It sounds like Shero has no intention to trade any prospects so I doubt we ever called Ottawa about Karlsson

Pageau out for ≥6 mo. We might as well dish McLeod and a 2nd in 2020 for Duchene now.

slight cap circumvention (brought down his salary by a million or so), but he's getting into the cheaper years, so no point in playing. he might as well collect the cash while being fake retired / injured.

Fans of other teams when they sign a player to a bullshit contract "well hey, if it's legal as per the CBA then it's a valid loophole!"

Fans of other teams when the Devils do it "that's not allowed! he pushed it TOO FAR!"

Red Wings will be a disaster this year. Not that Zetterberg was great anymore but they’re pretty much rudderless now. Getting Hughes would be a shot in the arm though

Ottawa put is condition in the San Jose deal that they can’t trade him back to the eastern conference. The send were trading Karlsson in the conference no matter thenhail (dumb though because they are going to suck anyways)

That was my point the whole time. Dorion is an amateur. GMs waited him out and the guy in San Jose got lucky. If youre going to rebuild. get the best return.

They still have no first this year. Horrid.

they opted for BRADY TKACHUK when they knew Hughes would be available, Karlsson was leaving, Duchene likely wouldn't re-sign, and traded Hoffman. Just incredible how bad that foresight was. So bad even that they'd be better off trading Duchene back to Colorado just for the 1st back, but Colorado wouldn't even do that if Duchene wanted to return.
