      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Signing] Sharks re-sign Chris Tierney

Posted (edited)

If he improves off last year this could be a really good deal for the Sharks.

Agreed.  Makes CGY Lindholm contract look bloated imo.

Lindholm put up basically 4 consecutive 40 point seasons and is a year younger. Tierney had a bit of a breakout year, so I'd say this is a bridge deal to see if there is consistency. After two seasons, if Tierney maintains his production or is better, we will see how much he makes in comparison. If Lindholm improves, then his contract will look excellent in a couple of years.

Not too surprising. Both coming in far too high and far too low. He’s worth $5.5M-$6M. He’ll sign for that.

Generally in these cases, the team will under-offer and the player will over-ask and both sides should be happy with somewhere in the middle. So yeah it's not surprising and I agree with your numbers. The question is can Winnipeg maintain that cap space with other players' contracts coming up soon?

Easily. The cap will continue to increase, and the general thought in Winnipeg is they’ll offload Perreault or Little (probably Little). They won’t fair value for him, but they can afford to lose value on a trade there to make room for upcoming increases. And Tyler Myers’ contract will also be coming off the books after this season, so they’ll have room.

 

It won’t be “pretty”, but that’s also where their solid drafting beyond the first round  comes into play. Replace those players with others and have everyone chip in by committee. Just ensure you keep the core together.
