<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>jr400</b></div><div>I don't have a problem with losing a player for nothing if he gives you a chance to win the cup before he goes. It isn't really for nothing because you get back his cap space, which has value. I'd rather see Toronto hang onto Matthews and Nylander for one more year than trade them and weaken the team now. Calgary was a contending team with Gaudreau so I wouldn't have traded him. I would have even been ok with keeping Tkachuk for another year, though it probably made sense to trade him once Gaudreau left.</div></div>

I agree it's probably worth it for Toronto to hang onto both Matthews and Nylander I just believe if Treliving does trade one of the 4 it'll probably be Nylander. Marner is the one who should be traded but it'd have to happen real soon before his full NMC kicks in for the last 2 years of his contract. Treliving won't move that fast so he won't be able to trade Marner leaving Nylander and Matthews as the only options.

Gotta disagree with the rest though. gaudreau isn't a player you build a team around he's a soft contact adverse perimeter player you bring in (for the right price that is) to help an already contending team in need of more playmaking. IOW he's a complimentary player not a core player to build around. Tkachuk and Lindholm were the keys to that line last year not gaudreau he was just along for the ride collecting easy points for passing the puck to the guys doing all the hard work.

Agreed he got a good return for Matthew but blew it by overpaying Huberdeau about as badly as Dubass overpaid Marner.

LOL, thank your lucky stars for that. He would if he could!
