    Mantha might be done for the year - what now

    Crayons, you say?

    Pierre is a creep. I wonder what crop of 10 year old players he is stalking now in preparation for being "knowledgeable" for the draft in several years.

    Pierre clearly hasn't been watching

    I mean, they don't have to be flaunted as a line. Just having 3 french Canadians of that calibre will be enough to rot Montreal's s***, and I'm all here for it. He's certainly the closest thing since. If we win the lottery, I hope he does hit those highs.

    I just want us to flaunt Mantha-Veleno-Lafreniere every time we play the Habs. And while their fans envy our all french line, Zadina will fill their net with pucks.

    And with the nature of the game with salary caps and what not, massive overpayments in trades never happen like they used to. When big names DO get moved these days, it's always for less than anyone anticipates. The Sens are damn lucky for the Sharks misfortunes this year. At the time of the Karlsson trade, that first round pick was never expected to be a potential lottery pick.

    Fabbri and Zadina have both been positives in a terrible season. My two cents.

    Comrie must be the most argued about AHL goalie of all time

    Guys like McDavid are never a risk of becoming a Nino Neidereitter. They are just that good that it is a foregone conclusion they'll be top players in the league. Lafreniere, while not at that McDavid level, is in the same conversation. This is not the Nolan Patrick draft, after all. Most years everything you're saying is true. But this coming draft is one of those rare exceptions. Considering how much more important the draft is now compared to the Lindros days, it's also a lot less likely goes overboard to pry the first overall pick, as you'd cripple the farm to do so. Back then? Just use UFA and trade draft picks to make up the difference. Mathews and Laine was also another exception. Both guys spent their draft years playing against men so it was easier to see what they were. Svech was a nice consolation prize in his draft year, but the Sabres got a generational talent on the blueline. There was no doubt about that before the draft or since.

    Oh yeah, I definitely think that trade is definitely not a one-for-one. Even then, it's just one example of the type of trade for AA that does make sense, based on this season's performance. If AA were to go into the summer willing to sign a short, cap-friendly prove it deal, I'd be all for it. I just don't think that is his MO at all. It's definitely not what his agent is known for.

    Let's see if you think the same thing when he has his Mitch Marner holdout this summer

    Absolutely. I've always said that trading AA makes far more sense during the summer than it does at the deadline. I've also always thought Edmonton would be a good trade partner. His speed and skill on McDavid's wing is something they could use. Perhaps a deal involving AA and Puljujarvi. Fresh start for two players. Could be the type of trade where both teams win.

    I just think we're done seeing AA in Detroit beyond this season. It feels like the writing was on the wall for him for a while now.

    He will blame his bad year on how he was used and drag his feet in negotiations. He's done it before and his agent is famous for his players holding out. Yzerman will handle it like he did with Drouin. Too bad he isn't french.

    Truth. Reminds me of Helm in his early years.
