Team Explanation
IMO it's going to real expensive to get rid of Mrzarek's 3.8m two year deal. Nylander's 7m contract is front loaded so actual $$ isn't that high for Arizona Leafs use the new found cap to upgrade their goalie, and sign their RFAs and three of their own UFAs.

    Why not trade a pick to dump Mrazek and then move Nylander in a separate trade? Moving them both together limits the return cause not many teams can take on that much cap. Nylander alone would be able to get a pretty big haul and the net return from those 2 trades would be a lot more than a 2nd round pick

    Or hey just buy Mrazek out lul

    Its not that expensive

    Year 1 = 1.033mill
    Year 2 = 833k
    Year 3 & 4 = 1. 433 mill

    That is if hes even coming back. To me 3 groin injuries in a season could = Permanent LTIR trip

    And then you trade Nylander in a separate deal if you decide to go a different direction.

    If the sweetener to get a 3.8M cap dump is a point-per-game forward teams will line up for that. Mrazek's buyout isn't even that expensive.

    I feel its either Buyout or LTIR retirement (so to speak) as if he comes back after 3 groin injuries than give this man a Medal. As when was the last time a goalie suffered 3 groin injuries in a season and came back

    Feel bad though as he was just finding his game and the injury fairy Will Smithed his ass

    But hey if he does go on LTIR (retirement) then he is moveable as many teams wanting to hit the cap floor could trade for him (Little or Boychuck)
