Secondly, you're severely underestimating how valuable an extra $2.5M yearly would be in signing some good players that will be RFA's soon.
2.5M isnt that high a number that it would cause such a concern. We are not at the cap ceiling right now and Sather has been extremely good when it comes to managing it while keeping our young players and still adding a couple big contracts. Sather has also been extremely good not signing huge contracts to RFAs and the kids im sure have to expect not to get huge pay days yet.

Prust a perfect example. We saved a good 1M to not resign him and brought in players for cheap who can do what he did.

Worst comes to worse and we get too close to the cap, sather will likely work his magic again via trades to lose shed some salary.

I just dont think its as big of a deal as some and think it would be very manageable. Just my two cents.
