They moved Callahan and felt the need for more former rangers?

I believe this signing wasn't able improving Tbay, it's more likely a signing to stop him improving a Conference rival.

WTF


Could you imagine Leafs bringing Gardiner back on a similar looking 1 year deal?! That's my dream scenario. But Shatty is a RHD and a damn good one too. Also, why in the world would Jake take a huge pay cut and lose term during an important offseason for him? Now is his time to cash in. Guess Shatty already cashed in NY so he's willing to do this.

What flexibility for 2020? At least not anything cap related


Sergachev's not going nowhere.

What a loser.

"Im **** now, so I might as well join a team that really doesn't need me, and I could be really successful being ****. " Shattenkirk's dignity

This guy is literally 2 seasons removed from being a legit top-pairing guy and a good one, rest of the league passes and he falls to... Tampa. Because of course he does.


when was Shattenkirk ever a "legit top-pairing guy?"

Lucic is literally 2 seasons removed from being a legit 25 goal / 50 point power-forward.
Marleau is literally 2 seasons removed from being a legit 25 goal / 50 point snipe show.
Seabrook is literally 2 seasons removed from being a legit top-pairing defensemen.

I have some more fun facts if you'd like?

None of those guys are signed to 1x1,75.

Learn the difference,

Kinda fantasy that he was a top pairing guy two years ago. Blues traded him. near the TDL in 2017 because he was their 3rd best RHD. Yeah he was good on PP...but that was all.

Rest of the league didn't pass, Shattenkirk said there were 6 or 7 teams who contacted him and he chose Tampa

Shattenkirk is a good bet at this price, and Tampa needed a RHD, as they are quite weak on the right side, but this does make their current cap situation quite tight, but they have deals they can juggle around, guys that are waivers expempt and a few contracts that aren't that huge that they can likely trade someone like paquette easily enough.

Next year is going to be tough though. They will have at least $78M committed to 15 players, with Sergechev, Cirelli, and Cernak left to sign, as well as a roster to fill. Only Killorn's contract can be traded without his permission, and between the restriction of only being able to trade him to about half of the league, and his contract being one of the worst they have on the books that won't be easy. They likely can get it done, but it will probably cost an asset. The problem is, that even after moving contract, things don't get very easy. They will have likely at least $73.5M committed to 14 guys, with 3 RFAs. If the cap is say $84M next year, that's less than $11M to sign 3 RFAs, and fill out a roster, they won't have much else they can move because of all of their full NTCs.

Tampa has done a good job of navigating fair contracts for their stars (although I really don't like Vasilevsky's contract), but they have handed out NTCs like candy to second tier guys, and that could prove a problem.

+5.6% Corsi Rel last season on a terrible team. He had an insanely low shooting percentage at 1.4%. This guy is not much worse than he was two seasons ago.

Four years ago he was a 2nd pairing guy, since then he has played 3rd pairing. He was always sheltered behind Pietrangelo in St. Louis.
