not really. With a 23 man roster including 8 dmen (including Salo) and 13 forwards, including Torres and Oreskovich, but no Hodgson or Hordichuck, we have $291k left over.

you can ditch SOB and put his $1.6m towards Mitchell OR a fourth line centre OR Hodgson but that's it. you can bring Mitchell in and deal with the cap when Salo comes off LTIR, but it's still going to cost you players down the road (unless someone else ends up on LTIR, or Salo doesn't come back).

bottom line, moving Bieksa gets us to the cap, it doesn't give us extra dough to blow. from here on out, basically any additions will require moving cap space to accommodate. and that includes Mitchell and Hodgson (other than LTIR). no chance we can add both AND another centre.

right now, I like Torres-Malhotra-Hansen as our third line, with Hodgson/Schroeder fighting it out to fill LTIR space out of camp and playing in the top 6 (if Burrows is out, but I haven't seen anything official to suggest he will be).

I'd take B-Mo for under 1Mil, as the 4th line centre. I was dead set against bringing him in here, as I really think he's done. But as a 4th line centre making minimum NHL dollars, I'd bring him back for the BC factor, and because he always seemed to be able to score some clutch goals.

At no point should he see time away from the 4th line though, unless there are some injuries.

I had a feeling DinoD would be right and I was the first to believe him

Solid signing and it pretty much sets up our top 10 nicely up front:

This poll really should now be updated since Torres has been added to the mix.

I still think Hansen may start the year on the third line Torres Malhortra Hansen seems like a likely line to me. Would people rather see Hodgson in Manitoba then the forth line with some second powerplay time? I would probably prefer he go to Manitoba then receive the forth line role, or be given the third line centre role. Is Hodgson a better centre than Malhortra or a better winger than Hansen if not he should be in Manitoba. No rookie player deserves anything given to them. This is not like 3 years ago when Mason Raymond was given a top line position with the Sedins out of camp. Eventhough he did not produce in limited time in Manitoba. If Hodgson is a winger do people honestly expect him to be a better winger than Tambellini. Richards scored well in the AHL then still struggled for a couple years in the NHL. Unless he shows very well in the preseason he should go to Manitoba.
