Great news. Oshie is a heart and soul type guy, not the problem with this team.

Hopefully he signs the day after the expansion draft

Any guesses on the money?

6.5x4 is mine

Yeah, I do feel like signing him before the ED is kinda stupid. Why not get him to sign afterwards so we don't have to protect him...?

Why would he sign for 6 and a half years?

$6.5 X 4

After looking at the MB estimates I might be on the high side.

He obviously wants to be here, so maybe we get a hometown discount.

I'd be happy with $6m x 5 ... anything under that in AAV or term is a good job by Mac

Unless Oshie doesn't want to wait just in case (god for bid) he gets in a career ending car wreck or something over the next month.

Glad to see that he's viewed differently there. He was considered quite the opposite near the end of his time with the Blues and seemed like a lot of fans were glad when he was delt.

Drawer deals are technically against the rules. It was a big subject at GM meetings, so a deal with Oshie being "all but done" now but not made official until after the expansion draft could cost the Caps a sizable fine and a first-round pick.

For every GM and owner out there that might be willing to play fast and loose with expansion rules, there's other GMs and owners that are sticklers. So trying to get deals like that by the league's smell test will be risky.

I don't think signing Oshie is really a concern anyway. We can protect 7 forwards. Ovechkin, Backstrom, Oshie, MoJo, Kuznetsov, Burakovsky, Wilson. Who are you sweating losing? Vrana isn't eligible and they'd be doing us a favor taking Eller. Williams and Winnik are gone.

I'd miss Beagle, but let's be real. If Vegas doesn't take Grubauer or Schmidt, they're nucking futs. We don't have to protect Beagle. Protecting Oshie isn't a problem.

$11.5M for Oshie and Kuznetsov, it's the maximum we can afford.

Hopefully they have a plan in place to get rid of Orpik's contract.

Thinking 5.5 a year for him and around 6 a year for Kuz

I can see him and Kuz signing nearly identical contracts.

Orpiks and Ellers contracts HAVE to go

I find it strange Oshie is still in the area. He usually rushes straight back to Minnesota. Like it or not, perhaps he is staying in the area for an announcement with GMBM.

I saw on Twitter he played golf with Steve Czaban yesterday.

Would be stunning. What next, Alzner at 3 for $4 per?

Hmmm...getting a bunch of guys to come back for less than market value in order to keep the band together and go for the Cup might actually be a pretty powerful motivator and could unify the locker room. Unless someone gets resentful of any other player not living up to a big contract...
