Given the choice between overpaying Brunner due to a bidding war(as it appears Brunner wants to test the market) or Alfie in this instance I pick Alfie.

 

But if you are asking me do we trade a pick for Alfie or draft Sequin, Hall, Stamkos, etc...

I take the draft pick.

See I am not assigning my logic to all situations, I use logic based on the individual circumstance.

 

I know that may seem weird to some, but I actually look at each transaction as a one off situation, there is no fix all tool.

 

 

Edit: This is response to Dirty Dangle, the gap between our posts was bigger than I thought it would be!

I guess Detroit needed a little something to instantly rekindle a rivalry with the Leafs  :)

 

And they can add to that if we get Grabo haha

Brunner is easily worth 3 million a season, Kenny MUST sign him. MUST. He is THAT good.

I absolutely hate this signing! Grrrrr! I hope he proves me wrong!

I hear you. It's not that I don't want Alfie as a Wing, I love that idea, even as an old Alfie. But this isn't 2002, there are consequences for every signing. I hate this signing for what it means for our other activity.

Y'know what? I kinda like this. Really, I do. Kinda.

 

But only if there are other deals in the pipeline and we're not letting Flip and Brunner go just so we can have a Holy Trinity of Over-the-Hillers in Alfredsson-Bertuzzi-Samuelsson.

 

And, seriously, if Alfie's in, Danny Boy needs to be out.


Don't Toews me, bro!

Dallas makes a ton of sense for Cleary. They just traded for a young player, he is best friends with Horcoff who was just traded there, and there is familiarity with Jim Nill.

I loved Cleary and wish him the best, but I hope he moves on from the Wings.

Watching some Alfie clips, it's pretty refreshing to see a player that attacks the net, and goes for one timers alot. Please put him on a line with Z and D, if they sign Grabo or Weiss.

Those picks could busted easily. You are using hindsight. You could trade the first overall pick for a current top nhl player instead just like taking alfie over a young unproven brunner.

OK, I would rather pick Seth Jones than sign Alfie, but would rather sign Alfie than get in a bidding war over Brunner.

 

Better?

Ok to each his own.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

No surprise, Bruins have been informed their ``out'' on Alfredsson. B's lose out to Detroit.
