I’m aware, check the description and team name.. GM Mode and you’d just need like a 2nd to get that through 😂 for real though what is the value on Turcotte who was 5th overall what 2 years ago, but hasn’t really had the chance to stick in the NHL yet especially with all of the centers in front of him?

Not based on skill for sure, more based on line mates, the Skinner-Thompson-Tuch line has been dynamite for the Sabres this season so I don’t think they’d be too keen on rearranging that IMO

In the world that I’ve created this masterful team he is, consider it like the multiverse.

Kings have the three centers set with Kopitar, Danault and Byfield. The question will be of Kupari, Vilardi, and Turcotte, who will be able to play wing and eventually take a center role once Kopitar retires. All three are still in the running, but the Kings won't move any of these three unless it gives them a top-LD they have been coveting (Chychrun) or an elite level top-liner. The Kings understand they'd have to add more, but they have the assets to get something like that done.

He's not available but if a sweet offer comes you should at least hear them out. But I would still say no maybe when is current contracts over

It would have to be a ridiculously sweet offer he is by far their best player at their weakest position and still has the best QO of the big RFA's.
So sweet No GM with an IQ higher than a racquetball would make.

??? There’s not really a significant difference in minutes between the first and second lines.. swap the Malkin line with the Thompson line. There isn’t really one part of this that’s realistic unless it’s on NHL 22 I feel like I said that in the description..

One is a generational talent. One is not.

Thanks, I know that. I said that Thompson was on the first line “NOT” because he’s better, but because of the chemistry with the other players on that line. I obviously know that Malkin has been a superstar player for his entire career and Thompson’s breakout season is still just under a PPG.. I also already said that you could swap the top two lines if it helps you sleep better
