Good points on the pros of Kane in this thread.
The cons though, are most likely insurmountable. That being money, term and to some, lack of team play with his linemates.
Move him this deadline or off season if a deal like shea Theodore presents itself is my opinion.
Just for fun though, Anaheim is against the cap more than we are right now.
To Anaheim: (projected cap hit, 76.8 - LTIR relief, 4.98 - current cap projection, 71.82)
Kane 5.25 aav 6.00 sal (1 yr)
Nillson 1.00 aav 1.00 sal (UFA)
Girgensons 1.15 aav 1.15 sal (RFA)
Total: 8.40 aav
To Buffalo: (Projected cap hit, 71.6 - LTIR relief, 0 - current cap projection, 71.6)
Stoner 3.25 aav 3.25 sal (1 yr)
Bernier 4.15 aav 4.15 sal (UFA)
Theodore 863,333 aav 832,500 sal (ELC)
Nick Ritchie 1,627,500 aav 925,000 sal with 850,000 P bonus (RFA)
Total: 9.1 aav
I included the salaries because Anaheim has internal cap? Just something to look at.
So, Bernier had been playing bad lately and he's pricey. Give them Nillson for price reduction and appears steadier in play. Both are FA's.
They get Kane and Girgensons for the playoff run and scoring increase they need as well as both can be around next season for it as well.
We get Theodore for an LHD we need and we get Ritchie who has had a tad bit worse struggles than Girgs as the price for swinging the deal. But both are young and appear to need a change of scenery.May have to add something minor pick wise to equalize, not sure though.
Stoner is the cap relief they'd like and he's gone before jack and Sam's new contracts kick in.
My first time trying this, be kind in your flaming
