    Clearing space for Aho. They offered him $6M/yr for 8 years (which is embarrassing). It's a crap trade for Carolina and a good one for Chicago.

    This really should be set before the draft.

    So here is my out there guess for how the top 10 shakes out: 1. Hughes 2. Kakko 3. Turcotte 4. Dach 5 Byram 6 Zegras 7 Caufield 8 Cozens (vomit) 9 Boldy 10 Krebs

    Vegas. Sharks. Lightning. Leafs. Bolts. Jets too maybe. Any team with decent cap space is going to get some real value if they weaponize it. I also think we'll see a fair few buyouts that weren't expected too.

    Yeah it seems like a way out of the a bad contract of a player who won't perform, but I think both teams/owners and players are good with this. Doesn't inhibit teams from signing players to long deals and teams can do it without worrying an aging player is going to be a cap constraint in the long run. The biggest negative in all this is the players health long term, but that's up to the player in the end.

    So my theory with this, is that teams clear a lot of players to continue playing with injuries. Like they'll tell players to continue playing, often through injuries/pain etc., and once it becomes too much, they'll LTIR so then they still get the money but the team gets the cap space.

    Buyer beware for all potential teams. Good luck to the kid.

    No I get it from a Flyers perspective, but if you're tying up $7M/yr to a sub-50 point forward, that's going to be an albatross going forward. If anyone can get him to produce more however, I reckon it's AV.

    It sounds like Lou screwed the pooch with regards to Marner it seems. Got him to sign his ELC without a signing bonus and since then Marner and his agents have been peeved. So I could see them holding out until they got the contract they want.

    Pierre McGuire said a team in the top 10 sent 4 front office personnel to meet with G Spencer Knight this past week. Other rumors have linked LA Kings with Knight. So do you take arguably the best goalie prospect since Price in the top 10? Especially with how goalies bust.

    Unfortunately they won't trade him. Instead they'll gut their depth and tie up $40M+ to 4 forwards. That D is going to be horrendous next season as it stands.

    Everyone ready to see the Leafs screw up their cap this summer? Also, Philly better hope Hayes has one more gear in terms of offense. The guy broke 50 points once and if you're giving him term and AAV, you had better hope he can bring it. Duchene is gonna get 9-10M easily.

    Yeah not a fan of this one. I liked Braun, especially when he was paired with Vlasic when they were both younger, but he's slowing down a lot. I hope you guys don't move Ghost for offensive help, because I can't help feel you guys will be selling low. Also saw Bobby Mac reporting signing Hayes might cost you guys closer to $7M AAV than $6M.
