Well, that’s just nifty. Now Khan(!)‘s telling us his math narrows the Wing cap space down to 18 million. Nothing frigging worse than a math-challenged pharmacist moon-lighting as a Wing beat writer.
MLive (if you can get to the story through their slow-ass server)
They are expected to sign Swiss star Damien Brunner to a two-way, entry-level contract on Sunday, or shortly after.
It will take roughly another $5 million to sign restricted free agents Kyle Quincey and Justin Abdelkader this summer.
That would leave about $18 million in available cap space and just one available roster spot. Of course, they can clear more money and roster spots by trading and/or sending down players to the Grand Rapids Griffins.
Can someone explain to me why we absolutely must sign Former Dive Kyle Quincey to a deal that’s at least 3 million? And don’t even tell me Abdelkader’s getting 2.
Former Dive Kyle Quincey can earn 2 million for the right to prove he deserves to be a Red Wing.
Abdelkader can get 1 million based on what he’s shown us and what he’s capable of.
And that equals 3 and that equals 21 left for the real toys: motherfuching Suter and Parise, KHAN(!!!!!)

About Abel to Yzerman
Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
