And the 10% doesn't really mean anything at this point as that's only for the next two weeks anyway. Obviously that extra amount we need will be gained by getting rid of Powe/Asham/maybe Pyatt.
Yes, but they wouldn't be hitting the cap if they shed the salaries of players that won't be on the team, and the 10% matters because essentially Stepan can sign immediately and within the next two weeks those players are moved.
They can sign him, shed those salaries and have 1-2m in cap, any moves they make mid season will probably involve a contract being moved as well so that is a moot point.
