So.....are we still going to pursue Carl Nicks??
And there you have it, we are players in free agency. Dominik was right, we are gonna be active. Now all we need to do is re-sign Barth and a couple of average players from other teams and he will have kept his word.

Zuttah can move to C and free up room for Nicks.
Good. Slide him to center, cut Faine, and sign Nicks, 12:01 March 13th.
My thinking exactly. He is scheduled to make $5.925 million in 2012 and $7 million in 2013 while his cap value is $7.925 million in 2012 and $9 million in 2013. We could pay Nicks $8-$10 million per season and the cash outlay per season (after paying his large signing bonus) would only be an incremental $2- $3 million. Assuming a $21 million signing bonus ($1 million more than Logan Mankins), and $59 million over 7 years (vs. 51 million over 6 years for Mankins), his cap value, would be less than what Faine's cap value would be in 2013 and less than $1 million more than what he counts for in 2012. Cutting Faine would free up $1.925 million in cap value, though more cap space is not what we need. In terms of cash outlay for the Glazers, in my scenario it would cost $22-$29 million for Nicks in year 1 versus the $5.925 million in savings so $16-$23 million of cash from the Glazer's pockets to sign him. If they can get him for a lower signing bonus than $21 million than that cash outlay would diminish.
