You're right that's an overpay for Gussev and I'd be hesitant to pay that much players from the KHL often don't adjust to the NHL, I'd only consider him at a much lower price, Simon should stay in PIT he's a very underrated player and would fit well on Geno's LW with Galchenyuk and Kuhan rotating the wings too,one combination is bound to have chemistry.
Don't like the COL trade Casey had great numbers last year he's a fringe started and Jarry hasn't impressed (yet still loads of potential), sad to say think Jarry gets traded for a 3rd as he won't clear waivers.
JJ to OTT kinda makes sense to me, they're in a rebuild so would welcome prospects or picks and as you point out they need to hit the cap floor.
Like that you addressed JJ needs replacing I like Riikola but he's not NHL ready, I'm sure he'll get some games down the stretch with injuries maybe he'll make the jump but he's not the answer for the 3rd line LD. Haydn Fleury would be a big gamble, the guy I'd like to target would be McCabe, I don't think Hornqvist gets that done. Maybe a three-team trade with OTT again, they take some of his cap hit and we give them some more picks, the big question remains would Horny waive his NTC.
Love the depth signing of Dano didn't realise he was still out there.
No chance you get Kevin in the Burg especially for 5 mill a year he'll get an over of 6+ from NYR his favorite team.
I think they'll offer Murray 3.5 a year
Dumoulin, Brian 5 $3,750,000
Bonino, Nick 5 $3,750,000
Sheary, Conor 3 $1,000,000
Sundqvist, Oskar 2 $650,000
are all reasonable and fair offers for both sides
Overall I think you look good on Off but need to rethink the D and Goalie situation
