<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>SupremeBone</b></div><div>Okay, thanks for the input! I decided to keep Merzi because I figured there wasn't a huge press to solve the problem this year and, since I don't really see a great candidate to swap with (apart from maybe Husso in Detroit), I figured it wise to leave it until next year. I feel similarly about Laine.

As for the Marchinny contracts, I can see what you mean, but I think they're well positioned to gamble a bit on Chinakhov. If you were to adjust them, would you think something like 4 * 3 for Chinakhov and 5.5 * 5 for Marchenko? Or would your aim to go long-term for Marchenko even if it costs upwards of 7mil?</div></div>

I think Merzlikins' relationship with the team is too far deteriorated to keep him around next year, but if there's no trade partner, he's a prime buyout candidate. It's more a pressing need in my eyes than most, probably.

I'd absolutely lock up Marchenko for a 6x$7M if that's what it took, he should absolutely grow into that and could become a 40-goal scorer. Chinakhov needs more regular playing time in the top-6 before we do anything more than a bridge.

Overall, I think you've done some tidy work, the values look pretty good and the lines look realistic (though I'd also swap Silly and Jenner, as well as Jiricek and Severson for now).

As for Laine: he probably gets a chance to rebound next season with Columbus, and could be traded if he starts to look like the player he has been with us (nearly ppg). If he is traded this season, though, I'd imagine it's for a decent package (like 2nd, 3rd, plus good prospect) with some heavy conditions on picks that could upgrade it to an elite package (like upgrading to a 1st if he plays 40 games, 3rd to a 2nd if he scores 20 goals, etc). Something that puts most of the risk on the acquiring team, since we don't have any pressure to move him.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>FarhanLuigi</b></div><div>Sillinger is a 3rd liner at best. Greaves is a goalie and Jiricek is the only worthwhile prospect but not close to the value of the best goal scorer in the league. Try again.

Not enough for Marner. Columbus toxic org and their fans already tried and failed an offer sheet. Doubt Mitch wants to go to another loser franchise.

The funniest part is giving a career high 30 point player term 5M AAV LMAO</div></div>

Is this your bit? Gaslight opposing fans and disparage the franchise and city? It's every ACGM I've ever seen you comment on. It's pathetic. Do literally anything else with your life.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Jacketsman61</b></div><div>This just shows you how much you understand about the Jackets. The last thing the Jackets need to do is move a potential 2C in a package that includes our potential cornerstone RD for a player like Marner, while he is good, is not any better than what we already have with Laine. We also have Gaudreau, Chinakhov, Johnson, and Marchenko on the wings. Marner makes no sense.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>dk325</b></div><div>Yeah, all those idiot Jackets fans should be thrilled at the idea of watching their prospect pool get gutted for the Leafs' castaways. Why should they want to watch the Jackets try to develop a roster through drafting like almost every other team around the league does? Know your place and cheer for the Jackets to trade the young players you're excited for so they can miss the playoffs while also having no future.</div></div>

Don't waste your time, add to the ignore list and move on.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>sharcuda22</b></div><div>The Jiricek interviews from earlier in the year that caused a small uproar. He was frustrated (i think justifiably given Columbus’ defense) about not getting the same opportunities as other high end d prospects like Korchinski. There was a lot of a certain type of hockey fan that was essentially telling Jiricek he needs to put his head down shut up and play. From the outside looking in it appeared to have some discord between staff and Jiricek. Like i said in the description though with new management i feel he will stay.</div></div>

This is pretty much nail on the head for the situation: he was justifiably frustrated, management has changed, and he both got NHL playing time regularly at the end of the season and has gone back to tearing up the AHL in the playoffs. I doubt he'd still want out under new management.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>alwaysnextyear</b></div><div>If CBJ were to move him I'd have to think it would be a 1-for-1 swap of a comparable prospect that's ready to crack an NHL roster.</div></div>

And this:
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>RecycleShark</b></div><div>He's probably their best prospect. When I proposed a Jiricek to the Sharks trade on ACGM, a CBJ fan said they wanted Will Smith for Jiricek. Sound about right?</div></div>

Are both correct. He was #6 on Elite Prospect's <a href="" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">Top 100 NHL-Affiliated Prospects</a> at the start of the year, and sure it was a bumpy sophomore slump at times, but there's no reason to think he's not at least still top-20. And given this year's draft class...he may still be a top-20 NHL-affiliated prospect going into next year.

The biggest thing, though, is positional need for Columbus. We have the star center prospect (Fantilli), the middle-6 center prospects (Voronkov, Sillinger) the excellent wing prospects (Johnson, Marchenko), and the strong LD prospect (Mateychuk), and even a couple of starting goalie prospects (Graves, Tarasov, Ivanov). The only RD in the system that looks to have an NHL ceiling is Jiricek, as Ceulemans has been struggling and there's not much beyond that.

So, if we're moving has to be a similar-ceiling, young, right-shot D-man coming back, or it doesn't make sense. Honestly, <strong>I'd only entertain moving him if we land Levshunov, or are trading him straight-up for the 2nd overall pick to get Levshunov</strong>. He's the only right-shot D in this draft with Jiricek's ceiling.
