    I may be reading it incorrectly, but are the Devils receiving anything in return for Tatar?

    They are, it's in my anaheim page that I cannot post. Devils trade Tatar to Anaheim as part of a John Gibson deal. Full deal (which is visible in the ANA page that I can't post yet) is:

    NJD acquires G John Gibson, D Josh Mahura from ANA for RW Chase Stillman, 2023 NJD 1st (top-3 protected), G Mackenzie Blackwood, and LW Tomas Tatar.

    A few critiques: no way NAK gets anything remotely resembling that. He’s an RFA that was a waiver wire claim, Sakic is a notorious hard negotiator with those guys, personally I think he gets a 1yr $1.25M prove it deal. Nichushkin won’t get an 8 yr deal especially at $6M, look what Rust and Coleman for comps. Kuemper unless he just goes monster mode the last 2 rounds he isn’t getting that. Markstrom and Binnington are the easy comps. Sakic has said keeping the 23 1st is a priority so they won’t trade it for a Tatar Shattenkirk package. AJ Greer will never play in COL for reference check out what happened in MIL when he was prospect. Ben Meyers is a lock for the bottom 6 as is Maltsev probably. Manson is very likely to be back. Creative but lots of over pays.

    Forgot about the Greer stuff, thanks for the reminder!

    You also raise reasonable questions about the costs of these RFA's, I just happened to be relying on Evolving Hockey's contract projections while also trying to keep things in line with the rest of the market with the whole 32 team mock offseason. Also with trading that 2023 1st I didn't realize Sakic said he wanted to keep it, so good note there. I do think the trade itself is decent value though with Anaheim retaining on both players, getting a top-4 D and middle-6 winger with a proven scoring record at those cap hits will help Colorado a lot.

    Fair I mean you were using data from a good modeling. The ANA trade though the last thing COL really needs to do is be spending high end assets on a top 4 caliber dman when they have Makar Toews Byram and Girard, and while they are both left shots Girard and Byram can play on the right side, or even better just use the cap space acquired in the trade instead to get Manson back. Kudos though that’s a lot of work and honestly the only real miss you had was Meyers that pretty good. Good job, love ACGM’s that stir good conversation.
