Anyone knows?

..and the next question would be: who would you try to sign?

Option: wait until the ½+ season to move in order to get exactely what's needed before the playoffs.

Thanks Hedge your link * http://www.capgeek.c...rts.php?Team=26 * has been most helpful. ;)

So it's roughly 10 millions as of now so there's enough to spend when needed.

I wish Paul Martin wasn't signed for so long though.

Can't really look at the cap just because at the end of the session it's dropping anyway, don't expect a trade where we take on a big salary, we need to resign some people.

I'm not a big fan of rentals, however this is the year to do it.

Yes. Problem is: with the shortened season there probably wontbe too many "sellers" but lots of buyers. There wont be too many "rental"players available by the deadline and those who are wont come for free ...
A mere 7 on Whitney's account. Stupid purse! :angry:

This would be the year to rent... but prices are going to be too high. But it would be worth trading away an Eric Tangradi or one of d prospects (minus Morrow and the other obvious) but it would be worth getting rid of despres or another young d man to sign someone like an iginla for example. Maybe bring them in make a playoff run and try to get a deal for next year on a guy on his way out who just wants to win.

If history is any indication teams should know they're out before the trade deadline. I agree the prices will be high, but I think there should be at least as many sellers as buyers.

With teams being able to retain salary we should see a few more hockey deals even between teams still in the running.

Heard some talk about Gonchar.

The Sens might be sand-bagging d-men in the minors?

That's one of the more plausible rumors I've heard.
