Odd. Posted April 30, 2022 Share Posted April 30, 2022 I thought I’d make a thread because this off season is possibly our most important off-season in the last decade or so, and I think there’s some great discussions to be had about others opinions on how this team should move forward. Do we keep Bruce? I think that’s a no brainer, yes of course. Do we sign and trade Boeser? Will he take a respective cap discount due to his lacklustre season? Boeser is good for 25 goals a season give or take, though completely clearing his cap hit and allowing us to address organizational needs might be the best course of action to take, and I don’t consider this lightly, Boeser is very likeable and the day he leaves is going to be quite bittersweet. Are we still far off from being a contender? Top 10 team in the league after Bruce took over, but there’s still some glaring issues this team has, particularly the bottom 6 depth and a lack of a 30-40 point RHD. I don’t have any hot take in particular, but I wouldn’t be opposed to the idea of trading our 1st round pick as part of a package for a defenseman, but only if it’s for a defenseman. I just want to see some major changes. I don’t mean completely overhaul the roster, but I consider a major change to be getting a bonafide RHD, and maybe 1 or 2 bottom 6 players that can change the makeup of our team dynamic. As for expectations, I’d like to see Petey get bigger, Boeser to work on cutting down a bit and improving his speed and acceleration, and Podz/Hogz to take some leaps in offensive production. Anyways flame on. Mods if you think this thread isn’t needed, or if it gets too heated, you can lock it up. 3 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
