    So, negotiating now considered holding out? Sounds to me like someone needs to be held.

    I have absolutely no problem with attaining defensemen through Free Agency and I certainly have no problem with Trevor Daley or Mike Green. (BOTH of whom were signed without giving up assets. BOTH of whom I LIKE.) I won't discuss the shortcomings/strengths of either of these players because it's been done so ad nauseam, but I think most of us (at least the smart ones) can attest to the fact that these guys are not our current, nor future TOP GUY defensemen. They're veteran placeholders. They're good at what they do and service the needs of the team. Without them we've got even bigger holes on the back end. Granted, I, like many other LGWers (and hockey fans in general) do have a penchant for latching onto (debatable) HYPE! defensemen and over-valuing and over-evaluating their worth. We covet them like we might covet our neighbor's wife. We put together CRAZY trade packages or suggest things like OFFER SHEETING them. We know we can't have them but we NEED them. ...and that's the thing. We do need them. Unlike our neighbor's wife, these guys should be attainable. We just have to make the right move. ...and sure, I know that there's plenty of other factors including other suitors, wanting to play somewhere else, a better chance to win, etc. all those things factor in ... ...but for every Bogo, Wiz, Pitkanen ... there is a Yandle or Niskanen or Bouwmeester or an example for today and not yesteryear... say... Trouba... That if we went out and got right now, RIGHT FREAKING NOW, would be a much bigger, impactful, etc player for this team both now and in the future than Mike Green or Trevor Daley or whatever stop gap vet you wanna put in there. Also. Speaking of overrated. Drake. *sheesh*

    Concise? Nah, but I'm efficient if nothing else. Edler's more of a Magic: The Gathering type guy. Doesn't fit into the mix. ...I sure can pick 'em, huh? Maybe I should just stfu about these guys and we could actually land one of them?

    Yeah. That could be it. More than likely is that I'm an idiot who hasn't really been paying that much attention. I'm the one panning Jack ******* Hughes. Winnipeg is ******* themselves by not being legit with these negotiations. Trouba may not be a $7million defenseman, but they need to stop picking (that is not the word I typed) him around. I'm always here for that... See Bogo discussions, Tyler Myers, and that Swede that was with the Sabres forever and then signed a million dollar deal with the Pens. ...I'm always on some potential free agent defenseman that isn't all what he is hyped to be. It's my M.O. Are you guys fast forwarding into the future? x4 speed. x8 times speed. x16 times... I noted in my first post that I wasn't sure if Trouba filed or the team. It was all hypothetical. I also stated that there was no way an offer sheet was going to happen EVEN IF IT WAS POSSIBLE. He's at my house. We're playing Dungeons and Dragons along with Pitkanen, Brewer, Kaberle, Bieksa, Wiz, and the aforementioned Ehrhoff.

    Wait. Hughes is a CENTER. Well f*** me sideways. I thought we were all getting lined up for the next generational american defensemen. Next thing you're going to tell me is that he isn't even american. JFC. Who cares then!!?? Centers?? We already got 'em no? Don't other GMs hate dealing with Holland anyway? Who cares!

    First off, I do not believe in any way, shape or form that Ken Holland would throw an offer sheet Trouba's way. (I almost feel guilty even bringing it up because it's such a ridiculous position to take. Offer Sheets. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.) ...but yes, if th'Peg have had it with Trouba and his "demands" and they wanna take a shot at JackieBoy ala the "pray Detroit sucks" route. Fine by me. I understand we need to build through the draft, which is why it's ridiculous to even think of an Offer Sheet. ...but I'm still sticking by the idea that we're not gonna get that first over all pick. ...and even if we do... I'm not putting money on Jack Hughes being the savior to our blue line. How long until Jack Hughes is NHL ready? Maybe Trouba gets a one year deal and then we offer sheet him? ...or maybe we're just patient and get him at Free Agency?

    I don't think there's anyway we get Trouba. Sure, $4 million seems lowball and they've had their differences when it comes to contracts... but I'll go ahead and say he's worth every penny of that $7million. Easy. He did ask for a trade before agreeing to his last contract, so another rough outing for them in arbitration may not be great for the relationship... However Trouba is their future. If they don't see that... I dunno. I don't believe there's anyway they're letting him get away. ...and if they eff it up? Man, they've screwed up. Dream Scenario: If Z is truly LITR-ing it this year and if Winnipeg elected to take him to arbitration -- I'm unsure if they elected or he elected. Anyway... let's say he's able to be offer-sheeted, I'd give him an offer sheet for $7 million for four years. If the Jets match it (which they would.) ...it gets him his money, but it gets him into UFA. Lets him know we want him. You're courting him in advance. You've let a Michigan kid know that you really truly want him. IF Winnipeg doesn't match, a first, second, and third in a deep draft certainly hurts. ...but you've got a sure-fire defenseman that you can truly build around for years to come. No #HalfAssinItForHughes necessary.
