Damn. We should have went after Staal if he was that cheap.

Looks like David Backes going to market. STL took a run at re-signing him this morning. BOS significant interest in Backes.

 

 

C'mon Holland!

@TonyMarinaro RE if the Habs made an offer to Lucic: "Yes they did. But hearing it's come down to 2 teams Dallas or Edmonton. And he wants 6yr deal."

I'm fine without Lucic.... I'd rather have Okposo anyway for the same term/cap.

#2680647 Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

Posted by Dabura on 30 June 2016 - 03:18 PM

Nashville wins. Weber's best days are already behind him, more or less. Subban is younger and, frankly, better.

 

Poile has basically undone the Seth Jones trade -- only, he gets to keep Ryan Johansen.

 

And that, my friends, is how you GM.




#2680600 Other than Stamkos, which FA forward do you want?

Posted by krsmith17 on 30 June 2016 - 12:08 PM

Backes was only listed as a 2nd / 3rd line center / winger because Hitch likes to have a balanced top 9. Stastny is the only center that I would consider better than Backes right now, and he's also way better than anything we have right now. Backes was 2nd only to Steen in average time on ice per game. While he wouldn't light the league on fire, he can definitely handle 1st line center, and would be an upgrade over anything we have at the moment...

 

Zetterberg may be the better player at the age of 36, but that's even debatable. Regardless, Hank should be getting reduced minutes to keep him fresh and shouldn't be anywhere near that number one spot, or else he'll be burnt out by Christmas... again... Larkin isn't ready for the number one spot yet, and could use a year or two as our number two center to prepare himself to take over that position in the near future...

You must be thinking of 2009 Weber...

This.

 

If Weber were several years younger, and about to enter his prime - this it would be a pretty equal trade IMO.




#2680170 Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

Posted by joesuffP on 29 June 2016 - 03:21 PM

Subban > Weber

In today's NHL guys like Burns, Buff and PK are the most important players in the league

Weber's great but I don't think he's even a top 10 defenseman in the league anymore. The games changed away from his style

Posted by Wings10 on 29 June 2016 - 03:20 PM

I would rather Have Subban

There's no way you choose Okposo and Backes over Stamkos. We have more than enough depth throughout the entire lineup. You know what we lack? Elite level talent. There is only one elite level player that will hit free agency, quite possibly the best player (taking into account age) that has ever hit free agency, including pre-salary cap... You don't pass that up for two depth players...

If Stamkos signs elsewhere, then we look at other options, but you don't pass on a player of his calibre... for depth...

Devils looking for some scoring and put defenseman Damon Severson in play. Jump all over this Kenny!
