Who else sees the Leafs giving up two first rounders and a prospect for Ryan? It'll be Kessel all over again, and Anaheim will get two lottery picks...

Wow. Talk about being off the mark.

I'm going to take the unpopular stand-point and agree with you. I don't think Gomez is done, and it would be a delight to see him prove the commentariat wrong this season.

Don't feed the trolls.

Stop being the voice of reason. You might make some sense and crush the egos of hundreds of forum posters! :)

It's a double-edged sword. If I was Claude Giroux, I'd notice that my GM has a history of offering sheets to other teams. Then when his contract expires at the end of the season, he sits and waits for a big payday via a sheet. It'll be open season on the Flyers, particularly Giroux. Can anyone NOT imagine him getting a Weber/Parise/Sutter-esque offer sheet next year if he hasn't signed an extension?

As per #3: As with news reports, it's usually the first, vague report that gets widely disseminated. Even if Nagy was the one who said the remark, the fact that original news stories ran that Doan was the perpetrator has done the damage. Redactions and corrections don't work - they're usually buried in small print in obscure places. How many rabid language-centric Francophones really know that Nagy was the one who made the remark?

If that's the case, it's open season on Giroux at season's end. ...And if we could land 3-4 first rounders (even late ones) for PK, I'd go ahead and do it. PK's a stud, but we're technically in a rebuild and those picks could be worth it for the future.

Why blame society? He might just have been mentally ill, or there could have been any number of diverse factors motivating him to lash out like that. It's easy to blame society when bad things happen. Doesn't mean it's society's fault.

Four first rounders for Weber? I'd take it, even though Weber is a beast.
