its the next wave that might get tricky with Luke Hughes coming out of his ELC and Kuokkanen and Sharangovich potentially coming out of their bridge contract. And if Mercer is as good as we believe etc

Plus Quinn Hughes.

Went ahead and looked at the Devils, too, because why not. Here are a list of players the Devils will need to re-sign next year (I'm adding Kuok and Sharangovich to the list, but that has to happen this season). They'll have $44.5m in cap room (to get to the ceiling) and need to re-sign:

  1. Miles Wood $4m
  2. Jesper Bratt $5m
  3. Jesper Boqvist $3m
  4. Jack Hughes $8m (I see a breakout coming)
  5. Janne Kuokkonen $3m
  6. Yegor Sharangovich $3.5m
  7. PK Subban (Walk)

In summary: anyone worried about Tarasenko's contract or Hamilton's contract is uninformed. That puts us $27m below the cap ceiling next year, AKA $7m below the goddamned floor! 

Also a pre-emptive response; I know I'm off on some of these contracts. It was just a little mini thought exercise.

Not sure why anyone who's at all familiar with the Devils' cap would think that taking on Tarasenko's remaining two seasons could ever be an issue.  It's obvious the Devils can fit him in with no problems whatsoever.

That being said, assuming that the Devils did actually trade for him AND he managed to stay healthy, the short term remaining on his deal gives the Devils tons of flexibility.  If he kills it in his first year, they can sell high and move him in the offseason, to someone who may be closer to winning a Cup.  Obviously if they hang onto him and then he has another good year...not necessarily sure that I'd extend him (hopefully there will be options to replace him from within at that point, for much less $)...of course if the Devils are in a playoff hunt and they decide not to deal him at the 2022-23 deadline, yeah, they probably hang onto him and lose him for no return.  Can't always flip everybody for pieces that may or may not help you in 2-3 years.

I see him as a two-year rental that could really pay off nicely (especially since they may not have to give up that much outside of money to get him)...and should someone else decide to sign him to a 3+ year deal, we'll look back and say "Glad we got what we did out of him, and glad he's not here now"

he should cost anywhere between 7 and 11.5m by then

Then we’d be in cap hell.

im actually legit worried that goons like him ruins one of our young guys career like Mike Richards did to Savard and like Matt Cooke did to David Booth. All it takes is a second.

If you’re legit worried about something like that, you’re inventing things to worry about. I’m not losing any sleep over Ryan Reaves. He’s a wanna-be Tom Wilson. Tom Wilson is actually good though.

I know Richards had a bad hit on Savard, but wasn't it Cooke who effectively ended his career, too?

Reaves is old and slow. He ain't gonna do much.

Maybe we can get Tom Wilson and Reaves to give each other career ending injuries and get rid of 2 problems at once.

I mean it kind of sounds inevitable…
