Flames accept that, surprised you dont want our 1st.

Edit* Oh I see Flames fan is OP

They should definitely keep Dube though, he's a proven team leader and that will be needed for them

The Blues can just sign Tatar, they're not giving four draft picks for a UFA.

1st round pick is on the wrong side of the Killorn trade.

Please a rational explanation for TB trade there is A no chance in hell Killorn has Buffalo on his approved list and B they'd give up assets to dump Killorn . There is absolutely no need to at this point.
It didn't cost TB a 1 to dump Johnson but when they don't have a need to dump any salary they give up a 1 to dump Killorn? Did Julien Briesbois become Brain dead all of a sudden?

i agree trade isn't going to happen, however the NTC is moot in this scenario. TB could waive him and Buffalo has first right to claim.

To bad TB doesn't do douchebag waives to get a player to take a trade they don't want. Not this ownership group anyway

They waived him to loose the contract not force him in to taking a trade he refused

Why would the Wild trade a potential lottery pick for a third line LW?

I feel like he was waived after nome of the teams he would accept a trade to said pass.
Isn’t waiving him to get rid of the contract the same as doing “douchbag” waives. I mean, being waived to beg rid of the player is being waived to get rid of the player.

Business at that point they didn't know the Kucherov injury and right before the season they needed to waive him to put him on the taxi squad that article clearly emphasizes my point it wasn't a accept or we waive you threat to get him to take a trade he didn't want.

Respectfully, i disagree. There was no taxi squad in the offseason. It was a waive to get rid of him. I don’t think either of us mentioned threats.
