    The window is only open if there's an arbitration award greater than 4M for the Vancouver player. If not, then there's no buyout window. I believe that is correct but if not, I'm sure someone will correct me.

    Have to think the Bruins are out unless they move one of Krejci or Rask as they still need to re-sign Debrusk, too.

    Maybe it's Montreal.

    Out : Kulak, Byron, Weal.

    In : Hoffman.

    Habs adding Hoffman would be big. Getting Both Tofoli and Hoffman in the same UFA year is damn good.

    The trick is to magically want teams to take Kulak, Byron and Weal.

    I'd trade Eriksson for the three of them.

    Don't know if that helps the Habs too much (but he's gone in 2 years).

    Unless Benning somehow magically hypnotizes a GM to take Sutter+Virtanen, it's not happening methinks. No way we move out cap.

    If we had to pay a 1st to get rid of Eriksson and Sutter so we can sign Mike Hoffman (perennial 30 goal scorer) to a discount, then so f***ing be it.

    Hoffman/Schmidt are massive additions to this core, even losing Tanev, Markstrom and Toffoli. And being rid of those two boat anchors means we can add another piece.

    This would be great, and make the team better and the fans happy for sure. But the Canuck’s owner doesn’t appear to be too keen on buying out anyone right now. I think we might even see Baertchi in the lineup with Loui and Sutter as a line this coming season.

    That is ridiculous. Habs could use another top 6 forward. There is no way they can move out 3 players to do it though.

    Incorrect. Once a contract is signed by a player in arbitration, the team can buy out a contract 48 hours after but that buyout must be for a player that has at least a $4 million cap hit. So you can't buyout Beagle for example but you could buyout Sutter or Eriksson if they want.

    Habs would make the most sense. Take a 1 year and build up his value playing next to Koko

    Building up his value by playing next to a guy who was in Laval last year?

    This is a bad take! Yikes

    This isn't about the emergence of rookies; the OP you're responding to didn't even mention it. What does the emergence of Boeser, Pettersson, and Hughes have to do with the terrible contracts Benning signed?

    All of these contracts, the moment they were signed were terrible. Young players coming up doesn't change a thing. Wasting cap space on crappy players with always hinder a team. For a team to be successful in today's NHL, players have to play above their cap hit.

    One can hate on the signings at the time because they created the current cap crunch.

    Name another team with worse cap management? The Canuck's best players are being paid the least. There's about half a dozen overpaid players. The team is hardly competitive. This is comedically bad management.
