Holland is sounding cocky. He better be sure he's getting Stamkos.

It's not all about Stamkos though.

 

There's Okposo, Eriksson, Ladd, Backes, Lucic, Radulov etc.

According to these guys the Leafs have a tad over $7 million...http://www.spotrac.c...aple-leafs/cap/

 

That said - I've never been too keen on all the cap related stuff, and for what it's worth I was under the impression that the Leafs had a ton of space, but then again signing their recent acquisition goalie Andersen probably took a big chunk of that space.

They still have yet to re-sign 5 more players. So even with the $7 according to that website, they are in a cap crunch.

 

That's not to say they won't trade a crap ton of people to make space. But as of now the top 3 teams in the running are.

 

1. Tampa

2. Detroit

3. Buffalo

 

Detroit as it stands is the richest team amongst the 4 teams going after Stamkos. We have $24 million. Buffalo has $22 million. Tampa has $18 million, Toronto has $3.7 million ($7 million if you go by sportrac)

Just to put things into perspective here:

 

Stan Bowman gave up Teuvo Teravainen to move Bryan Bickell's contract. Ken Holland went from 16th pick to 20th pick in the draft and on top of that got a 2nd round pick to make up for the lost 3rd round pick.

 

And supposedly Ken Holland sucks and Stan Bowman is god because his father was  god.

"And for the 2016 draft pick, The Red Wings select... Steven Stamkos.. Be ready guy we're coming for you" - KH while he's high as a kite.

Love the deal. Can't see how anyone would hate it. This will be a LeftWinger approval.

I'm waiting to see how many will be joining the Ken Holland bandwagon still. 

 

Maybe a few. Maybe a s*** ton if we land Stamkos. There might not be enough room.

Excellent deal. I thought he was losing the 1st round pick entirely, but he only traded down to 20th.

If we still manage to get Fabbro....

Got rid of Datsyuk's contract, got 20th first round pick, and 2nd round pick for next year. 

 

He's going hard after Stamkos.

Yup.

 

Another 'ho-hum' draft, and free agency.

If you're wrong you owe me gold before Legion comes out.

Still wouldn't give up Nyquist. He's got much more value than cap space deal. I'd rather do 2nd round + Jurco/Pulk

Absolutely I would pay that price. Depending, of course, on which young player. Pulkkinen, Jurco, Nyquist, Tatar yes. Mantha, AA, Larkin no.

Trade Pav, Nyquist, 2nd. That is fine with me. We'll worth opening all that cap room.

It is well known that we aren't looking for depth, we are looking for impact top players. This kukla guy just doesn't have a clue. I prefer to listen to what McKenzie, Dregger, et al have to say over a blogger.

You would trade Pav contract, Nyquist and 2nd just to clear $7.5 million dollars? How about some return?? What if we can't sign s*** with the $7.5? We would lose Nyquist and a 2nd pick for nothing.

 

That's bad management Lefty.

 

If it was Jurco and 2nd round conditional pick on the condition that we land Stamkos then I'd be okay with it. 

 

You don't give away picks, players just to move cap space without some guarantee. What if Stamkos ends up re-signing with Tampa and we've struck out and end up with Radulov for $7 million for 2 years or something lol. 

 

That's just terrible management. If Holland succumbed to this idiocracy I'll be the first to protest outside his house in Northville to fire him.

Don't want Subban, I heard he was a turnover machine.

And a "thug"?

Piece of s*** or not he would a be a bad acquisition for his production and market value.

$6 mill cap hit with 20 goals on Kopitars line..? We had a rookie score 23 this year on a declining 35 year olds line.
