Galchenyuk or Subban? Habs can't have both this year.
 
Looking at the salary cap situation for the Habs, it now stands at $66.5M. With Galchenyuk counting for over $3M on the cap if he stays with the Habs all year, the Habs will not have the cap space to sign Subban to anything over $3M a year.

So who would you rather have all year on the Habs, Galy or Subban?

I`m assuming you did not consider Gomez` buyout right

Gomez buy out still counts against the cap for this year only.

But how does Galchenyuk count for 3 million?

Obviously people would rather have Subban and while I haven't read through the new CBA, I assume there's still a bonus cushion and the odds of Galchenyuk making all of hos bonuses are really low, unless he's an elite player.

Ah yeah, that is true. As for Chuckie, he has bonuses however I doubt he will reach them so it should not have an effect (they would count against next year`s cap correct?)

See capgeek... Galy has bonus money due to being a high first round pick. His cap hit is $3.25M to account for all possible bonus money.

Patty Roy 01-20-2013 11:56 AM

I don't think that's the case. Capgeek is currently showing them at $64.3 with a 25 man roster (Blunden, Palushaj, Nokelainen and Gallagher are included). We can easily send Gallagher down tomorrow, then Blunden or Nokelainen when he's healthy. We could move Weber out for a pick when PK is re-signed.

Lots of options. We can have both Galchenyuk and Subban on the roster this season.

As of today... Habs would be over the cap if they signed Subban to a $4M deal. They would have to make a move such as send Galy back to junior to free up cap space.

Weber is as good as gone. So count him out. And I don't think Blunden will be a factor.

Subban ainec for me

Did they remove the bonus cushion in the new CBA?

Lafleurs Guy 01-20-2013 12:17 PM

Galchenyuk should go back to the minors regardless of what happens with Subban.

It's still there.

Why is it impossible to keep both? Looking at CapGeek, the salary cap is fixed at 70 mil for this season.

Cap space: $5,881,213 (and more if you remove players like Blunden, Gallagher, Weber, Palushaj, Nokelainen)

This. And so, I think I'll just close this thread, because the premise is completely wrong... Habs have no issues keeping both.
