I mean when looking at the market value of D this year it's good on the Cap. This issue will be the term but I think that's the only way he got the number low. When you look at how the team is set up for the future though you can really see that Dubas knows it's got to be this year to find success and perhaps just wanted to put a stop to the distraction of Rielly's future for the year.
Looking at the way this roster is set up for next year even I don't know what they're going to do. They have 16 players signed for 22-23 and they will make $76 million. Not to mention Sandin, Liljegren, Engvall, Kase are all RFA's and you need a starting goalie. Moves are going to have to be made absolutely, as just to get a goalie is going to cost you 4. If you look currently there are only 4 goalies in the top 20 in wins this season making less (Campbell, Greiss, Talbot, Jarry) and I don't expect the cap to increase by a large amount with projections of a million dollar increase.
Honest question, how does this team look to get better with this situation because I feel like we are in the twilight of our opportunity here and they're not looking better than last years squad which arguably had the easiest path to the Conference Finals anyway.
