You never liked Trouba people wanted him 2 years ago and you said he’s not worth that much .

I'm glad he's taking his time. Clearly the field wasn't impressive enough to hire a guy now. Wait for hockey to be over in the NHL, AHL and Worlds, talk to the most interesting guys.

👍

I would even explore a trade with Pittsburgh for Sullivan

Girgs for Sullivan

The “Nostalgia” video was a relevant comment on the merit of Pomminvilles play.

Your comment on Al Sharptons ability to spell is completely unrelated to the conversation or hockey, at all.

Be better.

Except that Simmonds can actually skate, hit, fight.

He brings more to the table than KO.

You would need to look at the advanced stats, which, doesn't seem like something you're gonna do

But he’s not going to be worth his new contract at all

If we had the option to switch the two sure everyone would do that

would you give up the later first rd pick to remove okposo from this roster?

I'm going to demonstrate how Trouba is a better defenseman than Ristolainen

This link shows, over a 3 year period, each man's ability to contribute to shots, possession for zone exits/entires, and entry defense ability.
https://public.tableau.co...5M94N7?:display_count=yes

The below graph shows EV shows offensive goals for, offensive expected goals, offensive corsi for, defensive expected goals and defensive corsi for. This is a clear indicator, backed up by the eye test, that Risto is clearly bad in his own end. He also does not contribute much in 5v5 scoring. His bread and butter has always been the power play. With more O-zone starts, it would be expected that his offensive analytics would rise.


Here's Risto's and Trouba's ability to control the blue line.

You're willing to give up all-star potential?

What if it's an Armia or Roslovic? Boy, you'll have egg on your face

His decline sadly began last year. He was one of my favorite fantasy players. But, inevitably, all of these power forwards decline so quickly. Backes, Lucic, Simmonds, Perry, Nash, Kunitz, Brown and so on. Signing these kind of guys to monster deals when they hit 28, 29... bad, bad news.

what happened

well, we're on a hockey board. People here want evidence to back up their case. I like Risto, doesn't mean I think he's good in his own end. Because he's not.

Thee you go saying I don't like a player again, you really don't think before you post. Never said I didn't lime him, he's not worth the farm and after how many years now, still has an issue with his contract and Winnipeg. The Rangers can have him.
