That's before we signed Kovalev.

"I don't care where (Heatley) plays. He can play anywhere he wants as long as I can get the right deal. All I care about is what comes back to our club."
Maybe they would trade Heatley in the division?

Trade Plekanec + for Heatley. Then waive Hammer.

Volchenkov at 3.2M or so is an UFA after this season, maybe they would take O'Byrne at about 1.3M and save 2M?

The Sens plan to shed salary cap room is to waive Smith and Schubert and pay them $ 3.4 mil total to play in the AHL. Smith might retire (injury), and might be sent to Edmonton in the Heatley deal now that the Sens paid $4 mil (I doubt this).

So that's $3.4 mil that is easily disposed of. In Murray's interview, he said that Melnyk really wanted Kovalev (gotta have some more flash, they were interested in Havlat too, not at 6 years). So the owner said we'll worry about the cap later meaning he's willing to pay the big bucks to AHLers.

If the deal with Edmonton goes through, there's another $1.5 savings (factoring in Smid's new deal RFA).

So instead of being $2 mil over the cap, they will be about $2.9 under the cap once this is done.

If Heatley somehow stays with the Sens, they will be only $1.4 mil under the cap.

So no more moves (unless Heatley is traded soon), but they have a full lineup anyways.

*note: I'm not 100 % sure of the numbers, different sites have it differently. There could be a $1 million variation either way. But they're still under the cap either way with S & S in the AHL.
