Duclair, Thomson , two 2nds for Boeser and Ericsson ?? No salary retained by Van
Why are we acquiring Boeser and why are we paying so much for him when we are also taking on an albatross?

It's one thing to do the playoffs without fans, since there are no player salaries to worry about and, of course, the number of teams and games is greatly limited. HRR was a little over $5B and tv revenues accounted for around $800M. The rest is primarily tickets, concessions and parking, merchandise, advertising, licensing. There will be some additional revenue from increased streaming subs and a little more advertising revenue as people flick to the YouTube game summaries, but there won't be any new tv deals this season and no Olympics boost this season. Licensing from online betting could be substantial but unlikely to bridge the gap sufficiently. There will be owners - and not just Melnyk - who will not be able to meet payroll after a couple months of no in person hockey. If there is still no viable vaccine, what then?
both Stepan and Demers have one year left to FA. they'd likely walk away.DefenceWinsChampionships wrote:I'd rather trade the isles 1st and Logan brown + for a young top six forward. Barrett Hayton and Demers/Stepan for Brown and a 1st? Arizona looking to shed salary and don't draft until the 4th Rd this year and are down draft picks next year. Probably not realistic

i think we could probably spend internally 12-14 million internally on RFA's but that's 4 more million that can either go by taking on a bad LTIR contract or something else done.
something will have to happen.
