Scheifele and Ehlers have a combined cap hit lower than McDavid.

great term. with inflating cap hits, this is going to be a major steal

Good to get him down now. Could have really inflated after another big season.

This is the time the Jets should make a push even if they keep to an internal cap

Laine might become the Jets' highest paid when it gets negotiated next season.
Scheifele = $6.125 for 7 seasons more
Byfuglien = $7.6 for 4 seasons more

Fortunately Buffy's NMC becomes a no-trade list of 14 teams once next season begins

This strikes me as a contract that will really work out for Winnipeg, because Ehlers is only going to get better, and will be worth a contract worth $10 million a year like Eichel in the future (7 years)

Take notes Oilers. This will be the real Canadian dynasty team. Their generational talent may not be the same, but this is what good management can do for you.
