The 'Chain of Command' is the chain I am going to beat you with until you understand I am in charge.
Well done. The challenge will be 3rd line center and filling that spot with a solid two way guy who can play the pk as Gaudette doesn't appear to be the right fit there. That's the biggest hole on the team. Move on from Virtanen, allocate those dollars and more if they can to the center, then slide Gaudette to the right side. Hopefully they find more toughness along the way too.Cherry Picker wrote: ↑Tue Mar 16, 2021 8:22 pm Here’s a possible roster for next year using the numbers discussed above, but without factoring in the player lost in the expansion draft. It’s pretty tight and my numbers may be off, but if not, they could still fit Edler at 3.5, but they wouldn’t have a replacement for Pearson beyond Podkolzin unless Lind or Gadjovich can do the job. A Virtanen buy out would give other possibilities.
Right wing: Brock Boeser ($5,875,000) - Vasily Podkolzin ($925,000) - Jake Virtanen ($2,550,000) - Zack MacEwen ($825,000)
Centre: Elias Pettersson ($6,000,000) - Bo Horvat ($5,500,000) - Adam Gaudette ($1,000,000) - Jay Beagle ($3,000,000)
Left wing: J.T. Miller ($5,250,000) - Nils Höglander ($891,667) - Jayce Hawryluk ($1,000,000) - Tyler Motte ($1,225,000) - Antoine Roussel ($3,000,000)
Right: Travis Hamonic ($1,500,000) - Nate Schmidt ($5,950,000) - Tyler Myers ($6,000,000) - Nikita Tryamkin ($2,000,000)
Left: Quinn Hughes ($6,000,000) - Alexander Edler ($3,500,000) - Olli Juolevi ($1,000,000) - Jack Rathbone ($925,000)
Thatcher Demko ($6,200,000) - Braden Holtby ($4,300,000)
Loui Eriksson ($4,000,000)
Roster Size: 23
Salary Cap: $81,500,000
Cap Hit: $81,451,879
Cap Space: $48,121
On defense, I think someone's going to offer Edler more and maybe he takes it if it's Seattle or even Calgary. Do you think Tryamkin signs without some type of assurance around being in the lineup at least to start for a good look?
Myers and Schmidt have virtually the same cap hit, I see better value from Myers than from Schmidt. A solid, not-spectacular, 22-minute defenceman who plays gnasty in the playoffs and scores ~30 points is worth $6 mil. A solid, not-spectacular, 19-20 minute defenceman who skates like the wind and scores ~20 points is not worth $5.95 mil, imo.The Brown Wizard wrote: ↑Tue Mar 16, 2021 9:11 pm I can see Van trading Myers and for sure there would be a market for him even at 6. He makes too much for what he brings to van and Jimmy needs that space.
Its too bad as hes valuable in the lineup but having 3 big tickets coming due at the same time will necessitate some more dramatic changes.
There is no question they are lacking in this area. Have for a very long time. They could do with a couple of guys that can administer a retaliatory
answer when needed and the team in general needs a bit of an attitude adjustment in how to handle opposition players targeting our best players.
There's a token response usually but sometimes it takes more. We are fortunate the officials being used in the North division seem to be whistle happy.
Note; I aint talkin hired goons here. Just that it's noticeable we could do with some sand paper even if that is "party" saying attitude adjustment.
