Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Yeah those trades are all over the place, it's impossible to determine what a trade+buyout of Marleau might cost the Leaves. Also, none of the guys you mention were on 35+ contracts, and all of them had most of their salary paid by insurance. My 35+ Malakhov comparison was from 12 years ago, so not...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

The only similar deal I can recall is when Joisy traded Malakhov + 1st to the Sharks for 2 nobodies (dumps). You got me, I had no memory of that player or that trade. I guess that was in the flurry of weird things Lou did to get under the Cap - hard to believe NJ was once one of the biggest-spendin...

Re: OOTS 2018-2019

And the Avs and Wild lose again today. man if the canucks can get 2pts tomorrow, they'd be nipping at that final wild card spot. Ducks also play tomorrow but vs the powerful jets, the Oilers are winning vs AZ 1-0 after one period.*update the OILERs lose* Ducks and Oilers now only have 1 game in han...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

So along with moving up in the draft, Coyotes came out $1.3M in real money ahead. Meanwhile it would cost a team $3.83333M in real money to trade for and buyout Marleau. (that's a $5.13333M swing) That's a lot of coin, not many could/would do that... for a late 1st round pick. It would have to be a...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

If we want a first round pick, what about something like this draft day deal... IF the Leaves can convince Marleau to do them a solid. Leaves will be utterly desperate for cap room next season. Marleau + first to Vancouver for a seventh, then Marleau is immediately bought out. Buyout cost will be $...

Rinse repeat.....,
Not really, we've clearly and unequivocally established that of all the things to do with Alex Edler, you definitely don't give him a 3-year contract with full NMC :lol: :lol:

Re: What to do with Alex Edler ?

Cool story Casey..., or is it Finnegan? I’ve often wondered if Doc lubes his arm when he jams it up your ass or do you take it dry? For the record Doc can be an excellent poster when he actually talks hockey. Lately he seems to concerned with ad hominem attacks, derailing threads and straw man cons...

Re: What to do with Alex Edler ?

Time for another Skyo-from-12-years-ago-type intervention folks. Whoa whoa whoa, no need to drag Skyo's good name into this. While I had been prepared to cut Blob some slack, as he's not used to watching hockey this "late" in the season, but he's totally lost the plot. But blob, we're all pulling f...

Well they should have drafted Nylander or Ehlers instead of Virtanen. That goes without saying.

Re: OOTS 2018-2019

God, why wouldn't they cough up 5th for Nilsson then? Why would they? They are tanking, and saved a 5th doing it. Tanking team signed JVR to $35 million contract. And is in the tank one year after returning to the playoffs. Interesting. Maybe gives some context to the Eriksson signing by a likewise...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

Jake has a reasonably good chance of having more goals this season than both Nylander and Ehlers.

But good thing we've written the book on him at the age of 22!
