Team: 2021-22 Edmonton Oilers
Team Explanation
The general idea was to find and sign pieces, which probably don't have a big cap hit (except for Hyman (more or less a safe thing) and the Goalie).

    If you drop Carolina's 3rd, they consider it. As it is, they don't need to think twice about rejecting.

    What on earth has Hakanpää done to deserve that contract or that roster spot? He's a 3rd pairing / 7th defenseman on a playoff team.

    The pens still aren’t paying for your cap dumps. The point of this site is to be realistic. So the pens counter with McDavid for Matheson and Zucker

    In fairness would you be shocked if Holland handed that contract out?

    Yes.


    Don’t think you should be after some of the moves he’s made this offseason and in the past.

    His overpays have always been for veteran players, usually with playoff pedigree, no? Hakanpää is neither, so yes I'd be shocked if he handed out this contract to an unproven commodity.

    Yes they are both 1 in the same. Expecting the pens to pay for Edmonton’s cap dumps is just as bad as the pens expecting the Oilers to pay for it the pens cap dumps. I’m glad you understood the context. 👍
