both frattin and kadri are perfect examples on how to develop young prospects. schenn was rushed and his development was hurt.

hope the leafs are patient with rielly

Should we trade a couple of our top young players for basically no reason at all? No.

It's a ****ing disease.

No cure so far. Seems contagious, but some people are resistant.

We acquired him after a horrible season. It was the season before that.

But I don't think RO'R would bomb, he's just a 2nd line center. People are getting chubbies over his age and potential.

Personally. I'm not a fan of Pure snipers and Hate hearing about the "Trade". I'm Sure he hears/heard about it a lot.
Why I think we will be traded eventually (this season or next). We know he isn't comfortable with the large media presence. He is a valuable asset but something we don't really need. look at our team right now. We are getting offence from Kadri, JVR, Frattin, Grabo, Lupul and our D.

Why Nyquist? Why not? We are not going to get the same return we gave up. Look at what Nash got. Nyquist is a talented playmaking LW. Wouldn't he look good beside Grabo who is more shoot first? Why not try to build a scoring line instead of just getting picks?

Why Detroit? Aging Core. They need young high skill to replace Aging Vets soon to be retiring. Slightly closer to Phills home.

I think it makes sense.

Also Kinda Stopped playing NHL 13. That game needs some work ;p

What would we trade them for? A late first, then have to wait another 3 years till that first rounder plays in the NHL.
worse: imagine if kadri was traded prior to the season and him tearing it up for the canucks

NOt exactly. Raycroft had alrady lost his job in Boston.

It would be like EDM offersheeting Penner after he had a 29g season.

I am so tired of getting burnt on our 1sts, I don't want to trade one unless we're getting another one back.

Exceptions made for elite players. But for the next few years no trading our #1 pick.

The thing about O'Reilly is that he's only 21 and is at least a proven #2 C with great defensive abilities.

He's still a prospect essentially. He's younger than Kadri, Colborne, Frattin, Gardiner, etc...

He would fit in perfectly with this group.

I don't get why some people don't understand that our first line gets burned a lot because there is zero defensive awareness. We don't need a flashy playmaker for Phil, we need a two-way centre that can contribute at both ends of the ice. And no, not Bozak. Bozak isn't strong defensively.

But yeah I agree with you, he is AT LEAST a #2C.

100% agreed. Guys like O'Reilly seldom become available. Our team lacks talent overall and any time you get a chance to upgrade in that department you do it, despite what we have right now. We suck because of what we currently have.

You realize its fans like you that make everyone hate us right? Phil Kessel is arguably a top ten player in the world, and a top three right winger. Let that sink in for a moment, look at who his center is now.. Tyler Bozak, a third line center. Then look at his age, he's 25, 2-3 years away from his prime and he has scored thirty goals four years in a row. You are so bipolar, and should stop making threads because everyone just bashes you in them. It's been six games into the season and crazy fans, such as yourself are ready to deal Kessel (top player in the world) to let Matt Frattin and Nazem Kadri play on the first line.. Neither have played a full season of NHL hockey, so that is just pathetic. Look at the rest of the NHL, not everyone is picking up their game right away, give them some time. I assume you think Washington should deal Ovechkin too? After all, Kessel is outscoring him and Mike Ribeiro + Joel Ward are outscoring him too, I think Washington should trade Ovechkin for a 1st and roll with this as a top line:

Chimera - Ribeiro - Ward

No Schenn just isn't that good, nothing to do with rushing him or not.

Mystery Player:

HEIGHT: 5' 11"
WEIGHT: 177
Drafted after the first round.
Started out as a defensive specialist.
Played with a lot of heart, in the beginning was known more for his "intangibles" than his skating or hands.

Age 20: 80 25 28 53 6
Age 21: 78 21 36 57 3

Anyone care to guess? Sounds a lot like Ryan O'Reilly to me.

Kadri was available as a 21yr old. Blake Wheeler. Kessel. Hodgson. Kassian. Gardiner.

Do I need to continue? Lots of good players can be had in their early 20's.
