If he keeps the NMC that screws them come expansion time. Fillpula has a NMC with some form of trade protection as well. Kind of grey as they look like combination deals, ie they can't be waived but they can be asked to submit trade lists.

Could get interesting for Tampa. Johnson, Palat, Kucherov, Kilorn, Hedman and Bishop will all be up for contracts between now and 2017. Hedman and Bishop, if they stay, will be eligible UFA's and I would imagine demand some form of NTC/NMC (not that they would leave them exposed). Drouin (if he stays) will be off is ELC by then and need to be protected.
Callahan, Flip and Bishop have a NMC, but Bish is limited nmc, he probably will be moved, but if they don't get anything worth value they'll keep him till UFA.

Killorn, Hedman re-signed.

Leaves Johnson and Palat whom imo will get $6M - $5M respectively.

If some team wants to throw a wrench in Yzerman's perfect team and perfect world, where everyone is happy and jolly with low taxes, and life is grande with no cons, only pros.

A team could offersheet Kucherov the sniper of snipers.

$7.5M per just to be a dick.

or be real ruthless and offer $8.5M per (he's worth that imo), mortgaging your future for a young 23 year old uberstar winger, as he's a game breaker in the playoffs avg. a point per game, a goal every other game.

Tampa takes your four draft picks and runs. Especially with where the Canucks are likely to be picking over the next 2 drafts.

You think Kucherov is on the same level as a Jamie Benn?

Not comparing 23 yr old Kucherov to 27 yr old $9.5M Benn, but the better comparison is $10.5M per P. Kane.

Kucherov playoff performances the past two seasons for a young guy is Patrick Kane like.

Patrick Kane:
2015 23gp - 11g - 12a - 23pts
2014 19gp - 8g - 12a - 20pts
2013 23gp - 9g - 10a - 19pts

Nikita Kucherov:
2016: 17gp - 11g - 8a - 19pts
2015: 26gp - 10g - 12a - 22pts

His playoff performances along with steady regular season, should put Kuch inline with $8M per pretty easily, if not more.

Sample sizes are fun. How does an $8.5M Kucherov showcase his playoff talent playing for a (generous over the next couple years) 7-14 game Canucks team?

Why say sample sizes.

Kucherov over his last two playoff stretches is hardly a sample size, more of a demonstration of his consistent ability.

Any team adding a Kucherov to their arsenal would obviously be a huge boost from regular season to the playoffs.

If he came as a UFA, sure, it's just money. Giving up two 1sts, a 2nd and a third for him on top of $8.5M per would be insane. Doubly so for a team like Vancouver who are likely looking at top-10 picks for the next couple seasons.

Yes the Canucks are in no position to give up multiple 1st's.

The team I can see do this though is the Rangers, classic NYR style.

Leaves sign Matthews to his ELC. Guess what? He got the max.

Leaf executives indeed had to step in to get this done. Once the leaves capitulated the deal was done, no fuss, no mess. Once again Lou looks real dumb in all of this.

And have you ever noticed that Lou's eyes are real far apart? Just like Ovetchkin and his MOM!!
