    Team needs a #3 center.

    Jordan Weal is nowhere in the realm of Marchessault.

    I'd dig it, not sure they would.

    Better throw in Chia and Manning.

    Exactly
    Marchessault had a 30 goal season in Florida
    Weal hasn’t even cracked 30 points in the NHL

    I think Khaira is very suited for the role. He isn't the most consistent yet, but he's got everything is hope for in a third line center.

    He's much better suited for the lw. Foot speed isn't there for center.

    You must be new here, it's HFOil tradition to pine for every middling player who's on waivers or available cheap and then ***** when the Oilers don't pick said player up.

    Just to be fair we should also add Lucic.

    Yep. Wouldn't be an Arizona deal if Steven and Ace weren't there talking about what a great move it is and how any day now the Coyotes will be a power house.

    No doubt Jesus Christ. The guy has been healthy scratch a bunch this year. Can you imagine what both those guys would be saying if we acquired this player? Haha the analytics community is so ridiculous.

    Michael Ferland should inject some energy into our lineup. Oh boy i miss old Kassian, and younger versions of Grier Moreau and Marchant

    He has no team anymore, BUF released him for not reporting and he agreed to be released. Leaving loads of money on the table.

    Odd situation all around which is why it smells some kind of head issue to me. That is just my speculation though.

    Chayka uses his own company analytics. I have no idea what that entails, but it has nothing to do with analytics others use. It has to do with player tracking and seems more like scouting with tallying specific plays that are still subjective.

    As for Weal, using Corsi% analytics, he's not too special. He could shine if used right in a 4th line role, but nothing amazing there stands out other than some decent possession.

    My bad, I thought they were talking about our Berglund!

    How has he been doing this season? He should still be an upgrade on the likes of Brodziak I'd imagine.

    Not even slightly. He’s one of the most overrated players in the league. He’s a 34 year old, ~25 point, 4C. We need a winger (or 5) who can actually score
