I know. I don't know what I wrote that would suggest that I don't know that.

That doesn't change the fact that they'll have over $12,000 in daily LTIR exemptions with Mitchell and Bolduc on LTIR. Now whether or not they can use that for a permanent replacement depends on Mitchell's prognosis.

If Mitchell is put on LTIR there would likely be no way to bring him back before the play-offs assuming he can get healthy.

If they anticipate getting him back before the play-offs then there is no real room to make a move.
Agreed. My post was based on the premise that they believe he's done until the playoffs. I thought that was pretty clear.
