The cap floor makes it a little more difficult to ice an AHL caliber team. Assuming they are going the Edmonton Oilers route where they are trying to develop young guys and still be bad enough to add some impact draft picks... I think that's the main goal of the rebuilding and blowing the team up. And assuming they get Johnson and Bernier and whoever they get for Carter along with a few vets like Prospal and Tyutin they might even be going the LA Kings route that's how we started right?
