 Canes have five D making more than $4 million and are over the cap.

Laine for Dougie Hamilton incoming.

Wow. Glad we didn't go 4 years 

I wouldn't have loved 4 years, but I think there's a better chance he ends up on LTIR than he's a healthy albatross like Scandella.

I'm just trying to stem the slight letdown I feel - I was partial to those scenarios where we flip Risto to upgrade the forwards and then bring in Gardiner such that our defense wasn't even a man down, much less worse

That seems like a fair contract for Gardiner, to me. He makes less than Tyler Myers 😂

Another concern is that now teams can move to Faulk if they don't want to pony up for Risto.

This is my main concern. I guess the RFAs aren't holding up everything, eh? Gardiner signs and now Carolina may scoop up that Risto return.

Though perhaps this makes it more likely Risto isn't moved for futures (cap space potentially allocated to Gardiner in that imagined scenario)

All this does is make McCabe no longer expendable. I wouldn’t have done 4 years for him. 

 

I dint think it disrupts Risto trade except for with the Ducks

For all the talk of our surplus at D, it's really only at RHD. With Pilut injured, the LD depth chart reads:

Dahlin

McCabe

Scandella

..with Hunwick out I don't believe we even have an extra there. And Scandella is someone we were hoping wasn't going to see regular minutes this year.

Dahlin sliding over in a pinch. Prospects are a couple years out yes.

To the right? We need him on the left.

To start the season yes. 

I'd say it's pretty likely Dahlin stays on the left for the majority of his career.

Disappointing that Gardiner signed with the Canes.  $'s seem quite reasonable and I'd've expected him to get $0.5-1MM more/ year. 

Doubt the 4th year is too many, as if his back does keep him out by then he can retire due to injury (gets his $'s/ no cap hit) or he goes BF-LTIR (which is comparable).

I would have liked to have signed him for that.

It feels like Carolina is pre-empting Botterill’s planned move again, just like in the O’Reilly talks when we should have had Lindholm.

We have to wait for the market to set.

Cant give you a source, but there were apparently O’Reilly Lindholm talks prior to the Canes making the Calgary deal.

The official story is that we were in in-depth talks with the Canes, and jame thinks it was 1 for 1 Lindholm for ROR, but I talked to the guy he got that from on twitter and the guy could only confirm that the Sabres really wanted Lindholm but the Canes weren't willing to pay the bonus.
