I think that includes 8 defensemen, so add $700k when someone (Pouliot) is sent down, so $2.6m If Barbie wants $1.75-2/y for 4 years, that leaves, at best, just under a million under the cap.sighyoung wrote:According to this site, about $1.9 million: https://www.capfriendly.com/teams/bluescardsfantx wrote:seems about right...just leaves barbie, correct?
anyone know what's left cap-wise now?
If the Blues and Maroon wanted a reunion, he would have to take close to a million which is a rough pay cut (He would replace a $750k salary in MacEachern or $760k in Kyrou) and leave the Blues with basically zero wiggle room. A million under is already tighter than what Armstrong said he wanted. (He likes a $2m cushion.)
EDIT: Barring a trade and I doubt we will see one, the Blues sign Barbashev and are done. I think DA likes this team and the defensive depth Eddy brings, and I'm guessing both JayBo and Eddy are gone next year, unless Eddy resigns for about the same $, so there should be money enough for Schenn, Petro and Dunn.
