It gives the team less than $2M in cap space. If they are going to bring someone else in they are going to need more room

Yep, but only makes sense if they were already talking with someone about another piece and needed to clear some on top of whomever they planned on moving.
That or they just aren't planning on playing him and had to put him on waivers in order to move him to the taxi and if someone claims him, then they have that salary to spend


I really don't see the Caps doing much at trade deadline.  What could they afford to do that would help them?  Unless they plan on moving a big piece, but I don't see that happening until after season.


Hey Maybe they plan on trading Kuzy for Forsberg and saving 2mil a year to boot?  (like Nashville would be interested)

Lee is on LTIR, that's how they got cap room. We need to somehow get Bennett from Calgary. If the NYI get him as well, look out.

Panik cleared waivers. Opens up a couple bucks if we choose to spend it..

It would've been nice if the Devils sent these two to a different division ...

Yikes.  Like we need the Islanders improving their squad.   I thought the Isles were in cap trouble this year?.
Oh, and Isles Anders Lee and Johnny Boychuck on LTIR give them 13mil in LTIR Cap space.


Devils now have $36.5m in Cap space.  (which is about $15m below the cap floor)  Not sure how the cap floor works with guys on LTIR.  Sure looks like Devils will be buying in the off season.


Hell the Devils could afford Ovi, Backy, Kuzy & Carlson combined.

Anyone think sitting Sprong is pre-dealish?

Didn't they just sign him to two year contract for peanuts.  $725k


He's definitely worth 725k for this year and next.


I don't think it's trade issue.  What would he be worth in a trade?  He's definitely not shaving salary Cap so...


Meh.  I think it's just to give Carr some work.  Maybe it's Carr they want to move, so they want to get him playing?

In an interview the other day, king hendrik said he knew before he signed with the Caps he was going to need open heart surgery. How much of that do you think he shared with management?

Caps need to dump this contract too...

Trade deadline hit at 3:00pm local, I havenít seen anything regarding the Caps hit the wires.
So hopefully they didnít make any dumb trades for a rental.

The more I think about this, the more I actually like it.  My first thought was that the price was too high.  But then I started thinking:
1) Vrana is persona non grata with Lavy.
2) Panik is already on the taxi squad and we dumped his contract. 
3) Apparently the 2021 draft class is weaker than weíve recently had so losing that 1st may hurt less.
4) since Mantha is signed for 3 more years, this isnít a rental.

So, itís one guy Lavy isnít playing plus one guy on the taxi squad plus a weaker than normal first plus the 2022 2nd for another Tom Wilson signed for the balance of our Cup window with Ovy/Backy.

In that light, Iím liking this trade more and more.

Lavs had no patience left for Vrana and he was so light on the puck it was maddening!

Fat Tony is definitely a playoff body, I like it!

Didn't see that coming.. I'll miss Jake The Snake, but he never really turned into what everyone was hoping. Sounds like Mantha is a big boy who can play! Guess we'll see.. Raffl doesn't sound bad either!

Jake can thank Sheary for taking his spot! If he had Sheary's tenacity on the puck this wouldn't of happened.
