2018 3rd round pick

James Reimer (84 ovr)

The signing of Tukka Rask (83 ovr) allowed me to trade Reimer, saving myself 1.5M in cap space without sacrificing quality in goaltending. This deal gives me a solid back-up goaltender in Markstrom and an additional pick in the upcoming draft. It was a pleasure dealing with Toronto's GM, and the Tampa Bay Lightning wish them the best of luck this season.

Indeed. This trade helps the gain approximately 4.5-5.0M in cap space in order to climb above the salary cap floor and be capable of playing again.

Reimer will also jump in as the immediate starter for the team as we look to get back on track after the unfortunate events of Weeks 3 and 4(aka this sim).
