In the AHL next year:
9 in the AHL meaning missing 14 guys
So we need 14 in the AHL (9 active players), 11 in the NHL (12 active players). I don't know how Butch's contract works since he's out for a total of 25 players we need for next year.
We are bringing in 4 guys that have contracts (Brodin, Larsson, Phillips, Bulmer). So we now need 21 players in the NHL and AHL to play and all of those contracts need to come from somewhere.
We know Coyle, Zucker, and Granlund will need to be signed. So that's now 31 contracts signed with us needing 18 players in the AHL/NHL.
Not all of them are going to be NHL contracts. So I'll wiggle around 5-7 contracts depending on how comfortable Fletcher feels with the AHL.
We need a goaltender. So that's 17 players in the NHL/AHL with 32 contracts signed.
We need 11 players in the NHL. We have let's say a maximum of 4 rookies signed and in the NHL. Meaning we still need 7 players in the NHL. 39 contracts signed.
We want to bring in 5-6 guys in the AHL to help teach our young players and we have the 3 rookies. So that's 44-45 contracts signed.
