    There's apparently value in success. Who knew?

    I think both will get extended. Ladd is a core player in Winnipeg, I'd sign him LOOONNGGGG before Byfuglien.

    Ericksson, Boston can't afford having him walk with all the talent that has left the last 2-3 years...trading him as a rental would be career suicide for Sweeney.

    Stamkos is a very interesting case. Either the Lightning give up a lot to resign him or he's gone. Would not be surprised at all to see him in Toronto next year.

    I would love to see Okposo in Montreal. He would fit in perfectly. "Dale Weiss with actual talent"

    I could see Eriksson wanting out of Boston since he was mostly used as a 3rd liner there and the team will most likely not be in the playoffs this year.

    Ladd, as you said is more likely to stay for the Jets.

    These two would be my priority if I was MB all the other FA are not as interesting

    A bit harsh, no?

    Okposo only has 5 more points than Weise who has 4 more goals. And let's not forget that Okposo plays with Tavares.

    Weise has a decent shot, good wheels, and a decent sense for passing.

    How does he have no talent?

    Because I base my appreciation on what I see, not just stats, and history. Weise could very well only score 5 more goals till the end of the season. And Okposo wasn't playing RW with Tavares to start the season; Strome was, until he was sent down.

    Just wow. you really think Weise has as much talent as Okposo? Really?

    Well, if you think Weise has as much talent as Okposo, then I guess both your eyes are shut. :)

    Ok. My mistake, I think, for having wrote "Weise with acutal talent" while I was thinking "Weise with more talent".

    Basically, I was comparing the two because they have kinda the same set of attributes and same strenghts at around the same "proportions", only Okposo's are at a higher level.

    I'd resign Dale Weise and Tomas Fleischmann if he keeps his pace and sign Jagr. That's about it. The overpayment will be huge this summer. Maybe Jason Demers to replace Gilbert too.

    I keep telling Leaf fans Stamkos will actually sign in Montreal...

    - he wants to win
    - he wants to play centre
    - he is friends with Subban

    I don't really think he will but it's fun to see their faces...nothing like an in person troll...

    A couple of trades and we could make it happen.

    I'd be sad to see Stamkos leave Tampa though. He basically is the franchise over there and if they lose him they'll lose a ton of fans and maybe the franchise.

    Stamkos would cost WAY too much for what he is now. He's not the same player since his injury and on the market he'd probably get at least 8 millions for at least 6 years. No thanks.

    Yeah I don't really think there's a great fit in Monteal anyway. Ironically, he'd be more of a fit if he wanted to play RW than C but we don't have the cap space and don't really have a great spot for him.

    I just like the scenario because these Leaf fans have this insane hope that he'll come to Toronto which would be their dream, and then I say he's coming to Montreal and make it sound halfway plausible and it just ruins their day.

    If he does go to Toronto it just proves he's not someone we'd want. He should stay in TB because he wants to win and why would he want to go to a basement dweller that he no chance of contending for many years. And why would he care about playing C vs RW. He should want to WIN.
