  1. I don't understand this thinking, is Reinhart not a 60+ point player? Why would we give up a 60+ point player for any reasoning? If anything you just split Sam and Jack, I'm not really understanding the logic. I got why we would trade Ristolainen for a 2nd line Center at the beginning of the season but trading Sam for a guy who most definitely isn't going to bring us 60+ points and another draft pick seems like a terrible idea to me.
  2. Awesome back to back victories but not to be a debbie downer, didn't we win 10 straight last season? Just saying there is so much more season left to play, I love what they're doing so far though, they look really good.
  3. I didn't see anything in his game that makes me think he'll be a viable NHL contributor, sometimes there are late bloomers but you'd think you'd see signs of life at this stage in his career. He hasn't with the Blues and they were alright parting with him. I hope I'm wrong about it but I doubt it, he'll be on the bottom pairing if not in the AHL and probably at best 21-25 points.
  4. Buffalo fans love to celebrate the mediocre so I say not a chance he comes back.
  5. I'll just wait for the Chinese knock off of this, I can only imagine what this is going to cost in the Sabres store.
  6. We're definitely a better team with him than without him so unless we're getting a stud 2nd line center than we need to keep him imo. Drew Doughty had the 2ndworst +- and I see him as an elite Dman but if you look at all of the +- players almost all the top guys were from winning teams, only a select few were not.
  7. I like this signing as much as the McCabe deal and I think the defense really ***** the bed in front of Ullmark, some nights he showed flashes of what he could become. I know some have written him off as a bum but I think with improved defense he can take a step forward as goalies usually take some time to develop.
  8. That would be a horrible idea and I doubt a guy who could be fired if he doesn't produce soon is going to trade a proven player for more draft picks that may or may not help right away. We need immediate help at 2nd line C, possibly at RW and a LHD wouldn't hurt either. If he just trades Risto for picks he deserves to be fired IMO.
  9. This was a great signing imo, now all we need to do is trade Scandella for anything, trade for a 2nd line C and sign FA Gardiner to a 1 year deal if possible.
  10. By emulate I meant add tougher players to the group we already have in place, there are very few teams with the build of the Bruins/Blues but like you said we don't have to be but I do think we have to add some more toughness to the roster and that doesn't mean trading for a goon like Lucic, I mean solid two way players like Tyler Toffoli of the LA Kings, he had a down year but has shown in the past that he can be a real asset plus was rumored quite a bit to be on the market. Guys like that just make your roster better, those guys who are good along the boards or clear the puck out of the zone can really make a huge difference imo. When I look at Boston I see the grit on almost every line whether it's from Bergeron, Marchand, Chara you can name a bunch more . I see it in Eichel, McCabe, Risto, Bogo for the 4 games he's on the ice and then I don't really see it anywhere else. When I saw Nelson do absolutely nothing when he saw our captain get cheap shoted with an elbow I immediately wanted him off the roster, I've seen top scorers go after guys that cheap shot others just to let them know that won't fly, it reminded me of the whole Lucic leveling Ryan Miller back in the day.
  11. You nailed it for me right at the end there, you can say every trade Botterill made was for that type of player so why not keep a Mccabe around who can actually play decent defense? We have plenty of Nelson's already, now we need some toughness. The Bruins and Blues have a good mixture of both which are 2 teams I'd like to emulate.
  12. See I guess people just see things differently which I'm fine with but I see 95% of the 7-8D in the NHL who can do what Nelson does but many of them have a backbone which Nelson does not.
  13. Not sure what people are seeing in Casey Nelson, the dude is soft , is a liability defending.
  14. I like what McCabe brings to the table, he adds toughness to a group that's pretty weak. He isn't flashy and adds very little scoring but he let's players know he's around by his hits and checking ability which I like and think 3-3.2M is fair for what he is.
  15. It would be great to get out of the Okposso contract but Scandella and Sobotka like many on here have said make sense. Scandella might have some value on the trade market.
