You knew it was gonna happen.  Keep going Arizona.  Not even close.

NYT Article on Matthews

Quote
Asked if the Leafs would possibly trade away the top pick, Lamoriello chuckled, adding, “I don’t think you’ll see that.”

Wow, what a package.

In turn, we'll take those assets and throw in Nylander and that should get us McDavid.

Probably being pushed by Bettman and Co.

I start to listen when I hear they're offering #7, #20, OEL, Strome, and, Domi. Anything less and I hang up the phone!

The players picked at #7 and #20 may not amount to anything, so, we have to get OEL, Strome, and Domi minimum, JMHO.

This thread should be titled "Freelance sports writer nobody ever heard of needs RTs".

Basically. It's 100% "I'm going to make something up about a player and a team that fans and media have connected for months, but, really, I have no actual insight or connections."

I doubt it gets much crazier. With Arizona already essentially saying they're not going to include OEL and the famously tight-lipped Lamoriello basically ruling out the idea of trading the pick as per that NYT quote then really the only thing we're likely to see between here and now are things like this, people who aren't all that reliable reporting unrealistic scenarios.

We discount anything from Eklund here too, right?

To discuss all the stuff we already know is garbage?

Or just have a laugh at the joke of offers that come in with none of them being any good.
