Gaby only has 1 year remaining after 12-13. Arbitration will be the same so McDonagh and Hagelin are arb eligible. Stepan isn't. Sauer isn't an issue because of his health. Keeping the cap at $64.3M would have been better but its time to drop the puck. The cap wasn't going up so going into the CBA you knew it remain at $64.3M or decrease slightly. Drop the puck.
You are correct Sir
But if the cap were to remain at $64,3M - then we could still keep the 3 headed dragon and also resign our key RFAs incl MDZ this year - with a wee bit of tweaking. We will in the end see where the cap winds up for next year - if this deal ever gets done. A lot of teams will certainly be in cap hell if it goes down over $10M until next season - that is for certain... And that will create some unexpected opportunities - I would believe, no?
