Kind of stupid for sure.  I mean I get that they had to get final revenue numbers and all that to set the cap, but they know when the latest date is for the Cup, so why not push back other key dates like the draft and free agency until you can be certain the cap number is known to all.  Either figure the cap number out earlier, or make the draft and free agency push out a week later.

That's what Bob McKenzie has been saying the last day or so.  Said the cap could be 81.5M

As a side note, the league might want to consider allowing that Vegas hockey betting thing to be part of hockey related revenues...just saying.

Kinda random, but John Shannon has had this tweet up for almost a full 24 hours now. He thinks it's the RFA compensation chart, but he took it directly from a PDF of the CBA so it's the 2013 numbers. Dozens of people have told him it's incorrect. It's still up. He's one of Sportsnet's top insiders.

They could make the cap retroactive to the previous years revenue. It would solve issues like this, wholly deal with the escrow issue, and eliminate this "what's the cap gonna be?" just weeks before free agency. It would require a one-year cap freeze to implement at this point.

Boeser is not eligible for an offer sheet from another team under the collective bargaining agreement because he played fewer than 10 games in 2016-17.

A pretty deliberate call up late in the season that preserves team leverage coming out of the ELC.

Thanks for that. It seems strange that a guy who has played two full years in the league has zero options other than to take what the team offers or hold out.

JT Compher is apparently re-signed in Colorado at 4 years/3.5 million AAV which seems now to basically be the standard "He's ok, with some potential and had a decent year" deal for younger guys.

Going into the off-season I thought Colorado might be a team to watch for an offer sheet because of all of their cap space and the fact that they've already got a really good prospect base so they could take the draft pick hit a little better than most. After the Compher signing though and assuming Rantanen gets at least 8 or 9 they're only going to have 6 or 7 million left. Still crazy to think they get four more years of Mackinnon at 6.3

Were we not all thinking MacKinnons deal was a severe underpay? Given that his only issue was shooting percentage?

At the time? I think a lot of people just looked at his production and worried if he'd ever fulfill his potential.

That said, people can say what they want about Ferris but it's Nathan Mackinnon's agent who is probably keeping big time RFA's from signing 7 and 8 year deals.

Title: Re: 2019-2020 NHL Thread
Post by: CarltonTheBear on July 17, 2019, 03:09:58 PM
I think that we all knew MacKinnon was capable of more but his first 3 seasons he scored at an 82-game pace of 63 points, 48 points, and then 59 points. Regardless of his shooting percentage, those were underwhelming numbers. It's MacKinnon's/his agents fault for not opting for a shorter term deal but on a long-term contract his AAV was probably right where it should have been based off his first 3 years in the NHL.

I mean Nylander had back to back 60 point seasons and signed for virtually the exact same cap hit percentage and we all know what the reaction to that was.
Title: Re: 2019-2020 NHL Thread
Post by: CarltonTheBear on July 17, 2019, 03:13:06 PM
MacKinnon also followed up that contract extension with just a 53-point season. I bet Avs management was getting pretty worried about him meeting his draft hype after that one (and then he of course did).
Title: Re: 2019-2020 NHL Thread
Post by: CarltonTheBear on July 17, 2019, 03:15:48 PM
Random factoid while I was looking into that: It took MacKinnon 5 seasons and 374 games to score 114 goals. Matthews has 111 in 3 seasons and 212 games.

I'm really hoping we look back at the Nylander deal in 2 years and comment on it being an absolute steal of deal.  He has the talent to far outperform that number, I hope he does it.

So this is just sort of idle nonsense slow news day thinking but it's been such a long time since we've had a real best-on-best tournament I couldn't help but think about what a current Team Canada roster would look like. Here's my best guess:

Marchand-McDavid-Mackinnon
Bergeron-Crosby-Point
Scheifele-Tavares-Marner
Benn-Toews-Seguin
Couturier
Monahan

Burns-Giordano
Parayko-Pietrangelo
Doughty-Keith
Rielly

Price
Holtby
Fleury/Murray

Man, we really need a good international tournament again. That team would be bananas fun to watch.

Pretty ridiculous depth when a player like Taylor Hall, one year removed from a Hart and still in his prime, doesn't make the cut and I'm struggling to pick a player to take of your team to include him.

