There is no guarantee that Krug or Hall sign with Detroit let alone both. Me being realistic is not the same thing as acting like it’s the end of the world. Detroit doesn’t have the pieces to compete and that’s fine, we’re rebuilding and adding to our core. You simply don’t know Detroit’s roster and farm nearly as much as I do. I’ve improved numerous and posted a few realistic ACGMs so not sure how that’s deemed “lazy” but rather realistic so how about you research content before getting defensive when someone questions you about it. Remember, you don’t have to hit publish on every single ACGM especially if you want someone to critique it.
I only mentioned Hollywood movies/video games because you think players will void their NTC/NMC which they initially wanted for the greater good of a team they no longer play for. You have yet to provide a single reason why someone would want to get paid less and go to a losing team except for the greater good of a previous team.
Detroit’s not going to lose if Palat joined, he'd bring great leadership to the team, just as the other guys would, there wouldn't have to be any guarantee, Krug and hall aren't the only options, and like I said about being a mature veteran, these guys would understand why they are being moved, even if they get moved and get paid less, they could land just as big contracts once expired just as Edler did in Vancouver, I mean would you have signed Edler to a 6 million dollar contract? That is a serious question, the guy's highly overrated, and these three guys i just moved are a whole lot better than him, that being said, they could very well make more than him, but they aren't, Johnson already and obviously dry swallowed the low payment pill, he's really good, he deserves at least another mill on his contract, I just find it bad that you all think because a player has a NTC/NMC contract, a player is untouchable, everyone is easily replaceable, regardless of how good you are, and teams wouldn't be helping Tampa in this situation, Tampa would be making the teams better, I could seriously see Palat bringing Filppulas game back, McDonagh solidifying the Devils defense, and Johnson playing a consistent top 6 role in Ottawa, I seriously don't know how you can't see that, the 3 teams already have good players playing other roles on each respectable team, it really does blow my brains away seeing that you do not see that, I mean if I offered you Draisaitl and McDavid for the top 5 players on the team you cheer for and you said no, I'd laugh it off and walk away, that's exactly what you are telling me right now, I can't see why you don't think it would make each team better, even these veterans could be able to see that, and im pretty sure of that, they'd all make the playoffs next year
