General Rumours & Speculation / Re: Tavares

Well, this is where we disagree.

Again, you're "disagreeing" with the overwhelming evidence that teams benefit from having two players who are both capable of being top-tier centres. That's the only argument here. If you're claiming there is a redundancy you have to argue why having Gretzky lessened Messier's value or why having Sakic diminished Forsberg's role. Or how Malkin and Crosby, who frequently play together on the PP, somehow get in each others way.

Simply put, #1C does not exist as a position the way you think it does.

Well, actually I was disagreeing with what I said I was disagreeing with, not with your non sequitur.

As for your side note, ehhhh I dunno.  Marner is probably the more attractive of the 2 compared with Nylander but unless you really sweetened the deal beyond him by adding, oh, say, Nylander haha hoho I don't think you are going to return a Norris type, which is what we are talking about when you plug in the name "Karlsson" into this thinkpiece.

Possible Matt Martin trading partner?

I was just reading that too.  It seems like it would be a two-way, in which case Marincin would probably be reluctant to sign.

You guys have a better understanding of this, so enlighten me here...

Since we don't know the $$ offered on the other end of the 2-way, is it likely premature for us to suggest he wouldn't be interested in it?

Also, wouldn't he be short on options in N.A. hockey?

Happy?

To sound completely ungrateful, that is a .jpg, sir.

I also can't believe the first and only time I ever watched Oprah was this exact episode at the giveaway moment.

As I posted on Twitter, I wonder if Marincin just accepts his QO which is 1.3M x 1 yr.

I was just looking into this. The issue with Marincin taking it is that I think his QO might be a two-way deal. From Capfriendly:

Quote
The qualifying offer must be a One-Way offer if the following three requirements are met (A goaltender is considered to have played a game if they are on the bench as a backup for this scenario):

The player played in 180 NHL games in the previous three seasons (Prorating for the shortened 2012-13 season: 156 games if one of the three seasons is 2012-13).
The player played in 60 NHL games in the previous season (36 if the previous season is 2012-13).
The player did not clear waivers in the previous season.

Or you trade Nylander for other assets and sign Doughty on the FA market. Only trading Nylander then for the cap space.

That's way too risky for me.

Some names not getting QO's:



Reider is interesting.  His QO would have been 2.45M.  I don't think they declined to tender the QO for any reason other than worrying that he'd sign it.  He's an NHLer, but probably not @ 2.45M.
