Giving Paul $4M is a big mistake.</div></div>
Totally agree. I'd need to see a longer track record of success before I'm comfortable with that contract. Could end up being a costly mistake.
Holl is meh, but I'd potentially be ok depending on the price.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>dannibalcorpse</b></div><div>One thought I had to this though - wouldn't moving Girard's $5M make it much easier to keep Toews around? Byram goes RFA after next season, so you'll be able to lock in his number at whatever bridge or long-term deal you get him at. Plus Erik Johnson's deal falls off after next season; while you need to replace him, obviously, you're either going to be spending all of his $6M on a major upgrade(good problem) or you'll be bringing in a younger, more affordable guy. I think Toews signs for $8M max (Makar did them a favor by taking $9M and making an unofficial cap for the rest of the D corps) and with Girard's deal off the books you shouldn't have a terrible time signing him.</div></div>
They'll need to pay MacKinnon, Byram, and Newhook, with MacKinnon obviously being the big one (that's where the Erik Johnson money goes). I think Toews is going to be a luxury they likely can't afford once his current contract ends.
The team is also heavily built around quick transition, beginning with their defensemen, and Girard is a huge part of that. I believe they value him more than many others think they do. Just my opinion though, and I'm just some guy.
