  1. Tatar already has a needed spot so moving him does not help. Byron is "fine" but we need an upgrade there. Perhaps Pheolling takes third line C, move Kman up to 2nd line and Domi on the wing? We definitely need a LD but I don't see how you can be happy with our current top 6 forwards
  2. I agree that the left D is a pressing need but I don't see how you look at our right wingers and think that is fine. Byron and Armia are 3rd line guys but we will have one of them playing ont he second line unless something changes
  3. We all know that we need a solid upgrade at LD and top 6 forward (right winger or upgrade at centre). I want MB to address at least one of our needs if not both. My question is what are we willing to give up to get that upgrade? Drouin seems to be part of the new "Ryder, Halak and a 2nd" proposals that we keep seeing but Drouin alone is not going to get us the upgrade that we really need. Our current line up: Tatar - Danault - Gallagher Drouin - Domi - Byron Lehkonen - Kotkaniemi - Armia Cousins - Thompson - Weal Peca Hudon Mete - Weber Chiarot - Petry Kulak - Folin/Juulsen Reilly Notable prospects: Suzuki Phoelling Romanov Caufield Brook Primeau Fleury I think that our defense needs help on the left side but when I look at our right wingers I am even more concerned. What can we realistically give up that will get us the return we need?
  4. Yeah my mind was kind of thinking along the lines of Mete and Byron or Kulak and Tatar type of comparison. Not sure which I would do
  5. If MB addresses this through trade which LD would you include in that trade (not saying we need to trade one of them but if we had to include one)? Mete likely has more value than Kulak so we would need fewer extra pieces but are we willing? I really like Kulak's game and if he was the D to go then we would need better extra pieces (more like Kulak would be the extra piece). I would trade either without question if it meant a true upgrade but all things considered which would you trade?
  6. Considering that Toronto paid a 1st to rid themselves of 1 year of Marleau....
  7. Does anyone else think that a line of Lehkonen - Danault - Armia would be one of the NHL's toughest lines to play against? Lehkonen is absolutely relentless on the puck Danault is strong in both ends of the ice and has a very high hockey IQ Armia is a combination of the other 2 While none of them are stars, all three of them have some offensive skill as well. They would drive other teams top lines crazy.
  8. While I agree that our overall need upfront is a sniper like Laine we would do very well to add a high end player like Mariner and I would not hesitate to offer 11M
  9. Count me in the nay! I would do Hudon (who has no place here) for Puljujarvi.
  10. I don't think Hab29 is alone in his frustration with MB. MB track record in the off season has been really poor with the exception of last year. Last year he did an amazing job and got great value back in the trades. So when he signs a couple of depth players it does raise red flags that this is the MB we all know and last year was a one off. I do think and have posted as such that we need to give MB the benefit of the doubt for now. We have time and cap space so lets see what he does with it. I also posted that if he does nothing else and we should rage. With our prospect pool, cap space and picks, we should be aggressive and add player(s) that we need. I hope he comes through
  11. I wonder if a 10.4 million by 5 year offer sheet would get it done? I think we should bite the bullet and offer Mariner 12 million by 5 years (more term if he is willing) and give up 4 firsts. We have the strongest prospect pool that we have had in decades. Now is the time to be bold and the chances of drafting a Mariner calibre player in later first rounds is slim.
  12. Unless their is a corresponding trade incoming I don't know why we needed this player. There must be something coming
  13. This is exactly a patch up like you said and does not address our real need. I hope he is not done
  14. This is garbage and not nearly enough
