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.
well we can agree to disagree then.
If Nash is acquired and Quick gets his raise, in 2013 LA will have 10 players under contract for just under $50 million. That leaves about $15 million to spend for the remaining 13 roster spots. How do you build a competitive team like that?
