Arizona takes on $12 million in cap for 1 year. They also save $42 million in cap over 6 years. After Garland signs, this year’s cap hits should probably balance out.
Short-term I like this deal for the Canucks. The problem is, it’s bad long-term, this really hurts their cup chances at any point in the future. This is a loss for the Canucks, because they aren’t a contender this season. This is almost certainly a move made because Jim Benning is trying to keep his job. Either that or he’s just incompetent.
This is an absolute win for the Yotes. OEL is good just to get off the books, no matter the return. The cap dumps are just one year, so they’re clearing a bunch of cap space in subsequent years. And Garland for 9th overall & a 2nd is a win for Arizona.
