It is not a disastrous cap situation, as had been discussed beyond comprehension in the trade rumor thread. They don't have accountants re-checking Dean's books in context of the NHL, they have accountants checking the money they are paying versus their own operations and endeavors. Dean and Solomon are the chief AEG employees that are entrusted with governing AEG's money from a hockey perspective. Dean has already publicly said, during his Edmonton interview, that the cap is a non-issue, that it is easily maneuvered around if the right player is available. The bottom line is whether or not such a deal is both affordable (via assets) and wise for the franchise, not whether it is financially feasible. We have the finances and the space to add such a forward. That's why Dean was offering such a contract to Brad Richards over the summer.
