No I definitely take this into account in a major way in my posts.
Here I have the following coming off the books:
- Andersen's 4mil, to be replaced by Melnichuk or a cheap 1-2mil cap hit veteran
- Barabanov's 2mil, he can resign for cheap if he plays poorly, or if he plays very well, which I hope and expect with this roster, will price himself out of SJ, but he can be replaced with Robins or another ELC,
- Nieto and Poolman's 1.5mil each combining to 3mil, to be replaced with Merkley's ELC and either Nieto with himself at a cheaper rate or a guy like Checkovich or another ELC
So 9mil opens up there for 4 spots to fill + Ferraro and Hertl (and Kniazhev's) extensions.
The cheap suggested new ELCs/re-signings leaves around 5mil plus the existing cap space I have here which is around 2mil, but Jones' buyout penalty increases for the next few years by 500K, so in reality it's 5mil + 1.5 in existing cap space for a total of around 6.5mil to cover for Hertl+Ferraro+Kniazhev's extensions, which I think is plenty:
Hertl a 1mil increase, Ferraro a bridge 2yr deal for ~3mil (2mil increase), Kniazhev a 2yr bridge with a 1mil increase, for a total of 4mil increase covered by the 6.5mil in cap space, leaving 2.5mil.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>bhavikp27</b></div><div>Assuming your protection list: 7-3-1 format
-Couture, Hertl, Kane, Meier, Labanc, Balcers, Gambrell, Vlasic, Karlsson, Simek, Korenar
Exposed: 2 F (??), 1 D (Burns), 1 G (Jones)
Sharks will need to re-sign two of Donato, Sorensen, Marleau, Nieto (saw a report yesterday SJ may re-sign him so he's probably one of the two Fs) before the draft or trade for a F that meet the requirements.
Everyone else that is not protected, does not meet the requirements and are not exempted will be available. Seattle <strong>can</strong> select one of them (Donato, Sorensen, True, Halbgewachs, Marleau, Nieto, Letunov, Gabriel, Dahlen, Pateryn, Jaros, Middleton, Meloche). Although it's unlikely it happens, they could do it.
The 2F/1D/1G exposed is only to ensure the quality of players available. Everyone else who has 2+ pro seasons can be selected.</div></div>
So going with my proposed protections, say SJ resigns Nieto and Donato (or even Sorensen for league minimum) before the draft, is it then that the 27 GR for Dahlen applies and only then that he's no longer exposed for SEA to possible select?
More clearly, imagine Nieto and Sorensen resign. Couture Balcers Gambrell Meier Labanc Hertl Kane are the forwards protected. Is it then that SEA can choose between Jones, Burns, Nieto, or Sorensen? And if Nieto and Sorensen or Donato don't resign by the draft, then other guys like True, Halbgewachs, Letunov, Dahlen and others are exposed?
