Next year we'll be at the cap though. The thing is, will it be worth it for us to be at the cap with the roster we're bound to have? It's an interesting question.

I played around on Cap Geek just for fun, and had Hickey, Lewis, Westgarth, and Purcell on the roster (put Purcell's cap hit at 1 million), with Richardson off. I toyed with the idea of taking Moller off and leaving Richardson on, but did not. I came up with 7.427 million of cap room including the bonus cushion.

We could make another addition, but where? The two third line players I would've liked (Moen) or liked to have back (Kostopoulous) are gone. We could send out a contract or make a deal for a puck moving defenseman making around 2 million or so, but that player would have to have an expiring contract. Then we wouldn't keep Hickey up, obviously. We have quite a bit of room if Dean really wants to do something.

I think we're done though.
