Refute it if you like, but there is plenty of room for him on this roster.
I'm sorry, but those numbers do not make sense. Look at where we are right now: We have $750,000K in cap space. Replace SOB with Hammer and we go over the cap. I'm not sure why you are including Lombardi in the equation... he was going to be signed regardless of our situation on D.

This isn't a money problem. I can see that we would have the money. It is a cap problem since we can't spend past the midpoint. There would have to be significant roster moves in order to fit Hammer. You can say there is plenty of room for him, but the numbers do not support your theory.
