This. Eberle and a 1st gets a huge package, not the crap being offered here. Think either a franchise d-man and a something else or a big, productive 2nd line center and a below franchise but still first pair d-man. Some of these offers are in the ballpark for Eberle OR the first, not both.
MacTavish said that it was unlikely that any of these kids are moved unless its a substantial return. We`re not selling low here. So if anyone wants Eberle, stop with the offers that include your second best d-man and bits and pieces. Unless that 2nd d-man is amazing, ha ha. For Eberle AND the 1st, we`d need a guy like OEL, Pietro, Subban, Doughty, etc. coming back as part of the deal.
The issue isn't value, it is those guys aren't available. The package should bring back those players, but none of those teams have someone to replace them.
Eberle is a top line forward without doubt, but all teams have top line forwards. What they don't have is multiple top pairing guys. Great package, but for the blues to trade Shatty or Pei, we would need a replacement and a center.
Weber hasn't even been that great this season. Talk about overpay. That would completely destroy our team. You're asking for Two 1st Overall players, a high level young dman, and a top 5 pick in a pretty hyped draft. That's insane.
Yes he has, the Nashville Predators are the ones that haven't been playing well this year. Take out the first and that's what it'll cost. The thread is Eberle + 1st.
Yakupov would bring in so much more than Eberle, and although Yakupov probably winds up being the better player I think they'd be better served trading him to address their needs. They could bring in a huge piece with Yakupov and another key guy with that first. Trading Eberle when he's slumping after signing that huge contract is the wrong move IMO.
Playing injured ...broken finger can do that to your shooting . He will be back as good as ever
Alzner is washingtons number 1 shut down defenseman... Brouwer is a perfect 3rd line role player your club needs desperately and our 1st which will likely be 20-25th
So you move down 10 places say in the draft.. Gain a solid defenseman who would be a stand out beside Justin Schultz and a 3rd line role player who is a stud for Washington and has more goals on the season ( this season than eberle )
I would jump on this deal in an instant, WAS pick will be high but those are two players that will make our team better as they are the type of players we need.
Eberle & the first for captian Dion... There's your top pairing D man and a home town boy too boot. Only way TO does this is if it looks like dion wants out/won't resign to decent numbers
Not interested in Dion, I always thought he was over rated and is still over rated. Seen him get beat too many times down the wing. He will fight of course as long as he knows the guy he is going to fight is smaller than he is.
