We can still afford Duchene
If we need more cap we can just trade Shaw and/or Byron in 2 years
IMO it's vital to reduce Danault TOI. He'll ask for too much with all the TOI we give to him. Ideally you want to resign him.
Lol if Dan-oh wants 6.5
if you don't give him the TOI, he'll leave, his next contract is as a UFA.
My website just crashed and I thought something huge happened lol
Yikes. I'd hope he brings more to the table than that. To be honest, Ferraro's words about him were a bit discouraging. I obviously didn't see enough of his play but he makes us better at that position by default at this point.
imagine danault asking 7m
oh wait Hayes did
Danualt at 6-7. ROFL.
What’s scary is if Hayes ended up somewhere other than the spiralling Jets, he might have received more this offseason
If Dannoh really wants 6 mil or anywhere close to it he can walk. If Gallagher doesn't make that there is no business for Dannoh to make even half that... because at best Dannoh is only 1/2 Gallagher... and probably less.
For crying out loud, how did we get back to these ridiculous salaries? No sympathy for these owners if they try to lockout the players for a rollback again.
Oh come on, Danault is taller than Gallagher. Easily.
The encouraging part is that the NHL and NHLPA have already been talking about the next CBA. And it sounds like it's going well so far. Unlike last time when you can sense it was coming because they were already publicly disagreeing.
We can forget Duchene ..
Still i have a hard time with that…...not many teams left able to take on such a contract without having to shed some huge salary:
New York Rangers
Pretty much the only team that could make sense in their salary structure. Even then, not sure i should have included Buffalo who already have Skinner and Eichel at forward with 9+M, same goes for Dallas who's having Seguin and Benn.
Still wouldn't mind….
Sign Edler 6x2, Hold your young Assets. Roll with this.
Mete - Weber
Edler - Petry
Kulak - Juulsen
Edler wouldnt accept 2 years from Vancouver why would he all of a sudden accept it from us
Gallagher will make more than that on his next deal.
That I’m ok with
Give Duchene the 9m-9.5m x7 years. I wouldnt even blink. #1 centers dont fall from the sky. We have tons of cap space and a plethora of players we can trade, waive, bury to come up wih a few more million if needed.
No brainer guys.
Contract is insane but so is pretty much every contract these days. I think it's the new normal. He is something we lack and we need badly. Our team is full of small guys, and while Domi and Gallagher are able to make it work for them, a guy like Drouin needs someone to make space for him. Hayes by himself isn't helping but because of what he can bring, he's a better fit than Danault as a 2nd line C.
What do you think he will ask for?
Elite players make $11-12 million now. Average players will be making over $6 million. That's the new normal.
I feel agents and GMs know the cap will skyrocket once Seattle comes in. That seems to be the only explanation for these contracts.
Edler scares the heck out of me...A little bit of an older player, and injury concerns.
