2020 Trade Deadline Commentary and Mockery

Postby slaps » Mon Feb 24, 2020 10:06 am

The Senators did an incredible job with the Pageau trade.

I thought that said "WalMart" for a minute and was confused.

I hate the Pageau trade (not saying that's good/bad for the two involved teams: time will tell and I also like Ottawa, hence the subjectivity).

He was part of the Senators core, heart and soul of the team, coming from Gatineau just on the other side of the Outaouais river, grew up as a Sens fan; he defined their identity. With DeMelo and Nametsnikov gone as well, it's another team destruction and I'm wondering who's the biggest moron: Melnyk or Dorion (or both). #MelnykOut will flourish again, Ottawa will finish 1-80-1 next season.

Buffalo added Wayne Simmonds as a rental. They gave up nothing for him, but why? Simmonds is terrible now. The a Sabres are well out of it. They need seven points to get back up ahead of Toronto.

The SportsNet studio might have a carbon monoxide leak. This is the lowest energy broadcast I’ve ever seen.

Wow. Finally a big trade. Minnesota is serious about tearing things down. Trading Parise to the Islanders.

Why would the Islanders do that? Parise’s contract isn’t as bad as Benn’s, but it’s bad. He’s got 5 more years at $7.5m/year.

I bet Minnesota retains a lot.

Lou Lamoriello and Ladd's contract is awful.

I'm in Canada right now, so I woke up to having both TSN and SN available. TSN puts on a better show.

Yeah, but he's got an xGrit/60 of like 94%.

No way Joe goes to Florida. At least you won't be laughed out of the building if you claim the Stars have an outside shot at the Cup. Still, it seems like Boston is a better fit to me.

I'd be fine with Thornton if the price is low. It would need to be more of a token price rather than a legit push by San Jose for valuable assets.

But assuming it's Janmark that comes out of the lineup, that seems fine to me. Janmark is fast, but stone hands. Thornton is the exact opposite, but the idea of him feeding passes to Gurianov is intriguing.

Normally, I'd say "but it's Florida, and everyone wants to go to Florida" except that Thornton lives in the Bay Area, which is one of the few spots that is exponentially better than Florida, especially if you have money.

Doubt it’s a big consideration. He’ll be done soon enough and can then live wherever he likes.

I'd rather keep Janmark. We really don't need another slow old guy, we have enough. Thornton has 27 pts to Janmark's 21. Big upgrade, there.

He does kinda suck now, but our system is known for producing big offensive numbers!

Janmark is a pending UFA correct? He might be gone in the summer regardless. If the Stars wanted to keep him they probably would have locked him into an extension already.

Jumbo Joe to the Stars for Janmark and a cheap something else, I'd give the green light. Just to see what the outcome will be.

But Parisé to the Isles is strange. Terrible contracts exchange and I have always thought Parisé has a perfect situation in the Wild retirement home.

But I doubt this team can afford to lose his 21 points. That feels like about 36% of our scoring, at least.

I'd be fine with Jumbo Joe, but not sure if he'll be way better at creating offense or not.

Probably not even strength, but maybe he'd have something to offer on the PP.

I think so, and a potential game changer as opposed to Janmark for example. Plus leadership and... marketing with the #19 #91 #6 jerseys.
