Colin Fraser IS Cheap NOW ... but is also a UFA and I expect him to be looking for a nice raise, don't you ? If he asks for anything more than say $1.5 mil per year, I say Lewis can handle Fraser's role without missing a beat at half that salary, was the point I was making.
And as far as working it all into the Salary Cap ... next years CAP = $70.3-million ?, with a really ambitious GM could spend $77.3-million or so before having to get under the eventual cap on the final day of training camp, though no one KNOWS yet what it might actually be once a new CBA is in place, however ...
Playing with CapGeek I come up with this =
= Gives me that 25 man team I listed @ $69,649,602
... so it CAN work, Penner & Stoll both sign for less than they make now, leaves about $7.5 mil cap to get Parise
in the end some guys may have to be cut, waived, traded ... like Richardson, Drewiske and ? We will see, I'm obviously not TOO worried about it, as Dean I'm sure has HIS numbers in place and will make something work one way or another.
