  1. Gonna be a long season. Easy to get frustrated and understandably. No speculation in this thread, just some fun arm chair GM stuff. Feel free to chime in. While the season isn't lost I'm okay with packing it in. Keep Carlyle until end of season and start fresh with a new coach. I'm okay with this just for the mere fact that past the twins and Rakell we simply do not have first line talent. We can retool for one season and start contending. So my wish list for the season is as follows; Have cogliano waive is NMC and get a third round that we don't have and free up salary. Offload Eaves for a 4-5th round and clear up more salary. Combined you're already looking at approx 7.5m off the books and a little bit in change with Fistric's 450k coming off after this season That's enough to land someone like Nylander. Asking price is unknown but surely less approaching the deadline. So I'll take a stab with; Manson+Ritchie+2nd for Nylander. Manson as Toronto needs D plain and simple. Ritchie to offset some of the offense for Toronto and a decent pick to sweeten the deal. I'll get flak for sure but a Manson loss is easier to obtain than a first line talent and an easier pill to swallow with the potential return. Manson's salary gives some wiggle room to sign Silfverberg (almost 9m) with Silfv being the only UFA that needs to be signed. And come off season we have an opportunity to select high for the first time since lindholm. With expansion looming, any loss won't be as significant and twin salaries coming off the books ready for our RFA's Not as easy as written but thinking out loud. Any opinions?
  2. Also to note, manson is no longer on ir according to Eric Stephens ?‍♂️
  3. Don't know who we'd be getting in return or what we'll do with a freed up salary but I'd rather lose cogs. Silf would be a great role model for someone like Jones
  4. I'm still living in 2008.. Toronto can't be good lol
  5. Haha! Or show him how the old Boys club works. Would be a weird looking conversation from the outside lol
  6. Highly likely, I have no doubt he's done his due diligence and at bare minimum asked if Nylander could be signed or for an asking price. Maybe he's there for Vegas? Hard to tell, he keeps those cards closed. Hell he could have been talking to a prospective coach for next season for all we know. Just an interesting thought he made a trip, opposed to picking up the phone with a back to back
  7. Ducks are in LA while GMBM is in Toronto. Several news articles state that there will be a trade of some sort before RC goes. Is he kicking the tyres? Thoughts?
  8. I don't see Perry going anywhere without getz but if he were, he might accept a trade to Vegas so it's still close but that's pure speculation. But if he was guaranteed a prime destination like Pittsburgh he might otherwise the only option for him be Toronto who already has an aging star. Long story short he's in Anaheim to stay I guess. But in a perfect world, we could land kessel in a 3 way trade and Perry becomes the new kunitz for Crosby and a third party eats a bit of salary and gets a prospect and picks haha ?
  9. My thoughts too.. But I can see tavares liking the atmosphere with high end talent on the cusp and two high end centres with getlaf and henrique (could play wing with rakell or kase but I would love to see silf with tavares to elevate offense). In the process the ducks can eliminate one hindering contract and off load someone due for a new contract and can afford to part with a 1st with gaining a superstar in the process that's strong on both sides of the puck Its a nice thought haha
  10. Pipe dream but I'd be fine if islanders would take Kesler+Ritchie+conditional 1st for a stab at tavares. Allows them to get a high draft pick if Kesler is out for the year and gives them a #2 pivot to remain relevant for a retool/rebuild. And if tavares re-signs with ducks, a transition from the getz area becomes bearable with rakell and Steele in the fold. Ducks remain competitive. Pipe dream but summer time leaves plenty to be thought
  11. To be fair, all but Hagelin produced in a duck sweater
  12. I still don't see them going further than the east finals. They're a fast team, that's an environment where most players with wheels can thrive/contribute especially younger players. Until they start playing more contenders and the bigger teams in the West, I wouldn't be too worried
  13. Good on him, it would be cool to see a rookie put up those numbers consistently. It's been a number years we've seen a rookie put up high numbers
  14. I have a funny feeling he's going to end up in Arizona. Some up an coming talent, regular play time and relatively close to home AND a divisional rival. But mostly because with the younger talent on the roster, it's less about physical grinding play than it would be for the Kings and I think Etem could improve in their system
  15. Apparently took a discount to be a bruin. Pulls a Bobby Orr then gets a B on his chest. Good year goes to head. So much for wanting to be a duck. But good on him
