<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>justaBoss</b></div><div>I'm a huge fan of Faksa, and I too do believe he hasn't reached his full potential. Every shift on ice he gives it all. Personally, I'd only move him for a first round pick plus something. I'd be so freaking pissed if DAL dealed him somewhere else and he starts to shine offensively, like for example what happened with Danault after he got moved to MTL.
As for Florida's wings, if Hoffman and Dadonov walk, I'd say they still need players in these positions.</div></div>
Weegar is the defense equivalent of Faksa. Workhorse, statistically great, drastically undervalued. Except Dallas' need at 2RD is much larger than their need for a bottom six center that they can't make work in the top 6.
I mean, look at this team vs. what you have now. Which team is more difficult to play against? Does the trade make your team better?
You raise a fair point about the NMC/NTC, but it's pretty rare that middle of the pack guys get NMCs. Usually NTCs, which don't impact the expansion draft.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>McGruff</b></div><div>Yeah Mark is younger but he's also a ton worse than Halak (whose doing well as a 34yr ol - your buddy Lou just hung them at 40).
Prime!? Lets be real, he's 2 or 3-years past that probably (has a bum knee and head issues if I recall).
So you'd sign J Mark at US$5/6Mil for 4/5/6 yrs?? (that's the rates being posted) - until he's 35/36?
If I'm JB (and with all the dead 3rd/4th line money I've c o c k e d up) I'd save my $$$ for EP/QH etc. and sooner tank with the kids versus muddle-around the middle-of-the-pack and hope for 1st round playoff exits to please the blueberry Boss...</div></div>
Halak is also in a more sheltered position, and is 35 years old. Next year he could fall off a cliff, and he has not played in a starter's role for a long time now. His stats on paper might be better, but he has also had considerably more time as a backup and has almost always been on contending teams. Markstrom has had those numbers on a bottom of the barrel team, and this year has been a top 10 goalie. Given the difference in games, right now, there's no comparing Markstrom to Halak, Khudobin or Greiss. He's obviously better (right now, career numbers are irrelevant with this signing)
Markstrom's best year has been this year. Goalies tend to prime later (28 - 33), so signing him at probably 4/5 years buys us 3 good years and possibly 1 or two bad ones. Still though, if we bring him back, I see it more likely that Seattle takes him next year, so there is little worry about his long term game. Losing that contract, as well as the 6M cap of Edler will allow plenty of room for those signings.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>McGruff</b></div><div>Markstrom's (and Anton) are very late-bloomers. Marky w/ a career .911 sv %-age, a losing NHL record, IS NOT the CUP guy either, and will not be claimed if US$5/6Mil is the contract that's floated by many ACGMs!!

Issue is Markstrom is IN his prime, and these other guys are 3/4/5 years older and are LEAVING their prime. Also, Anton never had a starter's role and was always shielded by being in a backup role on mostly good teams.
