Does Doyle have anything to say with regards to Oli Juolevi?
What’s to say that hasn’t been said?

It was a putrid draft pick at #5

Is Jim gonna be a Gunslinger leading up to the deadline? There’s no telling what this guy is capable of. He’s clinical. Maniacal. Not scared. A genius! Think Eddie Felson. That’s Jim to a T.
I sense a trade in the works and your boy Juolevi might be the carrot used to acquire a rental top 6 forward like Simmonds or possibly toffy. It may include sutter going thattaway for the cap space even

Simmonds and Toffoli are both slow. No thanks to either.

I don't get why that would be desirable? Simmods is 31 and declining. Toffoli is depressed or something.
We don't need rentals yet.
But if a large caliper move were to happen, gotta include Eriksson leaving. One way or another because if he was used in the right role, ....... :devil: He would be more valuable in a swap.

This - we don't need to get slower. Both are scoring less and less due to the league getting faster than they can play.

Simmonds can still play. He is more of a physical playoff type of asset who can score greasy goals in tough areas against tough teams. He sticks up for his team and hits hard.

All this and his contract expires in june. I dunno about you but i see the top 6 could use this type of an infusion that goes away come summer. Theyre not scoring and teams are finding ways to neutralize us.

For sure Simmonds is a hard-nosed playoff-type - but see Toppers comments throughout. We aren't ready to compete IN the playoffs, as our placeholders aren't good enough. We need help MAKING the playoffs, and I'm not sure Simmonds is that guy...

And giving up assets, of any kind, at this point is a bad idea - we are still in draft/develop mode.

Well ya...this is likely why we might not see this type of move.

I still say Jimmy makes a move tho

Benning confirmed Wednesday in an interview with Sportsnet
Wrong! in an interview with TSN ! 1040 am radio to be exact. I don't favor one or the other but let's stay accurate.

hear the real interview in News n Notes
Is it possible that yesterday Jimmy did an radio interview with Sekeres & Price AND a phone interview with MacIntyre? :scowl:

FFS MacIntyre has a bunch of exact quotes there that weren't said in the radio interview...

Wonder where taylor hall will end up?

NJ Devils sat him for a potential deal, guessing the Avs, Yotes or Panthers.
