Tampa needs dmen (they'll need 3-4 this offseason), and only have $10mm in cap space total (they need to sign 6-7 players overall, including Point). You could slide Daley into that mix, maybe do some retention (taking back Callahan and retaining a $1-1.5mm on Daley), which would give them $6-7mm of cap relief. Maybe have TBL throw in another pick (or upgrade to a 1st). They then go to $17mm in space, with only 5-6 bodies to sign.
Also, I don't expect DET will buyout Ericcson. The cap crunch will be coming to them somewhat after next season, and a buyout will extend E's hit 2 seasons, when they'll need space for AA, Bert, and Mantha. If they are going to do anything with E, they'll bury him.</div></div>
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Jfstompers</b></div><div>yeah I tend to agree they probably float ericssson on the roster for his last season. Kronwall is kind of a mystery to me. honestly he played well enough that at cheap money getting him for deoth doesn't seem terrible. I like chariots game a lot. hes improved and isn't a bad guy back there. he probably slips threw the cracks for Winnipeg I hope and we benefit. at this point I dont have any faith in us developing dmen so id rather throw numbers at the issue.</div></div>
Not sure Anaheim looks to move Perry at the expense of a pick, I think they're at the point where they'll have to wait out their bad contracts and look to rebuild a core through the draft. The Callahan trade on the other hand is much more realistic. I really like the idea of taking on a couple of contracts from Toronto or Tampa to give them some desperately needed immediate cap relief.
