Putting D'agostini on LTIR is the only reason we could afford to sign Kobasew.
We currently have 310K in cap space. D'ags cannot come off LTIR without a subsequent move. Now simply sending Maatta back will clear the necessary space. However, D'ags has to miss at least 10 games and Maatta will be here for less time than that. Will we just role with a 22 man roster until his return, will we call Despres or a forward like Harry Z or Sill up for a few games and send him back again when D'agostini comes back, or will we be making a trade?
I noticed that as well. They really have to assess the roster these next 10 games and open up some cap flexibility.
Such a shame that some players are just eating up not only a roster spot but good chunks of the cap where the money could be better spent.
If the injuries pile up, the players mentioned in the above sentence really put a dent into rounding out a competitive lineup.
