Looking at Capgeek, I see 291K of cap space.
Again, as Overloads wrote above, it's not because we don't have the cap space. It's because the Salary cap is not a flat number. It modulates throughout the season according to the number of players on the roster. If we keep him down in Hamilton when we don't need him, we don't pay him NHL money and we save some cap space that we will be able to spend later in the season (trade deadline for instance).
