I've been thinking about the deadline and one question no one seems to be asking or talking about for that matter is our center ice depth how do you guys feel about going in to the playoffs with what we currently have down the middle? I'm concerned because if one of Matthew's or Taveras go down kampf is our second line center. He's been great this year but I think we need too add.
We've discussed severson and though he'd be a great add I keep coming back to dallas. We could literally get all our shopping done in one trade. I really like Pavalski he offeres depth down the middle in case of injury and would be a great fit with either Matthew's or JT. Obviously we could add klingberg to upgrade our d but we could also add Hakanpaa who would pair great with sandin and if we really wanted too we could add holtby.
I realize the only one with term that I mentioned is hakanpaa but I'm not as comcerned with getting a player with term because if we don't make it out of the first round changes will be made and if we have a good playoff run then it is worth it and is part of trying to win a Stanley Cup.
IMO fit is more important and I like the fit with the players I've mentioned compared to severson for example and onex is right Miller will vost too much.
Side note I saw a acgm made by a habs fan and I wanted to get your guys opinion on this deal personallyI like it for both teams but they'd need to add another 1st IMO.
Edmontons 1st (they traded chariot for edmontons 1st would be whatever teams 1st they get for him)
I think it would be an offseason move so take out hutch and Montembeault and switch seney to sda maybe or Abruzzese or someone like that, and they add a 1st in next years draft lottery protected of course (which I expect them to be better with price back). I would flip Allen for a 2nd or a 3rd n prospect then sign halak for cheaper.
What do you guys think?
Our C depth is fine, dont forget about Kerfoot
He was great last year, hes been good this year too.
I'm moving on from Severson, his recent stretch of games has proved to me he is wrong dude for us.
Pavelski I heard wants to remain and extend Dallas.
I like Klingberg but hes too pricey and his new deal... not something the Leafs can fit in.
Rental is only worth at the right cost, Klingberg will be out of reach.
I like Hakanoaa but h3s bottom pair man.
Not something to sweat about.
Montreal trade will spell trouble for both teams, just too unrealistic.
Listen to me, Dumba.
Dude plays aggressive defensively after playing next to Spurgeon and Brodin
He is puck mover, excellent guy to complement Muzzin
And hes has 1 more year, not a rental.
Lastly Addison is ready for that spot in Minnesota
