Also: we're currently icing the 3rd cheapest team in the NHL, spending more than only the lowly Islanders and Coyotes. And we're under the cap (though who knows where th cap will be once a deal is reached). An extra $3 mil is nothing, especially considering Cowen's deal is insured, so in real dollars it's only like an extra $2 mil on the books for Robidas, not $3.
And if Euge was willing to have spent more, an top 4 UFA defenseman would have been signed (instead of trading for Methot) while also keeping Foligno.
The cap floor issue is a non issue. Melnyk's goal is to spend the least amount possible.
