And yet, Nelson, while doing nothing, has the 2nd most goals on the team (16), and is tied for 2nd in +/- with a +16.

He's been great on both sides of the puck. Sign him and add a 2/3 C and build the team down the middle.

Btw, ETA in Fl. is 2/3

He's been A LOT better this season. He is playing responsible 2-way hockey, which is more important than going into an occasional scoring drought. I agree that his history is that of someone who starts fast, then disappears in the 2nd half, but as long as his line is scoring more goals than it is giving up, then he's worth re-signing.........regardless of whether his future is as a 2C or a 3C.

Of course, I would feel better if Lou re-signed him sooner rather than later.

- JohnScammo

That to me is the best part of his game and it’s noticeable. Was hoping Trotz would have that effect on him. The problem is this is Nelson’s pay day and how much money do you pump into what I hope is our eventual 3rd line center? If he continues playing this way that’s where he should most likely be imo I’d rather someone with a little more scoring running our 2nd line and pp unit.

I guess it depends on Lou's progress in finding a 2C. Until he does, Nelson's the guy.

Absolutely hence the “I hope” part in my post😂

Point being we can’t pump too much money into him imo.

Was listening to the new Spittin Chiclets on the way home today and they had Dustin Penner on. He's (frank)ing hilarious and was talking about how brutal the EDM fans were. He said Reasoner was walking out to the ice once and a guy leaned down and asked him if the "A" on his jersey stood for "AHL"

If Panarin would get on board with a sign and trade I have zero problem moving high picks and prospects out the door to make sure we acquire him. If it means we don't have to get into a bidding war with the Rags for him I think it's a smart move. Plus he's going to help us in a playoff run this year. Moving a 1st, Wahlstrom and another pick or prospect is more than worth it.

I tend to be more of a defensive minded person also. If we don;t end up moving in on Panarin but we have a chance to find a top pairing D-man with some term left, THAT would get me more than excited. Boner Jams '19.

He’s not wrong. Oiler fans are (frank)ing savages for the most part.

“The biggest thing is if I don’t have an answer for them I would expect that they’ll make a move,” Duchene said Thursday. “You can’t really afford to let guys go for nothing anymore in this league, or probably ever; you couldn’t do that. I understand that’s the situation.

“At the end of the day, I need to be sure of what I’m doing and it’s a process right now that I’m evaluating. It’s not an easy one because it’s the first time I’ve ever been in this situation. It’s really hard to make in mid-season. I’m taking my time, as much time as I have here, and I’ll see what happens. But we’re not at that point yet.”

I see EK mentioned Martinez from LA and the Isles. Would have liked a younger Martinez. I'm not sure how much the Isles would have to give up and how much Martinez would move the needle at this point?

I'd think he'd seriously solidify our defense. This wouldn't be a terrible move. Wouldn't cost a whole lot to do this, either.

No question Martinez would help during a playoff run. Just wish he was not 31.

True and Martinez would certainly make sense if he will not cost a lot. Martinez would not fold during a tough playoff series.
