That's why they made this trade. I can't recall seeing a contract where the bonuses only start last 3 years.

For whatever reason, I'm told this trade hasn't gone through yet. Not sure if it has to do with the fact Hornqvist has a full no-trade clause or not.

Johnson will be gone. Bought out, traded attached to Murray or whatever.

I do. I know Matheson would be a Top 4 in Detroit. He's not a bad player. We needed something done to our D core. Shake things up. Horny was a $5M+ player playing 3rd line. No speed, no hands but VERY good in front of the net. Just too much $$$ spent on him.
- Barnaby36

Lol nope. He’d be behind dekeyser and nemeth. You’re bad at this.

We didn’t need anything done to our D Corp. we needed to replace an albatross on the 3rd pairing. Not add another albatross to the D Corp. That’s not a shake up. Hopefully Weekes is wrong.

Is Matheson better than Pettersson? Pettersson’s contract isn’t bad. IF this means Johnson is being moved soon, moving Pettersson to the 3rd pairing just solidifies the D corps so much more.

Of course this is only if Johnson is moved.

No. Matheson is brutal. Basically a young JJ.

I’m told there’s a “glitch” with the FLA/PIT trade. It was definitely in progress. We will see if it gets worked out.

Sorry. I meant core. And I don’t considered 3rd pairing to be the d “core.” Those players are replaceable on a year to year basis. Top 6 lines and top 4 D is what I would defines is that core of a team.

- jimbro83

Please let this be true and Hornqvist vetoes the trade. He might be overpaid for his role and about to fall off, but I'd rather keep him for net front if we're not clearing any salary and just getting another crappy, overpaid, bottom pair LH defenseman.

Seems Horny was a spare part that didn't fit anymore and there is always a commodity with defenseman

Probably better then trading Horny and having to retain $$ and pickings could have been slim with the NTC

33 year old diminishing Forward for a 26 year old defenseman

meh, the more defense we have, the less chance JJ is here or plays going forward

The glitch is the league said, wait, we have to confirm because this trade is so bad we can't believe it.

Rutherford decided he needs to include POJ and a first round pick just for the hell of it.

Horny is still useful. Matheson is not.

You're right. We might be bringing Matheson to be a Top 4 guy or just to replace Jacko in the lineup (we only hope).

Dumoulin - Letang
Matheson - Marino
Pettersson - Joseph
Riikola - Ruhwedel

Jacko (to hell)
