I think by now they know they cannot keep him. I think teams would rather pay Stamkos 8M than B.Richards.

They need 1 more goalie, and 3 more players (Stamkos/Purcell/Other) to have the minimum required to play. 18.8million left til salary cap.

How do you know that big Leaf news is actually imminent? I know that Eklund might be crowing up a storm, but what else is new? My money says that Stamkos will remain with the Lightning even if the Leafs were willing to give an offer sheet and that Richards will sign with the Rangers. I am a born pessimist though...

Thats it? So why do people not think they have enough cap space? 4 players with 18.8 left is pretty good. or is it more they don't actually have much money?

Cap isnt the issue to sign stamkos.. they have more than enough cap space to sign him long term. its whether or not the owners want to lose more money than they already are

It might have to do more with the financial restrains than the cap itself. They can actually sign Brad Richards AND Stamkos if they have the budget to spend to the cap.

Comparing to us, we have 18.7k capspace, while Tampa has 18.8k; however, we have 1 more player signed.

They need 4 players to get to 18... but they more likely need 9 to get to the full 23 man roster.

The fact that Stamkos is 1/2 of that is what makes things so tight.

Lets say stamkos gets 9.4.

You've then got 9.4 left to sign 8 players. Thats an average of about 1.2 million / player.

VERY tight for Tbay. They can easily sign Stamkos still, its just a matter of if and when that happens, something's gotta give.

Not to mention if they're spending to the cap, they're looking at at least 30 million dollars in losses next year. Not a very healthy business model if yo uask me.

you really think a team that loses 20-25M annually wants to spend right at the threshold? those loses could double!
