We won't really have an idea on where we stand cap wise until the players union releases numbers, and even then it's only an educated guess as the salary numbers aren't 100% accurate. The first thing, basically it means that HGPs can make more money but still not take a senior roster spot. It's not really surprising that KC isn't filling roster spots 19 and 20, that's allowed under MLS rules. If you don't fill roster spots 19 and 20 you're allowed to spread the salary budget among the other 18 players on the roster. We've regularly not filled all 20 senior roster spots so that we can spread the salary budget out among fewer players. Yes the roster can still be fluid until the transfer window closes in May. Yesterday was the compliance deadline, meaning teams had to be compliant with all roster rules and with any subsequent roster moves they have to stay compliant with the rules.
