Both guys would be interesting if they were interested in Thornton-type deals.

So they are going to have $12.8M in dead cap next year and $14.6M for the 2 years after that??

Crazy.

Cleared two slots this year for the expansion draft, but yeah a lot of cap crud until after 2024

You are potentially aging out your roster but it would be especially interesting if they protected Kerfoot and exposed Holl/Dermott only to add Suter in place of the guy they lost.

Yeah that's a lot worse than I would have expected. Surprised they couldn't have just gotten them to waive their NMC for the draft to keep Dumba. It's not like Seattle was touching those contracts.

Yeah, I'd be pretty interested in both. Curious to see what they sign for, and if they try to stay together. Guessing Lou will be all over both of them.

I hate for this to be another "I told you so" but the panic over these kinds of deals and how "unfair" they were was like people on existing phone contracts losing their minds over the low teaser rates for new customers. The pain was always going to be in the back end of these deals and they were fundamentally risky.

Not to worry though, we only lost a whole half season because of the whining.

So confusing. Why go for Eichel if you have that much dead cap space?

Minnesota's owner signing those two contracts and then immediately leading the lockdown efforts will always be funny/sad/infuriating.

You have that much dead cap next year so that's future Guerin's problem. But this year, you can buy low on an Eichel swap (which opens a bit of space too), and then ride the ELC train to fill the gaps. UFAs will want to play with the Wild kids and Eichel.

The Wild buying out the cap twins so they can protect Dumba so he can be part of the trade for Eichel is funny to me.

Ridiculous. Just ridiculous.

That being said, Suter would be a great add to the blueline. Parise could be an interesting depth piece/value play.

The buyouts block about 18 league minimum deals from being signed in the NHL next three seasons.
