Looking forward to the press conference. Hope Benning and Green list the injuries, Myers and Hughes... plus who?

With the UFAs, I’d like to hear Benning say, “They’ve earn the right to explore the market. We will make offers to some of them, but due to Covid, the reduced salary cap and the expansion draft it has to work for both sides.”

I don’t want to hear Benning say, “We plan to sign Jacob Markstrom.”

I also want Benning to say, “I have several trades to announce. We’ve traded Brandon Sutter to Edmonton for their fifth round draft pick. They wanted a face-off checking centre. We’ve traded our third round pick and Loui Eriksson to Ottawa for their seventh round pick. They wanted to make the salary cap floor without actually spending to that floor. And we’ve traded Antoine Roussel to Toronto for their sixth round pick. They wanted some more grit to support their skill.”

I wouldn’t mind hearing Benning say, “We plan to resign all our RFAs.”

I’d also like to hear Benning say, “I have a couple signings to announce. We’ve signed Elias Petterson and Quinn Hughes to matching eight year, 72 million contracts.” Drops mic and walks off the stage a la Torts.

That’s not too much to ask for one press conference, is it?
We are all Jim Benning.

Stecher can be replaced within. Gaudette stays cause he’s a centre. Maybe Jake gets moved just to get rid of Eriksson. I’m ok with that. We are stacked on RW
I think Stecher will be traded. His value is high right now, and we probably won't be able to keep both him and Tanev. Plus we do need to give the youngsters some ice time. Stecher, and one of the animals for cap relief and a 5th?
The Cup is soooooo ours!!!!!!!

Yeah, I can see that happening. Think OJ will be given every opportunity to claim a spot next year. I think Virtannen's days are numbered too.

Or it could be something more >>> :idea: Mud slinging at the Knights? :lol:
After being beat by the knights, what possible ‘mud slinging’ Could they do?!??

And the was the last time ANY management team talked shit in a presser about another team?

Why post silly shit like that?

Doug Maclean weighs in:

"Probably let Markstrom walk, find a good second goalie. Sign Tanev for sure, he's a Canuck. Let Stecher, Virtanen and Toffoli go, replace Virtanen with MacEwen. Send Eriksson to the minors.

Yeah, but Eriksson would have to agree to the move. I guess we could 'convince' him that it is in his best interest to agree to the move.
Ottawa is at least in the NHL and a nicer city than Utica.

Only trouble with this is, Loui won't be going to Utica. Should he be sent to the minors look for Jim to work out an arrangement with Jim Nill for Loui to play for the Stars' AHL affiliate in the exciting music and culture hub of Austin Texas :D

Loui has his family stationed back in Dallas where he began his career. Look for Benning to show Loui the respect and concern for his family situation as a veteran that he would feel due him. And just remember, Sam Gagner was sent to hometown Toronto to play for the stacked powerhouse Marlies, a division rival of the Comets, despite the Comets' chronic dearth of centers. And this favor was done for no real reason other than Gagner's personal preference to bunk with his parents and wear his Maple Leaves jammies in his childhood bedroom. His wife was practicing law in Vancouver.

No, I don't expect Loui will ever feel the bite of those Mohawk Valley winter winds.
