You're asking a player to move from a zero personal income tax state in a flat cap, double escrow world. I'm telling you, Tampa is going to have to HAVE to look at players who don't have restrictions but have high AAV. Not saying Tampa WANTS to move Point, but they may not have a choice, and value has little to do with it.</div></div>
Actually, Killorns M-NTC should be kicking in this year. And Johnsons and Palats are kicking in in the 2021-2022 season. And if I remember correctly, a NTC can be selected in the draft. So with the expansion draft at the end of the year, we could pay Seattle to take Gourde or McDonagh. I'd prefer to lose McDonagh because Sergachev should be ready for second line minutes and McDonaghs M-NTC doesn't kick in for another 5 years. And even though hes good right now, I don't think he will be the same player in 5 years and 6.75 million locked into him will hurt us. If we move someome like Killorn, Paquette, and Mchelleniny, that would free up about 7 mil which is enough to sign Cirelli to a 4 for 3 years(just guessing the contracts) and cernak for 2.5 for 2 years. we could also pickup a few cheap contracts/ play a few rookies. And i know its unrelated but I would really like to sign Jimmy Howard to a cheap 1 year deal because I wanna give him 1 more chance, I liked him alot.
Im sorry but this is awful. Why would they move Point, who was just a beast in the playoffs, a top ten center, and on amazingly team friendly deal, just because he is expiring in two years? Don't forget he is still very young. Sure, they are over the cap, but I think you forget we can try to move Killorn, Palat, Gourde, and Johnson. Don't forget that we can even pay Seattle to take a bigger contact before Points contract ends. There is a reason no on on ACGM is talking about moving point, its because it makes zero sense.
