  1. I put something similar in the offseason thread but, Marleau and HWSNBN's cap hits are earmarked for Svech's extension. Marleau's cap hit will probably go to cover Williams' performance bonus next season, probably 50-75% of it. I hope we get McGinn is also put on a two year deal. Then the protection questions comes down to how Faulk, Fluery, Foegle, Haula and Wallmark are handled.
  2. We don’t need to protect Dzingel, Marty, Hamilton, Ned, Mrazek, or Necas. who we protect should be based on how Bean and Fleury do this season and next. Also who is kept after this coming season will play a role. Unless Nino blows up for 35 goals the next two seasons, I make him the exposed forward. He would have one year left and we probably can’t afford to re-sign him.
  3. Toronto fans would go crazy if that trade went through. would I be crazy to say no to it?
  4. Standard arbitration practice of asking for too much to get what you really want.
  5. Cap hit 6.25 because he is 35+ cost: 3 million for his signing bonus then 2/3rds of his remaining 1.25 million salary or 833k. That 833k is split over double the remaining years of his contract. He had one year left so its split into two years or 416k per season. the 2nd year, although paid, doesn’t count against our cap hit like most buyouts because we are charged his full amount this season. end cost 3.866 million, 2019-2020 3.416 million, 20-21 416k
  6. The efficiency includes Dzingel having a lower rating due to playing on a low Corsi and negative ES team in Ottawa for three years. Also as the team improves performance other guys ratings will improve as well.
  7. Maybe. Rumors he may go elsewhere if an extension isn’t reached.
  8. What is crazy to me is: A. Pittsburgh has gotten worse. B. NJ still has bad goaltending and Hughes isn’t worth that much in terms of standings. C.Rangers can’t afford everyone they have now D. The flyers, really? Their goaltending continues to be awful. E. The panthers who have to compete with the the other 3 have a better chance than anyone in the Metro? Please. F. We have the same odds as Montreal who has remained neutral this offseason? Will enjoy being 2-3 points off the Metro lead this season.
  9. I could see us moving Faulk later if Fleury, Bean, or another LHD looks top 4 ready and another looks starter ready this season. As much as I would like it to happen, Rod really likes Faulk and his leadership.
  10. While true, my hope is that we have 7 permanent defenders on the roster. Not necessarily shuffling Bean back and forth when we need a 7th to travel.
  11. Waiver rules Well I learned something today, that I was right about the date but not the time frame. Waivers starts 12 days before the season starts, midnight of October 1st turns over into the 2nd which is the official start of the season. Waivers will start on the 20th of September. All players can go through camp and play in the 1st three pre-season games. After the 3rd game they must be sent down or have to go through waivers to be sent to Charlotte. We could manage with emergency call ups of Mck and/or Forsling. that would only work if we only carry 6 defenders or we now need an 8th defender. We carried 6 for most of the season except for travel. Fluery or Bean traveling but not playing. I would like to see us roll with 7 because Rod doesnt use a guy that hasnt practiced with the team.
  12. As long as they are not on the NHL roster when teams must meet cap restrictions, midnight October 1st, then they don’t have to pass through waivers.
  13. As far as the contracts go, we have 36 contracts. We still have 4 RFAs and Williams out there. We will need to save a couple of spots for our 2 1st rounders, Cotton and Martin potentially after the NCAA season is up, and a couple of other AHL veterans. That would put us at about 47 contracts.
  14. Our best option is to sign him a 1 million salary with 3 million worth of performance bonuses. The performance bonuses can be deferred to the 2020-21 cap (which may take the place of Marleau’s cap hit to some degree). signing him, McGinn, and Maenalenan would give us about 3 million of cap space which allows for a decent deadline acquisition or space to absorb some of the performance bonuses.
  15. Bishop & Forsling back on two way deals. Forsling requires clearing waivers Fluery back on a one year one way deal worth 850k. McGinn, Maenalenan, McKeown, Carrick & Forsberg are left. We have 4.6 million in space left (what a crazy time) but, that includes carrying Bishop and Gibbons at a combined 1.425 million.
  16. Early Eastern Conference standings to end next season Atlantic 1 TB 2 BOS 3 Toronto 4 Florida 5 Montreal 6 Buffalo 7 Red Wings 8 Ottawa Metro 1 Washington 2 Carolina 3 Islanders 4 Rangers 5 Pittsburgh 6 Philly 7 NJ 8 Columbus I think Florida and Montreal can flip. We can finish as high as 2nd and as low as 5th. I think 1st-6th is gonna be tight. 10 points might separate 1-6. NJ will have 80 and Columbus will be 75-78.
  17. Could pull a Fisher if we are doing well in the standings
  18. February and March was our top 5 team months, March especially. January was our worst month of goaltending, statistics wise, yet the offense really carried them.
  19. He is signed on a two way deal. I bet he’ll be back when the SHL season is up. Maybe he stays in Charlotte for the 20-21 season.
  20. Yes on a tryout contract. His ELC says he will go back to Sweden if he doesn’t make the Canes.
  21. Yes. Probably have to carry our whites against the Devils, Canadiens, red wings, panthers, etc. i wonder if Red Wings & Canadiens would gladly wear their whites at home. They did it for so long.
  22. I don’t think Sellgren is in Charlotte until his European season is over.
  23. He is a fantastic player. He would be the 16th forward to make the roster. he probably wanted a better shot at getting on NHL ice.
  24. If true, I don’t see how we carry two non-waiver left handers past TVR coming back full strength. Unless Bean is destined to stay in Charlotte all next season.
