    How do we unload Okposo and his contract?

    Agree with this statement as clearly talent is the problem. I was responding to the poster who was impressed by the fact the Okposa was 3rd on the team in hits. Unfortunately devoid of talent for 6 million a year...

    This is indicative of an extremely wimpy team. Besides Ristolainen and Bogo, is there anyone else who hits?

    I like Okposo for his leadership and character unfortunately he seems reluctant to go to the net. He is not much of a physical presence despite his size. He plays a soft perimeter game.

    Very reasonable approach, but assuming JBot wants some additional scoring to supplement big 3, its definitely a problem but the Seattle expansion draft would be another option to dump the contract but we would have to give up assets.

    How much do people want Duchenne as our #2 center? if you think he is very good, he certainly fills a major need. To sign him and Skinner would require moving Okposo. Would you trade with Ottawa now for an extended Duchenne (assume 7yr 49) for Okposa, Guhle and a number 1? Feel free to make modifications that you think Ottawa would accept.
  6. I would love to see the Sabres extend Skinner and sign Matt Duchenne in free agency. To do this they would have to free up some cap space. What would we have to give someone like Arizona to take Okposa? I'm thinking Ghule and a first round pick.

    I don't think JBOTS moves any of the first round picks. I also don't think he has any interest in adding any veterans older than 30 with significant contracts, unless we can rid ourselves of the contracts of Okposa or Sobotka. Unfortunately Casey Mittlestaat is going to take a few years to develop..

    No one wants Toews salary. Thats why they would have to take cap dumps like Okposa and Sobotka to make the deal work.

    Had Kane not had his few off the ice incidents, and had Bogo been healthy, the trade would have been a huge win for us.

    I’ll give you the contracts are comparable, the difference is the Jets are competing now for a cup and he’s an important piece whereas we’re nowhere near ready to compete (2-3 years away) and Okposos contract is just an albatross preventing us from acquiring talent to compete.

    I think Chevy is one of best GMs around. I think Tyler Myers gets moved. They’ll be fine. They don’t have any Okposo contracts on the books

    I think the plan is to sign a major free agent preferably Matt Duchenne. Resign Skinner and keep the draft picks. Then bribe Seattle into taking Okposo contract in the expansion draft next year.
  13. Are you familiar with Phil Housley early years? He was so poor defensively that he was moved to forward. He’s in the HOF. Rasmus will be amazing. Do you know who was the last 18 year old defenseman to be great in his rookie year? Bobby Orr. That was 50 years ago.
  14. Mittelstadt belongs in Rochester. I think he’s only here because we traded ROR. He clearly isn’t ready. We are very weak down the middle. I’m not sure how we are going to improve the center position in the near future. Asplund isn’t ready either. Samson can’t play center. Maybe Girgensons is the best answer for now.
  15. I also never want to see Sobotka on the power play again.
