for Garret Sparks and a 4th Round pick in 2020.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

I guess they can go over the cap with both of Horton and Clarkson? More space for Mitch?

Yeah. So basically a 4th rounder for Sparks

This is... odd. I get the theory I guess, the Leafs know they'll be in LTIR territory so a bit more doesn't hurt. But only getting a 4th rounder in return seems low.

Because of LTIR and the small amount of actual money left on Clarkson's deal, it's more or less meaningless for the Leafs to take it on. So a 4th for Sparks and saving Vegas about a million bucks in real money.

Mainstream media is hilarious. McGran seems to think this gives the Leafs more cap space.

Reading some of the replies to Friedman and cap literacy seems dangerously low among the gen pop.

I'm literally screaming. He's acting like Horton and Clarkson aren't on the cap and then saying they can go over the limit by their caps...

(this is wrong)

How does it work ? Horton is 5.3M and Clarkson 5.25M aren't the Leafs able to exceed the cap by 10.6M once they're at the 81.5?

Maybe they should trade for an elephant and get his weight in cap space. That's how the cap works right?
