Episode Sergei Zubov (256):Calgary Arena Debate. Clarkson Trade and LTIR Explained…Sort of. Luongo Cap Recapture Explained…Sort of.

Is the Calgary arena deal good for the city? Dale and I disagree.  Can anyone explain how the Leafs are using LTIR and the David Clarkson contract? We try. Dale was curious about the Luongo cap recapture calculation so went through it and debated whether he is a Hall of Famer.
