    And as I was alluding to, they can move some pieces around and get by for next season. After next they get a ton of breathing room.

    It is no easy task, but it is not impossible.

    I value sandpaper a lot, but really?

    A 60-70 point winger versus an 80-90 point center is no contest in my mind.

    I love Kreider, but, if he's needed to be moved to bring in Tkachuk, well, bye Chris.

    I’m going to laugh at the Sens if they keep Pageau without a contract.

    Because he is really competitive and wants to prove to himself that he's not done

    I'd do filthy, Tony DeAngelo + related things to get him here. With this draft the offense would more than likely be set for the next 5+ years.

    A ton of breathing room, this guy doesn't understand you have to re-sign other young players :laugh:

    More like a 70-80 point winger vs 80-90 pt center. Tkachuk's additional stuff makes him the more attractive player for me, Eichel can have the 10 extra points.

    Man, I'd love to have any one of the Tkachuk brothers or Eichel on this team. Much more so than, say, Nylander. Doubt any of them are on the move any time soon, however.

    Speaking of those guys, go check out their pics on hockeydb. Eichel looks like he could be another Tkachuk.

    I really think Eichel has more to give. He’s playing on a perennial horrible team.

    I’d be totally fine with either but the main difference for me would be Eichel’s contract length left is better. I’ll take the player with term

    That's a very nice way to call Eichel ugly.

    Imagine Eichel with Panarin on his wing?

    Feel like that’s something we should be planning to have the flexibility for now, eh?

    Like maybe not lock ourselves into a decreasing value asset with a NTC, and instead parlay him into two or three cost controlled, cheap assets that will rise in value, that can be moved? Eh? EH?

    Sorry - but can someone catch me up? Where did all this Tkachuk talk come from?

    I'm saying he has similar bone structure/features. I make no value judgments. :)

    Nowhere.

    Just that Flames may make some moves but nothing ever mentioned Tkachuk aside from speculation from posters here.

    F it, let’s go for the playoffs, it’s a good stepping stone and learning experience for this team:

    - Resign Krieder (meaning that Skjei or Strome are goners in offseason), make him C
    - trade Fast for a 2nd even if we flip a 5th or something (hurts us for playoffs but at this point would rather give time to others to see what they bring)
    - trade Georgie and Lias if value is there for young C or futures, even as combo or revisit in off season
    - off load Smith even at 50% by adding an asset

    even if we get waxed in playoffs or come up short making every game important, the experience should rub off going forward to more glorious days

    My God imagine Zbad, Eichel and Chytil down the middle.

    Assuming itd cost ADA, Miller/Kravstov and their 2020 #1 at a minimum.

    Well the actual report was that the Flames were willing to discuss big names.

    To me that sounded more like Gaudreau/Giordano than Tkachuk or Monahan but I could be wrong.

    I think Chytil is part of that package too

    Great, Tkachuk rumor out of nowhere. So 2 more roster threads before evening.

    If a big name was available in Calgary, it would be Gaudreau before Tkachuk. Chucky won't be pried away with DeAngelo. It'll be a disgusting ransom.

    I don't think the combo would work that well TBH. Both guys like to carry and hang onto the puck.
