<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>NHLfan10506</b></div><div>These are comps. Not asking prices. (It says it there in the title). They are intended to give a range of prices that could mimic a market. In other words, these are not the answer to “what do we need to pay” but are more an answer to “what could other teams be paying”. Comps. Like when you buy a house.

So for instance, if you are the GM of a team in need of a player like Severson, and you want to know what a competitive bid would look like, you’d want your AGM to assemble a list of comps. It doesn’t mean all those teams are bidding. And since players aren’t really sold via auction, there is no market information about bid vs ask prices. So your AGM makes up a list like this. And if it’s accurate, you’d have a rough idea of what type of offers Tom Fitzgerald is receiving from your competition. Some good, some bad.

Does that make sense?</div></div>

These are not comps, like buying a house, you're comparing a basement condo on skid row to prime San Fran real estate.

Guhle and Matheson &gt; Wishart and Carle

Zaitsev and Bernad-Docker &gt; Moore and Vaakanainen

Your 1st rd picks are coming from teams that would be significantly worse than the respective picks in the comps, so not factoring in that automatic jump of 5-10 spots in the first round is an oversight.

Then there's the comparing of Severson, a one dimensional RD to Boyle, Campbell, Faulk, and Lindholm, all who bring so much more than offense from the right side.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MatthewsFan</b></div><div>Do yourself a favor and at least look at things before you type.

BOS currently has waived Mike Rielly (3,000,000), Nick Foligno (3,800,000) and Chris Wagner (1,350,000) in the minors (thats a little over 8mil in salary just sitting in the minors lol) I can only imagine what you'd be saying if Kyle Dubas had that much salary buried in the minors.

They just signed Stralman for 1 year a 1mil. So now once Marchard and McAvoy are healthy will still need to waive another player and have a 22 man roster.

And yes, TBL is taking advantage of having Seabrook on LTIR.


It is absolutely less than ideal to have 21 man roster (which the Leafs can have starting Thursday) and a roster decision will have to be made once Liljgren is healthy, but again, this is not just a Leafs issue. lol</div></div>

who cares what Boston waived, I don't care about billionaires money being spent.

Boston: They have a 20 man roster, at 400k under the cap... which includes Marchand and McAvoy.... so when they are back, they have a 22 man roster WITH buried penalties.

Tampa : They have a 20 man roster, right at the cap after LTIR Seabrook, with Cole potentially getting his contract annulled, and Cirelli and Bogosian on IR.... so, when they are back, (assuming Cole too), they have a 22 or 23 man roster below the cap

Toronto: They have a 20 man roster, are $2.1M over the cap, LTIR Lil &amp; Benn bring them under the cap (just barely).... if either of them come back, Toronto has to shed cap hits and move a roster player (Engvall or Kerfoot most likely, giving them room a player and an ELC)....

The fact that you can't see this simple fact that your homerism is showing.

To reiterate Toronto is the only team that cannot ice a 21, 22, or 23 man roster without having to shed a roster player to make room.

No other team has to move someone to play a 21-22-23 man roster.

So, again, for your viewing pleasure, and hopefully you can understand it this time, Yes, it is solely a leafs issue to be this terrible at cap management, Yes they are the only team that has this predicament.

</div>

But sure, this is just a Leaf issue lol</div></div>

it is just a leafs issue... Boston and Tampa have both had longer playoff runs than the leafs, so, while they're up against the ceiling, it works.

Toronto, not so much.

Tampa currently has $3M of Cole still on their books, he may have his contract annulled freeing up room, to which, they'll likely call up a player or two (Myers and a forward)

The point is, a 20 man roster isn't ideal.... 2 guys get the flu and you're running an 18 man roster.... one goalie gets sick, and you're running without a backup.

And again, Boston has McAvoy on LTIR, so they can easily call up 1-2 people to fill in, there's no rush for them though, and Marchand coming back when he does puts them up to 21

Toronto doesn't have anyone on IR that is counting against the cap (Cirelli and Marchand), and eventually filling the roster spot.

So, yeah, it's a Leafs issue... as they will be the only team with a 20 man roster for the full season because of horrible cap management.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Poehling</b></div><div>Drouin, Dadonov &amp; Hoffman showed they can help a team to tank, not the other way around. They are really bad right now, they have to turn their game around big time for a team to consider them helping</div></div>

by your logic Kane and Toews showed they can help a team to tank too, therefore they're really bad right now.

losing your best goalie and your best defenseman, then getting the most man games lost in the NHL made for a perfect storm of garbage last season, so gauging a players capability based on that is ridiculous, and even at that, Dadonov wasn't with Montreal.... and Drouin still put up 20 points in 34 games, a 50 point pace on said dumpster fire team.

Dadonov up until last season, was still a 45 point depth forward, with playmaking ability, and at $2.5M with salary retention is likely a better contract or option than most teams have at that same salary.

Same applies to Drouin (though risk with mental issues are present).

I never mentioned Hoffman, he was a disaster before being signed, demonstrated in Florida that he was one dimensional and needed a team to carry him.

The question isn't "are they first line players" or "are they worth $5M"... the question is "can they make a team better respective to fitting them under a tight cap".... and with salary retention, on Dadonov and Drouin, the answer is most likely a yes, you're almost acting like they're 12 point guys through a regular season, and again, at $2.5M what would you expect, Foegele? Namestnikov? Engvall? Dickinson? arguably all worse at similar cap hits.

Edit: Jfresh war% for Dadonov last season was 77%, with his defence being at a career high.
