    Surprised he didn't even get a day in camp but I guess he's just taking up space at this point. Making room for someone? (ADA, BL?)

    A cautionary tale in taking on cap hits in exchange for player assets, as cap situations can change quickly, and you're still stuck with a guy like Belesky who you got a year and a half ago when you had plenty of space.

    capfriendly now has us at $2,085,201 in cap space

    should be enough to sign both ADA and Lemiux. unless we are trying to pen them to longer term deals for a few more bucks and still need to bury Smith to make enough room

    Why though?

    Doesn’t change the cap. They’re fine for the summer

    Sending down Smith only gives them $1M off the cap.

    yeah but that extra mil should be enough to give them both their value from a 2 year deal as opposed to their 1 year QO's
