I'm not saying this is ok or anything, I just want to know how other teams operate. So basically are the majority teams at 49-50 or are most lower, and how much lower?
All teams fall in between 45-49 now that we've rid ourselves of a contract (for the second time this season). Pens have 46, btw. Those still in junior slide, and aren't counted towards the 50-limit.

On Laakso, I would have preferred him over Walker due to the risk of being stuck with dead cap space, but if I have understood how these things work, Homer couldn't know that Laakso would be on waivers until after he'd made the recall for Walker. Plus, there is of course a chance that Laakso is snagged by some other team below us in the standings and I'm sure Homer (and Lavy) really want a 7th d for this road trip, especially now that we have both Bourdon and Marshall playing.
