No we wouldn't, it's manageable. Not ideal but you could definitely do it. You just need enough guys on ELC's to balance it out which we can do. Roy and Stafford is 8 million, if the extra guy to replace the 2 for 1 is someone on an ELC or a Matt Ellis type for 550k you're not even adding 1 million in salary. Bottom line is we can fit Staal in under the cap without trading Vanek.
