NOTE: this happens over the offseason/ next season

to Arizona

to Tampa

Arizona gets another battle tested veteran, which is clearly something they are trying to amass (see Hjalmarsson and Stepan) and Tampa gets a cheaper, similarly productive player and a massive amount of cap relief, which they will desperately need for players like Koekkoek, Sustr, Namestnikov, even Kucherov in 2 years.

AZ taking a bad contract. They need to get more.

I believe Tampa would need to add. They can't give that contract away.

Tampa bay at ther very least well have to give a 1 rd pick to get ride of challahan.

Tampa adds. Also they aren't keeping Sustr especially at a raise.

Tampa adds. Callahan has negative value.

TB would need to send a prospect or pick as sweetener I guess.

High i'm going to ask again. because you never answer and maintain your position. Why would Tampa trade a first + to dump Callahan when they are currently sitting on 4 mill cap space, have other contracts expiring in time to give current players raises and the depth to replace departures from within? If they end up needing a little extra they can buy him out after next season.

Cause bayout don't work all the time like if you have front loaded contract like challahan if they buy him out they well have to still pay 4 mill a year for the next 3 year its like how lawson cruise got traded for nathan horton.

High the buyout calculator on cap friendly is a thing of beauty. Cap hit remains at like 1.5 mill for the buyout. And when will you get it they don't need the space bad enough to do these trades and a 1st and top prospect is a lot more than Crouse. Crouse wasnt for Horton either it was for Bolland.

Lawson crouse was traded WITH Dave Bolland, not FOR Nathan Horton lol.

However @jbs I wouldn’t say a 1st or a top prospect is worth a lot more than Lawson Crouse. Because when that trade was made he was a very recent top 5 pick, which makes him a first round top prospect lol now the fact that he hasn’t become a star yet is irrelevant to the trade, it’s what he was at the time. The pick or top prospect HiGH247 says you need to add may never turn out either, but you still value them that way when you’re trading it.
