Facts are Arizona and especially Carolina are a budget team , yes or no? Facts are recently especially Arizona they have been trading for contracts that make them save actual money cause they can't afford it and would love to spend less money than the actual floor salary
Yes they'd be doing us a favor by taking the contract but Now if we have to give up a 2nd or 3rd to also help them out in mutually beneficial transaction than forget it like it said and suck it up for the season
You make it sound like its such a big deal for them to take the contract off our hands, belive me karmanos would love nothing more than to spend 7 million less than he has to
Well not interested in giving up a 2nd or 3rd or a jurco ... As you mentioned I'm sure holland will only move the contract if he needs to free up space , I doubt we move that contract and then can't sign anyone
800 posts later, we get it... you think that teams should pay us for the privilege of taking on a cap hit.
Helm is infinitely replaceable with a younger, cheaper player. Paying players like helm 3-5 million chews through your cap... paying a comparable player 750k-2 million even if that player isn't quite as good allows teams to have an elite player or two.
I don't much like Chicago but they have this right... lock up high end players for big cash and let them help make cheaper young players better. If my choice is one Stamkos for 10 million or all of Helm, Abdelkater and Richards (TYPE) for 10 million I'll take Stamkos every time!
