Boys, I think we have a team.

Does anyone know what our cap looks like? I would be curious to see if they make any deadline moves to make a push..?

I think we have $12.48 million of cap space. I'm not sure if this figure is accurate, but I remember reading it somewhere.

I'm not familiar with hockey salery structures and how hard the cap is set, ext.. but would that be enough to do anything?

Who would you all suggest as a late season addition? Defense, perhaps?

It's enough to make some moves for sure.

A lot of people are pretty high on Yandle out in Phoenix. The Coyotes are going to be in pretty big cap trouble, and Yandle's $5.25 mill cap hit makes him their likely first departure.

I'm not sure why, but a lot of people are ready to deal Semin as well. I really think we should hold off on him and let him come into his own. He could be a huge asset down the stretch.

good game, nice to keep the momentum going... long break until we play again on Monday. Defense looked good all night with the new guys in didnt miss a beat. Ellis looked strong again and im glad they gave him another start before it goes too long so he can stay in game shape

12.48 million is a poo load of money. You could bring in at least 3 really solid players with that money in hockey.

Yeah but the team has an internal salary cap that Karmanos imposes. It's why we usually play at around the cap floor but JR got him to open the wallet this year. Yandle is a pipe dream. He's going to command at least Murphy +++. Semin gets dealt if we aren't competitive at the deadline. I honestly think if we get another player for the bottom 6 and a number 4/5 defensemen we'd be set.

I'd easily give up Murphy, McBain, and a 1st for Yandle. Murphy has been struggling for quite some time and he has slightly better version of McBain written all over him.

I would too but I really dont think Phoenix would. I like Streit also but I probably wouldnt give Murphy for him.
