    Miss MJ on zone entries but for the most part Kuzy has taken that role to another level and does it better than anyone not named McDavid. My issue with the trade is that I thought he was worth more than we got for him and it seemed like just another part of screwing up last offseason (aka losing Schmidt).

    MJ was overpaid. I don't know if he was worth much more. If it was 3,5M instead of 4,5 maybe I'd prefer him to Bura right now. Maybe. But Stephenson for food could be even better. At least Caps have picks.

    Panarin level guy is what our top-6 needs instead of Ovi (in ES). Maybe Kuzy can convince him to sign here but they have to unload Oshie first. Oh, this conversation is endless.

    Datsyuk just signed with SKA today. Sorry, your master plan doesn't work anymore :/

    Oh I know, let's trade a bag of pucks to the Pens for Geno!

    I think a Forsberg type of guy would fit in even better though :naughty:

    I don't know if he deserved to win, but the fact Carlson didn't even get top 3 is pretty ridiculous.

    If we are to believe that we went hard after Karlsson at the deadline, then wouldn't it make sense that GMBM will have another crack at him at the draft ? And then of course, let Carlson walk for nothing. Maybe we can pick up a 4th for Carlson's rights. Erik will cost significant assets to obtain.

    John is gonna get paid around $7-8m, Erik will cost around $10m to resign. John is 1 year older surprisingly. Both will want max term deals.

    What is the package going to Ottawa ? Depending on the answer there, John would need to take a home town discount for me to choose that direction. $50m for 8 and not much more.

    Voters got it right. Neither Carlson, Burns or Klinberg are very good at their actual job, defending, and at least Burns and Klingberg drive possession.

    And there is ZERO chance he plays for that money, even on a max deal, and he shouldn't. He should get the maximum he can as this is his set up he and his family for life deal. Personally I think he ends up in Jersey.

    Carlson can easily ask for 7,5M x 8. Would be nice to sign him for 7M x 8 but why would he leave 4M on the table?

    0,5M is significant but not that much with a 80+ cap.

    It's like 0,6% of the cap, right? I dont care then.

    I didn't think he would get in the top 3. A lot if good dmen this year. And the top 3 have the reputation. Hedman and Doughty are great 2way defence men. Subban is good but he is a bit if a flake. Makes alot of bonehead plays. Seth Jones, Jossi and Pietrangelo also had good seasons. And offensively Burns and Klingberg were solid

    After watching this series I guess the forward group won't be changed much in offseason.

    Ovi - Kuzy - Wilson(+$)
    Vrana - Nicky - Oshie
    Bura(?) - Eller - Connolly
    Stephenson - Beagle(-$) - DSP
    Gersich, Boyd

    DSP proved he's good soldier. Stephenson too. Beagle in playoffs surely is effective one too and I guess he would make a little discount (he's not young anymore).

    Connolly is rather cheap for the 3rd scoring line, he's average but doing clutch things from time to time. Bura showed some potential and there's little chance some team will pay much for him so why trade him yet?

    And with that said why would the team sign Chiasson again? He's 13th forward. No need to I think.
