This has no impact on cap space unless you for some reason think they were going to go with only 6 d-men before or are going to go with 8 d-men now. Signing Stone ($700k) means that Davidson ($700k) or Yelesin ($925k) will be in the AHL to start the year instead of the NHL

Hopefully the first of three signings to be announced today.

Please leave/stay. I mean, please go away/come here. What I’m trying to say is why are you still here/where are you?

Sign MacDonald after an impressive (hopefully) training camp.

I like this move. Stone is a serviceable NHL d-man and who better to know about him than the team that bought him out a few months back.

BT is far too conservative with his defencemen to anoint Andersson a lock for the first pairing and assume Stone can play in the third pairing after essentially not even making the lineup last year before the clot. He cares too much about defensive depth, and has held his ground on all other RFAs so far, I can't imagine him removing a top pairing defenceman and replacing him in the lineup with Stone just because of Tkachuk's demands.

If Brodie does get moved, I still see another defencemen being added.

“Tkachuk’s demands.”

Moving out a $4M contract has no impact on cap space?

You think Brodie would be traded for nothing?

Well most players would not re-sign for the league minimum, so this strategy would not really work. Plus I am sure they got the NHL's blessing before doing the deal.

Stone's agent is Tkachuk's uncle/agent Craig Oster: https://puckpedia.com/player/michael-stone

Personally this move angers me. The next signings should have been Tkachuk or Mangiapane. Camp starts tomorrow as well so I would rather wait to see how guys like Davidson or maybe some other guys in the system do during camp before adding Stone.

I didn't like re-signing of Stone when we acquired Hamonic and I hate it even more today. They always talk about the game getting faster and Stone is below average in that department.

Terrible news IMO.

Meh. Surely a pro like Stone would know that the team was going in a different direction, then the Valimaki injury happened and that changed a lot of things.

I doubt he feels awkward, and he's still getting his dough so he's probably happy he doesn't have to hang by the phone for a PTO and move cities again. Didn't he have a kid recently?

You can't pay a 7th any less and the full amount can be buried in the AHL. There's no downside here.
