Team Explanation
The goals of the moves made in this were the following:
*Resign RFAs (Dubois, Gavrikov, and Anderson)
*Find scoring help in a trade and/or FA
* Find a taker for Wennberg and a D man (not necessarily together)
*Keep the team in a manageable cap situation for the 2021 and 2022 offseasons when many core players are up for raises (Bjorkstand, Texier, Foudy, Jones, Werenski, Korpisalo, Merzlikins)

I feel like all of the resignings are accurate to what AAV the players will receive with the given term. The 3 trades and 1 RFA signing all feel like moves that could be made to me.

    Not sure who to add here. This is more of a placeholder of a deal. I don't know the right match of team and player, but the idea here is basically to trade Murray for something worth about midway between a 2nd and 3rd round pick

    No from Boston. No need. If they wanted him at that cap hit they would have signed him themselves. They didn’t. Still don’t. That’s why they let him walk.

    yeah, that was done to create some cap before when I needed it, but with the moves I ended up settling on, it wasn't needed. Probably should've removed it in that case. Maybe it gets done if Columbus retains a bit, but considering the end result I settled on for the other moves, the Nash trade doesn't have much point and would be better off forgotten.

    Not even interested in him for a 7th round pick, pick a different team willing to take that cap hit in flat cap. Good luck.
