CAYDEN PRIMEAU? HOW DO WE HAVE CAP SPACE FOR THIS? HE HASN’T EVEN PLAYED A GAME.


Bergevin buttered us up with the Toffoli signing so we wouldn't be mad. It didn't work. PRIMEAU! CAP SPACE!

They already had Lindgren to expose as an RFA.

I do agree that Allen becomes appealing for Seattle. Hopefully, they take the bait and Bergy keeps his depth elsewhere.

Cap will be thight next year. I wonder if Bergy isn't spending to leave juuuuust enough to sign Danault and Gally to his determined amount (12M total IMO) .


Lindgren is a UFA, although McNiven can be exposed as an RFA.

You might want to check the numbers on that one....not too mention 800k for an ahl bound goalie


Regardless where he ends up, Toronto is always in need of goalies when one of theirs goes down every season. And that Allen contract is a huge overpayment.

Aaron Dell who’s 2x the backup goalie Allen is just signed in Toronto for 800k. This is a hefty dollar amount for a guy who will play 20 games


Dell is nowhere near as good as Allen.

I bet Price goes to Seattle and Allen and Primeau is the goalie setup after.

yes but if you think about it would Seattle have taken Lindgren no. Allen is a better target and has proven he is still a capable goalie. This way seattle is going to chose Allen over one of the forwards or Dman.

IDK what’s happening. I’m not upset at this, but why do this right now? Wouldn’t it be better to see the market next year and see if Primeau makes the jump in the upcoming season?

Who are the 8 better backups?


Are you just blind or dumb?

Rantta, Rittich, Reimer, Francouz, Korposalo, Khudobin, Rinne, Fleury, Crawford, Nilsson, Campbell, Holtby... should I keep going or is that enough to satisfy your stupid comment

Primeau will be ready? Didn't know you KNEW the projection of players. Regardless, Allen is a very good backup in the meantime

I think it is closer than you think and tbh I would rather have the weaker guy who costs 4 mill less

Alright, now what about all of these goalies make them better than Allen?

So now they have 13.37M tied up in net after next season. That’s....not good spending.

I doubt it. One of our defensemen would be a better choice for Seattle. Plus they’ll have a tonne of goalies to choose from.


He probably won't be selected, but some goalies will and these teams will be in need for a new one. So they can trade him. The contracts seems ok, it's short term and reasonable AAV. Easy to trade.

Dell is 100x better and more consistent than Allen. Even on a worse Defensive team. You’re smoking something

**** off. He is ready already and is getting held back for literally no good reason. Allen is a fine backup but costs too much compared to other guys. I am fine with spending that $ on a backup but the value to dollar is horrible compared to someone like per say greiss
