Why buy out Palat if they can move his contract to a team that needs him and lets them shed the contract entirely as well as having a cap dump in Johnson.

 

because the price might be way too high. you're suggesting something reasonable, but Seattle might be demanding a 1st too to grease the wheels.

I think Toronto did the trade to give Seattle someone to take other than Kerfoot

They could have just protected Kerfoot though.

 

Holl isn’t that good. The only ones that hype him are Leafs media.

Am I the only one who thinks it's horse poo-poo that the VGK are exempt from this?  Why?  Shouldn't get special treatment after they're in.  I mean, they're allowed to trade players, etc.  So wth?

That's what a half a billion dollars buys these days apparently.

Forgive my ignorance, can someone outline the basic steps of this expansion draft?

The protection lists have been released.  The Kraken now have until Wednesday morning to make their picks among the players left exposed.  They are allowed to make side deals with the different teams.  Their picks and trades will be announced on Wednesday 5pm PT.

Yes, but you’re making an assumption that Toronto makes “Good” choices! :)

I don't get why Washington would leave Alex Ovechkin exposed. Any explanations on that?

Because he’s a UFA, and he’s not going to sign with anyone else anyway. Why waste a spot on someone who, if taken, would turn around and sign back with your team anyway?

Ah, that makes sense. I forgot about him being a UFA. So he did Washington a huge favour there.

Going through the lists on CapFriendly, there looks to be only 3 UFAs that were protected: Ullmark (BUF), Grubauer (COL) and Armia (MTL).

After protecting the 6 forwards they needed too Montreal only had 2 qualifying forwards left.  Byron and Drouin. They pretty much had to use a spot protecting Armia.  That said I hope they actually to re-sign him

its interesting to see the approach this time by GMs, basically daring Seattle to take money and term. I wonder if we'd see this sans covid, or if the cap was 87 million instead of 81.

 

The Canucks really don't have to make a deal with Seattle, which is a good place to be in. There should be some good trade opportunities for them on Thursday afternoon too.

Yep but I would still take the risk by selecting Ovi.

They don’t need to take a risk. Seattle is actually allowed to talk to unprotected UFA’s and RFA’s leading up to the selection

Seconded 

 

As well, though, some of that talent is high-priced.  Seattle has to iive under the cap too

They do, but there are some solid building blocks available to them. Yes cap space is gold right now, but I think some GM's are making mistakes in who they are protecting/exposing.

I think they should take Price.  It's a bad contract, but they can make him the face of the franchise like vegas did with Fleury and make up a lot of value in tickets and merchandise sales.  They should also take a flyer on tarasenko since there's only 2 years left on that deal. Giordano is a no brainer with only 1 year left too.  Gourde should be the tampa pick.  Lots of intriguing names on this list compared to the list vegas chose from.  I'll be very interested too see which underperforming big name contracts they choose to take.
