    No you don’t . Build up his value and trade him for a top pairing defence man . Why lower the value on an assets ? RNH + Klefbom + Smith for a D and a goalie .

    OEL + Goalie + Winger

    He was 2PPG in the play-ins

    What you're saying is the extension of what I'm trying to point out. He's a complimentary player. But even a complimentary player still have to get paid. If he continue that kind of production playing with McDavid, 7M is a steal of a contract regardless of how we view him.

    So wait. because for a 4 game sample amongt a close to ten year career hes PPG, that means he's legit an over PPG player to you? C'mon. that is so incredibly short sample and you know it.

    PPG playing Drai and Yamo. Not sure how much sample you need. He’s a first line winger who needs a line driver to get the best of him. Like I said he’s a 55 point player on his own. With PP time and McDrai he’s closer to ppg if not more

    more than 20 games, let me tell you. Plus those games occurred at RNH hot segment (he has one of these every season) and the players got rests from the ASG break as well as the mandated week off. it was perfect timing to click. Nuge doesn't play hot for long, and 20 games is a long stretch for him being hot. it only happened last year because of all the breaks being right in that segment.

    nor is Nuge a 55pt player on his own. Hes had seasons where he had trouble getting there.

    This is the same argument everyone uses against Draisaitl.

    You expecting Nuge to be a 55 point player with 2 archibalds on his line or even worse?

    Skilled players, playing with other skilled players, do better, this isn't rocket science.
