Philly saves almost 2.8 mill in cap space.
Give 1.1 mill to Gus
Give 1.7 mill to Gagne
Demote Bourdon once cleared to play...needs playing time in AHL anyways
Allow Laughton to FEAST on OHL this year to build confidence...keep his ELC for an extra year...you know we will need it later too!
We should be cap compliant after this
Philly then has their 7 D-men + Gervais. Can use one in a trade later or more likely, to cover for injuries so Gervais doesn't play much at all.
That is what I would do.
A pretty sound move but it's just not as exciting as talking about Pietrangelo!
I'd be pretty happy if that was all that happened in the offseason tbh, it's just the long term shape of the D that carries concern.
