J.I.A.H.N Posted February 23, 2015 Share Posted February 23, 2015 Just finished reading A NEW BEGINNING's post and yeah, I wonder where will we get all the cap space we will need to sigh those contracts? The easiest way in my view is to Trade a big name, big contract.......it really comes down to pay me now or pay me later........we have a choice of who we want to loose, until this summer, but teams will not give the return we expect, if we are under the gun. My suggestion is to trade Vrbata at the deadline because: #1. He only has 1 year left in his contract #2. Would probably had a decent return to another playoff team #3. He is 33 years old #4 Trading his $5 million dollar contract gives us cap room to sign our RFA's and UFA's #5. Regardless of his goals, both Burrows and Kassian have shown that they can play in his place......are they better? No, but they give us the capspace we need going forward. Not trading him for picks will really put pressure on our cap space I agree........would you rather keep Tanev and the other free agents or Vrbatta.........look! Benning could not have understood that the Canadian dollar was going to drop this much this year! The cap just isn't going to go up that much IMO Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
