2019 Offseason Thread

Larry brooks isn’t an insider, and it doesn’t matter what he says. 

But I do believe Shero is going after Trouba, and would be disappointed to find out that he didn’t kick the tires.

If it’s a sign-and-trade and the deal is Bratt and a lottery protected 1st, I take that in a goddamn second.

Yeah I think you’d have to do that. I’m not keen on trading Bratt, but that’s the kind of return they are going to get for Trouba I would think.

Phaneuf, you’re next

 

6 points in 67 games. Wow, I didn’t realize he was that epically bad. 

Happy retirement, Phaneuf is enough.

i can't imagine the Rangers keeping their 2nd first round pick so they'll likely use it to get something pretty good that we'd want which sucks

That plus a good but not great player might be good Trouba bait.

Hawks are on crack, Maatta is a pylon and I seriously thought had negative value, getting a good going forward and a pick is a big W for the Pens.

I felt the same. Maatta is young, that’s about all he’s got going for him.

they have Shattenkirk, deangelo, Fox and pionk already on the right side though. Not sure why they'd go for another one

They are going to do everything they can to move Shattenkirk.

No one wants that disaster unless it's on the cheap. Would love to see him shipped out though. His dream of being a Rag would be short lived haha and a stain on his career.

i saw jimmy Vesey's name in trade rumours too... i mean... the rangers keep getting players that jjust want to go there even if they keep on trading and buying out players that does

you'd imagine that after awhile they'd be worried about that

I’m not sure they’ll be able to do it, but they’ll try. 

Cap hit of $6.65m per year for the next two years.

Saw that too, Buffalo was calling apparently. You know, the team that got his rights and he said fvck off to.

this is the equivalent of being drunk in the middle of the night, picking up the phone and texting your ex “u up?”

If they traded him there, that would be pure comedy. The ultimate “fvck you, Jimmy” from both sides.

it truly sucks cause as we know being succesful is often a cycle... often when we were amazing the rangers sucked (and the habs for me) so it was always good... then it was painful that we sucked and that they were good... now we're on our way up and the rangers seemed to be crashing fast... but looks like they have lots of assets to rebuilt faster than we'd hope. It sure helps when players just want to go there, saved them from not drafting a first rounder for like... 10 years in a row

To get Trouba, you have to give up something of real value so as much as it would pain me, I also agree if that is what Shero is offered, you have to take that deal.

I can't imagine the Jets trade Trouba without getting a D prospect, young d-man, or 2019 top 12 first round pick back in the deal or a combination of those.

You understand they’re trading him because they can’t afford him, right? They don’t have the ability to demand a king’s ransom. Bratt and a first seems pretty fair to me.

A first round pick from the Devils is better than one from some other teams that's for sure. But just because they can't afford Trouba, doesn't mean they can't afford any d-man. There's a reason I didn't say I think they're looking to trade Trouba for a player of equal value. In terms of the Devils, I could see Butcher being involved in a deal there. They'll save plenty of money like that, even after Butcher signs his next contract. 

I'm also hung up on the idea that the Jets would take a 2020 first with nothing in 2019. They are not a team planning to win down the road. They're win now every year. The Devils do have 2nd round picks to give this year, but the Flyers and Rangers both have a first.

This is what my options are for Trouba: 2020 1st Rounder and/or 2019 2nd Rounder, Will Butcher and/or Jesper Bratt. Pick one of each, if worst case, throw in the 2nd rounder. I dont think Shero parts with Ty Smith, I wouldnt want to.
