If Dubois were traded or put on waivers and claimed by another team, could we use his $ 5 M salary plus the $ 7.7 M cap space to sign Copp, Pionk and Stanley ?

Also, if we sign Pionk and Stanley, we would have six solid defencemen, Morrssey, Schmidt, Piont, Dillon, Demelo and Stanley, so could we trade or waive Beaulieu ?

Jet's are not trading Dubois or sending him to the Moose. Not happening.

Okay, if we keep Dubois, here's another suggestion.

We have $ 7.7 M in cap space to sign Copp, Pionk and Stanley.

If we waive Beaulieu, we can free up $ 1.25 M in cap space, so we would have $ 8.95 M to work with.

It appears that Copp's cap hit was $ 2.28 M last season, Pionk was $ 3 M, and Stanley was $ 863 K, totaling $ 6.14 M.

https://www.capfriendly.com/players/andrew-copp
https://www.capfriendly.com/players/neal-pionk
https://www.capfriendly.com/players/logan-stanley

It seems we could afford to give these three players raises totaling $ 2.8 M.

Could we try to offer $ 3.25 M to Copp match Lowry's salary, $ 1.25 M to Stanley to match Beulieu's salary, and $ 4.45 M to Pionk ?

Is the 7.7M in cap space including the 6.14 already in the Copp, Pionk and Stanley contracts?  Does it include the Little deal, which will be LTIR?

I have great faith that Chevy will get the three under contract and under the cap....

It appears that we have signed Riley Nash for a one year $ 750 K deal.

https://www.capfriendly.com/players/riley-nash

This seems to have reduced the cap space from  $ 7.7 M to $6,965,355.

Is Nash possibly a replacement for Perreault ?

It appears that our cap space is now  $6,965,355

https://www.capfriendly.com/teams/jets

We probably need about $ 8.5 M to sign Copp, Pionk and Stanley. ($ 3.25 M for Copp, $ 4.5 M for Pionk, and $ 1.25 M for Stanley).

However, once do we sign them, our top six defencemen would be Morrissey, Schmidt, Pionk, Dillon, Demelo and Stanley.

It seems that Demelo would no longer be a necessity, but a luxury.

As a result, could our GM be cooking up some deals to move Demelo, and perhaps Beaulieu in order to fit Copp, Pionk and Stanley under the cap ?

The only problem may be that Demelo seems to have a modified no trade cause, so it would be interesting to know what teams are on his trade and/or no-trade lists.

Perhaps the extra cap money could be used to sign some fourth liners on offence, a sixth defenceman, and a backup goaltender.

Please don't be offended ....... but your valuation of Copp & Pionk are quite off, IMHO. 
Pionk was definitley our Dman MVP,  Copp had another career year. So in comparison to others in the league, Chevy will need to pay a min. of $9.7 - $10. to get both

Copp had a very good first half of the season, but he really tailed off late in the season.

That's what the guy across from Copp at he arbitration table will say, anyway.

Agree that he did indeed tail off

Stanley signed a very ?friendly ? contract.
Chevy still needs to dump Niku & Beaulieu?s contract to hav a sniff at wrapping up Copp & Pionk

Copp was like a ghost in the playoff. 2A, -3. I was shocked to see that stat. Of course Montreal B slapped us and shut us down and no one scored.

$900K for Stanley is a steal not a deal.
