Let's say the cap only goes to $58MM. You have $17MM left for the rest of the team and there are UFAs under 30 years old available and who will cost about $8MM. Is that the situation the Rangers should be in? I really don't see either Jagr or Sundin signing for only one year. I also don't see how the Rangers can really afford to have both of them either (and address other issues). Perhaps Sather will show me tomorrow how that can be done.
completely incorrect. All bonuses must be added on to this years cap because technically the NHLPA can opt out of the CBA after this year and therefore there are no lay-over bonuses allowed.
