2nd Favourite Team

They are great team with and without Marner. Hopefully Marner is there for a whole year, but if not, they are fine.</div></div>
People need to realize that Kerfoot is a significant downgrade on Kadri though. I get the Toronto media propaganda. But he's not the kind of player that will drive the play from the 3rd line.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>EthanK24</b></div><div>My thinking is that Reilly is worth more than a 4th, and IMO Calgary needs to clear cap so badly that other teams probably wouldn’t give up any value for Frolik. If they were willing to give up value, I think he’d probably be gone by now. That said, I don’t think that this is a bad deal for the habs by any means.</div></div>
I did entertain the possibility of a higher pick. But I don't think Calgary fans would like it all that much. But that'd probably be an amazing return if the Habs could pull this off:
Reilly (Retained $400,000 by the Habs, meaning that if he doesn't work for the team, they can bury him in full in the AHL. for this year and next.)
WPG's 2020 4th rd pick
CLG's 2020 2nd rd pick
That would effectively clear up almost $3.7M off of Calgary's salary cap.
Then at the TDL, Montreal goes and trade Frolik for another 2020 2nd rd pick by retaining half of his salary for the remainder of the season. (Meaning, Reilly, cap space, & WPG's 4th rd pick become 2 2nd round picks)
