Marleau ties Howe
No new Avs added
Peter Baugh: No new Colorado Avalanche players were added to the COVID protocol list yesterday. The team is off until at least Wednesday.
Two Canucks remain
Nylander 9 for 9
Luke Fox: Toronto Maple Leafs forward William Nylander came in close contact with a person who tested positive and had been isolating. He had nine negative tests in nine days before rejoining the team.
“I was pretty nervous. Thank God, nobody got it.”
Chris Johnston: Nylander is off the COVID protocol list and when he returns to the lineup depends on when he thinks his fitness level is good. They play tonight against the Canucks.
A potential new buyout strategy for teams to use?
Puck Pedia: Potential buyout strategy.
“If it costs a 4th Round Pick for a team to retain ~$1.2M for 25% of a season, what’s the cost to retain $500K for a few years? Could we see a new buyout strategy?
However, if #LetsGoOilers retained 50% in a trade to Team A, then Team A retained 25% in a trade to Team B, & Team B bought him out, the buyout cap hits for the next 4 years would be:
Team A: $480,000/year
Team B: $480,000/year
What would #LetsGoOilers or a team need to pay (in draft picks or other assets) to Team A + Team B for them each to have a $480K Cap Hit for the next 4 years?
Is that cost worth it to EDM to save $960K/year cap hit for 4 years?
Perhaps we see this with future buyouts.”
