  1. These Trade tree videos are always fascinating to me! Love them.
  2. I would be hesitant on Lapierre at #10. (I'm not comfortable with his 3 concussions already).
  3. I should add, with the cap staying flat, Chevy needs to weaponize our cap space. This will be Chevy’s biggest offseason test as a GM. Not just drafting and developing anymore, he needs to mould this team into a contender utilizing the assets they have.
  4. The Jets are not in a complete rebuild. The have one of the top 3 goalies in the league, elite Top 6 talent on the wings and a point per Game Center all under the age of 27 (except for the Captain). They have Buff’s ( and possibly Little’s) cap space and they now have a shot at the #1 pick. They also have some quality prospects on the back end coming in Samberg and Heinola plus Niku might make a nice adder in a trade. They legitimately need a 2C and a top 4 defender (with some size) and can use the cap space and perhaps the depth on W to address. If they happen to win the lottery,
  5. The Davis Sanchez penalties and ensuing kickoff are at the 3:35 mark of the video. Good memory @Eternal optimist
  6. https://www.sportsnet.ca/football/cfl/cfl-asking-federal-government-150m-financial-aid/ This can't be good.
  7. I haven't heard that about Wheeler before (i.e. character issues). Is that based on him not signing with his draft team, an extrapolation of "ruffled feathers" or some specific off-ice or dressing room issues from back then? I know he was an off-the-board pick when the Gretzky-led Coyotes drafted him right out of high school. I also think it is pretty well known that he is an intense guy, so I could see how that might rub some people the wrong way.
  8. I've had a subscription for a couple of years now. The writing is top notch. As far as sustainability, there was some recent news on its capital/financial situation: https://www.axios.com/the-athletic-fundraising-round-series-d-e7026194-ccc7-4ec2-8415-6b8902c9a11a.html To date, they are still losing money, but apparently they expect that to turn to profit in the current year: I go mainly for the NHL coverage, but there is a bit of CFL coverage as well. All the other major sports are covered extensively.
  9. But ... but... Maurice always favours vets over the young guys. 😉
  10. Aim higher. More like Matthews/Marner money. If he scores 50 within the next 2 seasons and plays a solid 200 foot game as a power forward at 21 or 22 years old, he should be looking at Ovechkin type money in terms of % of cap when he signed his previous deal. That was 16.8%, which would translate to about $13.5 million. I expect he will be well north of $10m, likely North of $12m on his next deal if he lives up to his potential. He's off to a good start.
  11. According to Cap Friendly, he would still be RFA at the conclusion of this deal. The$9 million salary in year 3 though means a minimum qualifying offer of just under$10 million. If TB doesn't offer that then he would become aUFA.
  12. Allows for performance bonuses, which charge against the AAV (and cap if earned). $925K max on salary PLUS signing bonus. Performance bonuses can take it above. Check CapFriendly for details: https://www.capfriendly.com/players/ville-heinola
