We are not even close to the worst off in cap dollars. Things will adjust accordingly, and we have more breathing room than most (and one of the most infuriatingly patient GMs in all of pro sports)
We are a team that's actually going to benefit from the cap coming down, believe it or not.
Consider that Carter, Bernier and now Butler were all picked off of waivers prior to this season. And that's without 2/3 of the league already busting through the proposed ceiling.
Yeah we keep talking about this, and I hope so. I'm more worried about Zajac, and Clarkson. And then Patty with that ass Walsh who represents him. Do we have to pay him more than we did last contract? And when they go to UFA what kind of offers they will get.
If it makes Zajac worth $4.5-$5 million, and Clarkson only worth $3.5 I guess I'm fine with it. I still think they'll settle at $63-$65 million.
