As I've mentioned the last couple times you've said this, the Sens only have 48 contracts under the limit. Noesen and Puempel's deals don't count unless they play 10 NHL games because of the ELC slide rule. They are both almost assuredly going back to Junior so they won't count. In fact, Zibanejad also falls under this category but I think you should include him in the count because he has a half decent chance of playing 10 NHL games this year.

Once the Sens sign DaCosta, then they'll be at 49 contracts so they won't have to make any additional moves if they don't want to.
