My initial thought was "RNH ain't signing here...", but the more I think about it, if his #1 priority is money, Seattle might be one of a very select few teams that are willing to spend next offseason. I think it's a stretch, for sure, but I think the likelihood of them signing a solid UFA is higher than previous expansion teams.
Ducks-wise, I think someone already mentioned it, but I can't imagine the Ducks paying to move Kesler. I could see them moving Mahura and a 3rd to avoid losing someone like Lundestrom though.
Leafs-wise, no need for Sandin and a 4th. Even if the goal was to keep Kerfoot (I can't imagine it's the #1 priority...his value is probably pretty similar to Dermott's, and they could probably fill the 3C hole cheaper if that was an issue), it should cost more than a 3rd or 4th + Dermott to keep him.
I don't think Philly would send York and a 1st to move JVR, but maybe? Carter Hart and Travis Sanheim are their only two major contracts to sign, and they should have space to fill out the roster. JVR is still reasonably productive, and is only signed for 2 more years post expansion draft. I'm 50/50 on this one...depends on how the teams finances are looking I guess.
For Vancouver, Seattle would be able to take Holtby for nothing (Assuming the team protects Demko). With a $6 mil cap hit (And $4 mil owed), and with how hard it seems to be to move contracts around right now, I think it'll take no less than a 1st to get them to take Loui. </div></div>
RNH--yeah it's just a shot in the dark, but I kinda feel SEA needs a couple big names or at least big personalities, and with RNH, Holtby, Subban, they kinda do that....VGK got some diamonds in the rough, but they got a bunch of great players too.... and Fleury was the face of their franchise...
ANA--nice point. ANA isn't going anywhere, and I wasn't too familiar with their prospects...
TOR-yeah some people have mentioned that. I may be underrating Dermott a bit and leafs fans may be overrating him a bit lol :)
PHI--again, not too familiar with the prospect York but JVR's contract is gonna be awful in a year or two....I laughed when it was signed...prob costs less though....
VAN--again, a good point. and VAN will need prob over 15M to sign Pettersson/Hughes
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>jpsnow13</b></div><div>Oshie, Van Riemsdyk, Subban, Erikson, Neal, Kesler and Okposo are waaaay to many cap dumps. (around 45M!!!)
Vegas only had Marchessault, Reilly and Fleury (+Clarkson on LTIR) @ 5M+.</div></div>
thing is--oshie, Neal, JVR can still play to an extent....at least for now....so they aren't cap dumps rn. they will be in a couple years--hence the payment...
Subban, kesler, Eriksson are only 1 year and if SEA takes a ton of younger or cheaper guys as I did they'll have room....
but a very fair point. I personally don't expect that many "cap dumps" but I would love to SEA take a bunch and get a king's ransom for doing it... :)
