I doubt Calgary is going to just sell all assets just because Gaudreau left. Their rhetoric hasn’t been a whole lot of catastrophizing, I bet they try to stay relevant, and considering the division they’re in, I don’t blame them. Point is, I’d bet Calgary hangs on to Tkachuk. I certainly would. But even if they do sell on Tkachuk, how many assets would we need to sell for him? I’d bet easily north of Räty, a 1st, a 2nd and Beauvillier.
And honestly, I’d rather miss the playoffs this year than make the next Andrew Ladd signing. I bet we get one or two good years out of Kadri until leaves us with five years of cap hell. With his style of play, he’ll age way too quickly, especially playing Islanders hockey. Let another team get ripped off.
