I wouldnt trade Z or Pav because when you trade players of that caliber, you never get your value back in the trade (the team trading the star i mean). That is why i think you can capitalize on it. And Geno wont get 10 on the open market, not with the way the cap when down this year, and possibly can the following year. I would expect 8.5 tops for him for the cap hit.
all i keep hearing is,"dont trade away our future for this guy." What you guys dont understand is that he could be our future. Hes got 10 years left in him, and for the KHL flight worryers, its basically been proven that the best players in the world want to play here. The NHL is still the premier league. Period.
Youre telling me that we would never recover from parting with smith or nyquist and a couple of first round picks? Picks that could end up being busts anyway. Youre recieving a MVP player. The scorer weve been waiting for. How much better could that get? What player could we get via trade or free agency that would be better?
Not saying he wants to come here, or that theyll even trade him, but how could you not want this guy if available?f****** crazy asses, I need to buy some pot from some of you.
To all the people who believe this OP quote, did anybody think the Isles belonged on the ice with the Pens after game 1? They ended up taking it to 6. This is the parity filled NHL now, though its very possible we lose the series, its not that crazy to think that we can pull out a win or 2.
Blues can def afford to lose for us too. Still not impossible to jump to 6th. That would give us Nucks first round which ill take all day. Maybe Ducks would be better matchup though. Their goaltending is rough.
The way we've been playinG...I don't trust us to take a single game against any team in the league in a best-of-seven.
Thats probably a little harsh. Actually really harsh. Were not playing bad, we just cant score (Not scoring does not mean playing bad btw). We outshot Van by 30 and lost in a shootout which luckily we dont have to worry about in the playoffs. You could def say we couldnt win a series which i wouldnt argue, but we would win a single game for sure no matter who we play.
