<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>kafle22</b></div><div>man this is terrible
there will most likely be a cbo so get russell out of there -<strong> Did it</strong>
chaisson and khaira arent worth a third and a fifth, more like a fifth and a sixth - <strong>A top NHL PP unit player and Cup champion + Top NHL PKer are worth it, especially with so many draft picks to use</strong>
Personal opinion but i would keep koshkinen <strong>- Lehner is much younger and much better, Halak is better and cheaper</strong>
I would take arcibald over poolparty becuase archi can play solid pk - <strong>Replaced Arch with 2 better and cheaper PKers</strong>
Dont know why red wings would want larsson and kassian, they are still rebuilding
Montreal wont take a -46 dude</div></div>

Really?
Already bought out Russell, did you look?
Chiasson net front presence on historical PP unit, versatile and Cup Champion means something to a young team and coaches/GMs. Khaira was a top PKer, these players are worth it, especially when they have plenty of of to spare
Lehner is younger and better, Khodobin is better and cheaper
Replaced Archibald with cheaper and better PKers. JP averaged more than 6.5 shots per game in Liiga, he had nearly 100 more shots than the 2nd most guy in the League. He scored 12 goals as an 18 year old rookie, same number as JA's best. He is 6'4" and flies and he is only 22, Archibald was 26 when he played his first full season what do you want on your team?
Toughness, experience and leadership, Yzerman knows this stuff
AA's old GM traded for him, he scored 30 goals last year. He is better and cheaper than Drouin

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>aedoran</b></div><div>Yes his +/- is bad to the point where it has become laughable. If you start at the 2015-16 season (AA 1st season) and and sum they seasons AA tied for 6th worst with Simmonds. The players that are worse in descending order are Barrie, Hutton, Ekman-Larsson, Severson and Ristolainen. There are some pretty good defensemen there which is probably why no one puts a lot of stock in +/-. The Wings have 12 players in the bottom 24 players in the +/- category players who are very good defensive players so it points to a much bigger issue. Howard has contributed to that by being pulled 5 times so far and hasn't won a game since 10/29/2019 and Bernier hasn't been playing this well all season. Now I'd like to point something out you either want AA or you don't want him. Trading for him and then arguing how bad he is doesn't really work because if he is so bad why do you want him?</div></div>

Dmen should have the worst +/-, since they play a lot more than forwards. Barrie and Severson are known more for their offense than their defense and play big minutes, I bet they both have been dinged for many SH goals against, while Severson has been on too many awful teams. Ristolainen is big and scores, but he plays too high on the depth chart (he is a good 3rd pair Dman) and has played on many terrible teams. Hutton is surprising, but he might not really be an NHL calibre Dman. OEL is great, but he plays monster minutes vs the best players in the world and he has never been on a good team. Simmonds is surprising, but likely he is a good PP point producer, but struggles at 5v5 vs the better NHL players and of course he is not a great skater, so he might struggle on the back check.

AA probably isn't directly involved in a lot of the goals against, but he is a well-known cherry-picker who probably is out of position often in the defensive zone structure, is probably often very late to get back into his dzone to help anyone and of course weak goaltending is factor.

In looking at it more closely AA has worn the Wings green jacket in 2 of the last 3 years, but early in his career he was nowhere near the worst on the team, but he was likely facing the weakest competition as well, whereas now he goes up against the best.

His poor season and horrific +/- is an indication that he has not been a very good NHL player this season and so his value should not be the same as it was last year when he scored 30 goals. So why is he worth even a 2nd rounder? Doesn't make sense.

McDavid is an elite turd polisher and no one would argue that Patrick Maroon, Zach Kassian, Joakim Nygard or Ty Rattie are better scorers or more skilled than AA. James Neal IS a better scorer, but the Real Deal has no Wheels, so many of his goals this year are from standing around the net and on the PP..
