In response to bostonfan191646's comment:
so careers of good hockey players end at 32 now? wasn't aware a 5 year contract at age 27 is a career contract. Regardless, it does not make any sense. If you are looking for your career contract, you certainly don't want to do it after a down year. Secondly, you certainly don't want to do it in a year where the cap has gone down, and the number of teams that can bid for you is a fraction of what it would normally be. it makes NO sense. none of that makes any sense. Lucic for Yakupov? It would be absurd for edmonton to think about that. Spooner on the fourth line will never ever happen. whatsup with you today shupe?
No. But he is in his so called prime. He has head issues. Hes a freaking risk. Do you not understand this. How is horton having a down year. Hes one of the highest goal scoring ufas. And someone will overpay. Semin just got 7 million a year.
Did marchand play on the 4th line to start his career. Worked out pretty well.
Absurdly edmonton is the softest team in hockey, they have numerous high end picks and still stink bc they are all very similar. Lucic is a first line power fwd who gets you 30 goals anf is young. They need a lucic more then a yaku. If you dont see why edmonton stinks you need to watch them more. They are the softest team in hockey Hands down.
the league normally experiences 8+% growth. why, when the cap goes down would you be looking for a long term -- okay, you know what, forget it, you don't understand, and won't. He'll be in his prime at 28 too, and with a cap at around 70 he'll get his 5/25, or 6/30. he won't get more than maybe 3/12 this year.
Marchand played on the fourth line to start his career. It worked out well. Ryan Spooner is not Marchand. he's not an agitator, he's a skill guy. No campirason, nothing to do with one another.
Ya sure EDM could use lucic, he would be great for them. They could also afford to get rid of Yakupov. But not 1 for 1. Lucic + Spooner for him? maybe. Lucic and a 1st. Lucic and Boychuk. Actually Lucic and Boychuk is something they would probably take, and I think I would do that if I was the bruins too. Might be Lucic Boychuk and a pick though. anyway. "Yaku's" value>>>>>>Lucic value
