Ryan Smyth?!! WOW!! I almost couldn't be happier with these 2 signings. The only thing it tells me is that Forsberg won't be back with the Avs in all likelihood, which really does bum me out. I hope I'm wrong.
Eh....I don't know about that....if he were to come back, it would prolly be on a 1 or 2 yr. deal anyway, so its not really a matter of jeopardizing the long term cap, its just a one shot type of deal, it would just be a matter of squeezing him into this year's balance sheet. I dunno how far under the cap you guys were coming into today, but depending on the figures...for a one year deal its entirely possible.
