    A time machine. Go back to July 1st, 2016 and don’t give him that contract.
    I’m still trying to perfect mine so the hawks don’t sign seabrook for 8 damn years.

    Creative way? I have a better option.

    Step 1) Buy him a fake mustache

    Step 2) Walk him down to the court house, have him legally change his name to Elias McDavid.

    Step 3) ?

    Step 4) Profit


    Vancouver seems pretty stuck with that contract unless they retain and add sweeteners.

    Whoops I misread the buyout. The. $833K after bonus is not per year.

    Carolina Hurricanes buy out Patrick Marleau five days after trade

    So $4M cash is worth a 1st.

    Yeah, again that was last year when everything was rosy. $4m cash should be worth more then that now with a flat cap and many teams tightening their payroll.

    You didn’t read it properly

    Vancouver gives up 2 2nds with LE st $4M
    Team A gets a 2nd to retain $2M cap space over 2 yrs
    Team B ends up with LE at $2M and a 2nd

    Ok... how does this work? LE has a two years remaining at $6M/yr.

    If Canucks retain $2M/yr leaving Team A with LE at $4M/yr (and two 2nds).
    Team A retains "$2M cap space over 2 yrs" (which is $1M/yr) that leaves LE at $3M/yr for Team B (and now one of the 2nds).

    How does "Team B ends up with LE at $2M"???
    Team B is left with deadweight player at $3M/yr for two years. For a second round pick? No... Team B needs a 1st minimum and probably more.

    Now if Team A retained $2M/yr for two years... that's $4M of dead cash/cap and exactly what Marleau cost. That price was a 1st.

    I think the best bet is to convince Eriksson to retire and then the Canucks hire him as a scout for the money he would have made (or a little more). Eriksson still gets paid, Canucks lose his cap hit. :sarcasm:

    "LTIR" is my concern. Zetterberg perhaps, but Hossa became allergic to his equipment the second his contract became a burden? I mean the timing on that screams suspicious.

    Or I though his back dived a lot more dramatically then it does. My mistake.

    You're right, I lumped his in with the other front loaded, back diving contracts (perhaps due to length?), my mistake, I brought his name into it unnecessarily.

    Give his wife a job that pays her 8 million dollars over two years, and send her to Antarctica to scout polar bears.

    Louie can take the hint, terminate his contract and move with her.

    The NHL warned teams that the loophole would be closed, if the player retired early. And still gave teams an out...get the player to agree to go on LTIR. If you are mad at anyone, get mad at Luongo for helping the Panthers lower their salary cap, by retiring instead of going on LTIR, which would have helped the team that gave him the big contract with the big dollars up front.

    Neal 750 retained so 5 million a year . Saves the Canucks a million but adds an extra year cost the 7 million instead of 5.75 but gets them out of a contract a year earlier .

    Eriksson is a benchwarmer. 10 goal scorer at best.

    Easy!

    step 1: trade him to Buffalo for Okposo who also has a 6mil cap hit. But both teams retain 50%.

    step 2: each team trades them to two different teams, and again retain 50%. Therefore, the teams that gets him and Okposo only are taking on 1.5 mil. So neither Buffalo nor Vancouver have to give up a lot.

    Buffalo and Vancouver save 1.5 mil!

    It was a retroactive decision made after a number of those contracts were signed. Saying they warned they would close the loop hole after the contracts signed, then retroactively punishing teams that signed an (at the time) legal contract is a joke for this league. The only contract that was signed in bad faith was the first attempt at Kovalchuk signing in New Jersey, and that punishment was reduced after he left the NHL and his contract was nullified from losing their first to picking last in that year.