To top that off, I forgot Stamkos. So he probably takes Monahan's spot there and bumps Marner or Point or someone.

Here's my team, while trying to keep a L-R split on the wings and defence since it's something the coaching staff has found important in the past:

Point-McDavid-MacKinnon
Marchand-Crosby-Bergeron
Benn-Tavares-Marner
Toews-Scheifele-Stone
Stamkos-Giroux

Giordano-Doughty
Keith-Pietrangelo
Vlasic-Burns
Rielly-Parakyo

Price
Holtby
Fleury

Pretty similar for the most part, mostly line shuffling changes. I doubt the Crosby line gets broken up, although it's crazy to think that they might/wouldn't be the top line this time around.

Title: Re: 2019-2020 NHL Thread
Post by: CarltonTheBear on July 17, 2019, 04:28:20 PM
The Sochi team was arguably the most dominant hockey team ever and it still had some questionable players on the roster like Marleau, Kunitz, Sharp, Hamhuis, and Bouwmeester. Plus some good but slower/older players like Carter, Perry, Getzlaf, and Nash. The rosters here don't have/need any of those players, but there's still a good amount of veteran and defensive presence. It'd be a slaughter.

For some reason I had thought that Stamkos had dropped off a bit in recent years, but 98 points last year and 86 the year before.

I did like Team North America, it was a fun thing in the tournament but on reflection it was sort of one of the things that kind of held it back from being a tournament that I took seriously. So long as Canada and the US are forced to play at 85-90% strength it makes any other winner but those two teams illegitimate.

Here's my crack at the US, who also might have the best roster they could ever put together:

Tkachuk-Matthews-Kane      
Gaudreau-Eichel-Wheeler      
Atkinson-Larkin-Pavelski      
Guentzel-Trocheck-Oshie      
Kessel-Lee         
         
Werenski-Jones         
Suter-Carlson         
Slavin-Byfuglien         
McDonagh-Trouba         
         
Bishop
Gibson
Hellebuyck         

I mostly just did this by looking at Americans based off points. Still a pretty good roster. Their bottom 6 forwards don't have as many elite players as Canada but they aren't taking actual bottom-6 players anymore either. Also have a hell of a defence while their goaltending is pretty much even with ours. And I ended up leaving off a number of pretty good players that could fit (Kreider, Boeser, DeBrincat, McAvoy, Pesce, Yandle, Krug).

Yeah. It's not great, but all three guys on it have at least one 20+ goal season . . .  :-X

In all seriousness, I think the combination of RNH and Neal could make for a perfectly reasonable 2nd line, assuming Neal bounces back some. It's not a good 2nd line, but it's not a terrible one, either. Probably in the lower third of the league, but not at the bottom of the barrel.

Nope, and that's probably the only reason Edmonton will finish ahead of them. That being said, if Ottawa gets reasonable goaltending this season, they're not going to get embarrassed nearly as frequently as I imagine the Oilers will. They're going to make teams work a lot harder to beat them than people expect for what will likely be a last place team.

Puljujarvi is still an RFA. He just now has a place to make money and get into game shape until the decision deadline of Dec. 1st. If Edmonton trades his rights, or can otherwise convince him that they're not a trash fire vortex, he has an NHL out clause up until the deadline day. Otherwise he gets to play out the Liiga season and rebuild some confidence.

All the unsigned RFAs should just form a European super team.

Tkachuk-Point-Rantanen
Boeser-Kempe-Marner
Connor-Zacha-Laine
Fiala-Barbashev-Konecny

Werenski-McAvoy
Provorov-DeAngelo
Pettersson-Carlo

Honka

I mean Honka might get lit up in net but nobody wants him playing defence so attempting a position change might be in his best interests.

Now if Matthews and Aho drew out their negotiations, this team would be going (even more) places, lack of goalie notwithstanding.

I guess under those rules (all the RFA drag it out), they'd also have Binnington, Trouba, Meier, Ho-Sang, etc.

