$8.25 million AAV.

Good player, but man...that's a lot of scratch.

$25 million/year through 2020 to Voracek, Giroux, Couturier & Andrew MacDonald. $20 million/year to the forwards listed there. That's not bad. Including MacDonald in your top 4 is slightly problematic.

So much money tied up by the Flyboys. Giroux/Voracek good enough to lead a team?

The D in 2015-16: Streit, Mac, Del Zotto, Medvedev, Schultz, Schenn, Gudas. They've got a few first-rounders coming up, but next year is going to be rough.

They're good enough to lead a team, but not the team in question. Crosby/Malkin or Toews/Kane would miss the playoffs by 10 points with that D and G behind them.

We'll see what happens if and when Morin, Sanheim, Provorov, Hagg, Gostisbehere all make it.

How many buyouts can one team have on their payroll? Is there no limit? Philly has at least two more (Lecavalier and MacDonald) coming up here.

2 on their cap hit (amnesty ones don't count). At least that was the last CBA's rules.

Also think it's max of 2 retained salaries at one point.

Philly has zero buyouts on their cap hit, both were amnesty buyouts (Bryz, Briere). Grossman is a retained salary for the next season.

Some good names coming up, but that's still a lot of 'if'.

The Flyers' greatest asset is also their greatest curse: Ed Snider is more than willing to spend whatever it takes to make a winner, but his meddling has led to some ridiculously impetuous moves.

I think you can have 3 retained salaries on the books but I could be wrong.


Yup, it's 3:

Quote:
I won't paste the full limitations on Retained Salary Transactions (you can check them in the CBA in 50.5 (e) (iii) (C) if you want to read legalese), but they boil down to:

You can keep up to 50% of the cap and salary commitment to a player you trade.
You can only have such commitments to three players at any given time. (e.g. Toronto currently has that with Ben Scrivens, Matthew Lombardi, and Matt Frattin. They can't add another until one of those contracts runs out.)
The total of your "retained salary" commitments cannot exceed 15% of the cap's upper limit. (So under the current $64.3 million cap, a team can retain up to $9.6 million.)
You cannot reacquire such a player for one year after the trade -- unless his contract has expired in the meantime (i.e., he became a free agent, signed a new deal, and you traded for him).
Any single player contract cannot be used in a "retained salary transaction" (trade) like this more than twice. (So if L.A. had agreed to retain some of Scrivens' salary when dealing him to Edmonton, the Oilers could not do the same if they traded him on this contract.)
