I never have any concerns with Young Breezy and this Lightning front office when it comes to managing the cap.

My concern is the ability to make the last 1-2 moves to put this team over the top that they never seem to pull off.

The great news about the Point deal even with his cap friendly AAV he still will be RFA in 3 years. Barkov, Gaudreau, MacKinnon, Scheifele, and some others have great AAV but at end of their contracts they are all UFAs with great leverage. Nylander has an AAV of about $7M and Ehlers at $6M, but they too will become UFAs.
Thing about Point, he is a centerman who can play against top lines. 2 years ago in SC playoffs his line led to win over Boston as they stymied Bergeron- Marchand-Pasternak. Last year Cirelli freed him up for more offensive production but Lightning need his D. Whole team has to play better defensively. Caps had similar issue before they won in 2018.
Agree with Pete, there will need to be one or two effective adds like Sydor in spring.

Good to be wrong sometimes. I really didn't think he would take less than 8-8.5. There are some advantages of doing this deal for both sides for sure and as was pointed out, no state taxes helped too.

Gotta see this: the Canadian media (this is SportsNet) are beside themselves with envy and grudging respect for the way the Bolts manage the cap. Watch it to the end and enjoy!
