Might be a good target for the Flyers who badly need to replace Niskanen.
Id like Mantha as Habs fan.. something around Danault(extended) and a 1rst maybe
I wonder if danault extended to Calgary in a package for monohan is possible . There would need to be other parts to make salary work but maybe something like monohan for danault extended plus lehkonen , poehling and a second round pick .
Tough because it’s possible we could potentially just sign Danault for free this off-season and not risk giving up Money, but I do really like Danault (and Lehkonen is solid too) so I’d at least consider the deal. Might rather move Monahan for a different piece and just target Danault hard in the summer tho
Interesting proposal, Monahan and Danault are basically at opposite ends of the center spectrum, one is full attack (what MTL could definitely use), the other is full defense. Not sure what the add from MTL would need to be given the contract situation. If CGY is fine with Danault + Lekhonen + Chiarot (3rd pairing or fringe 2nd pairing Dman able to take a spot in the top 4 if an injury comes up, I'd value him at 2nd in the current context, taking Green as comp), to accomodate the 6.4m from Monahan, I think that could be fine from MTL point of view. However, I have seen on other trade discussions that most CGY fans value him higher, so I don't think there would be an unanimous agreement between fan bases.
The issue is that in my opinion, it does not matter which player you bring on board, you still have Julien & co on the bench.
I agree . Julien has got to go in my mind . Muller took over in the bubble and changed them . Need fresher trains of thought .
I am not sure Muller has the solution but at least he tried something else than the stereotypical dump and chase that Julien has been imposing on every line. The best example in my mind is KK : I was really high on KK from the start( I watch Skan Hockey) because he was a tremendous playmaker with the ability to create holes in the defense by coming from the wing into the center and feed his teammates, instead now he plays a physical game close to the boards trying to dump and chase. Drouin for all his flaws, is a tremendous skater, he should be able to create space, but no let us dump and make him fight against stronget Dman...
Actually he is right. Larsson has been a beast.
He sucked for like 4 games. Now he is the Larsson of 2016-17
I think health and not being used properly. For awhile Blashill was using him as a net front guy and not taking advantage of his shot. I love the guy but it would be fun to watch him there
A swap involving William Nylander and Esa Lindell.
New schemes and thought processes are not his forte . Toffoli will stay on that line now forever . Prior to armia’s injury that line was really starting to click . He has a perfect time now to throw the lines in a blender because no body is scoring . Danault has been given enough time to produce. 6 assists should tell him what his role should be . By not accepting a 3c role he’s not helping the team .
McCann for Virtanen is an easy yes for Vancouver
Boston but no overpayment.......
A year ago I’d have been all over that. But Jost has busted out as an elite defensive forward and PK specialist. I’m still thinking about it. Playoff Bennett is enticing.
Jost is just 22 and based off his improvements and hard working attitude, feels like he’ll keep improving. He’ll sure put in the work and it’s now paying off. He and Graves were incredible killing a long 5 vs 3 against Vegas with 1 goal lead in the 3rd period. That’s a huge moment in a must win game. These are the flashes you look for as a fan and as an organization. Jost is now giving them to the team that drafted him.
Ya Bennett for Jost would be one of those deals where the value is there but both teams will hesitate cause of the potential both guys still show at times. I think I do it though
Ya the issue for me is that we could potentially sign Danault this off-season and not give up our scoring top-6 C which is a big price to pay. Lehkonen and Chiarot aren’t enough to make it worth it IMO. But it’s definitely interesting. Danault extended+Armia for Monahan?
Not even Virtanen wants Virtanen right now.
He's bound for the local fire hall.
I think Danault extended makes a lot of sense indeed but at how much, if rumors that he refused 5m AAV are true, would you be ready to pay 6m AAV for him ? I think MTL would rather depart from Lekhonen than Armia, just because Byron is basically an overpaid Lekhonen MTL cannot dump But how would you deal with the cap issue from MTL POV, I thought about including Chiarot in the deal for that purpose (not sure what his value is in this market)
PS if you have Danault I think you want to slot him either on the third line as you do or on the first line, because Tkachuk Gaudreau can generate offense, while Danault is a very efficient possession game player (as shown over the past two years)
Feel like the Rangers try and redo the Zibanejad trade by trading Zibanejad to a win-now team for a newer model. Screaming Montreal.
The problem with trading Sam Bennett from a flames perspective is that right now, the teams needs are a player has potential to change momentum during his shifts, either by making a play, throwing a big check, or a fight. Right now, that is Sam Bennett.
Compher for Bennett, you get a RW RHS that Calgary seems to always be looking for.
We could give the Flames Turris & Neal for free, just to help them out a bit cuz they need a shake up. It’s what any good neighbour would do
Funny what a contract year can do to a player...
Pretty much everyone on the Ducks roster.
Rakell is someone who would probably quickly rediscover his goal scoring ability with a change of scenery.
