    We have to many lefties, G as RHD on the 3rd pair getting ~15 min is fine.

    But wtf, having Staal's salary cap untill 2025? Thats 8 fucking years carrying around salary for no one.

    On the other hand - one of them must be tradeable to some team with a lot of cap space. I dont know their contract details, but pack them with a pick and send them away could be an option?

    But then you have a $5.5M third pairing D... makes it really tough to field a strong defense when you can't pay better players because of the anchor on the 3rd pair.

    Versus a $5.7M third pairing defenseman. Also an anchor.

    ^This

    There will be an anchor no matter who they buy out. I think Giradi would be the best to keep. He is more of a leader and plays with more balls then Staal. Seeing Staal on the 3rd pair would annoy the fuck out of me. Giradi would atleast play with some heart, block shots etc.

    Staal would still count against the cap though in the minors. They would still have no room to sign someone if he were sent to the minors.

    No it wouldn't because who would be able to take his spot? I would be more pissed to be wasting $5M against the cap in the minors than having him play.

    Do we have any concern that Smith is going to sign the same exact deals that Staal and G signed when they were his age? What's the point of replacing one with the other?

    Pretty sure they will give him max 4 years and not give him any NTC/NMC. Not over 5m either.

    I can't see him getting more than $4-4.5M max. And he is a more physical defenseman than any def next we have. He is the type of defender we need, has that streak of nastiness and is willing to drop the gloves. I honestly liked the Smith/Skjei pairing the best out of anyone else. Would be nice if Vegas would grab Klein and the the team buy out Girardi honestly.
