<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>mokumboi</b></div><div>1- Mittlestadt is an AHLer now? Cozens? What? Besides, Eichel almost takes this one by himself. Not buying it.

2- Okay, so let's count those other two...

3- Haha what??? "If the best one gets injured" is not how this works, man. Besides, there's no one in Seattle as good as Hintz and Pavs was nearly a ppg last season.

4- I'll let Columbus slide, as well, so that's three...

5- Bro. You're reaching like Mr. Fantastic now, but I'll go ahead and give you Nashville just to compromise. So that's four...

I could quibble with the rest of your comment, but will opt to focus instead. So I'm giving you four teams with inferior C stables (and frankly, I do not agree that all of them are). Last time I checked, being 27th out of 32 teams is weak. And that's not even factoring in how many of those 26 ahead of them are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay ahead of them at the C position.

Sorry, man, I cannot even fathom how anyone could see this group and say "No, that's not a realtively weak group of Cs compared to all the other teams. Cmon. I'm not saying anything remotely controversial here.</div></div>

You act like Seguin isn't injury prone

Mittelstadt isn't good. Sorry not sorry. Cozens played on the wing with Reinhart at 2C, but now Reinhart is gone too! So yes, Buffalo has a team of AHLers down the middle, it's why they are far and away the worst team in the NHL and thats WITH Eichel.

This is an average C core. It's not great, but there are worse, even in their own division... look at Anaheim for example. This isn't controversial. While Gourde is out, what you're saying makes sense, but when he's healthy, this is a pile of average in the league.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>mokumboi</b></div><div>1- It's very true that he had a huge debut night. Since then, he has 11 points in 48 games. And it's hardly a hot take to note that his skating is poor. It's not a secret.

2- It's very true that Gourde ended up playing some 3C, but most of his time there has been on the wing. And there's a big difference between doing the job of a 3C and doing the job of a 1C. Gourde's a good player, but this is not a good situation for him. As for Wennberg, his successful phase was like 4-5 years ago by now. Compared to the other 2Cs in the league it's another big matchup problem.

3- Relative to the other C cores around the league, it's undeniably weak. You've practically admitted such without actually admitting such. How many teams can you have an inferior C stable to the Seattle group above? Even the Sabres have them beat at C (for the moment, anyway).</div></div>

You are horribly mistaking a lack of top end talent with a lack of depth. Sure, there's not a 1C... but 2-4C are all AHLers in Buffalo. I'd take this C core over Detroit, Buffalo, Ottawa (for now)... even somewhere like Dallas if Seguin gets injured, or Columbus. I'd consider this on par with places like New Jersey and Nashville and even Montreal to an extent. There's no 1C. Fine, but a lot of teams don't have that 1C. All 4 of these guys are good players that are capable of playing in the NHL (Berniers aside, we obviously don't know that much). I do think you need to re-evaluate the difference between depth weaknesses like you're saying and talent issues.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>BeastModeUnknown</b></div><div>Top LW would be Matthew Tkachuk at this point, and with how the Center role is, interestingly enough you won't even get close. Tell me how your team isn't in a retool. You see next year's free agency class. You guys have regressed over the past 2 years, and during yesterday Edmonton completely passed you up on the list for chances to push for playoff spots. Vancouver is on the edge as well but Seattle made a bunch of moves, and I'd bet they would do better than you guys at this very point as well. You have 12 Million in cap space to sign 5 quality players and a backup tendy. Kylington, Zadorov, Valimaki, Mackey, Dube, and Gawdin are all still neding to be re-signed. Zadorov's original ask was 5.9 Million and it just recently came down to 4 million. So that leaves about 8 Million to spend on a backup goaltender and 5 different players. Need I mention Flat cap. Tkachuk is going to get a raise, Gaudreau is going to want a raise, Mangiapane is going to want a raise, that also doesn't show you how much Monahan is gonna want in 2 years. 1st Round Pick, 3rd Round Pick, Middle 6 Forward (Played a ton of Top 6 minutes), and a quality Joel Hofer which can be switched in for someone else but Hofer is worth around probably a 2nd in terms of quality ceiling. On 1 year left on a deal. You won't get anything more for someone like this. If you want to look at players with similar production and on 1-year deals. Hall 50% retained, Lazar for 2021 2nd and Anders Bjork. 2022 1st Round Pick is better than a 2021 2nd Round Pick and I'm going to say a 3rd Round Pick, Hofer, and Sanford probably gets you more than Bjork. Plus you aren't giving up another piece like Lazar. So tell me how stupid I am when the market it set itself up that way. You really think I didn't read into it? Calgary won't have money to sign both Tkachuk and Gaudreau, and when Monahan is up in a couple of seasons from now.</div></div>

I mean I was talking about how the <em>move </em>didn't feel like a "retool" move, rather it feels more like a "rebuild" move. If we move Gaudreau we'd have to find some way to find those goals and points and this trade simply leaves us with too much of a gap to bridge. So, we'd only consider a move like this if we were throwing in the towel and looking to the future.

And, well, we <em>are </em>retooling. Last year BT bet on some 800k contracts having breakout or bounce-back years and lost on all of those bets. This time around he's making more intentional additions that fit with a coach that has every intention of making this team competitive. The 6 year deal for Coleman is a retool move. Same goes for Zadorov.

We are in a tricky cap situation but until extensions start rolling in shipping out key difference makers is a complete mistake. Honestly, the player that's higher on the list of getting moved is Monahan given how well Lindholm fit into the centre position.

And, for the record, Gaudreau has 42 (edit: actually 52!) more points than Tarasenko in 11 less games and is 2 years younger. Tarasenko can be the difference maker that can swing games at times but his injury history leaves a lot to be desired.
