Capgeek.com is your friend. Look here:
That was covered ad infinitum over the offseason when everyone wanted to ditch Spacek for a bag of pucks or bury him in the minors. 35+ contract. Can't do it.
So aside from that major flaw, are you honestly telling me this is what you would have brought to the opening day roster:
Total cap hit = $68,170,509
You would be almost $4 million over the cap. As I said, you're not signing Cole if you load up on overpaid defensemen. You're also not getting Emelin over here knowing there's absolutely no room for him. You also lose Weber on waivers since you've got way too many D on the roster.
So, even with perfect hindsight, your plan is a mess. What happens if Markov is ready opening night or late October or early November? You need to lose $4 million in salary instantly, without taking any back. Good luck.
