So who is going to be the first poster (say a few minutes after the trade deadline) to seriously wonder if Sloan would be a better pickup by McPhee than player "x" was?

On the other side of the TFS coin, why did we buy him out instead of simply burying him in Hershey? We now have $233K less cap space for this season and next.

That's the discount Brooks told them he was giving the team when he signed his deal so it was essentially free money.

Jussi Jokinen re-signs with Carolina at 3M for each of 3 years. Another discount for the Canes...

I'm working on less sleep than normal and can't figure out what the stuff in parentheses in the thread title is supposed to mean.

I would guess to free up an official roster spot and to make sure ice time in Hershey gets used by players they want.

I wouldn't have guessed that in a million years. I'm not even sure what a crushing meltdown is, but I'm interested to find out.

Why the slashes though?

1.) Extra contract to play with under the 50 contract limit
2.) Extra cap space on the summer cap (not that I think this is a compelling reason, but I guess you never know)
3.) Less actual money spend (again, this shouldn't matter given the amounts involved but hey, who knows)
4.) May not want to force Sloan to play in the AHL, give him a chance to find a better deal elsewhere (I doubt he gets it but maybe they want to give him the chance)
5.) May not want to force Sloan to play in the AHL and subject the guys down there to a player that may not take a demotion well (don't know if Sloan is that type of guy, I know he wasn't happy about his icetime up here but I don't know how he'd react in Hershey)
6.) May not want to force Sloan to play in the AHL and take up a roster spot and icetime from whatever Dmen they have down there at the time (McNeill, Orlov, Miskovich, Flemming? etc.)

There are plenty of reasons that they might have decided to buy him out. I don't know if any of them are all that compelling other than the 50 contract limit (and that's only if they plan on adding), but with the hit this low they may not have needed a particularly strong reason.

Yeah, I don't get the TFS buy-out, unless they believe they'll need the available contract. That's much more of a waste of cap space than Laich's deal.

And Kipper still sucks.

I'm sure it was mentioned in the last thread, but how close to the 50 contract limit is the team?

The answer you seek can be found here.

If you don't feel like clicking the link yourself, 34.

Tomorrow will be interesting to see what everyone else in the league does.

Really want to see Philly drop an offer sheet on Stammer Hammer.

I want to see Stamkos get a max contract. Please tie up as much of TB's cap as possible

33 according to that link. Add the 5 qualified RFAs and it's 38 (I'm betting if Varly bolts, another organizational goalie is signed). You'd assume they'll want to keep a 2-3 contract cushion for possible camp signings and the same for deadline/mid-season deals, so that's 4-6 more. So we're up to 42-44 contracts.

So it would make sense that we likely see 6-8 players brought into the organization this summer. We can expect at least half of those to be of the Fahey/Willsie ilk--Hershey guys that would be strictly injury fill-ins for the Caps.
