Team Explanation
So I’m asking the question. Who does Tampa move out at the end of the 2020 season. They have a serious cap crunch coming.. is this the last year they compete for the cup before retooling? Interested to hear what everyone thinks?


I've gone back and edited based on comments and it's a doable thing... if those dollar amounts come in at that.. any higher and there is more that will need to be subtracted... still in a crunch situation regardless

hopefully Cirelli takes a 3 mil bridge, scratch killer a bunch this season and hopefully he waives his NTC. Maybe throw Joeseph as a sweetener if we do trade killer iunno

Still leave them with a large cap issue

With the youth they are bringing into the league... it may be a time to look at moving a Stamkos... he’d be close to 31 by then... then you’d have to look at a Johnson being moved and possibly McDonagh!! IMO

My new favorite poster.. Cooper and Stamkos go next year .. should have been this year .. factvthat Gourde is on roster says there is NO chance for this GM either..

1) Vas won't be signed to a 8 years contract and won't get 10M AAV. Expect his AAV to be in the 7.2-8M ballpark.
2) Killorn M-NTC will kick in July 1st 2020, he'll be traded to free up 4.45M.
3) No way in hell we'd sign Joseph to a 3.2M contract. He can be a useful player, but he's not worth that kind of money on a bridge. He's the most expendable and replaceable of the 2020 RFAs, if needed we'll move him in exchange of some draft picks/prospects. We got plenty of ELC, middle six talent coming up from Syracuse.
4) Cirelli will get that kind of AAV only if this season he goes over 65 points, otherwise he'll be way cheaper, in the 3.6-3.9M ballpark. Even if he goes nuts this upcoming season I don't see him getting more than 4.5M. Lucky for us he's in his contract year and contrary to Point even if he goes crazy he won't have another good productive season to back his asks up.
5) Paquette is a 4th line center. Anywhere over 1.5M is likely gonna be a no-go for BriseBois. 2.75M would be a moronic number to pay for him. Also, we won't sign him to more than a 2 years, as the pipelines from Syracuse are getting hot. If his asks are that high he'll be traded and replaced by Verhaeghe. If not he'll be signed to a 2 years contract and probably moved next summer.
6) If Palat craps the bed this season too, expect BriseBois to ask him to waive his NTC next summer.

So with those comments I went back and followed your plan.. you can fit them under the cap but just by a bit.. if any salaries come in higher there would need to be more subtractions
