Yeah, it's under the cap. 2M actually.
This is my second season starting. Won the cup in the first season after struggling in the regular season (was last after ~50 games). Penguins was the other team in the finals. Osgood won the Conn Smythe. Kovalchuk won the Richard trophy. And much much more. And this was when simulating each game.
Now that roster looks so delicious that I may wan't to play some games myself. Just imagine having PP unit which looks like: Kovalchuk-Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Lidstrom-Weber.
Also, the future is looking very bright as this team is not that old and there won't be any cap issues either (sadly it's only possible in video games). McCollum is 78 overall and I hope he can be the number one next season if he develops well. Abdelkader-Helm-Eaves looks like the second coming of the Grind Line.
Ryan and Weber I traded this year. Ryan for Cleary + Emmerton (who is a great prospect but there won't be any room for that kinda player in the near future) + Pearce. Weber for Babchuk (who I got at the start of the first season as FA) + Stuart (who is overpaid) + Vasicek (who played the first season in GR with 2-way contract).
Lidstrom will probably retire after this season. Pyett is most likely the one coming up then.
Also, who is this Josh Godfrey guy? Was FA at the start of the first season (75 overall back then), is now 22 years old and has still B overall potential.
Over and out.
