<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>arafay</b></div><div>I really hope mcdavid plays out his contract in edm for your sake. You are about to be very disappointed otherwise.

The upgrade from scheifele to mcdavid is nice but not worth that much. That only makes the team trading for mcdavid worse, not better (which kills the point) and gms know that.</div></div>

I'm a Leafs fan. Doesnt effect me at all.

I'm looking at historical evidence. When a generational talent is traded it's for franchise altering pieces. Look at those trades. Look at the Gretzky trade. Remember they also sent a tonne of money too.

To get this generations superstar for term you'll have to release a couple lower level stars and a lot of future

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Ryryguy4</b></div><div>Oilers fan here, i think most of those trades are reasonable. The marleau one is especially creative. Its probably a lot more movement than any one team would make in an offseason, especially with the same coach and management team, but nonetheless, very creative.

I think the Zaitsev deal will need to be tweaked. With Vancouver doing better last year than they thought, and with the expectation they will start to compete going forward, i don't know that the "extras" that you have would get the deal done. To me they would probably want picks or a salary going the other way to facilitate this trade due to Zaitsev's term remaining.


The only other trade that gave me pause was the NJ trade. i know its salary dump but you could get way more for kadri in my opinion, especially from some western canadian teams. He would be a perfect fit for the oilers for example. Kadri would probably get you larsson, a prospect, and a 2nd minimum. i suspect though the leafs could do better still.

As an oilers fan i think the brown trade is doable at that valuation, though i suspect they would want to move out a contract. Benning seemed to be the thought at the deadline.</div></div>

The brown/Benning trade is one that we all have offered up.... it will happen in some itteration this summer

The NJ for me was taking an under used asset, and plug 3 holes with it. a) a RHC who can PK (hyman out/brown gone) b)wood brings that pest element we lose in Kadri, Santinin RHD depth. For NJ they have 2 young C's (Nico/Hughes) Kadri can help insulate, Petan gives them speed on the wing, Holl throw in

If the Oil would deal AL + Brodziak + Benning + Bear for Kadri + Brown (or something like this) i could see a blockbuster happening

1. FIND A SAFE LOCATION
As soon as you realize you have a flat tire, do not abruptly brake or turn. Slowly reduce speed and scan your surroundings for a level, straight stretch of road with a wide shoulder. An empty parking lot would be an ideal place. Level ground is good because it will prevent your vehicle from rolling. Also, straight stretches of road are better than curves because oncoming traffic is more likely to see you.

Never attempt to change your tire on a narrow shoulder near oncoming traffic. Keep moving (slowly) until you find a safer spot. While driving on a flat risks ruining your rim, replacing a rim is better than being hit by an inattentive driver.

Make sure to consult your owner’s manual and review their specific steps on how to change a flat tire for your vehicle

2. TURN ON YOUR HAZARD LIGHTS
Your hazard lights or “flashers” will help other drivers see you on the side of the road. To avoid an accident, turn them on as soon as you realize you need to pull over.

3. APPLY THE PARKING BRAKE
Once stopped, always use the parking brake when preparing to replace a flat tire. This will minimize the possibility of your vehicle rolling.

4. APPLY WHEEL WEDGES
Wheel wedges go in front of or behind the tires to further ensure the vehicle doesn’t roll while you fix the flat tire. If you’re changing a rear tire, place these in front of the front tires. If your flat tire is at the front, put the wheel wedges behind the rear tires.

Bricks or large stones will work just as well as “real” wheel wedges. Just be sure they’re large enough to stop the car from rolling.

5. REMOVE THE HUBCAP OR WHEEL COVER
If your vehicle has a hubcap covering the lug nuts, it’s easier to remove the hubcap before lifting the vehicle with the jack. If your lug nuts are exposed, you can skip ahead to Step 6.

Use the flat end of your lug wrench to remove the hubcap. This will work for most vehicles, but some hubcaps need a different tool to come off. Consult your owner’s manual for proper hubcap or wheel cover removal procedures.

6. LOOSEN THE LUG NUTS
Using the lug wrench, turn the lug nuts counterclockwise until you break their resistance. You may have to use force, and that’s ok. Use your foot or all of your body weight if necessary.

Loosen the lug nuts about ¼ to ½ of a turn, but don’t remove them completely yet. Save that for when it’s time to remove your tire/wheel from the vehicle.

7. PLACE THE JACK UNDER THE VEHICLE
The right place for the jack is usually beneath the vehicle frame alongside the tire that’s flat. Many vehicle frames have molded plastic on the bottom with a cleared area of exposed metal specifically for the jack. To safely lift and avoid damage to the vehicle, follow the instructions for jack placement in your vehicle owner’s manual.

8. RAISE THE VEHICLE WITH THE JACK
To prevent the jack from settling under the weight of your vehicle and coming off balance, place a small cut of 2x6” wood beneath it before attempting to raise your vehicle. This tactic is especially helpful on asphalt.

With the jack properly positioned, raise the vehicle until the flat tire is about six inches above the ground.

Never put any part of your body under the vehicle during or after raising the vehicle with the jack.

9. UNSCREW THE LUG NUTS
Now it’s time to remove the lug nuts all the way. Since you've already loosened them, you should be able to unscrew them mostly by hand.

10. REMOVE THE FLAT TIRE
Gripping the tire by the treads, pull it gently toward you until it’s completely free from the hub behind it. Set it on its side so that it doesn’t roll away.

11. MOUNT THE SPARE TIRE ON THE LUG BOLTS
Now place the spare on the hub by lining up the rim with the lug bolts. Push gently until the lug bolts show through the rim.

12. TIGHTEN THE LUG NUTS BY HAND
Put the lug nuts back on the lug bolts and tighten them all the way by hand. Once they are all on, check each one again, tightening as much as possible. You will tighten them with the wrench after lowering the vehicle to the ground.

13. LOWER THE VEHICLE AND TIGHTEN THE LUG NUTS AGAIN
Use the jack to lower the vehicle so that the spare tire is resting on the ground but the full weight of the vehicle isn’t fully on the tire. At this point, you should tighten the lug nuts with the wrench, turning clockwise, as much as you can. Push down on the lug wrench with the full weight of your body.

14. LOWER THE VEHICLE COMPLETELY
Bring the vehicle all the way to the ground and remove the jack. Give the lug nuts another pull with the wrench to ensure they’re as tight as possible.

15. REPLACE THE HUBCAP
If the hubcap you took from the flat tire will fit your spare, put it in place the same way you removed it initially. If it doesn’t fit, stow it away with the tire when you stow your equipment.

16. STOW ALL EQUIPMENT
You have before you a jack, a lug wrench, wheel wedges, your flat tire, and possibly a hubcap. Don’t forget to put all of them in your vehicle before driving away.

17. CHECK THE PRESSURE IN THE SPARE TIRE
You should check the tire pressure of the spare tire to make sure that it is safe to drive on. “T-Type” temporary spares, also called “mini-spares,” require 60 psi (420 kPa). If the tire needs pressure, drive (slowly) to a service station immediately.

18. TAKE YOUR FLAT TIRE TO A TECHNICIAN
Temporary spare tires aren’t made to drive long distances or at high speeds, so drive cautiously until you’re able to visit a tire technician. A professional should be able to determine whether your tire needs a repair or if it’s time to replace it.
