<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>jonesryan</b></div><div>Do I agree that Kadri may have to be moved in the future? Most likely yes. For this package? Absolutely not. The fit is there with Carolina for Kadri but there's a good argument that the package coming back isn't nearly enough. Kadri is a 2C on most teams and arguably would be Carolina's 1C beside Aho. That's lethal. &amp; all Toronto has coming back is Faulk and a pick? Faulk is an offensive guy, probably wouldn't even see time on either of Toronto's PP units. Leafs only use 1 dman on each, Rielly on the first isn't changing, and Dermott can easily slide in on the 2nd PP once Gardiner leaves (he's solid at both ends of the ice and is way cheaper than Faulk). So Faulk wouldn't have a spot until the PK and he's not the type of guy to be used just for killing penalties. On top of that, Kadri has 3 years left after this one where Faulk only has 1 left and could walk as a UFA cause he'll ask for more money which the Leafs can't give him when they'll have bigger contracts in Marner and Matthews signed plus Dermott next offseason, plus Freddy and Rielly in a couple more. Doesn't make sense for the Leafs to give up the games best 3C in the league for a guy they'll barely use and won't be able to use his most skilled areas a lot.

That being said, as I said Kadri to Carolina is a good fit IMO.. just not for this package and not for Faulk at all really. IMO, if I were the Leafs and Canes, a Kadri for Brett Pesce straight up is fair. Both teams get what they need (Carolina gets top 6 forward, arguably 1C, and Toronto gets a top 4 right handed, defensively minded guy who they can use on the PK). Kadri has 3 years left after this one, Pesce has 5 years left. Kadri has a cap hit of $4.5M per season, Pesce has a cap hit of $4.025M per. Toronto even saves a bit of cap in this idea but Toronto also ends up paying Pesce more in real dollars which saves Carolina more money long term to pay guys like Aho, Svechnikov, Terravainen, and other guys. The argument for the deal being 1-for-1 and not more is the fact that even though Pesce has 2 more years of control on him, Toronto is giving far more offence and Kadri is good in his own end too. And Pesce makes the Leafs an even more well rounded team. Both teams also trade from a strength to address a weakness in their teams. Win-win deal for both teams</div></div>

i was actually gonna use pesce in first place but went with falk, the reason being as good as kadri is and good contract hes 4 years older than pesce and thought may want more, i agree something else needs to be added to the deal tho

Sujet: marleau
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Jamiepo</b></div><div>First of all I don’t think marleau goes for this and secondly I don’t think you can buy out a 35+ contract but I may be wrong.</div></div>

hi, what i have read into is that it looks like you are taking the full salary cap hit every year for the player you buy out of a 35+ contract with no relief over multiple years, i found this in buyout faqs, hope it may help because i wasnt sure also


35-plus Contracts
There is a significant amount of confusion on whether 35-plus contracts do or do not receive a cap benefit from being bought-out. It was originally believed that there is no cap-benefit; however, later in 2013 it became widely thought that there is a benefit.

The most recent understanding is that bought out 35-plus contracts do not receive a cap hit benefit, as is explained by Michael Russo. All other details of the buyout remain the same as any other buyout; therefore, what buying a 35-plus contract does do is decrease the teams salary expenses.

For example, Chris Phillips was signed to a 2-year 35-plus contract which began in 2014-15 and expires in 2015-16. His salary is $2.5M and his cap hit is $2.5M for both season. If Chris were to be bought out during the summer of 2015, the buyout would last twice the length of his remaining contract - 2 years, and the buyout cost each year would be $833,333. His cap hit would be $2.5M in 2015-16, and $0 in 2016-17. However, the salary expenses in 2015-16 would decrease by $1.67M from $2.5M to $833k
