    How do you know what the cap hit would be?

    Only reason i listed Grimes was because he was out for the whole season with an injury. I thought maybe that would make him cheaper

    Yeah, me too. I mean I understand the basic premise but is there even detailed contract info out there to even calculate cap hits?

    Where do you get this from?

    Both Boley and Webster are on the last year of long deals, and I don't believe they've restructured at all during that time. Usually guys ont he last year of their deals you get the most cap relief for.

    Just for the record, I'm not for cutting Boley, he's played very well for us. Webster will need to be worked on because he has a huge cap number this year after sub par play.

    Sort of like his play this year

    He has already made it clear he was a long deal HERE and will consider a hometown discount.

    it makes it very difficult for us rear-seat GMs to make our perfect decisions while lacking this info...

    Cutting Webster even if it does not saving money makes sense. A rookie can play better or just as worse with less money. Heck, anyone from the stands can put more effort than Webster.
