I'd happily miss out on Stamkos if we sign Boedker, Radulov and Okposo. Then all we need is to trade for a Centerman for line 1 or 2 and we're contenders.
Sign three guys and pay them more than what Stamkos could score on his own. I seriously don't understand not wanting a bonafide superstar on this team Imagine thinking having Okoposo as the centerpiece to your offense will take you anywhere in the playoffs. Great complimentary scorer but the wings are trying to build a new core Having a team full of 15-20 goal scorers is how you never score in the playoffs
K I'm all aboard the holland hype train but let's not forget that if we drafted chychurin would have been a great pick at our placement... Dumping salary for what? That was the easy part. Going forward is the defining moment for the offseason Omg I wish hypothetical trades dreamed up by members weren't allowed to be posted. Why would coyotes just trade hanzal without any reasoning behind it and why would he trade for our midgets. News flash! Nobody is looking to get smaller in today's NHL... Tatar scores around 30 but teams rather take a 15-20 goal scorer over 6 feet all day long
Management will choose Nyquist over Tatar. Salary shouldn't come into question because Tatar will be signing an identical deal to Nyquists next year anyways
Tatar scored slightly more with lesser line mates for like one half season... Other than that he was playing with Dats who was better than Hank. Not to mention Nyquist has scored more over his career than Tatar so I don't know where these facts are coming from Isn't Tatar not scoring on the PP kind of a bad thing and not a knock on Nyquist who is a good PP player. Strange logic
We're a slick puck moving dman away from being able to play a different style of game. Lose Quincey, buyout Ericsson, give Smith a larger role and possibly add a good offensive defensemen and this is a different style of team
