    Gotta think there is a lot better value out there than 6.25m X 2 Murray

    Tage at 4th line C? He’s currently pacing for a 40 goal season.

    Well there are 18 UFA goalies next summer. Yeah, some may not be NHL good but many want to continue their NHL careers. Probably some RFAs that teams may have to trade for cap reasons.
    We'll see how the Sabres are this season. Maybe, just maybe, it isn't so glum a future we expected in October.

    I do not understand those UFA defensemen signings at all.

    Also Bryson is in the lineup and we aren't giving away girgensons, who wears a letter and is a darn good checking forward.

    You'd have to pay us to take murray

    I mean you made this AGM about us being good. We are also a very good hockey market and plugged in with the league and USA hockey.

    Unless you were making a lame attack on the city itself

    Murray looks terrible with such a contract and stats. Ottawa will have to pay to be picked up by another team.

    Anderson, Caggiula, Hinostroza, but you are correct no one who will close the salary gap to reach the floor.
    I find it difficult to understand how a two time Stanley Cup GK could regress as much as Murray has.
    Buffalo may need his salary to reach the floor, as only Olofsson and Ruotsalainen are RFA's next year.
    Boychuk @ $6,000,000, Miller @ $3,875,000, Butcher @ $2,822,764, Hägg @ $1,600,000 are most likely traded or not offered contracts (Hägg is playing well enough but with Samuelsson lighting it up in Rochester IDK) $14,297,764 of cap space that needs to filled.
    They are currently $6,697,725 above the floor, with $14,750,000 in Injury reserve.
    With the way the team performs when Dell is between the pipes, I think it would be a good move to pick him off of waivers.
    Maybe Ottawa could retain part of his salary and send him to Buffalo for future consideration, but I would take him off of waiver if that did not take place.
