Shane Hnidy, $757,000

* Yet to sign: Dennis Wideman (RFA).

* Matt Lashoff and Matt Hunwick will contend for NHL jobs next year. But for this model, their salaries are not included.

Goalies

Manny Fernandez, $4.33 million
Tim Thomas, $1.1 million

* Tuukka Rask will most likely spend another season in Providence.

Current cap hit: $54,311,666

Notes: With Dennis Wideman expected to receive at least $3 million annually, the Bruins will be over the $56.7 million cap unless they shed salary before then. Either way, they will have to move some money around to be under the ceiling.
