In Topic: Cory Schneider Appreciation Thread

Shameful. Much as I ragged on him the way he's performing the guy deserves better.
That said he's preventing our team from getting a top draft pick so screw off Cory. j/k

why though? if we were in a true rebuild, then yes we should go for extremely young guys, etc.

but thats not the case. Kessel is a year younger than Schneider. The idea is clearly to win a cup around Schneider, so whouldn't we surround him with guys that will be in their prime at the same time? I honestly think Kessel would be a perfect piece to add... he plays the RW too. we have a Defense in place, with a stud goaltender, we should add a Kessel, and a few other forwards and we're set.

obviously its easier said than done, but in theory that would be a prime scenario.

It needs to be the right type of forwards. They lack a 1c. As you said easier said than done and do you have 100% faith in Lou and Conte to get what we lack and not water them down with "Devils hockey"?

Honestly if we got knocked out of the 1st rd or just barely missed the playoffs then I'd say go for Kessel. But right now I would rather trade the 1st for a package starring Kadri, Hall or Drouin.

Each of them are expendable, sorry. No one has the ability to carry this team and scare opponents. When Scott Gomez leads the team in points you know something is wrong.

On paper a trade for Kessel is a good idea but isn't that kinda move for Cup contenders? He's also on a bad Leafs team yet he's gonna make this team a contender? If this team is gonna rebuild then IDK if he's the answer. He's not that young.

I expected this as much. But it's still disappointing and this club will continue to stay stagnant on and off the ice for the near future with him in charge.

 

Missing the playoffs 3 straight years and 4/5 with the loss of income should be a red flag for normal ownership.

Depends on the return. IE Taylor Hall or their 1st? Might be too hard to pass up.

Goalies don't draw people to games. The star forwards do.
