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

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.

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.
