New Rule Proposal
« on: January 19, 2017, 09:34:20 PM »
I recently asked Talon if there were a rule in place for a team to kick in money towards the salary of a player that they trade away (which would help facilitate some deals).  He said that it is not allowed currently, so I want to propose it here.

To make it clearer, here is an example of how a trade would look:

Quote
TEAM A trades PLAYER (3 years, $5MM contract) to TEAM B for draft picks
TEAM A agrees to pay $2MM of PLAYER's salary for the rest of this season

What does everyone think?

Just to add in here from the outside. 

I have been asked by several teams about this before, and have said that I would be open to it, but wasn't going to push it, so if a majority of you guys want the rule are are willing to do your own math to make it all work, I won't have a problem with it.

Especially if the money being paid is only done in the current season and not something I have to keep up with on a season-to-season basis.

If Talon can do this easy without adding more to his plate, I SAY YES.

I would propose that the money be kept to either the remainder of the current season, OR the life of the contract (giving us the option of one or the other, obviously).  It would be too convoluted if people were trying to do (for example) 3 years on a 5 year deal, or something of that nature.

I think it's something that can be do-able, but should not exceed past the current season when making such a deal.

For example:

Quote
TEAM A trades PLAYER (3 years, $5MM contract) to TEAM B for draft picks
TEAM A agrees to pay $2MM of PLAYER's salary for the next 2/3/4/5/etc. seasons.

Unless the team wants to pay that difference in one lump sum. So for $2MM per season over three seasons, they pay one lump sum of $6MM in salary.

Ahh, I see what you mean.  I do like the idea of a lump sum deal.  That could definitely work, and make it much more manageable for everyone.

This would be the only way I'd allow it actually, as your jobs aren't guaranteed and I dont need teams looking for a GM to take over a team that is paying 5MM each year for the next 3 years on a deal they didnt make.

I'd be good on this rule.

I'll say yes if only for the current season. If you trade for a player on a large deal with multiple years, then you should be prepared to pay that contract for the multiple years. If you want a player who is 8, 9, 10+ mil a season, you should be prepared to pay them that contract. I'm not in favor of the lump sum option.

This is my opinion, too.

I think paying a portion for the first era on a multi year deal works.

No thanks. I think it's already passed but.... I have a hard enough time keeping up with my own cap as it is.

If we have too constantly pay attention to this when trading with others then no, only if there is a real easy way to keep track and talon don't have to do extra stuff. If I got to keep track then no. Trading is already at an all time high, I do think adding this would make trading endless. So I gues I answered my own question...NO THANKS
