<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Random2152</b></div><div>Personally I don't see Frolik as a huge +, if one at all. Spezza has been fine and considering the player ramifications of moving the home town boy who signed for pennies I don't think I am in favour of that.

I think if some trade were to happen with Mitch going to CGY that Tkachuk would have to be the one going back due to age and team needs.
Gotta wonder what Marner for Tkachuk 1-for would do.
Marner has the ability to be the better player style wise for JG (Imagine Gaudreau-Monahan-Marner) and for team composition (CGY weak on right) but carries the high aav (albeit for 6 years).
Tkachuk brings that edge we lost from Kadri to the room and some more physicality, along with being an elite transition player (a-la Nylander) while being cheaper (for less term) and helping our weak left.

I know CGY loves MT, and the whole contract talks soured many opinions on Mitch but overall I think that could ultimately be a decent trade.

Johnsson-Matthews-Nylander
Hyman-Kerfoot-Moore
Timashov-Engvall-Spezza

Gaudreau-Monahan-Marner
Mangiapane-Backlund-Lindholm

Lucic-Jank-Frolik</div></div>

Still think the wisest move for CGY is to move Gaudreau in a move like this. He has 3 years left there, and I can't see him re-signing. Most likely he wants to return US. Tkachuk have much more years left, and to be fair Tkachuk-Monahan-Marner line sounds just as saucy, or potentially more, since it has optimal blend of talent and physicality.

Not to mention that Tkachuk is also the best scorer of CGY this year. Statistically he's above both Gaudreau and Marner, and contractually as well.
