7 million a year vs. 4.5-5.5 a year if signed now. HRM I WONDER WHAT WILL ALLOW FOR MORE PLAYERS IN THE FUTURE.
Gomez cap hit is still here this year.

If we buy out Kaberle next season his cap hit will still be here next year.

Its easy to play armchair GM at your computer and demand that a popular player be given a very high contract this year.

But in the real world, if you want to create a contending hockey team, you have to work the numbers.
