NHL owned Phoenix has an interesting situation
Right now they have a 22 man roster with the following look:
Steve*Sullivan ($2.600m) / Antoine*Vermette ($3.750m) / Radim*Vrbata ($3.000m)
Lauri*Korpikoski ($1.800m) / Martin*Hanzal ($3.100m) / David*Moss ($2.100m)
Raffi*Torres ($1.750m) / Boyd*Gordon ($1.325m) / Nick*Johnson ($0.725m)
Mikkel*Boedker ($1.100m) / Kyle*Chipchura ($0.675m) / Paul*Bissonnette ($0.738m)
Keith*Yandle ($5.250m) / Zbynek*Michalek ($4.000m)
Rostislav*Klesla ($2.975m) / Derek*Morris ($2.750m)
Oliver*E.-Larsson ($1.750m) / Michael*Stone ($0.846m)
Chris*Summers ($0.803m) / David*Schlemko ($0.550m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $70,200,000
CAP PAYROLL: $44,836,583
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $25,363,417
Say they miss out on the Doan signing?
They then have to spend Over $9,2m - just to reach the cap floor!
With the current reamaining crop of UFAs I do not see it as remotely possible.
Maybe Bettman conveniantly lowers the cap floor in thenew CBA?
Otherwise - What are they going to do?
Trade for Redden, Tim Thomas and Scott Gomez?
Will be interesting to follow...
