Cap recapture is the total amount of $ earned above your cap hit divided by the number of years left on your deal. The problem with a trade is that the cap recapture number freezes the second you trade them but the years continue to tick down.Vegoe wrote: ↑Wed Jul 31 2:45 pmBasically what I gather is if they don't play through age 40, 2024-25 and retire early, the Wild get hit with a cap recapture penalty of $6.5M per year, per player for the last two years of their 'deal.' This is because they are due to have a base salary of $1M and a cap hit of $7.5M those two years. If they retired with three years left on their deals they would have a base salary of $2M and a cap hit of $7.5, so that year the recapture is only $5.5M for that third to last season.team22tank wrote: ↑Wed Jul 31 1:25 pmNo. Not for simply being traded.ScoobyDoo wrote: ↑Wed Jul 31 1:08 pmIsn't there like a penalty attached to both of them because of their contracts that would cost the Wild? I don't think it's worth it to be honest.Vegoe wrote: ↑Wed Jul 31 11:07 amJust curious... what do people think would come in a return for Parise or Suter? And how would fans react?
Dumping David Clarkson who could be put on LTI cost a 1st and 2nd.
Dumping Bryan Bickell cost a prospect (Teravainen), 2nd & 3rd.
Dumping Dave Bolland cost a 2nd and 3rd.
The problems arise if they retire. Whether they are in MN or retire on another team after being traded.
I think it's even worse with a buyout:https://www.capfriendly.com/buyout-calc ... se#results
There is no recapture penalty on a buyout.
