<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Trickster</b></div><div>I think Gudas is 3rd pair 100%.
Look at him with Capitals, him and Jensen have been competing for whose worse.
I use to think Gudas was better but I got shown the light on him.
Once we got Holl his new deal, the thought spending a few million on 3rd D is not worth it.
Just use Rosen there.
DeMelo IMO is good choice to target but will be highly sought after I fear.</div></div>
I get your point but you gotta remember what is required of whomever Rielly's partner will be... They need to be able to clear the front of the net, take away passing lanes, take away shooting lanes/block shots, and play with an edge. I'm sure Rielly's pairing will have to play against the oppositions top players, however, it won't be as much because we have Muzzin's pairing now. I think Gudas can handle it, I know he's had a bad season but I think he'd be fine for that role. The question becomes: what will it take to pry away someone like Severson compared to signing Gudas who will only cost $ and if we need to trade player(s) away then we will gain more assets in return. Also, it will depend on what Gudas' next contract will be.
Are you against bringing him here in general or is there a contract that works for you where you would rather have Gudas than trade for someone like Severson? Same goes for DeMelo.
One last thing who do you think would be the most realistic to acquire between Severson, Murphy and Savard? I would think Savard would be the cheapest/easiest to get but I'm more intrigued between Murphy and Severson....what say you good sir?
We may be living in a resident evil movie but at least we have CF to help pass the time🤫🤔🤪 lol
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>OldNYIfan</b></div><div>Okay, as the senior Anaheim guy on this website, I have to step in here.
We Ducks fans are resistant to the very idea of trading Manson because that would make a currently unsuccessful team a real disaster unless the player coming back was an improvement, which by definition would be a dumb trade for the other team unless significant other pieces were included. That's why Anaheim guys subconsciously "think Manson should get a Norris return."
If our right side were Pulock, Manson, Gudbranson and Fox or Marino, then Anaheim would move Manson and this trade would be an overpayment by at least Dermott if not Johnsson, but neither he nor Bracco are of much interest to us. IF our right side was as deep as our left, I would trade Manson for something like two seconds and Liljegren -- Toronto gives up future value for current maturity and Anaheim gets a return superior to that local rivals Los Angeles got for Martinez.
<a href="/users/Hockeytor15" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@Hockeytor15</a> , if you're going to assume the mantle of speaking for Anaheim fans, you should be courteous. (Note that I don't say "more courteous" because you haven't been courteous at all in this discussion.)</div></div>
You're one of the most knowledgeable people on this site. You're always willing to share your advice and try to educate people, in a very intelligent, and polite way. Unfortunately, you can't teach those who don't want to learn, especially when they get stuck in their ways... It's like talking to a brick wall and there seems to be a lot of them on here. I'm not sure how old you are but it's very clear you have a vast wealth of knowledge. When I grew up there was no Google search... You had to learn the old fashion way.... By... Wait for it... Listening to your elders because they've been around the block once or twice and when you're young you don't know what you don't know. People these days think they are right about everything and everyone wants to be a internet tough guy until you call them out on their bs. I wish people would actually listen to people who know more than them and be open-minded like I've always been instead of being so stubborn. It's better to admit you're wrong and look like a fool for 5seconds than get your back up against a wall and look like a fool to the point that people can't take you seriously.
I had someone tell me you can't win a Stanley Cup playing on the fourth line lol... Some people...
