PULLED INTO NAZARETH

There are signs everywhere. The leaves are starting to turn, I put the heat on in the car the other day, the cushions on the deck chairs sometimes don’t make it outside for an entire day. We bought hot chocolate at the store the other day, and we’ll hit the farmer’s market soon to buy veggies for our Saturday minestrone evenings (basically an excuse to drink wine and get silly). Fall isn’t here but you know it is on the way. This time, we can look forward to the hockey that fall and winter brings, and the promise of a brand new day.

PROJECTED ROOKIE CAMP ROSTER (AN ESTIMATE)

  1. G Nick Ellis, 23. He enters camp as the AHL starter and first recall option. Ellis posted a strong year in Bakersfield and is easily the best goalie option available for this camp.
  2. G Shane Starrett, 23Strong college resume and this is his first year pro. With Eddie Pasquale as the second AHL option, Starrett may jump between Bakersfield and Wichita in 2017-18.
  3. G Dylan Wells, 19He has a good chance to make the WJ team and it’s important for him to repeat last season’s strong showing. The club drafted him on the downbeat, he’s paid them back in a big way since.
  4. G Stuart Skinner, 18He is somewhat similar to Wells in that he has been well known for awhile and had a bit of a down season during draft year. Corey Pronman: He’s a big goalie with a developed frame who moves fine for a goalie his size. When he’s playing aggressively, he can make the net disappear.
  5. LD Caleb Jones. Turns pro this fall, I can’t wait to see him use that speed in Bakersfield. Coverage will be the big item, he enters rookie camp as one of the most promising players on the roster.
  6. RD Ethan Bear. He should get plenty of playing time at rookie camp and in the McEwan-Nait game, Bear is one of the feature prospects for Edmonton this fall. He’ll be ticketed for Bakersfield and should be one of the early pro exits from camp.
  7. LD Ziyat Paigin. He played for Ak Bars Kazan (KHL) 17gp, 1-3-4 and Bakersfield (AHL) 5gp, 0-0-0 last season. He has 95 KHL and 5 AHL games, so is barely eligible (and it’s not 100 percent he’ll be in Penticton).
  8. RD Ryan ManthaDuplicates Bear’s skill set and he is a year older. He should get feature minutes in rookie camp, likely sent down with the first group of Condors.
  9. LD Dmitri Samorukov. His numbers with Guelph of the OHL (67gp, 4-16-20) suggest a defensive defender but the scouting reports are a little more glowing. Corey Pronman says he’s mobile and smart, he improved as the season rolled along and flourished at the U18’s.
  10. RD Sahvan Kaira. Swift Current defender (70gp, 1-16-17) he hasn’t been confirmed but Edmonton will need him to round out the defensive group with righties. He was very physical down the stretch last season, has a better chance of getting a pro contract than 12 months ago.
  11. LD Liam Schioler. He’s a big defender, most of his value will come without the puck. He’s a training camp invite and should see some time in Penticton. Jeffrey gave me the head’s up, and I thank him. Sounds like the Pats feel this young man can take a step forward.
  12. LC Joe Gambardella, 23. He will be a star in the coming tournament, more mature and aggressive, he’ll deliver offense from turnovers and should play feature minutes. I think he could get some NHL time this year.
  13. LC Brandon Saigeon. Hamilton (OHL) 66gp, 21-28-49. He is a 1998 born and I’d rate him as the most talented invite based on the boxcars and possible role.
  14. LC Kevin Klima. Chicoutimi (QMJHL) 32gp, 4-10-14; Moncton (QMJHL) 29gp, 4-18-22. Small skill center has some two-way ability according to reports.
  15. RC Steve Owre. Medicine Hat (WHL) 71gp, 26-62-88. WHL skill center is now finished in junior and at 21 this is a nice opportunity (camp invite not yet confirmed for any of these young unaffiliated centers).
  16. RC Ethan Szypula. Owen Sound (OHL) 64gp, 11-36-47. He plays a more rugged style than his size (5.11, 170) implies.
  17. L Tyler Benson. Vancouver (WHL) 33gp, 11-31-42. It sounds uncertain he’ll pay, which is both par for the course and very discouraging.
  18. L Kirill Maksimov. Niagara (OHL) 66gp, 21-17-38. The way he ended last season may suggest Edmonton stole a player in the depths of the draft. He should be one of the most skilled forwards in Edmonton’s camp.
  19. L Evan Polei. Red Deer (WHL) 69gp, 33-29-62; Bakersfield (AHL) 1gp, 0-0-0. AHL contract, he has real skill and should be very useful at this camp.
  20. R Kailer Yamamoto. He’ll be the star of the show and we’ll see plenty of offense from him in Penticton. Yamamoto is high skill, amazing talent.
  21. R Chad Butcher. Medicine Hat (WHL) 68gp, 27-76-103. AHL contract, he has enough skill and experience to be extremely useful during rookie camp.
  22. R Dave Gust. Ohio State (NCAA). 39gp, 18-23-41. AHL contract, he has more experience than most of these kids and will likely play a prominent role.
  23. R Kelly Klima. Chicoutimi (QMJHL) 35gp, 8-9-17; Moncton (QMJHL) 31gp, 14-18-32. He’ll be in tough at RW but watching Petr’s kids is going to be a fan attraction.
  24. R Trey Fix Wolansky. A recent confirmed invite (via DVD) and he is another small player with top skills.

