Sportsnet: Elliotte Friedman and Jeff Marek on their 32 Thoughts Podcast – Trippin’ Out In Trenton on the Florida Panthers and their goaltending circumstance with Spencer Knight after his three-year agreement extension recently and Sergei Bobrovsky moving forward.

** NHLRumors.com transcription

Friedman: “So, Spencer Knight got a three-year offer worth $4.5 million each year from Florida week and the Panthers took some heat over it I believe.

Marek: “For having $14.5 million worth of goaltenders?”

Friedman: “Well, I think it was just the Knight contact specifically.”

Marek: “Because he hasn’t played enough games?”

Friedman: “He hasn’t played a lot. He’s a truly skilled man and if you were to inform me he was to dip into a level he’s should have to be paid like that, I don’t believe that anyone would be amazed. But it was quickly.

Like, if you’re Boston and you’ve got Jeremy Swayman, you’re taking a look at that and stating, ‘uh oh.’ Like that’s an issue for us.

The thing that is intriguing about this one is, so, Sergei Bobrovsky has actually 2 years left prior to his no-trade provision ends up being a partial no-trade.”

Marek: “And the actual money really drops.”

Friedman: “And the cash drops. After 2 more seasons, he signed a $70 million agreement, $58 countless it will be paid. And that will want the very first year of Spencer Knight’s agreement.

So if there is ever a time Florida is going to pay somebody to take Bobrovsky off their hands, it’s going to be then. So that is the time to take a look at this.

The other thing is, that I had actually spoken with another group, that what they informed me that they thought that everyone idea Jake Oettinger was going to can be found in around the $5 million variety. So he believes, this is what this GM informed me, he believes that Florida was working out the handle Oettinger at 5. So you got Oettinger at $5 and Knight can be found in at $4.5 . And Oettinger was available in at $4 , and I believe that’s a circumstance where Oettinger stated, ‘I’m not missing out on time. Get the offer done, I’m not missing out on time.’

Then what do you do? You’re stuck.”
