That's more then what was expected, right?

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing. The goalie then gives up, and flops like a fish. The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

If I remember correctly they were thinking it would go up to 58 million at the most. I could be wrong though.

This suddenly makes a guy like Nystrom a bit more of a possibility.

Good news for the Wings.

Hopefully we can fill the bottom of the roster with good, gritty, young players now.

This will help in signing a 6th defenseman as well.

Damn, this is good. We are one of the teams that will benefit most from this. Now we can afford a FA that will actually be able to make an impact on the team. Im feeling pretty good about next season, anyone else?

July 1st definitely got more exciting now. The cap is almost at 60 million and they were thinking 58 at the most.

No reason to not sign someone tough now and still have cap room :thumbup:

I havent really been keeping track, but when we get our RFA's signed up and everything sorted out what will our roster look like and how much cap space will we have to throw at someone?

Great news if you're a Red Wings fan....heart-breaking for the lone Thrashers fan!

This will help in signing a 6th defenseman as well.

:siren: Hopefully they'll be able to re-sign Lilja for around a cool million.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

We have about 5.5 million in cap space now I believe. I doubt we'll tie up more then 3 million in our RFA's. So probably about 2 million for another roster player assumign we sign all our RFA's. If Miller is gone we'll have a bit more.

Agreed, but bodies have to move. I don't think the Red Wings will wanna carry 14 forwards, but who knows. Either way, this kind of room gives Kenny some more options now. Good deal.

The highest number I heard being kicked around was $58.8 million. This is great news!

SWEET! Lots of good hockey news today! Spend it wisely Kenny.
