    Wanting to cum and wanting to have control are not the same

    No, because one is for pleasure, we don’t yet know the motive for the other.

    The Ducks won the 07 cup while leading the league in fighting majors. The Devils won 3 cups by having Stevens and Daneyko turn the neutral zone and slot into a crime scene for 15 years, and the bruins with Lucic/chars/Marchand had some dirty tricks. Other than that, it’s mostly talent focused teams that win

    Yep, and right now I don’t really trust what the news is saying. Obviously those on the right are spinning it as hard as they can to make it look as fake as possible, and those elsewhere are now being careful as a brain surgeon with a tremor not to say anything else to give more fuel to the mouth breathers over at fox. The police haven’t even finished their questionions of Smollett, apparently, so it’s all speculation at this point.

    It’s also worth nothing that we are basically locked in to a first round matchup with Boston (again). Tampa is 18 points ahead of Boston, and Montreal is 5 behind us. We can beat Boston with Kapanen - Matthews - Nylander Hyman - Tavares - Marner Marleau - Kadri - Johnsson Lindholm - Goat - Ennis Rielly - Muzzin Gardiner - Gudas Dermott - Zaitsev Hainsey Andersen Sparks We don’t need to pay to upgrade from Gudas to Pesce, it’s unnecessary, we have Muzzin for top pair. We don’t need to pay to dump Zaitsev now, he can be nailed to the third pair where he won’t play as many minutes. He can even sit in the press box and just sub in if Hainsey needs a rest, or if you want to give Rielly or Muzzin a night off as the playoffs approach. We can wait till the summer to deal with Zaitsev, it’s not an emergent situation. Capfriendly is down for server maintenance rn, but I’ll look at his salary later...

    I’m waiting until the story stops changing before I bother catching up on specifics. It does seem to be staged at this point, but we don’t know the motive yet.. the difference between this and @King of Dick Mountain, bee tee dubs, is that one is consenual sexual acts and the other is some degree victim mentality at play.

    Gudas is a move that makes a lot of sense. He balances Gardiner out on the second pair with some defense first play, reasonable contract, and not going to cost an arm and a leg to acquire

    Duchene is getting moved first, and Jets need a centre more than another winger eh? They’ve already got Ehlers and Wheeler on the wings, and Laine if he ever wakes up... edit- ah, just checked, seems Ehlers isn’t back yet? Didn’t realize his injury was so long term.

    The point of trading is to improve your team, though. If we trade Nylander and Zaitsev for Pesce and Ferland that does not make us a better team today. Nylander is so much better than Ferland that the difference between Pesce and Zaitsev is almost inconsequential. That trade also does not make us a better team next year. Pairing a piece like Nylander with a cap dump is terrible. That’s what the Sens were rumoured to be doing with EK and Ryan, and everyone thought it was a joke. You can clear Zaitsevs contract without dumping Nylander, so there is no situation that makes sense to do it. Maybe 3 teams have a D that is the appropriate age range and skill level for us to ever include Nylander in a trade, it’s not happening. The only team that had any real chatter going was the Blues and they’ve now turned it around with a dozen wins in a row.

    Paying people to beat you up, tie a rope around your neck, and pour (presumably gas) on you is not something a healthy minded person does.

    No because we can’t sign hughes in 4 years when his contact is up... need to think about the future...

    Honestly, how old are you? I legit want to know. Do you not remember how awful the leafs were for the past generation? The leafs have been miserable for a long time, with few bright spots (Gilmour, 93 and 94, Sundin/Cujo 99 and 02). The leafs right now are the most talent heavy team the leafs have assembled since the glory days of the 60s. We have two franchise caliber centres, Marner is borderline franchise caliber as well. Rielly is one of the best defense men in the league, and we’ve got Nylander/Kap and others just as bonus to the JT/AM/MR/MM core. We also have the best goalie the leafs have had, perhaps ever. This team doesn’t need to add talent, it needs to develop consistency.

    If true there is obviously a serious mental health issue at play here

    Carolina might do Pesce and Ferland for Nylander, but why would we want to deal with another UFA in Ferland? Zaitsev has little/no value at this time, any value he does have is based solely on his right hand shot. If he were a left shot he’s a straight salary dump. If you package him with Nylander it brings value down. If you want to get rid of Zaitsev and add Pesce and Ferland then you’re going to have to add at least a 2nd or 3rd round draft pick and a prospect to make up for zaitsev’s contract. The trade would have to look like Nylander, Zaitsev, 3rd round pick, Johnsson or something like that for Pesce and Ferland. Thats a hard pass from me, thanks. Again, we have Rielly, Muzzin, Dermott, Sandin, Liljegren. We don’t need to make a splash for a D, we just need someone that can play on the second pair. Look at teams outside the playoff race, look at non-top pair RHD. Gudas isn’t the only option, either. There’s Lovejoy in Jersey, he’s got some decent numbers on a floundering team and UFA this summer. Anaheim has Montour, maybe they’d be willing to talk about letting him go

    Tell me, friend, what do you think that trade would look like?
