If Tanev takes .15 less than your projection, leaving him at 1.3m, then that leaves 2.5m to sign a 6th and 7th Dman. 1m each. That's seems realistic with a dropping cap. Teams are going to cheap out on some positions and it may very well come down to spending 1m~ on the 6th Dman here. Nothing wrong with that.


Higgins and Raymond at 5.5m total seems like good compensation.
