      1. Cirelli, Anthony
      Additional Details:
      Cirelli is undoubtedly better, and has more value than, Adrian Kempe despite putting up less points then him last year, while playing with better players. But Tampa realizes they won't be able to extend Cernak, Sergachev, and Cirelli, so they trade Cirelli for Kempe, Carl Gundstrum, and a 4thround pick. LA does it because they get a top 6 player

      This isn't a remotely good idea? TB is in position to do something that hasn't been done since 1983 they also figure out salary cap when they have to. Btw they aren't moving Cirelli cheap he like Gourde the regular season the year before just had a lot of bad luck.

      Winnipeg can't afford Palat even at 50% retained. But if they could, it's doubtful they give up Vesalainen for him. Maybe the 3rd by itself, but that would be about it.

      Don't Palat and Maroon have trade protection?
      If so doubt they waive for Winnipeg but maybe, I'm sure Tampa could get more for those two from another team though.

      Why do you say that Maroon resigns for min. Palat likely takes a stay in Tampa Bay discount, but after 3 Cups if they're lost so f***ing what

      Hold up buddy. Your not winning next year. You lost Gourde, Coleman, and Goodrow. And gained.. Bellemare??? First round exits. If Vasilevsky is going Vezina mode, then maybe 2nd

      You very much underestimate the lightning player development

      Possibly. Barre-Boulet seems promising, perhaps a top 6 player by sometime next year. Cal Foote as well, still has very high potential. I don’t think Ross Colton will climb any higher, but I haven't watched him, so I don't know.

      Verheage, Marchessault, both go to Florida just 2 examples of guys being held back because simply no spot on Tampa Bay roster for them. Colton and Joseph both are really good.

      There are other players who could come into the roster and do what colton did last year
