    Even if all of that is true, none of it is an adequate reason from walking away from talented players.

    I said if you are looking at Spooner, long-term, as a 3rd liner - some shit needs to change or its worthless.

    I actually thought the headline was going to be a play on words prior to reading some of the article.

    Pass on spooner. If anything one year bridge make him earn it. Way to much on the perimeter for me on a team full of that shit

    Good piece Phil. If Spooner attracts a lot of interest in the off season, he could be a good trade asset. I hit on the idea that trading either Zuc or Spoons in the thread I started today. Might be the best way to go, if it nets us a real building block.

    I fine keeping Spooner too, since he was good with the B's when he was healthy. He has more offensive upside in him. He fits very well with Fast and Hayes because they compliment him with their D and Fast's board work. If we resign him, 3 or 4 years can work. Two makes little sense. Four is fine if he is at 3.5 to 3.8. With no clauses he will be a movable asset anyway. Wrapping him up for his 4 best years, might be the best strategy. Spooner is not some meh 3rd liner, he has nice talent.

    I dunno. I'm firmly comfortable at three. That extra year might begin to tread on the entry points for players like Howden, and other forwards coming through the pipe right now.

    I would keep him, give him a manageable 4 year deal. This team has no one knocking on the door to take his spot, and we are lacking top 6 depth in the system. If we can draft someone now, by the time his contract expires, they will be ready to step in. This team needs some top 6 prospects badly.
