MTL trades Hoffman & Kulak (50% ret)

PIT trades Kapanen, Simon, 2022 1st & 5th + 2023 2nd

- Kap helps the salary fit
- Simon is included to fit the 23-man roster (PIT may be able to find the spot internally as well)

Pretty big overpay by the Pens. Habs will be lucky to get a 3rd for Hoffman and maybe a 2nd for Kulak.

17 Mar 2022 14:12:42
MTL trades Allen (retain 50% this year)

TOR trades 2nd & 4th ('22) + Mikheyev's expiring contract (unless they can free up a roster spot some other way)

I wanted to broaden the trade to include Kulak too but leafs have to create roster space somehow.

Jeff petry to phi for Claude giroux. Only if he signs 2 to 3 year contract with Montreal.

Agree0 Disagree4

Absolutely not.

18 Mar 2022 01:33:11
Only reason why I say that is Montreal would be looking after Petrys wishes to be traded to the United States, and giroux is from Ottawa and rumour is he want to move closer to home. There’s a lot of rumours in the off season Montreal if they get rid of enough contracts. They are interested in signing Patrice bergeon and kris letang, or giroux and letang. And they want one of the two centres to help Suzukis game. And remember Hughes was bergeon ands letangs agent so letang would fill in for petry.

MTL: Weber

MIN: 2nd

Usually you'd expect something in the range of a 3rd or lower, but Minnesota will have debilitating cap issues the next 3 years with the buyouts of Parise and Suter:

- 12.7M
- 14.7M
- 14.7M
- 1.6M
- 1.6M

I believe Weber's contract (4 x 7.87M) is therefore worth more to Minny than any other team because their cap crunch is so acute. Thus the 2nd.

If Price is unable to return, his cap hit of 10.5M would be extremely valuable too. (Who would ever have thought that contracts for players who can't play would have some kind of tradeable value??)

How does this help Minnesota? How do they gain cap space doing this and how much. Does Weber' contract not count against the cap? I understand how it helps a team like Arizona but don't understand the voodoo of the cap in regards to going over.

09 Mar 2022 03:30:52
A team essentially frees up cap space by having players on LTIR. That's why a contract for a player who will never play again has value to a team that wants to spend to the cap, as well as a team like Arizona looking for a cheap way to hit the cap floor.

I hope this helps, but Cap Friendly can provide you with all the details and explanations. 👍.

10 Mar 2022 00:03:37
Love Cap friendly but it doesn't explain how you gain cap space. Just read a post from Friedman that it wouldn't work for a few of the reasons I thought anyway. Would of been nice though! Thx always appreciate your insight.

12 Mar 2022 16:31:06
Having a player on LTIR allows you to spend over the cap. Weber's cap hit is around 7.8M for 4 more seasons. This would essentially add 7.8M in cap space to Minnesota, who will have a serious cap crunch with the heavy buyout penalties they will be dealing with.

18 Mar 2022 01:21:45
It’s believable but if I were Montreal I would be asking for jack mcbain along with the second rounder. Cause if Weber decides to retire the contract goes back to Nashville but I don’t think they can retain the ltir they are on the hook for the cap space until his contracts is over. That was the agreement in the subban Weber trade.

Kings get J Struble for Brock Faber to the Habs.

Kings are deep with RHD, Habs deep with LHD. Two teams dealing from an area of strength to an area of weakness.

Montreal Trades

Toronto Trades
6th Round Pick 2023

*Montreal retains 110k of Weber's remaining contract.

This is a Cap Trade to clear out over 7.5m for The Leafs on LTIR loophole, to retain 110k is really nothing for Montreal but huge for Toronto to not be over The Cap.


Agree1 Disagree7

Sounds like you may know how LTIR works. How much money would the Leafs gain against the cap. I thought all the money had to go on LTIR.

18 Mar 2022 01:26:03
Webers contract is literally worth nothing less than a first draft pick.

27 Feb 2022 20:24:31
Hab trades:

to Avs for Baron + Avs 2023 2nd round pick

to Flyers for Flyers 2022 1st round pick + Desnoyers

to Blues for Bolduc + Blues 2022 2nd round pick

So MTL trades Petry, Chiarot and Lehkonen
In return for
Baron, Bolduc, Desnoyers and
Flyers 2022 1st, Blues 2022 2nd and Avs 2023 2nd

Agree2 Disagree3
