No problem at all with this considering the returns other forwards are grabbing
This is fine. There almost can’t be any complaints about this.
This is a steal for Maroon. A lot of Oilers fans are going to be really pissed.
I mean we gave up basically nothing so yeah how can you not like it?
Nice trade if it means Hayes is waived. I'm fearful that they might send Bratt down to AHL instead given his struggles of late
not clear why the Devils needed *another* LW
didn't he play some RW?
nothing short a steal, especially for what Nash went for.
Nice deal by Ray.
2018 2nd, Rykov, 2019 3rd, Dudek for:
I believe we're a better team then we were a few days ago. We needed some depth up front to get the Staffords and Hayes out of the lineup for good.
What's not to like depends on who else sits. If we play Maroon, Zajac, Boyle, and Stafford or Hayes with Lovejoy we are old and slow. If this results in Boyle and Stafford sitting, I'll break out a beer for the deal.
Can Maroon play RW?
Fantastic deal, basically gave up nothing. We do have a ton of LW now though lol
They wouldn’t send Zacha down. Less then zero reason to believe they would just dump Bratt
and a 6th. great deal still
They should send him down. He wont be able to hang in the playoffs if he cant hang now.
Its sad but its a growing process. Shouldnt bring him down
Devils got some added toughness along with some additional skill for next to nothing.
I was pretty worried when I saw a NCAA prospect was going along with the 3rd. Dudek is unlikely to play and NHL game so he was basically best scenario at that point.
I don't think a 6th was involved. If you read that from Gross' blog, I misread it too. He was saying Dudek was a 2014 6th rounder.
It will be nice to have another big player that can stand up for the kids
Good for Ray going after guys to bolster the depth. D prices were probably too high so he just tried banking on scoring more I guess.
people say Chia is a bad GM but look at the roster hes building in New Jersey
they're not, and justification is they traded a 4th rd pick and a scrub prospect martin gernat.
the thing is, based on production alone, he should've netted more.
The McDoughnut price was too rich for my blood
Two interesting thoughts:
- is Maroon just a product of McDavid?
- does this mean they're shutting down Mojo and need a replacement?
Still a good deal.
