There is still work to be done, especially when you consider that the two signings today just got us to the floor, but based on what we know now here is a potential opening night lineup. I have included Twenty-Three roster players andd the two buyouts. All salaries are set with the exception of Blum, so I used his salary from last year. This leaves us with about $14mm of cap space. I realize it could be Roussel for Eckholm, or Flynn for Mueller, but it is a first shot. Comments?
