Jared McCann was the comparable!

I like the short term deal.

Always better for both parties to avoid arbitration if need be. The business of it can get nasty at times which can sometimes lead to bad feelings.

The Flames now have about $3.29M with Gawdin and the 10 forwards listed by CapFriendly. They need to re-sign Kylington and add a forward. That forward could be a prospect or an acquisition. I'd also like to see them acquire a quality RHD for the 3rd pairing.

Personally, I think if Kylington wants to play for the Flames, he will sign for league minimum ($700K) like Gawdin.

So, that would leave the Flames with about $2.59M for the final forward and another RHD. If the Flames are smart, they could potentially get some pretty good pieces with what people have been signing for.

I would have liked to have seen the longer-term deal (although long-term would make it complicated cap wise), but as is this is a solid contract with fair value on both sides.

Would have rather signed him for more term, but this contract makes sense for both sides. Good to avoid arbitration too. Tre getting the house in order.

Sweet!

I figured $3 million AAV tops on a short term like this.

Two year deal is perfect, still an RFA at the end. If he proves he's actually a top 6 forward, he gets a big top 6 forward deal.

Great job.

Minimum contracts for everyone! I guess if they expect Mackey to compete around 950k is earmarked for that. Kylington probably around 800k. We really run out of space for anyone not on league minimum, without moving someone out.

Good deal. Hopefully Mangi keeps progressing so he can earn a bigger payday for next contract.

Good contract. Is he still an RFA at the end? If so that's a bonus.

Really like the player, he just keeps getting better. Great drafting and developing too but his attitude certainly helps.

Good deal. Much better than the $4M+ AAV Rasmus Andersson-style deal that some wanted him signed to.

Kent Wilson for one. Ugh that would have been a terrible deal.

This means the Flames are pretty much at the cap.

If you sign Kylington for $800k and fill the roster with young NHL minimum contracts (Gawdin, Phillips, Mackey), we have $127k in cap space.

FORWARDS (13)
Right wing: Elias Lindholm ($4,850,000) - Dillon Dubé ($778,333) - Glenn Gawdin ($700,000) - Matthew Phillips ($733,333)
Centre: Sean Monahan ($6,375,000) - Mikael Backlund ($5,350,000) - Derek Ryan ($3,125,000) - Sam Bennett ($2,550,000)
Left wing: Matthew Tkachuk ($7,000,000) - Johnny Gaudreau ($6,750,000) - Milan Lucic ($5,250,000) - Andrew Mangiapane ($2,425,000) - Buddy Robinson ($700,000)

DEFENSE (7)
Right: Rasmus Andersson ($4,550,000) - Christopher Tanev ($4,500,000) - Oliver Kylington ($800,000)
Left: Mark Giordano ($6,750,000) - Noah Hanifin ($4,950,000) - Juuso Välimäki ($894,166) - Connor Mackey ($925,000)

GOALTENDER (2)
Jacob Markström ($6,000,000) - David Rittich ($2,750,000)

BUYOUTS (2)
Troy Brouwer ($1,500,000) - Michael Stone ($1,166,667) (Man this $2.6M would be nice to be able to improve our bottom 6 forwards)

DETAILS
Roster Size: 22
Salary Cap: $81,500,000
Cap Hit: $81,372,499
Cap Space: $127,501

Feels like there is going to be a 2-1 type of deal coming here...
