Lol go figure, the Laffs are in salary cap hell and the NHL changes the rules to allow the cap-circumvention.

You're paying money to read Mirtle?!! :lol:

OMG wot a SCHMUCK!

Ummm... try this article:

My favourite part when I clicked on your link:

Updated: The section "What about LTIR?" Has been updated on July 11, 2017

Mirtle made everyone his bitch. No one even bothered to ask except him.

The rule has been in place for years. Nothing has changed. Leafs have over 5 million in cap space.

Everyone in the media (including Mirtle) has always said LTIR can't be used in the off-season.

The other day he wrote an article stating otherwise and Louie the Lam backed him up.

This all inspired Capfriendly to post that update... just after I provided the link. :hmmm:

I guess it's likely that Mirtle/Lou are correct, but there are still reasons why it is almost never done.

I guess the Leaves can put Horton/Lupul on LTIR and sign Brown right away

... but that doesn't mean it would be the prudent thing to do.

It's complicated, but to be able to use ALL the capspace LTIRing Horton/Lupul could provide

... Leaves, at the very least, need to trade away a lot of salary before opening day.

In fact it would be idiotic not to trade away a lot of salary.

Which brings us back to our little debate at hand.

You were saying we should expect the Leaves to keep all their players going into next season.

But even the Leaves aren't stupid enough to do such a thing.

So a miracle happened - understanding of LTIR was turned upside down - but you still lost the debate. :mrgreen:

It's interesting that the Leaves are going all in for the next two seasons.

The "Shanaplan" you swore allegiance to is clearly out the window.

Leaves will have overage-bonuses for 2018-19 for sure now, as well as relying on old men to make a difference.

And yes Virginia you're still a schmuck for paying to read Mirtle.

Harsh treatment?

Perhaps, but hey at least I didn't mentioned his Art Vandelay handle amirite? :mrgreen:

Mirtle confirmed with Daly prior to writing the article. It is true. And it's hilarious that all these "NHL Execs" did not even know the rules (There's been unnamed Execs bashing the Leafs in other articles-glad they don't work for the Leafs, because clearly they did not know LTIR is used in the summer).

They do not have to trade anyone. They have enough for Brown. That is all they need.

And yes, the article was updated after Mirtle's article. I just find it funny even that site had it wrong.

I love how the Leafs ARE the smartest guys in the room. They knew this when virtually no one else did. Is Benning and Linden like that?

Well I can assure you that every single NHL GM and his capologist knew.

BigTuna wrote:They do not have to trade anyone. They have enough for Brown. That is all they need.


Again, it would not be prudent to do so.

For eg. if the only other off-season moves they make is to put Horton on LTIR and sign Brown for $3M

... they would only be able to use $2M of the extra $5.3M Horton's LTIRing provides.

And that would apply for the entire season no matter what.

(I told you there are reasons why off-season LTIR has only been used twice ever)

Also, they would be going into Day One at $7M over the reg season cap

... which would force them to LTIR Lupul as well, which would limit Lupul's $5.25M LTIR space as well.

Lou would be a complete idiot to do this and frankly it is just Not. Gunna. Happen.

(Leaves will strive to be as close to $5.25M-over-cap without going over as possible)

Again, put down the koolaid and wake the fuck up, every GM in the league was well aware. :scowl:

Perhaps not "NHL Execs" as in PR guys like Shanahan and Linden.

But you can bet your sweet bippy that every single GM and his capologist were aware...

How do you know this? "Execs" were quoted as saying LITR cannot be used in the summer.

The onus is on you to prove GMs were unaware (you said so, I merely contradicted).

As I said, perhaps "NHL Execs" such as Shanahan and Linden were unaware (not part of their job?).

As I also said, 2 other GMs have used off-season LTIR in the past (Daly referred to this).

So yeah, what links do you have to offer? :mex:
