HKSR Posted July 15, 2022 Share Posted July 15, 2022 The Trade: To ARZ: Nils Hoglander Grigori Denisenko To VAN: Mackenzie Weegar Sam Bennett To FLA: JT Miller Tyler Myers VAN out: Miller, Myers, Hoglander VAN in: Weegar, Bennett FLA out: Weegar, Bennett, Denisenko FLA in: Miller, Myers ARZ out: Cap space ARZ in: Hoglander, Denisenko The Cap Manoeuvring: In the deal, VAN retains 25% on JT Miller ($1,312,500 retained), and ARZ retains 50% of the remainder ($1,968,750) as well as 50% of Tyler Myer's cap hit ($3,000,000). Net cap hit for FLA: -$2,706,250 IN: JT Miller is $1,968,750 and Tyler Myers is $3,000,000 for a total of $4,968,750. OUT: Weegar and Bennett for $7,675,000. Net cap hit for VAN: -$2,262,500 IN: Weegar and Bennett for $7,675,000 OUT: Miller @ 25% retained and Myers for $9,937,500. Net cap hit for ARZ for 2022/23: $4,968,750 (Miller and Myers) The Reasoning: Both FLA and VAN are cap crunched. FLA doesn't want to take a major step back, so adding Miller and Myers both at incredible bargain cap hits gives them the guys they need to push for a big run this year, and they also save nearly $3M in the process. VAN acquires that coveted RHD to play with Hughes, and an 18yo C that can put up good numbers that maintains the depth lost with Miller moving on. ARZ acquires 2 good prospects and only needs to absorb the cap hits for 1 year on Miller and 2 years on Myers.
