Justin Peters is the roster move waiting to happen, they are going to get rid of him since he's on a One way contract. There not going to pay him 800k to play goalie in the AHL. Not going to happen.

Was literally just about to say that.

Move Peters and Bowman to free up $1.4 million in cap space.

800K for an AHL starting goalie is pretty much on par. Especially one that can start some games in the NHL every now and then.

800K for an AHL starting goalie is pretty much on par. Especially one that can start some games in the NHL every now and then.

 

 

There's only about 65 players total in the AHL that make over 105k a season and rookie/entry level contracts are maxed at 70k a season. The average salary of a starting AHL goalie is around 80k a season. Dan Ellis was paid 200k for his Charlotte Checkers salary. 

 

800k would place him in the top 10 pay wise in the AHL, further more it would be nearly half of what Charlotte's current payroll of 1.4 million is. No one on Charlotte's team right now is paid more then 150k a season right now and the team has one of the lowest payrolls in the AHL. 

 

So I doubt that the Hurricanes are going to want to front the bill on Peters making 800k for what's likely to be just AHL duty this upcoming season.

800k is only his salary if he is called up to the NHL. So yes, calling up an AHL starting goalie and paying him 800k to play at the NHL level is on par.

 

Btw, I'm not sure where 800k is coming from. According to the following link he is making only 550k next season at both the AHL and NHL  level. http://www.capgeek.com/player/651

 

The backup goalie we just signed is 800k. http://www.capgeek.com/player/956

$800k at the NHL level is perfectly fine.....at the AHL level is absurd.

Can't unload Pitkanen, he is easily the best defenseman on the team when healthy.

We could argue this to no end, but the only person who infuriated me more with his play was McBain.

There's no arguing it at all...

 

If you let Pitkanen go, you open up another top four gap... (Pitkanen had the highes +/- for defenseman on the team last year).

 

Ryan Murphy will never be a top four player, he just doesn't have the size. So unless you think Bellemore is a top four defenseman, there really is no argument for it.
