So Lebrun said he sees Panarin in Nashville & Duchene to Winnipeg
No, he said those were his "personal best fits".
Nashville should keep signing more players because their window to win a cup is getting much smaller every year.
They should definitely go after a goalie that they can rely on in the playoffs
The window is wide open. The oldest player in the core is Subban at 29. Preds are going to be contenders for many years to come barring injuries.
Rinne/Saros is probably the best goaltending duo in the NHL. Saros’s performance this year has eased my concerns about his long term future. The kid is legit. He could be our #1 right now. Goaltending is fine.
The scariest part about facing you guys in the playoffs is if:
A) you get Panarin.
B) if Rinne falters you throw Saros in.
There's no way it's already 5PM in Winnipeg right?
Rinne being 36 and not being reliable for you guys in the playoffs should be a huge concern.
Nashville should keep their eyes open for a legit replacement for Rinne.
You're not very familiar with the team in Nashville are you?
This is what logical fans are fighting for. The only 2 twists would be Bob declining the move and someone flat out overpaying for Panarin basically forcing that trade.
I don't blame CBJ fans for not wanting trade Panarin. It's similar to Nashville not trading Suter in 2012. The teams are around the same caliber. Neither was a huge threat to win the cup but getting rid of their best player essentially tanks the rest of your season. I don't know how a GM could look his team in the eye and make a move like this.
The team knows they're in a tough spot and if he got a player back that could play now, they'd understand. They'd be like awww we can't stay mad at you Jarmo
Except for the part where suter told Poile he would resign
I'm not saying the situations are exactly the same. I'm saying they were similar.
If I were the Blue Jackets I'd push for Saros. Need to get Bob's replacement with Panarin. And Panarins replacement by trading Bob.
For a player who is leaving in 3 months?? No
His value sunk when he said he's testing the market.
Saros is going nowhere. We might be comfortable trading Saros for Carter Hart or Carter Hart +, but that's about it. We're certainly not trading him for a UFA that will only sign in big coastal cities.
We're 8-0-2 against the Lightning the past 5 years including 2-0 this year, both games without Arvidsson.[/QUOTE]
I think it would be a great series and agree Nashville doesn’t need Panerin to win it.
That said if you watched the two games this season you do realize Pekka Rene stole them both. And no Vassy @ Nashville.
Yes, yes and yes.
No, need offense, more than enough in goalie pipeline
Are any ready to be an NHL starter? Legit question, I don't know.
Korpi probably, have multiple guys that can come share the work load. Korpi has been better than Bob for long parts of the season.
Yes, elvis is entering the building
After the recent agent change it looks like Bob and Panarin are going to be a package deal. So if you don’t have plans on signing both you shouldn’t pay anything more than season end rental value for Panarin
Most teams shouldn't pay more than that anyways.
