    We are going to be well under the cap for several years. No need to give away assets to be 23 million under the cap instead of 14 million
    Shibbal18 and Dcochy liked this.

    There are a number of FAs I'd like to take a shot at plus I'd liked to restructure the team and I think Seattle is the best chance at getting rid of Skinners contract - my thought is if you are rebuilding you should rebuild to a team identity.

    You need to pay a lot more than this to get rid of Skinner. He is probably the most untradeable player in the NHL.
