2nd Favourite Team

2- You randomly selected picks that would cost several million more than 18M to pay for. But yeah, you have a good one, too.</div></div>
do you not understand how the salary cap works?
I have 18M to spend THIS YEAR. Pretending that the Ladd, Marleau, and Gostisbehere contracts all aligned this year, that would cost 16.25M THIS YEAR. And with that, I still have 1.75M left over. The year after that, sure I would still have Ladd and Gostisbehere on the books, but at that point, I have another 18M in cap space for that year (or whatever the numbers would actually be).
Plus those 3 cap dumps acquired more picks than what I traded for at the beginning.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>mokumboi</b></div><div>1- Ladd = 2x5.5 = 11M
Marleau = 1x6.25 = 6.25M
6.25M + 11M = 17.25M
So yeah, sorry, I was off by less than 1M. My bad. The point stands.
2- Regardless of what he was sent off for or why, he is still a very useful player. He may have been a cap removal for the Flyers, but he is not a cap eat for Arizona. The fact that they got him along with sweet prizes is a sign that Philly was dumb and panicked, not that Ghost was a straight cap eat.
Correct. Jarvis was taken 13th, which is very much mid.
Mid is lower than high.</div></div>
all im saying in regards to ladd and marleau is that 5.5 + 6.25 is only 11.75 per year, which is much less than the 18M I have in cap space on this team.
In regards to the Gostisbehere situation, there is a chance with the minimal rise in salary cap this upcoming year, another team may panic like the flyers. All im saying is that the return picks that I almost randomly selected are well within the realm of possibility. I'm done with debating though, so enjoy what is left of your day!
