We are already over next yrs floor. We currently sit about $49M without re-signing anyone and the floor is $44M. Even if we re-sign just the RFAs and then even if we buyout Upshall and Clemmensen, we'll be over the floor without signing another center or Weiss.
it sounded to me like allowing Bjugstad to play in the NHL this year and use up one of his ELC years was a condition for him signing.
