Blockbuster with Calgary

Team: 2021-22 Buffalo Sabres
Team Explanation
I left the defense incomplete as there are plenty of options between re-signing McCabe and giving him the 'C', signing a UFA or 2 or with the draft capital acquired trading for one.
Plenty of cap space left to make any moves Adams sees fit to make.

  1. Gaudreau, Johnny
  2. 2022 2nd round pick (CGY)
Additional Details:
Unless Gaudreau signs an extension Reinhart will be an easier signing for Calgary than Gaudreau for Buffalo so I added the 2nd. Yes, Buffalo can trade Gaudreau at the TDL but you aren't going to get an equal player in return, mainly just draft picks which is a setback in my opinion.

    M NTC Lucic and Flames say no....easily.
    Good thought on the Reinhart/Gaudreau trade
    Don't think the Flames are interested in the Eichel trade. Change Tzachuk with Monahan. (then Sabres don't accept)
    Gee Arizona doesn't want all that cap for two average players.

    I get the idea behind 5 years at 5 mill for Dahlin (projecting forward) or HOPE.
    But my god he was absolutely awful this year. Alot of nights his analytical numbers were the worst in the league. Im not saying trade him or give up on him just trying to say 5mill is alot of money for a player that was among the worst defenceman in the league last year.

    Anyone else here consider Tkachuk to be more valuable than Eichel especially given his RFA status *show of hands* 🙋‍♂️ bueller bueller bueller

    ?

    Cherry picking a few bad nights is disingenuous

    Analytically he was very good this season as ever he ends the year with a 3.8% Corsi rel and a xGF rel around 2 in the positive also ~ 50th in D pts/60

    From 2018-20 he was also similarly good

    What on earth is everyone going on about 🤨

    This is an article by Travis Yost explaining what i mean. His game and numbers were not good last year. Again im not saying this is a major concern , im connecting this concern with the arm chair Gm post of 5 years at 5 mill contract for player that hasnt played at a 5 year 5 mill pace. Next year he might play at a 7 mill 5 year pace

    Im also not saying that a 5 year 5 mill contract wouldnt work out to be an amazing contract for Buffalo. Im simply saying hes not worth 5 years at 5 mill as we type today.
