    Default Rumours, Innuendos and Flat out B.S.: 2017-18 Edition

    Bobby Mac on Canes:

    “There’s one guy on the team that they’re not prepared to trade – Sebastian Aho,” indicated McKenzie. “Everybody else – everybody else – is available. Skinner, you name it… Skinner is getting moved, I would think…

    “… Everybody except for Aho (is available). I think Faulk is very much in play, I think Skinner is very much in play.”

    So Vegas traded a 1st-2nd-3rd rounder for Tatar....but Max can't get anything ?

    Max outscored Tatar every year....

    Tatar is locked up for 3 years and 2 years younger .

    Max is better sure ...... but younger and signed is a huge difference than 1 year removed from UFA at 31

    What is Max worth with 3 years to go at 4.5 ?

    A 35 goals scorer for one year at $4.5 should have pretty decent value. Once again, Lucic is a good comparable.

    Exactly, I don't know who believes he doesn't.

    Consistent 30 goal scorer who had an off year.

    At best we get that , Lucic as shit as he is had the name value recognition .

    I still say " No playoff Max " affects our value.

    His value is deflated as he’s only a year from UFA status.

    He’d have more value if he was signed beyond next season.

    I'm afraid that name recognition was giving Lucic an edge, as crazy as it might be. Max has been one of the very best goal scorer in the league for many years now. Teams are trying to rip us off.

    He is 3x better but who cares if teams see him as a playoff flop or other " soft " issues .

    Your worth what teams are willing to pay . That 1 year prior to UFA is the dagger for a better return.

    Plus the optics have changed big time . Teams are going younger and players are producing much sooner .

    The appetite to acquire 30+ year olds as UFA`s has waned .

    Sure it gave ML an edge . For years there was no one like him in the game .

    Players like him should be given 2-3 year deals not big term .

    Darren Dreger states this morning that he's talked to some of Tavares' entourage, and the message he got was that Tavares doesn't see MTL as a good fit for him.


    I can't see why Tavares would pick MTL over Vegas for example....

    JTcannot say that they would be a good fit either. So this means nothing...

    San Jose would be a great fit for Tavares, for what it's worth...
    Elite goaltending will hide a lot of a bad team's flaws and make them look a lot better than they truly are. That's why Carey Price is the single most important player to his team in the NHL.
