<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>RobbieS</b></div><div>Then what happens when Dermott/Hyman are ready to return?</div></div>
Dermott makes less than Sandin who would be sent down before he burns a year off his contract anyways and Hyman only makes 1,300,000 more than JP/Mikheyev which they could make up for by carrying less players on the roster and shuffling guys back and forth from the marlies like they did last year

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>JayTea</b></div><div>Oilers send out $0 in salary, but take on $4.5m in salary for their current cap space of $2.4m at a position Ceci isn't an upgrade for them at. Makes perfect sense, Oilers accept.</div></div>
Lol I’ll be honest I didn’t look at the oilers situation. The point of the trade was to show that in order to resign Gardiner, Ceci will have to be shipped off without taking money back which should be entirely doable, but i guess apparently not to the oilers:p

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>NR1203</b></div><div>That's a lot for Gardiner. If anyone had offered him a 6m AAV he'd be signed by now. Oilers have no incentive to take Ceci, no space either, and Dubas seems to really like him (or at least want to give him a shot this year).</div></div>
All valid points and what would be my bet to likely happen is that Ceci stays and Gardiner signs elsewhere. However 6 mil would still a bargain because of the three year term. A lot of teams would pay 6 million on a 1/2/3 year deal but Gardiner understandly wants a longer term contract. If he really wants to stay a Leaf he’d need to sacrifice term because in three years the leafs will have more important issues like resigning Reilly and Sandin who should be taking over his role by then anyways.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Juice</b></div><div>1. Dubas and Pridham didn't sign Marleau. That was Lou
2. I don't think cash can be traded anymore
3. Marleau would need to agree to waive his NMC (both to get traded and to be placed on waivers)
4. I don't think this is very likely
5. Despite 1-4, it is theoretically possible. Leafs trade Marleau + something Zona likes to the Coyotes. Coyotes place him on waivers. If he clears, they buy him out. Then the Leafs re-sign him.
6. Given his low salary in the final year, it would only cost Zona $416,667 in each of 19-20 and 20-21, while the cap hit is $6,250,00 for 19-20. This could be attractive from their point of view especially if they're getting a pick or player they like
7. At 1 year and 6.25m, I am not certain Marleau would pass through waivers. So, would Marleau agree to waive his NTC knowing there's a chance he wouldn't have any control over being claimed by another team? Would zona's possible...possibly attractive from Zona and Toronto's point of view, but from everything I've read about Marleau, I can't see a sceneario where he'd waive his NTC</div></div>

Thanks, you bring up a lot of good points, I hadn’t considered anyone claiming him off waivers due his contract but that would definitely be a problem. Marleau isn’t going to waive his NTC but I had hoped Dubas could put together a sales pitch about how he could make more money and still stay with the team while increasing his chances at a cup. The more I think about it the more it seems too risky for Marleau. Really unfortunate because it could’ve been a win-win-win situation.
