Oh my god, Mangiapane is up going to arbitration. I know that you had to deal with Gaudreau and I think Tkachuk still is still RFA. Calgary is juggling a bunch here and dropped one key guy already. 

Imagine being Calgary and having to downplay a 40 goal season. "This season was a fluke statistically. Look at how much scoring there was around the league."

That is probably verbatim what the Devils are going to say if Bratt makes it to his arbitration hearing.

No Tkachuk at this hearing.. 

In all the options available for him is the one where he pushs hard to be trade. Not especially for us of course but we can pay!

IF and i say IF Tkachuk make moves in order to leave calgary and sign his QO. 1-They'll have to trade him 2-We'd have to trade for him with an extension or wtv... Cause with Tarasenko coming off the books in St-Louis they would totally have the money to throw at him... and there's a good chance he'd want to go there

True.. Keith is a legend there and Matt and Brady grew up there

i'd give 2 first, 2nd and a 3rd for tkachuk if he'd sign an offer sheet.

But 1-Calgary would match 2-The pick for next year with Bedard in the draft would worry me greatly lol

So to re-cap. i don't think it's worth doing

Tarasenko would be going to Calgary most likely.

Why would Tarasenko go to calgary? If they’re moving on from Tkachuk they’re entering a full rebuild. Why add a 31 year old expiring contract winger to the mix?

Yep. We have the Marty connection, and he would look great on Jack or Nico’s wing. I’m sure people will worry about his age, but you aren’t going to find a better natural goal scorer who’s available (unless CBJ looks to move Laine).

What has that connection brought us so far, remind me. 

Not being an ass (for once), I genuinely don't remember.

Nothing really. I remember Hamilton mentioning Marty when he signed , but this is all I could find:

"Brodeur and Fitzgerald are two ex-NHL players who have had amazing careers and understand hockey, understand culture, and I think as a player, you want to learn from guys like that," Hamilton said "You want to be around guys like that, and I think that's definitely exciting. Just to kind of see their vision and what they want to do with the team and how it's a first-class organization, it's exciting. 

Obviously most are going to chalk that up to player speak, and not put much stock into it, but I do think Marty is pretty well respected around the league. 

Other than Pietrangelo, Tarasenko would be the biggest FA from the Blues to hit the market recently, so Marty being there for a few years in their FO could help? Who knows. I have no idea how well they know each other, but maybe Marty himself picks up the phone next summer and tries to convince Tarasenko to come to the Devils and play wing for Jack Hughes or Nico Hischier.

We didn't get Husso either. 

I feel like Marty's connections have been brought up a lot, and they haven't led to anything of significance that I recall.
