  3. An article out of Chicago: "Bowman should not bring back Zadorov on a long-term deal. Both his WAR and SPAR were zero this season. That means he is a “replacement-level” player. So, by these metrics, if you replaced him with your average AHL call-up or free agent, there would be no change in team wins or overall points." https://thehockeywriters.com/blackhawks-2020-21-player-grades-nikita-zadorov/

  5. I don't know if the ask is "crazy", but IMO, I would be uncomfortable with parting with 6 players for a single player who is a "star", not a "superstar". The Flame's organisations player pool is thin enough that I'm not sure it could take a 6 - 1 hit.
  6. The qualifying offer must be 100% of his AAV, not the $9M that he will receive in the final year of his current contract. So, a multiple year offer around $7.5M - $7.75M may be possible.
  7. I recall that it was Ken Linesman who was instrumental in lowering the draft eligibility from 20 to 18. http://www.originalhockeyhalloffame.com/news-events/linseman.html
  8. Gallagher might work at better digging out pucks for Gaudreau and Monahan.
  9. I feel that Tanev might be the best fit for Hanifin on the second pairing.
  10. Yes, I feel that Markstrom will be shooting for the moon on his next contract.
  11. I feel that Markstrom will be too expensive. I'm all for Plan B, Holtby.
  12. I still wince from Fletcher fleecing Riseborough in the Gilmour trade.
  13. I'm not unhappy about the return, it was probably the best that could be expected due to his current play. I feel that Frolik was a very good free agent signing and performed quite well for 3 of the 4.5 seasons that he had been with the Flames. Crossing my fingers that the scouts find a gem with the early 4th round San Jose draft pick.
