Interesting Cap Situation


Avalanche CapGeek

 

Was looking at CapGeek and the Avs are still almost 4 million UNDER the floor with a 22 man roster. Now we all expect Landeskog to make the team and TJ & Cumiskey still need to be signed but even after that the Avs may be just under the floor. The cap floor looks to be at least 3.8 away. Landeskog's contract will come in at around a 3.5-3.6 cap hit (and that is IF he makes the team). That still leaves around $200,000-300,000 (if not more) needed to reach the floor. Even if TJ and Cumiskey re-sign, they can't be expected to make much more than the lowest paid player (currently) listed at forward and defense... especially after seeing Porter and Wilson's contracts. If all goes perfectly, the Avs are just barely going to reach the cap floor. If it does not... there will be a scramble to "add" salary. The good news is that players like Yip, Cumiskey, etc all will fall near the bottom and more likely to be moved than someone higher up in salary "food chain".
