So really straight off the bat, after calculating Cole contract in our cap. We had 8M$ or so.

Don't tell me that with 8M$ in free space yo ucan't find a mean to accomodate Hamrlik and Wisniewski's contract in your cap...

We also managed to trade Spacek away... maybe we would of gotten something else then Kaberle if we needed more salary space. (without adding that Kaberle earns more then Spacek and for 2 more years).

Did the Blue Jackets recieve a trade that was worth their while for Wisnieski? Was he reallyo n the market to begin with? Sooo given your logic... No one wanted the gross contract of Rick Nash right?

So in the end we really coud of signed Markov, Cole, Hamrlik and Wisnieski without much, if any issues...
Maybe I'm not understanding. How did you predict that Markov's salary would be off the books the whole year? How did you predict Spacek being traded? There's no way we could have signed Wisniewski before the season You only get cap relief as the season goes on
