That's what the bonus cushion is for. And even if he plays this year, I don't see him earning much of those bonuses to offset next year's salary cap.

I have been a big fan of Carrie Underwood since she was on Idol and I can tell you that she would NOT be a factor in Fisher moving to L.A. She is rarely here in L.A., spends most of her time in Tennessee, and she is not exactly the L.A. type. She has gone on record saying did NOT like living in L.A. during Idol and that she loves Ottawa.

So I think you can pretty much throw out that reasoning. Like others have said, I don't think Fisher is a big enough upgrade over Stoll to really make this worth it.

I don't want to speak for Johnny but I believe the point he was making was in regards to the 11-12 season. Assuming Schenn makes the team this year, he will be on the second year of his entry level contract. When Ponikarovski (likely) leaves the team that season Schenn will likely be earning at least a portion of those bonuses. Remember the top five from that draft were all considered NHL ready but the Kings were deep enough at center that they had the luxury of giving Schenn time to develop. Schenn could be quite good come the 11-12 season.

There's no bonus cushion in 2011-2012.

Hasn't DL brought up a couple of times that Schenn has a contract that is stuctured so that the bonuses are mostly unobtainable? This came out when he first brought up the idea of having Schenn break into the NHL as a forth liner. He basically said that Schenn understood that and worked with his agent and DL so that the first couple years of his contract are very difficult bonuses to acheive such as leading the team in points, assists, goals, etc. If so his cap hit would be much closer to the 875k base salary rather than his possible 3.1 mil.

Also LOL at Barry saying Doughty will still be tired from the Olympics considering by the playoffs last year he pretty clearly wasn't and was one of the Kings best players...

No one talks much about the Flames, but according to CapGeek they're currently sitting at 2.3M over the CAP with no bonus cushion.

Hagman (very underrated IMO), and Bourque could be interesting options for the Kings.

The Flames will probably try and move Kotalik first though.

I wouldn't be surprised if the guy we were going after in Atlanta was Andrew Ladd.

Doesn't make sense for Atlanta to trade away one of their biggest off season acquisitions. If anything, maybe the Kings are trying to move Ersberg to a team that needs a backup.

That is 13 million and the Kings still have to give Doughty another 3 million more, JJ another 3-4 million more and Simmonds another 2-3 million more. When you add all that up and subtract it from that 13 there is only about 4 million left so the Kings would have to move more salary out for these high priced guys people keep mentioning. Matt Barry touched on this too.

Edit, forgot to mention Poni and his 3.2, but Schenn will probably off set that next year.
lol. If we need to give Johnson 3-4 million more then I vote trade him. 5 million for Johnson is stupid he just had his first and I don't even want to call it an offensive breakout season because 36 points is barely a break out.

True, but it's not unheard of to have players be traded in the offseason twice. I believe that LA did that with Radek Bonk to get Garon.

I also remember us being interested in him (alledgely) when Capgate was going on with the Hawks.

Nope.

Without speaking directly to the topic of Mike Fisher (whom admittedly I know virtually nothing about) coming to the Kings, I've seriously lost count of the times I've heard/read "Player X just built/rented Xanadu nearby!" and then within a few months, the guy's on the other side of the continent (one big/famous example: Charles Barkley back in the early-90s, before being traded to Phoenix)...

Unless he has a NTC or NMC that doesn't mean anything.

Bonk was with the Kings less than 30 seconds and he was acquired to make that trade.

He has a NMC this year and then a limited NTC for the rest of his contract.

IIRC, Calgary was hoping that Kotalik would go the same route as Cristobal Huet and sign overseas. Otherwise I think they plan on burying him in the AHL. He's got a NTC and, even if he'd waive it, Calgary would have to pay to get someone to take him.

Kopitar Spezza Simmonds ?

Could Stoll, Williams and a 1st get Spezza?

Thoughts?
Come on.
Could Fisher, Foligno and 1st get Kopitar?

That's absurd. He'll play with Fisher on the 2nd line and get 1st unit PP minutes.
