No. I watch the nights a lot. He is not the type of player we need.

@Yaknowwhat @Archie Vanlanda @peterbleafs @B_Leaf I thought he played really well last night. One time his defensive coverage was late and it lead to a a goal. Other then that he was excellent.

@Yaknowwhat @peterbleafs @B_Leaf He must have been better last night as I only saw you get frustrated with him once on here last night.

@Cameron19 @Alec Brownscombe Depends on the talent coming in and the change in strategy about what type of players they are picking.

@Cameron19 @Archie Vanlanda @BrandonCheema He has had some bone head plays this year. I also think he has lots of potential. He is a very interesting players in that regard. It is so hard to judge what side of the coin he will end up being. Even if his offense doesn't pan out he could be a great puck moving defense man and with his skating he has the potential to be good defensively.  On the other hand if he doesn't get his head on straight pretty soon those major gaffs are going to be the end of him here.

@Cameron19 @BrandonCheema Healthy hips + Barb Underhill + Dion + buying into system by most of the team = a better Cody

@Yaknowwhat @Archie Vanlanda @deedrag Yes but you were trying to use that one game as an argument against him in the playoffs. I just don't think the way it ended was his fault.  His playoff performance was excellent overall.

@Yaknowwhat Its all about the cap agreed. How do you manage a cap well? You need players who play above their contract.  Frason is about to sign the biggest deal of his career. One that he will probably never live up to. Unless you get Franson on a deal, or short term its not good cap management.  The Gardiner contract isn't looking the greatest right now either.

@B_Leaf @Archie Vanlanda Just looking at draft rankings I see six Cs int he top 10. Mitch Marner is one of them and I would not draft him. Having seen him play a fair amount in London he is not the type of player we need.

@Mitch_S2 @Archie Vanlanda I feel like they already made their moves defensively. He already tried to reshape the D and will give it some time. Might have forwards he is willing to move.

@Mitch_S2 I don't think Dallas has any young defenders they would be willing to give up. Any young defensman that we need already has to be ready to play in the NHL. We have lots of young dmen who are progressing to that point no need to bring on anymore. We need an NHL dman now. Dallas' D-core is in awful shape. They have no one to trade.

@Cameron19 @Zep2 For that centre core a huge amount of payroll being eaten up is well worth it.

@mr_hanie Sometimes its the forwards that are the issue getting the puck out of our zone. A lot of the time really.

@Yaknowwhat Buffalo has a lot of young high end defensive draft talent. I doubt they would be interested in Gards. I would probably do that trade though and I see a lot more good in Gards than most people around here.

@dlb Mad @Archie Vanlanda I understand your points, although your not saving any salary switching JVR to O'Rielly. I just want a properly built team and I don't think we can achieve that through trades.

@dlb Mad @Archie Vanlanda My point is if we can't go from where we are to a contender then what is the point of trading to get a little better. If we believe we can't make a contender based on what we have we should be looking to make trades that free cap space bring in picks prospects and make us worse so that we can get better. 


If we think we can trade our way into contendorship I am all for it. I just don't see it.
