Arthur Staple confirms that there's no salary retention.

Perfect.  Based on the return, we kinda figured that would be the case but still- glad its confirmed.

This may have actually been Lou's best transaction as GM of the Islanders.

Well... if I'm the GM on the Island, after losing Tavares, I'm looking at tanking for a season or two anyways.  Martin's contract will help keep them above the floor if they trade guys like Eberle or Lee for future assets.  Really, short contracts to Val and Kunhackel are acceptable.  Don't want really young guys in the lineup when they aren't ready.  Komarov's deal is just dumb, no matter how you slice it.

Carrick, probably.

This is fantastic. Nothing against Martin, but it's so encouraging to see the Leafs get rid of these superfluous types that don't drive offense.

This is going to be a fun team to watch.

You know, it's funny, but now that they have Tavares and Matthews, "these superfluous types that don't drive offense" are Hyman and Brown.

I actually meant to say "that don't contribute to offense." But you're right, and that's a significant upgrade.

Martin is actually a decent player for a less high-powered team, but not at Lou's contracted salary.  As mentioned, if it helps them tank it actually is a decent move by Lou.  Brings back a popular player ... who can try to drive JT's head through the sideboards on Feb 28.

What I love is, Dubas systematically dismantling and taking away all of Babcock's favourite toys.

I think Jedi mind master Dubas, has taken over Lou's ageing brain and programmed him to take the Islanders job and then self destruct. Sort of like the tape in the old Mission Impossible.
