Free Agency Frenzy or Fizzle

The whole Duchene story is Sakic wants more than anybody wants to give.  There are about 5 possible suitors for this trade.  Canes fans want to trade Fleury/Bean and something and Sakic wants more.

 

Spin in it however you want to, but this is, and has been the story since the trade deadline.  The whole story in 3 sentences.

If the team gives up a top-4 defenseman and then some in the future I hope the return is better than a Duchene.  I'd rather go after Tavares or somebody of that mold.  Keep an eye on the Checkers this year because there's ammo in the chest down there to get a better deal done down the road.  Also a year from now we might have 5 top-4 defenseman, ya never know the way lady luck has blessed the D.

Tavares for Hani and a 1st.  I would do this one if I were GM!  Maybe just Hani since the contact is only 1 year for Tavares.  I would add if he resigns stipulations on the deal.

Tavares will go for more right now.  

 

We wont be able to afford Tavares and our current roster players in 2 years. Talking 8.6 + AAV for Tavares.  

 

On Duchene:

I see GMRF's point of night trading for a 2 year center for a potential top pair defender. If there was a season to do it, its this one.  LV only has 12 defenders on the roster still and plenty with short contracts.  So we could find a good replacement fairy cheap.  If GMRF brought in Kruger to allow JS to play more offense, then we'll probably just play with the current roster.  Im not overly confident in Ryan's ability as a full season center.  

 

Tatar?  He said if he doesn't get a contract he us looking for, he'll take the arbitration and become a free agent in 2018.  A smaller wing but has scored more goals in the last 3 seasons than Eberle.  A mcginn, McKeown, and winger prospect trade if we get to agree to a contract first.  Would force Lindholm back to center but he could be a solid pickup. He would be hard to afford in 2 years but easier than Tavares. 6 years 6-6.5 AAV.

I'm not sure what happened since I've been off the board a few days, but the final edit as it reads above is hilarious.  Thanks for the laugh!  Getting a trade discussion down to one punctuation mark is quite an accomplishment.

I'm not positive, but I don't think that series of posts was what the mods were referring to.  Unless maybe my post of "Y?" was interpreted as referring to coastal's post of "No" directly above it (the "Y?" was actually directed at Sakic). 

 

Oh, and good on ya; I don't know if there's anything that could make me laugh at 5 frickin am. :P

I would like Jagr to come here.  For the record, if I were GM I would do it.

 

Skinner-Rask-Williams

Aho-Staal-Lindy

Stemp-TT-Jagr

 

That's a nasty top 9.  Tt and Lindy as interchangeable centers.  I don't care if he is slow.  He would cause a production in scoring.  I know it's not going to happen.  However,  that move would fill up our stadium.  This being a legit good business decision.

 

Thank God I am not GM though.  Am I right?

I would be OK signing him to a 1-year deal and see what happens.  Its not like people are beating down his doors, so I bet he could be had for cheap.  If he can still help us and put butts in seats, why not?  I think the latter would happen, but the former is a question especially considering the speed at which we play.
