Just to be clear, bunch of english guys... it's not really well translate.
And me, with my broken english ... I will save you ! 

So basically, he say something more like " Don't touch number 13 or You will have to go through me " 

But yeah.. Someone really motivate would love to go through him.. And go punch Nico after. But ... hey...

Well i'm french too and all he's saying is that he got hit in the face haha

Quote

«Touche pas au numéro 13», a dit Genazzi au Letton fautif, avant de se prendre un bon coup de poing au visage et de passer quatre minutes sur le banc des pénalités dans la foulée. «Il m’a bien cogné, juste sur le nez, et ça a un peu piqué. Mais bon…» Caissier, policier: vraiment un précieux gars d’équipe, Genazzi!

so......

"Dont touch number 13..." then said he got hit in the face and spent 4 minutes in the penalty box... then he said "he got me good, right on the nose.. it stung a bit but hey....."

so the updated version is... "don't hit #13 cause you'll have to punch someone trying to make a point and spend 4 minutes in the box"

Who knew that a 55 year old could still play...

Anyway, do we try and throw the bank at a guy like Myers? Or is that not a good idea?  Karlsson is obviously the best offensive dman available, but I feel we need pure defense at this point.

Ray if you're reading this, just say NO to Tyler Myers.

Ok, could you explain a bit? I don't get to see Myers play a lot so don't know much about him except he started with Buffalo.

Is he slow, inept, plodding, poor teammate?

He stinks.  He's been overrated ever since his rookie year and Buffalo of all teams threw him in the Kane deal.  He has bad possession numbers playing on a good team where he is not playing against the other team's best players and his time on ice has dropped steadily since he's been in Winnipeg who has made no efforts to keep him around, which tells you something. 

He's this offseason's Jack Johnson.  Just. Don't. Do It.

Why the networks or cable TV channels don't show Three O'Clock High more often is beyond me.  It seems like one of the network plays it once a year and that's it.  It is one of the greatest hidden gems of the HS teen genre from the 80's (along with Can't Buy Me Love).

Myers plays with grit as well. Like to see him pursued but  being reasonable with $$$/term. I wonder if we're kinda set on Centers? Trav/Zacha/Nico & Hughes? I think Zucker be a nice addition. Nyquist? nah.

For the love of Odin, no Tyler Myers.  If we want grit on the blue line, we can bring back Lovejoy.

I'd take a flyer on Myers before I brought the Rev back.. and I actually liked his season/post season this year.

Myers as a top pair is bad news, Myers in the bottom 4 and not relied on to be THE shutdown guy would be fine at the right price.

at this point i think i'd rather give a shot to one of our young guy and live with his rookie mistakes over signing an average guy for cheap

Ya from what you guys are saying, Myers is mediocre at best so hardly worth the 6+ million he will want.

Pass on that

From Friedman’s 31 Thoughts this week: 31. Finally, congratulations to Matt Cane, hired by New Jersey as Director of Analytics. A few teams have tried to hire him, and this is the opportunity he chose. His work I’m most familiar with is on contracts. He’d do an annual spreadsheet predicting what various players would get on their upcoming deals, with guesstimates for different term lengths. His model was reasonably accurate, and I’ll miss going through it.

Wonder if there's a way to get a copy of some of his previous spreadsheets.  Even if it's just the data and not actually any formulas or calculations he may have used to guess and predict contracts.  Just would be interesting to see how close he was on some of the big names/contracts over the last few years.

Consensus on Myers seems to be that if he wasn't a physical freak at 6'-7" or whatever he'd have washed out of the league ages ago.

Seems like one of those guys with the physical tools but zero between the ears.  

Unless we can get him on a very, very favorable contract I would pass.  Hard pass.

This came out 11 days ago and after looking through this thread only, I didnt see anything from that day other than a back and forth about a certain player which I wont name to avoid 2.0

Hypothetically speaking. say Marner wants $10.5m... I'd honestly have to give it a good thought for the cost. Hall/Nico/Bratt & Marner/Hughes/Palms... as a potential top 6....

Hell Devil Killer Point wouldnt be a bad guy to go after either

Of course, we need to lock up Hallsy but with the asinine cap space we'll have currently and will be off the books in the coming years....

😦😔

sh!t, I'm not normally cool enough to dig deep into analytical tools and the new-age data in sports, and I thought I was here though.

Didn't realize it was akin to asking for dungeons and dragons cheat codes lol.
