However Burke left this team's cap in fantastic shape after what he inherited. According to cap geek we are 19.5mil under the cap this off season and that is before we buy out Komi. 24mil is more than enough for him to get the job done even if he has to overpay a little bit for someone like Clarkson/Weiss/Horton. I just hope if he overpays its in a contract like Connolly's short term so we at least arent stuck with it for years.
What do you guys think about offering Horton a deal matching or close to matching Lucic's? It is a bit of an overpayment IMO but I think it would still be worth it. Of course this is assuming Boston can't afford to resign him after this year.
My B's likely won't be able to afford him unless he stays close to or under his current cap hit. I will tell you he's a very very frustrating person to have on your team. He does put up points but he's invisible a lot of the time and paying upwards of 6 million will have you pulling your hair out most of the time.
