Playoffs got me catching the vapours.
HOW MUCH CAP CAN WE ADD?
This is shitty and poorly done. I should have projected like five years down the road. I only did it for next year. I probably did it wrong, too. Fucking math, how do them work? and all that.
tl/dr: we got 24.3 in cap space, we'd have 10 roster spots to fill, most of those spots are in the forward ranks. We have a ton of cheap RFA guys / minor league guys who could fill them. Only real raise not booked in (ie Brodie is booked in) is Backlund. He gets what? 3 - 4 million? So assume 20 million to fill 9 spots, and we have the internal depth to fill them without having to go to market.
In short: We can add a big ticket guy, I think, and still be able to pay Gio the equity share in the team he is going to ask for.
I'm going to assume when Hudler and Jones come off the books, 23 and 13 will be taking those cap numbers. With that assumption in place (and the further assumption that we would then replace Hudler and Jones roster spot with cheap kids) I think we can add at least one more big ticket guy to this group.
Fuck. I really should have projected 5 years out. Fuck me.
Furthermore, I think Peter Loubardias should be fired.
I think this chick bangs probably.
Why is she smelling her armpit, though?
