Popular Post J.I.A.H.N Posted November 18, 2019 Popular Post Share Posted November 18, 2019 So, right off the get go, I am not suggesting I have the answer in any way. I am wondering, If I have my math right, and/or I am missing the answer, in some way...…... Today, the Canucks have approx. $30,000 in unspent cap. Roussel, who is on LTIR, gets paid $3,000,000 annually. (and not part of the cap at this point) Now, Roussel will have missed 27 games of the season up to the end of November (approx. .334 of the season = $1,000,000) and 40 games, if he did not officially come back onto the pay roll until the end of December (approx. .488 of the season = 1,463,414) So my questions are...………... #1. Does the missing games and corresponding cap (as above) basically get removed from the $3,000,000 cap hit? #2. Does his conditioning stint in Utica (if he goes) count against the cap? If so...………. #3. How does Benning clear enough cap to become cap compliant? If Benning is allowed to deduct the cap that from the missing games, then he only has to clear somewhere between 1.5 to 2 million in cap, so that would be easy by sending Baertschi and/or Schaller or Leivo (Waivers???) back and/or one of Graovac or McEwen...….but I am not sure, if that is the way they do it? I can not for the life of me, imagine that they would be sending Gaudette back???? Would they? Any answers and thoughts are welcome...……...not panicking, just curious, and not really sure of the answer 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
