As for how we could of accommodated both Halak and Price? This has been done. Capgeek has us at around 4.1 million in cap space. Take away Auld's 1 million, and that puts us at 5.1 million. Bury Laraque in the minors rather than buying him out, and that puts us at 5.6 million. Then take away Eller's 1.3 million at that puts us with 6.9 million to sign both goalies and a bottom-6 center.
What a ridiculous comment.

And as for keeping both goalies the cap hit is not the point. Both goalies are good enough to challenge for a starters job and by having them both here it would cause friction in the dressing room, in the longrun it would cause too many distractions for a team that already has too many distractions.
