Jets Acquire Tlusty, Pens Land Winnik

On Wednesday afternoon, the Winnipeg Jets acquired forward Jiri Tlusty from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a third round draft choice in the 2016 NHL Draft and a conditional sixth round draft choice in the 2015 NHL Draft. The trade happens on the heels of Winnipeg placing forward Blake Wheeler on IR.

Also on Wednesday, the Pittsburgh Penguins acquired forward Daniel Winnik from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for center Zach Sill, a fourth round draft pick in 2015 and a second round draft pick in 2016. According to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, Toronto will eat half of Winnik’s cap hit as part of the deal.

  1. My understanding is that the hawks can use the money Kane costs as long as he plays no more regular season games right? If this is true and we can add a player and possibly get 88 back for the playoffs then Stan should pull the trigger right? Or am iwrong?

  2. Kessel has 6 years left on his contract at 8 million a year. He’s not an option unless they unload Sharp and Crow (or some other salary dump scenario).

  3. Could a used Winnik…….especially with the Leafs eating half.
    Kessel’s not an option

    SB can use Kane’s Cap space since he is on the LTIR……meaning at least 24 days AND 10 games, if I am remembering correctly. That’s about $78K per game AAV or $780K for 10 games. Please correct if wrong.

    I think SB is gonna have to live with the forwards we have. Hawks need help on defense. I hope SB does not lose sight of that.

    Q must be hoping Oduya is back soon. He was a healthy scratch last night…..Q/SB have not put him on the LTIR. Oduya’s AAV is $41k per game or $441k for the 10 game LTIR minimum. However, I believe the club can pick up that space by putting Oduya on the LTIR retroactive to the day he got hurt…..again if that is off base please correct

  4. I thought kessel was 6 mil, and thought it would cost us sharp in off season, a sacrifice id be willing to make
