True enough. Got some fugly ones. 

One. And a few, short term, inconsequential 'meh' ones.

 

They also have Horvat and Edler's extensions and traded for the lovely hit Miller has.

30 points and we all pray he stays healthy and I'm happy. 

Health hasnt been an issue for the last 2 years, but 7 million for 30 point defenseman... Gross

Health was never an issue of Brandon Sutter until he laced them up for Vancursed

Id rather take Zaitsev and Kapanen in a trade if possible. At least his term is manageable and he will fill a roll.

How many points would TM need to get next season to make people feel okay if we signed him to a 7 x 7 agreement? Keep in mind he's only had over 40 once in his rookie year.... This alone should scare the hell out of you. 

Don't care about points, I want someone who can defend and prevent goals.  I don't think offense is going to be a major issue this year, if they can stay healthy.

Ya. Its not ideal but when you fail to draft and develop your own this is what happens. If Meyers is out mainstay for years, Eddy for a bit, Hughes can be Hughes, Stetch, Woo, Rathbone, OJ. Some hoping in there but it's a start.

We aren’t getting Myers for that.  We aren’t getting Gardiner for that either.  

The term will be 6 or 7 years.  The cap will be 7 to 8 million.  

I bet 7 mill per over 5 years.

I think most people would be happy with that.

 

Term is gonna be key if we sign him.

Would be ideal. Bet its six years though.

I am more interested in no nmc and a non buyout proof contract structure. Those are what really make for boat anchor contracts. Give him the extra year and a bit more money but win on these JB.

Since 2011 our defensemen haven’t scored more than 34 pts and our offense has struggle.  Offense start with strong D and good breakout/puck movement. We don’t necessarily need a Karlsson (although we can’t ask Hughes to do it alone either) but we do need better puck movement from our back end.

 

so if you do want to fully take advantage of our firepower upfront we do need to upgrade the backend.

I'll go as far as $5.75M for 5 years...if he wants more, then pass and go hard to bring Tryamkin back a year earlier for $3M per for 2 years to "a show me contract"...signing bonus to support Tryamkin buying his existing contract. 

 

JB needs to lose the fixation of the "kid in a candy store"...he should not over pay for Myers.

Agree on puck movement, no question.  But, they don't need to focus on offense generated by dmen, I think the fwd group will be a higher scoring group than last year, if they can stay healthy.  I'm not saying offense from the backend isn't important, I just don't think they should go points shopping.  A good two way RHD should be the ideal.

There have been no players we have missed out on because we were against the cap

You can't know that for sure. If somebody has only $10, they sure as heck not going to be able to bid $11.

Keep dreaming.   Market value isn't even 5.75 for him.  Elite defenseman or forwards are going for 9.5-11 per.  Next tier between 8-9 per.  Then next tier is 6-7.5  That's where Myers is at.

I’d take that. 7mill in years 6&7 is almost a slam dunk to come back and bite us but I can handle that over 5.
