Neutral Posted December 6, 2021 Share Posted December 6, 2021 Spin off thread episode 3 now?? Tyler Motte is a pending UFA, I want us to keep Motte or "Clamato as I like to call him for fun". Tyler Motte shows up every single game to play! Just like our main man Burrows did for us! Tyler Motte is a very good penalty killer who has chipped in some short handed goals for us. Motte is a bit injury prone some might say, but he plays the game hard and finishes his checks and he is NOT afraid to block shots on the PK all while sacrificing his body to do it. Tyler Motte is a versatile player, he was very offensive in College but adapted his playing style to carve out what I think has been a good NHL career so far. He is young enough to fit in with our team for a few more years and might blossom on an offensive minded third line under Boudreau. So to me, once we hire a new GM and he gets to assess the team I hope we try to reach out to Motte's agent and lock him up for a few more years. Of course the big question is at what cost term and cap hit wise? 3-5 years @ or under 2m per? He reminds me of Kraken F Tanev, maybe not exactly the same and I hope not going to cost near that term or cap hit either. If the new GM does not want to retain Motte after this year that would be unfortunate but it would be a "Must Trade" at the TDL. Could we get a 2nd round pick for Motte? Would we be looking to try and get a younger C or defensive D in return and a later pick? Anyways, I know this is not a new style of thread but it was successful in the past and I really hope we keep Motte around for a while, guy has been through a lot in life and spoke out about it which I give him credit and thank him for doing that. First we had Burrows then Hansen now Motte is our "Swiss Army Knife" all situations player who could be put on any line and contribute with his tenacious forecheck and 100% effort night in night out! Thanks for reading if you got this far, now discuss his future with us and a potential contract extension term and $$ wise... 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
