    Lineup is the best thats possible without Zuccarello and Bishop imho.

    Just get it done tonight in front of the homecrowd. Flyers have nothing to play for and have been just eliminated a couple of days ago. Gotta take advantage of that especially with Cam Talbot in net.

    I mean that not taking a penalty thing is good especially since he's now drawing a penalty a game as well.

    Yeah let's be honest - it could be going worse for Val but he has embraced a new role and been effective at his job. Still wish he could somehow find a way to chip in some goals obviously. Even just 1 to end the season could be massive for his confidence going forward if he doesn't get bought out this season.

    Val is playing at an elite level this season and shattering records is what I got from this :sarcasm:

    Exactly that would be dumb. Only reason Niemi was bought out with one year remaining was him beeing on the roster with Kari would hurt the team and teams don't carry more than two goalies . Val will be traded or on the roster next season . If he sucks you can just waive him and be done with it for some savings if nobody picks him up . No reason to buy out a forward or defenseman with one year remaining . Not like they need the capspace and it takes up capspace for an extra year. Similarly Hanzal won't be bought out. We don't need the capspace that badly and having a buy out on the cap the next year for no reason makes zero sense.

    Val's under 26 ... his buyout would cost 1/3rd spread over two years not 2/3rds. Nill rarely gives up on anyone, but financially, buying out Val would open up significant cap space next year with a nominal hit the following year. Whether they should or not is fine to debate, but it is far from an unreasonable option.

    Next season's cap hit would be $700,000 with a savings of $2,250,000. His cap hit the following year would only be $450,000.

    I'm really happy that Nuke has played better lately and he seems like he could be useful playing 4th line minutes in the playoffs. That said, it's a no brainer to buy him out if you have designs on spending in free agency on a scorer and hopefully a defenseman. Esa is pushing his next contract closer to if not over $5 million with his career year. A Top 6 Scorer is going to cost $5 to $6 million on the low end. Another defenseman would cost $4 to $6 million. That's $14 to $17 million for 3 players. Projected cap next year is $83 million giving Dallas about $21.5 million in space. That leaves $4.5 million to $7.5 million remaining in space for Mattias Janmark ($2.3 million QO ... likely won't get more), Jason Dickinson (approximately $920K QO .... probably gets around $1.5 to $2 million on a 2 year deal), and Brett Ritchie ($1.8 million QO .... hopefully he's not qualified). You'd also need to sign at least 2 more defenders.

    Bottom line, you have to make buyout decisions before free agency. Nichuskin is not a $3 million player, and Dallas already has too many slightly overpaid Bottom 6 forwards. I don't have any confidence that Nill would pull the trigger, but this team has proven they just need scoring to take the next step. All of that money dumped into Nuke can easily be allocated for better options. For me, it's just not reasonable or sustainable to spend $8.6 million next season on Cogliano, Nichushkin, and Comeau, and only Nichushkin has an affordable out.

    Oh yeah ... and Heiskanen probably hit all of his B bonuses, none of his A bonuses. That's another $850,000 against this years cap, but Dallas is over the cap. Now, I know ELC's called up after a player is placed on LTIR must account for their bonuses against that players LTIR money. I'm not sure how it works when a guy is already on the roster like Heiskanen.

    There's at least a chance that $850,000 in bonuses could come of next seasons cap. I think it's unlikely, but looking at Cap Friendly, it doesn't seem like Heiskanen's bonuses were accounted for in the LTIR space.

    Yup, Cogliano, Comeau, and Nichushkin all cost too much and our GM signed them all up or traded for them. Not very smart. I hope he does clear the cap space of Val. I try to look at the positives for him this season in his play.. hes done well in some areas. But at the end of the day you can't pay 3 million for 0 goals. Just can't happen.

    Although I was admittedly okay with the trade at the time, you could probably add Oleksiak to that list as well.

    Cogliano is overpaid, which is fine for now as long as he is an even slightly useful player. You can still dump him via waivers or by trading him for futures. However, if he stops being useful as early as next year then you won't be able to dump him anymore and you'll have a significant cap problem because of it.

    I think this off-season it should be a priority to move on from Cogliano while it's still possible. Buying out Nichushkin is a no-brainer. This might be an above average free agent crop so having some cap space is important. Of course, that's true for every team so it might not be possible to trade Cogliano until after most players have been signed.
