  1. Andrei Markov tribute thread - officially not back

    Apparently nobody wants to give him what he's asking for the term he's asking.
  2. Andrei Markov tribute thread - officially not back

    If this is because he has some other deal in the works that will add significant salary, maybe I get it. I still wouldn't like it -- Bergevin has utterly forgotten loyalty. You should always try to sign players who want to play for you and have the ability to contribute at a reasonable price. But I'd understand it. Cap space is finite. I just don't think we're going to see anything monumental coming down the pipe to explain not filling up the cap space.
  3. David Desharnais

    The irony is, without Therien to put Desharnais in roles he isn't suited for, he could have been an asset to the team.
  4. Ales Hemsky signs with Montreal

    This would have been a good idea. However, it would have been complicated as all frak. Players earn their income for each game wherever the game is played. So 50% of your tax burden goes to your home state/province+country. The other 50% depends greatly on your schedule. Florida may have low tax burdens (no idea, just an example), but Tampa and Miami have to play a lot of games in Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa - so they'd have to have an compensating salary cap advantage over a team in another division. The calculations required would make accountants and tax lawyers among the most sought after professions in the world.
  5. Defence woes

    It was said with a fair bit of hyperbole. I do remember the 60ish point seasons, quite well. The point was his resurgence this year was uncanny. He compensated for his loss of speed with perfect positional play. His feathered passes were uncannily accurate. He was the epitome of hockey smarts. If he stays healthy, this is the type of player who's going to play into his 40s and remain effective.
  6. Defence woes

    Weber is in the prime of his career, right now. 31 is not old in the nhl. 34-35 is where the big decline usually starts... unless you're Andrei Markov and you have the best season of your career at 38.
  7. Defence woes

    Hmm. we were using Emelin as top 4 last year (which I admit, is not ideal), and Schlemko is strictly an upgrade of Emelin across the board.
  8. Defence woes

    We have 4 capable lhds, and only two rhds. (At all.)
  9. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    I suppose. But just remember how Emelin looked playing on his wrong side. It doesn't really matter. Severson is a longshot potential franchise D-man. He's not Subban, but I don't see NJ taking that risk. (On the other hand, I recall someone trading away a certain someone for Scott Gomez...)
  10. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    In this case, we're not losing galchenyuk for a third paring d-man though, we're losing our 1st round pick for a 22-year old third pairing d-man who can move the puck like mad and is already a 31 point per year guy in NJ. Basically, an upgrade on Beaulieu that is top 4 potential (and actually appears to be likely to get there, unlike Beaulieu.)
  11. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    It's not the lack of talent for our RHDs that concerns me, it's the lack of bodies. Right now, we have only two habs d-men that shoot right, Weber and Petry. Meanwhile, we have Markov, Schlemko, Benn, and Davidson shooting left. Right now, one of them has to crossover to their worse side. Worse yet, those are the only 6 NHL ready defensemen we have on our roster -- if one of them gets injured, we're in trouble. I'd love for Davidson to be the 7th D-man, and to have a great kid like Severson in our top 6.
  12. 2017 NHL Offseason Thread

    Good Canadian boy, Methot, manages to block all 7 Canadian teams for trades - putting Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, and Montreal on his No Trade list, and he can't be moved back to Ottawa before January. Very patriotic. In case that finger doesn't heal, I have a particular finger to give him.
  13. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    My issue here is Galchenyuk has already proven he's a legitimate top 6 forward, and even scored 30 goals. First overall picks are great, but every once in a while you get an Alexei Yashin or Alexandre Daigle. What you do is trade Galchenyuk for Damon Severson to address our rhd need, and to balance the added value in Galchenyuk, you also swap 1st round picks (and grab Patrick with it.) I also don't think NJ does this, though.
  14. Defence woes

    Petry has been a great second pairing d-man. I've loved everything I've seen from Benn since we got him. Markov... at some point the wheels have to come off, but for now, this guy is still amazing. I felt better with Emelin injured than when he was in the lineup. At this point i'm rather worried about the third pairing. Looks like Emelin and ... Davidson? Nesterov isn't getting a contract. And what happens when someone gets injured? We obviously need some more D-men.
  15. Expansion Draft Discussion, Emelin to Vegas

    That's not a horrible outcome. Nothing against turtleneck, but his play has declined below his salary. I'd rather it be Emelin, who's never been worth his salary, but we can only lose one of them...
