I assume we will be signing a tough guy too. Maybe not in the next couple days, but when prices go down. Carter by himself is not enough protection and toughness for the team. We might bring him back as the 23rd guy if we plan on carrying a full roster.
according to capgeek http://capgeek.com/charts.php?Team=16 we have 19.7 million in cap space and 3 million just to reach the floor (its 48 right?). I bet the Santo/Matthias/Gubs signings come out to like 8ish total, so we probably have like 11.7 million remaining in space if we spent to the cap. This would also give us:
13 forwards- Booth, Weiss, Versteeg, Flash, Upshall, Santo, Matthias, Goc, Skille, Dadonov, Repik, Timmins, and Kopecky. Realistically Repik and Timmins I believe can be send to the AHL still
7 D-men- Jovo, Campbell, Kulikov, Ellerby, Garrison, Weaver, and Gubs. Either this is our lineup or Ellerby gets traded and a Veteran gets picked up as the 7th d-man.
2 goalies- Theo and Clemmer.
I would love to see Gagne and Vokoun brought in with the 11 million remaining...trade clemmer for everything and run with this:
