Nuxfanabroad Posted October 4, 2015 Share Posted October 4, 2015 Would say the Canes seem a pretty good trade partner, for some repeat business. Hockey'sCap has them at about 61mill/21 players-lots of cap space. Long term, wonder how they're doing financially? With Staal coming up for a re-sign, bet they'd like to dump a pricey vet, or two. So we send them some young potential, & expiring contracts. Van: Prust, Sbisa, Vey, Baertschi(8 mill total, this season), 2016 1st rounder(top 5 protected/shift to 2017, otherwise) Canes: (LW & RW'er), Jeff Skinner(they retain 500k per season), & Haydn Fleury -No idea what they'd want for Skinner, but he's had concussion issues. Four yrs left x 5.75 mill. We'd cover 5.2, per yr. -If injuries hit him again, we've got Shinkaruk for some insurance on wings. -They just drafted Hanifin(another LHD), so might deem Fleury worth grabbing another 1st rounder Essentially they add about 3.5 mill to their cap, this yr-however they dump a 24 million dollar LT-commitment. A 3 or 4 skater for 1, would sure simplify our roster. Surprisingly Skinner's still only 23 yrs old. Daniel - Henrik - Burrows Skinner - Bo Horvat - Vrbata Higgins - Sutter - Hansen Gaunce - Cracknell - Dorsett Virtanen/ McCann (give 'em both 9 & probably keep only 1; if both excel, perhaps demote Cracker) D: Edler - Tanev Hamhuis - Weber Hutton - Biega Bartkowski - Corrado Sbisa drives me nuts-like the Scarecrow from 'Wizard Of Oz'. We sacrifice next yr's 1st, but soon will have Edler, Hutton & Fleury patrolling the left side. The whole shebang would leave us with about 3 mill in available cap space.
