Get rid of stone!
He's a cup contender that just one the stanley cup. He has the same roster basically, WHY WOULD HE TRADE FOR THE FUTURE? Sorry to be aggressive but why would he trade for the future if he's a cup contender right now? The future is now.
First you forgot to check savards trade value, next you admitted that you wee wrong about stone, if you run into trouble, maybe packing a player like wingles with savard(if his trade value isnt great) plus a pick to get a more stable 1st line winger and then play stone in his correct posistion on the 3rd line
Johnny you need to trade hope, savard is an ahl starter and needs the ice time if you want him to grow
for your second line you should go
burakovsky lazar Dadonov ( Sinper , To way forward, playmaker )
give zibanejad powerplay time and not lazar
you should also make savard the starting in the AHL so he has more chance of growing
Johnny, you should play Blidh on the third line with Dadanov and Lazar. He has a decent offensive category so he can hold his own. The third line also needs some grit so he is a perfect fit on the left side instead of Wingels. Machenzie Savard shouldn't get traded because he grew by 5 overall during the offseason. He is ONLY 21 years old. He still has years of growth left. You took a chance with Stone, time to take a chance with Savard.
Don't worry about Savard's and Konecny's growth. Savard is growing just fine and with him at 21 years old, he still has plenty of time to grow. Savard may be NHL ready next year. Konecny is listed as a minor player, so play him in the minors this year, and have one of your 80 OVR centers replace any of your centers in case of injury.
Lol that's what I was thinking, could be possible.
johnny can you please trade Hoffman because he's not really helping burakovski grow and is not going have a better overall.
Bring up Travis Konecny. At 81 overall he needs to play in the NHL. The play role still says he's a minor league scorer but that will for sure change when you save and exit the game and the player roles are updated. Don't trade Mackenzie Savard. He grew from a 73 to a 78 last season but trade Brendan Hope. The auto goalie rotation will split the games between them and Savard needs to be the starting goalie if you want him to grow. Also, you are probably going to be a playoff team this year so trade your 1st round pick with Mark Stone and/or Mike Hoffman in exchange for a 1st line right winger. Make it realistic by trading it to a team that isn't a playoff team. Also, you should play Anton Blidh on the 3rd line. He grew from an 83 to an 85 in the offseason so you could probably just switch him with Tommy Wingels. Anton Blidh is the new Lou Morris! The defensive core looks perfect, led by the 2 Super Swedes. No changes are needed there. Don't trade Robin Lehner. He's only 86 overall but he's your franchise goalie. If anyone thinks Robin Lehner should be traded your crazy. What team trades a goalie that just won the Stanley Cup, President's Trophy, the Conn Smythe Trophy, the Vezina Trophy and the Jennings Trophy. Also could you show us Jack Eichel's individual stats as he wasn't listed as a 1st line forward. By the way, great free agent signings.
Zibanejad doesn't grow when he becomes 25 in gm mode. Unless he either has a fantastic year or he grew before he turned 25, he will not become a first line center.
Do you Blidh? You will.
Savard will grow. Goalies with that kind of trade value will grow for sure unless if they are drafted at 21. I've played enough GM mode to recognize who will be good and who will bust. Plus goalies take a while to develop. I had a goalie in a gm mode I was doing named Vorobiev who was 82 when he was 22. He is now 26 and is 88 overall with four straight Vezinas or something like that. Goalies take a while to grow, just be patient. He will be a backup by next year, starter after that, and then hopefully elite after that.
Get rid of Stone and Hope. Stone hasn't turned out near what everyone thought he would be and Hope wont be a NHL goalie for you, it'll be Savard/Lehner I believe
I think you should trade wingels for a 80-81 7th dman and bring up Konecny
Try to trade Hoffman and/or Stone for a young sniper or playmaker with first line potential. You could go after Hertl or Huberdeau. You may also have to add in wingles or picks.
Both have just missed the playoffs. San Jose may be looking to shake things up and get back to the Cup Finals as they did a couple years ago. They could be looking to add depth, to try to go for a cup. They have great centers, but not many good wingers. Florida can't waste too many years of Ekblad and with a bottom 5 finish last year could look to add depth, wingers (they have great centers), and Stanley Cup champions to help out the younger kids.
For Ottawa you could give lazar or dadanov a chance at a top six role, if you trade stone and hoffman. This can also help with the cap and give lazar or dadonov a big opportunity. If you move lazar up, you may have to get a 3rd line center, but if you move dadonov up, that will give blidh a chance on the third line, as you still have maroon.
John, I think that you should balance out your PP with two offensive defenseman, a big man in front, and two wingers who can get the puck on net. On defense, I say Karlsson Lindholm, both are young defenseman who can fire shots from the point when needed, and they can play solid D. For the wings, I suggest Turris (even though he is a center) and stone- his overall continues to stick in the mid to low 80's, but his stats in the goals and assists column make him seem like a high 80's player. There is no doubt that he will produce on the PP. And finally, the "big man" in front should be Burakovsky. Although Stone is an inch taller, burakovsky can bring a physical presence to the net front and bang in some garbage goals, as well as some finesse if he was put on the PP. Thanks for reading and good luck. LIKE SO JOHNNY SEES
Johnny get rid of stone he is not producing any offence is is not growing you should trade him for a good young goal scorer maybe some one like saad or
seguin but add a pick to the trade or anything you need in that trade
Johnny, move Wingels down to the fourth line or trade him away for a fourth liner and put Blidh on at least the third line. He's way too good of a player to be getting fourth line minutes, plus he'll open up some space for Lazar and Dadonov on the third line.
Also, Savard grew by 5 points this year. He could be NHL-ready at the beginning of next season.
Play Maroon on the 4th line, move Bildh to the 3rd line LW and trade Wingels for a pick. Maroon had way better numbers than Wingels last year.
