<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>palhal</b></div><div>Wings would be much better off, keeping those young assets, and spending 10m on UFAI(s) than just one 10m Eichel.
Don't know why the Sabres would be against the the trade, getting all those young assets and new found cap.</div></div>
Yeah you’re correct, I wouldn’t do this trade as I stated in description. But sure is interesting to see how both sides view this idea. It’s a lot of assets in one trade, even if none are of the elite prospect level, 3 firsts easily should have 1 turn elite.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Shibbal18</b></div><div>No its crap. I said Berggren is good, but thats it. Including the 3 picks in 2021, this draft sucks and everyone knows it. You have 3 players that couldn't make it in Detroit, 2 of which are dmen that have 0 chance in Buffalo and some unknown kid that may be 4-6 years away from an NHL debut. Picks dont make up value, and the Sabres should be getting as few as possible</div></div>
At the most it’s 2 players that couldn’t make it in Detroit. If the third is McIsaac well he is a 2018 draft pick 36 overall and has been mostly injured since the draft. But even if he hadn’t been, I would suggest no chance he would have a shot at the NHL yet, Veleno selected 6 spots ahead of him just got his first 5 games as a forward, defence take longer. The other 2 are still relatively young and while they won’t live up to their draft position, it’s early to say they won’t be NHLers. I’m sorry, picks don’t have value in your eyes?

Wilson punching Buch while Buch was in an awkward, defenseless position with his head pushed to the ice and his neck against a stick, and his right arm twisted up...pretty damn dirty...in all fairness the punches weren’t death blows- but maybe thanks to Strome jumping in injury to Buch was avoided....which of course led to Panarin jumping on Wilson (to try prevent Strome getting rag dolled (the way he eventually did).
I’m fine with Buch getting suspended for his attacking Mantha (even though Mantha provoked)...but to marginalize what Wilson did versus what Buch did a game later is downright insane....Wilson showed that night....just as he has shown numerous times...that he has no regard for players’ safety. He should have been suspended remainder of regular season and first round of the playoffs...for whatever reason his “consequences” on ensuing violations are getting more and more minimal....this league is failing its players.</div></div>
No I’m not kidding you. A cross check to the face is more dangerous than a punch (this wasn’t a haymaker guys) to the shoulder/neck/head area. Not saying what Wilson did was clean here my guy. Everything that followed the Buch on the ice and defenceless part, I would say is a scrum, and to which that is hockey, there was nothing insane about what happened. Wilson was worked up and fighting harder than the rest of the guys were, he’s also stronger. I’m not a caps fan.
Don’t take the Wilson play in a vacuum and the Mantha play as the whole play. Buch kicked the goalie, so if we are going to include the taps on the leg (I can’t believe this is a selling point for rangers fans believing Mantha deserved this cross check to the face), then let’s include the kick in considering the way those plays developed. Both were dirty, Busch’s was worse. You’re free to think differently, I’m not a fan of either team in this scenario and I think the league sees it the same way
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>OldNYIfan</b></div><div>It's amazing to me that you can write this and not realize how much it proves that you're wrong -- 100% demonstrably and indisputably wrong. Yes, the whole point is that "Mantha would have happily fought and destroyed Buch" because he's a cowardly bully -- he knew who he was slashing from behind, so he felt safe in doing so. He wouldn't have dared slash Milan Lucic or any other tough guy in the NHL. So when Buchnevic unexpectedly turned the tables by using his stick instead of his hands, you come to the bully's defense. And YES, I'm trying to tell you that a couple of whacks to the leg isn't a normal play in the NHL when the whacker is a tough guy and the whackee is a skill guy.
Wilson is a disgrace to hockey, and the fact that Mantha needs to be defended after being the bully initiating the incident indicates that he isn't far behind Wilson. Your inability to acknowledge Mantha's instigation is very telling.</div></div>
Mate, you are well over the point of being triggered, clearly mad and just wanting to argue at this point it appears. I hope in real life you never write stuff like “how much it proves that you’re wrong” lol come on.
A. Calling Mantha a cowardly bully is absurd and has no backing
B. Mantha did not like the hit from Buch, but Buch skated away from him, hence the whacks. With the temperature of the game I’m sure Mantha expected to go right after that kind of run (not saying it was dirty but an unnecessarily aggressive hit from someone you are calling a skill guy)
C. Mantha is pretty tough himself, just always breaks his hand when he fights haha but I don’t think he’s scared of most in the league. Mantha is ALSO a skill guy
D. Hahahaha “using his stick instead of his hands” oh so an attempt to injure you mean? Because that’s clearly what it was
E. Players whack players in the legs at all levels of the game that is hockey buddy, part of being tough to play against. This instance was clearly not part of the play, but that’s not an irregular thing to have happen to let guys know you’re there
F. I did not mention Wilson in this last response, you are so clearly triggered by him that you need to turn every post into something about him. And don’t you dare tell me Mantha is right behind Wilson get yourself checked
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>OldNYIfan</b></div><div>Dirtier? Mantha knew what was coming -- he'd whacked Buchnevich THREE SEPARATE TIMES from behind to goad Buchnevvich into turning around -- for which Mantha was penalized, after all. So Mantha can't whine about a smaller, skill player retaliating face-to-face. Is the feckless Department of Player Safety going to have a hearing for Mantha's stickwork? Of course not.
I grew up in the streets of NY in a much earlier time. I learned, among other things:
1. You pay the price, you earn the right.
2. If you start something, you don't get to weasel about how the other guy finishes it.
Suspending Shayne Gostisbehere two games for checking from behind immediately after kissing Wilson's a$$ and giving further discipline to Buchnevich without also punishing Mantha for being 100% at fault for creating an incident in an already highly-charged atmosphere, demonstrates that every single person in the DPS should be fired before the playoffs start. Otherwise, the Stanley Cup could be mayhem.
Lenny, you know what respect I have for your opinion. But this time, you're wrong.</div></div>
Mantha would have happily fought and destroyed Buch if the linesmen weren’t in his way. Buch is the one that actually did something and weasled his way out of it with protection from the refs. How can you defend a guy jumping at someone’s head with his stick, Mantha’s head isn’t sitting there at shoulder height that was a targeted attack to the head. You’re way too charged up about this whole situation if you are SERIOUSLY trying to tell me a couple whacks to the leg isn’t a normal play in the NHL
