If we sign Markstrom 6x6we not only have him on the books past his expiry date we probably lose Demko. I'd love Tanev back but the term was suspect. The only one I really wanted back was TT and I wanted us to dump Virtanen. But in two years I would be clamouring for TT to be gone.
The drop off was inevitable but I didn't think they would look this bad. I mean they look bad.Not even close to looking not bad. They look like they have tuned out coaching. I have always supported Green but I think he has lost the team.
I didn’t like the term on Tanev or Jacob. But signing Jacob doesn’t mean they lose Demko. After his show in the post season he would have returned a late first or a good prospect.
Maybe they sign Marky to a five year deal at 7 per. He’s got 4 or 5 good years left. He has low miles for a 30 year old.
Tanev will give the Flames two good seasons and probably another solid one. Maybe in his last year he fades. He’s a guy who plays with his head so I think he’ll always be a useful player if he’s healthy. Perhaps he would have signed a three year deal here but rumour is Canucks only offered a two year deal.
Toffoli waited around for days for an offer. Maybe he takes shorter term. The big problem I have is that Benning had a one track mind trying to deal for OEL. He’s even come out and said “we ran out of time”
He apparently hardly communicated with any of the UFA. They’ve all come out and said this. I can see why some of the guys on the team might be a bit pissed.
Like WTF man. You ran out of time. Do your job and multi task. Instead he dyed his hair, shoved his finger in his ass and chugged a Mickey.
