Agreed. How many bad-decent prospects would it take?

Giroux's buddy is on pace for 82 goals next season. The real question should be, what's Detroit adding to that deal?

Haha. I wonder if something like that was actually offered how a GM would react. Ten second round picks is a lot of second round picks...

Islanders offered their entire draft for Murray and it got turned down. Not the same as 10 second rounders but still pretty hilarious.

I always pictured Jester sitting in front of a crackling fire, sipping a glass of Glenlivet, sharpening his hatchet.


By the way, what sort of gauge is the other guy using for Columbus being worse defensively than the Flyers this year? Shots allowed?

Bill Meltzer recently wrote that he wouldn't be surprised if they use Gagne as more of a last resort type of option. For example, Holmer going after who he really wants, then if that doesn't pan out going for Gags. This makes sense to me. As personally, I am not as gung-ho on him being back as some of you.

If he's cheap he's the perfect bottom 6 forward. He still plays good defense, great speed and he can chip in goals.

I just read this article on Couts offense and thought it was pretty good. A fair bit of statistics suggesting him playing with better linemates would lead to much higher output. Many of you seem quite resistant to this suggestion.

Comparing him to most other bottom six forwards, he would be very expensive. That is assuming he gets something like 2.25-2.75m. Also, anything more than a 1 year deal might be a stretch.

Well of course that's too expensive, I'd only resign him if it was for a reasonable value to comparable forwards available.

This seems like as good a time as any for my daily "Don't trade Couturier."

Don't trade Couturier.

This article basically sums up how I feel about having Voracek on a line with Giroux. Having those two together makes the game easier for each other but they are clearly our two best forwards with the abilities to make their linemates better.

If you establish couturier or schenn as our 2nd line center than Vorabeast has to be on that line to help the young centers out. He is capable of being the driving force behind a solid 2nd line. Voracek's presence is also why im an advocate of getting a play making winger in the draft like Shinkaruk because of just how valuable these players are to 2 way centers like Couturier .

I've been too lazy to get an avatar here, but now I would like one that's a picture of Couturier with "Don't trade me, bro!" written on the bottom.
