The Blues felt confident with their depth heading into the season. They emerged from training camp with three scoring lines and the potential for two abrasive grinding lines as well.
The NHL salary cap for the 2014-15 season, will be $69 million.
This is up from $64.3 million in the 2013-14 season.
What will this mean for the Blues? It is doubtful that we flirt with the cap ceiling again, but this is good news in terms of players like Spezza that the Blues may be targeting in a trade.
IF, the Blues trade for Spezza, his cap hit for next season is $7 million, but his actual salary is only $4 million.
In short, we'll have enough cap room for Spezza or Stastny for that matter, should the Blues decide to acquire either...or *shudder*...both. Especially considering that Ottawa wants a top 6 forward in the package for Spezza, so that is some salary coming off the books that would be going the other way.
