Hornqvist Traded to Panthers for Matheson

Postby Pensfan4life8771 on Wed Sep 23, 2020 11:26 am

So does this mean a D is out next?

It has to, right? What the hell else could they do?

By the way, first reaction is hating this.

This also leads me to believe that the D man we are moving is bringing back a forward of some sort.

Paying Matheson 4.875M to play on the bottom pair is about as bad as paying Johnson 3.25M to play there.

I'd be concerned if I were Marcus Pettersson.

This can't be 1 for 1.

If it is I'm calling for JR's head.

If JJ goes with him, I can live with it.

I cannot. I am not exaggerating when I say Matheson was Johnson-level bad. So, getting rid of 3 more years of JJ @# 3.25M, for SIX MORE YEARS of Matheson @ 4.875M is not a win in my book at all.

GMJR was handcuffed where he could trade Horny. What kind, if any, trade protection does Matheson have?
Side note- Love Ya 72. Thanks for the memories and good luck.

Nothing official yet. Lebrun says it hasn't gone through.

Matheson has a Modified NTC starting next year. He can submit 8 team list he wouldn't accept a trade.
Matheson also gets 2.5M of his salary in signing bonus form the last 3 years of his deal.
Matheson's contract is also back-loaded....4.875M AAV, but he gets 6.5M in actual salary plus bonus the last 3 years of his deal.

Where's the barf emoji?

So I suppose there's a slight chance it would be easier to dump Matheson's cap hit?

Friedman also saying there was a "glitch" and trade hasn't gone through.

I hope that glitch was David Morehouse in a full-ass sprint giving GMJR a Terry Crew Office Linebacker tackle saying "WTF are you doing, Jim????"

@PierreVLeBrun

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.

I usually give JR the benefit of the doubt on trades, but how in the heck does this help the team, loaded on LD, long contract, salary back loaded with bonuses, no real cap relief? Help me out here.....

I just can't wrap my head around the point of this swap. Especially for another LD. I just don't understand.

If the trade goes through there is something else brewing in the background. Has to be.

Or this could be a turn and burn deal., sending Matheson somewhere else in another deal (whistling past the graveyard).

The Penguins will have six left-handed def. That does merit a "WTF." &the Pens don't gain much cap. Matheson is def better than Johnson.
