<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>sabresparaavida</b></div><div>We already have a winger making 9 mil in Skinner, adding a 10 mil winger will likely create cap troubles down the line. Our defense is going to be expensive in a few years when Dahlin and Power need new deals. If Tage repeats he’ll get in the neighborhood of 7-9 mil, and if Cozens becomes what we hope the cap will be tight just when we’re starting to compete for cups. Then if/when quinn, JJP, Savoie, etc need new deals we could struggle. We’re still a year away from a big move like this, if we ever have one. I think we’re really trying to build a team from the ground up like Tampa, the cup penguins. Adding Tkachuk could make that difficult. Not to mention that he probably wouldn’t want to sign a long term deal here which would make it not worth it to begin with.</div></div>
If Tage Thompson repeat his 35+ goals season, and then agree to his salary + 6 mil from Okoposo, for multiple years, Sabres are golden down the middle.
Olofsson has 2 years, that perfect with Quinn, Peterka new deals.
Dahlin extension won't be a hug cap hit, since he is already at 6 aav.
Savoie, Ostlund, Kulich most likely won't sniff NHL next year, so their 3 yrs ELC wouldn't start before 23/24 and would go 26/27 (Skinner deal ends then)
Skinner could be bought out after 23/24 season if needed.
Only real hit would be if Cozens and Power got 8 years fat deals out of the ELC.
