Only MB would try to scalp off old antiques.
That one is funny , What kind of return is MB actually expecting ??
It's free to try but he will have nothing. My guess is Streit is on waivers tomorrow and send down to Laval on saturday noon. Schlemko will be reactivated from IR and will play vs Leafs.
Streit will not report with Laval and will return finish his career in Europe.
If Streit goes out in the next few days, he will have cost $30,108 (more or less) in cap space.... what a total waste of space !
I don't see him playing in the AHL so the contract will be terminated.
The team will only get cap relief if the player agrees to the move, not sure if they'll get any cap relief at all if he refuses to report.
Yes they will. Streit will do like Semin did.
In all seriousness, if anyone wanted a bottom pairing guy or depth defenceman they know they can get one from Vegas. They're dying to make a trade for anything. For the same low price of practicallynothing you could get a guy who can still play in the NHL instead of Streit (who can't).
A day earlier than I thought... but here we go.
Was there ever any doubt about this outcome
The audacity of picking up a 40 year old off the free agent scrap heap for league minimum and then trying to trade him for value 2 months later is astounding.
I feel kind of bad for Streit. Signing him was a very puzzling move to begin with, and actively trying to get rid of him so soon looks bad on management.
On NHL 18, you'd loose a phone for this
Are you kidding? After the whole Subban incident Bergevin's been using carrier pigeons to communicate with other GMs.
All I'm thinking of...
He's on a 35+ contract, Habs won't get cap relief in any way outside of a trade.
Just put him on unconditional waivers, pay the man his salary and wish him well in retirement.
Couldn't even get a 1st
1 million in dead cap space money that he could have used on Markov. Long live Bergevin.....
If no one claims him off waivers, perhaps they will loan him out to some Swiss team. Be stunned if a guy like Mark Streit reported to the AHL at this point in his career.
I think they just terminate his contract like it was done with Semin couple years ago.
Please educate yourself before calling out others.
Streit is on an over 35 contract. Habs get zero cap relief from waivers. So yes, almost 1 million in wasted cap space on a signing that everyone knew was garbage.
Edit: Wingsfan4life beat me to it.
You guys have a short memory. Remember Semin ? He went on normal waivers, nobody claimed him. The day after, he went on uncondionnal waivers to terminate his contract (for that you need mutual agreement).
Montreal needs a spot on the 23 men roster on saturday. That's 2 days, why put Streit on normal waivers right now, you think ? To be able to put him on waivers again tomorrow in time to terminate his contract on saturday and reactivate Schlemko.
Cap space isn't a problem it's the veteran contract in Laval (habs are at the limit).
No he is not.
If a player signs a multi-year contract ...
Semin wasn't on a 35+ contract. Streit is. When you turn 35, contract flexibility really decreases. That's the difference here. Habs won't get any cap relief unless they can trade the contract, which they won't be able to.
That's an odd stipulation. Nevertheless, I stand corrected. Carry on gents.
