Here's a final update of the Avs salary cap situation going into today's free agency feeding frenzy. I've corrected Cumiskey's cap number and removed Michael Vernace as it appears he was not tendered a QO on Monday. I've also updated the salary cap to $56.8 million, although I will be extremely shocked if the Avs spend up to the cap max.
Roughly, the Avalanche have about $9.5 million to add about 5 players (either through free agency or promotion from within the organization). However, at least three of those slots project to be towards the bottom level of the depth chart (meaning low salaries).
