How does it impact the cap with his buyout?
A shade over a million on the books for the next 2 seasons.

Good riddance

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Luongo Retires.... https://www.nhl.com/panthers/news/luongos-open-letter-to-the-fans/c-308071408?fbclid=IwAR3fL35XY6wAtYXLg-5QX9t4QmRV4ap9weBrfrjCiQmDNsD_BZxtsaa_7ac So $2.8M cap hit? I assume this means his $800K retention comes off the books? So it only adds $2.2M-ish of new dead money to the cap.

We needed something, and paid full price for it. Discounts are nice, but don't always happen with this GM.
Fixed.

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

I don't judge transactions against perfection.....sure I'd like to see the team win every deal but that isn't based on reality... I base the job Bennings done against the other GM's in the leagues track records... If we are throwing around assumptions to make our arguments, I'm assuming that there ...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

TRADE: The Lightning have traded forward J.T. Miller to Vancouver for a conditional first-round pick in 2020, a third-round selection in 2019 and goaltender Marek Mazanec. Should the Canucks not make the playoffs in 2019-20, the first-round selection will move to the 2021 draft. Not a fan of the pr...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

There are some exceptional Russian players in the league right now. And note that the best ones don’t seem to be ‘problems’. Here’s hoping he makes it to the team sooner than 2 years. I don't think it's a matter of talent, Puck. Pretty sure the NHL/KHL agreement forbids inter-league transfers, and ...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Don't mind taking the risk. He likely woudln't crack the team next year, so it's essentially an extra year wait.

And with the way ELC's are going these days, might be wise to let this one slide a year or two. Could be a fantastic (cheap) addition in 2021-22.

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Don’t think we need a Barrie, isn’t that kind of why we have Hughes? Certainly not at the expense of Horvat. If we’re dead set on bringing in an offensively-minded/defensively-questionable D-Man, Jake Gardiner can be bad for nothing but money in just over a week. edit: and before anyone starts think...

Yeah, Clarkson would be perfect for that.

But I heard he's only waiving for certain cities.

Speculation is it must be cities with low tax brackets.
As a (permanently, it seems) disabled player, could he not choose to undergo treatment and/or recovery in any city he chooses?

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

There’s lots of other ways for Ottawa to get to the floor. They don’t have to take on three years of the laziest player in the league. I have my doubts whether he’d be a top six forward in Utica. Blob the point of using eriksson to get to the floor is his contract in real dollars lowers the salary ...

Re: Canucks Contracts

Much can happen between now and July 1st. The objective here is to improve the defence for next year and beyond. If this means moving on from Edler, so be it, but I don’t believe anything until it’s official. Yep. I imagine both sides are comfortable with allowing Edler to interview with other team...
