    Overpaying for Ovy

    Disclaimer: Before reading this, I understand that I am overpaying. The question is, am I getting robbed or just the necessary evil of dealing for the best player in the game.

    The league is 16 teams and has a salary cap of 60$ Million with Salaries following NHL Salaries. There are weekly roster changes so having a deep bench is not really a concern. Here is the trade offer I have on the table for Ovechkin.

    CAKE trades Patrick O'Sullivan, Edm C to Amuk $2,387,500
    CAKE trades Alex Goligoski, Pit D to Amuk $1,250,000

    CAKE trades Daniel Sedin*, Van LW to Amuk $6,100,000
    CAKE trades Nazem Kadri, Tor C to Amuk $900,000
    CAKE trades Semyon Varlamov, Was G to Amuk $850,000
