According to Cap Geek current cap space is now $10,572,095 using a Salary Cap of 70,200,000 and this is without Poti being put back on LTIR.

It really is. He was terrific with both Green and Carlson when paired with them in the playoffs. Would have loved to see a defense like this:

Alzner - Green
Poti - Carlson
Hamrlik - Orlov
Schultz/Erskine

You're a little low for Carlson IMO, but yeah. Lots of room to make a deal.

Hannan is terrible now, by the way. He was quite possibly the worst defenceman on the Flames last season.

Problem is--pretty much every team has cap space, and there's not much left on the FA market.

I'm guessing we'll see a holding pattern on trades until the CBA is resolved.

For what it's worth, Fehr is saying to anyone who will listen that he has no interest whatsoever in rollbacks, and expects the league to honor all contracts currently on the books, to the penny.

Just because Goodenow gave up a rollback last time doesn't mean Fehr is necessarily going to do the same.

I still think a depth defense signing is redundant. If we're going to make a move on defense, acquire a player with impact potential who can be a long term LD solution via trade. We have plenty of stopgap options already under contract.

The guy's one of the most durable d-men out there. Granted there's no glitter to his game but that's not what the Caps are looking for. A dependable, positionally sound d-man that could be paired with either Green or Orlov (might be a good mentor to Orlov).

For the love of God just get rid of JFS.

What assets do we have to make such a transaction?

Laich, MAJO, Schultz, Ward.

What is going to give on D... we aren't going to roll 8D IMO. Do those that know Hillien's game think he will make it through waivers should George try to stash him in Hershey? George has shown a tendency to not risk it, and I am now starting to fear that Orlov will be spending time in Hershey. We will hear its a numbers game blah blah needs top minutes blah.

A shoe has to drop, or someone is getting sent to Hershey. And I expect him to not risk losing anyone. He covets his dmen.

Something has to involve Erskine and/or Schultz. Do we have a Poti situation going on with Erskine and his shoulder perhaps and they are envisioning he joining Poti on LTIR?

I'm starting to think Hillen is insurance, either for them moving Schultz (if they're even trying) or for Orlov not being ready at the start of the season.

Not that either are likely, but given the lack of alternatives it would make some sense in that context.

If Orlov doesnt make the team out of camp I would rather have him in Hershey getting playing time then have a season in the press box like GMGM did to Eminger before trading him.

Why would Orlov not be ready to start the season? Was there an injury or something not reported?

Why do we always need to get our 6mill #1 Dman a partner? He should be pickup someone else up not needing a player to cover him.

No, I just meant if they wanted him to start in Hershey, should have worded it better. Just talking about sophomore slump and everything. Unlikely, but if he struggles they need NHL depth to replace him.

Johansson starting last season penciled in for 2C and Orlov starting this season in Hershey...

Not that I think it's a real possibility, but that would be absolutely insane.

i think the suggestion that erskine is not ready to play might be what makes the most sense. either they are thinking hillen to hershey as an injury call up or erskine is still broken. either is possible.

poile didnt think enough of him to qualify him. that says nobody else was willing to trade a minimul asset to get him before he was released. my take is that he's on an nhl one way deal as a well paid backup and headed to hershey.

but i would not rule out that erskine is chronic.

Tough situation. I'm ok w/ it. If he can play, it's a reasonable contract. If he can't, it'll be another Nylander situation. Hopefully the new CBA will address this kind of thing so you don't get stuck with guys who can't play.

Good luck, #52!

6M!? Are you telling me a player's worth isn't entirely dependent on his last 1-2 seasons?
