  1. I wonder if we used a prospect to get a guy like wood who has another year on his contract, if we could flip him at the draft for a pick. The contracts we want to move we aren’t getting anything for. If a heavy team takes the cup again maybe we can turn a prospect into wood then turn him into a 2020 pick.
  2. Makes you wonder what’s next. We’re all in here, guys. We’re not grabbing one of the big fish and not tuning up the defence too.
  3. If the losing cup run happens while these guys are all still babies, you know damn well this core is the real deal and we can probably win a couple down the road. 2 please.
  4. Yeah I only throw it out there to show what it would take for it to be worthwhile on their end, they need someone that can play now or they probably don’t trade him. If Jake finished the year on a heater and then stumbles next year and gets hurt, we wouldn’t throw him in the bargain bin. Better off hanging on to him and looking for a bounce back unless you’re getting a young impact player back.. Just saying If we were to do it, that’s the most comfortable angle I could see to roll the dice on it. If I really believe in Anderson and think we’d be scoring another JT Miller like win and how confident are we in Tyler madden working out.. If both those things happen, we likely do come out ahead. at the same time if one day we have to chose between gaudette and madden, that deal might be better made then. So In the end I still probably don’t pull the trigger but I can see a case for it.
  5. I’d love him too but we’re going to have to give them at least gaudette or virtanen to make it worthwhile for them. They still probably don’t do it. They’re going to be asking for Boeser. Im still not sure it’s really worth it but here’s a gamble I don’t completely hate .. Pick up Hawyrluk on waivers today then trade Gaudette for Anderson.
  6. That’s a dirty play, no question about it. I hope he’s not marchand/kadri-ish all the time but I love seeing that edge from him. Maybe we got a guy that will go apesh*t in the playoffs and have the monster games you need from your support players.
  7. Exactly the type of addition we’ll need at the time too. In 2 years we’ll have 3 rock solid young centres, a high end offensive defence man and one 30+ sniper. The hard to get parts are there. A tenacious skilled Russian winger will be just what the doctor ordered. If he hits the ground running and we got a goalie, we’ll beat the wheels off the pacific.
  8. I’d take that. 7mill in years 6&7 is almost a slam dunk to come back and bite us but I can handle that over 5.
  9. What a dream for the arena announcer. Can you imagine how hard he’s going to be able to belt out Hoglander in a starting lineup call. I could probably get a pretty good one off and I’m not even good.
  10. If he’s playing well enough that we want him to stay, then he’s going to have a really fun 2 years here. Young Russian star Vasili joins the team in the second year on a team just finding its legs. This guys going to have a blast in Van as long as he takes it seriously and shows up in nhl shape with something to prove. man if we get Nikita back and sign Myers, in 2 years we could have Myers Tryamkin Bo Miller Podkolzin virtanen beagle roussel mckewen. That’s a pretty rugged team surrounding Petey and Quinn.
  11. He probably stays and drafts Byram if he’s still there at 6. Im thinking Broberg went up a tier on Jim’s list and he’s trying to get him before Edmonton.
  12. I think Boeser is in that category. Petterson? Ya, probably will be with the heart and determination he has... but I think Boeser is the first of the elite, elite that we have. everything is trending So right it’s not even funny. We’ve got the top end winger with one of the best shots in the nhl and the selke level workhorse 50-60 point centre already confirmed. Then add Petterson, the hopefully top end first line centre, 2 shots at a #1 goalie with one real close, and now the puck moving top end blueliner who skates like Coffey that we’ve always dreamed of haha. Never thought I’d see the day we had this much quality depth for key positions on our team.. and I didn’t even mention Tryamkin, Hockey Gaud, Jake, Dahlen or Oli. if we land Noel tomorrow I won’t be able to contain myself haha
  13. I’m so glad we didn’t fire Jim after he didn’t draft konecny lol
  14. It still allows us to protect someone else. Maybe allows you to keep Leipsic in the end... but even if it is Sutter. He could still be a decent deadline deal in his contract year.
  15. Totally. Expansion eligibility is priority number 1. As long as that game limit posted above is true I say burn that year off.
