    The Ferland signing where only Vancouver was offering a four year pact is mindful of the Backes deal where Saint Louis was offering four and Sweeney gave him five.

    Can't see McAvoy getting up to 7 when he isn't eligible for an offersheet and he's still 2 years from arbitration. They'll do what they did with Pastrnak and leverage these no-option RFA years to drop the AAV on a longer deal. Something like 2 years of leveraging him into like $3.5M/per Krug-like deals, then a couple arbitration years at something like $7.5M/per, then a couple of UFA years at like $9M/per -- average it out to something like $6.5M over 6 years. Not sure when he even becomes UFA but obviously those are the years he and the Bruins can play with a bit to balance it out.

    Surprised Vancouver is getting so close to the cap with Boeser unsigned. I wonder who they plan on moving out.

    Need to move out probably at least 3 million to sign Boeser and have a small cushion.

    I think last I checked they’re at like 15 or 16 roster forwards as well. Something’s brewing in the PNW

    According to reports, Benning is getting a lot of calls on Jake Virtanen.

    Unfortunately for them, that doesn't save them much money. Unless he's packaged with one of their 3million+ salaried middling forwards

    Loui Eriksson, no? I know that there's speculation that he wants out and the known fact that he and Green don't see eye to eye.

    Canucks will have to sweeten a deal pretty substantially I would think to move that 6 mil cap hit over the next three years.

    Could you imagine tying up 6 million in a player that is doing nothing for you?

    Was surprised to see Boeser point were in line with Timo. Then I looked at the P/GP and that's where it all changed lol. Boeser actually has a better P/GP than Liane does and is right behind Senko. Would love to pry him away from VAN, but I imagine the asking price starts at McAvoy or Carlo

    makes sense, people have been speculating Lucic wants to go home to BC for years.

    Why do I get a weird feeling that Loui w/ McDavid would be actually pretty good.

    @Alicat mentioned this in the last thread, but McAvoy's agent (Michael Curran) works for Bobby Orr's agency. This is noteworthy for two reasons. Orr's relationship with the Bruins is obviously one thing. The second is that, from my limited research, Curran is also Kevin Labanc's agent. He just signed an unbelievably team friendly deal with San Jose (seriously, there's something fishy about it).

    Now most agents will probably tell you that they work for the player, and, in the end, it's the players decision about who/what they sign for. However, I think some probably take that to heart more than others. Not that the same thing will happen with McAvoy, but it's something to think about as we wait for him to sign.

    Orr is a manager I respect. If Curran is under his umbrella then any concern over McAvoy signing can be put to rest. Given what Charlie said of the team during the playoffs in his locker room interviews there is nowhere else he would rather be than in Boston with his teammates.

    I honestly am not worried about McAvoy and Carlo getting signed. Though I am surprised it hasent happened already. I wonder if Sweeney has some irons in the proverbial fire that he is waiting on before the pieces fall into place. Knowing the long term health of his injured list I'm sure is key.

    Maybe they already have a deal in place and it's a combination of Sweeney not wanting to close the deal yet for business reasons and ironing out details.
