RangerBoy can correct me on the math, but keeping 1.164m in space with Avery on the roster throughout the season allows us to add a ~4.5m-5m player at the deadline. Anything that's available at the deadline will be easily added whether we keep Avery on the roster or not. Unless something changes, that is... like calling up Erixon midway through the year. By the way, we add another 525k or 600k to the space when either Bell or Bickel gets sent down.

The decision to carry 13 forwards is cap driven. The personnel decision is not.
