    in the end..it comes down to having 3 8 million guys on the team would be cap hell in the near future...you would be kissing goodbye to Simmonds..you may have Ghost re-signed but you would have Provy to worry about in a couple years..and TK..etc etc

      Rev, saying he was great his years 3 through 6 is not the same as saying he was great because he played alongside generational stars, because he still only had Lemieux for a portion of one of those best years.

      i.get the point about Drasaiti, and agree on that, but disagree with statements based on the numbers on Recchi.

        It's not just Lemiux tho...it's Jagr, Stevens and a ton of others on that team and then it's Lindros and then there's a noticeable what...30% drop in point production once that changes..

        ​​​Recchi was a terrific player. He was noticeably better playing with the early 90s Pens and Lindros than he was at any other time. He was also a piece Pittsburgh and Philly were willing to move to improve...

          100% this and coupled with the gigantic risk of Draisatl not repeating the kind of performance... just no way would I be happy with this move.

          Two 1sts, a 2nd, and a 3rd doesn't bother me as much as how badly that could handcuff us and make us give up a lot more talent along the way.

          The idea is based off of trying to handcuff Edmonton, but in reality, it handcuffs the crap out of us for a player who has absolutely no guarantee to replicate the season he had.

          Let alone the whole "offer sheet" thing is so frowned upon that Holmgren even says that he felt it hindered his ability to make trades after offer-sheeting Weber.

          No way.

            How are you evaluating the risk of not repeating to determine it's "gigantic"? I personally consider that risk to be closer to "minimal" but admittedly that is simply based on watching him play over the past few seasons and the trajectory of improvement.

              Is Tarasenko a comparable? I believe so

                How so? Tarasenko does it without the stacked club and is the main focus..

                  Why would Draisaitl want to even sign here? Also, where are you getting the cap money from?

                      I'm sure Provorov will be signed before his entry-level deal is up.
