To be fair, Chiasson had a pretty decent year with Edmonton.

Typo's because you're throwing shade in every thread you can as quick as you can. It's all good, you're a hilarious poster in my eyes, but this is what it is.

I am not worried about this helping Edmonton enough to make a difference. Neal is not the difference, even at 25 goals, between them being a playoff team and not being a playoff team. The fact that all of the Oilers fan boys have jumped on the Neal bandwagon after what I saw last year confirms for me that BT is going to end up winning this deal in the end... this is Tobias Reider Part II.
Imo if the Oilers buyout neal other than maybe his last year of his contract it's a terrible idea. They bought out pouliot sekera retain in lucic and buy out neal? At some point it isn't an option anymore.

If they buy him out next summer they are wasting the following cap space

20/21 - $6.5mil
21/22 - $4.2 mil
22/23 - $4.2 mil
3 more years at $1.9 mil

3 years of 4 plus wasted space. Also have a ton of free agents next summer and nurse looking for a raise.

Then nuge the next summer.

If they make any mistakes after buying out neal they are screwed . Imo the retained salary blocked the buyout as an option

Now lucic is only owed $16 more mil over 4 years. Oilers paying 3 of it. Flames could pay his bonus next summer and try and deal him if thing dont work out. 3 mil bonus plus 3 from oil leaves 10 mil for 3 years for a team. Might be movable

Yup. Not a single one that I would want back given who we have on our roster/staff...

Visited the booth. Quite popular and selling quite a bit of other art pieces.

They didn't confirm specific colors but they are going to be doing additional variants after Comic-Con. I casually suggested a blue and white bin with an orange flame.

I don't love the trade but Oilers fans everywhere are bragging about their "big win" of paying James Neal 6.35M per season

Anything besides a total fail is a win in Edmonton.

They better not brag about their math.

6.5M per season.

Aw, heck, that’s only the cap hit of the annual payments to him and Lucic.

Let’s call it an average of 7.25, throwing in and spreading out the other 3 million they paid Lucic 2 days before the trade.

The only 3 adds I see from the flames this summer are Lucic, Talbot, and Davidson all ex Oilers. What is going on here?

Well, cap hit is the most important publicly facing number relevant to a players contract from a fan perspective of a team in a cap system run by a billionaire.

Oh, for sure.

No harm, though, in letting them know the team actually spent another 3 million for the opportunity to take Neal on (no coincidence the trade happened hot on the heels of that payment).

Another marvellous business decision.
