Jersey doesn't have cap for this trade.....21 man roster, bonuses to paid will put them over the cap and reduce the cap next season.
Really is Tkachuk worth it?

No Brady trade exists that any sane GM will pay and Sens fans will find acceptable.

I like Tkachuk as a player. His value might be 8.3m contract. But he gets more attention from being a "character" on the ice than being a superior hockey player.

Because it’s not about the quantity it’s about the quality .

Sens right now are building around Sanderson, Stutzle and Tkachuk. You could add Greig and Pinto as secondary pieces as well.

You don’t move Tkachuk unless you’re getting a main young piece to build around

Don't think Marino is worth a 3rd to the Hawks because he's not needed for 4 years.

This is 6 1sts worth of value AND 33 million dollars.

Would rather sign 1 of the top UFAs to a 8 mill AAV deal and then buy 4 elite 75% retained rentals at that price

Tkachuk+League minimum for 9 mill for 4 years or for example Noah Hanifin (example of top rental)+Brandon Montour for 9 mill

He's worth his contract but is worth giving up all that for him, including trading Marino to make the cap work.

I have no idea about hockey works? You and your homerism have no idea how trades and the cap works.

Goodbye.

I think it's three more years? That timing could be just right. I lean towards accepting this deal.

OTT absolutely declines.

There's no way we can build a team around that return while losing if not the most important core piece.

Yes, you're right 3 more years. Depends on Rinzel, he's probably 2 more seasons away, and also depends if the Hawks draft Levshunov and move Murphy. A lot of "if's" for the Hawks to do this IMO.

“My homerism” lmao

I have quite the idea how the cap works . Unlike you who thinks everyone who’s close to expiring is worthless

I concur. It's interesting, for sure. This past year, along with one coming, it is/was the RD bringing along the new LD men. In two/three years, it could be the LD bringing along the new RD men!

He is worth the contract, just not worth the trade demands from fans.

He is also a bit of a hothead. About a week after Ridley Greig slapshot fiasco, Nico Hischier slid the puck into an empty net…in probably the most sporting fashion he could. It was a nothing play. Hischier is an adult, pure class. Brady went nuts and tried to fight him (and pretty much everyone on the ice). Maybe he was showing off for Uncle Fitzy, but it’s not Devils style. It was a little much…might be overselling his brand a bit.

He is worth significantly more than a 3rd. NJD will be keeping him

I was gonna say, I would offer Gustavsson for him and that 3rd for Marino trade threw me for a loop.

Your pipe dream is to run back the team that missed the playoffs because of poor goaltending, poor defense, and bad bottom 6 depth by checks notes:

worsening the defense and bottom 6?

He'll be available next offseason I expect, not this one.

This ACGM was just awful across the board.

NJDs biggest flaws this year were goaltending, bottom 6 depth, and defense. And somehow the decision was to downgrade at both D and in the bottom 6

Next year either him or Hamilton will probably be available, although Casey may play LD for a bit.

This year, he is an absolute necessity to keep as our best defensive dman, who handles our toughest minutes.
