In what world does Suter only get 4 million dollars? :lol:

The issue isn't whether they can fit them under the cap, the issue is whether they can afford to spend to the cap. The answer is that they can't. Suter will be let go in order to sign Weber for the rest of his career.

I think that Suter will want a little more then 4M...

Im hoping that the Coyotes will knock off the Preds this round, if Nashville makes it to the conference finals im sure that Suter will probably take a pay cut and re-sign because he will believe that they can make it back there next year.

If the Preds do get knocked out in the 2nd and he decides its time to go to a new team I say go all in for a guy like this. I would seriously pay upwards of 6-7M for him.

The reason they have trouble sustaining players is because they are one of those markets that can't always spend up to the cap like we used to be.

There ownership sitaution has been in shambles at times since there expansion, there considered an "internal budget team"

This should sort of explain it

As a team competing in a salary cap league, Nashville has been long-considered an internal budget team, meaning they cannot afford to get up to the $64 million salary cap. Nashville’s approximate budget is in the mid-$50 million range. Such a low spending limit makes for a major difference in the quality of player the team can afford.

Idiots? I think the OP is thinking of a Ehrhoff deal for Suter, well If not then your line-up is wack. If Suter is signed for te. Years, he should be in the 47-55 million range.

Radulov will sign for nothing short of 5 mil a season.

A lot of dumb signings here...
