John_Guest Posted February 1, 2022 Share Posted February 1, 2022 I don't post a lot of threads. The reason being, I don't know as much about hockey as the rest of you wizards. I don't want to embarrass myself. So think of this as more of a bunch of questions and hopefully you can help me out. As I understand it we have cap problems and that leads us to want to look at guys like Miller, Boeser, or even Motte for a trade. But I look at Cap Friendly and I don't see the cap problem. There's nothing for cap there now but isn't this the year we lose the Luongo recapture penalty? CF says that's 3million. I don't understand why LTIR doesn't factor into this. Sutter's out with a contract coming next year, so he's gone at the end of this season, right? That's a mill. It's pretty had to imagine Ferland coming back, so how does that work? Where does that 3.5 in cap go? Has it already been discounted? I don't know what the situation is with Hamonic but even it he does come back, at this point why not just give him away to lose another 3 mill. How much of that 10.5 million in cap space could we actually lose if that's what it really is? Speaking of giving away players, I like OEL but if we're talking crappier contracts than we'd be giving Boeser, Miller or Motte, there's one. At this time he seems more like an aging competent defensive, defense man. That nice but couldn't we find one of those a lot cheaper. If we can't trade OEL could we give him away and keep his 7.2 in cap space, maybe replace him for 3 or 4? Then there's Myers. I'm starting to like Myers but he's 6 mill in cap space. Would I trade Myers for Miller? I would. Especially if something cheaper could be found to replace him and factor in what we could get for him. So why not use what we could make from a Myers trade to give Miller a raise? And if I'm reading Cap Friendly correctly don't we get another 2.4 million in dead cap for Virtanen and Holtby at the end of next year? I must be missing something. They tell me Rutherford is a pretty knowledgeable hockey man and he says there's a cap problem, so what am I missing? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
