That’s an ass backwards move letting Tanev walk and signing Barrie

The left side next season should read Edler, Hughes and Tryamkin

The right side - Myers, Tanev snd Stecher-(unfortunately)

When Edler walks Im hoping Juolevi is finally a mainstay. Hoping

Left side - Tryamkin, Hughes, Juolevi

Right side needs help after old men Myers and Tanev

This where the Boeser trade comes in

Agreed. There has been absolutely zero talk about an extention with him though so you would be far from stupid to draw a conclusion based on this lack of anything.

The whispers about Barrie and the void of any mention of resigning Chris is a worry

Boeser moved out (as long as TT is retained) for a emerging dman would be a fantastic redistribution of assets. Boeser for Dobson works for me

I'll put money on Boeser not being traded on Jim Benning's watch. If there were extreme health or performance issues, that might be different.
I think they try and resign Tanev. It might be a wee bit more term than what most would want to see. They might look at Barrie as well.
Rafferty gets plenty of positive reports and is involved in plenty of highlights however it is well noted by the people that cover the Comet's games
he has a problem with tape to tape passes to the wrong team. Great shot, good speed, it's all there except for that.

I think the chances of Toffoli signing here are 50/50 at best. My bet is he wants to give the market at least a look. He may have seen enough
to keep him here, can't say. I do know his old LA buddy Pearson is up at the end of the next season.

Word on the street regarding Rafferty is that he’d get eaten alive on the defensive side at the NHL level which is why he’s not getting the nod. Apparently the staff is working hard with him on that side of the game, one aspect they are working on with him is getting him to improve his pivoting, apparently it needs a ton of work

I tend to agree but I get the feeling Tanev wants more $$ + term than Jimmy wants to pay.

I'm not sure how interested Jimmy is in Barrie either.

Everyone knows Barrie wants to play in Vancouver.

Which is why, last summer, Sakic tried to trade him here.

And why, at the deadline, Dumbass tried to trade him here.

But Jimmy didn't pull the trigger either time... so just how interested is he?

Don't forget the Tree prefers the right side.

Also, I've heard Jimmy feels Rafferty will be NHL-ready next season.

This is why I'm personally penciling Raff in at #7.

Don't forget we have one more year of Benn, who plays both sides.

Stecher is gone baby gone.

Stecher should be gone but that is a worse blue line than the one they just played the season with.

Well who knows, maybe Tanev will end up agreeing to something reasonable.

Also, who knows how well Tree and Raffy will perform.
