Cap Blues

With the recent announcement of a new cap structure to the HFNHL, the St. Louis Blues find themselves up against the cap wall, so to speak. With a pro roster with at least 22 players non-waiver eligible, and with those players over the cap by close to $1M, the organization, while not desperate, is anxious to create some much needed breathing room. Even at 21 players, they are seemingly a hair over the cap, depending on who makes that final roster post-ratings.

As such, the following players are on the block, with the expectation of the exchange of less salary coming back the other way. The Blues could include cash in a deal, for those teams not anxious to take on too much extra salary.

David Bolland: the ultimate 3rd line / 2nd line two-way center, the Blues may not have the luxury of having an elite checking center any longer. At $3.375M per year, he is hardly breaking the bank, but with a solid two-way center in Lars Eller pushing Bolland at $2M less per year, trading him has become a plausible option. Going forwared in Toronto, Bolland is likely to see an increase in quality minutes versus with a deeper Hawks team. Management denies Bolland has been put on the block simply because rooting for him would mean rooting for a Leaf.

Erik Cole: While Cole had an off year in the shortened season with only 9 goals in 47 games, the reality is he scored over 60 goals in the previous two seasons and will still have a terrific SC rating given the weighted average, not to mention solid other ratings. He is the perfect short-term SC winger who can play either side of center. 1 year left on his deal at $3 million.

Michael Frolik: Another elite checker who now has been traded to a team where he will once again be given PP time, unlike in Chicago. Signed for 3 more years at $1.9M, the Blues are not anxious to part with him but recognize a cheaper replacement will create some space.

Daniel Alfredsson: The wild card in trade discussions. While most observers would never have dreamed of Alfie ever not retiring a Blue, there are rumblings there may have been a sudden change of heart from both camps on his stay with the team. The Blues would be forced to pay the $5.8M penalty pre-deadline, but there are rumours they are prepared to do so in the right deal.
Also open to any other creative ideas teams might have.

Pending trade approval by the league, the Blues have made a trade which will provide the team with cap relief. Rumoured to be part of the deal is center David Bolland.

Details to follow.

A bump here, as this trade was rejected by the powers that be, and watching Bolland last night in a Leafs jersey just reminded me why I never hang on to Leafs very long. So Blue and White lovers, get your offers in.

Plus, Alfie is still available if anyone will take the Judas.
