Even with cap recapture, that's is significant extra room to spent.
I posted about this in another thread.
Expectations need to be tempered, not everybody can walk around at 200+ pounds.
Brian Sutherby was on Gregors show the day he was introduced at OilersNation, and he talked about how it was near impossible for him to get to 210# at 6'3" every offseason and by midseason he would be back down below 200#.

Some guys just don't have the genetics to pack on that kind of weight and never will.
