JM_ Posted July 30, 2020 Share Posted July 30, 2020 (edited) I was doing some cap calc's - and if these are off please kindly point out needed corrections - and it seems to me like these are two likely scenario's from the looming cap crunch: 1) worst case: We have to lose Tanev and Stecher, and Loui can only be papered to Utica (I'm assuming that will still be allowed even with no actual AHL season). Sutter and Baer bought out. Toffoli re-ups at 5, Marky at 5.75. That means we have to put out a d core of: Edler, Myers, Hughes, Benn, Juolevi, Rathbone, and one UFA for 1.5 million max. Good F group tho. Adventure time d. 2) best case: Since it looks assured Marky will be back, that means Demko has to go. We trade Demko + Loui to Detroit for something meaningless cap wise. Demko and Bernier could split the season, Detroit protects Demko and has their next #1 goalie. Sutter and Baer bought out. Toffoli re-ups at 5, Marky at 5.75. This would leave us again with a solid F group, and Tanev or another UFA D to improve the d corps. Does the math below work?
