    Wow. Fiala is a solid top 6 forward. Should be good for 25+ goals minimum every year of that contract. Gotta like that for the Kings.

    Minnesota must really like Brock Faber.

    • Jon Sorensen says:

      Caught me as well. Apparently the Wild say they would had to let three players go to re-sign him. Simply not enough $$.

      • Lance says:

        Hey Jon (and anyone else), who would you have traded for Fiala from the Caps? I would’ve traded our 1st round this year (20th overall) plus Iorio or Alexeev maybe. Or maybe something involving Mantha. Fiala signed for 7 years might be better than Mantha signed for 2 years given the age differences. Lots of cap implications, of course.

        • Harrison Brown says:

          I would’ve done 1st+Alexeyev/Iorio

        • DWGie26 says:

          Yeah… i would do that. Would seem Kings got the better of this deal on paper. I think it probably would have cost us 1st round and a forward prospect (leason, Protas, AJF, or Snively). I would do any of those combination for Fiala. or either of the Dee you mentioned or LuJo for that matter.

        • Jon Sorensen says:

          I like that trade proposal. Hopefully you have GMBM’s direct line. 😁

          The question is where do the Caps find cap space for another big salary, unless Backstrom is truly done and all of the young D drafted in the past decade become solid NHL players.

          After next year the Caps have $29.4M in projected space, but only 10 players under contract. That means they have ~$2.25M per player to fill out a full 23-man roster. Add Fiala’s $7.9M and the remaining 12 players would have to average $1.8M. That’s not enough to bring in enough talent to win.

          The entire Caps D corps except Carlson is in FA. Fehervary is an RFA but he’s gonna get paid a LOT more than his current $800K. Orlov and Jensen are going to get raises from somebody. And the Caps would still need to sign a veteran D or 2… or 3… or 4… Even if they re-signed Orlov and Jensen they’d still be short several D unless the kids really step up or they find some cheap vets like TVR.

          Even with Eller off the books after this year, they will still be strapped for cap space unless they can lose some big salaries… like Backstrom’s and/or Kuznetsov and/or Mantha and/or Wilson. But then how do they replace that production with anything cheaper.

          Sorry guys, as nice as it would be to have another high-priced forward this upcoming year, there’s no way to fit such a player under the cap beyond 22-23 without blowing up the rest of the Caps roster.

          Which might be a good idea, but that’s a separate comment…

            This is because like other teams the caps have kept their core together letting them get older and more expensive while getting low draft picks and only able to sign players at league min or a little over. They need to learn to trade some of their talend as they gets older for younger talent or picks to keep the pipeline supplied and not have to worry so much about the cap. Better to retool along the way then make the slow slide into ebuild. Need to choose in keeping Carlson or letting Orlov go in trade or worse after next season as a UFA and receive nothing. Have to make a decision on a very bad trade acquisition in Mantha and also on what to do an aging Eller. They trade their best goalie and keep a head case who costs more and you will have to pay him at least $2 mil a year for next season. Ted and the GM showed that they are willing to spend money on talent but not on talent on the bench as they let Trotz go and Lambert with him. This team had at least 1 manye 2 more Cup runs and possible wins in them with Trots. And to replace a HOF coach with Reardon was a laugh. Now on the verge of a rebuild they have a coach who does not like young players and an owner that does not realize that it would be better to rebuild sooner than later. I have been a Caps fan since the 70’s and can say this without a shadow of a doube…..when this team does its rebuild Ted is going to see many empty seats nightly in the stadium because people are not going to pay to see loosing teams. Its nice to be loyal to players but you forget about what a head coach can do and frankly losing in the first round all the time isnt worth it and might as well not make the playoffs to get a better draft pick.
