Now the lightning have $3,345,834 left to re-sign Cirelli (with Kucherov on LTIR)

And what do they do when Kucherov returns? They are also near the salary cap for next year with only 15 players under contract. They still have a lot of work to do to be cap compliant.

Even with the tax break, this would only equal to 3.5 mil/year max for another team.  

People that think that Hughes will GET anything above 6 mil/year are out to lunch.  Yes he DESERVES more but given all that’s happened, $14 mil will get us both Elias and Hughes signed. 

I think both Hughes and Pettersson sign bridge deals next summer. About 6.5 million per season for Hughes, about 7 - 7.5 for Elias, 2 - 3 year term maximum.


With the league in a flat cap, I think both players will punt and hope that things turn around so that they can sign for 10+, in 2 or 3 years.
