Signing JT would be huge, albeit far-fetched. Why would a Toronto boy who has played his entire career in the East, on a team with one of the best travel schedules, sign with a bottom feeding Canadian team with the worst travel sched in the league?

I just don't see it.

More realistic destinations are with the Rag$, Flyers and Leaves.

Now, if one of these teams is looking to dump salary/prospects/picks in order to make the deal happen, that is where Jim needs to be proactive.

Sbisa for sure, Nuckles. Sbisa for sure. McPhee loved this 2nd pairing D-man, my not be possible
2nd pairing d man who is fifth among Vegas d men in minutes per game. Very interesting.
19:31 Minutes Per Game = 104th in the league = Top 4 icetime. :mex:
But not top 4 on the team he plays for

And your point is?

Dude didn't say The Stalwart One is a 2nd pairing D-man on Vegas.

He gets :014 PP TOI/GP, and is #3 on the team for SH TOI/GP.

That's what you look for in a STALWART defender.

Mikael Backlund is top-30 in icetime for Centres. Must mean he's a 1C and a terrific bargain.

Flames have garbage centre depth. Backlund is getting those minutes because of that. Flames are shite. Knights are class. Sbisa is getting big minutes on an excellent team.

How are the Islanders getting a 9th and an 11th ranked lottery pick in 2018? See Hamonic trade. Stalwart

LOL. While you're at it, give it up for legitimate top six forward Darren Helm (186th in TOI/G for forwards on the back of 2 minutes of SH time a game)...
