    Re: Around the League - Playoffs 2019

    Yeah, there's not a world of difference.

    If Tarasenko was a borderline 50 goal scorer every year, okay, yeah, I'd listen to the superstar argument.

    But a borderline 40 goal scorer that's never...

    Re: Around the League - Playoffs 2019

    Tarasenko is only a superstar if you think MaxPac was one too.

    The standards sure are low if that's the case.

    It was a weird year for sure. They even bucked the trend of having large contributions from players being dirt cheap. Before someone says "But Binnington!", they had Jake Allen as a $4.5M backup. I...

    That's patently false, but sure.

    Shrug. He'd be an ok pick, but I'm not sure I'd take him at 15. Rather trade down to 20-25, get an extra second or third if that was the case.

    He's another player along the long list that do...

    Not just last year. Almost every year since The Charlatan has come into service, we've focused on one type of player in each draft.

    Outside of Cole Caufield, who I would be so happy if he fell to 15, I would shrug and be whatever with any of those players except Lavoie probably. I would take York before all of them.

    Nope, you can't, but you can come close.

    The max $ a player can make next season is 20% of the cap, so $16.6M. x2, that would be $33.2M.

    If Karlsson were to theoretically get that, according to...

    Unfortunately, we're not in 2016 anymore. That Erik Karlsson is long gone.

    Unless they move Weber or Petry, you couldn't fit him even if you wanted to. If Karlsson was a LHD, though, that would be a lot more interesting.

    But even then, his injury history scares the shit...

    The Blues tie the series up 2-2.

    Chara might have a broken jaw from getting a puck in the face. He didn't play after getting hit by the puck.

    Yeah, it's free in the sense that you don't have to give up assets to acquire them.

    But it's not really "free." Teams have to abide by the salary cap. If you think they're "free", go ask Edmonton...
