    LeftWinger got a reaction from Jonas Mahonas in 2022 TDL   
    We basically got Leddy, Vrana, Ned and Cossa for Mantha and Bernier! (all while throwing around picks here and there!)

    LeftWinger got a reaction from Rick D in 2022 TDL   
    If we can get a 1st for Leddy, then I am all in. DD is not going to bring you that return, maybe a 5th. Staal has a NMC so he'd have to waive, but he still won't bring back a 3rd. Vlad would never bring that back in return either.
     
    Kane was on waivers just a week or so ago, if Yzerman didn't want him then, he isn't going to trade an asset for him. Not giving a 1st up for an expiring contract unless we were that piece away from winning a Cup. If I get a 1st for Leddy, I am using it at the draft. Edmonton will be out in the 1st round anyhow. It'll be a nice 16-20 pick. If I do trade away Leddy, and need to address the lack of vet presence, I will try to sign Lindholm instead. But again, I really don't think Leddy will bring a 1st, so if not, I would just keep him...not unless Yzerman has an agreement with him that when he acquired him he promised he'd move him to a contender. But I am not sure he would make that promise.

    The only player that is going to draw any interest is Leddy. But, again, I think we need to re-sign him. We cannot go into next season with Hronek and Oesterle as our vets on D. That would be a huge step backwards. I don't see any interest in Staal or DD, nor do I see them being re-signed. Instead of trading Leddy, then trying to fill the veteran hole over the summer, just keep him (especially if we're knocking on the playoffs door) and extend him. Replace Staal and DD with rookies and we'll still have a pretty seasoned core, especially with how good Seider is.
    Leddy - Seider
    Rookie - Hronek
    Oesterle - Lindstrom (Rookie)
    What ever the low draft pick we'd receive for Vlad is not worth it. Just keep him. I think being a home-town kid, he'll re-up on the cheap just to be part of this organIzation. I am sure he'd love to be part of the transformation into Cup contenders. Other than that I can see possibly Zadina being dealt in a Mantha-type deal like last TDL. But, as much as he is criticized, he is only 22. Same goes with Ras, but I really hope they BOTH turn it around, they are falling down the ranks on this team.

    Yes, we can do both for sure. Last year we technically sold some vets for picks and also bought Vrana (stole actually.) It can be done, especially by Yzerman!

    LeftWinger got a reaction from Jonas Mahonas in 2022 Draft / UFA   
    This off season will be one of the first ones to where I am not too worried about signing any bigger name UFA's. I am ok with addressing within ( I still think Leddy will be re-signed) along with Fabbri. I think even Namestnikov will re-sign. I am sure Yzerman will look to fill in with NHL players like he did this year, but I really don't see any bigger names.  But know this, if not in 2022, then in 2023 those bigger names might be calling Yzerman instead of the other way around. Other players around the league are taking notice of the progress this team is making.

    Am I the only one who would prefer keeping Fabbri and Namestnikov over Rasmussen and Smith?
    I know we want the draft picks, but I think the team is better with Fabbri, and Namestnikov in the bottom six.

    I love all this discussion! Maybe MODS can change the title to 2022 TDL Talk!
    This season's seems to have me hoping to make the playoffs, but also not wanting to? Make sense?
    With a few Vets available to deal, I can see Yzerman acquiring some more picks for the draft. But (even though there were rumors) we did't really expect Mantha to be dealt so I am hoping for another move like Mantha's trade. I would not be surprised at all if one of Hronek, Rasmussen or Zadina is moved. Would anyone (outside of Holland maybe) take Dekeyser off our hands? I certainly hope he is not re-signed. I also can see Leddy (unless it's a drop kick of a deal) staying here and re-signing to help carry our D kids into the future. Think about it, if DD is gone and Leddy is gone, they are gong to have who to mentor the kids? I am guessing Staal nor Stecher won't be back either. I know our prospects are great and Seider is the real deal, but I am not thinking it will be wise to go into 22-23 with all kids in the starting 6 outside of Hronek, and I am not seeing him as a mentor to any of our kids. Ouside of the kids, the only D signed after this season are Hronek and Oesterle. So unless I am getting a 1st back for Leddy, I am really focused on re-signing and hoping he wants to come back to be in our top 2 next season. Stecher is injured I know, but it just seems he cannot solidify himself in the lineup. I can honestly see him being dealt at the TDL if he's healthy.

    Clearly Rasmussen was out there to either win the draw or for D zone coverage. As soon as the puck entered Buffalo's end, he went to the bench. He was out again a shift later forth same reason. 
    Why do you think Veleno deserved to start OT? He didn't do a whole lot last night.
