<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>datdude</b></div><div>I'm a bruins fan and I still think it is comical how everyone is overrated, we were having this conversation with Donato, Heinen, Bjork. Where did it end up??? You have to trade to fit the window if you genuinely want to win.
Lindholm paired with Krejci has 40 G potential and gives them that over the hump winger to pair with DK46, so aside take out carlo and hanifin for the trade, Kase, Studnicka, Vaak and 2 picks ISNT FAR FETCHED. He is on an extremely friendly deal that expedites his value, and the fact he really hasn't had a bonifide center to play with in his career or solid wingers. Boston would be over the moon to get a player on this term of his caliber.
At some point you have to cash in your chips.</div></div>
Donato yes, Heinen was going to be a middle-six player and that's what he is. Bjork has had top6 potential and still has it imo, Bruins wanted him to improve his defensive game and be a better two-way player, that's what he is now.
It is a lot for a guy with a " 40 G potential ". Kase could give you 25-30G next year (well, on a 82 game pace), Studnicka can become a 2C, Vaakanainen has top4 D potential and those two picks are 1st and 2nd round picks, Bruins rarely have those and they will need to keep them because the prospect pipeline isn't great. Sure, if you need a player and you feel like this is the missing piece, trade them but moving those just for " potential " is risky.
IMO Lindholm isn't elite and he isn't the guy you trade for with Kase and Smith in the lineup now. Go for a top4 LD.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>PGHBOB69</b></div><div>McCann is better than Nichushkin. McCann has had back to back 35 point seasons. And 19 goals in 18-19. You are looking at his stat line wrong!! You are looking at it and not adding the 2 lines together in 18-19. It’s not 2 separate seasons..lol. He split the year between 2 teams. And McCann is only 24 years old. Made the NHL when he was 19 years old and has never looked back. And he’s been bounced around from 3C, to top 6 LW, to 3rd line LW, to 2C when Sid or Geno miss time. And this year, he’ll score 20 plus goals. They already said, they are keeping him on the LW so he can do what he does best, and just snipe!! Score goals, he has a great shot!! And young players need that consistency and routine. Like I said, he’s been jumped around to anywhere we were weak and needed him. Usually only veteran players are good at that, being a utility type player. The young players need that consistency and routine or u could ruin them. This year, he is gonna easily score 20 plus goals; he already scored 19 in a season. And he’s a good two-way player. Ya sure, Nichushkin is better defensively, he had Selke votes last year!! But McCann is a lot better offensively right now!! And much more potential.</div></div>
I don't only look at points when I talk about how good a player is offensively. As I said, I will just agree to disagree.
