I would rather have Zharkov getting more than 10 minutes in the A and on a scoring line.
I think Zharkov has enough experience in the AHL and I don't really mind if he's playing 4th line minutes.

I see during the PK we play our 4th liners and Zharkov would be a great PK guy.

I think what he's trying to say is they're trying to build a cushion? If so, that's a pretty weak argument. You dont get out from cap hell by nickel and diming the system. You have to make a move eventually.

Speaking of which...Why did we have Urbom and Fraser out there together late in the 3rd period?

That looked like a recipe for distaster. I'm glad they held their own.

his daily is $5.062M (or something like that)/186. if you have a transaction where two (or more) players are bound to each other, it's just easier to use the yearly salaries.

even if someone gets send down and another player gets called up, the total of the 3guys will not be more than the total of the three guys that are there now.

you can't build a cushion. they have no cap space until Rolston comes off LTIR.

let me try again. I really don't understand why this is so hard.

1) they have $7.9M (ignore Fraser, it shouldn't be used) in LTIR done yearly.

2) Sal makes $2.9M. Rolston makes $5.0M+.

3) to activate Sal, you need to leave $2.9M in Rolston's LTIR open.

4) you can use $2.15M in Rolston's space.

5) Devils call up three players that make $2.05M or thereabouts. they are under. if there are changes, the total amount won't add up to more than that.

6) You activate Salvador. now, $4.95M of Rolston's $5.0M+ is being used.

7) You dispose of Salvador at some point. (probably the day before Rolston is activated) Now, you are under the cap by $2.9M pro-rated, but Rolston's $5.0M+ of LTIR renders you with no cap space because his LTIR is greater than your cap space.

8) $5.0M+ (LTIR) - $2.9M (cap space) = $2.15M or so. this the number you need to dispose of to activate Rolston.

9) You make a trade or a waiver or a combination trade/waiver, of that amount or more, to free Rolston. Your new cap space is X - $2.15M, pro-rated, obviously.

now you should have a 22-23 man roster and be accumulating banked cap space.

you have to think of this as being like an NBA team that is over their soft cap. everything you do has to be slotted and have a purpose. you are over the cap, but you are allowed to be. to get back under, you have to make a series of slotted moves.

The less money we spend now, the more we will have saved up to use when rolston comes up, which we can use to call up players later in the season on a game by game basis (zharkov, teddy, mills, eckford, etc...)

Good callups. I expected Zharkov instead of Sestito, but I have no problem with Sestito being the one to get the call.

I wanted to see him get 11 or 20, but both of those are occupied now. 16 isn't a bad number for him.

We really need Volchenkov back. I don't have a whole lot of confidence in that middle pairing.

I like Corrente's game. And he is relatively good about deciding when to play aggressively. I've said it before, we have too many boy scouts on this team, we need a real ****ing lunatic to spark things up every now and then.

Yeah I was wondering that too. My muscles tensed up when I saw they were both on at the same time. Luckily it wasn't the disaster we were both expecting.

Not true.

You can't "bank" cap space when you are using the LTIR exemption.

They certainly didn't look too comfortable together. I still think Urbom needs Tallinder to steady him, but with Volchenkov out, we need Tallinder on the top pairing. Now that Fraser is also out, let's see how MacLean rearranges the pairings. Will Urbom be paired with Corrente now?
