      Additional Details:
      a first to get rid of fleury's whole cap hit.
      Pacioretty is a big contract too. my thinking is VGK got a 3rd for Nate Schmidt and he's a pretty good D-man. Pacioretty prob brings back barely anything at all then or has to give up something more.....if PIT gives up say McCann then VGK would balance it out...

        I don’t like that explanation. People saying he only got a 3rd for Nate Schmidt, and now valuing everyone that low. Like seriously, they traded Schmidt for that low because they had to trade someone before the next day, or before they could announce it or something, and if they didn’t trade someone, they wouldn’t get Pietrangelo. They would’ve gotten more if Pietrangelo wasn’t on the line. So you can’t value trades that way, because that’s ridiculous!

        No. Pacioretty is good, but not close to good enough to add $14M in cap. Even with the 1st, etc.

        Looks great for Pittsburgh. Horrible for Vegas.

        New Jersey isn’t taking $17.5 million on in dead cap for a late 1st.
