Nuxfanabroad Posted December 12, 2019 Share Posted December 12, 2019 I'm hoping for an open-ended thread, that'll lend itself to ideas, input & discussion on the team's rebuilding pace. Unsure if there's appetite for it, but here's the hypothetical: Dec becomes an absolute drag(2-7, last 9 games)..& we stumble/fumble into 2020 w/38 pts, in 40 games. All skaters stay at about the pt % they're currently on. Edler is back in mid, late Jan, maybe only Ferland is LTIR. (pls accept these given^ variables, for ease of thread debate/discussion). Then I'd like to hear from any/all posters, your ideas for the season's 2nd half, if this(or fairly close) were to transpire. A few that I can start off with: 1- We're NOT gonna pull a StLoo. for anyone who might point back to that. No, our key guys would still be simply too young. 2- So do you trade some value/key guys, to collect picks AND stealth-tank? I feel this would be a very fair question/idea. 3- Sign Jacob? Trade him? Keep status-quo w/our tandem? 4- What to do about the head coach? Is he down to wks/season-end? 5- Focus more returns(from deals) on youth to help Comets? EG: More young prospects in return, than picks? *****some random opinions***** I'd like Tram back in black. A 3 or 4 yr deal, around 10-12 mill should entice. I'd trade Tanev & maybe the Big Tuna. For these types, a 2nd & prospect probably is worthwhile. Maybe move Benn to RhD-side? Let's try some of our depth, young D in 2nd half, especially Sautner & Brisebois. What do we REALLY have in these young players? If they implode..who cares? 2020 1st just keeps inching higher. Rafferty is debatable(he's really styling down there..maybe let him run w/it). OJ needs time, so don't rush him. - accept some 2021 picks(instead of 2020) if you can upgrade the rounds, for some of our fwds, say. Patience - Let's roll the dice more with youth in the 2nd half. DON'T recall kids, just so they make the F***ing coffee. - Trade some vets, & sign some college kids(Lockwood, Madden, Rathbone) We'll still have lots of vets in 2020-21(Edler, Myers, JT, Beags, etc...), but I think it's time that over half our roster SHOULD be guys under 25. Roll with it(the good & bad) & just let them GROW together. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
