  1. Severson is not that good Dobson will be good, and has tremendous potential that is un-realized at this point (*He may never get there!) Brock has! I mean, truthfully...do we actually know?
  2. Trade Suggestions (aka Sh#t on the wall) 1. NJ...............LW Miles Woods + LW Noland Foote + Van 2020 1st + NJ 2021 2nd Van..............RW Brock Boeser + G Thatcher Demko + RW Will Lockwood 2. OTT.............C Chris Tierney + RHD Erik Brannstrom + Loui Eriksson Van..............RW Brock Boeser + G Thatcher Demko 3. MTL.............LW/C Jesperi Kotkaniemi + RHD Josh Brooks Van..............RW Brock Boeser + LHD G. Brisebois 4. Minn............RHD Matt Dumba + C/RW Luke Kunin + LW Jordan Greenway Van.............RW Brock Boeser + RW Jake Virtanen + RW Lucas Jasek 5. Buff.............RW/C Sam Reinhart + RHD Rasmus Ristolainen Van.............RW Brock Boeser + RW Brandon Sutter + LHD Olli Juolevi Any of them work?
  3. Just rough numbers Joe but it works short term Not a bad crew! If you are looking just at next year......Pettersson and Hughes are still on ELC's so you can knock off 12.00 Million Just rough numbers, Everybody!
  4. I get a kick out of those who say Dobson has a higher value than Boeser Boeser is a Calder Trophy runner up, Dobson could not even get a full season in Boeser is a Dobson + in any scenario He is a top 20 RWer in his 3rd year..................that is nothing to sneeze at In the mean time, the Islander are strong at RHD and have a lot of older RWers It is not that the trade does not have merit Dobson+ for Boeser, IMO
  5. Here is our RW depth chart right now............. JT Miller.......yes he plays LW right now, but can play LW/C/RW Boeser.........RW only All have the ability to play first line Toffoli...........plays RW, but plays both wings Podkolzin.....RW only ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Virtanen.......Can play both LW and RW Sutter...........C/RW All have the ability to play 3rd line Ferland........LW/RW Gaudette......Plays center, but can play RW ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Leivo............LW/RW* Motte............LW/C/RW McEwen.......C/RW * All are depth wingers 10/11/12/13 positions Eriksson.......LW/RW (with the exception Leivo/McEwen/Lind can play up) Lind..............RW* Jasek............RW Bailey............RW Lockwood.....RW Just saying!
  6. Deb.........I love your Blue and green blood. But I am not sure, Brock was regularly playing with Pettersson when he came back, and IMO, Toffoli was a much better fit with Miller and Pettersson That is not to say that Brock did not fit, only that Toffoli added to the line................. I could be wrong?
  7. To me the point is something has to move............period So, when we look at it, it is one of the following 1. We trade a prospect or pick along with a cash dump to sign everyone we want 2. We let an asset walk for free and accept the lose 3. WE trade a current player for futures to open up cap space So, again, ok, does our current team have the potential to win the cup as it is? Keeping Tanev, Markstrom, Toffoli and lessers, are we strong enough to play the Tampa Bays, Colorado's, Edmonton's, Boston's, Washington's and Pittsburgh's etc., and beat them in a 7 game cup final series. Could we even get to the finals with that team? Keeping in mind we would have lost one of Podkolzin, Hoglander or our 2021 1st? Or are we better to let one Tanev or Toffoli walk away and promote from within? Or are we better to move a player from our strength, to remove cap, and promote from within? I see these as the questions............I am not into the blame game....unscheduled things have changed with Covid-19, you can't blame anyone of that. I absolutely do not see how moving Boeser's 5.875 Million for a RHD fixes our current cap problem, as much as it does fix a positional need, and I believe that fixing the cap issue is the goal on Benning's table.
  8. Money aside Although Meier and Boeser are both very good players, and both have 1st line capabilities, Meier is a tad better....... But I wasn't going to a talent upgrade in this proposal I was exchanging a RW for a LW at the elite level And for the Canucks that makes sense.......not too sure it does for the Sharks But IMO, it does not change SJ's win now focus, as again, the talent is very similar
  9. I did not realize his price tag, when I made the thread.......(I did know and forgot! ....Old age!) But, still.......I think it matters where the brass project where top players contracts will be in 4 years..... I do realize there is a freeze, but if the TV revenue comes in quicker then what they think, then the players will want part of that, pushing up the price I do think 10 million is too much...but maybe we should be looking at a player something like that for the left side I honestly think Boeser is the guy to go...how and for what remains to be seen
  10. Maybe! But maybe they take Boeser, Eriksson and Demko? They have Karlsson 11.5 Million for 7 more years Couture 8.0 Million for 7 more years Burns 8.0 Million for 5 more years Vlasic 7.00 Million for 6 more years Kane 7.00 Million for 5 more years Makes you wonder if Meier is affordable for San Jose We would be pretty good with the cap raising by that time, and all the big contracts signed by then. Not to mention Miller turning 30 and a UFA at that time. Horvat is in the mix too, but Meier is a nice piece and still tradable for 3 more years and still an RFA at the end.
  11. Still trying to improve the team..."MY WAY" LOL But seriously, moving some young RW for some young LW would be a good idea and one less thing to have to fix. I also think Meier is a more aggressive player, and much more JT Miller ish than Boeser, who is more just scorer Both cost about the same, and Meier is locked up 1 more year Who adds and what?
  12. Ha, Ha!..........like a small nation! But seriously, I wonder if they lost money during this Covid-19 and I wonder what their financial forecasts are?
  13. Just another tid-bit Trump has said that if Universities go strictly on-line with their fall and winter courses, he will order Customs to void all student visa's Now, why this is in the Rathbone thread is that, it is one more nail in Rathbone's collegiate career, as even with the huge endowments the Universities will have to really tighten their belts on Monetary Assistant. So, again, as this all unfolds, there is a growing uncertainty in regards to Rathbone's education becomes larger and larger.............. I feel sorry for Rathbone.
