Rask himself is likely to take up much of that remaining cap room for next season. It's why I believe one of Horton or Lucic ($6 mil cap hit starting next season) will have to be gone. That is likely Horton.
Horton is a gonzo for sure. Boston also only has Bergeron and Seidenberg signed through next season.
Horton is an interesting guy. He's not an elite level winger, is more of a middling 1st/2nd line guy, will be 28 in a couple of weeks and will be chasing a big, long term deal, no doubt. Could be a big mistake. His best years could be behind him, and I don't think we need a middling 1st/2nd liners. We need a bona fide 30G/60Pt guy.
