haha, like I said, the numbers I used are ones that I feel are in the high end of things.  I think they'll all be lower than what I quoted.  Just wanted to show that even on the high end, we'll be more than fine moving forward.

A lot of us have PTBD. That guy was (and still is) a reason to fret and stew. Imagine if he hadn’t screwed up the cap so much he had the room to sign Petey to around what Hughes came in at? Nope. He needed Beagle and the boys. Moran.

$24,711,666 in cap space

13 players signed

on Cap friendly main page

but on the 'make a team" page it is

$23,211,666 with  a 14 man roster  and Demko in the line up.

need 3 D men to play every night

2 forwards to play every night

1 back up goalie

then the benchwarmers

maybe your numbers are realistic, maybe they're not.  I guess we will see!  I personally wouldn't be shocked if any one of your proposed signings held out for more $$$ or walked away if that is the max we could offer.  OEL @ just under $5m is going to be painful for 2 years.  Obviously anyone is replaceable (maybe other than Hughes) if they don't want to be here.

That's 8million we need to replace the minutes of Myers, Cole, get a 3C, and sign some 4th/3rd liners. 

Based on the roster I've indicated:

 

Hoglander-Pettersson-Podkolzin

Mikheyev-Miller-Boeser

Joshua-Suter-Garland

PDG-Aman-Karlsson

 

Hughes-Hronek

Zadorov-Soucy

???-Juulsen

Friedman

 

You can pick and choose who you want to upgrade on with $8M.  The main group is all there though.

 

Personally I'd spend $5M on a top 4 RHD (Tanev? Roy?), and possibly bring Blueger back at $2M.  Leaves $1M in cap space.

 

Hoglander-Pettersson-Podkolzin

Mikheyev-Miller-Boeser

Joshua-Blueger-Garland

PDG-Suter-Karlsson/Aman/Bains/etc

 

Hughes-Hronek

Soucy-Tanev/Roy

Zadorov-Juulsen

Friedman

I see so many people here worrying that we can't re-sign Hronek, Joshua, and Zadorov... it's so far from the case.  Here are ACTUAL numbers with extensions on the high end for all 3.  Notice even when OEL's big cap hit comes into effect that it's nicely offset by our young guns moving up from the farm (2 years from now).

 

Hronek with $7.8M AAV extension.

Joshua with $3.5M AAV extension.

Zadorov with $4.5M AAV extension.

 

Next year we have nearly $8M in cap space to bring in a top 6 forward or top 4 defenceman.

 

2 and 3 years from now when the big OEL cap hits come into play, we still have millions to work with (and that's assuming Hoglander signs a big $5.5M AAV extension).

 

So like I said.  RELAX.  This team that is highly competitive will be able to stay together.  We're in good shape for several years.

 

PS - if we manage to trade Mikheyev, we're in even better shape.

Need to include Poolman LTIR ($2.5M) next year (2024-2025).

I’d trade garland at draft to chi for two 2nds 

he’s at peak value now 

milky value too low and I bet will bounce back 

 

even without trading garland 

 

Hronek 7.5x 8 yrs

joshua 4x 5 yrs 

zads 4.5

tanev 3.75 x 3 yrs 

bluegger 1.75x 3 yrs 

= 21.5

silovs .75 

 

22.25

= 900k left

hogz Petey Brock 

joshuo Miller Garland 

milky Suter Podz 

Bains Bluegger Aman 

 

hughes Hronek 

soucy Tanev

Zads Juulsen

 

Demko 

Silovs 

 

 

still a great team and Podz, hogz, and milky should have better years 

Next year 

defense could be best in nhl
