Or in other words: You can't spend more for next season than the upper limit for this season. It's exactly the same.
caphit of multi-year contracts + caphit of expiring contracts + current caproom = upper limit.
Based on one-way contracts:
Briere (6.50), Richards (5.75), Carter (5.27), Hartnell (4.20), Giroux (3.75), Laperriere (1.16), Shelley (1.10), Betts (0.70), Timonen (6.33), Pronger (4.92), Meszaros (4.00), Carle (3.44), Coburn (3.20), Walker (1.70), Bartulis (0.60), Leighton (1.55), Backlund (0.80) =
Current Cap =
Current Space (Based on one-way contracts) =
If what you're saying about one-way contracts is correct, then we have 4.43m to sign Leino to for next year.
