Director of Hockey Ops and VP, i'm all for that.

That would be a perfect fit in my opinion.

I do think the Sabres are grooming krueger for that position though?

casey may end up being a winger

After he gains about 30 lbs. because he's not a 2nd line center. I would have no problem including him in any deal to make this team better.

how about sending him to Pitts with the late 1st rounder we have for Malkin? Would you take 3 years of malkin at 9+ mil a year? I think I would... I think Malkin gets traded this summer...

Edit: before anyone kills me for that proposal, I think it would take more then just that....

You're way off on Duchene and if we were a playoff team this year, he would be a Sabre now. That is a fact.
- SABRES 89

58 points in 50 games as a number one center for production is pretty damn good in ottawa

higher ppg then jack had as a center last season and he didn't have a 40 goal scorer on his wing


not to mention, duchene is fast, and botts wants a fast team


I think duchene is better for the next 6 or 7 years then skinner

You're way off and he will get 8-10 a year because that's the going rate. Eichel needs all the help he can get.
- SABRES 89



What's the local feel on will karlsson?

I think he would make a good fit as 2c/3c with mitts for the next 5 or 6 years.

I'm sure the fans like him, what about management?

Any chance they move him?

If your Vegas I'm asking for 7oa and 29oa maybe plus

They want to keep him, they are talking about moving out a few other to keep him long term.

risto, reinhart and 2020 first for malkin and letang


(hides)

- homiedclown

I don't think I would do that, too much injury history with Leteng. I can't see Malkin waiving to come here.

I like duchene too, but its gonna be 7 x 10 most likely.

What team wouldn't want a guy like him and not have to trade any assets?

I think Buffalo is a tough sell though, unless krueger gets players more interested in joining our losing team.


Funny to sit back and compare phail lousley to krueger.

Ralph has more experience across the board.
Love the nickname ",dos equis"
The most interesting man in hockey

That nickname is gonna stick

You would trade Lafreniere for 3 years of Geno and Letang?

I think will karlson is a 2 year wonder now?

Also , has only missed 2 games in the past 4 seasons.

He really did have some low point years though

Ok, let’s just take Duchene’s name out of it for a minute

And even speculate that Casey does get moved to the wing

Should we be trying to pay a 2C that’ll score 60points 9-10mil per year???
That just seems like a really bad idea to me

Malkin doesn’t make us a Cup contender,
we’d just be wasting him
Need a younger guy

William Karlsson (if Vegas would trade him) would be the perfect fit

crosby/malkin


yeah a bad idea to go out and get a fast center who put up 58 points in 50 games for the sens, esp for a gm that wants a fast upbeat team

You should never sign a UFA to be a core piece or your team.

Oh it's a terrible idea..... this team and this board just ran a 2C out of town making 7.5M a year who averaged 65-70 pts a year.


Same board who cries about him being gone now too.
