I put this SS diversion down for awhile what with the state of the team, covid and the country although still a lurker reading off and on. With this last move my self imposed exile is now over.

This is all heading toward the perfect scenario for TPEGS. They are going to be near the cap but the actual cash paid out before escrow is still going to be $5/6 million below plus escrow plus 10% def

I think this one will be two years 

When Pierre posts something like that, the deal is usually done within hours.

He remains an RFA after two, right?

So once this is done, maybe that gives us a more final view of our cap stance and then KA can work with it and get a replacement for Hutton?

We will have 3-3.5 million under the cap, not including bonuses to work with if he decides to make something happen.

He's going to need to leave SOME money available to cover the inevitable ST injuries that cause a player to be unavailable to play but still count against the cap.  Am expecting the $'s he has to play with to get a GT upgrade are 1 of the RHD's cap hits plus whatever Hutton is making minus the ~$1.025MM that stays on the books should he be in Ra-cha-cha.

Expecting when all is said and done, the final move they make is bringing in a goalie upgrade.  Leaving ~$2-3MM in cap available to cover contingencies throughout the year but that most of it will be burned on STIR players & guys picked up at the trade deadline.  Also expecting we will see a bonus overage this season as Dahlin will almost definitely earn his entire bonus ~$2.875MM and Jokiharju & Cozens (or whatever guy on an ELC that beats him out) qualify for some bonuses as well.  Expecting that will end up @ $2-4MM off next year's cap.  And it'll be a good thing because he spent on an improved roster this year & having those bonuses will have meant the kids were contributors rather than passengers.

Belated welcome to the board Chloe.

Please forgive the following rant.  

For the love of all that's good and holy, can we PLEASE stop listing Irwin as the 5th RD?!?!?  He's making this squad and is either the 3rd or 4th LD.  He's an LH shot and has played both sides.

Hell no, we are going to play 5 RHD and only 2 LHD all year. #Analytics 

I am curious to see if Irwin even makes the team. Borgen is going to want a spot and even with the left side still a mess, Irwin really should be used as a depth guy and not a starter.

And I know I’ve been a broken record but they will upgrade in net unless a confluence of events occurs that I’d bet are less then one percent of happening. Taylor Hall is a well connected as anyone in hockey. He doesn’t come here unless Raku explains how they are going to make this all work.

As I understand it, the buyout window now opens for some length of time, yes?

I was looking at someone's calculation of Okposo's buyout numbers. They gotta be thinking about it.

There's a 2 day window now open to buyout one player if they chose to do so.

Looking at the breakdown it really doesn’t make any sense this summer.

You’re still absorbing a $4 million cap hit and you have to pay someone (likely someone worse) $1 million to replace him.

It might make more sense next summer.

Is that still the case even if they didn’t go to a hearing?

A read differently somewhere, but consider you a better source.
