This is good? I guess...maybe?

Seems like a Kevin Klein type deal.

Wondering how they plan on paying Seth Jones...

Cash or Czech?

Plenty of space to the cap ceiling. Their internal cap could go up depending on several factors, but I agree with Pete. Not much coming off the books next year.

Or they sign him to a bridge deal.
