There is also the small possibility of an amnesty buyout which would save the Sharks 2.5 mil. If we dump Clowe for picks and save that 3.625 mil, sign Suter for 7.5 mil, and trade Boyle for a Clowe replacement, that is a net increase of 700k. The bottom six will all be cheap with the exception being Winnik if he is retained. Galiardi, Desjardins, Sheppard, and Wingels will all cost about 750k at most. Moore would be about 1.5 mil at the most. Winnik 2.5 mil. A 7th d-man is a mil at most.
there is no rollback, it would have to be negotiated and the PA might not like that at all. you defintitely can't count on it. sure if we dump our players of picks and resign cheap options then there's no cap problem but then our team is EVEN worse.

here is the bottom line. i want a cup contending team. right now we are a barely-make-the-playoff team. we barely made it last season and went 1-4 in the first round. we are up against the cap, really. if we get rid of our talent for worse options, then our cap situation looks better, our team looks worse. sure we could dump clowe, pavs, and put fairyoh and tj as our top 6 - does anyone see the problem with that?

our roster needs to be improved but the cap situation won't allow us. that is the bottom line. all the moves you guys are talking about are making us worse not better (rolling with griess instead of neimi, dumping clowe and putting tj as our 2nd line, etc).
