Salary retention

Created by: Shaun80
Team: 2023-24 Calgary Flames
Initial Creation Date: Feb. 22, 2024
Published: Feb. 22, 2024
Salary Cap Mode: Basic
Description
Everyone says Calgary won't retain salary on players due to the fact that they've only done it once before. No one takes into account that salary retention has only been a thing since the 2012-13 season. So in the 10 previous seasons Calgary only sold at the deadline in 3 of those seasons. Only 2 of the players they traded had large cap hits, Iginla and Bouwmeester. Pittsburgh added 12 million worth of cap hits at that deadline, and St Louis added 10 million. Both teams didn't need retention to add them so why would they pay extra for it? 5 of the other seasons the Flames were buyers and 2 they did nothing. The current version of the Flames is in a much different situation then the teams of the past decade, the flat cap has pretty much every team right up against the cap making it pretty much impossible to move a player without retaining salary.

Most people won't agree with me, but about the only difference i see between Boston and Calgary is Pasta. Defense is about the same, depth scoring is the same,both teams are getting great goal tending. Calgary just lacks that one difference maker.


McAvoy is better than any defender that Calgary has and I’d argue that you don’t have the equivalent or Marchand either, but I don’t see Calgary as a bad team.

Boston’s record is probably better than they are as a team, but I think the two goalies plus Pasta is a massive advantage

The open issue is you are paying Huberdeau to be that star. Are your owners serious about winning? Investing in facilities?

Yeah I agree with the Huberdeau statement, and if he had another 30 points this year we'd probably be in a play off spot.
Other then our new rink being built (started work on the infrastructure a few weeks ago), I really couldn't tell you about the facilities. Everything I hear is always talking the scouting staff, trainers etc up, only knock i ever hear is the old building. But who really knows what's true.
Good game so far tonight, great goal tending on both sides.
Not so sure I want Lohrei any more, thought it was pronounced Lori lol doesn't roll off the tongue the way the announcer says it.

Congrats on the win. Fun game to watch. Overtime was entertaining. Thought Lohrei was going to win with that shot off the cross bar

Thought you guys were going to take it in the 3rd. Couldn't believe Markstrom played the puck with all the tired flames out there. Good game
