    I don't buy it. In the meantime piss the money away on Shattenkirk? They easily have the money if they were to spend it right.

    And why they're cleaning up mismanaged cap space find a way to ditch Skjei and Smith too for whatever picks you get and reallocate that to Hayes/Kreider. They're also going to lose Zucc's contract too. They have many options to keep both without impacting a chase for top FA(s).

    I think like someone said, Buch could probably score 40 with a Tavares,Crosby esque center, why not try him with Hayes while he's hot.

    No way he’s potting 40. 30? Maybe I buy it. But he will never be a 40 goal scorer in this league, or at least not based on his current play.

    Crosby and Tavares are also very different. Tavares genuinely can play with anyone. Not everyone can play with Sid. There’s plenty of evidence to support that. I question if Buch has the necessary skill set to succeed on a Crosby line.

    My biggest complaint with Buch is that it seems like he hasn't gotten any stronger since he joined the league. Things would come so much easier if he spent more time in the weight room.

    Maybe they don't want him to gain weight, idk, but he's just so weak on the puck and along the boards that I don't think it matters how hard he works lol

    I thought he had a reputation of being a little chippy, but he just looks like his dog died 24/7.

    Buchnevich is Artem Anisimov. Lots of hype for a player that is pretty average. Nothing wrong with average so long as management plans around that accordingly.

    Anisimov never had much hype, and Buch isn't nearly the player that Ani was - not in style or effectiveness. The only things they have in common are being lanky and Russian.

    There was fan hype for sure after he was a Ppg player in the AHL. At the time they broke in they were both our best prospect. Unfortunately for Buch, I think Artems ceiling of 45 points is about where Buch will land.

    Probably right but AA was and is a very good all around player. Buch is not yet. He has value and can be a quality player going forward here but he isn’t the star fans hoped he’d be.

    We want a Kovalev! We want a Kovalev! We want a Kovalev! (Except for the selfish puck hogging and too-long shifts of course.)

    I'd take Anisimov. Heck, I'd take Zherdev.

    I'd take Kovalev right now!!! What is he....46 or something years old?? He's still going to be better than any of these Vets we have playing right now...including our "ALL STAR", Mats Zucca-no-effort

    Kovalev is the last thing we need.

    Need a Messier, Leetch and Graves and a few others before we “need” an enigmatic 50-pt winger

    He’s more than a 50pt player and the comparison is to Buch, be nice and play along
