this deal is gonna hurt in 3-4 years, but its solid right now.
what a turnaround for CGY, from losing gaudreau and tkachuk to getting huberdeau, weegar, and kadri
unbelievable work by treliving


Here's the thing...

Next year the cap goes up $1 million.
The year after that, the cap goes up $1 million.
The year after that, the cap is expected to go up by $7 million, maybe more.

At this point, $7 million for even 60-point player will be an okay deal.

yeah but he's gotta fall off at some point. 7M for a bottom six guy with even a 100M cap isnt good
its gonna hurt in the later years. think 2026-2029

I vote No because of the lack of information.

If it's front loaded and there isn't huge bonuses (aka easier buyout) then it would be a W.

But as is, IMO Calgary is signing excellents players in their prime that will start to decline. The back end of those contracts will stink, probably including Weegar who should be next.


I agree with you, but with the expected increase in cap space in a couple of years, I don't think it will be a big deal.

Hopefully the Canucks and JT Miller can make a similar deal now.

It's not good, but it will be movable. Some team will be looking to reach the floor and will trade for him in exchange for picks.

The signing made a lot of sense for the flames, the went from a team with a questionable next couple years to a team that I think can make semis in all reality. Especially if they can dump Monahans contract. This off-season has been such a rollercoaster for this team and I love the drama.

With that said, term bites but that's a question for later

Not a good signing, he had a career year at 31, probably won't replicate and the contract is to long

Don't forget that BOTH the Lucic and Monahan deals are up after this year. So Calgary's cap situation really isn't all that bad considering the spending spree they've been on.

Happy for Calgary. The fan base deserves this. Hopefully they take a step forward this year.

Tkachuk and Gaudreau = Huberdeau, Kadri, Weegar. Not the worst transition.

What's up with all these 7 and 8 year deals? Good deal for the first half of the contract, but I smell a buyout down the road

When all this NYI rumors were circling I was on the fence as when I did the math there was another team (well besides Anaheim) that could make it work

That team was Calgary

And now with Monahan going to MTL I wonder what the return was for that. Byron? 7th round pick, FC lets wait and see

This is exactly my opinion. At the very least, they should be the favourites to win the division.

Kadri at 7 million after last year is solid value

UNFORTUNATELY

It is for 7 years. For a guy that's 31. Oof.

Also

It forced them to dump Monahan. And reports suggests it was with additional first. Double oof.

I voted no.

You're correct. Fans were thinking the Flames had to rebuilt. But no...if they had 19m allotted for Tkachuk and Gaudreau just spend that cap wisely on other players. That been said I don't like the term for Huberdeau and Kadri.

Very happy that's not a 8M$ or plus contract. However with 7 years, the last few years of his contract will be heavy on the cap space tho. Surprised he didn't sign with the NYI also with all the rumors going around


The Cap limit is gonna go up top. Think almost 4M higher than it is now

But this was factoring in Monahan on LTIR. Well we seem to have confirmed our answer

Traded to Montreal for unknown it seems.
