  1. Ya, I figured they would have done a Smith buyout and tried to trade Shattenkirk at half salary retained. The 2nd year of the Shattenkirk buyout is beyond painful.
  2. Tampa trades Callahan and a 5th to Ottawa for Condon and a 6th. The market for cap dumps really took a downturn after the Leafs had to part with a 1st to get rid of Marleau.
  3. An update on some of the teams in cap trouble... Rangers: Assuming they bury Beleskey and demote Hajek to the minors, the Rangers are currently over the cap by ~2 million and still have Deangelo and Lemieux to sign. That Dan Girardi buyout has bitten them harder than they probably expected it would. They'd love to get rid of Brendan Smith (2 years, $4 350 000, m-ntc) and Marc Staal (2 years, $5 700 000, nmc), but I expect they'll need to trade 1 of Shattenkirk, Namestikov, or Kreider this summer to make their cap work. Capitals: They need to drop ~1.4 million in cap before the season starts. Assuming their core is untouchable and their recent free agent signings won't be traded, I wonder if Eller is the odd man out here? Flames: Have ~6.3 million to sign Tkachuk and Mangiapane. They might buy out Stone, but they could need a few more dollars freed up. Canucks: With Eriksson and Fantenberg buried in the AHL they have ~7 million to sign Boeser and Goldobin. They were hurting for cap space even before the Luongo cap recapture.
  4. I still think there is a 4th line NHLer there, but dude is gonna need a perfect season to get there.
  5. ... to get the cap space to sign the top UFA centreman? At least try to give the full story, Don.
  6. Bergevin was in on Lucic as a free agent, so there is always gonna be some underlying fear that he might circle back and try to polish that turd.
  7. It is possible to be a fan of those deals AND be thankful Bergevin didn't do one of them for Lucic.
  8. More of these type of conditions please. It's ridiculous and I love it.
  9. Which part of this deal seems like a Bergevin trade?
  10. He lists Henrikson, Koberstein, Dichow, Ruscheinski as the ones who don't meet the viewing requirement. None of them would be in the top 20 anyway.
  11. http://www.habsworld.net/2019/07/michael-mccarrons-qualifying-offer-expires/ As per the final paragraph of the article, McCarron MUST be trying for more AHL money, right? I appreciate an athlete with the confidence/belief that they're a top talent, but two years in a row McCarron and his agent have played hard ball in negotiations and it's starting to come across as deluded.
  12. Rangers: They'll stash Beleskey in the minors, but they could still trade Kreider. I guess it would be nice to have him run into goalies opposite to Price. Flames: Gotta think they'd like to trade Frolik out. Brodie was a part of the Kadri deal that Nazem nixed. And of course... The Real Deal. Stars: Doubt they want Hanzal on the team anymore, but I don't know what they have to give up to get him off the team. Canucks: Eriksson wants out but is weilding his NTC. Benning has threatened him to play ball or go to the AHL. I can't imagine who they have lined up for that deal. Penguins: I reckon they're not attached to Bjustad. Someone might want him. Golden Knights: It's gotta be Ryan Reaves, right? Unless Vegas is going to fall into the "heavy won the cup" trap. Coyotes: They can put Hossa on LTIR. They can still add depth pieces without moving anyone out. I'll add the Bruins as a team in need. 8 million is not enough to sign McAvoy and Carlo. They'd probably give up quite a bit to get rid of Backes.
  13. Habsworld loves to rip on management. We just generally like to do it based on reality.
  14. I don't see it. Tatar - Danault - Gallagher Drouin - Domi - Byron Lehkonen - Kotkaniemi - Armia Cousins - Thompson - Weal Poehling with 4th line minutes isn't worth it, and unless Suzuki outplays Byron or Armia at wing in training camp then he's also better off in Laval playing in the top 6.
  15. Higher cap hit than I expected. Thought he had less negotiating power than Armia, but the Habs haven't exactly been coy about how much they love Lehk.
  16. The term also gives Bergevin a little bit of leeway for the expansion draft.
  17. Happy with the deal. On all my capfriendly lineup checks I had Armia at 2.5 but for a longer term.
  18. Is this the weak-ass narrative being peddled? Jesus christ.
  19. If Lindgren clears waivers would Primeau play in the ECHL?
  20. He has to play there for 5 seasons. Do you expect him to publicly state "I really didn't want to come back here. They are basically holding me hostage until I can get out in 5 years. Also, to the fans of Carolina... #### you."?
