7.143 caphit

What makes it interesting, the 1st year of the contract, you have to pay 14 million for him of that. And at least 10 million, even if there's a lockout.

And when you have to pay 14 million, and the caphit is only 7.1 million, it means, you have to pay at least 61.2 million to catch the cap floor, because the floor is 54.3 million and you pay 6.9 million more in exact salaries.

Could Nashville's financial situation handle this?

Nashville can't put RFA Weber anymore to team-called salary arbitration to avoid offer-sheets, because you can use that option only once in player's career.

With 70.3 million cap, the offer-sheet compensations should be these:

+9.013 million average salary (from 5 highest salary years) = four 1st round picks
7.210 - 9.012 million average salary = two 1st round picks + 2nd round pick + 3rd round pick
5.408 - 7.209 million average salary = 1st round pick + 2nd round pick + 3rd round pick
3.605 - 5.407 million average salary = 1st round pick + 3rd round pick
1.803 - 3.604 million average salary = 2nd round pick

If Nashville would let Weber walk, they would get two 1st round picks + 2nd + 3rd as a compensation. The average for 5 highest yearly salaries is 9.00 million with this offer-sheet, and it goes slightly under the highest compensation.


Would it be better asset management to take the picks, and keep Suter (if you can't keep financially both) than keep Weber and let Suter go for possibly free?

Interesting scenario.

I would imagine Detroit Red Wings could be more than interested doing this.
I didn't think it would happen, but I was wrong. I get the feeling that this only happened because they were working on a trade and it wasn't happening fast enough or to the liking of the Flyers and it still may end up turning into a trade if Nashville doesn't want to match that. It would not be the smartest thing to accept the picks for this since the Flyers' picks are going to be very near #30 in my opinion.

Unreal call... but let's move the conversation to the other thread. We can keep this in the Trade Board HOF. Right up there w/ RRP who called the Neal for Gogo deal, too.
