VGK trade - cap help

Created by: MTLaveragefan
Team: 2024-25 Montreal Canadiens
Initial Creation Date: May 10, 2024
Published: May 10, 2024
Salary Cap Mode: Basic
Description
Get some good "cycle/forecheck" players.

The team needs talents up front... and more size and speed in the bottom 6. These type of checking line are draining on opposing teams and will often be constituted of guys who are PK specialist as well.

A guy like Nic Roy would be perfect on a line with a guy like Armia.

Then lets get Perry back to play with Armia and recreate that Armia -Staal- Perry playoff line that dominated the leafs.

Put Anderson on waiver to go work on himself in the AHL like Armia did. Sink or swim. Let's hope it works - because he is good when he is ON... not the floating cardio machine he has become.

  1. Roy, Nicolas
Additional Details:
Vegas will have a cap problem this summer.

With Eichel, Hertl and one of Stephenson/Karlsson... Roy becomes an expensive 3rd/4th line center.

Evans can do the job (will score less - but he is great defensively) at 1.7M$, which is saving you 1.3M$ you can put toward depth or resiging players.
VGK

I love Roy, I think he's awesome but, he's not that awesome to give all that up.

I'd think the Winnipeg 1st alone is more than fair, especially to a team in a cap crunch

I also think William Karlsson, Howden, Barbashev and Hill are more likely to be cap casualties

I would prob run with Dach and Dvorak as the centers (if Roy would come over) for the PK.

I wouldn't say frail... more unlucky.

The wrist incident was a freak accident... same with the Knee.

PK units moving beyond this year could get into Suzuki + Beck (4th line, internal option).
Whether or not Roy is the way they want to go for 3rd line C moving forward becomes the questions I guess
