Hamhuis House For Sale

Ut Oh. Either Dan's been told he's not coming back or he's hedging the strong possibilty they will not give him a competitive bid because the sign is in his yard. Given the length of time houses are sitting, he could be getting a jump on it just in case.

However, with 15 players adding up to $41mm, and an implied cap of $47mm, $6mm to sign at least 8 players does not leave minimum $3mm to sign Dan. Dan would take a home-town discount but Preds can't get even that close. They'll have to replace him with a rookie at close to the min.

Since most of our highest paid players have no trade clauses, our only hope is Arnie or Dumont agree to waive their clauses, we move them for draft picks, then spend the freed up money.

Don't count on it. Arnie and Dumont are being paid over their current value so doubt anyone would trade picks and have to eat the salares.

So, I'm afraid another 1st Round pick gets sent on his way due to our implied cap. Can't blame ownership. If we filled the Barn, they could spead more. This way, they spend the max while still getting full rev sharing.

No better person than Dan Hamhuis. He loves the Preds and Nashville. He doesn't want to go and would take less to stay.

BTW, for $1.5mm, you can have his house.
