<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CLR</b></div><div>Poehling is not nhl ready . Byron and Lekh are good players but 4th liners. So we need a top 9 LW considering we only have Tatar and Drouin. Considering we need 4lines to roll because we have no superstar , we indeed need a LW to play on the 2nd or 3rd line (depending where we slot Drouin)</div></div>
Indeed, I'd be okay pushing Lehkonen on the 4th (LW or RW, both Byron & Lehkonen play both sides), hence pushing Weal out of the line-up. That's fine, but there won't be lots of $$ remaining. for that 3rd line LW.
Anderson will get around 3-4 years at 3.5-3.7M$ AAV (let's assume 3.5M$). Habs have 10.86M$ of cap space with 18 players. So that's not 7.36M$ with 19 players. Switch Evans UP and Romanov down (he'll start in the AHL), that's + 0.144M$ so 7.5M$. Then, Mete will sign for 2 years at around 1.4M$, which makes it 6.1M$ with 20 players (still need 3). Add a guy like Hudon at 0,7M$ and C.Fleury at 0.77M$ : You'll have 4.6M$ of cap space with 22 players.
That LW would need to be in the 3 to 3.5M$ AAV range. Pretty sure that's what Dorion offered DuClair (he offered him a substential raise from 1.65M$...double? so 3.3M$ AAV?). He'll ask for more. Also, remember they'll have to re-up Gally, Tuna, KK & Danault at the end of the year AND Suzuki + Romanov at the end of the year after that. I think they'll keep the 4.63M$ of cap space, just to make sure they can sign everyone next summer (or should I say next fall?). If only to add a piece at the deadline or eat salary for a year and recoup assets at the same time.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MelonVK</b></div><div>I'm actually shocked about everyone's prediction that Lundqvist will earn 1m or just under that. How has he not been better than most FA goalies? Even if he's dropped off a bit from his own high standards?
Toffoli will get more years, I'd be surprised of Florida decided to spend another huge contract on RHD where they have Ekblad and Strålman earning a combined 13m, and also Weagar etc. on top of that.</div></div>
Lundqvist juste got bought out. No one is saying he's "worth" 1M$ a year (at least, I hope!), but it's what he'll accept since he still wants to play and still wants to win (that,s what he tweeted the next day he got bought out). If he want to win, there's no way he makes more than 1M$ this season. No competing team will offer him more. And frankly, at this stage of his career, having already earned 100M$ in NHL salary + all the advertisement money he made (probably at least the same amount as playing in the NHL), he's not looking to get paid. He wants a cup. PERIOD. He's already making 1.5M$ this season and the next, so add 1M$ to each year and I'm pretty sure he'll be OK with that ;)
For Toffoli, his inconsistency will hurt him a bit, trying to get that bigger AAV, imho. Also worth noting, in a "2-3 years of flat cap" world, teams will be reluctant to hand out bigger payday than players are worth.
For FLORIDA, I'm with you on that one, but can't see where Pietrangelo could fit...Stralman could be bought out...we'll see! Where else you think he could realisticaly sign?
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Lenny7</b></div><div>So, for Laine, you're giving up:
-Overpaid dman, that still has upside but hasn't shown it in a couple of years.
-Decent prospect that was alright in his first pro season.
-Good prospect that hasn't played in over a year, and has a pretty big question mark hanging over him.
-2nd round pick.
IMO, you've gotta give up something that you don't want to give up when you're getting a talent like Laine. Winnipeg has absolutely no reason to, and definitely shouldn't even think about trading him for question marks.</div></div>
Totally agree with you there. I could see a trade between WPG & PHI going down like this : Laine + WIN's 3rd round pick (2021) to PHI / P.Myers + M.Frost + PHI's 1st round pick (2020).
It's fair value on both sides. PHI lose a guy they don't want to in Myers, which needs to happen to get a high end guy like Laine. Still, I don't think WIN does this perticular trade, considering they want a 2nd line C at least for Laine...even PHI hesitate, since they'll be in cap hell next season (2021-2022) trying to resign Hart, Laine, Sanheim, Niskanen, Laughton...

There's no signs showing us that Marner will be a bust.
if we're going be stats. Marner fits in well with right wingers 6.7m Pasterak and 7.5m Taresenko assuming Marner goes about 25/50 for75 points. an agent will bring in Draisaitl comparison of course at 8.5m,,,but that isn't the norm. then Dubas counters with hart candidate winger marchand at 6.1m
Marchand became the players he is (offensively) at 28 years of age...Marner is at 20 years of age...apples and oranges
Signing an 8 years contract at age 28 (thru age 36) is sure to see the AAV drop significantly in the latter years of it. If you sign it at age 21, though, you lock all the prime years of the player, which cost a lot and the AAV doesn't drop because of the final 2-3 years...
You're not comparing close to the same situation.
After taking a closer look, J.Gaudreau is a player that fits pretty well the situation of Marner, except he was 2 years older when signing his contract, wasn't a top5 overall picks (like it or not, it still matters for the contract after the ELC), & surely had less GP than Marner when signing his contract (160 for J.G. & 159 for M.M. right now).
So Marner will be compared to Gaudreau 9.25% cap and might get a bit more (9.5-9.6%?). All in all, 9.5% cap amounts to 7.55M$ in '18-'19 or 7.88M$ in '19-'20 (cap at 83M$). So maybe 8 years at 7.75M$ is what he ends up getting.
