Does anyone here think moving Tavares should be considered …
would any of these names make sense ?
Philip Forsberg – Preds
Dylan Larkin Wings
Ryan Getzlaf – Ducks
I seriously doubt Tavares – who has a full NMC – would consider Detroit at this stage of his career. And I doubt either the Predators or Ducks would be interested in adding an annual cap hit for a guy who would be turning 34 when it expires and who – some have observed in here – is already showing wear and tear signs.
Thx George …
Why are the Sens moving Namestnikov??
Seems pretty coveted around the league ..
Because he’s coming of a cap hit of $3,250,000 and at this stage he and his agent likely think they can get more than Ottawa is willing to offer. With 13g 12a 25 pts in 54gp I wouldn’t hand him even that amount.
Who knows, if he goes somewhere for a 4th round pick or even a body the Sens can use the rest of the way, he could wind up back in Ottawa later in the spring … but at a lot less than $3,250,000. Otherwise, they’ll use his spot next year for one of the kids coming up the pipe.
As I say elsewhere in these threads to John, I think the days of throwing good money after bad are fading fast. Here’s what we’re offering – take it or leave it.
We already saw a sign of that in San Jose when Wilson wouldn’t go any higher than $1 mil for Labanc even after he posted a 17g 39a 56 pt season. He was crazy to sign it because now, after a big drop off in production, I see talk in here from Sharks fans that his days in San Jose may be over.
