Elliotte Friedman said on his podcast that there’s a chance Habs don’t match, but if they do Kotkaniemi will be on the block next offseason.

Why would he be OTB next season, it won’t be that hard to get cap next year, we move someone like Byron and should be okay

Leafs fans are funny. I find the only reasonable one is the MitchMarner16 guy. I spent like an hour arguing with JaredofLondon because he was insisting that Jack Campbell was better than Thatcher Demko and I made an ACGM to ask other people what they thought and he reported me and the acgm…


Wow thanks

That’s what Friedman thinks Bergevin would do - maybe because of the QO , loyalty. Who knows. Might as well just take the 1st + 3rd rd pick now

What if the Canes just said F it and signed it and then moved him to buffalo and that cap would help offset Eichel.

I could see both the Habs and Hurricanes do that depending on what team KK is on. Habs match KK and then flip him for Eichel. Hurricanes take KK and use him for Eichel.

I found a completely logical reasoning on why the Hurricanes offersheeted KK...they wanted more Finns

I mean it could theoretically make sense if they want a younger 2C than Trocheck moving forward and like Necas at RW. It gives them one of the deepest centre lineups in the league regardless of what they do both now (Aho, Trocheck, Staal, Kotkaniemi, Necas) and moving forward (Aho, Necas, Kotkaniemi, Suzuki, and a number of other prospects). They also have an insane amount of young winger prospects that they can plug and play with on the cheap, so they can afford to overpay for 3 good centres.

That’d be a bad move, the right answer is to sign Kk and keep him, him and Suzuki as a future 1-2 punch is good

If Habs match, they can’t trade Kk for 1 year, pretty sure it would apply to the canes too

6.1 mill is way too much for KK and they’d have to qualify him at 6.1 next offseason AND sign Suzuki to a contract with a higher AAV

So Beauvillier and Sorokins contracts are likely done - not sure why Lou won’t make it official.

Yeah, he was at Matt Martins hockey academy on Long Island a few days ago wearing isles gear. I think his contract is something like 3.75-4.5 mill x 4-5 years.

Well, i would think that we could extend him before qualifying him at like a 5x4 or something, pretty sure that could work, plus Kk will be worth that money in the long term, for Suzuki, we can just bridge him, we should be fine

Neither team can trade an offer sheeted player until a calendar year after the deal is made official.

That checks out. No GM in their right mind would do something just to antagonize another team, without thinking it could potentially benefit their team.

Zajac, Parise, Palmieri, and Cizikas all have unannounced deals in place with the Isles.

I didn’t see anything about Zajac. Maybe it’s an AHL deal.
