That second link does seem pretty good if a couple of weeks behind.
Yeah, take off $1.5 million from Elias and $1 million from Madden. But also add in a combined $950k for Oduya and LaCoutoure (on the Devils' roster but not on your calculations). Which leaves the number around what's been reported, a mere $15,000 under the cap
buffalo are in a similar position- i think their only 42k under the cap.
