I hate Abby on the first line, my point is that Alfie is declining, and his 5.5 million is way too much for what he brings.

So, bring up a player you don't think belongs on the first line as a replacement for Alfie on the first line?

 

Plus his cap hit is 3.5 and a potential for 2 more in bonuses, you cannot count those 2 in bonuses yet, as he has to earn them, and if he earns it what is the issue?

See this is what I want to confirm. 

 

Can anyone say whether we have the option to have the 2M bonus count for the coming season if we have the cap space (as opposed to letting it carry over to the year after)?

TSN reported 3.5 will count against this year and the remaining 2 would fall on next year. Still trying to figure the CBA rules.

Now what I am seeing from Dreger is 3m base and 2.5 in bonuses!

Not bad.

 

Honestly, I feel worse about the Senators fans/team losing him than I do with us getting him.

 

We'll see.

Yes, the $2m can be factored into next year's cap. However, it only counts if he actually earns it.

LeBrun said he's as good as gone.

Can you post a quote or source? I didn't see that.

Teams can elect to charge salary bonuses to the season in which they were earned if they are under the cap by at least the amount of the bonus.  If that would put them over the cap, the team must elect to take the cap hit the following season.

Love this signing. Replaces Cleary (hopefully) and is much much better.

Dallas and Detroit pursuing Cleary. Hopefully Dallas takes him. Thanks again, Nill.


Brunner hitting market, anyone besides us expressing interest?


Ribiero deal is ridiculous overpayment. Glad we get Alfie over him.
