK.COM CAP CALCULATOR FORWARDS Milan Lucic ($4.083m) / David Krejci ($5.250m) / Nathan Horton ($4.000m) Brad Marchand ($2.500m) / Patrice Bergeron ($5.000m) / Tyler Seguin ($3.550m) Rich Peverley ($3.250m) / Chris Kelly ($3.000m) / Jordan Caron ($1.100m) Shawn Thornton ($2.000m) / Greg Campbell ($2.000m) / Daniel Paille ($2.000m) DEFENSEMEN Zdeno Chara ($6.916m) / Dennis Seidenberg ($3.250m) Andrew Ference ($2.250m) / Adam McQuaid ($1.566m) Joe Corvo ($3.000m) / Johnny Boychuk ($3.000m) GOALTENDERS Tim Thomas ($5.000m) / Tuukka Rask ($3.000m) BUYOUTS: Patrick Eaves ($0.258m) CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter) (these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion) SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $65,975,000; BONUSES: $2,850,000 CAP SPACE (20-man roster): -$1,675,000 That's pretty close to working, as-is. Some of those salaries would certainly be lower. What's more, if there is a bonus cushion again next season, this roster would fit under the cap.

Kelly @ 3M? A bit high, but reasonable and could see this happening.
Thornton @ 2M? Never, I predict he comes back @ less than 1M (and as the 10th or 11th FWD) or not at all.
Campbell @ 2M? Fair, I hope he comes back.
Paille @ 2M? Undecided on this one, probably a fair salary, but I'd be okay letting the youngsters fight for this spot instead.
Corvo @ 3M? I think this is too high...he has played reasonably well, but will be 35. Drop it down to 2M for 1 year and I'd take him.
Boychuck @ 3M? No...just no.
Tuukka @ 3M? A big cap hit for a backup goalie, but he isn't your average backup goalie... I'd prefer a shorter deal at lesser dollars.Maybe 2-3 years @2.5 (100% raise)
Remember Lucic, Horton, Seguin, and Marchand are free agents the following season too...
