If he signs with the Caps it might be a little less than on the open market, but I'd guess $5-5.5MM per year for 3-4 seasons.
Open market adds 500K and an extra year, seeing as it's a bad free agent class.

Can the 14th overall draft pick net the Lightning a Top 4D via trade?
Gavin Lee
5:40
Top 4D is a big range, but no I don't think so.
Not on it's own.
JSal

Likelihood of the Ducks bringing Eaves back?
Gavin Lee
5:41
There is definitely interest on both sides. Depends on what he's asking for.
5:42
Everyone should remember he could turn back into a pumpkin at any minute though.
Adam

Do you think the expansion draft will shake up the cap situation around the league?
Gavin Lee
5:42
Vegas itself is another spot for bad contracts to land, but they aren't going to take 10 on.
This deal:

What's the structure of the TVR-Krueger package going back to Chicago? Swap of seventh round picks...
Gavin Lee
5:43
TVR will be selected in the draft, so Kruger will be traded for a conditional late-round pick most likely.
But this is exactly the kind of cap shake-up we'll see.
5:44
Kruger's 3MM hit isn't even that bad, but the Hawks are in such a tight situation..
It's why I was so surprised to see Panik re-sign.
Patrick
5:44
ok I had read that and that was the only report so I wasn't sure if it was true or not
Gavin Lee
5:44
This is re: Oshie signing with Caps. It's not necessarily done yet, but Shannon doesn't just throw stuff out there.
Mike
5:45
Top hidden gem in the upcoming draft.
Gavin Lee
5:45
I'm not sure how hidden he is I guess, but I love Ivan Lodnia.
5:46
Absolutely buried on that Erie team, I think he is a stud that someone is going to get in the back half of the first round if not the beginning of the second.
Robert
5:46
Do you think teams would be willing to offer sheet Drouin? likely deal would have to be in range of giving up 1st, 2nd and 3rd round picks.
Gavin Lee
5:46
I think a bunch of teams would make that trade, 1/2/3 for Drouin+extension. I don't think anyone will offer sheet him.
5:47
I've quit dreaming on offer sheets. They are so rare.
Chris
5:47
Who do you think the Avalanche will take in the draft?
Gavin Lee
5:48
Depends who goes at #3 obviously, but Cody Glass or Casey Mittelstadt could be the pick.
If Heiskanen is still available he's also in the mix
5:49
I'm personally not as sold on Vilardi as everyone else.
Mike
5:49
7th overall for dumba?
Gavin Lee
5:50
Arizona wouldn't do that. Not worth it when they're still building talent.
Dumba gets expensive next summer, and Minnesota doesn't have much leverage going into expansion.
Patrick
5:50
So what do you think the chances are oshie is back with the caps ?
Gavin Lee
5:51
Very, very good.
5:52
When his shooting percentage comes back down we'll see if he's really a 30 goal man though.
Robert
5:52
It would be a lot more interesting of an offseason if those started flying around.
Gavin Lee
5:52
Offer sheets? It would be crazy if more teams used them.
The Athletic just published a piece saying the Leafs should offersheet Parayko, and it's not a terrible idea for them.
5:53
If you are in the $5.88-$7.85MM range, which a ton of them would be, it's punting on one draft for an elite player.
5:54
Sure, it's giving up his most valuable years but if you have other cheap players it can be done.
Robert
5:54
NFL teams do for quarterbacks, they punt two drafts.
