Good bad and the ugly

Created by: Hale86
Initial Creation Date: Mar 7, 2021
Published: Mar 7 at 11:43
Team: 2021-22 Calgary Flames
Team Explanation
Perennial average team. Monahan & Gadreau better served as assets, time to drop other dead weight from leadership that have NEVER pushed this team over the top. Make up an injury ala Chicago (Hossa, Seabrook) to send Giordano to "LTIR" circumvention. NOT realistic but WOULD rejuvenate fanbase

after seeing Hall and Jack on the same lines in BUF, i wouldn't put them on the same line.

Valimaki will not be top pairing ready. Also where is Seattle's selection?

They can have whoever, guess Giordano could go there. Or maybe Kylington or whatever goalie they sign to be compliant.

Note: if above trades happen, not a tun of options to get quality from this team for Seattle.

Don’t think the Canucks want to take on Backlunds contract with all that term

If you swapped Hall + Eichel for Gadreau & Monahan, maybe as much of issue defensively as now. However hi end ability is better and may have top line with some energy against Oilers. Giordano is a shell of his former self now, imagine next year will be even worse. Looking at history of Benning trades actually think value is correct. Maybe a meaningless draft pick to Vancouver but already eating difference of salaries. Backlund is < based on age only, but NOT << Gaudet and you are watching a different game if you think thats true.

If you think above makes Flames worse, A) you haven't watched how poor this team has played since start of March 2019 (currently 2 more losses then wins in ~150 games, 3 total playoff wins out of 11 games). B) it will either make them better or worse. Either way is better result long term then being middle of the pack s is case for last 3 decades (1 miracle playoff run not withstanding). Takes a shot at actually having superstar talent on a team.

Disagree. Bennett is checked out and Backlund better days are behind him. Get a center that can win faceoffs and gain a blueline too.

Backlund is our most consistent player nearly every game. He doesn't have negative value

If the Sabres can’t win with Hall & Eichel,
why would they even bother trying with Monahan & Gaudreau?
There’s ZERO chance they’d trade Eichel for that
If they do trade Eichel, it’s bc they’re REBUILDING
So try packaging ALL prospects & young players, with multiple 1sts- bc that’s what other teams are gonna do
And your going to have to beat ALL those other offers

You're right. A 31yo declining center that costs 5.3m for 3 more years is exactly what the Canucks needs to become a contender.
