    It seems both McBackup and Mrazek will be UFAs. Good options there for a backup goalie.

    That's what prospects are for - and the Habs have Poehling.

    It wasn't that long ago that Price signed for $6.5 million and everyone spit out their drinks because it was SO EXPENSIVE. Now you see backups signing for $3mil+

    Jake Bean had a decent season in the ahl

    I would package a little to get him and draft newhook/kaliyev/krebs/lavoie/tomasino

    When did Gallagher sign his deal?

    Recent signings are more apt comparables. It’s a proven inflationary market.

    Would you offer Marner the same money as Nathan MacKinnon?

    not that I'm a huge fan of him, but if we're to reduce his TOI just so he'll cost less (wich will have hime leave as UFA my guess), might as well let him go right now and get assets back.

    I mean, you don't reduce players TOI just so you can save a few $,

    I've been looking at Bean for a while now. Great all around game.

    Canes need LHD, too, so Bean is unlikely to be traded unless it's for a top end lhd.

    Looks like Edler might be re-signing in Vancouver.

    Puljujarvi and the Oilers 2nd for Byron. Not sure I would do this or not. Would you? I hear they are looking for a 3rd line player cause their depth sucks. I don't see any team trading an asset like Byron straight up for Puljujarvi.

    I don't really care for Puljujarvi but I would be willing to see how he fits our team. The 2nd and 38th pick would be what I am after!

    I think Montreal should go after Timo Meier (Offer Sheet).

    Assuming an upper limit of 83M per cap friendly (although, insiders are saying it may be 81.5-82M, which is even better).

    The Sharks currently have 16.3M of cap space available, say they resign Labanc (probably around 5-6M AAV)
    So that's 10M left to resign Thorton, Pavelski, Marleau (said Thorton & Marleau both take 1M deals, I can't see Pavelski taking less than 6M) you're left with 2M cap space with 11F, 6D, 2G signed. Add 3 league minimum contracts and you're at 22 contracts (not 23 as most clubs carry) and no more cap space, again assuming cap space of 83 so it gets even worst for them if it falls below.

    That leaves a big hole for who? Timo Meier. I'd offer 7 years at 7.5M AAV (because of the way offer sheets work, the compensation required would fall at 10.5M equivalency, so that's 2 first round picks, a 2nd rd pick, and a 3rd rd pick.

    Mieir turns 23 once the season rolls around, so his best years are ahead of him, and he's going to be a solid contributor for the length of that contract which takes him to age 30.

    Thoughts?

    We could try getting Duchene without losing two first, a second and a third pick. I wouldn't want Meier at that price

    Sharks would match, they would let the old farts go. It's about time for them to let go.

    I doubt the Oilers do that.

    That brings them to just over 6 mill cap space based on 83 mill and they need a good d added and another good forward. They're better off trading him for cheap talent that might be in a similar place, like Lehkonen for him straight up.

    6 years at $7M is the highest I would go. This would be a 2020 1st, 2nd, 3rd. We would be taking a risk that we have a healthy season next year and make the playoffs. If we don't, our 1st becomes a lottery pick.

    Two 1st is more risk than I am willing to take.

    Or you go with a 5 year deal at $8M. We overpay in AAV but this puts a lot of pressure on the Sharks cap situation. If they match, they have $6.3M for 7 players and Thornton, Pavalski, and Nyquist are gone. They also have to give Lablanc a raise too.

    I'm not going to do them any favors. If they say no, tell them to explore other options and if they fall through, circle back and give us a call.

    Can somebody tell me why Meier would accept an offersheet from us?

    I'd definitely like to take a chance on Puljujarvi.

    Byron is my first thought, but like it's been said, capwise might be tough for the Oilers. I'd like to keep the Fins together on the team.

    I'd offer them someone like Peca, but they probably don't want him.

    It seems all RFA could accept an offersheet from us but no UFA want to sign here.

    Makes sense

    Because he would get paid (assuming he doesn’t have an opportunity to choose from several Offer Sheets)?

    So Edler re-signs and we pretty much have to go all in on Ghost, eh?
