  1. The difference is that they are learning how to play a style that suits their skill set while losing so that they can learn how to win eventually as opposed to trying to play a style that is beyond their skill set while losing and NEVER being able to win.

    2019 Trade Deadline

    Agreed. Trades and buyouts are also a solution. And even if Kronwall returns, there are always injuries within the D corp. Hronek and Cholowski will almost certainly be on the roster next year. What I don't want to see is 20 something players who can be re-signed traded for picks unnecessarily. Guys like Goose and Jensen are the kind of guys we should be supplementing the roster with along with the kids. When guys like Kronner, E, TD, Vanek, Wit, Green, Helm are gone they'll have to be replaced by somebody. There arent enough kids in the system to fill all of those spots when they become available. We could go the free agency rout then and fill those holes (and likely pay more or get lesser players) or we could just keep just enough of the right guys now by re-signing them. I think the idea that rebuilding means trading as many guys as you can to acquire as many picks as you can is oversimplifying the process. The draft isn't a fixall. You cant solve every problem thru it. You have to trade the right guys, sign the right free agents, re-sign the right guys, draft the right guys. That's how you rebuild. I know you understand this, but it seems like there is a fire sale mentality out there that we should trade everyone who was born before Mantha. That's just silly. Obviously, we shouldn't lose any of Nyquist, Howard, or Jensen for nothing. And if they can't be re-signed, then yes, they should be traded. But I would be trying to re-sign Howard to a 2-3 year deal, Nyquist to a 4 year deal, and Jensen to a 3. We're already getting a lottery pick this year and have 2 2nd rounders. It wouldnt be a crushing blow if KH didnt add to that considering any of the picks acquired will most likely never be as good as those 3 anyway. Keep em. Make them our future vets. Bottom line for me is that this isn't the year to swap players for picks. That's next year when Green, E, and Daley are all up and the following year when Helm and Glenny are up.

    If you can't re-sign him, then yes, get something for him. But unless it's an overpayment, I don't do it unless I know he's leaving. My point was that Holland should be looking to re-sign him first and foremost, and not go into full blown fire sale mode. Then you re-sign Jensen and deal with the overloaded roster for one year when Green, Daley, and E contracts are up. Letting a relatively young, solid, RH, puck moving dman go during a rebuild when you have 3 pending aged UFA dman next season is poor roster management IMO.

    How is this news?

    You just gave us the reasons why Holland should re-sign him instead of trade him.

    He's a bust. You just proved it.

    Why? He's not keeping anyone off the roster who should be there. Try to trade him next season or let him play out his contract. I see no benefit in a buyout and taking on a needless cap hit. Why not just re-sign him? The idea that you trade everyone you can during a rebuild to stockpile draft picks is overblown. You trade away guys who are too old to contribute post-rebuild, yes. You trade away pending UFAs that you don't want to re-sign, yes. But Jensen is a solid depth dman who shoots right and is the right age to carry thru a rebuild. Trading him for spare change makes no sense IMO.

    If you hate Pierre McGuire last night was almost your night...

    Never understood all the dislike for some of the commentators. I will watch whoever is doing it. Just mute them and watch the game as it was intended if you dont like them.
  10. Correct. You cant coach a team to play a way they lack the skill to play.

    With a year left on his deal yet, I dont see too much interest. Maybe next TDL

    Then why didnt you just say that you don't think Zadina will be as good as people think based on what you've seen. That would have been fine. But you had to start a flame war by calling him a bust. That's what KRS is calling you out for. And he's right to do so.
