Still more interested in giving Schmid a chance than paying up for Hellebuyck’s Age 30 and beyond years.

With what we just saw out of the kid in both the regular season and playoffs, I don’t know how you don’t give him a shot at it.  For me personally, I’m going into the off-season super excited about the idea of Schmid becoming our 1A and I’m with you that Vanacek is a perfect 1B.  

I don’t think we have to do anything at the goaltending position this summer.   I mean that literally too.  Don’t even make a phone call to Blackwoods agent.

Yeah no thanks. We need to replace that regular season production but you just can’t pay 8 plus for a guy who does the playoff disappearing act

Even without the disappointing playoff performance, 8 just seems a little high to me for 70 point player like Bratt. We all just laughed at the Islanders for paying Horvat 8.5. 

Someone might say; well what about paying Timo that much or more, his career high in points is 76. To that I would argue Timo brings a much more unique skill set. A power forward that hits everything in sight, and scores 40 goals a season is harder to find imo. 

Bratt should probably be more in the Kevin Fiala range. 7.8 AAV. And even that might be pushing it a bit considering that’s more than Nico makes. 

I don’t particularly want to lose a really good homegrown player like Bratt, especially such a nice find in the 6th round, but I hope Fitz stands pat on this one (which by all indications he seems to be doing). If Bratt and his agent want to come to their senses - great. If they don’t, it just might not be in the cards for Bratt to be a part of this thing.

One good thing is we can QO Bratt, then trade once he gets hot mid season.

Meier is absolutely worth the money for points, but also the size and physicality we DESPERATELY have needed with our top lines.

He clearly enjoyed his time here so far, now I want him to stay as long as jack and Nico

Bratt needs to WANT to be here or GTFO

Nemec is untouchable. I hang up after a hearty laugh. If Dubas wants help on D, he can overpay Severson.

Yeah most of the 30 seconds would be me saying no to any deals involving Nemec.  I have both Luke AND him as completely untouchable.

He also doesn’t mince words…

 

Wow…get the feeling Bratt’s not too popular there at the moment.

Stuff like this makes me wonder if the reason Haula and Hughes played so long together during the season was because Hughes told Lindy that he preferred to play with Haula than anyone else

Very possible. I also think Haula was more impactful playing with Jack than we really wanted to admit. Sure, Jack could have probably finished with about 10 more points than he did if Haula wasn’t so snake bitten early on, but he also enabled Jack to really play his game. 

And Haula was clearly as frustrated with his slow start as anyone.
