Now that they've bought out Gomez, is the Cap really an issue for them. If I read Capgeek correctly, this year, they have $6M in cap space and that's counting the $6.5M hit from Gomez which is gone for next season. Next year, if the cap goes to $64M, they have $11M in space with only a few lower end guys to still sign.
