Eastern Conference Playoff Contenders 2011 Signed Players and Estimated Cap Hits

Since there's been so much talk about cap space and cap hits, I wanted to look at the Eastern Conference contenders and see just where each team lies regarding filling its roster and cap room. I'm only going to consider their returning players from their current roster, since I'm not up-to-date on who's expecting to call up which prospects. For the sake of time and my sanity, I'll be looking at the teams that scored more than 80 regular-season points, which are the top ten teams (the playoff teams + NYR and Atlanta). Please note that some numbers may be off slightly due to bonuses (I tried to account for them as best I could); the differences shouldn't be more than $0.5MM or so for any given team.
