It's fun reading the crazy ideas they have though. Like yesterday they mentioned Eichel should be on the move from Buffalo.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ON3M4N</b></div><div>So he's going to be to expensive for the Rangers, but Boston can sign him with guys like Krug, Chara, DeBrusk and other all needing new deals. He's not even need as your playing him on your 3rd pair.</div></div>

And I think we're looking at Backes coming off the books, and potentially Chara too depending on how this season ends for the Bruins. And me having him on the third pairing doesn't mean I feel he isn't needed here. I think having that puck moving defensemen on the right side is immensely important for the Bs. You could rotate him and Carlo as the games progress depending on the need of the team. Need offense? Deangelo gets more time to try and get the breakouts going. Need to shut them down? Carlo gets more time against the top players to limit chances. And I think you could see him driving PP2 for the Bs. He's more Krug-like than McAvoy and I think that could help turn PP2 into a more reliable scoring unit.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>PuckLuck_77</b></div><div>The issue is that the Kings would not accept Toffoli for Heinen, unless they're just hoping to flip him. Cost-control doesn't necessarily matter to the Kings. They're not in any sort of cap crunch. But the biggest issue is that Heinen would take up a spot at the expansion draft. What the Kings are looking for in return for Toffoli is some combination of expansion draft-exempt prospects or picks in the upcoming draft. Heinen is not either of those.

Lauzon+Shen+2nd for Martinez isn't bad on it's own. I'm still not a fan of the quality of players coming back, but it's closer than Heinen for Toffoli. Lauzon would be available for Seattle to pick, Shen wouldn't which is good. But Shen has 8 points in 30 games. Not exactly lighting the world on fire.

I still think the Kings say no. Just doesn't fit what they want, and they should be able to get more from selling the two separately to other teams.</div></div>

I think Heinen better fits the Kings than people think. He's a solid two-way middle six forward who is starting to regain his confidence in shooting.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>shmoeman</b></div><div>Why are we giving up assets for a dman we dont need?</div></div>

Martinez would be a good add for the Bs. Do we "need" him? No, but he solidifies that third pair and is a considerable upgrade from John Moore or Kevin Miller. And he's controlled through next season as well so you're not as vulnerable if Chara decides to retire.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>F50marco</b></div><div>The team can choose to either put him on IR or LTIR. LTIR means they can spend above the cap ceiling by his cap hit in order to replace him if they wanted to. IR there isn't any cap relief, the player just doesn't count as an active player on the roster anymore. So they can add another player to the roster and go over the 23 man limit. But once again, no cap relief. There is also some differences in how long the player must be "injured" for to apply for either category. If you have small injury that only has you miss 1-2 games or whatever, you can't go on LTIR because the player must not be able to enter the lineup for X amount of days to qualify for LTIR. Its so teams can't "cheat" the system. They still do however but its technically legal.

Ottawa has him on IR solely so that they can stay above the salary cap floor while not having to pay him. That's it.

Late edit: Ottawa purposefully doesn't want players that they have to pay actual dollars to. They actively want Gaborik because they aren't paying him but his cap is helping them reach the floor. So Backes being healthy enough to play at least a little forces them to have to pay him. They don't want that at. They'd prefer a 700K player instead of Backes so they can keep the salary overall lower.</div></div>

Appreciate the input, I didn't realize that's how the difference between IR and LTIR worked.

Bcarlo25- I know he struggled last year, but he's back on a 20 goal pace this year. Do you not think he has the skill set to gel and succeed with Krecji?
