<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Breakaway</b></div><div>Not enough cap space if you follow exactly what this guys thinks, but theres zero chance Backes is back, like litterally none. If the Bruins go 10% over the cap in the offseason signing Stone then they'll find a way to move Backes and it'll still be worthwhile even if it took a 1st round pick. If a rental deal was going to have a conditional 1st in it to resign Stone then why wouldn't it be smart to pair a 1st with Backes to move his total hit so you can afford Stone in UFA? You're just stating the obvious in this mock which everyone already understood; If the Bruins sign Stone than Backes has to go..... it's common knowledge on here and you should have known that by now.</div></div>
It still is not enough. Do the math. As of now they have 65m in salary already next year for 16 players. Move Backes with no retention and no salary back (good luck). 59m. 15 players. Cap is 83. That’s 24m. Stone, CMac, Carlo going to take roughly 18-21 leaving 3-6 left to sign Heinen, Cehlarik, JFK , replace Chara, Acciari, and Kampfer. Impossible. So now you have to get really creative, piss off the RFAs and low ball them, or trade Krug.
Sweet jesus, I am convinced people only come here to argue the slightest things sometimes... <a href="/users/keepcalmandbergeron" target="_blank">@keepcalmandbergeron</a>
Your description was clear enough and I understood exactly what you were getting at with it from the start.
I don't necessarily agree with half the comparisons but then again its purely opinionated so who gives a flying ****......

<strong>Scouts and Analysts use projections to compare and contrast similarities in play styles. such as this guy................. plays like this......... guy.</strong> no analyst or Scout in the history of the league has come out and said I think this guy is gonna be the next Kucherov or Rinne or Doughty. that's a great way to destroy your credibility because 99% of the time that player is not gonna reach that projection.
also to the point of projection I do truly see them as a complete waste of time because there are hundreds of instances when a player is touted to be the next big thing and then fails miserably and also the other way around where a player becomes a top player in the league after going tin the 7th round at the draft. <strong>a projection is completely opinionated and as an analysis tool, completely useless. however if you are going to make a projection atleast make them somewhat realistic. Ex. Studnika and Frederic do not have the potential to be Ryan O'rielly or David Backes</strong>
could you imagine if a hyoung guy walked into the team ho drafted him and the first thing he is told by everybody is we expect you to be the next kucherov. talk about ridiculous expectations</div></div>
So its ok for an analyst to "compare and contrast similarities in play styles" but not for OP? All he's doing is projecting if a players potential is fulfilled and based on the style of play currently, this is potentially what he thinks they will be. No where does he say " Gabrielle is the next Gallagher and will be 100% for sure". He's simply giving his opinion on what he hopes a player can be. There is no waste of time here except for your opinions of how he shouldn't be wasting his time doing this. You have that backwards, YOU shouldn't be wasting YOUR time if you don't agree with the premise of the AGM. Not him. You aren't giving constructive criticism.
Once again so you say these projections are useless but if you do use them, at least make them realistic? Oh ok so YOUR OPINION is what can makes it realistic? See where that is very<strong> hypocritical</strong>?
So stop with psycho-analytical babble and read the description again:
Replacing Prospects with Current Players(ceiling projections)
"Borrowed this format from jassan28, thought it would be<strong> fun</strong>. In most cases I've tried to find players of the same position, handiness, back-round, style, draft position and progression.<strong> Keep in mind this is my take on their ceilings and I realize only a small portion will realize their full potential.</strong>"
For Christ's sake, you don't go to an art gallery and argue an artists own interpretation of his work.
