Not a bad idea; But let's add to it;
http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/leag ... 32016.html

Tanev and our 3rd round 2019 pick for their 1st round 2019 pick and Drake.

If JB gets a 1st for Tanev I will personally buy a plaque for him with Genius written on it.

That is a trade I could see happening. Oilers 1st for either Tanev or Edler. Something along those lines make sense for both sides.

I would be happy to sell Hutton or MDZ (or both) as well.. anything to reduce the logjam on D and make room for a rookie.

Hutton can be sold on the 'not as bad as it looked' last year and MDZ on leadership or fitness. Chirelli negotiates just as bad as Benning, so it reasonable that JB could get 3rds or 4ths for them.. heck MDZ could get a 3rd and a 5th or something..

Now, JB will probably want to wait until training camp opens and get a look at what we have this year (I applaud patience!) and someone else will sell Edmonton a defenceman next week.. and Edmonton will prolly overpay, and we will miss the window..
The 'Chain of Command' is the chain I am going to beat you with until you understand I am in charge.

I doubt it, it'll be another lotto year in Edmonton, no way do they part with their 1st.

The only way I could see it is similar to Duchene, optional 1st either this year or next.

If Edmonton will trade their 1st this year outright, I'd be okay with throwing some extra to get it.

I wanted both Ladd and Brouwer at reduced term and cap hit but I can see why you would leave that out.
You wanted Brouwer for “4 years at $4.25M"... and he got 4 years at $4.5M. :eh:

(recall me digging up that post in the Bountiful thread 2 weeks ago)

It was a horrible buy-it-out contract at $4.5M X 4 and it would have been a horrible buy-it-out contract at $4.25M X 4.

"reduced term and cap hit"... come on! :D

And look…

I would take Lucic at $6M until he is 34 years old over Eriksson at the same price until he is 37.
I probably would as well Meds but he didn't want to play here, same with Andrew Ladd.

I don't mind Eriksson, he's a good player and a solid two way guy. Sure the term all of the top line guys got is a bit long, but that's what it takes to land a big fish on July 1. A Brouwer or a Mcginn on top of Loui would have been a good day for Ignitowski.
To summarize, two years ago you loved the then-fresh signings of Eriksson, Lucic, Ladd, Brouwer, and Mcginn.

(and you were on record as wanting Jimmy to SPEND SPEND SPEND that summer on those particular UFAs)

I don't wanna be "that guy" :look: but you always rub the Dude's nose in it and then DENY DENY DENY when he returns the favour.

As an aside, I believe my good buddy Meds the Giant was the only poster criticizing the Loui signing on signing day...

Lol at Kesler challenging Johansen to a fight from 1000 miles away. RJ stepped on his stick in that scrap but Rk being the chicken shit that he is thinks he somehow won his first ever fight
Kesler resides inside Mr Johansen's head, it's hilarious the number he's done on the big schmuck over the last couple of years! :lol:

And come on, Kess isn't exactly a chicken shit nor a lousy scrapper...

And unlike yourself I can admit when management or I have fucked up. Can you? Nope not at all. That’s why you are a joke. You think Elmer has been error free during his time as GM. Keep on keeping on. Has he made any mistakes in your opinion?
