    That’s cap circumvention and illegal on EJ. Probably have the values for Manson and Nichushkin flipped, and COL sure as hell isn’t going to go into the season with $7+ M of cap space which they could use to sign Kuemper or Kadri.

    someone is forgetting MacKinnon/Byram/Newhook are expiring next summer. Need more cap room going into this season than before.

    says who? Manson is everything Colorado needs on that 2nd pairing. Multiple other teams will offer him something around that.

    Yes lots of GMs give Manson that. There’s a reason why they call it the silly season. Sakic isn’t dumb

    Understandable, but there's a reason Sakic paid top dollar for him at deadline (even if it package wasn't that loaded going to Ducks to outside teams). Sakic really wants a legit top 4 dman to pair with Byram on his rise. Not many other names that can do that on FA market or on trade block.

    Fair point, but I think Sakic thinks this core will have lots of runway. Cap flexibility will be key.

    If there's a GM that can talk free agents into taking a team friendly deal, it's Sakic. Players can buy into winning a cup again or for the first time.

    But as you said, Manson is a market deal. Why wouldn’t that apply here?

    No I’m not someone who is proposing something illegal, that’s you. EJ stays or retires regardless his cap goes to MacK done. Byram and Newhook are RFA, with no rights. Regardless of all that you can’t roll cap space you could use that space on a somebody that makes the team better now.

    No one is allowed to do that anymore after the whole Orpik situation.
