    I hear that one one end by then I heard rumors about what the teams were offering and it feels like we're getting low-balled.

    He definitely had one of the best +/- on the team.

    Turnip head probably went for the jugular and failed .

    The RMD trade was what I was expecting , or a decent top 6 and a first rounder .

    The Lucic type was a home run at that time but the optics have changed for vets near UFA .

    My issue is we waited 1 year too late for a better return .

    It`s one thing hanging on a vet like JVR and letting him walk when the Leafs had a legit chance of winning the division .

    67 had no bearing on our success and we were not winning squat with our without him .

    Totally poor asset management on our part , knowing this day was coming of pay up or shut up .

    Still a bit weird, even with a year left he should normally have plenty of value but there is plenty of options this summer so this is a buyer market. He might have to hold on to Max until the deadline but that's risky too because if we're close to the playoffs, he will probably hold on to him.

    We've screwed-up banking-in on almost every high value player we've had....all the way back to Patrick Roy: Koivu, Kovalev, Souray, Radulov, Markov....and now, we will not get a decent return on a perennial 30-35 goal scorer.

    If Molson/Bergevin knew all along they weren't going to extend Max for 8 years, don't hold on to him, just trade him already. We should have pulled the deal this past season

    I might be the only one, but I think MaxPac will get re-signed.

    (That is not what I would do, but alas, I'm not the one making decisions).

    If I was going to trade him, I'd try to get a top-13 pick this year. Retain half the salary if necessary.
    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.

    They can certainly afford to eat half his salary, both in terms of cap and real cash.

    There is rumors his agent is talking to LA about contract stuff. I was not expecting a D in return although we do need one badly to play with Weber. Who would we have left to get a
    C???
