  1. what was the Montreal GM going to say? the truth?!? "yea, um, we know we got played into signing a cheap offer sheet because Sebastian wanted to stay in Carolina. He wanted 5 years and we were glad we could help out his negotiations with Carolina." Also all the folks leaving were Francis and JR guys. New management teams usually get new people. A lot of chicken littles today.
  2. Nothing went sour. Aho wanted 5 years and we were set on 8. Instead of going the whole summer, he went out and found someone who would give him 5. He gets what he wants a month earlier. Knowing that Aho didnt come back with an offer says Aho was only going with 5 years and didnt want to waste his summer worrying about it.
  3. the RFAs want 5 years because the cap is expected to take a big jump over the next 4 years. We add in the Seattle market money and the new TV deal. The revenue and the cap is expected to make a good jump.
  4. y'all are crazy. Aho wanted 5 years and he made it happen. Aho didnt counter after Vancouver. My guess is he didnt want this to drag out all summer. He doesnt want to leave, if he wanted to leave he would have gotten more than the Canes would match. DW will slow play cuz they can.
  5. I think Aho is just proving a point here with the offer sheet. He wanted 5 years, the team wanted 8. He is basically forcing the Canes hands at 5 years. Canes wait a full 7 days, screw over the Canadians, and easily match.
  6. Montreal Offer Sheeted Aho 8.4 x 5. high bonus money
  7. outside of getting a goalie there wasnt much to do today. We basically have two options for starting goalie and can control the price. So, we are own the negotiating power at this point. More than likely get another roster player for cheap later in a trade.
  8. I don’t see why if Aho doesn’t want 8 and 5 doesn’t make sense for the franchise then, why not do a 2 year bridge deal? You keep his rights and see if he truly is a PPG player. In two years the cap wont jump so much that Aho would get paid crazy money. Then shoot for a 5-8 year deal. I get paying them more now to save money then.
  9. As soon as all the big names are signed, we’ll find out out which left out teams will overpay for Dzingel, Ferland, Simmonds, and Nyquist. Columbus, Colorado, and Buffalo are my guesses.
  10. What are you talking about? We saved money on this deal by getting a backup for an anchor. Florida does it because they could save money on buying out the worst goalie. We got a 1st rounder We got a 2C for a 4th round pick. That isn’t bailing anyone out. We got better in all those deals
  11. Reimer has 2 years. Saved 800k a year to fill a roster spot
  12. Good lord y’all jump off the cliff quickly. Reimer will be the backup. He isn’t a number one. This actually a good trade. Here’s why: Florida was gonna buyout Reimer. Reimer’s buyout would be 400k cheaper this season but 1 million more expensive next season. So it makes sense from Florida’s standpoint because it’s cheaper next season for them to buy him out. from our standpoint. We were going to buyout Darling anyways. Were we going to get a backup for 400k? No. So we save money in the deal and fill a roster spot.
  13. Dzingel won’t be signing for a decent price.
  14. Chucky has 51 and 56 points as the most in his career. Then 3 seasons of low 40s. Kessel has 9 seasons over Chucky’s best season. 11 seasons more than 50. 4, 80 or over.
  15. Pittsburgh getting worse on offense to shed salary for next offseason. Chucky sucks at D too. i like it.
  16. Since Marleau is 35 his entire cap hit remains. His owed 415k doesn’t count against our cap next season. So we have about 8.5 million in dead space right now. Luckily HWSNBN’s cap finally goes away after 2021. Darling, if bought out will ride on the cap until 2023. Would have 4.66 million in dead cap next year if we buy out Darling. 1.13 the 21-22 & 22-23 seasons.
  17. Nothing suggests we’ll be mussy middle next season
  18. I think its a long term answer. A. Im not sure how competitive we are for big UFAs to start with. B. The 1st adds to the top end talent to of the farm. The draft is supposedly deep with as many as 6 organization changing players and down to 20 is of the same caliber as 8-12 in the past draft. With 2 picks we could potentially move up like Rem wants. C. We are looking to maintain a deep farm to keep the roster back loaded with talent.
  19. Aho, TT, Staal, Svech, Marty, Nino, Foegele, Wallmark, Haula Slavin, Pesce, Faulk, TVR, Hamilton Ned with 12 million we have 2 goalies McGinn re-signing, Necas, Williams or a Checker, Fleury re-signed, and potentially a 13th forward get an extra 2 million if we buy out Darling
  20. More jump on the cheap talks. Haula is a fantastic addition as he does everything Rod would want in a player. He is capable of adding 25 goals. Speed. Triple Speed. I don’t like the Marleau deal because the additional 6.25 million in cap kills our chances of getting a top 6 FA. I do like it from the fact that you get another first rounder in a stacked draft. V was leaving. What stinks is he is going to be Pittsburgh’s coach within a year. Pittsburgh’s coach will get fired because JR sucks at his job i dislike the CDH move because we’re keeping Faulk.
  21. We are at a point where the defender for offense trade is gone. so we are at futures for a forward or UFA signing.
  22. This rumor is beyond BS. That Shannon guy is the same one who said we’d be playing in QC this season. He got it from Kypreos and Ek 2 days ago. Which both are tabloid level insiders these guys are trying to pull the attention off Toronto.
  23. We were short on defenders either way. We just happened to ship out the one that may have been hurt going in.
  24. We have to sign another goalie to buy him out or we find someone to take him, however unlikely that is
