    For sure. Their teams are loving those long term contracts right now.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Matthews asks for the max. I'll be interested to see if McDavid's contract acts as a type of salary cap. Doubt it.

    If the cap does go to 82 million this year ....McDavid signed when cap was still 73 million? that alone means a bump....

    and the Oiler GM said this at the time of the signing June 5 2017 :"It easily could have been a lot higher in value and shorter in term," Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli said.

    I'm actually still surprised that didn't happen. $13m over 5 years. They get one UFA year.

    Not sure why McDavid committed like that to an organization that hasn't shown anything.

    He'll still be only 29 when this deal is up. Can't imagine what the Cap will be at in 8 years probably $90m - $95m. That's $18m-$19m for salary.

    according to TSN cap will be $80 million. So we have just over $18 million and roster is currently at 21 pro players signed.

    Danault and DLR are the only two players worth resigning.

    Danault might get $3.5 mil.
    DLR is under $1 mil or close to.

    That leaves $13-14 mil cap space.

    If MB doesn't trade to bring in a center I'm expecting Pleks back and likely Bozak to be Habs after July 1s1. Also expecting another bottom pairing defenseman signed they hope can play with Weber so my expectations are very very low.

    Montreal will have more than that when Pacioretty gets traded...same as Shaw,Schlemko and part of Alzner's contract or buy him out.

    The first thing Frk should do after signing his new contract is buy a vowel or two.

    Memorial Cup Memories: Martin Frk – Halifax Mooseheads

    It is difficult to imagine the Mooseheads winning the Memorial Cup without Marty Frk.
    Marty played most of the 2012-13 season on the Club’s top line with Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin. Frk was the team’s second leading scorer in the regular season and his 33 playoff points tied him with MacKinnon for second among playoff scorers. It was Frk, not Drouin, who joined MacKinnon and Portland’s Ty Rattie as the forwards on the Memorial Cup All-Star team. When the statistics were tallied at the end of the 2013 season only Drouin’s 54 goals exceeded the 53 that Marty Frk scored during the regular season, playoffs and Memorial Cup.
    Along with his sparkling offensive output Mooseheads fans will remember Marty Frk as the player who probably shot the puck harder than any player in team history. Unfortunately the most remarkable shot of Frk’s career was one that Mooseheads fans did not see live. During Game 4 of the President’s Cup final in Baie Comeau a Martin Frk slapshot zipped into the Drakkar net and stuck in the mesh. The arena buzzed as the game was delayed for five or six minutes as the two linesmen tried to pry the puck loose.

    Mathias Brunet already reported that Habs have declared Alzner's contract won't be bought out.

    Better off with high draft picks until the next #1 center hopeful is in place.
    - Kotka probably 2 years away.
    - a couple of centers in top 10 in 2019 who could be ready a year after their draft.

    Either way, a 2 year placeholder will do, so: Pleks.

    They should over pay some of the top UFAs on 1 year deals with the plan to trade them at the deadline retaining 50%, eat half at the deadline and get a couple 2019 1st. Example, John Carlson at 8+ to get him. Then at the deadline he’s just 4 on the cap

    Tehnically speaking, it will be a little more than 19.8M if the Cap is set at 80M$ for 20 contracts.
    I don't expect the Habs to carry 8 D-men.

    As for DLR and Danault's deals , at this point it should be an afterthought and as far as i'm concern, Danault and DLR could easily be included in a trade deal (for another center of course) . Those signing can wait after the UFA period.

    He won’t do it because he’s risking long term money.

    Mid players though...that could work.

    Frk has an absolute lazer on the PP would love to see him and Athanasiou on the Habs they need to get away from Blashill dog house as soon as possible.

    If you somehow get Frk you can operate the PP like how Washington does with Frk in Ovies spot Weber in Carlson, Gallagher in Oshie spot, Drouin on the Half wall, and whoever else in front of the net

    All-in on Tavares, put almost all that money on him so you can attract him, like 12Mx7. Yes that would be grossly overpaid, but that's a fine handicap for a free asset of that caliber and that move alone would fix most of our problems (center position/goal scoring ability/elite talent/PP). If you compare other possible realistic scenarios (trades our assets for a topC (O'Reilly), Bozak, missing on things/not landing an actual top6 C, ...), I more than fine with that one.
