Capgeek says we are at $63 million right now.Now way we can resign Kessel,get a number one center and have Luongo.Thus there are no bidders for Luongo.It was a pipedream all along.
$17,259,167 Cap space next year with the option of buying out Komi.
Need to resign Franson, Gunnarson and one of Kostka/Holzer to have 7 NHL D (ignoring Percy,Rielly and Blacker will all be knocking at the door) Call that 5 Mil ? (probably high) Down to 12.25 Mil
Now you need 5 forwards to make 13. Kadri and Komarov are RFA's Call them 3.25 ?
Down to 9 Mill needing 3 . CMac ? (goodbye) Bozak ? Depends on the year . Keep Orr for a 800k .
Down to 8.2 Mil needing 2 forwards.
Flip Luongo for Riemer add 3.5 Mil
Down to 4.7 needing 2 forwards one of which has to play 1C unless Bozak returns cheap or Kadri is ready to step up.
Lup ? Kessel
JVR Grab Kule
Frattin Kadri Komarov
Orr McClem Brown
Holzer or Koska
Doable but tight. If a Getzlaf type can be signed for 6-7 you would have to buy out Komi and keep both Holzer and Kostka and use an entry level/cheap player as your spare forward.
I suspect though we will trade Liles to make room for Rielly. I also don't think Getzlaf will hit the open market. What other Centers are out there ?
Ibviously I could be off on some of the players costs but I don't think I am way off.
