So the gist of the rumor is that were gonna sign wiz and marky?
So lets take a quick look at the roster as it stands and figure out if this is possible,
This assumes that spacek can indeed be traded,
without the xxxx's its about 41.6
Assuming caps about 63 like were hearing, that gives us 21.4 to sign a 40 point winger markov wiz and gorges along with a backup,
So the backup would get roughly a mil like auld so that's 20.4 left
Gorges is probably gonna get around 3.5m leaves about 16.9 left,
Markov if he signs a long term like 6 year deal would probably get around 5 but he'll likely only sign for 2 years at 5.75, leaves us about 11.15
Wiz wants around between 4.5-5.5, so you can assume if they do sign him itll be for about four years at 5.25. Leaves us about 5.9 mil
The winger wants about 3.5m usually, so that takes them too 2.4m cap space
Cap used would be 60.35
Leaves a bit of money for moderate raises to price and subban but you can almost guarantee that if this is the roster then gomez will be gone after next year to give price 5 and subban 3-4. Hell it could be done with spacek as the seventh but Ive got a vibe that it would be tight to the hilt with that.
Jesus though if they could amass that D the montreal Defense could realistically put up 160+ points, I drool at thinking of that in front of Price, it be damn near unstoppable.
Also worth mentioning is that Montreal has a few defensive defenseman prospects in the fold such as Nash and tinordi and replacing Gill may not be as hard as it seems in a year or two so that 2.25 could be added, its just the pacioretty subban and price contracts thatll cause the fuss
