we have young cheap talent and are thinking long term.. and in terms of the cap.. yes its going down.. but Hockey revenues are up even with this lockout, they didn't skip a beat.. tv ratings are at its highest point ever.. after 13-14' season cap will go up considerably and moving forward.. until we're at the next dreaded lockout and things will change... but honestly we're set.. and if we're in dire need of cap... Richards will most likely be bought out anyway this summer if but def by 14' summer, which is almost 7m in cap savings.. we're fine.. moving forward..
IMO your right we need young talent.. thats why its imperative to keep your draft picks!!
thats why in terms of cap management.. Mcd will get staal treatment 5yr-4m cap bc if staal got bridge contract we'd be in trouble capwise bc he would easily be at 5m-6m AAV..
if slats was smart he would try to lock up Hags to an Okposo type deal and step to 4m/yr cap hit long term.. hank i think will get 6-7yrs 6m AAV but his last yrs will be lower $$..
we have the young talent.. i think these players want to be here long term and may keep it together bc theyre young playing in NY and on the biggest stage.. might take home town discount.. drafting is key though!!
