<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>budgeteam</b></div><div>LTIR increases the cap ceiling for the team by the amount they are over by when they place the player on LTIR.

Meaning, the Lightning want to get as close to 6.875M (Seabrook's cap hit) over the cap before they place him on LTIR.

If they do not get a full 6.875M over the cap, they effectively lose that space.

Sending down Myers and signing this contract were both paper transactions to get Tampa 6.875M over the cap on day one of the season. Once their roster is set, they will send down Labrie, and recall Myers. Once LTIR is set, their new cap ceiling remains in place even if the move non-LTIR players. That's why you sometimes see teams when setting their opening roster send players who made their team down and recall players who didn't. This is a more extreme version of that.

That is why Labrie was signed to such a specific AAV. The performance bonus is not counted toward his AAV for LTIR purposes, and he is probably not in the plans to play in the NHL. In the unlikely chance be hits the bonus, the 500k cap can be deferred to next season.

If someone wants to inflict maximum chaos on Tampa, they could claim Myers. It would throw off Tampa's LTIR ceiling structure. Additionally, it looks like Ian Cole may not play anytime soon, and possible may not play ever again if the grooming allegations are proven true. It seems like the Cole stuff happened after Myers was waived. Tampa likely expected that no one would claim Myers because of his inflated real money salary this season. Maybe the Cole stuff will change that if a team with cap space sees an opportunity to extort Tampa for a pick by claiming Myers.</div></div>

Just wanted to add one thing to this excellent summary: The performance bonuses are there to give Tampa a PB "cushion" for the year. That 500k PB becomes their season opening PB amount, meaning that if they recall a player on an ELC with PBs less than that amount, it doesn't count against the cap. Without that cushion, a team has to add a player's PB to their cap hit when recalling a player under LTIR.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>budgeteam</b></div><div>The perception on Hall had taken a nose dive by the time he hit free agency.

The pandemic hurt everybody who was a UFA, but if he was perceived as a superstar, someone would have found a way to give him a big 7 year 60-70 million dollar contract. Which is what Vegas did for Pietrangelo, and Vegas was one of the teams with the least cap flexibility in the league.

It's similar to Gaudreau this year. We're Gaudreau's options more limited due to the cap that they would otherwise be if we were at 90-100 million for the cap? Yes, of course. But Gaudreau is seen as a superstar so more than one team made a play for him at superstar money.

Hall and Klingberg weren't seen as superstars anymore. Hall hit free agency 2 years too late, and it likely cost him 10s of millions of dollars since he effectively got 6.4M over 5 seasons when he probably expected at worst 8M x 7 and at best 11.5 x 7 ala Panarin.

Both are seen as top 6/top 4 but peaked at the wrong time to cash in as a UFA, and signed a 1 year deal in hopes of having a bounce back season. Odds are, whatever Klingberg signs for next year will be worse than what he could have got long term from Dallas or this off season.</div></div>

Both parts are true. People thought Hall and Pietro were both going to get 10-11 for 7-8 years. Hall's value dropped, Pietro's didn't. Hall got 8 mil x1 year and Pietro got 8.8*7.

Without the pandemic Pietro would have gotten another mil. Hall it's hard to say, but I think both his play and the pandemic contributed
