[3-Way Trade] Lightning acquire David Savard, Brian Lashoff; Blue Jackets acquire 2021 1st-round pick (TB), 2022 3rd-round pick (TB); Red Wings acquire 2021 4th-round pick

Love the trade! Bolts putting the pressure on other teams to buy! Makes for an interesting trade deadline weekend irregardless of what Benning or the Canucks manage to do. Here’s hoping Benning can get in on the action but should be entertaining either way.

Well if we were one of the top teams in the league and needed to find ways around the cap. If anything from where our team is you should be upset that Detroit was the team involved over us that got a pick to retain a little more salary for Tampa. However at the end of the day you can only retain on 3 contracts and maybe Benning has plans with our own trades coming up that he’ll need all his retention spots.

I didn’t say I was upset at any one of them?  I am upset we   Go look on Armchair GMs and I posted a thread suggesting the very thing about us using our LTIR space in creative ways like Detroit did.

 

Detroit just bought a 4th round pick for a tiny amount of cash.  25% of Savard’s remaining money owed minus what they saved with losing Lashoff.

Nope when u have real management group and they know what they are going and know the cap inside and out stuff like this happens

Jim Benning is probably confused and dumbfounded on how this trade went down.

 

 

No he probably isn’t.  
 

It’s a 4th round pick going to a bottom feeder that’s likely to remain a bottom feeder for awhile.  


Relax.

You can only retain on 3 contracts. Canucks still have some pieces like Sutter and Benn that are on peoples lists with a very off chance of guys like Motte and Edler. Maybe Benning didn’t want to waste one of his 3 retention spots this early for only a 4th round pick until he see’s what’s going to develop for his trade deadline.
