  1. Permanent Rumour Thread

    How is it too much money to have like 24 million in 3 defencemen... when the rest (Kulak, Mete, Juulsen, are all going to be cheap). The issue is who plays on the Left side... not the amount of money in defence. And if Petry or Karlsson is willing to move to LD, then you are set.
  2. Permanent Rumour Thread

    We aren't getting all three. Its likely only 1 of them. But have your lines out to multiple free agents, if you swing and miss on one of them, you have your plan B and plan C. Nothing wrong with that.
  3. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Hes no bob mckenzie. Hes also no eklund. So its possible i guess. I mean his wife has been through a lot in the last year and is local to ottawa, i can see her wanting to be close to family. I can see karlsson wanting tampa. But how does that work cap wise.

    Who is saying it?
  5. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    It can be in play but its about who its in play for Gost sure due to age and contract. But it shouldnt be in play for 29 and 30 year olds . We shouldnt be doing what vegas did with us for pacioretty or what they did for stone or what sj did for karlsson etc... we arent where they are in the build cycle either

    Drouin and a first is likely an overpay. Yeah Maybe Drouin and columbus' 2nd round pick for ghost
  7. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    If the Flyers would go for it... of course. I doubt they do.
  8. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    There is a little more to it than that. Bob mckenzie had far more info on his podcast... both this weeks and his previous one
  9. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Bob mckenzie says hes available cause philly has a shitload of young defencemen and needs some depth scoring. They also have fletcher who believes that you need a leader for all the young d. Provorov and sanheim are their untouchables. Gostisbehere has more value than myers, morin, and hagg. Gudas and macdonald are the expected vet leaders. So that is 8 defencemen (6 young, 2 vets) and moving one to improve the forwards is what they are looking at. Where your premise is wrong is that Philly is very deep in young defencemen.
  10. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    I would move the first rounder for gostisbehere but only because he is 26 and has 4 years of a great contract ahead of him. It wouldnt be on the table for a lot of other LHD options out there who are older or have less favourable contracts.
  11. Hopefully hes in the echl and not taking up anothet ld spot in laval (alzner and ouellet are two already)
  12. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Id move a winger like tatar to get a defenceman. But my solution wouldn't be wayne simmonds. There are other ufa forwards id look at though sure.
  13. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    How is Tatar a 2C?
  14. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Giroux is not a centre anymore. Couturier is the Flyers #1. Patrick played #2, but only put up ~30 points. He is still just 20. The Flyers need a #2, to move Patrick to #3 and let him continue to develop. That said the Flyers are likely to be in on trying to sign Kevin Hayes in UFA, so they may not be desperate for Cs in a trade, though they are likely to look for forwards. They also have Morgan Frost as one of their top prospects and are picking 11th in the draft. As for Simmonds, I'd stay far, far away. The guy is declining and is going to get overpaid. He's another Lucic contract waiting to happen. Guys who play as physical as he does, the body breaks down. He'll be 31 before next season. No way am I giving him the money and term needed to sign him as a UFA. As for our team. After searching for years and years and years to fix the centre issue, no way I'm trading Domi.
  15. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Other names who interest me. Minnesota is trading Jason Zucker. I also get the feeling that Paul Fenton is new to the Chiarelli/Dorion club So I'd like to get a guy who is a regular 20 goal scorer (and put up 30 in 2017-18), and is strong at both ends and a good possession player, who is 5.5 million for the next 4 years at a discount in a trade.
  16. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    On the rumoured names I want Jake Gardiner, Cam Fowler, or Shayne Gostisbehere
  17. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Leddy is a heck of a skater (still) so i dont think thats it. For whatever reason, he's giving up way more quality shots against then he was before. He's generating way less shots at the offensive end. And on the RH side. It doesn't matter who he is paired with... his partner does better when not paired with Leddy than when paired with him. All of this is true since Dec 2017. So I'd be really weary of giving up assets for him.
  18. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    The Analytics show a huge drop off in Leddy's game at both ends of the ice which starts in December 2017 and continues to now. Over the last season and a half, he's nowhere close to the defenceman he was the previous 4 seasons. Buyer beware here. I'd want to know why he's fallen off a cliff. He's just 28.
  19. LD: what will happen? What should happen? What could happen?

    He just went through being a scapegoat of the media and fans in Toronto. I would be shocked if he ends up signing with the Habs. I bet he wants to play in some city that doesn't have 25 beat reporters at every game.
  20. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Thats actually a decent offer imo. Honka has better pedigree in terms of draft status but Hudon has more success at the NHL level.
  21. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    I'd take a flyer for a cheap price. I've always thought he has talent. I actually think shooting right is an advantage for him. At RHD we can afford to have a 7th or 8th defenceman. At LHD anyone we acquire has to be a top 4, we have more than enough bottom pair and press box guys.
  22. 2019 Memorial Cup

    I don't know what more to expect than 1.75 PPG. He also led both teams in shots on goal in almost every game he played. Guelph dominated possession when his line was on the ice all tournament long. The only thing he didn't have in the Mem Cup that he had in the OHL playoffs were the fancy highlight reel goals, but since he was still getting the same PPG, i don't see why that matters. A goal where you bang in a rebound and a goal where you deke three players is worth the same. And he was still making the highlight reel plays, those just weren't the ones going in during the tournament, the more simple stuff was. That's just sample size though... sometimes your great chances are stopped and the good ones go in, but most of the time its gonna be the other way.
  23. Ouellet re-signs

    Oh i agree And being the same position doesnt help.
  24. Ouellet re-signs

    Its not bad to have a veteran D on Laval, and he'll likely be captain again. That said, I still want to see Walford get a deal.
  25. 2019 Memorial Cup

    Suzuki had 3 goals and 4 assists for 7 points in 4 games. He was every bit as good in the Mem Cup as in the OHL playoffs.
