    Seattle

    Vatenen has never hit 40 points in his entire NHL career. I mean, he was a 40 point dman in the AHL, so i'll give you that. It was a known bad trade at the time, and it looks even worse now. Especially considering the Ducks were well into their decline at this point and should have been hanging on to their top prospects. Marchessault scored 30 in his first full NHL season. He was only flirting with making the NHL full time before that. You make it sound as if he was some useless guy who came out with one banger of a year. Smith had a down year on a bad team. It happens. It's not the fact that they lost Smith to Vegas. It's not the fact that they lost Marchessault to Vegas. It's that they lost Smith AND Marchessault to Vegas. Florida could have done nothing and just lost one of these guys. They traded Smith to ensure they drafted Marchessault because they were afraid to lose ******* Jason Demers. Who they pretty well immediately traded for Jamie McGinn.... So please, continue to bless us all with your knowledge of how giving up Smith and Marchessault for Jamie McGinn is hindsight. Hindsight is William Karlsson coming out scoring the way he did in Vegas. Theodore, Marchessault, and Smith? Not so much.

    Anaheim traded Theodore to keep Vatanen. Let that sink in. Everyone knew Theodore's potential at the time of that trade. Not only that, they traded Vatanen that same damn season. Florida mismanaged their roster so badly that they gave up Smith AND Marchessault. Gotta imagine teams will be more aware of this type of s*** when it comes to Seattle.

    So you're literally saying Flip is our worst center at faceoffs, and we should let him do so on the first line because of that?

    Filppula and Fabbri on the top line is a great idea if we wanna see a repeat of last year's goal differential.

    One year is not an indication of a trend... Fabbri shouldn;t touch center in the top 6 at this stage. If he dominates center on the third line, try him on the second line. No sane hockey mind would ever start Fabbri as the first line center. If Larkin was not on this team, Fabbri wouldn't start as the #1 center. Glendening would play 1C at this point before Fabbri. At least he can match up against high end players defensively. And for the record, Fabbri did not have a breakout season. He simply matched his production from the season before his injuries. AKA he has finally become the player he was 4 years ago. Haven't you heard? Flip is clearly our top line winger

    You must be really fun at parties.

    Damn, that Fabbri contract sure f***ed up the Mantha deal

    NHL 21

    It sucks, but the NHL team is so small they aren't lying when they say they don't have the resources. It's an afterthought franchise after FIFA and Madden. It was the same deal the year the PS4/XBONE came out. Had to wait the following year for next gen hockey.

    NHL 21 is not getting a PS5 release sadly. NHL 22 will be the first.

    Not the worst idea at all. Bonuses to keep him motivated to perform and maintain trade value.

    Absolutely, but he has since said he'd be willing to go the one year deal route. That's when I was like f***, hope Yzerman is working some magic here. I do think he is waiting to see what happens with next season starting.

    Gotta imagine he'd be off the market by now if he was willing to take 6 million for one year. I'd offer him whatever it took if he is willing to sign. Retain half the salary at the deadline, and all is well. If any RFA or UFA points at that contract crying about their own value, it's an attempt to buy a first round pick or high end prospect +. Regardless, Hoffman for one year is likely a pipe dream as I said previously. But it would be a hell of a move for the trade deadline haul.

    If he wasn't asking for much he'd be signed by now. Clearly he wants more money than teams are willing to spend at this juncture, even at one year. So it's likely he has to come down in his asking price or he has to wait and see what GMs are willing to do once they know what next season looks like.

    Plenty of teams have shown interest. Something like 13 reported teams. Many teams can't afford to take on salary due to the uncertainty of Covid and can't afford a season without fans as is. The flat cap also restricts things for many. He had the one issue in Ottawa and there hasn't been any known issues with him since. The man wants to get paid, and that is clearly why he is willing to bet on himself on a one year deal. My guess is he gets signed when GMs have a better idea of what next season looks like. Also, maybe he simply doesn't want to go to a bottom feeder. Ever consider that?

    It was Ottawa, so who knows really. But the dude would easily be the biggest trade deadline rental on the market. I know it'll never happen, but I can dream.
