I'd expect they'd be looking at 3 assets. Zibanejad, Smith, 1st

$5M 3rd line center when our D is paper thin is not a great idea in my books. Anyways it would likely cost us Turris + or Zibanejad + 1st +

I am not against bringing him here. Just think it would cost too much.

If he played wing sure. But one of Turris or O'Reilly would be wasted on the 3rd line.

Center depth is one of the most important things to have if you want to win a Stanley Cup.

I would have no issue with Ryan O'Reilly being our 3rd line center.

Do not want. Also, we don't have a lot of luck with Swiss players, see: Gerber, Martin and Wick, Roman.

Lots of negativity about Bouwmeester here. The guy is still very good, eats huge minutes and only has one year left on that contact after this one. He'll command a lot back in a trade

Pretty much. Look at the past 5 Cup winners. Each also had an excellent two-way centre.

I doubt we'll get him anyways.

Yeah he's not actually a 3rd line center though, or at least he won't be paid like one. We made our move for a young 2nd line center last year, and his name is Kyle Turris. I'd love ROR to be our 3rd line center, but I don't like the idea of paying him 4.5-5 million long term.

He cant and shouldn't play wing.

We have Turris and Spezza.

He wants a lot money.

He wont be cheap to acquire.

He wont be happy on the 3rd line.

Why waste assets on a position of strength.

There is literally no reason to get him.

Move Turris to the wing?

Turris - Spezza - Michalek
Silfverberg - Orly? - Alfredsson

I'm not saying that's what I'd give, but I expect them to ask for something like that from the off. Personally I don't think we need him, rather splash out on a scorer if we can't find one from within the system. Murray isn't going to rush this, he's going to see what he's got first.

There isn't a facepalm strong enough to emphasize how bad this comment is.

as much as i like zibby, i would offer them zibby and just leave that on the table. tell them they can call us back if things don't work out and we can negotiate from there/ i'd probably get laughed at by their gm, but if they get desperate enough, they'll know we're interested and we have a good starting point, so they'll call back.

having three great centers has been done before. it's not like they'd be starved for ice time. look at last season. spezza averaged just under 20 minutes a game. turris averaged almost 17 minutes. if we split it first line - 20, second line - 15, third line - 15, fourth line - 10, no one really misses out. it gives us a scoring line out there 50 minutes a game. if alfie comes back next season, and we shift silf to the left side, our lines could be

greening - spezza - michalek
silf - turris/o'reilly - alfie
regin/replacement - turris/o'reilly - stone
o'brien - smith - neil

we'll need to acquire one top four defenseman. a right shot, puck mover. but i think that forward group is solid. there's no harm in kicking the tires. if we can acquire a top four defenseman, i think that line-up has a shot. that is if silf can step up and start putting up points. imagine being able to give alfie a chance to win the cup and getting a really solid, young player in the process.

i dont see making a trade for him as realistic. Colorado is playing hardball with him and convinced they can wait him out rather than trade him. If they did trade him, i think they'd want too much.

The only viable option is an offersheet, and that would cost a 1st and a 3rd. If we had started the season 5-0-0 and didnt appear to have massive defensive issues, i might be comfortable with where that 1st would land, but right now i think it's too much of a burke-ian gamble.
