When a guy like Gonchar comes off of the books the cap drops dramatically, much like the day Lids hangs them up that is 7 mil in cap space right there.


Gonchar had a cap hit of 5 million, the pens then signed Martin for a cap hit of 5 million plus Michalek so that is a little weird when you would think they would be looking for a winger right now. Especially since I don't think Martin or Michalek provide anywhere near the offense that Gonchar did.

Shelley at $1.1M, we can expect Asham at $1.5M...

Penguins have a little over 2 million in cap space left, the least amount of any team not named the Flyers.

Prust > Winchester/Nystrom

Going to have to say fail on this one. Prust has zip hockey sense and has no place on the Wings. The other 2 have stick skill that fit here and the grit we are looking for.

Very true, their offense needs a winger badly, but not a Pens fan so I am meh on their day, still have two of the top 10 players in the game up front.

As we knew.. it was just simple mathematics and more or less them stalling the inevitable by stating they didn't really need to move anyone else.

Silly Hawks, Cups are for Wings.:hehe:

Capgeek says they have $2.25 million to sign three players, even using Ben Lovejoy's $525,000/year contract as the sixth defenceman. They only have room left to get wingers in the Max Talbot mold.

Winchester has no skill as far as we are talking about, fighting, skating, scoring... very limited

Losing Gonchar opened up some extra cap space and created a big hole on their back end.


You're right. Penguins have $2,258,333 cap left with 20 spots filled. So $752,778 $/spot. They did a good job.


4.093 to spend and minimum of 8 players to sign.
511,000 per player.


I'm seeing $4,093,663 cap left with 13 spots filled. For $409,366 $/spot. I cannot fathom how screwed they really are....what am I missing?

Yeah, that's gotta be it.

That, or he didn't feel like ridiculously overpaying for players that aren't that important. Boogaard for $1.625 per, Armstrong for $3....ridiculous. Kenny *shouldn't* have any part of this.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Prust = Drake

Drake does not = Cup as everyone thinks on here.

Loved how he played but that is your opinion and you would for sure be the first I have ever heard compare him to Drake. More or less Asham or even Konopka would be much more useful than Prust.

My numbers were based off of needing a 21 man roster, that is probably why my numbers are askew!
