Flames Flames re-sign Lazar (2 yrs, $950k AAV)

https://www.nhl.com/flames/news/flam...?tid=282300716

Quote:
The Calgary Flames announced today that they have signed forward Curtis Lazar to a two-year contract.

The Flames originally acquired Lazar on March 1st, 2017 in a trade with Ottawa that included defenceman Mike Kostka in exchange for Jyrki Jokipakka and Calgary's second round pick in 2017. The native of Salmon Arm, BC was a first round pick (17th overall) by the Senators in the 2013 NHL Draft.

Lazar played in four games with Calgary following the trade, recording three points from one goal and two assists. He also appeared in one playoff game with the Flames. Lazar has played 180 regular season games in the NHL and recorded 39 points (13G, 26A) and 36 PIM. The 22-year-old captained the gold medal-winning Team Canada squad at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championships in Toronto and Montreal.

AAV: $950,000

Should be some good motivation for Lazar to pick up his game!

Cheaper than I was expecting, but in hindsight I was probably too generous in my estimation.

That's 2 of the 3 main guys done now. Getting these two in at this price point, does give him options to look at a slightly longer deal with Bennett's camp if they'll entertain that.

Perfect! Just like Ferland. 2 years is more than enough time for them to show us what they got. Otherwise there will be other options.

That leaves about 7.16 million in cap space

Bennett the only roster regular left.

Gillies, Hathaway, Kulak, Rittich, and Wotherspoon are also needing of new contracts but likely will be easy deals to get done.

Great deal. Hoping Bennett's deal is longer than 2 years, will be in tough if all three of these guys have decent seasons and need to be re-upped at the same time.

Treliving is a bloody wizard. Sign Bennett for 2m x 3 and then let's get that Iggy/Jagr deal done!

I think Bennett might also get a 2 year deal, $2 MM a year.

Leaving 5 mil in cap space.

Brouwer for 1st Round Pick 2018
Stajan for 2nd Round Pick 2018

1st 2018+2nd 2018+Andersoon+Gillies for Duchene

Sign Jagr 1 year for $1 MM

Gaudreau-Monahan-Duchene
Tkachuk-Bennett-Jagr
Ferland-Backlund-Frolik
Versteeg-Jankowksi-Lazar

THAT'S HOW YOU WIN A CUP BOYS & GIRLS

I could see it. And if it is, that will likely end the chances of signing a vet like Jagr, Iginla etc as Bennett's AAV will be higher than what we expect now.
