    2024 Draft

    Everything I read about the kid reeks of an Yzerman type player. He's also exactly what is missing in the top 6. Seems like the obvious Yzerman pick it he is still on the board.

    It's also why I think Yzerman should focus on a top 4 LHD and not a RHD. Seider and ASP will have the right side taken care of. Get a guy like Chychrun, and Chiarot could play on the right side until ASP is ready for that role. He has experience playing on the right side. Also agree on Ghost. He was a good fit this season. But let Seider and Edvinsson run the pp units next season.

    2024 Offseason Thread

    Oh for sure. By no means do I think the additions in the lineup I posted are expectations. I feel guys like Guentzel, Stamkos, Chychrun, Markstrom would be the best players to target, with the hope that one (maybe two if lucky) can be acquired. Plenty of options out there outside of those players. Those are more or less off the cuff thoughts of I think who would be great fits in the lineup. He is one season away tops. Wouldn't be surprised and see him pull a Raymond and make the team out of camp this fall. At worst he will need an adjustment period in GR.

    They have had no depth until trade deadline and have had s*** goaltending for half the season. Point is a minus player as well. Kucherov is only +10 despite scoring over 140 points. I don't buy for one single second that he needs to be sheltered to produce. That whole team struggled for many stretches this season. Not gonna ding him over an outlier minus season. While I agree some may overrated him, I think you are underrating him. I don't see him as some saviour, but merely an addition of legit top 6 scoring on a short term deal if one were to be reached. I'd still rather sign Guentzel either way.

    Yeah. Cap space. Their depth took a huge hit, and one of the big guns have to go. Stammer is the obvious choice based on his age and contract expiring. He'd be a huge value add on a short term deal. Once again, not my number one choice. But an easy number two. If Yzerman rolls with Husso and Lyon again he should be fired. They'd be competing for WC1 with competence goaltending. I like Lyon as a backup. But Husso is not it. We need experience in that position. Legit experience, not washed up Reimer experience. Also, Markstrom would make a great mentor for Cossa. And yes, I'm not serious about Yzerman being fired for that. But it would sure be ass to roll with that tandem again haha.

    I just want to let it be known that Guentzel would be the primary target haha. I'd be fine with Stammer for 2-3 seasons as a consolation prize, if the price is right. At least Stammer can still absolutely bring it. Outside of that exception, I'd def want high end players in their 20s. I think Markstrom would be a great fit based on Cossa's timeline. We absolutely need a proven goalie this offseason. Three straight years of goaltending collapsing in the second half cannot happen again.

    Trade for Markstrom (picks/prospects + Husso) Trade for Chychrun (picks/prospects +Walman) Sign Stamkos or Guentzel Re-sign Kane Trade/Buyout Holl 8 year extensions for Seider and Raymond DeBrincat-Larkin-Raymond Kane-Compher-Stamkos/Guentzel Perron-Copp-Kasper Ras-Fischer-Fabbri Veleno Chychrun-Seider Edvinsson-Chiarot Johansson-Petry Maatta Markstrom Lyon No Berggren because I figure he would be gone in one of the trade scenarios. Chiarot has experience on the right side. Man the fort until ASP is ready. If Johansson isn't in the vision, sign a defensive dman who plays with an edge for that third pair with Petry.

    Yzerman is the one keeping NHL-ready players in the AHL. It's also not Lalonde's fault that the roster has a first pair and two 3rd pairs on defense. Don't get me started on goalies not named Lyon.

    Methot was a great partner for him because he covered for his lack of defense. Methot allowed Karlsson to fully utilize what he is good at. Offense.

    Eddog vs. Seider

    Elite dmen don't sit in the penalty box for fighting. That's an advantage for the opposing team.

    He is annoyed that he is in the final year of his contract and the team has not approached him about an extension. Detroit gets brought up as a potential trade partner because of Yzerman.

    At this point in fine with waiting until the new year to call up Edvinsson. As long as the team performs at least.

    GR getting Czarnik in the lineup has helped them a s*** load.
