Now that I've read the article, I've re-read what you wrote. I don't know why Jagr even hired his agent Petr Svoboda if he's the one making personal calls to GMs.

 

I can see there being some truth to it but the truth is most likely being twisted.

What would it take to get Bryan Little?

1 year left on his current contract.... $4.7 million cap hit.

Paul Byron and some draft capitol? They could use a W that can move up and down the lineup while they ease in Kyle Connor and they need somebody cheaper as they have a lot of raises due next year

Hi folks, first time poster. I would expect Byron to be a nice addition such a package, I would also expect to have to include a D prospect... likely one just drafted since Juulsen is too much in this case, and then another pick.

I guess Little has said he has no interest leaving Winnipeg. Wants to retire there.

I read something on another site that raised this question and comparison in my mind.

 

Who would you prefer to have on your team. Jonathan Drouin or Matt Duchene? Either way, I would think maybe the comparison is at least close between the two? 

 

The reason I ask that is to compare their trade value. If these two players are somewhat close in value, Drouin was traded for 1 bluechip, top prospect with a few NHL games under his belt.

 

But for Duchene, Sakic is asking for a top 4 D, a 1st round pick and a top prospect.....plus?? 

 

If my logic is at least close, then Sakic may be losing a lot of respect around the league for asking what he is for a very good center, but whose numbers this past year were 18 goals,  23 assists,  41 points and he was a  -34.

 

I'd love to have Matt Duschene on our team, like Galchenyuk he may have had a down year last season, but the asking price isn't just ridiculous, it's totally out of whack. If Sakic brought his asking price more in line with the Drouin trade something would likely develop pretty quickly.  

 

What do you think?

Drouin... the ceiling is much higher, he's younger, and he's signed for 5.5 million for 6 years, Duchene is  6million for 2 years. 

 

Not really close in my mind.

I think Drouin is going to be a stud on this team.

 

As much as hated him for bailing on his team 2 years ago.

Agree 100%. Duchene is overrated.

I find it mordantly amusing to consider that, had he done that with the Habs, he'd likely have been shipped out, pursued by MB's imprecations about 'character and leadership,' or else forced to sign a bridge deal in order to 'prove' that he deserves the big money. But since he comes from another system, why, he's virtue incarnate :rolleyes:

I was pretty defensive of Drouin when that was happening. Others were against him being a Hab. I guess time heals wounds. 

 

My only problem is that I would not be shocked if he gets a red carpet and space from Julien on and defensive errors while Galchenyuk still gets stapled to the bench for not breathing defensively enough.

So here is my main point.....the consensus here judging from your comments, is that Drouin is the better player.....and he was traded by a respected GM in Tampa for a 1st round blue chip defenseman, who hasn't established himself in the NHL yet.

 

The point is.... Sakic is asking for a top 4 D, a first round pick plus a good prospect, for a player debatably not as valuable as Drouin. Insane.

Would i take 60 point duchene on the Habs? of course.

 

Do I want to pay the price Sakic is asking for?  Hell no.  He's asking for a Tavares level package for Matt Duchene.  Thats the issue and that is why many people are saying he's overrated.
