don't be so grumpy, you know you want them
Yes they just want us to pay them to take them lol.
He was given that contract because we thought we were out on ror. So army needed a reliable center so he over paid for bozak. Then at the 11th hour the buff gm called armstrong and army got ror. That's why bozak got 5.
My comment is more that someone actually thinks this is a scoop.
Most teams would be thrilled to trade an overpriced bottom 6 player for anything resembling an actual return.
Apparently Hoffman is sitting pending a trade per nhl.com
I would think if a North team was going after him it would be now with the long quarantine period
so moving two soon to be UFAS? Hoffman could be an interesting pick up
With the news that Gallagher is LTIR and that he was interested in Hoffman this summer, Montreal seems like a legit landing place for Hoffman now
My guess would be Hoffman to Montreal. Probably a conditional 2nd round pick going back.
I hope it's more especially in such a crappy draft and especially since blues will have to retain
That's a whole lot of words that mean nothing.
Cap dump who?
Pay more how much if so does a trade work for the Leafs?
Ask for retention which costs more see above...
In short as a logical Leafs fan a big NO. Even as someone who liked Bozak when he was a Leaf.. Still no.
Well, he's on a one year deal, he's 31 so it's unlikely if Montreal was interested in re-signing him that they would give him a long extension and as a player, he's more of a middle 6 winger these days especially on a team like Montreal that does have the advantage of having some degree of depth in the forward group. So a conditional 2nd (that could become a first or could end up being either Montreal's 2nd or Tampa's 2nd depending on the conditions would be my guess.
Looks like a 1st for Hoffman isn't to insane. Hoffmans stats are better.
Hoffman a healthy scratch tonight?
Supposedly being held out for potential trade
Yeah it was reported around 4pm central. Word on street is tor, mtl, bos. Are kicking tires. Mtl is front runner with Gallagher.
What would mtl offer for Hoffman and Dunn 50% retained?
He won't return a 1st. 21 points in 36 games and he brings nothing outside of scoring. Needs to be sheltered because of how bad is at at defending.
We shall see. Per peeps on hfboards allen was going to cost blues a pick to get rid of. So we shall see
1 +, Lekky & Mete. Maybe a 4th or something for good measure.
So Hoffman 50% and Dunn 50%
2021 1st and 2022 second and lek.
I think that's fair. With the second being next year.
I forgot to account for idiocy in NHL gms
That would work.
Yeah cause buf gave us ror. Dorian gifted stone to vegas. Things are just not cut and dry.
Throw lek in to balance and number of contracts.
He's actually solid at back-checking, but he's sloppy with the puck on exits/in transition. If you have a spot for him with linemates who strongly push the puck up ice, you don't have to worry much about those deficiencies.
