Team: 2018-19 Winnipeg Jets
Team Explanation
Once everyone is healthy, the jets will be victim to seroius bonus overages which we cannot afford for next season.

I also made new lines which i think would complement eachother really well.

Also, if Niku keeps getting better like this, Maurice may not be able to send him back andmight not want to either. However, i think he will be sent back purely because he is not physicaly ready for the playoffs (he will be pushed around).

The biggest bonus overage is if Laine finishes in the top 10 in scoring which at this point is a 50/50 shot. Scored in his last game but can he keep it going and hot

He is playing well and with the hayes trade I see a hot streak coming

Would any of the injuries, cut there cap hits, that possibly aren’t accounted for and also how much of the new money all ready hit some of the other teams caps, I’m not right up on such things, and there also some tricks that other teams have used, putting some dough to minors and other things to keep it in line, I got a feeling laine going to make a mess of that cap

None of our injuries are that long. Buff is at most 3 weeks and he is the longest.

Better match for the lines. Connor has great chemistry with roslovic and little. Connor cant carry the puck into the offensive zone like Perreault can. Both Perreault and hayes are also playmakers who would mesh well with laine. Though if you want and are insistent, you could bump connor up to the 1st and bump ehlers down to the 2nd and Perreault to the 3rd

This may seem strange to you but for jets fans it is something we have been suggesting for a while. the best 3 wingers to play opposite to Laine are Perreault, ehlers and wheeler in that order (Perreault and ehlers are interchangeable though)

Do you think laine with scheifele and wheeler a longterm solution or just a kickstart sorta attempt, I’m just glad I shouldn’t have to watch laine with little no longer, I found that chemistry awful

Laine - Scheifele - Wheeler is a semi long-term solution (until wheeler declines to a point where he is not good enough for the top line). However, until then Laine should play with the duo purely because he should be modeling his game after the two. They will also teach him a lot in terms of leadership and ethics. However, they should put connor or ehlers back on that line for the playoffs as winning is top priority not development. I see Ehlers/connor/vesalainen - scheifele - Laine as the future 1st line when wheeler declines (which has already begun and I hope slows down)

There is difference between chemistry and complementing. Little and Laine have good chemistry but are not the best complements for each other at this stage in Laine's carreer. Give him a year or two and little is fine. It has more to do with the winger who plays with them than little. Connor and Roslovic do not and cannot (yet) carry the puck into the offensive zone alone. This left Laine to have to do it all by himself, resulting in many turnovers as Laine is not agile. Ehlers however is great because he can carry the puck alone or work with Laine.

At the beginning of the year Perreault - Little - Laine did not work because Laine was still growing into the role of carrying the puck in (with Perreault on that line who is good but requires help often - causing him to stop at the hash marks looking for a pass). Now that Laine has learned to carry the puck in quite a bit, Perreault should be given another shot with him, though ehlers is good as well. Honestly, I would be okay with Laine playing with either little or hayes but hayes complements him better at this stage.

After that Ehlers - Little - Laine did not work simply because ehlers was in a slump and was finding his game

Yeah...no. If he is not signing in WPG, I do not think he is going to TOR

I didn't see it. I happened to change the channel right before it and they never showed a replay. Does it look bad. JoMo is a warrior though - shouldn't take him long

I would guess out 4-6 weeks with an AC Joint Sprain/potential shoulder separation

Salaries are pro-rated, so most of the cap hits have already been accumulated (particularly in the case of Hayes). We have $3.7 million in potential bonuses but CapFriendly projects cap space of $3.9 million. We will be fine. Chevy wouldn't be dumb enough to risk bonus overages next year.

To think it’s fine makes me happy but can you explain the rule more in depth so I know for the future

A player's cap hit is divided by the number of days in a season and every day that value is counted against the cap. So, using Hayes, the Jets aren't getting his 5 and change cap hit, they are accumulating the rest of the season, with the majority of his cap hit taken up by the rangers. Hayes has around 1.1 million left in cap hits.

You can go to every player's page and see their daily cap hit value and how much they have accumulated in cap hit so far, as well as what's left. So Hayes has only added 27,823 against the Jets cap so far because he's been on the roster for 1 day and that's his daily cap hit.

By the last day of the regular season, a team's total accumulated cap hit must be below the cap ceiling of $79.5 million. Capfriendly projects that if our roster remains the same by the end of the year the total cap hit will be around 75.5 million.

Basically, let's say a player is traded at exactly the halfway point of the year. His original team was responsible for 50% of his cap hit, and the next 50% will be the responsibility of his new team. If the player has a $5 million dollar cap hit, that means that team B only adds $2.5 million to their cap hit.

Hope that helps, best idea is to go to the Jets page and look at the question marks besides each value, that will explain things better.
