At the very least, entering this season with just $18k in cap space and a potential $1.3M in player bonuses guarantees carry over into next season. The potential for that might be eased if you take Stalock off the roster, via LTIR or some other mechanism.

It would be a shame to see McLeod get reduced ice time. Lots to like about his first few NHL performances, and more playing time and experience will only benefit him. I think Turris, Shore, Benson, Kassian, and even Yamamoto are the forwards most vulnerable to seeing reduced roles if Holloway makes the team and can contribute immediately.

That probably will be the opening roster but Holloway will get sent to bakersfield. They need to be that close to the cap to get the full LTI benefit.

Fair enough. That makes this a one-day roster, with Klefbom, and potentially Stalock headed to LTIR right away, and possible reassignments within 1-9 games.
