Kings have some spending to do

I didn't know a team had a min amount they have to spend to start the season. Kings are under about 13 mil.

Actually, to post a rumor, there is supposed to be a link to substantiate said rumor.

Its called a salary cap. Not suprised you didnt know.

Quote:
Sources tell TSN that for the 2008-09 season, the salary cap will rise to a maximum of $56.7-million. That is a $6.4-million increase from this past season when the cap was set at $50.3-million.

From thefourthperiod.com:

The Chicago Blackhawks have received plenty of interest from a number of their counterparts for some of their current roster players.
Goalie Nikolai Khabibulin has been at the center of the rumor stage ever since the Hawks signed free agent goalie Cristobal Huet.

Blackhawks GM Dale Tallon has indicated that he's not actively shopping Khabibulin and is more than ready to start the 2008-09 season with both him and Huet between the pipes.

Actually, Scott, he was referring to the salary floor, the minimum amount a team can spend.

Again, from thefourthperiod.com:

The Blue Jackets continue to negotiate with Don Meehan, the agent for restricted free agent goaltender Pascal Leclaire.

I wasn't arguing, I was just pointing out that he mentioned he wasn't aware there is a minimum.

I'm not aware of their current cap situation, but there's absolutely no way Tallon can keep both Khabibulin AND Huet under the current cap, and still employ 18 skaters as well.

Is that a threat or a promise, Brian?
