I don't think it's too much of a stretch. We have a vastly improved lineup, and it's not like OEL needs to be carrying this team, only that he can carry his load. He should be fine.

Yeah: on paper the team is better; hopefully Green can put it all together and have these guys playing & winning together on the ice (?).

Utilizing that cap for a top pair D and top 6 forward instead of bottom 6 or pressbox = priceless

I agree but can garland become an empty net specialist like little thing Louie

People thinking that we were going to sign a young, two-way power forward just entering his prime to a deal under 4 million. LOL, I was expecting 4.5, but the fact that this contract takes him till he's 30 is really good. 

Garland is a power forward?

Yes he's going to play pee-wee for us.   Except there is always some kid with a mustache so he might be in trouble

I think so.   But this year zero excuses.  A proper training camp etc.  No covid no schedule.    Better lineup.   If we don't make the playoffs TG will probably get the boot unless it's injuries and a ton of them.

This guy eats chocolate icecream with gummies bears. We have made a terrible mistake signing him long term...

Well that's nothing. Alf eats cats! Haha!

Good term.  1 million over value imo.

 

But what do I know

Not gonna get him at 3.95 considering the production the past 2 years, doubt there are any comparable players that signed for that

If the playoffs are missed, which I'd be legitimately shocked by, Benning will get the boot before Green does.

Great to have this kid added to our core and he sounds very much like a Burrows/HoneyBadger type which this team needs more of. Just curious about one thing about the AVV. It’s a good deal for 5 years no question but how much wiggle room do we have in cap space?
 

 

I might not be a mathematician but we traded 12 million of dead weight contracts and took on OEL’s 7.2 and Garlands 4.9. How much room do we have to resign Dickinson, Petey Hughes and improving our right side D? I’m guessing the 5.95 from Schmidt is coming off but unsure what would be coming back. Are we in good shape cap wise?

Not a math guy either, but according to Capfriendly:

Nope. We are in essentially the same cap situation we were before the trade. We are better on the ice though.

 

But gettibg rid of Eriksson, Roussel, Beagle, Virtanen, and Holtby and bringing in OEL, Garland, Dickenson, and a Holtby replacement is essentially a wash cap wise. Maybe a mil or two added to whats available for Petey and Hughes. But still need to round out the depth too so ultimately nothing significant was gained cap wise.

 

It is still very much a dollar out for dollar in scenario.
