<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>palhal</b></div><div>Funny how you can criticize Dubas so much when the Flames organization under Trevling was awful. Missed the playoffs more than they made it./
Enjoy another seven year of Huberdeau at 10.5m Tell me what have the Flames got to build around? Huberdeau, five years of 33 year old Kadri. 30 year old of Weager.

When Tavares contract is's not like will have zero residue. One thing they will have is the 11m of Tavares cap....maybe 11m of Marner's too.

All GMs have about the same cap. The good ones work it so their teams win and are solid for years. I didn't think Dubas was particularly good GM, and I don't have much faith in Trevling either.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>oilfire</b></div><div>As a Calgary fan, I already hate Treliving, he's still better than Dubas though.</div></div>

As you can see I already pointed out I'm not a fan of Tre, contrary to popular belief, you don't have to blindly and irrationally support a guy just because he had an affiliation with your team.

We have draft picks and prospects, when Tavares comes off, the Leafs will have the exact same team they had before they signed him, minus the aforementioned draft picks and prospects.

Flames won the same amount of playoff rounds as the Leafs, might have made it in a couple more times but is it really worth mentioning when it equates to little more than a few extra games?

In summary, my team doesn't have to be good to criticize the other guys, as you've proven.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>batman</b></div><div>He didn’t want to get “ rid “ of Jake G. Did you read the bio? Going after Karlsson wasn’t really necessary, but it was to to show the big3 that he was committed. I still believe EK can have a big role on this team if he’s well surrounded. He didn’t do well on Marners and Matthews 1st deals, ultimately a mistake that destroyed the cap structure. At the time, the Tavares signing was good, he was young and elite in 2018. He slotted in perfectly on that 2C role. Nothing against this signing. It happened 6 years ago and thus far it was worth it.

Dubas is extremely talented and is a great GM. He’s young and brings another point of view and style in that buisness. Look at that team he put up last year, tell me it’s his mistake now.. what do you want him to do more?

Bunting Matthews Marner
Knies Tavares Nylander
Kerfoot O’Reilly Jarnkrok
Lafferty Kampf Acciari

Same old thirsty leafs fans are going to hate on Treliving in couple of weeks lmaoo..</div></div>

As I already said, Calgary fan here. Pretty sure you're over looking overwhelming evidence simply because you like the guy.

When Tavares leaves in 2 years, they will likely have zero residual pieces that they built around him, outside of Mathews, Marner and Nylander. His tenure as a Leaf was nothing more than a waste of their primes.

Trading and signing the biggest names on the market is a move any idiot fanboy like me could make.

Good GMs make tough moves that fanboys ridicule, like giving Pacioretty away for nothing. That's how you win cups, which is how success is defined in this league, btw.
