I mean, if we get him and sign him for 6.5-7 per year, then we are going to be in huge trouble for Coburn's deal.
That's 44.78 million.
You're basically looking at sacrificing everyone else on the roster and there's not even a goalie on that team.
Heck, if the cap goes eventually does drop to 53-54 mill, that's less than 10 million to sign a goalie, 3 defensemen, and 7 forwards.
You're basically giving us a 2 year window before we have to trade everybody and a lot of the guys on that list have NTCs.
First off, Coburn isn't up until AFTER next season, and second, there's little chance he'll be getting 5 mil. He'll still be an RFA so expect soemthing along the lines of 3-3.5 mil. Not a huge difference but still some. Third, we will be out from under Jones' contract by that time so his money goes to re-signing Coburn. Sbisa or Bodrov slide in to take Jones' spot on the roster and the combined salary or Sbisa/Bodrov plus an extended Coburn is about = current Coburn + Jones.
Next, I'd trade JVR for Schneider and an 09. I let Biron walk and re-sign Nitty for 2-2.5 mil. We pay about 3 mil for 2 goalies for the next 2 years insread of nearly 5 mil like we are right now.
