I'm proud of Winnipeg for handling their need to fill their 2nd Line Centre hole. This deal absolutely covers our missing Centre depth, BUT the Jets are still in need of a top line Defender to add yet. PLD has family in the Jets system, his father (Eric Dubois) is a coach for the MB Moose (the Jets farm team: AHL), so I can see Dubois feeling more "at home" with this move in the near future. Coach Maurice will now have more options to run the top 3 Forward lines and how they'll adjust their Powerplay lines in the mix. I see more positive impact for the whole of the Jets team in this trade.
I'm happy for Patrick Laine, he did contribute and do well for the Jets, but never hit the ceiling he was projected for. I have a gut feeling that Laine will struggle more-so in CBJ than he did in WPG. With PL Dubois leaving CBJ, Laine won't have a top Centre to help him sniping from the slot. I can see Max Domi and Laine working well together, but we'll see how Coach Torts handles Laine's lack of NHL maturity. I wish Laine the best in his future with CBJ, good luck Laine.
Jack Roslovic got his dream come true, playing in the NHL in front of his home town. I liked his tenacity as a Forward depth player with the Jets, but I really don't believe he'll measure up to top 6 Forward material. His potential is good, but honestly not good enough for a top 6 Forward YET. Maybe the change of scenery and the location may help Jack flourish to become that player. I personally think he lacks size for his play style, but maybe Coach Torts can help him figure it out best.
Please review the following concerns discovered from the most recent Free Agent signings from NYR for non-compliance.
First, review the <a href="https://www.capfriendly.com/forums/thread/221290">NYR team page</a> and calculate the number of valid NHL and AHL contracts for verification.
From the time of posting this, NYR has indicated they have 48/50 contracts, but here are the days in Free Agency that NYR was awarded extra players that are not accounted for:
<a href="https://www.capfriendly.com/forums/thread/236421&post_id=925523">Day 1, June 19</a> - Kevin Gravel (49/50) <em>not accounted for</em>
<a href="https://www.capfriendly.com/forums/thread/236421&post_id=929116">Day 2, June 20</a> - Jamie McGinn (<em>already accounted for from 48/50</em>) + Jaycob Megna (50/50) <em>not accounted for</em>
<a href="https://www.capfriendly.com/forums/thread/236421&post_id=931492">Day 3, June 21</a> - Alex Chiasson (50/50)* <em>player has been accounted for from 48/50, but Gravel + Megna in correct order means Chiasson might be in default as 51/50. Please review to ensure accuracy. Include the <a href="https://www.capfriendly.com/forums/thread/221397&post_id=931988">NJD trade</a> and <a href="https://www.capfriendly.com/forums/thread/221397&post_id=932094">FLA trade</a> on June 22, Saturday for calculating contracts for June 21 UFA signings.</em>
<a href="https://www.capfriendly.com/forums/thread/236421&post_id=935785">Day 5, June 23</a> - Evan McEneny (51/50) <em>Contract in default and exceeds maximum 50 limit, a penalty should apply.</em>
<a href="https://www.capfriendly.com/forums/thread/236421&post_id=943414">Day 8, June 26</a> - Brandon Tanev (52/50) <em>Contract is in default and exceeds maximum 50 limit, another penalty should apply.</em>
Please review these findings and confirm my research and results, allowing no mitigation on these 50 limit contract will allow all GMs in game to exceed their own limits and create an imbalance in game that won't go unnoticed.
Thanks BoG for your assistance on this matter.
