KH strikes again….enjoy that cap hit in years 6 and 7 when he’s a replacement level player and KH is long gone from the organization.

But look at these moves….

Got aging vets Duncan Keith and Mike Smith, bought out Neal, then pulls a Maple Leafs and manages to sign Ceci and Barrie, but gets rid of 29 year olds Bear and Larsson.

I hope McDavid pulls an Eichel.
