Around the NHL 2018-2019

Recommended Posts

Allen and Lehner might as well be the same guy.

And Allen’s play on that contract is a mistake we don’t want to make with Lehner.

 

Eklund’s stuff is so bad.

Buffalo and Vegas are neck and neck on James Neal?

I guess that’s possible if Neal hasn’t talked to Vegas yet.

Because he certainly hasn’t talked to Buffalo.

 

Further to Lehner/Allen, that is one way I could see Lehner’s rights traded: in exchange for a salary dump.

Ah didn't know hockeybuzz was E5

The top forwards in the league at scoring per minute of ice time (ie, most efficient scorers) makes me sad.
McDavid: 3.2 P/60

MacKinnon: 3 P/60

Matthews: 2.93 P/60

Barzal: 2.90 P/60

Kucherov: 2.85

 

We basically picked around those top four guys in one way or another. 

Eich was 66th. E-Rod is like 64th. No other Sabre is in the top 200 players. Sam and Kyle were both below 260th.

:flirt:

 

That was my thought too.

But if we had McDavid, MacKinnon, Matthews or Barzal, would they have produced at the same rate in Buffalo?  I bet not.  You'd be complaining about why didn't we pick Eichel instead because he might have been in that group.  Coulda woulda shoulda will drive you over the edge.  We got Eich, now let's get a team around him and a system that works.  Dahlin is a good start.

McDavid would be the only one on this list who might produce at the same rate

I want nothing to do with buying him out unless it's necessary to free up cap space for something awesome.

I wonder if having Dahlin here on an elc makes buying out Bogo an option?

 

I still don't think it happens. But maybe it's just a bit more likely now.

The one time each year the Bogo Bunker can be opened.

Gotta have someone actually playing defense. Bogo had a definite roster spot next year just for depth reasons. Adding Dahlin makes that roster spot more contentious.

 

Unless we trade another d man away.

No, the Bogo Bunker does not welcome those who would buy him out. If there's anything worse than paying him millions of dollars to not play due to injury, it's paying him millions of dollars to play somewhere else.

Much rather buy out Beaulieu

Or Pominville

They're both gone after this year anyways, what's the point?

Granted I don't know the cap ramifications, but Balloon ain't exactly holding you back in that department. Just stuff them in the minors

The problem is if they're in the organization Phil is putting them in the top 9/6

 

If only there was a management tool to dump horrible contracts to prevent such a thing from happening while also not incurring future cap hits...

If we're buying out people solely because our coach is too inept to not use them, we have bigger issues
