<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>palhal</b></div><div>You just can't move up players to the lineup. The guys that is injured still counts against the cap unless in goes on LTIR which is a minimum of 10 games.</div></div>

teams are allowed emergency call-ups https://www.dkpittsburghsports.com/2019/10/12/nhl-standard-emergency-recall-rules-differences-tlh

"Emergency conditions apply when a team “is reduced below the level of two goalkeepers, six defensemen and 12 forwards,” per the CBA."

"This means that even if a team has enough players to dress, say, seven defenseman and 11 forwards, as teams sometimes do by choice with a healthy roster during the season, it's still considered an emergency situation. If a team doesn't have enough players for four forward lines and three defense pairings, even if they have 18 total healthy skaters otherwise, it's an emergency situation.
Example: The Penguins used three emergency recalls on forwards because they did not have 12 healthy forwards, even though they were carrying extra defensemen."

this could be applied if say Dermott got injured but they still have 13 fwds

I'm not sure how emergency recalls affect the cap, I couldn't find it in writing, but I know the leafs have used them in prior years when they were near the cap and were still compliant. If I had to guess, it would be similar to LTIR in which they'd be allowed to go over the cap with the recalled player but they cannot accumulate cap space in that time period.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Trevorchef</b></div><div>I will add to that....

If Hyman does indeed get to UFA status after the expansion draft is over and the Leafs have not offered him a contract.... There will be a team that offers him a multi-year deal at 6+ million.

You can take that to the bank.</div></div>

this was made under the assumption that Hyman takes a hometown discount. This is why I hate leafs fans/media with contract talks. DO you think Blake Coleman should make 6+ million? Because Coleman and Hyman seem like pretty good comprables to me.

- both are versatile gritty wingers who drive possesion
- Hyman past 2 seasons and this season: 0.34g/gp ; .64p/gp
- coleman past 2 seasons including this one: 0.31g/gp ; 0.5 p/gp

Goal scoring they are about the same, Hyman gets points at a higher rate but He's played with the big 4 for a lot of it. Coleman played 2 yrs in NJ, I doubt he spent as much time with talented player.

not to mention a flat cap where term contracts won't account for a rising cap and teams flat out don't have money to spend. we saw ufa's take a significant haircut last summer, a year where owners burned cash and most term deals have money loaded for next season and beyond, I don't see most Owners willing to dish out that kind of money. If covid never happend sure I could see Hyman getting 6 in free agency. but look at some of last years deals with some good wingers (Granlund - 3.75, Duclair - 1.7, Hoffman 4, Namesnikov 2).

IMO Hyman gets max 4.75 x 5

if I was Dubas I would wnt this term based on the cost:

under 3.75; 7-8 years. frontload, make it easy to buyout at yr 5+ or trade
3.75 - 4; 6 years, still frontload
4 - 4.5; 4-5 years
4.5 - 5; max 4 years, i'd push hard for 3
above 5: have a nice life Zach
