Honestly, that seems like a pretty good deal for Makar IMO. Hilarious that he's cheaper than Jones and Makar just finished 2nd in Norris voting. Jones didn't receive a single vote and has never been higher than 4th in Norris voting. I would put market value for Makar at closer to $10M right now. I expect him to be a top 10 D for the next 10 years or so. A lot of value and I think he took a discount. I'm betting 4 years from now we look at this as one of the better deals in the NHL.

As a UFA for sure Makar would be around 10.   Personally I think the NHL is entering a world of hurt if they keep overpaying their RFAs.  Tavares and Doughty and EK were all paid fairly, and Doughty was a constant bridesmaid, EK was the best of his generation/league while an RFA.    Making peanuts cap percentage wise to Makar has done so far.   Given its flat cap we are entering the realm of surreal.   Blue chip stars are taking more and more of the cap each year, and the middle class is paying for it.   EKs comments about not knowing he was entering another rebuild, same with Kane and Toews etc are just dumbfounding.   When they take that much of the cap, what can they expect?

But at least they deserved it whether or not they are earning it now, their RFA deals all contributed to their teams chances of success.  Just like BB and Horvats are now. 

 

QHs hasn't earned much more then 6x8 right now, and 5-5.5x3.   Must have dollar signs and plans galore now.   I'm not fond of this deal at all.   Heiskanen is a little better though.  

 

Edit:  Have EP and QHs really had more impact then BB had for us?  EP maybe.   QHs .. not really.

In the Ekmann-Larson trade thread people were furious when they found out a 2nd round pick was included and said what a waste of assets. "How can we throw away picks like this when our prospect cupboards are so bare!?!"

 

Yet we have a second round pick on the brink of making the NHL after devolping for a few years and people are so quick to disregard him. How ironic! 

 

It's not about Kole Lind overall as much as it is about asset management and how dumb if a move it was.

 

Yea people writing off Kole Lind is ridiculous. That's a #33 pick and 4 years of development right there. It's a loss. The kid has made strides in the AHL and was pushing for a NHL job and can pan out. Not like we protected someone we shouldn't have though. So even though the loss is painful, it is what it is.

Cole Lind requires waivers to get sent to the minors.  He’s not going to clear.  Lind isn’t on the Krackheads for very long.

I like the pick and am sad to see him go, but who was he pushing out of the lineup?
