Especially since the most we could sign him for is 7.

They think the problem with this team is with the right side of our defense, there are so many more problems.
- A_SteamingLombardi


It’s the major problem

No offence & no depth
Trade Tanev & what’s left?

Top 6 wingers is the other big problem but can be done by committee. Not a great thing but easier to fix.

We cannot have Hutton Biega & Schenn all in the mix & expect much production.
LW sniper is a big hole.
More top 6 playmaking needed.

Hutton improved but is behind Hughes & Edler with OJ nearing readiness to take his job. If he doesn’t see that coming & only Edler retiring gives him an opportunity to be fulltime that’s not good for him. He is not a top 4 LHD. The contract he wants won’t be justified. Trade him is his & our only option. Schenn is fine as a 6-7 stop gap D. Biega plays out of necessity further exacerbating the problem our need for a top 4 RHD.

RHD is a BIG problem & is not easily fixed nor cheap in any trade. Trouba stands out but at what cost? Fox is my choice but til we know if he’s looking for top 4 minutes which he would get here or is it a team specific reason he won’t sign in Carolina is yet TBD. Stecher as a top 2 RHD is weak if Tanev is moved & why Tanev is more valuable to us than to other teams. I can live with him as top 4 but even that isn’t awe inspiring. He’s a gutsy hard worker but that is his max ceiling if even that. If he can consistently hit 40 pts then he fits. Woo could be a future top 4 but that’s 2-3yrs away & good depth looking ahead. Rafferty & Teves are interesting signings. Rafferty probably groomed as a 3rd pair RHD. Teves maybe as a bottom pairing LHD ir 7th. Neither imo have top 4 potential nor a realistic opportunity to be one.

A healthy Sven is a top 6 or 9 LW but his conc history is concerning. Pearson suits me fine in a top 6 LW role. Leivo top 9 unless a full season of growth dictates otherwise but i don’t expect him being top 6. Lind on the farm is getting better. He could be a top 9 LW unless he breaks out & pushes for top 6. That’s a lofty hope.

RW is ok with BB & leaves it to JV to get it together. Gads gets his skating on par with NHL standards could be a fine top 9-12 winger. Jury is out on if he ever makes it. If he pans out then good net front presence option & the size to be a 3rd wheel for grit & protection.

Summary:
Trades are needed. Hutton gone
Draft more RHD-Soderstrom Seider
LW needs a healthy sniper
RW somebody has to take the ball
Prospects are ok but not earth shaking making impact as top 6 F or top 4 D.

Madden Rathbone are looking great.
Lockwood hard to say at this time.
Dipietro very interesting.

leaf fans will say that the league is out to get them and its garbage

I actually thought 3-5 games was pretty lenient for a blatant and purposeful crosscheck to the head.

He is terribly overrated - I’d burn my Granlund jersey if we offfered him a contract
- CanuckDon

So many jumped on me for having him as the 6th best Dman in the league in the summer. He still scores as a crazy rate.

I don't really like how the refs allowed it to get that far.
