For a backup probably McElhinney or Dubnyk. There's not much meat left on the bone.


McElhinney is atrocious, don't sign him. Take Dubnyk every day of the week.

McElhiney is a Canes legend, though and he was really good here. Those ones always get bonus points.

Also a leafs legend will never forget that save on Crosby. I know we waived him but if you were in Dubas shoes it was a risk worth taking as Sparks could have been like Ned was in Carolina. To bad it didnt work out

Calgary is going to be a playoff team next year, mark my words. Markstrom is going to rebound, and they are stacked offensively.


Ehh, I dunno. That team was incredibly meh last year, they lost Giordano to Seattle. I don't think Coleman and Zadorov will change things THAT much. They should do more to that core.

I know I'll sound super biased, but Matthews and Marner are WAY too low. Mostly Matthews, there is no way you can consider him not a top 5 forward.


I agree. imo Matthews and MacKinnon arent very far apart - I would still give a slight edge to MacKinnon but Matthews is right behind him. Depending on how next season goes Matthews could be considered the 2nd best C in the league by next year

Now that the Flames have traded for Zadorov's rights and signed Coleman we still need to snag a backup. Who's the best available?


Trade might be an option.

I know deals between the Flames and Oilers are weird but if the free agent options aren't appealing, Stalock can be yours for a 7th.

I do that sometimes by posting that screenshot to my burner twitter account with no followers and then copy the image URL.

A king's ransom, plus one of Tyson Jost/J.T. Compher/Bowen Byram


?

Those 3 pieces you mentioned all have drastically different values

Agreed. Mack often drives play better while Matthews has the better shot and goal scoring ability. Will need to wait and see how far matthews will go. Cause his defensive game is getting much better than it was before. But rn Mack is better in almost all aspects of being a center

Like if we go by rank rn im at

1. Mcdavid
2. Crosby
3. Mackinnon
4. Matthews
5. Draisaitl

I would say Arizona probs would want Jost and some picks as getting a young guy makes sense

That's a good idea, but I don't have an account on twitter. I just want to find a way to get the URL from a screenshot I downloaded to paste it into the Image URL thing on capfriendly to make a post.

Well you get that URL by posting it somewhere online. Twitter is easiest as creating a burner is so hassle free.

It’ll be interesting to see that line without Hyman. Toronto media has been gassing Hyman for the past few seasons and that he helps the big boys a lot so we’ll see

Could Ullmark work? I know he probably wants to be a starter but that could be a good tandem

Teams should refrain from running $10+M tandems in my opinion. Ullmark's baseline should be a 4x4 unless the market completely bottoms out on him. Dubnyk really is the Flames' only option right now without requiring a trade.

What an absolute headscratcher. There being no side deal with Columbus is sickeningly poor management on the Kraken's behalf.
