Popular Post PunjabiCanucks Posted August 17, 2022 Popular Post Share Posted August 17, 2022 Going into the next season with LTIR we will be cap compliant - However the in 2023-2024: the issue rises with primarily the resigning of Miller and Horvat secondary pieces of Kuzmenko, Dermott, Schenn, Hoglander tertiary pieces of :Burroughs and Keeper Based on current cap space projections we would have 23 M approx to resign the above: Miller and Horvat when resigned can take up 16M, leaving 7M for the rest Kuzmenko being the wild card with unknown can take potentially 2 to 3M and heck if he plays really good 4 to 5M a year Hoglander and Schenn if resigned can take 2M and 1M respectively Lets say 3+2+1 = 6M of the 7 left over, meaning enough to sign 1 depth defenseman. Now I'm not saying its impossible, but the $ value should work even in 2023- 2024. --- In 2024 to 2025 we gain an additional 22 Million approximately with needing to resign Pettersson, Pearson, Dickinson, Podkolzin, Myers and Martin Now Petty can easily have a beast of a season the next 2 years and take a cap of hypothetically 9M, Podkolzin continues to grow and takes a bridge deal like Petey and Boeser etc. for near 4M based on his current projection of getting better unless he has a beast of a season and takes 6M, lets call it 5M. Myers can be resigned for depth near 4M. Meaning those 3= 9 + 5 + 4 = 18M We still have 4M left for a back up goalie, and replacing Pearson, Dickinson, and potentially Martin. Now hopefully those players are traded in the season prior as rentals for other teams, asset management but regardless we have the potential of Karlsson, Klimovich, and Lekkerimaki stepping in at this point at ELC. --- 2025 to 2026 we gain an additional 10M with Boeser, Lazar to resign Now based on current projections maybe both take up 8 to 9m when resigned Furthermore at this point the cap should be going up more into possibly the low 90M giving us not and the rest of the teams an extra 5M in spending power. --- My post is pretty much to say we may not be in such a huge cap fiasco as everyone thinks we may be down the road when we are contending for a cup. I believe with smart resignings of core players and with potential in our young studs we have a chance to do it right. If we can find a #1RD soon while not losing key players we have a shot cap wise! 1 4 3 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
