I just find it interesting that a team that usually goes with vets over youth now has all three of bports best in their lineup. I think they’re lookin to see what they’ve got. I see Lou making moves in January
- kindlyrick

Maybe. Kind of wish they did earlier in the season to push the competition and have a better idea of what we had in them by now.

Would rather Seguin if he really became available. Not looking good in Dallas right now if they don’t make the playoffs this season you would have to think there will be some big changes as far as personnel whether Benn plays for the owner or not is irrelevant he’s still the owner😂

I’d take Benn in a heartbeat. Seguin will be banging Hofstra girls in his first week.

Maybe, but that's pretty risky. $9.5M until 2025 and he's already 29.

You obviously haven’t seen enough of Benn. I’d give (frank)ing near anything to have him on my squad.

I would take a chance on that mess.

He’s talented for sure. Super talented. I just don’t think Lou strikes me as the kind of guy who will put up with his partying.

Yup. 30 goal/70 point power forward who excells in all situations, whether it be evens, shorthanded or PP. Scores big time goals and isn’t afraid to drop gloves and kick ass. There isn’t a single thing he doesn’t do well.

They didn’t have their legs in the first and were trying to be a bit too fancy with their passing up until the third when they got back to simplifying their game and playing the way they should. They have some momentum hopefully they can translate that into a win tonight. Buffalo seems to have settled down huge two points tonight it’d be good to gain some more ground Tavares notwithstanding.
- Cptmjl


Yes the first was brutal.

I want the two points and could care less about Pajama Putz. Hope Boychuck destroys him legally of course.

Unfortunately that's the market right now. You have to over pay the top players later in their career to get them at their prime.

He says that but I’m pretty certain he’s the one that got it going chirping the Sens bench😂
- Cptmjl


I think he said that because Martin creamed Chabot after a Senator hit Barzal and the Sens wanted Martin to answer the bell for that. He did

I would rather the kid that won the Calder to have a five point night and win the game.
- Cptmjl


MDC needs it more so he can stay. Barzal can get 5 points the next Leafs game.

Lee will get jealous.

One thing is Benn will not have to worry about Isles ownership calling him out.

Maybe Lou and Trotz are the two dudes that can straighten him out if need be. Besides the Hofstra girls of course.

Would love to move Eberle and keep all 3 players up the rest of the year. Eberle is not needed and should not be signed to a big deal. Get what you can for him.
- ses111

Ridiculous to think Eberle is not needed with this current roster. Hasn’t been playing great this year but still better then most guys on the current roster

Not needed might not be the right word, but team has done well without getting much from him. I rather find out about MDC and Ho Sang. Does not make sense to sign Eberle so why not get something for him? Tough decisions need to be made and might as well get a good look at Toews, JHS, and MDC while the team is going good.

If there’s no intention of signing him which may be the case if you could significantly upgrade the team in some way in some sort of package with him than you do it or even futures imo if one of the kids winds up sticking. I understand your point being we have no real depth but if we’re not keeping the guy I’d rather get something back for him if we can.

Its not that he isn't needed, but more of don't let him walk for nothing. This was a throw away year as soon as pajama boy walked. They aren't winning the cup so the focus has to be longer term.

I'm guessing Ebs will be asking for a raise. Are you going to give him $7-8 mil for 7 years? That's even if he's willing to sign with the Isles.

Even if they can get a 2nd and other picks for Eberle. They can use the picks and prospects if they need to make a trade for a better 2C in the offseason. I rather the Isles get something back for an upcoming UFA. I know the Isles will need to hold onto Nelson and risk losing him. I think it's different the Eberle as the Isles have more depth at wing.

This! Trading Eberle does not even mean any hope of the playoffs is lost. This is still not a Cup year and you are all in and it does not matter losing someone like Eberle for nothing.

If they were out of it sure but unless you’re getting something back that’s gonna help you now or long term you dont get rid of him just to make room for a guy who for the most part has been a bust up until a couple of months ago
