Taylor Hall signing in Buffalo for one year for eight million and still;
PROJECTED CAP HIT : $67,854,167
PROJECTED LTIR USED : $0
PROJECTED CAP SPACE : $13,645,833

They need the dynamic Louis / Sven combo. It will only cost them picks and prospects. :P

Just find Twitter a cesspool of the worst kind of humans. Guess I'll wait for 5 minutes of Squire Barnes to get my news ;)
Didn't he retire yet?

CapFriendly does a great job of keeping things current on signings and with UFA/RFA lists.

Well, every player that goes #1 overall is going to a losing team absent a trade or very unlikely lottery results.

New Jersey traded for Hall when they thought they had an elite goaltender and were among the best at suppressing goals. Not unreasonable to think that they thought of themselves as a soon-to-be-winning team.

Arizona was on the upswing based on the prior year's performance compared to what they had been doing. They had some young talent and they were in first place in the division when they acquired Hall.

And Buffalo? Well, I am not sure any "winning" teams are really in the market for top forwards. Cap is tight and 3 of the top 4 forward UFA's (in my view) remain unsigned -- Hoffman, Toffoli, and Dadanov. It might have nothing to do with Hall. Hall wanted to maximize the paycheck, likely. He might have had his tires kicked by winning teams, but once it was clear that he wasn't going to get a big paycheck with a long term deal in this environment, he chose what was likely the highest offer. $ 8 million is a lot of money for a player with Hall's track record.

Of course, Hall doesn't have a track record of bringing those teams to the next level for any sustained period. And a lot of that is that Hall has had trouble staying healthy and the other part is that Hall's not gifted at using his teammates. Players with his skill set and history can absolutely make a team better, but not a LOT better and it isn't $8 million better.

Hearing that the Islanders are finalizing a deal with UFA netminder Cory Schneider. There's the obvious connection there between Schneider and Isles GM Lou Lamoriello. Happy to see Schneider, 34, get a chance to continue his career. One of the good guys in the game.

Ryan S. Clark@ryan_s_clark
Joe Sakic says the club agreed to a three-year deal with Ryan Graves last night.
AAV is $3.16 million,
He's 25, took him a while to get going but what a breakout year. Finishes a shortened season a PLUS 40!

Toffoli to Montreal at 4.25 x4.

You can wake up from your booze haze at any time now Jim. :lol:

We probably don’t even have the money to bring back Fantenberg :lol:

Clearly the Aquilinis have taken the cheque book away. Where was this restraint in previous years when all the damage was done. I like Elmer’s savvy drafting the kids but we need someone running the purse strings here and have for a while.

Holy shit! Madden and a 2nd round pick turns out to be a steep price to pay for just 17 games and a peeky-boo in the POs. Might have been different without the Covid mess.

I would never have given him Boeser money but 4 years at four and a quarter would have been fine. Pearson / Horvat / Toffoli.
This also kind of signals Virtanen's spot is safe.
