  1. I think Gallagher still has value. He's on his tenth season in the league and had 14 goals in 35 games last season. 22 from 59 the year before. 33 goals and 31 goals in the years before that. No one will question his work ethic. I think he's someone teams would still see value in despite the contact running 'til 2026-27.

  2. Pretty hilarious lineup we've been having to throw out there lately. Certainly doesn't hinder the tank. :lol: I don't even recall hearing the name Brandon Baddock before. Nice to see young players getting some chances, though. Louis Belpedio? Corey Schueneman? Who?

    I think we're all looking forward to the 2022-23 or 2023-24 season.

    I don't like that we dont have a GM until after Chrstmas. Does that mean no moves until then also? We're almost begging for Chiarot to get injured.

    I wouldn't move Drouin cause he's young enough, speaks french, shoots left (which is a rarity on our team). I'd move Toffoli, he's still putting up points despite the shitty team. With his contract, I think we could really get something for him as well. 

    Toffoli would definitely be an interesting trade piece. He doesn't have any NTC or NMC clauses either. Very affordable salary.

    honestly every day he's still not traded makes me think less of how the team is being handled right now. Everyone can see Chiarots value and that he clearly needs to be moved. What is the hold up? If he gets injured we lose everything. 

     

    Chiarot actually scored goals for a D man, he's always done this. Yeah clearly a first-rounder that question is what else. a 1st and a defensive prospect makes sense, but I don't think you get an A prospect for just Chiarot, maybe more a B prospect, unless you forgo the 1st rounder completely and just get a really good prospect. In terms of draft picks he's worth about a first and a third (maybe make that third a second, or a fourth, but about there)

    I hope we start seeing movement soon

    I would be looking for a first rounder in 2023. I have read that that draft is gonna be deep.

    Who

    Jeff Petry out indefinitely, Corey Schueneman recalled by the Montreal Canadiens

    Petry will not travel with the team to Nashville.

     

    Wonder what that is about...? I know we've discussed the possibility of Petry carrying a nagging injury throughout the season. Maybe with Gorton on board he is shutting it down 'til Petry is actually healthy.

    So a team that has long been maligned for ruining young players has Nick Suzuki playing between Artturi Lehkonen and Jake Evans and Cole Caufield on the fourth line tonight. If Dominique Ducharme is actually trying to get himself fired, he's doing a great job.

    We'll see what happens now that Gorton is around. I believe he mentioned Ducharme is safe for this season. Which is fine... as long as he starts providing young players with the right opportunities to succeed.

    Gorton said he plans to implement an analytics department: “We need to build that out better. We need to modernize it. I believe in it.”

    "The team had a tough start, I recognize that and Geoff (Molson) and I went through that. Things need to happen. My teams are fast and skilled. We need to work on player development. We need to add analytics." - Jeff Gorton

    Gorton‘s timeline for priorities:

    1. GM — after Christmas

    2. Head scout — TBD

    Is the head coach safe until the end of the season: “Yes.”

    Sounds like the opposite of Bergevin. Nice!

    I agree 100% at this point I don't see anyone as untouchable to a point! if we were to let go of a Suzuki or a CC it would have to be for something amazing in return! it looks like we will have a legitimate chance at the #1 pick this year and with some good moves we could have a couple of picks in the first round that could lead to impactful players fairly quickly if we were to suck next year as well this could be the begining of a really good core of talent that could move us into a solid position in the next 2-4 years depending on how much we sell! Those who can't wait a year or two to see some results are probably not long term fans anyways!

    Suzuki is the only one who is untouchable for me. Cole hasn't shown enough in his young career for me to consider him untouchable. I hope he turns into a 25+ goal scorer in this league, but nothing is guaranteed.

    I'm not actively trying to deal away the whole team, but there are players here who we could get value from in a trade before the deadline.

    Ben Chiarot (first rounder)
    Brett Kulak (mid rounder..?)
    Jonathan Drouin (no idea, but I'm sure we could get something)
    Arturri Lehkonen (mid rounder)
