Putting The Pieces Together: No Room for Zucc, Del Zotto?

Current look at NY Rangers roster:

Hagelin (2.250) - Stepan (?.???) - Nash (7.800)
Kreider (1.325) - Brassard (3.200) - Callahan (4.275)
Pouliot (1.300) - Richards (6.667) - Boyle (1.700)
Pyatt (1.550) - D. Moore (1.000) - Dorsett (1.633)
Haley (0.600) - Powe (1.067) - Asham (1.000)

McDonagh (4.700) - Girardi (3.325)
Staal (3.975) - Stralman (1.700)
J. Moore (0.965) - Del Zotto (2.550)
Falk (?.???) - A. Johnson (0.600)

Lundqvist (6.875)
Biron (1.300)

TOTAL: $61.358 million (just under $3 million cap room to sign Stepan & Falk)

*Let's assume Falk signs for a hair more than his qualifying offer, for a cap hit of $866,667/year

Now that makes the payroll $62.225 million, with only Stepan left unsigned. Unfortunately, $2.075 million/year is still not enough cap space to retain Stepan, even to a 1 or 2 year "bridge" contract.

** Let's assume Michael Del Zotto is traded for picks/prospects, and newly-acquired LD Danny Syrvet (with a cap hit of $587,500) is called up from Hartford. Now the roster would look like:

Hagelin (2.250) - Stepan (?.???) - Nash (7.800)
Kreider (1.325) - Brassard (3.200) - Callahan (4.275)
Pouliot (1.300) - Richards (6.667) - Boyle (1.700)
Pyatt (1.550) - D. Moore (1.000) - Dorsett (1.633)
Haley (0.600) - Powe (1.067) - Asham (1.000)

McDonagh (4.700) - Girardi (3.325)
Staal (3.975) - Stralman (1.700)
J. Moore (0.965) - Falk (0.867)
Syrvet (0.588) - A. Johnson (0.600)

Lundqvist (6.875)
Biron (1.300)

*** Now with this roster, a total payroll of $60.275, NY has slightly over $4 million to spend on Stepan's new contract without going over the salary cap.

Hagelin (2.250) - Stepan*(4.000) - Nash (7.800)
Kreider (1.325) - Brassard (3.200) - Callahan (4.275)
Pouliot (1.300) - Richards (6.667) - Boyle (1.700)
Pyatt (1.550) - D. Moore (1.000) - Dorsett (1.633)
Haley (0.600) - Powe (1.067) - Asham (1.000)

McDonagh (4.700) - Girardi (3.325)
Staal (3.975) - Stralman (1.700)
J. Moore (0.965) - Falk*(0.867)
Syrvet (0.588) - A. Johnson (0.600)

Lundqvist (6.875)
Biron (1.300)


TOTAL PAYROLL: $64.26 million (~$40,000 below salary cap)
