    This is silly. You're telling me that McDavid is the best ever because he scores a lot (but doesn't win) on mediocre teams?
    He has no records, he has no championships. He just scores. Cool.
    Fine, I'll play along. Forget Edmonton and forget winning. Gretzky's five best seasons with Los Angeles were SO MUCH better than McDavid's five best with Edmonton. If scoring on bad teams makes you the best player ever then Gretzky IS STILL better than McDavid by your own metric.
    The only thing McDavid does better than Gretzky is skate. He's a better athlete, I'll give you that. In every other conceivable metric he's less accomplished.

    I never cease to be amazed by this whiz kid. He's doing the same thing he did in Toronto, but with players that are 12 years older. What a brilliant hockey mind.

    Obviously a lot depends on the TDL.
     
    If NJ gets Markstrom, then I can see them playing with the confidence that we now enjoy.
    If Tampa Bay gets Hanafin I can see them winning at a better rate than they are now.

    I guess I'm just kinda wondering what the plan is here.
    Larkin right now is probably the best he's going to be.
    Seider and Raymond have become leaders and this is the last time you'll have them on ELCs.
    Lyon feels a bit like lightning in a bottle; he could fall off next season and then we'd be boned in net.
    If we're waiting for the next wave of prospects to establish themselves as impact players, we're probably gonna be waiting another two or three or more years.
    Edvinsson's probably gonna be RealGud at some point, but I dunno that he's a serious impact NHLer now or even next season.
    I'm happy that Kasper's playing better of late, but I dunno that he's an impact NHLer next season or even the season after that.
    Danielson probably spends at least a year in the AHL.
    ASP's got a long way to go, I fear.
    Soderblom's starting to feel like a 7th-round pick.
    Berggren seems to be on his way out.
    Mazur...is pretty good...in the AHL...when he's not hurt...?
    So...what's the score? Where we at? Are we waiting for Seider to learn how to play 50 minutes a night? Are we waiting on a big fish in free agency?
    I'm not even asking for any blockbuster moves. I just want winning to be rewarded. If we're still in a wildcard spot at the end of the month, I think the worst thing you could do to this team is tell them: "Well, this was never really gonna be a big push year for us anyway, because we've got prospects coming and that means we have to wait a bit longer, because what we're working towards is having a team that's got some depth to it. And the D group I put together was really more just kind of a treading water kinda thing, because we've got some prospects coming."
    Don't mortgage the future. But if it really does look like we're headed for a best-of-seven with Boston/Florida/NYR, let's invest in ruining that franchise's season.

    Chair Rot just showed why he'll be invaluable in the playoffs by burying Zary in front of the net.

    town123 reacted to Troy McClure in 2024 TDL Thread   
    So it's:
    To CGY: Duclair
    To SJS: 3rd + (50% of Hanafin)
    To CGY: Berggren + 1st
    To DET: Hanafin (at 50%)
    To SJS: Husso + 1st
    To DET: Kahkonen
    Why it makes no sense IMO: Both CGY and DET have no reason to seek a 3rd party to retain on Hanafin. Husso and a 1st for Kahkonen is beyond steep. CGY has no reason to acquire Duclair. Hanafin with an extension in place will cost DET more than a 1st and Berggren.

    Our goaltending situation has gone from a complete mess to a good starter, an ok back up, and 2 prospects less than 4 years away.

    Anybody see the Toronto/Ottawa debacle last night? Oh it was sweet. A couple of things, 1) If I'm Toronto's management I'm not mad at all at Morgan Reilly for attacking this kid. You have to. But he 100% deserves a suspension. 2) We need to trade for Ridly Greig right now. The absolute balls on this kid to do that to Toronto cannot be overstated.

    This is where Yzerman has to be savvy.  There are teams out there that are going to be willing to give up good capital at the end of this month.  And if we can trade guys away for top 32 picks, then we have to be ready to do it.  Perron, Chiarot, and Gost should all be available to highest bidder.
