Antropov and Hainsey on the books. Plus we'd still have a legal roster without having to sign anyone extra. We would have 13 forwards, 7 defensemen, and 2 goalies on the books.
Also, the roster does not need to be 23. That's just the maximum limit.
1. Yes you don't have to have 23 players but the Jets did all year.
2. We have to sign someone extra because we only have 6 D right now listed on the
cap. If you add Meech and Redmond another 1.5 million.
3. If Scheifele takes Cormier's place add another 750,000
4. Burmi will be do a raise as well.
We might not go over the cap depending what it is and you have to remember that
they are looking to make the contracts count fully each year not defering over
the life of the contract.
If you add the new Wheeler, Little and Bogo numbers with extra for Enstrom and Kane
you add $14 million to the 50.9 we have already plus add two more D and you sit
around 66-68 million depending on the Hainsey and Antro and Burmi contracts.
True North said we would not be a top of the cap team, more bottom third.
So I doubt this is doable.
