2019-20 Trade Rumors And Speculation

Yeah, I guess we could do that but it's not like we have tons of cap to throw around right now either and retaining 3M of Risto doesn't sound appealing. to bring in a .5 ppg player.  That makes Jankowski's effective cap hit a minimum of 4.675 for this year and likely over 6 at a minimum after that.  Is he worth that?

I wasn't th8nking merely Calgary. I'm thinking league wide.

I mean, think about it for a moment, and correct me if my thoughts are skewed, but we have Reinhart and Dahlin in that 3 yr window (Risto's remaining yrs on contract). This season Botts can move more than just Risto to shed a bit of cap, say, Scandella and Sobotka + one of our many line 3/4 players, no?

And if that is true, combined with a few of the ELC.talents sure to make the team in the next couple of years, as well as shedding a guy to the expansion draft (one can only pray Okposo, but even of a 1 to 3 million dollar player) it appears that puts us in excellent position to eat some healthy cap on Risto to significantly better the return.

My personal preference is Rakell, Anaheim I think would be extremely interested in Risto at 2.4 million, just an example both player and number mind you, but my point is, if we're willing to eat cap, and have the room to do so, that return should improve, no?

Really can't see any way to get Seattle to take Okposo short of giving them a 1st or equivalent.  A D-man is almost definitely going out the door to the over drizzly over caffenated city.

Using the compliance buyout on him will be a much better way to get out of Murray's last remaining bad contract.

Yea, that was my thought, package a 1st with him. Wasn't sure if the compliance buyouts were running this time.

It's not official that there'll be compliance buyouts, but they were available coming out of the last 2 lockouts.  Pretty sure it's a safe bet they'll be available again.

In theory I guess, I just don't see Risto as a player I'm willing to eat cap to move.  That's Scandella, Sobotka, Milan Lucic type territory.  If I have to do that to move him I'd rather keep him, improve the D around him and change his role to 2nd pair and PP QB over time.

Okposo is going to be delicate. He is extremely respected, a free agent who wanted to come here and all that compounded by the what he went through with the concussions.

He is more likely a candidate for the Nathan Horton treatment.

Doesn't Giardano, Brodie, Hanifin and Kylington all play the left side?

Theyre all LHD, but I'm almost positive Brodie spends his time on the right side next to Giordano

Only if he's willing to go that route.  And if he were willing to go that way, he already has that opportunity due to the concussions / incident that had him in the NICU.

Unless the recovery from his injuries was / is a 2 year process, he'll never be the player he was signed to be.  And every time he takes a bad hit, there is the fear that this is the 1 that will alter his life permamently.

LaFontaine took a long time to recover from running into his Rag teammate.  Really don't want to see Okposo follow that path.

Going the route of the buyout before the Seattle draft gives him 2 more seasons to show he can (or can't) come back and by then he might be willing to accept the writing that is on the wall.  (Assuming he remains healthy enough to play by then.)

And this management showed they can gracefully show a respected vet the door when he has to be shown it with the Moulson saga.  I expect they'll have Kyle on board / work with him when that time comes.

Good for me too.  However, I think it's agent "leak" to pressure the Leaves.

Either Botterill's squeezed information so tight to the vest his balls fell off or no ones offering up a decent return. It would be humorous if Botterill's balls did drop during a presser about how the market wasn't there, the fax machine was unplugged or some other obscure excuse come early October. Just fell right off and sounded like empty tin cans when they hit the floor 😄

I am about to trade an old steel fouton frame for more space in our basement.

It's no rumour ... it's at the curb right now.
