Quote from: CarltonTheBear on May 21, 2024, 01:46:05 PMTampa trades away McDonagh when they shouldn't have (betting he would fall off in his 33 and 34-year old seasons, he didn't) and then reacquire him when they shouldn't (more likely to fall off in his 35 and 36-year old seasons, and they're in more of a cap bind with Stamkos). Alrighty.

Pretty tidy bit of business from Nashville though, but it also leaves a big hole in their defence.

They have a pretty significant buyout penalty about to hit their books, so, they needed to do something to have any real flexibility this summer and next summer. Almost $12M in dead cap next season.

Marner played defense.

Chicago must REALLY like the guy they think is going to be available at 18 but not at 20.

They can always trade it away at the draft for maybe more? I don't know, this seems either dumb or some sort of favour for Lou.

Really feels like there's more to this trade. Otherwise, weird timing, for sure.

Yep, was going to say I don't get the timing either. Could totally understand it on draft day as a response to what was actually happening.

It's a shame Chicago doesn't really have any pieces worth trying to fleece Davidson for.

They probably accidentally calculated it from NYI's side.
