And Then There Was One!
Trevor Lewis signs a 1 year 1.35 million dollar deal.
He gets a moderate raise, he can prove this year he can actually score and if he doesn’t, Linden Vey steps in next season.
It’s been a good day for Lewis as he was also invited to the USA Olympic team because he skates really fast.
This leaves only Kyle Clifford as the lone King to sign. I don’t think they trade him but rather will figure out a way after training camp to make it all work. Whether its dealing Jarret Stoll and his 3 mil cap hit, or sending Schultz and Carcillo to Manchester (where they may or may not be claimed on waivers)
The Kings now have a whopping 250,000 in cap space. Yes, I know, they don’t have to make decisions until training camp, but the Kings are just one player away from rounding out their roster.
With the cap likely to go up to 70 million next season and Willie Mitchell coming off the books, the Kings will have 12 million in cap space with having to resign Ben Scrivens, Matt Greene and RFA’s Matt Frattin (who likely will get a raise from his 487K salary), Dwight King (who won’t get much of a raise no matter what he does this season) and Keaton Ellerby (see Dwight King)
Once Clifford is signed, what the hell are we gonna talk about? How much the cap will go up NEXT year and how the Kings should re-sign Matt Greene?
