  1. Off-season is different than deadline because of the cap. But, to your point, I don't believe he gets the value some may be thinking. He may be good to get something done in a package. Even if it just sheds from our own cap.
  2. Only if he makes it through the expansion draft. He's perfect to leave exposed. Though my preference is they take JVR
  3. Last comment on Patrick (until my next one): it's quite possibly he still has something to provide and this coming year is his turn around year with a strong offseason and the confidence of having come off a season without something falling off of him. This is exactly why I move him NOW while there may still be other GMs that believe this is possible and before the inevitable proves otherwise. He's a 4C on this team and that's it. Move him now and possibly get a more useful asset than that while you can and move on. I wish him the best, but I see no fire in him let alone even a
  4. Yeah, I do that, as well. And I like Sanheim more than most here (horrible season), but this seems like a no-brainer.
  5. I think that's a refreshing take on things. Well said.
  6. Just happy with "barely competent #4 center" from him at this point. But maybe #3. I don't know if I'd go so far as "average #3."

  8. Okay, now I remember the screen name! I wondered while mowing my lawn and was coming here specifically to ask if you were actually named Ken and married to GolfPro Barbie. #AnybodyNeedaLexus?
  9. "Smarmy" is a running joke from the old board when someone clawed me up and down because I was a "smarmy bas***d." The good old days (they weren't wrong).
  10. Say it again a few times. No one has ever accused me of being a smart cookie. Maybe a smart a##...
  11. Alright Pissy McPissypants, I get your point. It's a good one, and I agree in big picture. But give us 10 minutes to be excited about a kid, would'ya? Mine isn't because of the 3 games, though it was brief confirmation of what I saw in WCJ and college. It's because of WCJ & college I know, it's college. It's not the Bumbfk Bears in the WHL or something. But he really stood out in the WCJ tourney. And in Michigan. So give us 10 minutes. On the other hand, I do think what you're saying is valid particularly as it relates to the Provy comparisons. Be
  12. Thank you. I saw the typo right before seeing this (based on mojo's quote). I'm irritated with it and can't edit.
  13. Agreed! And stop with the penalties every time you're on the ice! A lot of that was due to malaise/laziness rather than being overly-aggressive.
  14. I think it's very possible that Myers is sophomore season syndrome. Lindblom and Patrick came from the type of injuries they had with predictable issues with stamina. I mean, the length of time they were out and from what and they come back with no camp, no practice time, 3-4 games/week, etc., and then throw in a bout with COVID, ever-changing linemates, etc. I know hockey players are supposed to be superhuman, but Jesus... Provorov clearly will not likely be THE guy on defense. He'll be very good (and has proven to be) if the weight of leading the crew is not on
  15. Fixed it for you. If we trade him this summer, you can guarantee what you describe will happen. He'll have the proof he needs regarding durability and improve. A season with some days of respite between games will also help. On the other hand, if we keep him he'll continue to be a car crash victim on skates. That's all the pessimist Flyer-fan in me, but I'm conditioned that way.
  16. I'm with you. The other possibility (I prefer your way) is to trade this year's first to a top five picker but for NEXT year or the year after. I don't think Detroit, for example, will be much better. Same with Buffalo. Probably San Jose. The Kings and Ducks won't be there yet, but maybe. Anything that gets a crack at an extra set of ping pong balls next year or the year after.
  17. Way too much for Jones, IMO. But I suppose something along those lines. In my mind, Patrick is just a throw in there, and that's probably what we'll need to do with him. But i don't think it would take Sanheim and TWO picks.
  18. I don't think we have a lack of talent. I do think we have a damaged psyche as a team, and I truly believe the that stems from the top (VeeGees). Exchanging some of the vets for other vets just for a new start will help downstream quite a bit. Aside from the VeeGees, it's time to give up on Patrick. Just move on already. I mean, he's finally had an okay year but even the Blackhawks had the good sense to cut bate from Ryan Hartman. I realize there's a difference between #30 and #2, but it's still a first round pick and they moved quickly. We've waited until we might get
  19. McTavish or Eklund would be fine.. But this would be the rare time I would consider trading the pick.
