So about half what Backes will make. Good, right?

Guess they know now what they need to sign Charlie and Carlo.

So how does this affect McAvoy and Carlo? Will they have to trade someone off the NHL roster to shed salary to fit those two in?
This may be helpful.

We have been talking about it in the pinned salary cap thread, but I don’t see anyway they get cap compliant without some kind of trade that moves out fairly significant salary.

I really don’t see a way to sign these two without attaching a significant non roster asset to Backes to move his contract that won’t make this team considerably worse next year.
