<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>gordfish</b></div><div>You have to wonder why Boeser would sign that deal. So it takes him to UFA...so does 2 years at the QO on the deal the team signed him to. And I don't get any sense that he has interest in signing long term. It's almost June, if he was going to extend, he'd likely have done it by now. He's in the driver's seat on this, and the smart thing for him to do is sign the QO. Smart thing for the team is to trade him, and bring in a second line winger at money that fits the role. Boeser would likely welcome a deal that puts him closer to home, anyways.
When has signing a high scoring European that hasn't played in North America by the age of 25 ever worked out? Granted, my memory ain't what it used to be, but I think you have to go back to Larionov and Makarov. It does not work. Personally, I hope Kuzmenov wastes someone else's time. And that's what it will cost this team. More wasted time.
That Rathbone / Myers pairing would scare the hell out of me if I were Demko. No thanks. OEL and Myers were fine together, leave them alone and get a top pairing RHD for Hughes to play with (no disrespect to Schenn, he's done a great job). Let Rathbone earn his way into a top 4 role.
Sorry, I just don't see how that team gets them any closer to contention.</div></div>
Intent is the process of 1st getting the cap in a position of flexibility. The roster should push for a PO spot. During the offseason trades can still occur if the price is met. The TDL will be next up when it’s known if real improvement or not has happened. JR indicated need for better structure & this will determine his course of action on what unfolds.
