Yep. 450,000 to spend on three roster spots.
Do you think a middling Avs team would pick up an aging expensive Martin for two second rounders?
Philly could have signed Ward. Now a year later they are to give up two draft picks?

No you have to reduce the cap in better ways.

You really need to understand this, Palhal, since many users have seen it as a recurring comment from you: teams do not have to carry the maximum 23 players. They can send down players to their farm teams and bring them up as they please. Only 12 forwards, 6 dmen, and 2 goalies are needed for NHL games. I do concede that in a perfect world, this team would like to have more cap room, but it's just an idea of how it'd stand if things ever went anywhere near this direction.

Yes. Given that COL gave two 2nd rounders for an aging and much worse player in Brad Stuart, Paul Martin going to the Avs for two 2nd rounders isn't an unreasonable proposal.

The argument that "oh if this team wanted him they could've signed him in FA" is absurd since multiple teams can show interest and give offers but the player at the end of the day can accept only one team's offer. So it doesn't necessarily mean that only the team that the player signed for was the only team interested. You follow?

At the end of the day, these are just for fun man. Keep the rosters reasonable, but don't overanalyze.

Hey Stormm, why don't you comment in his thread instead of creating a new thread to just ask a question that might be answered ....no. Might help keep the forum a little cleaner. Just my opinion.

The one thing that needs to change more than anything with the Wild going forward is to eliminate soft players and add grit. This roster does nothing to accomplish either. No chance Fontaine is back with the Wild next year!

You sound like one of those Rangers fans that think Boyle has been a problem but Girardi hasn't. The arguments against Boyle have been ridiculous. Girardi's been so bad it shouldn't even be a discussion but ya know he's a "warrior" and got "toughness". You see MacKinnon make G look like a fool the other night and let up a goal? He belongs on the third line and playing MAYBE ten minutes a night.
Also Boyle would fetch more than a 7th haha but he's not going anywhere

I can't deny that Girardi is bad, but a lot easier to trade Boyle than him. Rangers signed Girardi to a bad contract and now we got to deal with it.

Reading many of these replies as well as other reports, I still hold out hope that Saad will sign his new contract on a bridge deal for the good of his team. Yes, on the open market he could demand $5+M. And he just might be worth that ballpark amount right now as a Blackhawk. But realizing he WILL get top dollar in two short seasons, for the sake of potentially being a four time Cup winner by then, I believe a "HTD" in the $3.5M range may be in his best interests at this juncture. JMO.


why sign him to a bridge deal? If they can lock him up for 5-6 years at 5.5 mil I would take that in a heartbeat. Bridge deal lets his value grow more and he commands more money.
Basically, because of timing. The cap space simply is not there this summer.

Cumiskey is for depth on d. We don't know if/when tvr will get hurt or any other d man. We know what we have in him. And no one in the pipeline to step up.. Unless Erhof signs for 1.75 no need to look elsewhere.


Still, you can sign a vet dman for 1.75, keep versteeg and get rid of nordstrom and pay kruger 250k less and you have space (like 50k leftover). That puts rundblad as the 7th d and keeps the starting 6 good.
