but yea tbh id just rather keep patches and give up a player like beaulieu and a pick for kuli
Again, with 5+ years left on his deal at 5.5 mil and playing mediocre hockey, I don't want Myers even if he was free. His downside is bigger than his upside.

Not sure why anybody would entertain trading our best forward on a great contract for a Gomez-like contract.
