Teams are routinely over the cap during the summer. There is a grace period by which they must shed salary in order to meet cap limits.

As for not trading a 1st, if we were to get someone like Ryan then we would expect it to be a late 1st (20+).
Not necessarily. I'd take the under on that. We have a nice core to build with -- just don't think we have the right mix at the moment and years of throwing away draft picks has narrowed the quality of players we could have been drawing from in Hamilton.
