    I'm just having a look at Cap Geek to see who most needs to make moves, and quickly.  Vancouver is tapped out and still needs to sign three or four guys, so they'll need to move Luongo quickly.  Hurricanes are tight and can't be happy with the state of their roster.  Kings are tight, but probably okay.  The Leafs look like they have a lot of room, but they have a lot of guys to sign including Kadri and Bernier as RFAs and Bozek, who has become a really solid player for them, as a UFA.  Undrafted guy will be the hardest to lock down because he's that UFA who hasn't made big bank yet.  This is his chance.

    There's already a lot of talk about the cap moving up big in 14.  I'm thinking there are probably some loopholes  GM's have been studying to maybe bridge that gap.

    Overall, it's a crappy year to hit UFA the way things are looking.  Many teams are in the same boat as the B's.

    I've liked what little I've seen of Burmistrov and would hope the change of scenery could serve as a kick in the pants. Plenty of player movement coming up league wide. 



    The GMs that left themselves lots of cap room are going to get real good role players, such as Kelly, for cheap. There will be some movement and more compliance buyouts. I believe in chang of scenary trades, they work.

    "All that said, if Chiarelli is going to look to make a move to keep Horton, it pretty much has to be at least one of Kelly or Peverley, and his comments today have him committed to a trade to make it happen."

    I have to think someone could use Kelly or Peverley. Too bad Peverleys dip had to be so bad, so soon a damn shame. Kelly would be missed if he is the choice, he was so strong against Chicago.

    Hey maybe Stan can call Pouliot's agent ? "kick the tires" so to speak...

    You have to let Horton go, it's the only way they can sign Rask and still maybe have enough money left to get one more possible veteran scorer, or maybe not even that, but you can't have Rask and have Horton...it's impossible.

    that is just sooooooooo not true. what do you think Rask is going to get? 9 million? it's incredibly possible to have rask and horton. in fact, it's easy. sign rask, trade peverley, sign horton. done. not hard. not impossible. easy.

    Not "easy" if Rask gets over $6M and Horton $5M.  They still need a backup goalie and 2 skaters with the roughly $2M you'd have left.

    Scott Cullen's team doesn't have Savard on LTIR, No Horton and keeping Daugavins Yuk!

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=426389

    "Early in his career, Rich Peverley was a feel-good story: an undrafted player who proved he belonged in the league after he was picked up on waivers, but he struggled in 2013, going through some ridiculously bad luck offensively. Consider: Peverley scored at just barely more than half the rate of 2011-2012 (0.74 ppg down to 0.38) and did so while generating more shots on goal per game with better possession stats. What stands out about Peverley's production is that his 5-on-5 on-ice shooting percentage was just 4.63%, low even for standard third-line production.

    Following up the best offensive season of his career in 2011-2012, when he scored 20 goals and 39 points while scoring on a career-high 16.4% of his shots, Chris Kelly was bitten hard by the regression monster in 2013, finishing with three goals and nine points, scoring on a career-low 7.5% of his shots. A reasonable expectation might fall somewhere in between those two extremes, though he'll be 33 in November, so some decline is likely creeping into his production."



    Quick trades of salary will need to happen before July 1st for sure.

    http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/bruins/extras/bruins_blog/2013/06/jeremy_jacobs_bruins_will_spend_to_the_cap.html

    "The NHL salary cap will dip to $64.3 million in 2013-14. It is a ceiling the Bruins will spend to if necessary.

     

    “The Bruins will spend to the cap,” owner Jeremy Jacobs said during a press conference at TD Garden. “The Bruins are going to spend to the cap.”

     

    The trick is for the Bruins to re-sign Nathan Horton (unrestricted) and Tuukka Rask (restricted) while remaining cap-compliant. Jacobs has given GM Peter Chiarelli the green light to use a long-term injury exception on Marc Savard if the Bruins aim to exceed the cap by his average annual value.

     

    Jacobs considers 2013-14 a blip on the cap radar. Jacobs expects the 2014-15 cap to rise substantially based on projected NHL revenue.

     

    * Jacobs is operating under the assumption that the NHL will participate in the 2014 Olympics.

    * Chiarelli has one more year remaining on his contract, according to president Cam Neely. The Bruins are open to discussing an extension for Chiarelli during the offseason."


    So yes on using Savard's LTIR but NO on buying out Peverley. Can't have everything my way. Wonder how many "Heck No!" PC has heard while shopping Peverley since Wednesday. Gotta give JJ credit on the Savard money at least, can't really blame him for saying no on buyouts.

    @DarrenDreger: Bruins are making progress in trying to re-sign Bergeron, Horton and Rask. Sounds like Peverley is available for trade. #TSN

     

    This, from the "DUH" department of reporting.

    Interesting if PC signs Horton and Rask before trading anyone. Then the obligatory "Chiarelli will have just a few days before the season starts to get under th cap".

    Really ?

    Why would the Bs not sign Horton, then lament not having a player with playoff scoring ability at the trade deadline next year?  Peverly is a goner, Kelly maybe.  Too bad Horton would not sign a one year deal at the same 4 million.  

    Nice thread by all.  

    Don't judge me monkey!

    Great post and some great responses...

    Book, I think you are on the mark. I still think Kelly brings a lot of other things to the game and hope he isn't let go. Also like Horton and hope a deal can be made... if nothing long term, maybe 1yr/$4.5M?

    Yeti replaces Pevs who will sadly get moved for little if anything in return.
