First - this is not going to happen as it seems we are not in on the bidding on Suter anyways.
Second regarding the cap - We would have some remaining space even if the cap stays at 64,3 M this year.
We would have $63.853.334 committed in salaries and $2.600.000 in eventual deferrable bonuses. In addition - $8,750,000 would be on IR until December (at least) - putting us far under the cap roof even with last years numbers. Next year would probably see some roster changes, but we could probably sign all of our RFAs then with a tweek or two.
Third - you are right. Suter is not worth double the amount of Staals salary. Not remotely. But he is in theory the only UFA available that could fill the loss of Staal imo as an upgrade.
