    Default Who would you cut to get under cap?

    Need help making a decision on the last 2 players to cut. We run a 12 team extreme (extreme, cause of a prospect minor system as well, limited waiver wire) keeper salary cap league (125 mil)
    I won last year, and want to repeat. I need to shed 6.1 mil (actual cap hit counted)
    I am stuck between Galchenyuk(4.9m) and Reilly Smith (5.0m) and Cam Talbot (4.1m) or Darcy Keumper (1.85)
    Any combo of goalie and player will work for me, I don't think its a game changer cause my team is stacked but I do not want to make a bad move. Reading everything on your site and I am still conflicted. Who would you drop?

    All stats are counted, including hits, blocks etc. Rest of my team below (not prospects) in case I am missing someone obvious. Guys like Rolovic, Elvis, Mittelstadt are propects who have played more than 82 games and need to be dropped or come to big club.
    EDIT ** Need to drop two players to be compliant on roster size**
    Thanks for your help!

    Ryan Suter is the most overpriced player you have at 7.5m - That would give you 1.6m roughly to replace him with a peripheral Dman
    Outside of Dubnyk, I don't trust your G's enough at this point to cut one of them.. I'd wait to see how starting jobs pan out before making a move there

    Can you just cut Suter and be done with it?
    Or do you need two open roster spaces?

    I did forget to mention that I do need two spaces. I currently have 7 on the bench, and need to be at 5.

    I thought about dropping Suter as well, I was 18 million over before, but I was able to trade a few pieces (McDonagh and Schultz) for Fabbro and a some draft picks. Nobody wanted Suter.

    Suter and R. Smith are my drops then. Give you some extra flexibility too.

    Suter for sure (way too much cap for what he brings) and... I'd say Talbot. Big Save Dave is going to run with it this year. And you already have some nice lottery tickets in Darcy (will Raanta's leg fall off?) and Elvis (is he for real?)

    Thats a good point. I guess I have been hesitating on Suter, cause I do not have anymore D on the bench. but he only brought in 90 points, and I could pick up Zadorov for the same production for 4 mil cheaper. or look for a sleeper dman waiting to be picked up.

    Not too crazy about Talbot so him for sure. Losing Suter isn't that big of a deal since his value isn't proportionate to his cap hit. Like it's been said above, these moves give you some flexibility.
