<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>BeastModeUnknown</b></div><div>montreal fans need to learn there players place. Pac's value fell because of injury. gallagher sure okay 30 goal scorer send him of the first line. still not worth kyrou. a 100 POINT SEASON. If you want to know why you guys aren't winning cups. Look at what you guys think is fair deals. why have you guys not won a cup since the 20th century. because you think Pac, Gallagher, Schezbak, and not even 4oa you gave a 2019 pick to keep the 4oa. for a 100 point producer, a 1st round pick for THIS year, a player who looks like a top 3 guy to come in thomas. a nhl ready 20+ goal scorer in thompson, a should have been TOP 10 PICK but no one wanted to risk it except Blues. and the funniest thing is you think its fair to give 4 in a way first round picks for that. if anyone doesnt know hockey its you guys. because you wont give what they are actually worth. <a href="/users/Ragsandbluesfan" target="_blank">@Ragsandbluesfan</a> <a href="/users/The_Real_FBGM_37" target="_blank">@The_Real_FBGM_37</a> <a href="/users/MT_11" target="_blank">@MT_11</a> and more of these guys all agree with me I would not offer 4 first round picks for Pacioretty, Gallagher, scherzbak and not even the 4oa its the 2019 pick just so you can keep the 4oa to pick one of the top 5 guys. Anyone agree. I think that is the concept of what is lopsided. take your f ucking players and go find someone else to cheese.</div></div>
Im sorry but when was the last time St Louis won a cup? or maybe even made a conference final? and Kyrou was a 100 point player in the OHL as a 20 year old. he should be putting up those numbers against guys who are typically 2 years younger than him. Where are you getting 4 first round picks? Thomas #20, Kostin #31, and everyone else was drafted after that. You can talk about valuing your players one way or another but I would rather value my players on what they have done in the NHL not what people tell me they might do. Especially since every one of them was drafted outside of the top 10 and hasn't been able to come into the league as a teenager, that's not the sign of an elite prospect.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>BeastModeUnknown</b></div><div>You wanna know simple minded. You a person who never played the game in your life, never coached, never GMed. Me 6 years of starting goalie. was heading to sarnia before a 3 ACL tears in 2 years. You know what else I coached for 4 years as a high school then I decided to coach a select team. so what do you call simple minded in picking my players wisely. and what is simple minded when my hand picked team wins 3 years in a row?</div></div>
Ugh now your just getting sad. Don’t need your resume to see how qualified you are for your fantasy league. I think it’s safe to assume everyone one here has some history in hockey, one way or another. Personally Iv played hockey every year of my life since I was 3, does that make me an expert, no. But am I smart enough to look at that trade and see that trading 4 actually valuable pieces for 2 centers over the age of 30 who combined for a total of 21 points last year, and 4 kids who haven’t even played an NHL game yet is a ridiculously one sided trade.
Add in the fact that out of those 4 picks, 2 were drafted in the first round, one in the second and one in the 6th.
So let me ask you, would you trade Max Pacioretty, Brendan Gallagher, Nikita Scherbak (that’s how you spell it by the way) and #3 overall for #20, #31, #35 and #156?
That’s basically how this trade lays out. If you want me to break it down further for you I can, but make sure you have your calculator and dictionary out so I don’t get you lost in the statistics or the reasoning.
