Who wants Smith tho hella overpaid
..the Byron and Shaw deals are bargains...those 2 guys stay
MB must have his Visa card ready and waiting, to buy a UFA
this friday will see MB talking to alot of gm's
but after the draft, MB will say had many talks but trades don't happen easy, and he needs to buy a dog for loyal companionship.
Habs should test water regarding James Neal and TJ Brodie in Calgary.
I am not sure the Flames are happy with Neal (and vice versa) + they have tons of better LW. Brodie will be UFA next season and could be the ideal partner for Weber right now.
We need to move up in the draft in pick Bowen Byram
Swap our first pick with Colorado
Give one of Shaw or Byron
Make it happen
The guy is nhl ready
#15 pick + Shaw or Byron won't give you #4 pick OV. Colorado would be crazy to make such a deal.
And Byram could be picked at #3 by Chicago even if hey have many bright prospects on D already.
With our young Finns, if Puljujarvi goes for something reasonable and to someone else I’ll be pissed!
I can’t divulge who but it’s a source high up in Habs management with the initials MB.
isnt he an asst GM with the Blues ?
Then send Drouin insted
Koulious (sp?) And Barnaby on NHL radio today said they keep hearing the Habs linked to Ehlers. Fwiw.
The ole reuinification card with Mackinnon.
Holy **** this is terrible.
Would anyone do:
Unprotect 1st rounder 2020
Personaly think Byrons speed would mesh amazingly with Mcdavid
Ehlers got skills but is kind of leave you wanting more like Drouin, he isn’t a big guy either and never step up in the playoff at 6M$ for 6 years not sure he the guy we want to target...
We'd all do that as Habs fans. Edmonton would be offended.
You must be a leafs fan, as this post shows your brain is on drugs.
This site sometimes pisses me off with these unsupported replies by some...
Only way I’d trade for Ehlers is if we traded Drouin for LD or big, scoring winger like Kreider. They’re just to similar to have on the same team and possibly same line.
While I was on the Ghost bandwagon, I am not sure that I want us to pay what it would likely take to get him.
Some were discussing Leddy for Tatar and I also think it would be a fair deal. With that being said, Tatar is a great fit with us, I wonder if they could be interested in Byron+ for Leddy.
Puljujarvi is an option I would explore. While I don’t think they would trade him for Hudon straight up, maybe we could get it done by adding a swap of picks.
You can place any LTIR contract on IR before the season starts but you have to get permission from the NHL and it comes with some complications. Read the link below.
LTIR FAQ - CapFriendly - NHL Salary Caps
Can LTIR be used in the off-season?
Yes, LTIR can be used in the off-season while the 10% off-season cushion is active. LTIR in the off-season is calculated using the basic equation outlined above, which permits a team to exceed the off-season salary cap. To use off-season LTIR the team must provide doctors proof that the player in question will continue to be injured at the beginning of the regular season for 10 NHL games and 24 calendar days.
At the start of the season the teams LTIR relief & ACSL is recalculated when the 10% cushion is removed.
I already proposed a Byron+ offer and their fan base don't like it. I agree about how Tatar fits with our team but that's the player it might take to get Leddy.
The issue with a cap team, that is also trying to be a contender, having a player like Clarkson on LTIR is that they don't accumulate cap space throughout the season. That's why they want to move him, so that they can have some flexibility to make deadline moves without being forced to move out the same amount of salary coming in.
Correct, you can place the contract on LTIR before the season starts and with permission from the NHL but it comes with complications. Blackhawks traded the Hossa contract for that exact reason... it was complicated to manage around.
However, I am aware of some of the issues they would face but I believe the ELC performance bonues would be at play with the accumulated space. Right now though, cap friendly has their next season at $0 for performance bonus so it might be a bit easier to work around.
It's not a simple formula to manage around though
