    Looks like Stamkos reinjured the core muscle area again. Should Tampa now put Stamkos on LTIR for the remainder of the regular season, and take Kucherov off LTIR and get him in game-shape up for the coming playoffs?

    "Should"??

    Why can't both be on LTIR with Kuch rehabbing?

    I think OP assumes Kuch is healthy but sitting on the LTIR for cap reasons at this point

    Doesn't seem that way.
    Seems to want him off LTIR so he can rehab.
    Or, so that Stammer can go on.

    OP is tying two things together that have nothing to do with each other.

    Not sure what good taking an injured Kucherov off LTIR would do.

    Where did you get this information? If anything the Lightning have gone on record saying they were hopeful it's not long term and that was it. And Kucherov hasn't done a full practice either.

    Kucherov won't be ready before the playoffs. No discussion there. All indications on Stamkos say they don't expect it to be long term.

    How can you determine that for sure. Players can be cleared and feel ready ahead of schedule

    If they’re both injured, cant both be on LTIR list?

    or do you mean they are avoiding the salary cap by making fake injuries?

    Kucherov has a 1AAV higher cap hit. They can both be on the LTIR, but they can't swap them.

    If Kucherov is already healthy but being kept on LTIR purely for cap reasons the league should/will step in and either force Tampa to either activate Kucherov from LTIR and become cap compliant, or simply not approve Kucherov to play in the playoffs.

    Cause he's still rehabbing and Stamkos isn't expected to miss games long term?

    I mean this is kinda dumb considering Seguin has the same surgery a month earlier than Kucherov and is still out. Maybe Dallas just wants to LTIR him and wait for the playoffs to activate him! Oh wait they've needed him back as soon as possible all season.

    I was responding to the OP who seemed to be alluding to the idea that Kucherov could be fit enough to be activated from LTIR.

    That's Chicago-level subversion.

    That picture of Kuch might be old. They showed footage of him skating at the last practice and he was still wearing a red jersey.

    No, Chicago-level would have been if they’d put Stammer on LTIR before the deadline (which they could legitimately have done) and added Hall. Not that I want anything to do with Hall on my team, but I almost wish they’d done it just to watch HFBoards melt down.

    Check out the ad on the helmet, it's not an old picture. I'm pretty sure that picture was taken yesterday.

    They'll easily make the playoffs anyway, so why rush Kucherov.

    How convenient. Why have a salary cap if teams like Tampa Bay can use LTIR to clearly circumvent the cap? What happens next season when the Lightning cannot make trades to get under the cap? This season it was Kucherov that was conveniently injured for just the regular season; next year will it be Stamkos or Vasilevskii?
