In Topic: What would you trade for McDavid

20 April 2015 - 12:35 PM

The title of the thread was what would you trade for McDavid and the topic of the young D came up.

I wonder what percent of Stanley Cup winningrosters consist of homegrown talent?


Just because the title of the thread is about a trade doesn't mean I was refrencing it at all. You know this and every post is a discussion. You brought up our d being mediocre, which I think is an inaccurate read given their extreme youth which you overlooked in your assessment.

Trading hopes for a generational talent is Millbury bad GMing.  i guess on a team this bad fans need something to cling on to. I am not enamored by this D in the slightest. The x factor is with Adam. If he can improve his skating exponentially, then his upside may be exciting.  He still looks like he struggles with players coming down the wall with speed and the game is only getting faster. I am not sure how I fell about Merrill, hopefully,if he is here next season he takes a step forward offensively. Gelinas, may be someone you can hide if he has a stronger partner, even then not sure he can play at this level on a nightly basis. LL may be willing to give these guys some more time in order to develop/boost value. I don't see this team being much better next season, so unless LL feels his job in jeopardy I don't see a fire sale of our supposed plethora of young d-men. And just stop, if you think EDM would trade McDavid for them even if Schneids was included.

 

I didn't say anything about a trade with Edmonton. You just said our Defense is mediocre, our defense is going to be very good, I think you are underestimating how young they are is all.

 

And you are right this team is going to suck again next year, and the year after that and probably the following year. We need an entire top 6. And until we hit rock bottom we probably wont really rebuild our forward corps the way it needs to be done.

What "spare" pieces would even get you close to that trade?

The Devils D is rediculously overated. It isn't that far off from the forwards in terms of mediocrity.

 

It depends on how you look at it. They currently aren't very good, but the core is extremely young and they are already playing at a "mediocre" level. in 2-4 years we will have one of the best D cores in the league.

So im curious and it's a serious question

Why is it a fireable offense suddenly to some of you to not trade a 43 year old and missing the playoffs when we are 6-8 pts away from a playoffs spot

But it was completely fine and understandable not trading a 27 years old Clarkson in his prime who just scored 30 and who was on pace for another 30 through a full season, basically at the peak of his top value in his career when we were pretty much 6-8 points away at that time too... and a guy who wanted way too much money... and then miss the playoffs....


Good question. I think the reality was we were a better team then. We are dog sh!t right now, back then we were still dominating play but not finishing, this year we don't do either.
