    Considering or not, he better not be re-signed next summer.

    Zetterberg & Fedorov VS Yzerman and Datsyuk

    No, I'm talking 120 point Fedorov and 97 point Datsyuk. Fedorov was not in his prime when he played with Datsyuk. Datsyuk was a 3rd liner when Fedorov left. So, no, neither were in their primes.

    Imagine if we had Feds and Dats both at their prime.

    2019 Draft

    If we cannot get Jack Hughes, absolutely we could use this guy! I think that the order I prefer is of those 5 is: Hughes, Broberg, Kakko, Cozens, Podkolzin. Going to be real interesting to see how things change by June! But if we fall between 5-10 again, Alex Newhook would be a great choice!

    ...and? He'll be 29 before this season starts IN OCTOBER, then he'll be 30 before next season starts IN OCTOBER 2019, which is what I said. Test your math 2019-1989? Ya, equals 30. PLUS the term "hometown discount" doesn't only apply to players born in the area, it is, a lot of times applied to players that were drafted by a team, brought up through their system and still play for the team when they become a UFA. Lidstrom gave us hometown discounts all the time.

    Good on him. I'm paying my Franchise player, current #1 center and future Captain $6.1M, there is no way in snowville that I am giving Nyquist anywhere near $5M. Using that logic, Mantha should be at $4.8M and AA at $3.3M, Helm should have to give money back.

    Plus he'll be 30 at the start of next season. $5M, nah....pass. Forget the whole idea I brought up.

    Nyquist has been paid handsomely and hasn't really earned it. Factoring in a "hometown" discount, I don't think $3.5M is too little. Kids get paid after they prove it. This is not the Edmonton Oilers. In no way is $3.5M peanuts. But if some team wants to give a player $5M who can barely score 20 goals, then more power to them. No thank you here. Nyquist at $3.5M Good, Nyquist at $5M Bowel Inducing. Loose ones at that!

    Unfortunately Cap is unavailable... Honestly though, using the Pro LTIR mode at capfriendly.com, if we were to assign Z to LTIR along with Franzen, have Rasmussen and Zadina on the roster, we'd have $2.9M available in cap space. First you keep Zadina and Rasmussen, then you LTIR Z first, THEN Franzen. Yes it matters, so in that order only will it work. Would Toby sign here for $2.5M? Guess it would beat $0.0M!

    After trading Nyquist at this seasons TDL, I can actually see Holland re-upping Gus in the summer, at a reduced rate for sure. Would you be ok with Nyquist for a round $3M-$3.5M for a couple of seasons to help the rebuild along? I guess I'd be ok with it as long as Vanek, Kronwall and Howard are not back. I like Vanek, and he may get near 30 this season, but at some point we ARE going to have to go with a few more kids. Especially if we luck into a top 5 pick*. I do see Holland re-upping Witko to act as the #13/14 forward, that is fine as well. *Again here is Craig Button's top 5 early picks for 2019 draft. ANY of which would make us better! 1. Jack Hughes electrifying and dynamic player … has ability to be a difference-maker … very elusive … attacks lanes … always a step ahead … plays smart, ISS Hockey 2017 2. Dylan Cozens https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/north/yukon-cozens-hockey-gold-medal-hlinka-gretzky-1.4784191 3. Philip Broberg He has exceptional skating ability and exceptional command of the game in every single regard, Craig Button - TSN 2018 4. Kappo Kakko https://www.nhl.com/news/kaapo-kakko-top-european-prospect-for-2019-nhl-draft/c-299637312 5. Vasili Podkolzin He’s a complete winger with all the qualities that you want in a player, Craig Button - TSN 2018

    Besides, this just give Bouchard a better chance of making the Oil. Plus there are a few other D-Men out there that are still UFA that could come in for $1M or so to shore up their D. A few of which are better options than what we have.
