Salary Cap and your team

I have read many articles and seen many proposals on a salary cap. But I ask you, if you had 30 or 40 Mil to spend what would your team look like?Avalanche.

One of the harder teams to do by the by.

30 Million Dollar Cap –

David Aebischer – $450,000 US

Brett Clark – $450,000 US

Greg De Vries – $1,375,000 US

Chris Drury – $2,500,000 US

Adam Foote – $4,200,000 US

Riku Hahl – $415,000 US

Milan Hejduk – $2,700,000 US

Dan Hinote – $600,000 US

Brad Larsen – $423,500 US

Eric Messier – $700,000 US

Bryan Muir – $500,000 US

Vaclav Nedorost – $975,000 US

Scott Parker – $574,750 US

Steve Reinprecht – $475,000 US

Phillipe Sauve – $450,000 US (EST)

Joe Sakic – $9,832,727 US

Martin Skoula – $975,000 US

Radim Vrbata – $400,000 US

Stephen Yelle – $1,200,000 US

Total – $29,195,977

Lines.

Nedorost-Sakic-Hejduk

Reinprecht-Drury-Vrbata

Larsen-Yelle-Messier

Hinote-Hahl-Parker

Defense.

Foote-Skoula

De Vries-Muir

Clark-Messier (shifted back to D)

Goaltending.

Aebischer

Sauve

Odd Men Out-

Rob Blake, Peter Forsberg *tear drop falls from his eye*, Mike Keane, Patrick Roy

Reasoning- Blake is more expandable because of his salary. Forsberg is worth every penny of his salary but as is Sakic. Came to one or the other and Sakic is the Captain for a reason. Keane is nearing hte end of his carear. Roy age there as well.

Defense.

Foote-Skoula

De Vries-Muir

Clark-Messier (shifted back to D)

Goaltending.

Aebischer

Sauve

Odd Men Out.

Rob Blake, Mike Keane, Scott Parker, Patrick Roy

Reasoning – Blake is good ofensively but for half the money Foote is the better pickup. Keane is 35 and really not that great a PK player or a scorer, Parker does little but fight, Roy is 36…Hard to say goodbye, but gotta draw the line somewhere.

Well let’s see how many can budget well.