Not everyone is confirmed (Schioler and Wolansky in the last 24 hours) but that’s a reasonable guess. It’s possible Jesse Puljujarvi, Drake Caggiula and Matt Benning appear but that might be overkill. The Finn would cut through Penticton like a giant, might be fun to watch.

PENTICTON TO THE NHL?

You may be wondering if players routinely make the NHL in the same season they appear in Penticton. Last year (here) all of Jesse Puljujarvi, Matt Benning and Drake Caggiula turned the trick. So, while we may be concentrating on high draft pick Kailer Yamamoto, perhaps college men like Joe Gambardella and Nick Ellis should be considered as possible successes.

PAT QUINN’S OPENING NIGHT LINEUP, 2009

  • L1: Jacques-Horcoff-Hemsky
  • L2: Penner-Cogliano-Brule
  • L3: O’Sullivan-Comrie-Stone
  • L4: Moreau-Gagner-Stortini
  • D1: Grebeshkov-Gilbert
  • D2: Souray-Staios
  • D3: Visnovsky-Smid
  • G1: Khabibulin, Deslauriers

Those lines! Pat Quinn had some great years in Philly, Vancouver and Toronto but he and the Oilers were not a good match. Rugged bugger on every line, though, something the current management would agree with in my opinion. Quinn didn’t have the horses, that’s a fact. I see Montreal trying Jonathan Drouin at center (or that’s the plan) this training camp, those kinds of moves were routine during the dark days. Remember Taylor Hall at center? Yeah.

50-MAN LIST

Nothing has changed in three weeks, so this is us. If you are a fan of prospects, Peter Chiarelli’s activity this summer has to please you. There is much clean air for Jesse Puljujarvi, Anton Slepyshev and Drake Caggiula up front, and a player like Ty Rattie is in an excellent spot as well. On the defensive side, men like Yohann Auvitu, Keegan Lowe and Dillon Simpson appear to have an excellent shot at playing time. Maybe Mark Fayne rises like a Phoenix as well.

At the AHL level, I think there might be a need at center but Josh Currie signed an AHL deal with Bakersfield and that will impact the depth chart. I wrote about the 2017-18 Condors here, the team seems fairly set. Certainly more depth than a year ago, where the Bakersfield side must have felt robbed when Matt Benning and Drake Caggiula made the big club and stayed.

    Nothing shocking here but I’m most interested in seeing how the new pro D (Bear, Jones, Mantha, Paigin), Yamamoto and the goalies.

    I would be highly interested in Benson’s performance but i doubt he’ll play – I thought I read the other day that he wasn’t even a lock to be on the ice for WHL camp? So disappointing – the organization needs Benson to turn back in to a real prospect.

    I expect Yamamoto to be one of the higher end scorers out there – I won’t say dominate because of his age but he should star.

    I don’t think the CBA prevents that for a calendar year, they prevent things like matching offer sheets and trading, claiming off waivers and trading…any CBA experts?

    In regards to circumventing, if you’re paying a price it’s not much different than Arizona taking datsyuks contract

    Joey Votto: got walked unintentionally five times in a row, on 43 pitches total. This blog does an excellent job breaking it down. I’ve never seen a pro baseball player choke up on a bat that much, but then they show how he can hit pitches all over the place because of the better control, and it makes sense!

    Bag of Pucks: Have you been to a minor hockey game lately?

    My kids have played various sports, parents go over the top in many of them. Minor hockey seems to have the largest percentage of parents who think their kid’s going somewhere at the tender age of 7, though. But as the kids get older, especially 14+, the parents in most sports have learned their place (cheer, support, don’t be an embarassment or your child will not make it anywhere).

    That essentially nets out to paying $12 million dollars for a 2nd round pick for the other team. No sane GM would pay $12 million dollars for a 2nd round pick.

    Good point, but I’m not so sure about it. Chayka spent $7.5m for a 4 spot bump in the 1st round and a second rounder in the Datsyuk trade. Not outside the realm of possibility for a cap floor team to do this.

  26. jtblack says:

    Maybe retaining 25% is more realistic. Creative thinking.

    Cap dollars are not necessarily real dollars. Arizona isn’t paying Datsyuk a penny. In that case, the dollars are not real dollars. It is just trading cap room.

    In that Nugent-Hopkins proposal, the other team would be paying out $12 million REAL dollars over four years for a 2nd round draft pick, which would be just plain ludicrous.

    Yes, but ARI didn’t then trade Datsyuk back to DET with the salary hit remaining against ARI, which i believe was the original proposal viz. RNH.

