Ok, Top roster is the current situation for the team. The bottom roster is what I expect for 11-12. To the right side is column showing. The pay raises and where the cash will be coming from.
Leftovers ----> The Preds are currently 1.5 million under the current midpoint and that can be used to spend on UFAS. That's not including the rookie bonuses which have not been cashed in.
Revenue sharing bump ----->The speculation is that the Cap will go up 3 million. Thus the Rev. Sharing will go up 3 million. How do I know this? Every time the cap went up, the Preds spent that much more each year. Ever then, the UFAs leaving will pay for the guys the Preds want to stay.
I slathered on the cash for the RFA's and UFAs simply because I'm not too sure what the contracts will look like next year. Philly gave Nashville a starting point by offering Leino 3 mil a year for SK's contract. I gave SK a 2.5 Million dollar contract but it could be less. Goc got a 2.25 contract.
Roster wise: SK replaces Sullivan, Laakso replaces Sulzer (Only because Laakso is an RFA and Sulzer is a UFA), You had Blum but I had Josi replacing O'Brien, and Halischuk taking Ward's spot on the roster.
Had to look at this, this way, to see what Nashville should aim for. Next year if Goc is signed, Nashville will have 6 centers and that's with Wilson at wing. UFA top 6 Center is the need. Wing wise, the Preds will be stocked unless they make a move to dump a wing.
As I have said before, the cash isn't the problem, it's the will to sign.
