Meh, I don't really disagree with you, but I'd like them to sign Ebs if he's not going to be unreasonable. The fact that their not even talking suggests he's looking for a big payday. If that's the case then I fully agree they should dump him.

What do you feel is unreasonable? 7 per?

Well he's already making $6M and is going to turn 29 at the end of the season. I'm not paying him $7M+ to play here until his mid-30's. I like Eberle a lot, but if he's not creating offense he isn't really doing much else. I have a very, very strong feeling that when his games goes...it's going to fall off a cliff. He's not a vet that can make the transition to bottom-six role player.

So would I. Oil get cap space, term, high end prospect and a pass first RW to feed McDavid and Draisaitl.

I also like Eberle and never expected to like him but it's risky locking him up long term and especially with Wahlstrom and Bellows and maybe others.

You wouldn't really see too much savings on the cap until Nuge would have been due a raise for the 2021-22 season. Bailey's AAV is $5M compared to Nuge at $6M. But I hear you.

Yeah there figures to be enough goal-scorers on the way behind him to justify trading him for futures assets.

Definitely nothing over 7 per. It would depend on the length. If I was in Ebs position I'd be looking for a 7 year contract if I could get it. He may have to drop the price to get something that long.

Not huge savings as you said, but Oil are gonna be pinching pennies for the foreseeable future.

Plus paying Bailey 5 AAV to notch 70+ assists would be hilarious.

In a Cap world you cannot keep everyone. It's nice the Isles might have tough decisions and some good options.

Perhaps. Someone would probably pay him 7 though.

Is Strome carving out a niche with the Oil? I'd take him back as cap relief. Probably not a popular opinion, but I think he'd be a fine 3rd line soldier.

Would not shock me seeing Barry turning Strome into a useful 3rd liner.

He’s been remarkably unremarkable. He generally keeps the other team off the score sheet pivoting the 3rd line, but nor does he score. Pretty much just makes sure poop doesn’t hit the fan till McDavid/Draisaitl can get back on the ice.
