Interesting... With Sweden he seemed to go to the net similar to what Pearson does with Horvat. 

What role did Loui have on Horvats line and how many minutes with Horvat did he get!? 

Because he knows that in an exhibition Euro game no one is going to make him pay for going to the net.

he still goes to the net a lot if you check out his shot maps

interesting to compare it to Lucic who's a lot more spread out and shooting from far more crappy areas: https://www.icydata.hockey/players/1572/milan-lucic

What does any of this have to do with what I said? We'll very likely get our guy at 10, so why take a lesser player on a longer deal with a NMC to move up 2 spots? Anything short of Byram being at 8 isn't worth moving up 2 spots. And if Byram were there why would Edmonton pass him up? 

 

Picking 8th overall as opposed to 10th overall will make a big difference to Jim Benning.  

 

If we were picking after NY Rangers in 2017, we wouldn't have Elias Petersson.  They had the 7th overall pick and we had the 5th.  

Think of the difference between having Cody Glass or Lias Andersson as opposed to Elias.  

 

Anaheim Ducks have the 9th overall pick and they're one of the best drafting teams, so jumping ahead of them and Edmonton makes a huge difference in my opinion.

You’re kidding right? Granlund is one of the most defensively responsible players, Bear was injured most of the season.

Wouldn’t bother trying to be logical with this guy, he doesn’t think highly of our actual roster players, Bear was calculated risk that worked out great, the past two years when he’s played he’s definitely shown he belongs in the top six, Granlund is definitely a tier above Megna and Chaput, not flashy but a serviceable utility player, and has some use in the shoot-outs although this year wasn’t as good.  He thinks Shinkaruk would have been just as good which is hilarious.

Potting in a rebound when other players get double teamed does not equal driving to the net.

 

Stats have to be used in context, like watching the games.

if anything its underwhelming, but I don't see anything in his history thats trading for a bad contract. 

 

I really like the Pearson deal, if we get that guy who showed up at the end of the season its a pretty nice deal for us. 

Management shifted when they traded Burrows and Hansen, and the days is using good/very good (Vrabta/Miller) was over.  It’s created an ambience of that he’s gun shy since LE given how active he was each year in the off season, aside from the minor signings..however it’s what we needed to do (bottom out) that’s happend now and we are on the upswsing..

Bye, Felicia is a dismissive term which can be used in a number of different contexts. Most simply and frequently, it is used as a cold way to bid someone a less-than-fond farewell.

so you mean Loui's style of play for his entire career? did you expect him to be a power forward when he got here? 

 

there are several ways to be effective in front of the net along with "driving".

Lol wait?! So bearschit getting a 13 minute free ride on the top 3 lines is just as fair as 13 seconds on the fourth line? Please.

 

he didn’t make it because we already ruined him and Calgary is way more stacked than we are.

 

i am not saying he would be a star or anything. But if he was gifted 13 minutes for 4 seasons in a row he would be at least as good as baerschit and jv. Not very good but that’s not the point. The point is baerschi and Granlund got free rides too so people shouldn’t whine too much about LE whining. At least he paid his dues unlike some of other hacks.

Or perhaps management did not see the potential compared to bear or jake. But, hey they have way less hockey experience/knowledge than you. Which team do you work for again?

We should be happy, he finished the year kinda well on bo’s wing with pearson and now he’s scoring internationally and saying it’s because of our coach...

 

boost that trade value and let’s offload him woo!

Plus we lose a protection spot in the expansion draft. 

He has to wiave his NMC to be traded. Unless the player is a more in demand player I will call it...only then would the new team be asked or feel obligated to retain that NMC. Lucic's recent fall in play means if he wants a fresh start he is going to have to be open where he goes and won't have that NMC protection anymore

if we can't trade him, then I hope Green sits him in the press box a lot.

Well there goes the preferential treatment he was getting hopefully .  Plan to see his az in the press box finally.  What a clown. This guy is useless already, and now a locker room issue as well. What a waste of a uniform.

Hard to argue, indeed.
