What’s worse? Troy Stencher and his comedy of bumbling errors in the d-zone or Tyler Myers?

Good question. I'd have to take tiny Troy and that is a testament to how shitty TM actually is

Outlandish trade proposal...

Miller and Stillman

For

Barzal



Obviously it's a buy low scenario as MB hasn't lit it up like he can but he's, younger faster, more skilled and wants to be a canuck

Stillman added is just to get that clown the fuck outta here

The only reason it's outlandish is because Barzal is that much younger, therefore you'd need to throw in a pick or prospect.

If you are going to make this type of trade you do it now while both teams have plenty of season in front of them.

We trade Miller for Barzal we lose a lot of goal scoring. A lot. Barzal is an ASSists Man

Maybe but the speed and creativity Barzal would bring adds more to the pot than Millers goals

Next season: Barzal 9.15m, Miller 8m

Also:

Miller has no trade protection until July 2023.

Barzal has no trade protection until July 2024.

So it's plausible.

Ideally though I'd like to get a cheaper center, a pure #3C PK/scorer/faceoff guy, to help unload the pressure off Horvat, +get another 2023 1st, and a top dman prospect.

While definitely true, I think that you move Miller if anything remotely like this comes your way. I just have a feeling we are going to be hating his contract by the time we are nearing the end of it's second season.

And that was the price last summer that nobody was willing to pay.

Why would they pay it now after he is worse??

Like the great Donny said, we. dont. know. what was offered or not, it's all conjecture, like how the canucks turned down Lundqvist, 1st, Chytil.
“From what we can gather, it was essentially Nils Lundkvist, a first-round pick, and Filip Chytil,” said Shah. “Now, there’s some talk about [Vitali] Kravtsov… but it was very evident, whether these pieces were altogether or not, that the Rangers were not offering Braden Schneider… We don’t know how far it got.”

And now JT would be moved in what is essentially a sign and trade for a point per game almost, big winger/center.

The acquiring team doesn't have to worry about him leaving via UFA, he'll be a long-term solution for em.

Honestly, I think Miller could still be moved after christmas. He has n o protection this year, and a team that is on the rise, looking for a veteran who still produces with cost certainty could be interested. In this situation, JT is still worth a 1st (unprotected -- or even 2 seconds), a second line player or 2nd pairing defenceman and a prospect. Not the return some were hoping for, but it clears the contract, gets assets back, and keeps the team young. While I dont believe in 'full tank', this team still needs to be structured and finish the rebuild. we are not there yet.
I agree :D

Do you believe Tri- Cities Barzal’s $9.2 million and his no goals is more palatable?

Chef: do you believe Barzal is merely an 8 goal scorer or just a slumping star who might be available given his early struggles?

I am pretty confident if we were able to squire him away from weird Lou we would have a top level 70-80 point center who can fly
