Think you'd have a hard time prying him from them without giving up something detrimental. I think he'd be a great addition but the question still remains how much you'd be willing to give up. Most I would sacrifice for him is 70 + 77 and maybe a smaller piece like a low draft pick or someone like Stenlund, and I don't think they'd bite on that
They have $40 mil in cap space next year and there’s a bevy of more proven UFA goaltenders. They’ll buy one instead
Give him a little more time, he'll get there for sure
Let me rephrase it a little: barring injury or character concerns, will he have more or less than 30 points over 82 games?
So long as we don't draw from 3 or 8 or give up Bjork I'd be open to it
He'd probably go for something like: 18 - 77 - 70 - 1st. I'd be ok with that
How about that time where we literally killed a child. Feel like that takes precedence over everything
What do you think said OMG deal might look like?
You’re probably right about it too, I’m curious to see what it yields, even though I strongly suspect the Jackets will be just sitting tight, even though I don’t necessarily think we should
If that's the only reason they'd part with Vrana they're not gonna do it. His contract is way too good.
I find that strange about Bertuzzi - my impression was that he was good but not great
What about Tyler Bertuzzi or Jakub Vrana?
Isn’t he an RFA at the end of his contract?
Look I like Gus but he is not a first line winger
I don’t like them honestly
He'd be a godsend, but my guess is they'd ask for 8 or 3 in return. I also think it'd be hard to match cap with what we have to offer, and we'd probably need to
Nevermind, found it
Go with Geoff's kid. Not only is there a cool little legacy thing going on (which is something we've never had) but late 1st round is always a crapshoot anyway. Judging by our prospect pool we're only gonna get first line talent in Marchenko (god willing) or a trade. Might as well start stacking the trade pieces
1) Why Allen? From the statlines I thought he was doing better than Binnington this season
2) I would love it if he went for that little, but I find it highly unlikely that that would be enough to move him, even if they were trying to clear cap to accommodate Pietrangelo. If I'm them I'm not getting out of bed for anything less than a 1st rounder for him
Schwartz of Schenn, preferably Schenn but they just extended him so probably not gonna happen
There's also a couple of good LW's on the Blues I forgot to mention now that I think about it, but I'd imagine it'd be difficult to pry to them unfortunately
