  1. Zucker? no thx, too old and 6 mio for 5 years... we have 6 mio next season from Perry.... Risto would be a good addition. we have some players i would trade.... Shore, Henrique, Rakell, Lindholm, RItchie...
  2. yes, for Getzlaf its waste of time, but you must see what is the best for the team, not for an (even when he was fantastic) player who will be retired in years. he can give some things these prospects on their way... we now ride over 15 years on Getz/Perry, sometime everything ends and the half of them ended already... its not said that we don't can reach the playoffs with the prospects! Comtois (ok only 10 games) had a good stint and has leadership quality (Captain of Canada). Jones had some nice games, a really power forward. Kase if he isn't always is injured, will be nice (a 7th rounder!!!), Lundeström I liked how he controlled the puck and Zegras.... he should be our next elite player. Steel should also make his way. on Terry I not without doubt, he still looks like a 15 years old kid with 21, not enough muscle...
  3. some times you must make a rebuild... you can't be every year in the playoffs!!! and better give the young players ice time in the NHL then a Deslauriers, Martinsen ect. in 5-10 years (some of this players have star-potential) you can say, hey I saw this player since he started in the NHL, I saw they grown up.... I don't understand why some people here always wants playoffs, playoffs, playoffs....you can't always win! its an other think if you team is only bad... we have some potential players, it will be fun to watch the next years, how they grow up, they are leader of the team in the future! I hope we will play with 5-6 prospects... Zegras/Comtois think we will have a lot of fun with duo... a fan is also there in weak years! not only with good weather...
  4. Why it should be a frustrated season this season? We should see a lot of talents with Kase, Terry, Steel, Jones, Comtois, Lundeström and maybe Zegras at the end of the season. So I love to see hove they grow up and make steps forward.
  5. not forget for the next season (2020-2021) Perry's buyout jump to 6 Mio... so its okay when we have some space...
  6. Chris Wideman signed one-year two-way with the Ducks, 700k... here is your RHD..... a Journeyman... last season 3 teams... never a good sign...
  7. I don’t believe that a 27 years old sign with the Ducks for playing at the AHL... it not make many sense...
  8. Pietilla, Deslauriers and Martinsen in front of Ritchie? no way! Ritchie is still young. even Shore is behind him. Rakell, Comtois and Jones are in front of him. so he's a 4th liner. but because of the ED, I would trade Shore & Ritchie. okay, because of the ED I would trade a lot of players but this is an old story:)
  9. Stars shopping Honka... RHD.... sign. you need at least 3-4 years, look at Buffalo and Arizona, I think, this year both can make the playoffs... but you must have 2-3 elite players (not goalie) to be a contender... look at CHI (Toews, Kane, Hossa) or PIT (Crosby, Malkin, Hossa), they dominated the last 10 years...PIT never missed the playoffs without C&M...
  10. Stars are shopping Honka... he is a RHD....
  11. I mean 3-4 years. if we can pick 1-2 other elite players in the next 3 seasons, it would be great.... for what you want every year make the playoffs? what you get with that? I would rather go down and win the cup again... as Wilds... every year playoffs and 1st round out (in last 7 seasons 6 times in playoffs, 2 series won)... no I definitely not want that! every year the hope and every year disappointment... ok with Bruce Boudreau no wonder... he's a good regular season coach, but playoffs miserable...
  12. to take a slot from a junior? no thx. better go after some depth in the defense for SD!
  13. its not wrong to be a couple years at the bottom of the league and take elite players like Zegras with high picks. you can't every year be a contender! you need some time down... and I think its better go down, take some eliite players with the high draft pick as always a playoff team, not really a chance to win it all and waste the time of some players like Zegras and Gibson...
  14. Henrique is overpaid, almost 6 mio is around 2-3 mio too much... at Worlds I was disappointed of him. and Silfverberg is a lot better then he is, shooting, defensive work.... I like the move, we need depth and MDZ isn't one for many years, so the young defender have a little more time to be a NHLer
  15. I never wrote it in stone. I only wrote 7 players and the rest on the unprotected list. the problem is, who you don't want protected from the other 7? Silfverberg? Rakell? Kase? one of the 3 junior guy? or Getzy? I don't want lose Lundeström and Henrique as Guhle or Larsson for nothing. and Sprong/Ritchie are both still young, Ritchie had his best season...
  16. oh yes... too long or too short... either you fire him after the first losing streak or you wait till the end of the season because of the draft position. I don't think a big trade is nessesary. wait till after the ED. I would like to trade some Picks till then. so you don't lose a good player at the ED. at the moment we lose a good player from the offense.... Rakell, Getzlaf, Terry, Steel, Jones, Kase, Silfverberg you can protect... Henrique, Sprong, Ritchie, Lundestrom not (if they would the first 7 protect)... also in the defense you can't protect Guhle, Larsson... that could give us 5-6 first rounder for this players.... or we lose one of them for nothing...
  17. Labanc 1 mio 1 year… what a steal… he could have easy 4 mio...
  18. what he wants? what they offered him?
  19. you can sell more jerseys and some shop stuff in the big market... and as I said, 3x 3% are in the top 3... what is mathematically the chance for that, 0.1% or lower? Colorado had 50% to take a top 3... but they not wanted there a top 3 beside young players like Rantanen, MacKinnon, Landeskog... they have already some superstars. Rangers not, Chicago has some superstars, but they are all over 30, they need new market for sell shop stuff.. btw. Pittsburgh was almost bankrupt... then came Crosby... I know, its speculative, but its not a think worth?!
  20. Kings I had also on the radar. They are top 3 next season with Detroit too. I think the top pick goes to one of these two. Mtl also always high because canadian team too. Look the last years, Oilers how much they won the lottery? 3-4 times... Thats (almost) not possible mathematically. Arizona and Canucks lost every year some places. How mathematically can in the last 3-4 years comes a 10+ spot in the top 3?! (Caro, Philly, Chicago) They have about 2-3%! Realistic, how that can be possible in 3 consecutive seasons?
  21. that would be my plan, trade all for high picks, take a true rebuild and claim some players like you did it in the last week (depth players) till the ED... let's trade all except 7 offense, 3 defense players and Gibson you want go to the future! something like this: Offense: Steel, Jones, Terry, Silfverberg, Kase, Lundestrom and Getzlaf or Rakell or Sprong (Comtois is exempt) Defense: Larsson or Mahura, Guhle and one of the top 3. with the other two you can of course take a first rounder... Goalie: Gibson I know its difficult to choose, but what brings you a player you must give away for nothing? and an other Theodore I don't want!
  22. we never win a faked Draft-Lottery... I said it before the Lottery: COL would be the 4th pick and CHI would be a top 3, I had also Rangers (DET and MTL) on the board.... ... CHI, NJ and NYR have all a big market....
  23. Lundestrom I hope not... I liked what I saw from him last season, very good technic. but we don't watched a lot of these three, not make an other Shea Theodore... I would other guys trade.. 2-3 on the offense I don't like very much and at least a top 3 defender.
  24. Why give a pick? There are nobody on the Free agency for this job???
