CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $64,816,667; BONUSES: $300,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): -$216,667
Hey Tuna, the -$216,667 means they are currently over the cap. Which means they need to drop a player, so lets say they send Trevor Smith down (no idea if they can without clearing waivers and really don't care).
With Clarkson done for the first 10 games and no cap relief from that they will only have 12 forwards and 7 defenseman available.
Can you tell me what happens when someone gets hurt? Hell, Lupul has been healthy way to long and is do to miss a ton of games any time now!
The Leafs have to get rid of someone with salary unless they are going to run with a 20 man roster for the first 10 games and just hope no one gets injured. Remember how the Flames screwed themselves over a few years ago having to run a short bench because they didn't have the cap room to bring anyone up from the minors?
Should be interesting.
