They have to take someone right.

 

Pearson

Beagle 

Myers 

Rooster

Holtbust

 

Anyone they take is a plus for us

Beagle only has a year left.  FAR more attractive on that fact alone than Pearson imho.

Hypothetical scenario.

 

He walks because we didnt sign him to this contract. Proceeds to sign with the leafs for this contract. Lights us up and has a career year.

 

Sound familiar??

risk I was just fine with. Covid cap has created a lot of leverage for GMs, I just think Jim didn't need to rush into this one, I just don't see a lot of teams offering him something this good.

 

Its not a crippling deal by any means, just a bit disappointing.

Well no expansion protection means they do plan to expose him. 500k less then he was currently making. He’ll be just shy of 32 before the contract expires. The more I think about it, it’s not a bad deal. Just average.

Well, the bitters on twitter seem to think we can’t afford Pettersson or Hughes now :picard:

They would just take Lind or an Utica guy.

I doubt that. Lind maybe. Which I assume benning would send them a pick to not take lind. Even if they did. I dont think lind is any more than a pearson at best.

How does he still have authority do make the same mistakes over and over again.

 

We need a 3C and Top 4 RHD.... so let’s sign a middle six winger to significant money and term.

 

Oh, and let’s do it at a time where it uses up a protection slot during expansion.

 

Oh, and let’s do it when we have a bunch of those contracts on the books that have gone terribly, leaving us with no cap space.

 

Oh, and let’s do it in a flat cap world where there will be similar level players available in the summer for 1 year, $1 million contracts.

Well, I wouldn't worry about the protection slot unless this somehow comes with an NMC (EDIT: and of course it doesn't). It's possibly an amount Seattle would pass on so we could leave unprotected - and if he is grabbed then oh well.

 

But yeah, I'd have been interested in what we could replace him with out of the potential quality of players teams can't fit under their cap.

Really the only thing left to say is our official CDC 2021 catch phrase:

A 40 point player who plays a style we need. Cup pedigree and a leader. That's what he's worth folks. In the minority but I'm happy to have him here for three more years. He has great chemistry with Bo so go with the player you know works. 

He's currently on pace for ~27 points over an 82 game season...

We didn’t need more “bait” for the kraken 

we should be begging them to take some of Jim’s past stupidity.

“2 years away” lol not with this idiot running the team.

How do they expect the team to improve? Podkolzin & Rathbone?

actually yes, those guys will be great ELC additions.

I don't see Travis Green giving a rookie D alot of rope.

 

edit:  actually *any* rope
