This is a good deal; I wonder how quickly Yzerman can turn this around as he's likely looking at another tank year to wait out a few more Holland days deals. Still a lot of holes to fill without very many gamebreaking options. Dylan Larkin, currently their best player, is 82 GP up on William Nylander and only 45 pts ahead. The 2021 draft is going to feature some real talent at the top up front (Owen Geunther, Aatu Raty, Mason McTavish).

Core:
Dylan Larkin
Anthony Mantha
Filip Zadina
Troy Stetcher

In the pipeline that looks promising:
Lucas Raymond
Mo Seider
Joe Veleno
Jonatan Berggren
William Wallinder

I really can't wait for this election to be over so I can start thinking about hockey again and how terrible the Islanders' cap situation looks right now.

I'm figuring Andrew Ladd ends up on Robidas island to give them the space to sign Barzal.

They're def not buying him out because they literally save nothing for the next 3 years. Def Robidas Island candidate and they'll still have Boychuck's 6 mill hit. Of course they could send both to the minors to save 2.15 mill to give them 6 mill in space but that won't be enough. They could buyout Leo to save another mill. What's really fun is that they haven't yet signed Martin, or Greene either. I wonder what Barzal is going to ask for. Got to be in the 8's if Lee is getting 7?

So with the ~2.8M actual space, and 10% offseason space, Tampa has about 10M left to work around for Cernak and Cirelli, but have until the start of the season to clear out 8.1M.

That's a nice deal for TBay in the short-term. His next contract is going to be a big one, though. With the way the contract his structure, his qualifying offer will be $7.2M. Big changes are coming to TBay in the next few seasons. Going to be hard for them to keep the band together.

Basically the same deal as Werenski and McAvoy. I feel like I've always been slightly cooler on Sergachev than most hockey fans. Seeing people call this a steal and maybe it technically is but I think if those other two defencemen set the market at this rate then it's just a fair deal. I'd take them both over him, which isn't exactly a knock of him. I just think getting to play behind Hedman and in the Tampa organization in general probably props him up slightly.

Any predictions on how this turns out?  Is the ?easy? fix trading stamkos?  And if they don?t do that, what are the other options? (Pointers to articles welcome.)
