<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>drambui</b></div><div>you can argue all you want that the things i mentioned are not important dude, but is not based on my opinion, and your doesnt matters, its based on actual data made by people who knows this way more than mr and you. so have fun arguing all you want about that.
and just to answer your question, jake been was traded for a second, alex petrovic was trafef for a third in recent years. i could probably find more.
here you go. point proven. once again, i dont care even a little bit what you think about him, data shows that the most important metric for trade value and past comparable for holl is probably atleast a third and not a cap dump like you say. hey maybe he will get traded for a 4th instead who knows. he will likely not even be traded at all so we will never know. and please next time if you have a question just do your own research.</div></div>
yes, because I use my own opinion, or am I using this information off of guys like Micah McCurdy who is the advanced data analytic member of the Toronto maple leafs. Why has their been so many advanced analytics people hired by NHL teams every team has 1 except for Seattle at the moment. So you trying to tell me it's my opinion and it doesn't matter great debate tactic, but falls short when it's not actually true.
Bean is a prospect who has more potential than Holl since he's also younger. Petrovic in 2018-19 was 27 not 30. He also was doing for greater things defensively in the advanced analytics. Plus it was Edmonton who was desperate for a defenseman. and that's half the reason no one gets that type of a haul anymore because of his poor production after and has been in the AHL ever since so far from even close to being a good argument. And based on what data that you haven't shown at all because it isn't there. Lmao if you want to come to a debate at least bring the evidence with you.
P.s. I did my own research which is why I have brought up more than 10 different trades, I brought up multiple different situations with Holl, and I've brought up past things that have happened which shows he isn't worth it. All you have said is you are wrong and brought up 2 trades that doesn't even fit your narrative and I have easily blew up.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>drambui</b></div><div>ill go slowly. its ok if you think holl is horrendous and an 6-7-8d if you want. its your opinion and you are entitled to it and i have no need to argue if holl is good, bad, underated, overated or not, because that is subjective.
now what i can tell you for facts is that he his not a cap dump like you are pretending he is for whatever reason. now if you want to know how, here is the most important things to gauge a player trade value (not if he is good , just the value). things like : point total, position, cap hit, year left on contract (the less the better) and ice time have a better correlation to trade value than most advanced stats in the last 5 years (not saying its a good thing, maybe all gm are dinosaurs, but its what mostly relevant when they make trades and they correlate better). now go and look whats the price for a rd, making 2 mil, 30 point ish ppg pace and making 2 mil with 1 year left. look at the value of player close to holl on these metric and you will find what gm will pay for. maybe he sucks, who cares. what you will find out, a 3rd round pick is probably a given... and talking about being a cap dump is just ridiculous, capiche?</div></div>
because total points matter for a defenseman who's supposed to be defensive? It also matters that he's with Muzzin or Giordano who are both significantly better and significantly more offensive which makes his assistman stats look better than they really are. Basing the correlation he's on one of the most offensive d cores, and also one of the best forward cores in the league, and moving from that to a team not nearly as good shows significant drop offs for players such as Holl. If you want to go down the route of how good he is you take a 3-5 season average, not 1 season. cap hit has absolutely nothing to do with his value because regardless of how much he costs. he's overpaid for a 3rd pairing guy. Bortuzzo makes 950,000, who other Toronto fans have tried to trade Holl for in a 1 for 1 just in conversation. Position does play a role, but when you aren't actually as good as they say you are and only play in a higher role because they don't trust young players that doesn't make him a neccessity. year left on his contract woohoo. That has nothing to do with anything. NHL normally counts those as rentals which makes their market value cut in half. No Ice time doesn't really mean all that much. Unless you correlate ice time to who the player plays with and how he performs against the level of talent he's paired with 100% means nothing. Considering injuries that occurred on Toronto anyway they are sort of off anyway. and no because Toronto is based sheerly on advanced stats and cap situation which is why Giordano was brought at the amount he was brought in at. what still baffles me how you want to sit here and say Holl is so good then Toronto should just keep him. Need him for the playoff run right? Talk about a RD pricing at 2 Million call him 30 point pace because he's never hit 30 points and has never played a full season in his career because he makes dumb plays and the coach benches him makes complete sense. You think a 3rd round pick is going to be offered for a rental, a guy who never hit 30 points yet you call him 30 point per game lmao not even season. 30 points per game. 2 mil and makes him worth that. I'm pretty sure we just found out the answer to why you haven't understood my entire context. Did you know Holl would not be placed as a Top 4 defenseman on any other contending team in the league? Name 1 team that would put him in the Top 4 of the lineup. I'll wait on that one. Name 1 3rd pairing defenseman who got a 3rd round pick or higher and it was not at trade deadline it was at offseason. I'll wait. Name 1 defenseman who got a 3rd round pick when he underperforms with a player who isn't a bonified top 4 defenseman, and performs at a higher rate when he does play with a bonified top 4 defenseman. I'll wait. Did you know Blues asked for a 1st round pick for Vince Dunn. 30 point per season player. at the time played 1st Pairing minutes with Pietrangelo and only got moved when he got expansion drafted. No one even offered a 3rd round pick. Best offer was a 5th round pick. He has outperformed Holl over the past 4 years including being a 100% CF player in the Stanley Cup finals. Toronto in a position cash strapped needs out of some contracts to get better. That costs. No one needs Holl. You can't really name a team who needs him. Montreal especially. Why would they take on 2 million of salary cap and just lose out on draft picks for what? 1 year of a player not doing a thing? LOL. I don't know how this makes sense to you. No one is giving up a 3rd round pick in the next 2 deep drafts for a player who is going to be a wasted season and do absolutely nothing but keep the team stagnant.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>drambui</b></div><div>i dont think any team is pushing for the playoffs right now. look at most team and holl would improve their bottom 4. i dont get how you can say one year the guy is worth a second but the next year he is a cap dump. Just makes no sense, and i dont k ow qbere you get those rd numbers but i can tell you its still the position with the most need across the league right now. (one could argue starting goalies aswell but you get what im saying)</div></div>
Ok, let's do this slowly then if you truly want to figure this one out. Trade deadline, not as many Defenseman, if someone trades for him it's in desperation mode. Desperation mode because the need is there. Example Florida, Chiarot. St.Louis, Leddy. Boston, Lindholm. Colorado, Manson. I could keep going. Now we are in the offseason. Completely different story you aren't completely desperate because options are open. You don't need to overpay now because you aren't in a time crunch. And no it's not the most needed spot anymore. Lot of people target Wingers, and Goalies. Because optimally a lot of Defenseman prospects are moving right now through the course. So now people are struggling to find Wingers. I might add a lot of 2Cs have been needed, because that's also been hard to come by. Boston has been looking for one since before the season started. Minnesota is now looking for one. Nashville is as well. Columbus probably will. Calgary might, Vancouver will.
