I keep bringing in Lombardi because we SAVED 1M in that situation. Followed by the extra 2M+ we would get from the 2nd round of the playoffs, minus the 1.5M salary from O'Brien and with Hamhuis 4.5M, we DON'T go over the cap. Btw, if we kept Hammer, we wouldn't have felt the need to resign Boullion for our 2nd pairing and just used Franson and Sulzer as our 3rd pairing.
Speaking of salaries, Hamhuis was going to sign here for less than 4.5M. His wife LOVES it here and wives have a TON of pull to what cities players in. Again, you can disagree all you want. But to say that it is not possible is not true. This is my last post about it. But, we didn't trade him at the deadline because we told him, 'Get us to the 2nd round and you will stay. Otherwise, we can't afford you' -- fact.
