    Exactly, people seem to think he's going to the Kings...all indications are he is not and will be the Ontario backup. Rosen stated as much via twitter as well.

    so Blake gets a 35 yr old backup goalie for a 4th line checker AND adds a half mil in payroll?

    What is a Buried Contract?
    Teams do not receive full cap relief when a player on a one-way NHL contract is reassigned to the American Hockey League, or is loaned to a team in another professional league.
    The players salary cap hit, minus the sum of the minimum NHL salary for the respective season and $375,000, still counts towards the team’s salary cap total.
    The cap hit relief is therefore equal to the minimum salary of the respective season + $375,000:
    2014-15: $550,000 + $375,000 = $925,000
    2015-16: $575,000 + $375,000 = $950,000
    2016-17: $575,000 + $375,000 = $950,000
    2017-18: $650,000 + $375,000 = $1,025,000
    2018-19: $650,000 + $375,000 = $1,025,000
    2019-20: $700,000 + $375,000 = $1,075,000
    2020-21: $700,000 + $375,000 = $1,075,000
    2021-22: $750,000 + $375,000 = $1,125,000
    He will count but just a tad

    What did this mean?

    His annual salary is particularly interesting. It is the exact salary cap hit that the Lightning can bury in the minor league by re-assigning him to the Syracuse Crunch. While it is unlikely that this will happen, it's a option in the event that the Lightning struggle to stay under the cap.

    The wrong gritty 4th line Left Winger got traded. I know this is an unpopular opinion, but as far as I'm concerned, Andreoff surpassed Clifford a long time ago and they just refused to let it happen.

    Better skater, better hands, better vision, better (or shall we say, less broken) fighter, shall I keep going? Looked great on a line with Amadio and Brodzinski, a line that carried the team on one of their early spring road trips, right up until Clifford got healthy and that line was never put back together again. Stupid.

    Having said that, it's not a bad trade in itself. I just would've moved Clifford a while ago for a better return.

    ^^ Let's hope Clifford gets shipped out next. The bottom six is junk for the most part.

    The biggest issue in the Clifford vs Andreoff thing is salary.Clifford is paid almost 1m per season more...

    I think he'll stick in a checking role in Tampa Bay.

    To my eye, both Tampa and Vegas, with their finesse and up-tempo styles, were out-muscled and out-hit by a more physical squad and it adversely affected their play. Both of these teams spent an uncharacteristic amount of time in their defensive zone in the round where they were eliminated. Their quick-strike capability was pretty well neutralized as a result.

    According to Rosen, Andreoff wasn't being projected to make the Kings out of training camp this fall. Could be that Blake was doing a favor for a well-regarded "good soldier" with the trade, and giving him a better shot with a good team that needs more of a physical presence.

    This past season, during those infrequent periods where he was able to get on the ice, I thought he acquitted himself pretty well.

    Except the Kings office LOVE them some Clifford -- culture changer, leads by example, etc.
    At least Yanetti and Futa do for sure. DL loved him, and refused to trade him when a team wanted him at that salary. (EDM I think?)

    Now, does Blake feel the same way??
