    not the offseason thread

    feel free to vent any and all frustrations here before clearing the slate and moving on to the next thing.

    i'll save a more significant response for the offseason thread, but giroux and voracek are more tradeable than you think, and farabee/frost/lindblom/patrick is a lot of raw talent to be able to infuse next season.

    I wanted to respond to this in here. I really agree with this and think this could be the optimal season to at least unload one of their contracts at the least and go after someone like Laine and/or Hall. I really think this would be a no-brainer for a team that wants to improve.

    sucks that the flyer threads are shrinking by the year . i feel like this board will die soon

    things to look forward to flyer fans:

    -lindblom is a stud
    -farabee growing his game-->getting a bigger role on pp/pk/ev
    -g/voracek are still great but need couts/tk to take over
    -hart is our answer
    -sanheim and myers are still growing
    -provorov can get better
    -frost
    -ghost looks great, best I've seen him in a year really
    -braun, thompson, grant are gone
    -tk taking an even bigger role. I want tk to grow into a shoot first mentality type player. 220-250 sog per year. He can easlily become a perennial 30 goal scorer.

    bad things:

    -hagg gets a full time role w/ ghost (hopefully freidman can take that)
    -AV
    -thierrien
    -fletcher
    -patricks status in the air
    -niskanen might decline fast. gotta move him to 2nd/3rd pair if he does.

    more positive than negatives. AV didn't really mishandle rookies in the regular season at least. While he didn't play frost much that is on fletcher as well. AV still threw frost/farabee on the top pp and into the top 6 which is nice..hak would never. At least we know AV can do well in the regular season..heres hoping our team can carry us to the finals next year!!!! Was a pleasure getting frustrated with y'all lmao

    Just a thought ...

    Couturier, Patrick, York, and a 1st for Eichel and Montour

    Lose Ghost in expansion, trade Voracek to Montreal for a 2022 1st

    Farabee Eichel G
    JVR Hayes TK
    Lindblom Frost Allison/Brink/NAK
    Raf Laughton Allison/NAK/Bunny

    Provorov Montour
    Sanheim Myers
    Zamula Hagg/Friedman

    Hart

    Hell no on that trade for Eichel. I dont care who it's for, Couts stays for his price tag and value. When you have a consistent Selke finalist under 28 years old for under 5M you don't move him. Nobody is giving a first for Jake, if they do, you take it.

    all message boards are dying.

    even if people could find this place easily (which they can't), why would anyone new sign up, rather than just using some facebook group, or discord, or posting on twitter?

    From an advanced stats perspective, Hagg is one of the worst players in the league.

    He is slow, terrible first pass, drops his stick like 50 times, and is not as physical as everyone says. He is always hemmed in his own zone, he makes hits that always takes him out of the play, and is not even a great pker. We dont even need more pkers on the team. We already have 4-5 and that doesn't even include hagg.
