A couple of things need to be kept in mind...
- Potential of cap shrinking
- Quick's upcoming salary cap hit (TBD, but will be a hefty raise)
Well, uh. It will tell them that if they sign a two year deal with a team, it might be over after two years? Don't really understand how that is a bad message. Quick's new cap hit would not take place next season, obviously. If you let Scuderi and Gagne go to free agency at the end of the year, you can sign him easily to anything around $6 million.
