So I was thinking, I like the Muzzin trade, we needed a Dman but what does next year look like now? It was already tight to fit everyone in before we traded for a 4M+ Dman, I have attached something for you to look at, do you agree someone else needs to go? 1. League allows for teams to have 20-23 players on its roster. Next year, we may need to have only 21. That saves a little $. 2. Can we get both Matthews and Marner for under 20 M combined? 3. Can we get Kapanen and Johnson for under 5M? Already we know there is no money to keep Gardiner or Hainsey, so cheap rookies or veterans will have to take their places. I am thinking Zaitsev or Johnsson or brown may also need to go and replaced with a cheaper option. Next year is going to be so tight. There are basically 5 spots we need to fill outlined below in white.
