<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>AceCane</b></div><div>I can see DK taking another team friendly contract 2-3yr 2-3mil/swayman 3-4yr 2-3mil/Zacha 2-3yr 3.5-4.5mil/ Fredrick 1-3yr 2-3mil/ Pasta 7yr 8-8.5mil(21mil) but given expiring contracts like Craig Smith, Chris Wagner, and Connor Clifton you would have more than enough to resign depth players and if you want given Bergeron signs another very friendly team deal, and at the end of the day you could still sell Wheeler if hes producing still for good price given Jets hold 50% of contract</div></div>
DK is 37. He’s not signing 2-3 year deal.
Pasta wants 8 years100m. That’s 12.5. Market has been set. He does not come in at less than 9.5 per.
Those expiring contracts are a non factor. They were already gone and off the books.
It just not feasible.
I created an ACGM for next year.
Signed Pasta-10. Zacha-5. Sway-4. Frederic-2. Brought up Lysell, Beecher, Studnicka, Greer for cheap options to fill roster.
At that point they were 1m under the cap with a 21 man roster and no allowance for bonus overages.
They will have to move contracts in order to sign Bergy and DK if they choose to continue and make improvements , like Reilly, Forbort, Coyle, Ullmark as possibilities.
Taking on extra to this mess is just not an option.
Good talking to you. 👍🏻 I gotta get to bed, long day tomorrow.
