Maybe both will have better luck with a new team.
That's the impression I'm getting too. The forecaster.ca scouting report does at least suggest that Machacek is a good cultural fit.

Also, he seems potentially more NHL-ready than Kubalik right now. Kubalik wasn't exactly lighting the world on fire anymore...

Kind of "meh" here. Not great, not bad.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
