    I think he has value as a PK'er too. I wish he'd get more time there.

    He's been very ineffective at ES this year and last year. His hard nosed board play and cycle ability has seemingly disappeared. I really hate that we extended him. At this point if this is the player he is I'd just load him up with PP and PK time cause his ES time is ineffective.

    If you spend even 5 mins in CapFriendly it is abundantly clear that we do not have cap issues, we can EASILY retain our core including Buchnevich, Zibanejad, etc and have cap space to spare. This is even assuming we sign Laf, Kakko, Fox, Shesty to BIG contracts. I had all of them signed for likely more than they'll make and was able to fit it in easily. Even several years down the road there was no issues, we will want to either force a trade or buyout Trouba/Kreider eventually just because it would be more beneficial to have the extra space and Kreider is also very unneeded on our roster

    There's definitely a noticeable difference between him and other young players that we've broken into the lineup in recent years. He seems like he's already a pro, he doesn't have the deer in the headlights and split second behind that Kakko, Lafreniere, Chytil and other youngsters have had at times. I guess that's the benefit of letting him cook for a couple years in the K and A instead of playing as a teenager.

    please post your projected roster with cap hits after giving all of those guys raises that fits under the 81.5 mil cap. I'd love to see it cause I want to make the numbers work...

    to use whole numbers, with a 20ish man roster you need to average $4 mil cap hit per player....so each guy over $4 mil, you need someone under to balance it out. panarin is at $11.6 mil is almost 3 players worth so you need several players at league minimum/ELC just to offset him. How are you paying buchnevich, zibanejad, panarin, kreider, trouba, fox, laf, kakko, shesty, chytil all over $4 mil (some of them significantly over)? and then factor in raises for miller, kravtsov, lindgren etc. there aren't enough roster spots to offset with low paid guys to pull the average down...

    the cap hits can work in the short term while those kids are still on ELC contracts....but the cap crunch in 2-3 years is simple math. we aren't going to be able to keep everyone....but thats not 100% a bad thing. the roster is not built for the playoffs right now and needs to be more balanced in terms of styles of play. so some of these guys will be swapped out regardless of the cap as we put together a more complete team IMO

    This is $75M, however I was really lazy about it. Just for some sort of frame of reference.

    Hell, I was giving out money like Oprah; Kakko & Buch 6M each, Fox 8M, Shesty 7M, Kravtsov 5M and I was still right at the cap. Which I assume won’t remain flat for that long
    Once Laf & Millers ELC come off the books, we just have to either force a trade or buyout of Trouba/Kreider and we will be fine.

    That's not a full roster...and you haven't given raises yet to laf and miller and are forcing rookies into the lineup...I said it can work in the short term, not after all those guys get raises

    Wow It’s possible for a young guy to be successful on the 4th line!?! Howwww??? Laf and Kakko suck because they weren’t put on....wait they don’t suck anymore? But EA says they won’t develop unless all get top line minutes!

    the 2 on 1 where Rooney shot off the quick tight pass from VK and Varly used his special Rangers ass magnet to draw the puck into his blocker?

    he tried shit early on and was a turnover dispenser. He took a break, played simple and his brain and conditioning are catching up and the things he’s trying are being successful. BLAME QUINN

    2 guys with near-zero offense and kravtsov is okay if you don't want Kravtsov to get any points.

    Now it's the rate they're improving. How do you determine the proper rate?

    Yeah, don’t take that the wrong way. I am very much enjoying this season. This is the most invested I’ve been in this team in a long time. I just think that they are perennial playoff contenders starting next year and I’m looking forward to them being an upper tier team again.

    Looking at that chart they're all either stars or at least very good offensive players but how is Steve Downie so high?

    not that its not still an outlier, but what gets lost in downie being an absolute psychopath is he actually was a really smart hockey player. its kinda like avery where a lot of people only thought of him as a sideshow and missed the fact he was actually a really smart player. he also shot himself in the foot alot, esp off ice, which is all most people choose to remember him by. downie was a powder keg on the ice ...where avery wasn't so much a hothead as a sht stirrer downie was full blown fit for a straight jacket. had he ever been able to get himself under control he could have been an extremely valuable player....his one real playoff run had 14 pts in 17 games. no idea why he could never get his act together, but no doubt he could play

    Gauthier has some offensive game and does go to the net and for the rest of the season I would like to see how that line would do together.

    Lol u actually convinced yourself you're one of the first and only ones to think kravtsov could try C .

    And you think you knew "the truth" about nieves.

    I'd actually like to see a kravtsov howden Gauthier line if Kravtsov is gonna be on the 4th line. I didn't mind their line the other night to be honest but id like to see Gauthier instead of Rooney.
