Cap World: Jones, Toffoli, Fraser, Berube
Jeff Solomon is earning his paycheck.
It’s obvious the Kings were looking at making a deal with Edmonton (again) but somehow it was just like marrying a Kardashian. Either the Oilers didn’t want to pay ANY of Gagner’s salary or the number the Kings were asking for to fit him under their current cap base, was too much for the Oilers.
The Kings also shed themselves 15 days of Tyler Toffoli’s 716K salary and Martin Jones 550K
You have to have TWO goaltenders on your roster, Berube is brought up and actually costs the Kings MORE as he makes 2,250 more than Jones.
Which brings us to Colin Fraser.
What you get is Colin Fraser and his 825K salary off the books and the hopes that nobody claims the two time Stanley Cup winner… because he sucks.
As of today, the Kings would have nearly 4 million in cap space but more importantly, the Kings would have over FIVE MILLION in space at the deadline. This means Lombardi COULD go get Vanek (doubtful) or Moulson (doubtful) or Cammalleri (maybe) or MacDonald or a bunch of scrubs none of us ever talked about and will be scratching our heads.
Wouldn’t it suck if Jones and/or Toffoli were hurt in the next few Manchester games?
How many of you both the Manchester Burger King Jersey’s?
