UFA Day Thread

Recommended Posts

As is our usual custom, here's the thread to discuss the many signings around the league from today.  (And boy, have there been a ton of them already...)  Any Montreal signings/trades will get their own thread.

 

Biggest surprises so far - Perron only gets $4M from St. Louis while Stastny is Vegas-bound apparently.

Habs are rumoured to be the frontrunner for Xavier Ouellet, per Pierre LeBrun.

Most. Boring. UFA. Day. Ever.

 

You missed the fun this morning then.  I think I wrote about 15 different signing writeups on PHR in the span of two hours.  That was certainly not boring.

Stastny to Vegas on a 3-year deal for 6.5.

 

Gee...that wouldn't have been terrible as a patchwork signing :blink:

Despite the fourth liners and depth guys getting crazy deals (Roussel, Beagle, Reaves, etc), some of the bigger signings have been reasonable.  Philly got van Riemsdyk at 5/35 (less term for a bit more money), Stastny at 3/19.5 (again, less term for more money), and Perron at 4/16 are all not too shabby.  In particular, I wonder if van Riemsdyk's deal will impact Pacioretty's asking price.

Pacioretty is going to ask for 8+ a year

That's a hard ask with what van Riemsdyk just signed for though.

 

Bozak 3/15 to STL.  I wonder if that takes them out of the O'Reilly sweepstakes.

It's probably just a glitch since all of the reserve lists are currently being updated but Joel Armia - who was on Montreal's list two hours ago - is no longer on it.

Buffalo had to pay the bonus to O'Reilly. That means the asking price went up👍. I would stay away from O'Reilly. Wait it out 2 years and have Kotkaniemi and poehling as our top 2 centers.

The report was he asked 8x8 from the Kings and they wanted 6x6.

Buffalo can trade ROR before midnight and get out of paying him the bonus.

Plus, you can always include cash as part of the trade.  New team picks up half the bonus.  As long as the player gets paid, who cares who wrote the cheque.

Fucale goes to Vegas.  I thought he'd have to wait a while for a contract.

Ok ask yourself this question. If Toronto gets Tavares and we get O'Reilly. Do you think we're good enough to beat

Toronto 

Washington 

Tampa 

Pittsburgh 

In a 7 game playoff series? We're just not as deep as they are and i don't see us beating them. So i just don't think we should make that trade. I know anything could happen in a playoff run but we're not a deep team for a playoff run.
