That is awesome. Not only do the Flyers not get strapped with that cap hit from J-bo, the Blues do. With all their RFAs this coming summer, I think they won't be able to resign them all. I think the chances of getting Shatty or Pietrangelo just went up a little bit.
Even with JBo they have 27 million to spend next year. Even with the RFAs they should be fine
The Blue are a notorious budget team. They never spend to the cap. They have Berglund, Stewart, Piety( I love him), and Shattenkirk to resign. Piety and Shatty should cost around 11-13 between the two. They only spend to about 50 million per year.
Calgary got hosed pretty hard there, but now Blues have a plethora of defenseman. Time to call them up for Shattenkirk.
I'm not a JayBo fan but I think he's worth a little more than what the Flames just got for him. I think they could have at least gotten the 1st rounder guaranteed for this year for JayBo. Feaster's just continuing to prove how bad of a GM he really is.