Where do you thing Gards ends up? Sounds like he really likes Toronto and I'd assume would want to reap the rewards/win here but he'd have to take a massive discount to fit. Friedge mentions several teams with interest. It's an interesting case of the NHL's middle/upper-middle class. If you want to cash in it's going to be somewhere who has the space.

You'd have to figure that Gardiner has to get off the pot soon if he wants to get paid in the vicinity he feels he deserves. Eventually any team still kicking his tires will tire and move on to a slightly less attractive option. It's just about last call.

I mean you gotta think that duo's pretty much locked in. If it wasn't there's no way they'd sign him to a deal like this when 1) he still has a year left on his ELC and 2) he's coming off a sophomore season where he scored 18 less points than his rookie year. They're trying to get ahead of a massive year 3 and that's probably only happening with Phil riding shotgun.

Hard to say how the league would officially recognize that if it happens. Does a game missed when he doesn't have a SPC break the streak? It's not like there's anywhere to list him as a scratch.

Maybe, but Trouba obviously seemed like he wanted out regardless. At best they might have been able to get him on another 1-year deal or whatever brought him to UFA status but he was going to be gone eventually. Maybe they make a bigger effort to keep Myers though. Not that he's amazing or anything but still better than what they're left with.

Check the training camp thread and you'll see the discussion on this.

Boils down to the fact that he makes it almost impossible to have 21 guys on the roster once Hyman and Dermott returns (barring a trade).  He's gotta be significantly better than the other options with a 700k cap hit to make Dubas want to trade anyone with over 1M salary.

He really needs to learn to shut the Frig up. Sometimes it pays to be diplomatic, but honestly his whole outlook on his career and how hockey actually works needs to be re-evaluated.

A bottom feeder team with no cap implications should probably take a chance on him.  I guess he has to stay on your NHL roster if you claim him, if he works out great, free player, if not you waive him as  well.  I can't see a contending team taking a shot at him given his apparent attitude issues.

Daniel Sprong finds himself on waivers, which seems surprising to me. After Anaheim acquired him last season he scored at a 24 goal, 33 point pace for them while playing just 13 minutes a game. He's only 22 years old and it's not like the Ducks are swimming in offensive talent right now.

I don't know about that. The defense is a mess, sure, but the Red Wings are returning a couple of 30 goal scorers and a couple more guys at 20+. The only returning Sen with 20 goals was Tkachuk. Beyond that it's Bobby Ryan at #2 with 15.

Hard to say how the league would officially recognize that if it happens. Does a game missed when he doesn't have a SPC break the streak? It's not like there's anywhere to list him as a scratch.
Of course it ends. Otherwise there are hundreds of players presently extending their streak by not playing

I mean if Doug Jarvis wanted to lace up his skates for another game to get his streak to 965 I'd give it to him.

Nope, but I did almost use a keeper spot on him because I picked him up late last season when someone got frustrated and dropped him. Goalies on "top" level teams are hard to come by. But after reviewing Winnipeg's offseason I decided not to, which is certainly looking like a good move.

Given that this Neal/Lucic trade was between Calgary and Edmonton, it's bound to be a storyline for the rest of the year, at least.

So Neal gets 4 goals last night, and Lucic ends up going after a guy named Kurtis MacDermid after Kurtis lined him up on a questionable hit. 

Kurtis is an undrafted call-up, 6'5" 230lbs defenseman that played 7 minutes last night, and makes $675K/yr with 46 NHL games under his belt at 25 years old.

Lucic has 0 points in 3 games, and I think the only real reason for the fight was that Calgary was asleep for the first, and down 3-0 at that point.  They ended up losing in overtime, but some may suggest that this woke up the Calgary bench a little....but even if that's the argument, at $5m+ on the cap, I'm pretty sure there are cheaper options than Lucic to fight a MacDermid.

My point is that it seems that Edmonton may have finally won a trade here, at least on the early returns.

Oh they've won this trade for sure.  Neal has slowed down from his heyday, but playing with McDavid on the PP he can probably still get mid 20s in goals, Lucic is just a cement head.

That's not what this guy, who gets paid thousands and thousands of dollars to analyze hockey, thinks!

I don't know if scoring a bunch of goals on McDavid's wing early in the season proves anything definitively but it is a little weird how quickly Calgary gave up on Neal.