    Basically it would be using one team’s inept/flawed management of not spending to the cap and icing a competitive team to bail out anaother team’s inept/flawed management that signed a player to a boat anchor contract.

    Can’t see how the league would like their own loopholes and stupidity highlighted for all to see.

    You are definitely correct. I was trying to think of any other clear salary dumps that involved real money and picks and the only one I could come up with was Marc Savard being moved around. The most recent one, last summer, he was traded along with a second round pick for two players that were clearly just throw-ins, nothing substantial.

    His cap hit was ~$4m but actual salary was $575,000. So there we have it, the value of a 2nd round pick is $575,000, so at equal value we could get 2.5% retained on RNH’s salary for the remainder of the contract.

    jtblack& kgo, I do like the creative thinking though.

  32. Pink Socks says:

    Yep the Datsyuk example was not a good one, the Savard one I just posted above is closer to real value of $$$ for a 2nd rounder.

  33. Jethro Tull says:

    Pink Socks,

    None of these players are NHL active, though. Horton, Savard, Datsyuk, CFP.

    RNH is still a warm body. Then you have to think that the player might have a labour grievance. Traded from the Oil, then traded back again because they don’t like paying you.

  34. Jethro Tull says:

    Pink Socks: Yep the Datsyuk example was not a good one, the Savard one I just posted above is closer to real value of $$$ for a 2nd rounder.

    But Savard is not an active player.

  35. godot10 says:

    Pink Socks: Yep the Datsyuk example was not a good one, the Savard one I just posted above is closer to real value of $$$ for a 2nd rounder.

    The insurance company is probably paying Savard’s salary, so that is probably not a good comparison either. Savard probably became “tradeable” because his actural salary was now so low that it would not affect the acquiring teams insurance premiums going forward.

  36. Pink Socks says:

    Jethro Tull: But Savard is not an active player.

    I know, however that trade establishes the cash value of a second round pick, which was the intention from the beginning.

    Not all of it, 60% per Friedman. So we’re down to $230,000 as an established value for a 2nd rounder.

    League signs off on all deals. Even if there is no rule against it, they wouldn’t allow it. Unless Lou were running the oil.

  43. OriginalPouzar says:

    I think that rule is specific to offer sheets and trading the player back to the original team.

    I don’t think there is a specific rule with respect to the question at hand (although I haven’t reviewed the CBA on the point yet), however, I believe the league has discretion to reject contracts and deals that have the intent of circumventing the cap/CBA.

    Yes, this is the best interests of the sport rule. It has been used mainly in baseball, but basically the commissioner is given the discretion to make a decision in the best interests of the sport. SO you trade RNH for a 7th and then plan on getting him back with 50% retained, and then Gary Bettman says nope that’s not allowed. Now you have just traded RNH for a 7th.

  45. Lowetide says:

    In the 1970s Charlie Finlay of the Oakland A’s started selling players and Bowie Kuhn stepped in. Crazy alteration of league power, it was (believe it or not) the right thing to do.

  46. kgo says:

    TO10801,

    Obviously you’d get League approval first before consummating either trade. So maybe it costs a first-round pick to swallow $12 over 4 years

  47. kgo says:

    Can anyone find evidence of a player moving to and from a team within 12 months for any reason. I don’t think it would be viewed as circumvention as long as two teams are involved and consummating a trade

  48. Doug McLachlan says:

    At the core of this Nuge discussion is how to keep him under the cap.

    One option is to shed salary to get under the cap, the other option is to grow revenue and thus raise the cap.

    TSN’s Rick Westhead has sourced the $ for MLSE’s arena naming rights deal – and it’s massive.
    http://www.tsn.ca/talent/mlse-agrees-to-record-arena-rights-deal-with-scotiabank-1.842133

    $800M over the next 20 years. A record not only for the NHL but North American sport. ScotiaBank is betting on the Leafs and Matthews. The trickle down effect on league-wide Hockey Related Revenue is not insignificant.

    $40M per year Canadian so at a 79 cent dollar that’s $31M US. The CBA is a little confusing here as naming rights appear to calculated at the full amount while sponsorship deals are dealt with as a % split (and the “team” portion split between the Leafs and Raptors).

    Still, that’s more HRR to add to the pot – apparently the previous sum for the ACC was $4M per year so a 10 fold increase is real $.

    Illustration: If Club A Trades the SPC of a Player to Club B (the “Initial Trade”), Club B cannot subsequently Trade an SPC of such Player back to Club A within one (1) calendar year from the date of the Initial Trade and retain a portion of the Averaged Amount of that SPC pursuant to a Retained Salary Transaction. However, Club B may Trade an SPC of the Player back to Club A within one (1) calendar year from the date of the Initial Trade if Club B does not retain any portion of such Player’s SPC.

    SPC means contract and Reserve List is all the players a team has rights to (including players under contract and unsigned draft picks).

    TL;DR for your question of “immediately” getting the player back with salary retained, no, teams can’t do that. They need to wait a year.”
