Marchenko defected, that helped... a little.

But they are still over the the cap by $6.7M.

(all one-way contracts count in the off-season, read: Greening, LoVerde, Mueller)

If they are over the cap by more than $5.3M on the last day of camp

... they will have to use all of both Horton's and Lupul's LTIR room.

And that would be idiotic.

There's more, but I feel I'm wasting my time on you...
You predicted they would have to trade guys to fit under the cap. But I am not getting it? Where have these trades been? And will they be coming soon?
You also said Brown can't be resigned.
Stay away from predictions involving the Leaves. They will clearly use LTIR and there is nothing wrong or unusual about it. Teams like Arizona have been using it to cheat the cap and save $.
And to correct yet ANOTHER thing you said is wrong, you're trying to spin it as some lucky break Marchenko signed in the KHL. He did so because the Leaves placed him on waivers because they signed better players and he wouldn't crack their roster.

The grizzlies? They're doing great here in B.C. They kill and eat the tourists from southern Ontario who get near them to take selfies and try to tell the bears how wonderful a city TO is. Great for population control.

What part of before opening day do you not understand

... what other parts of the this did you not understand:

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.


Are you stupid Forest?

I dunno about "wrong" or "unusual" but how 'bout S T U P I D.

See there are smart ways and stupid ways to use LTIR.

But of course this is something you will never comprehend...

Yes because every one-way-contract player placed on waivers immediately signs in the KHL ! :lol:

Kadri on Lupul: "I think he's ready to go and I think he's excited about the season."

Statement From Joffrey Lupul

“IT’S WITH DEEP REGRET THAT I WILL BE UNABLE TO ATTEND TRAINING CAMP AND START THE SEASON WITH THE Leaves DUE TO INJURY. I PLEDGE TO WORK HARD WITH A VIEW TO RETURN TO PLAYING THIS SEASON. HOCKEY IS THE ONLY LIFE I HAVE KNOWN. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY EMOTIONAL TIME FOR ME. ACCORDINGLY, I WILL NOT BE MAKING ANY FURTHER COMMENT AT THIS TIME.”

Joffrey Lupul called out the Toronto Maple Leaves for their treatment of the winger on Sunday, saying the team cheats with the way it uses long-term injured reserve.

When someone pointed out his failed physical, he responded: “Haha failed physical? They cheat, everyone lets them.”

SEPTEMBER 14, 2017, 12:23 PM (EDT)

no surprise that both Nathan Horton and Joffrey Lupul failed their physicals, so they won’t make the team this year.

As for Lupul, it’s more surprising that the Leaves have gotten away with it for the second year in a row, considering his social media has seen him managing his injuries just fine. It seems like the Leaves won’t get in trouble for it though...
And two days ago:

September 15, 2017, 9:43 PM (EDT)

Jared Cowen is not happy with how he was treated by the Toronto Maple Leaves.

“I wish teams would have more of an interest in taking better care of their players instead of whatever their goal or mindset was there,” Cowen said in an interview with Adrian Dater of BSN Denver.com. “Basically, they got me, figured out that I was hurt, they didn’t want to deal with it and they got rid of me.”
Over the last coupla years other TO players have been mistreated in various ways including:

Robidas* Holland Corrado Leivo Michalek Laich Kessel Phaneuf Greening...

But we should not be surprised considering the GM's past history of gross misconduct;

The NHL won't even blink. Some teams are allowed to cheat. Some players are allowed to cheat. But hey it's all within the rules and unless Bettman wants to call someone out for using the rules,to circumvent the cap, well nothing gets done. But we get the Luongo rule. Even though Gillis acted perfectly within the rules.

Trading injured players for cap space or for getting to the cap floor is cheating buts it's allowed.

Why the PA isn't doing something I don't know.
The only HW the Canucks need

The Canucks did this for several years under Gillis/Gilman, and it was brilliantly effective.

The PA won't do anything about it because Lupul still gets paid, while the Leaves can go over the salary cap to pay another union member NHL dollars. The Union should be all in favour of cap circumvention.

You're not likley to see much whining or complaining from the owners until the Leaves really get an advantage from this. Kind of like how the Luongo rule became an issue when top-teams were leveraging it to widen their competitive advantage (Chicago, Vancouver, Detroit etc.).

Lupul and Cowen bitching about their situations speaks volumes about their loyalty to the club and Toronto's treatment of their players. I don't think you'd ever hear Salo or Bieksa talk that way if they had to undergo extra rehab so the team could stay ahead of the cap.

^^^^^

True about Salo and Bieksa but they never had their careers ended because of it. Maholtra was none to happy with his treatment and spoke out but he got another chance to play elsewhere.

When a team fucks around like this it ends careers. That's what the PA should be arguing about. Force teams to waive or buyout a player so they have a chance to play elsewhere.

Maybe the league should step in and Pronger them all so they can work :mrgreen:

Yeah Lupul calling out the Leaves publicly could force the leagues' hand to investigate this situation.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Why in the hell don't the Canucks find a couple injuries to permanently put Sutter and Louis on the shelf and save themselves 10 million + annually in cap space that they could use for good players ?

^ "rat" :mrgreen:

Many have suggested that Lupul and Robidas received the same offer:

"Even though you're healthy enough to play... quietly finish your careers on LTIR or

... we'll ship your ass to the AHL".

Interesting also that Horton actually showed up in TO to take his physical (most in his position skip it).

I have heard that Horton was working hard on a comeback.

No one should ever forget what ole you-know-who did to Mike Peluso (allegedly).
