    2024 Offseason Thread

    Please no. Zegras would get killed in the playoffs. I would much rather have Kasper in that lineup spot and have Danielson being the Zegras of our future.

    Offersheeting Broberg

    I get it man, but still, you poke the nest and down the road you get poked back when Danielson and others get offersheeted just under the amount to give up any real compensation yet enough to force us to make a decision we don't want to make. As a team that's on the way up with an above average prospect pool, this strategy could really hurt us in the end IMO.

    Great question. I haven't seen near enough of this kid to comment. So here's my comment. (insert laugh track here) If I'm the Jets would I settle for Mazur and Wallinder in return? If I'm Detroit would I pay that, when Mazur is exactly what we want in McGroarty?

    Interesting read on No Tax States

    This 2018 article didn't answer all my questions, expecially in regards (don't go there) to federal and state income tax rates. https://www.ontheforecheck.com/legally-speaking-why-state-income-tax-doesnt-matter-to-free-agents/

    Offersheeting Broberg

    I don't know. If GM's are all basically former players then here's my view. Players are highly competetive, that plus talent equals an NHL player. Highly competitive people who become GM's don't drop the gloves without respecting future negative outcomes. You want your GM to take a measured approach when dealing with his peers as the last thing your want is a target on your back. If the Oil are going to be in trouble signing Broberg next year then just offer up a 1st and a 3rd and see if they accept. If they don't, then drop the gloves with an offer sheet.....lol Fence sitting or what?

    Wouldn't offering 4.5 AAV only cost us a 2nd? Could the Oil match that? Probably not

    I'd like to see Kasper in the middle of those guys as they played pretty well together in GRapids. Maybe to start the 25/26 season.

    Matt Savoie for Ryan McLeod

    Should we have been in on this? I think the Oil get the better of this deal. McFast with size but timid vs Savoie, Marner like skill maybe but often injured.

    Return of the Zadina

    Or Z could turn into an 80 pt guy playing with Celebrini. Oh wait. Even SJ wasn't fooled.

    Matt Savoie for Ryan McLeod

    I'm not sure who Buffalo would have accepted in return from the Wings, or even if we wanted another small forward. If Savoie turned into a DCat then that would be worth it. Buffalo is really dumb and Savoie saves the Oil money.

    The YzerSCAM

    Meh. Flawed logic from a dink of a writer. Steve Simmons is a weiner and that's why he writes for the Sun, an ink stained trash poodle of puss.

    All the more power to Kelly. Figure out your contract to reflect/protect your family dynamic. I can't blame her at all.

    Domi 4/15m I would have done that, but I guess the Make Be Leafs are getting a hometown discount.

    2024 Offseason Thread

    You make valid points. I guess Jake will know that Tampa really flocking wants him, enough to spend a 3rd for his time.

    2024 Offseason Thread

    What I mean is why make the trade? It's a waste of a 3rd if Guentzel doesn't sign and goes to FA Jake is signing for 7 years max no matter where he plays, other than Carolina, and there's no guarantee for Tampa that he won't just go to FA tomorrow and pick his best deal

    2024 Offseason Thread

    Anyone know why Tampa would spit up a 3rd rounder for the negotiating rights to Guentzel? Come July 1st he could still listen to all offers couldn't he?

    I guess I would just prefer guys like Zadorov, Pesce and Domi.

    2024 Draft

    Just the NHL rules for not signing a 1st rounder. MLB if you don't sign a 1st rounder, the next year you get to pick one spot later as compensation. I guess the NHL wants to protect teams that are dumb.... lol

    Rumors Thread

    I hope not. What is Stamkos, Kane or Trouba really going to add? I'm hoping we go after anyone that plays a 200' game and is ornery. I'd rather see AJo, Kasper, Mazur and Berggren getting their feet wet this year before Cossa starts his domination tour.

    2024 Draft

    Flyers got a comp 2nd rounder for not signing their 1st rounder from a few years ago. I think they picked him at 19 and now a few years later get the 51st (?), so every pick is one position later.

    And Jeannot to Kings for way less than they originally paid to acquire him.
