[Rumour] Things have turned sour in the RNH contract negotiations


Recommended Posts

The team should only spend money on a top quality, physical 2 way 3rd line center (or a better top 6 winger with more offense than Pearson so they can move him to the 3rd line if they plan to use EP, Horvat, Miller all as centers) and/or a top pairing quality, defensively strong rhd.

 

Outside of those 2 needs, no big dollar, longer term deals. Especially for bottom 6 support players. Pay for guys who will drive their line and can make the players around them better.

If Green decides to have Miller at a centre, l would not mind RNH slotting in as LW in the top 6.  $5M x 5yr.

I mean Reinhart and Domi combined make as much as Eriksson and Holtby.

 

It all depends what we’re able to do with buyouts, the expansion draft, and contract terminations. We could have a decent amount of cap.

 

If Benning is true about being aggressive then we need to make a couple big moves like Montreal did last summer.

 

Reinhart Pettersson Boeser

Domi Horvat Hoglander

Pearson Miller Podkolzin 

Motte Beagle Lockwood/Lind/Highmore

 

Two big moves and our top 9 is looking amazing.

 

we're going to need 4 lines that can be relentless if we're going to get past Vegas or the Av's, and thats looking pretty good to me.

 

We'd have to move Schmidt to make the cap room for that, but maybe thats OK. 

 

I wonder if CBJ would have interest in Schmidt? he's probably their #3 guy there. Maybe move him for Domi and a late pick? 

 

If Jim can do that, the Jake and Holtby buyouts and bit of cap savings from Nate vs Domi gets us most of the way to Sammy's salary.

Yea I was thinking Schmidt is the odd man out.


Not that I think he wants out (that’s been debunked) but to me offers value to another team and it may be risky for us to go another season with him if he just isn’t a fit here.

 

Their may be some other decent top 4 D men available for cheap due to the expansion draft. I think we should be exploring that.

Our D will be absolute trash on the right side though.

I'd hate to send Nate to Buffalo, he's a good guy and doesn't deserve that. But CBJ may want him. 

 

If we drop to 10 on Wednesday, I'd be OK with moving that for Reinhart. 

 

But Benning seems to have a knack for coming up with deals no one saw coming, so who the heck knows?

The real improvement needs to be balanced though. Our D would be garbage.

Our D was garbage with Nate.

 

We don’t necessarily need to spend big to improve our D. Just some deft trades and signings for undervalued guys.

I see where you're coming from for sure, but I do not think we are a rebuilding team anymore. The whole team collectively got &^@#ed by the variant, and resulted in double penetration with a condensed end to the schedule, while the beginning was already pretty tough. That, Pettersson's wrist, Miller being lost in space and a couple other things really &^@#ed us right.

 

Regardless, I guess we can conservatively say we are HOPEFULLY at the tail end of our rebuild. 

 

Just have to sell it to whoever you want to get.

we might be at the end of our rebuild but we've still missed the playoffs 6 times since 2013

Nate wasnt the main reason our D was garbage. How they are coached to play defense is the biggest problem imo.

 

Not opposed to moving him but the qustion is who will be replacing him.

 

When I think deft trading and undervalued signings, Benning is not the GM I think of.

So much for his clean slate I guess.

I didnt say he wont be able to do it, I said historically he hasnt shown a great affinity for doing so.

 

One has nothing to do with the other.

It was very much implied and now your side stepping.

It wasnt implied at all. I hope he proves he can. There is just nothing in his history to suggest it at this point. So his future moves are very much wait and see for me.

Nuge was over-paid at $6mil. He is soft, best suited to the wing and is a good player, not great. IMO he is worth a maximum of five million for a maximum of five seasons.

You're right. He was over-paid because he was a 1st overall pick. Hasn't lived up to that. Too soft. Pass.

Not sure how you see perfect 3rd line center in Nuge of all people. Adam Lowry outta Winnipeg is the perfect 3rd line center.
