  1. TO’s last year 1st got traded for muzzin. So it would be 3 years of no firsts.
  2. No chance cgy gives up on mt, especially for anything in that package. Ottawa should be interesting to watch come trade deadline though
  3. No they have an amazing top pair in jones and werenski. The kind of top pair every team dreams about. You want jones the price starts at a young 1c, and we have one of those but it makes no sense to trade him. Imagine a team wanting petey, but with the caveat that they dont want to trade any first rounders or any of their 5 best young players/prospects. Now would you even bother to hear the offer before hanging up after that?
  4. He's about as available as pettersson, is there a package that could theoretically land him sure but its never going to be worth the overpayment needed.
  5. Would love to get the sweedish raymond, kid looks amazing
  6. Really excited to see how pod progresses this year, does anyone know when the khl season starts.
  7. Heres to hoping the new cba comes with some compliance buyouts
  8. Hes gonna get way overpaid by a gm desperate for toughness
  9. This is a great move thats should make us optimistic for the extra flexibility, but instead i’m filled with impending dread.
  10. Is it too much to ask that the jets re sign myers before july 1
  11. Pretty much this. Dumping that contract will cost a decent asset unfortunately. Any team needing to reach the cap floor has tons of options to get there, theres plenty of teams right now that are desperate to dump cap and are willing to pay to do so.
  12. I agree, but the problem is they havent improved their team. And now they still have to replace Marleau with a player in the roster. So effectively they are paying more for less on the ice. Theres gonna be a lot of ahl calibre players on the leafs next year, with the hopes that the stars can carry the team with even less depth. The fact that an aging tavares had a career year, by a lot. Along with marner, reilly and freddy having career years. Will that much go right again with less depth to fall back on. Its gonna be very interesting to watch them next year. They may have a worse backend then us
  13. I respectfully disagree that he doesnt have the high end offensive vision to be an elite scorer, i think he absolutely does. If you watch his games and even highlights he is capable of making incredible passes and reading the play at a high level. The problem is he doesnt use those abilities nearly enough, as you said he prefers to take the puck directly to the net regardless of who or what stands in his way. He also has an absolutely incredible shot, but again he rarely uses it as he prefers to be up close and personal with the goalie. But i will agree that his biggest issue is learning to use his line mates more, if he can do that his point production will shoot way up. The good thing is that is mostly coachable. When to use his size and speed and when to slow down and make smart plays. he was touted as an nhl ready player. And while that is true in a way due mostly to his physical strength and ability to defend extremely well. He is still a very raw talent that needs to be polished by a good coaching staff, the good news is is is very willing to learn and he already possesses all the skills needed. Will he be able to focus his game to become an elite player in this league? Only time will tell, but he is very exciting and is something every team in the league wants.
  14. He may have the option to play in europe, but i’m not sure. I doubt it comes down to that anyways, sounds like none of the rfa s want to sign first is all. Luckily we dont have to worry about an offer sheet
  15. From what i understand its because he didnt play at least ten games in his first season so he doesnt qualify
  16. Correct me if i’m wrong but i dont think brock qualifies to be offer sheeted
  17. Colorado has an embarrassment of riches on the back end, besides barrie the guy i’d like to pry out of them is timmins. Wish we had more of what they are looking for to trade.
  18. Sure they paid the price to dump a bad contract, and i have to assume they will re sign marner. But they will most likely end up having to fill out their nhl roster with ahl talent just for the cost savings. For a team that already had holes and almost no depth, things could get dicey in leaf land. They may only be a legit playoff team as long as JT can live up to his career year last year.
  19. Montreal is looking for a LD, maybe we can trade him there, cale fleury is worth taking a chance on.
