Frankly, leaving zero breathing room for anything is never very smart IMO. The chances of the outgoing salaries matching up exactly to the incoming salaries at the deadline is fairly slim.
Well our owners are comfortable spending, so why should we care about saving them a few bucks. It would be different if we had long term contracts that we don't need.

Deals at the deadline ate always easy to fit in, almost every contending cap team ends up adding someone with decent salary with no real issues. With prorated cap hits, salary retention, and the players going out.

Only actual concern would be bonuses, but with Schwartz coming off his ELC, it should only be Tarasenko getting bonuses, correct?
