Not that I think it matters, but the rights to our pending UFAs are also exposed. Murray, Dell, Tennyson and Carrick. 

Nooooooo not Matt Tennyson

The roster freeze lifts the 22nd at 1 eastern, FYI

If I'm Seattle, I would take Price. Yes his contract is awful, but you need to make floor somehow. Plus he is from that area so he would be super happy to go there.  Then Montreal would be screwed.

The Devils have got to some spending to do to get to the cap floor as it is. If Subban is taken, that's going to make that situation even worse. Gotta hope that a top level D is signed with that all that cap space.

It'll be interesting to see what deals teams have done with Seattle to take or not take certain players. I have to say that there's some good players on the available list. Landeskog, Adam Larsson, Hamilton, Holtby, Hall. Wednesday is going to be an interesting day.

How far are we from the floor without Subban?

Man I sure hope we don’t lose PK. Filling his minutes and his cap hit will be tough. He’s a top-4 dman. Plus he’s a fun guy to have on the team.

Ya pretty bold of Fitz to risk PK and losing another $9m off our cap. Makes you wonder if he doesn’t have something else at play. 

 

I'd like to believe he's going to be big on Hamilton and possibly chase Jones

We know he was willing to gamble on Tarasenko too so this could be his "lets speed this process up a bit" summer

We could afford all 3 of those guys and then some.

After several seasons of hearing "weaponizing cap space" and nothing much coming of it, I'm trying to keep my expectations in check, but surely Fitz has to pull the trigger on a significant signing before the new season.

For the record, we still have the following players of note to make decisions on:

UFA:

Murray

Carrick

Tennyson

Dell

RFA:

Sharangovich

Kuokkanen

Merkley

Bastian

If you paid everyone on that list $4m,l (which would be $3m to much in some cases), we’d still not be at the floor. Wow.

I just went through the lists to see if I could figure out who I would pick. The answer was too many centers and left wings, barely any right wings.

But there are a ton of good options, they will have a very competitive team.

I'm still surprised Sigs is protected. 

Agreed. He could have been left unprotected with little to no risk of his being chosen.

Pretty much the only teams these big name players want to go to. We're becoming the NBA. Stupid.
