The Leaves need to break up the Big 4 up front.
I agree but Dumbass promised those guys he wouldn't trade any of them.
(part of the reason they call him "Dumbass)
Yeah. Smart asset management when Matthews is gonna bolt as a free agent. Toronto will have to throw ridiculous cheddar at him to keep him there.....and we've all seen how blowing the wad looks so far in the COTU.
If dumbass was smart he would move Matthews at the draft to AZ. However they don't have much to send back the other way this year, and no way does Dumbass survive trading Matthews away for the return that AZ could send without an incoming top 5 pick in the current draft as part of the package.....which the Coyotes don't have.
If he had half a brain he would call Dale Tallon in Florida where rumors are circulating that they are wanting to change up the core.
Matthews and Nylander to the Cats for Barkov and Ekblad.
Trade high on Matthews before his value is tanked for being a headcase. Dump the softie. Maintain your roster make-up of 2 top line centers, but now do it for 30% less the cap hit. Add a top pairing all-situations defenseman.
Fortuantely Dubass is too stupid to do this, and if Tallon has two pieces he should be keeping it's Barkov and Ekblad.....however Tallon has made bold moves in the past.
