Sharks have bonus overage of $545K

More gold from David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News this afternoon. According to the Sharks beat writer, the team paid bonuses totaling approximately $545,000 to Logan Couture and Jamie McGinn last season. Because of this, coupled with the fact that San Jose was right at the cap, that money will count against the team this season. This means that Doug Wilson will have a cap of $63.75MM to work with for the upcoming year. That overage is far less than it could have been, but it looks like the "Disappearing Huskins" magic trick pulled by Doug Wilson at the end of last season kept the team compliant. For all the want-to-be GM's out there, here are some numbers to work with. Cap Space under Current Roster Situation (12 F, 8D (Including Moore and Braun) 2G): $4.4675MM Cap Space with 7D (Including Braun): $4.98MM Cap Space with no Scratches: $5.84MM The Sharks may be done this offseason, but they have more space to make a move going into the year than they have in any of the previous since the lockout.
