    Maybe in Marner’s case, they’ll put him on IR for the playoffs :sarcasm:

    I meant more like they used the existing cap rules to their advantage. The actual injury and health reports I can’t say.

    I mean they were still a dominant team without Kucherov this year and won the Cup without Stamkos last year.

    the NHL can close the loop-hole if they want.

    You can LTIR however much you want but the roster you ice in regular season or play-offs must fit under the salary cap. If it doesn't, you cannot play with that roster.

    So simple

    it’s been done multiple times before, but I feel like this year, tampa might have overdone it, and there’s finally gonna be some pushback on this and I’m expecting a rule change on this

    Only if you buy us dinner first. We may be underdogs, but we're not easy. ;)

    Congrats on your victory over the Bruins. Now please go squash the Bolts.

    I’ll buy you pints at Hurley’s if you guys beat us in the SCF (as soon as us common folk are allowed to cross the border).

    Every team can benefit by the same loopholes Tampa used. It’s not exclusive to them.

    Also everyone should be careful what they wish for with changes the rules. There may be a chance that when Weber is ready to retire that he may go on IR for the remainder of his years.

    Yep. Tampa was only able to do it because Kucherov had a surgery in December with a ~6 months recovery. Perfect timing for him to only be ready for the playoff...

    For next season, with 19 signed players, they are a bit over 5m over cap. The Kraken will help a bit, but probably not enough. They will have to trade and get cheaper pieces... Unless Stamkos gets a long term injury again. ;)

    They basically have to get rid of Johnson's contract + a third or fourth liner.

    ...yeah, but it's still more Sour Grapes than anything else...it's not like Tampa was the only team to take advantage of this loophole, even this year...the Laffs did it with Andersen and no one took offense...Tampa just did it with the better player...

    Correct.

    But it doesn't make Dougie Hamilton wrong in saying it.

    There is a difference with using LTIR for someone who is done playing than it is for someone who is out and back JUST in time for the playoffs when the cap doesn't matter anymore.

    It kinda has to be McDavid, going by the usual ''who had the best season'' criteria. He's like 50% of his team's entire offense all by himself.

    Is there a specific reason why the salary cap is not applied during the PO?

    I think the problem with the Kucherov case is that they were in big trouble and werent able to trade the players they wanted

    So Kucherov entered LITR an entire season due to an injury... at this point , No problem but the fact he was ready to play game 1 in the playoff and didnt even look rusty is a bit weird but stil it's not against the rules.

    But people wouldnt be mad if Kucherov missed like the first round and the first 2 games of the second round , that mean his injury was not recovered. But yeah it looks weird

    NHL gotta fix this shit , + Tampa is on easy mode with the tax system to sign players at less money.
