There isn’t a team out there in this current flat cap enviro that’s going to pay you a thing to take on a 9M x 7 year contract with full NMC especially when that player’s top production is 63 points.

You probably could. The problem occurs that no team will want to take on that contract and then have to protect him in the expansion draft. Skinner is a fine player but 9M was steep before the flat cap. I’d love a 40G scorer in Nashville but I don’t want any part of that contract

They don’t need to trade skinner no team will take him on. He will bounce back. He was extremely unlucky last season.

Yep the improvements to the team will definitely help. He only played a full game with Eichel the last two games of the season.,

There would need to be significant retention in any Skinner trade. That cap hit for that term is just too much for how inconsistent he can be.

I do not think we all understand just what a poor job Krueger did last season.
Sheary, Rodrigues, Okposo, Miller, Montour, Vesey, Skinner and Pilut (I am adding him because he bolted to the KHL and had ZERO pts in 13 games after registering 6 in 33 the previous year) ALL had career worse seasons.
During the season, I sometimes thought he was brought in to tank for a better draft pick, then we ended up with Quinn instead of Rossi.
What can one expect when he started the season with Sobotka then played mostly with Sheary and Rodrigues.
Put Jeff back with Jack and he will bounce back.
Yes he is over paid if he only gets 30 goals, if he and Jack can find their chemistry again, he is paid correctly at 40 goals.
