<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>sensibleguy</b></div><div>I disagree with DenisPotvin, but I understand why he has his opinion.
Compher is a pedestrian 3C, making good 3C money, but he's not overpaid enough to be considered a negative value.
Donskoi is a weak 2nd line winger, making solid 2nd line winger money, but he's also not overpaid enough to be considered a negative value
Neither have much trade value during this flat cap, but they are definitely not negative values. They are both worth much more to Colorado than they are to other teams in a trade.
Donskoi's 45% shooting percentage is probably not sustainable</div></div>
Donskoi IMO is really a very good third-liner. He's injury-prone and struggles massively against big, strong teams (meaning in the playoffs there are going to be times when he's a completely dead weight).
Plus, for both players, it isn't just the money, but the term. We're seeing UFAs signing incredible bargain deals in a flat-cap world. That's what you have to compare it to. I'd much rather have Haula over Compher (never mind at half the price) or Toffoli over Donskoi. There are a lot of players who can bring similar on-ice value at a *much* lower cost. I may be wrong, but it seems like Colorado would love the cap space way more than they would Compher or Donskoi.
