My question: if he retires and is therefore owed no salary, what value would the Leafs have to pay to trade him to a bottom-cap team? It can't very high; maybe a mid- to late-round pick?

Unfortunately a lot higher - for example, the Detroit Red Wings had to give up a 1st round pick (16th overall) to take on a retired Pavel Datsuyk.

edit: my bad - Detroit got a first round pick in return.  Basically moved down 4 spots in the first round in order for Phoenix to take it.

Realistically, his teammate Bouwmeester would be a massive upgrade on Hainsey.

Not so sure that's true actually with the season Bouwmeester is having right now.

Yeah. None of the pending UFAs on the trade market are all that appealing right now.

I had a look at the 2020 UFAs because the 2019 ones were so unappealing, and the one that stuck out to me was Pietrangelo.  It depends on a lot of factors - does St.Louis decide to blow it up and rebuild?  Are they willing to trade him away with another year left on his deal?  Are they willing to eat some of his salary and/or take salary back?

If so, if the Leafs are decidedly "going for it" I would probably probably pay a king's ransom for 2 playoffs runs with Pietrangelo.

This is actually a big win for Nylander then.

Oh snap, I thought the full was 6.9.  So Nylander is getting something closer to $7.25?

My guess is 6 years, $7mil per year.  Lower cap hit ($6.629mil) in years 2-6, though, as we've parsed over a few times. :P

The only problem with having Martina Ortiz-Luis as an anthem singer is that she makes all other anthem singers seem inadequate. :P

I'm surprised they went with Hitch over Quenville, but that's just me.

edit: sounds like a shoulder injury and 4 weeks, same as Matthews.  If it was out for several months, considering their D injuries, I'd wonder if the Bruins would make the playoffs.

Echo Andersen, Hyman.  Head rubs to Ennis, Marner, and even Johnsson had a really good game.

I think I'm starting to come around on Ennis.

More change of scenery trades!

I'll go Kappy, HM: Andersen as well.

This game is weird.

Someone responded with Eichel and Dahlin.  That's probably the closest I would need to trade Matthews, and a) I don't think Buffalo would do it and b) I'm still hesitant to say yes.

Is this one officially in the bag?  Can I go to bed? :P
