I am looking at one thing: Bruins have 22 players signed for next year with a cap hit of 59 million. The two key players not signed are Horton (UFA) and Rask (RFA). I expect Rask to demand upwards of a 5 million cap hit, especially after his phenomenal playoff run so far. Horton, I could see asking for the same amount, thus putting them at around 70 million. They cant buyout Marc Savard cuz he is injured, likewise, Philly is stuck with Prongers massive contract. There are other teams in this league with similar problems. I think the free Agent Market is going to be a frenzy as teams try to get under the cap this summer. Should be a fun summer.


Marc Savard does not count towards their cap if he's on IR.

During next season, he will count during their offseason +10% cap number.  Actually, does that still exist?  I don't know if the new CBA changed that or not.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Devils should really take a shot at getting Horton. He would be great for us

That's not quite true - the Bruins can replace his salary with someone else's.  But he still counts towards their cap, meaning they will have serious trouble making deadline moves, even if they can fit Horton in there (which they simply may not be able to)

That would be such a dumb move. The Rangers can't take on any big multiyear contracts. From what I heard the queen is looking to become the highest paid goalie in the NHL. You figure after they sign their RFAs and let clowe walk They would have around 5 million in Cap. Then the next Year all the big guys need new contracts. They would have to blow up their team.

Assuming Richards is bought out, they could manage Zidlicky at $5 million for 2 or even 3 years.

I don't think Zidlicky's number is $5M, but yeah, the Rangers wouldn't totally struggle to fit him in. A lot depends on Marc Staal's long-term health.  I do think it'd be weird if they had Zidlicky, Stralman, and Del Zotto - feels like one of the latter two would be on his way out of town.

I think Del Zotto becomes expendable due to the solid play from Stralman and the acquisition of Moore.

Del zotto is a weaker zidlicky. No thanks
Btw I'm a zidlicky fan, I just think we only need one puck mover/pure offensively minded dman and if we can't have a legitimate one like Zid then I don't want a plug like del zotto, foster, etc

Del Zotto is young, playing in a system where it was frowned upon to have the D pinch in and be aggressive. Who knows what his peak is when he is allowed to be aggressive. I can definitely see the Rangers trading him for a high draft pick or some more forward depth since they have Stralman and Moore.

 

First two full seasons: 123GP 13G 49A  62PTS  +26

 

Great numbers for a 22 year old defenseman, there will be a lot of takers if he is shopped around.

Del zotto is a great defensive d man. Young. Zidlicky isn't young and is d liability. Yeah he may MOVE the puck but he isn't a threat with it like suter is etc. Adam larrson is supposed to be our threat let's give him thwarted role.

Del Zotto blows and we don't trade with the Rangers anyway, so it's irrelevant.
