Suter’s contract in Dallas- 4 years $3.6M cap hit with $14.6M being paid in actual dollars.
Suter’s contract if Guerin traded him at 50% retention- 4 years $3.7M cap hit with $5M being paid in actual dollars.
And you were in the room and know that was possible?
What room would I have to be in to prove that I have a basic understanding of the NHL CBA?
The part of the room where there needs to someone else on the other side of a trade? Maybe like others I’m just not getting it.
If you’re the Dallas GM, which one of those contracts would you rather pay for?
I won’t dismiss your idea like others. I don’t have blind faith in Guerin.
But I also acknowledge there are scenarios Dallas passed on a trade only to take on this contract after the fact.
Consider Dallas had eyes on another free agent defenseman and settled on Suter after Plan A fell apart. They may not have thought much of the trade possibility at the time it was offered.
