The NHL has vowed to close that loophole, and warned teams that the transition rules would be harsh, but 14 teams have at least one of them.
I worry if the transition rule change might be counting the actual dollars rather than the average. We might get ourselves into trouble with the big 4's second contracts if we're paying Weber 12M on what would currently be a 7.5M cap hit deal. Of course the cap does keep going up, and with more Canadian franchises rumoured it could go higher. Plus we'll still be losing contracts. Ok screw my previous reservations, this is a big, young, physical, number 1 D.

So long as none of the big 4(not worth it) or Schultz(optics) or Klefbom(too intriguing) are included, I would be ok if we chased him.

Edit: I am thinking something like

Hemsky + Smid/Petry + Paajarvi/Hartikainen + 1st in 2013(lottery protection changes it to 2014) + 2nd 2013
