With a couple of buyouts and a contract overage penalty, the Bruins have 18 players signed on for a total annual cap hit of $57.9 million at the moment. Three more forwards and a defenseman would have to sneak in with minimum salaries to snuggle up to the ceiling, but if Marc Savard and Tim Thomas are eventually moved, the Bruins can definitely lift their average cap hit remaining significantly.
