<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>pharrow</b></div><div>this isn't true. He got moved this summer in a flat cap world and the contract length isn't that much of a deal breaker. It's not like Guddy didn't get moved with 2 years left, he did. Yes Matheson is a little more of a cap hit, but he's a better player than Gudbranson. There is no doubt about that. The contract is reasonable value wise. Is the length long, 5 years is a bit no doubt but he's young. So the length really shouldn't be an issue. Every year he's on a team that issue gets smaller and if he keeps playing well the term is actually a benefit not a problem.
Too many teams looking for defense. That contract is more than moveable.</div></div>

Again his contract wasn’t as long or expensive lol. He’s only got 1 year left of his 3 year deal that’s paying him 3 million in salary and only a 4 million cap hit compared to the 4.85 million that Matheson has as a cap hit. Got traded to a team with a ton of cap space that just needed a filler. I bet you could ask any gm other than Rutherford in the offseason, “if you had to trade for one who would you rather trade for, Gudbranson or Matheson?” Every one says Gudbranson. Because he is cheaper in salary, in cap, and a pending UFA. Only crap teams with cap space would even possibly take MM and he has an 8 team NTC that kicks in next year making it almost impossible to trade him unless he continues to play well and doesn’t revert back to a clusterf**k.
The length wouldn’t be an issue if he didn’t have a history of being terrible and coming off a few years of being terrible. I think he needs to play well for a year or so before the length of that contract isn’t as big of an issue. But right now he is realistically a 3rd pair dman making almost 5 million in cap hit. That’s not that reasonable. Considering our top LD and number 2 LD and our number 2 RD make less (and I’m talking about Marino’s next contract not his ELC).

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ZiggyPalffy</b></div><div>You're an idiot. Almost everyone knows Sam Bennett just needs a change of scenery, at least half the teams would give him a shot if the price was right and they had a spot for him. Hence all the Bennett trades on here all the time.

Look up how good "over the hill" Jeff Carter is doing and watch him, he's the fastest he's ever been. He's also 50% retained. If you think 3Mx2 Jeff Carter is a bad contract then you really shouldn't be on this site. May I recommend Twitter?

Lastly, Rinne has a 916 save percentage despite being on an awful Predators team. If you haven't heard, Hextall wants to add a goalie with playoff experience.

Again, do you know who your GM is? I happen to know a lot about Hextall as he's been with the Kings most of his executive career.....</div></div>

So they are all GM’s? And again, if that’s all he needed then he’d have been traded for by now. The reason he hasn’t been though is because it’s a huge risk. I mean they all said the same about galchenyuk and then the pens trade for him and he sucks even worse.

I’m absolutely thrilled for Jeff Carter. However he still only has 3 goals. He is still 36 going to be 37 next year. And I don’t recall saying his contract was bad. I said he is over the hill and likely having a fluky year and that the pens aren’t in the business right now of trading youth for players that are almost 40.

I’m also absolutely thrilled for Rinne too. However trading a goalie for a goalie isn’t adding a goalie. It’s replacing one. If he wants to use a pick to obtain a goalie, then sure. But to use a 1st when goalies rarely have that value unless they are elite starters and add the current backup that has another year on his contract for cheap would be counterproductive for how HEXTALL AND BURKE have said they want to make their mark on this team. LA and Pittsburgh are in TOTALLY different positions.
