i would guess that they're stashing cap space, playing a kid who has a strong camp, and picking up a playoff stud RW late in the season ...although whoever said 'owen nolan' sees into my heart of hearts, even if it's a dumb sentimental idea.
They're not stashing cap space, or if so *very* little. If they're using Poti's LTIR exemption then they're sitting exactly at the cap all season. So unless Alzner comes in much cheaper than expected (sounds like that's an obvious no) or they move around more players they're still not banking anything all season.
