Team Explanation
Can I give Leon a payrise?

10 years ago, before the 2010-11 season begun the salary cap of the league was only $59,4M, which is very low when compared to the league nowadays.

This challenge is to create as competitive team as possible with the salary cap of $59,4M with a couple of restrictions.
- 23-man roster
- max of 2 ELCs
- at least one player with the cap hit of $9M or more (because considering that the biggest contract of today's league (McDavid's contract) has the cap percentage of 15.3 from today's cap, from the $59,4M salary cap that percentage would total up around to $9,1M)

Hey this is pretty cool. It's still pretty crazy how the cap floor today is higher than the 2010-11 salary cap.

I mean I guess since you have the cap space for it and it's added there. I don't see how it would differ from having a $9,5M player.

However I see only a 22 man roster here, but since you have a $1M left in cap space that'll do. Good job.

You must have commented when I was looking for my last guy if not I'd just swap him with Kuch and play Mac in the middle. I feel like you'd see a lot of the same guys with this. I only went with Kadri of Couts because I didn't wanna match your team.
