What difference does it make? I really doubt they wouldn't consider the roster limits before they made this signing. It's not like they're going to try to sign Parise or Ryan Suter and then go "ah shoot, we don't have room for ya, I knew we shouldn't have signed Vernance!"

If he stays in the AHL, he doesn't affect our cap, and he doesn't make NHL salary.

Maybe no one lines up July 1 but someone with experience would land a 2-way contract somewhere else if we just offered him an AHL contract with the whale.
