In Topic: Tom Fitzgerald named Assistant GM

24 July 2015 - 12:09 PM

Why does any team need an assistant GM?  What exactly does an assistant GM do?

 

Too many chiefs and not enough indians.  

In Topic: Lou is New Toronto GM

This is a classic sign of a man who was "ousted symbolically" and "downgraded" to a lesser position on his own turf and him getting revenge by feeling "wanted" somewhere else and uprooting and going that direction.  

 

It's funny that Lou didn't do what he kinda asked Marty to do...go off into the sunset on top.  Instead, he is still not calling it quits and this can taint his legacy much like Marty's curtain call was kinda tainted...

In Topic: Gomez, Clemmensen, Bernier gone

Gomez was a very "good sport" last year, but he is a holdover from the Lamoriello regime and hence there are a few good reasons not to retain him.  He is in his mid-thirties and looking for a raise.  Not a good combination for a player that can't provide much for the overall future of the team.

 

Bernier, I liked.  Good heart, played hard.  But, he was also gonna look for a raise.  Besides, we have several players the "likes" of Bernier, including Ruutu, Zubrus, and Tootoo, so no need for a "fourth redundant option."

 

I would like to see us rid the team of guys the likes of Zubrus and Ruutu, but I'm not sure if that is doable.

 

I also can see the Gomez, Harrold, Bernier, Clemmer, Salvador departures opening the door for a cheap signing of Marty St. Louis.

 

If I had to pick between Gomer and MSL, I would go with the latter, and maybe Shero is preparing for just this.

In Topic: How About Some Possible Trade Talk?

09 June 2015 - 12:50 PM

CBJ seem like a suitable trade partner for us, but really, all I am interested in having from CBJ are the following:

 

1.  Johanssen

2.  Wennberg

3.  Foligno

4.  Dubinsky

 

What is Dubinsky's cap hit?  Do you think CBJ would take on Zajac's salary for a straight up swap between Dubinsky and Zajac?

 

Johanssen and Wennberg are pipe dreams for us, so I doubt they're even in discussion.  Same goes for Foligno since he just re-signed with CBJ.

 

Dubinsky / Anisimov are probably the guys CBJ want to shop.

In Topic: Pietila and Kujawinski signed.
