I feel like they'd want OJ or Rathebone back vs this years 1st since the draft is a weird one, not really keen on that. I think we can get Edler back on a cheaper 1 year deal too. 

A 1st + Rathbone/OJ +  a roster player would be the ask.. 

 

Not getting Ekholm for OJ.

 

We won't be making any trades like that anyways. Those types of trades are for teams making a run at the Cup.

In this COVID era, trading assets for expensive aging talent is no longer a good move - imo; JB should just stay with drafting & development cause there is already a succession plan with his prospects coming in to replace his expensive mistakes (hindsight).

 

Plus, all/most of his Big ticket signing (so far) has mostly been expensive mistakes, perhaps a sign for him to stick with drafting & development but all the pundits and etc.. calling for moves would have nothing to talk about and then complain about when the move(s) don’t work out - hard please unhappy people or in most cases, impossible if someone is just trolling.

The tweet was pointless.

 

We have three injuries. Neither of them are the reason we’re forced to claim waiver players.

 

hahahahahahaha, oh are you serious?

But that would imply the Leafs have been contending for many seasons since they don't have any anchor contracts bringing them down.  Yet, Benning was brought in the same time as Shanahan.

 

Something isn't adding up here ;)

Nylander's contract is absolutely atrocious for a lazy floater who is afraid of the puck and doesn't care about winning in the playoffs, and I sure as hell wouldn't want to pay Rielly's salary and get as defenseman who can't play defense and refuses to even try to play like an NHLer in his own zone.

Yeah...no.

 

Injuries are the last thing the Canucks should be looking to blame for this season.  Enough with this mindless drivel.

Strive to be more like the Leafs, lmfao.  Please.  :rolleyes:

 

It's not April 1st yet.

One team is cruising to the playoffs, has their core signed and sealed, very nice cap structure, no looming issues with the team

 

The other team is...eh.  We all know the issues.

 

There's a lot to learn from how the Leafs are doing things and we shouldn't turn our noses up at them.

After 7 years Jb has built zero depth internally at any position leaving it  necessary  to pick up other teams trash.
Hope jbs and his proven failure  “day by day “ plan is gone soon.

he can take all his crap signings pickups with him.

Benning the laughing  stock of the nhl and stinks of  desperation.

IF you don't like Rielly's contract you're going to be mighty dissapointed when Quinn signs his extension this summer. 

 

Rielly makes only 5 mill per year..  That's a steal of a contract for a player like him in an NHL with a 80+ mill cap ceiling. 

 

Rielly is a top tier offensive dman but way better than Hughes on defense side... Quinn doesn't come close to Rielly in defense and Quinn will be making much more. 

 

Quinn will get better as he matures... but Rielly's contract is not a problem, its a bargain..

Hughes is already better than Rielly in his own zone and much younger.  Personally, the way Rielly plays in his own zone isn't acceptable at any level and he'd be in the press box until he made a commitment to learning how to play defense.  I'm sure as hell not going to pay 5 million for someone who's that much of a liability.

It says quite a lot when his waiver pickups/injury "replacements" are statistically better than his "foundational" periphery/depth players.

 

Yet, some of on here would like to believe that Benning is doing a fantastic job.  It's only a matter of time before his biggest, ardent supporters start citing his waiver pickups as a pro of his management.

I'd chime in but I don't have time for maple leaf fans. I gotta go gotta go worship my golden Benning statue

Those players were very solid players who were in their prime when we signed them. Now they’re past their prime and need to be replaced with younger players. Happens to literally every team.

 

Of course a 26 year old is going to play harder and with more energy than a 33-35 year old. It’s a young mans game now. You wanna blame someone blame ownership for demanding that Benning make the team competitive 6 years ago.

Oh, the ownership is definitely to blame for a lot of this, but come on, everybody with a bit of hockey knowledge knew that Beagle and Roussel for 4 years was asking for trouble.  To give those contracts, while also committing money and term to Myers, Ferland the next season, and already having Eriksson under contract, is just irresponsible, wasteful free-agent management.  That's on Benning.  Not the market, not the state of the team, not injuries, not whatever excuse.  That's on the GM and the GM only.
