But why not just take Dillon for two 2nds? Is a big trade incoming between Caps and Kraken?

They would be lucky to get a 2nd for him.

Francis did a mistake by not drafting and flipping Dillon and lost at least a 2nd as a result.

The lack of deals from Seattle with their picks is surprising- as it worked amazingly for Vegas, within a week they have already screwed up by not drafting/trading both Dillon and Bean.

Bold Take, he is going to be inconsistent with this contract and it's going to be bought out in 2025 or 2026, I'm hope I wrong

So the plan for "Weaponizing Cap Space" was overpaying Free Agents you don't really need from the beginning

Good for Gru getting his payday, but why would he leave a cup contender for a team that's going to be average in a weak Pacific?

Slightly lower save percentage than Mrazek.
Slightly lower than double Mrazek's salary.

avs offseason has been fine. They got the 2 biggest pieces out of the way in Landeskog and Makar. Getting Solid assets for Graves was a good move, they were losing a player in the XD no matter what but have the internal replacements already.

Seattle tampering talking to Grubauer during the XD while protected sucked, but it is what it is. Avs are not wasting money on bad signings

Could of had Price for only four more. Also, Kuemper to Colorado


Could have had a 4 year older price whi grubauer has played better than in all situations except this year's playoffs for the last three years

The fact that he's making less than Markstrom and barely more than Demko is bizarre. Dude is in his prime and coming off a Vezina nomination and has been a high end goalie for a few years straight.

I can hear all the Colorado fans crying at this moment. Many of them despised him and now they're in a tough situation in goalie position. Sakic thinks Landeskog was more important than a great goalie. Now HE PAYS THE PRICE of his bad choice. As I said: NO good goalie = NO cup.

I anticipate they'll just swap his salary from year 3 & 4. Instead of 5-6-7.5-6.8-5.6-4.5 they'll do 5-6-6.8-7.5-5.6-4.5.
I'm not positive about other rules that might break (can 7.5-5.6 happen during adjacent seasons?)
If not, 5-6-7.25-6.8-5.6-4.75?

With the benefit of hindsight, I have decided to vote "no" on this contract.
