my dislike for the player is based on living in south jersey and seeing him ass up the ice in many of the flyers games.  He should stick to stalking porn stars on twitter and instagram.  I think it's a huge stretch to use MDZ and hitting in the same sentence.  He's sodt always has been always will be.  We have enough soft players already we don't need another one who is a fringe NHL player. 

Lol - I'd never heard this story - but just looked it up.  MDZ seems like a real scumbag IRL.  Doesn't change my opinion that many players on the right contract can add value, but yeah, seems like a d-bag.

Hypothetical question for you guys from reddit..

If you were Shero, would you consider an offer sheet for Draisaitl at 9.8M?  Compensation we'd owe Edmonton would be two 1st round picks, a 2nd and 3rd.  

The 9.8M figure stands out because at $9,814,935 compensation jumps to four 1st round picks.

It'll never happen, obviously, but it's a fun thought experiment.  If McDavid gets his rumored 13.25M/8 year deal then the Oilers would be royally fvcked if they were forced to match a 9.8M/7 year deal for Draisaitl.

a: The Oilers would match in 4 seconds

b: I would not trade those picks with how our roster looks on 06/29/2017. If we sign Shattenkirk, maybe. Mayyyybe.

c: I would hate to have the Oilers immediately match and then Shero burns a bridge with one of the more trigger-happy GMs in hockey.

I agree with all of these points.

I feel like Severson, and even an aging Greene, are good enough puck movers and skaters to make up for having a stay at home defenseman back there.   If we were to add Shattenkirk as well, then we're golden.  

They are good enough puckmovers to help NJ in the 18-ish minutes they themselves play. The issue is the remaining 30-odd even strength minutes and the guys listed are not the solution to that. Those players will be more of the same.

I know Calvin de Haan is not a UFA but do the Devils have enough to trade for de Haan.  I heard he wants 5 million not sure the Islanders want to pay him that much

Da Haan=5 mil?  I don't think so.

Larry Brooks: @NYP_Brooksie:

Expect Devils to be among most serious and aggressive bidders for Shattenkirk

 

 

Wow. Once again, top notch reporting from Brooks. This is truly an original and ground-breaking tweet.

I would pay De Haan 5 million dollars...

He had 42 points last year. He's not completely and totally useless. I'd love to have him back to play a limited role, sorta like Shanahan in 2009. 

Yeah, honestly with the youth movement going on, arguably his veteran presence would be more useful now than it was the last time.
