There will likely be at least a body at no less than $550k being sent down, but that still leaves barely more than 5.5 million.
Ideally moving Liles would be massive. I am really starting to hate the decision to buyout Komisarek over Liles. The Leafs could have bought out Liles, then did a Non-Compliance buyout on Komisarek. They would currently have $7.275 million in cap space before sending anybody down, and only be left with 1.5 million of Komi’s deal next year. That would be a much better situation then they face currently.
Now if Nonis can move Liles and not have to hold back any more than 1 million in cap space, and that turns him into an asset so we get something, its basically all a wash, but right now it really seems necessary to move Liles.
I wonder what Liles at 2.875 million a year would be worth to a team. Not a bad cap hit, and it could be a steal if he could get back to being a top 4 who can put up 40 or so points logging top pairing PP minutes. It keeps coming back to the Islanders as they should be very concerned with adding a PP quarter back, as I can’t imagine they want to take a step back after making the playoffs last year.]]>
Haha none of the proposals were really serious. I always need to have a Schenn to Toronto proposal, i’m still torn.
Franson fits a need for NYR and Girardi fits a need for TOR, however Girardi is the far better player. You’re right, a trade like that couldn’t work this season, but i was just entertaining the idea. You don’t realize how jealous i am of the rangers having Macdonagh and Girardi. Two of the game’s top defensive defensemen imo, Staal could be added in there too, however i’ve never been a fan of his.]]>
