Pay Seattle Gourde and one of Killorn/Palat for them to take Tyler Johnson. They're going to take Gourde anyway and this gets around Johnson's NTC. Dumps $15M in cap hit immediately.

Is Foote a bust? Sometimes it may take longer for dmen to develop, too soon on bust category yet

Cal Foote is 22 years old. He's living off being a first round draft pick (#14 OA) and his father being Adam Foote.

I was thinking Gourde or Joseph.

And, yet, as Ohio goes, so goes the nation.


...except in the last election where Trump won Ohio in a landslide and lost the electoral and popular vote.

Absolutely agree. The same way GMs refused to "help" Tampa's cap situation last season. A brilliant plan that totally worked for them.

Yeah it’s to the point where you wonder if his foot speed hasn’t improved yet will it ever?

If Barb Underhill can't fix that, then it's unfixable.

$5.1m in sweet sweet cap relief.

Would have rather Johnson, but you take what you can get.

I think the play now is probably to find a way to move one of the top-six wingers to solidify that third line again. Otherwise, it's an awful lot of pressure to put on a big group of kids.

Agreed. Our Grind Line is toast. Goodrow gone to NYR. Gourde gone to Seattle. Coleman is as good as gone, unless he agrees to play for peanuts to stay.

I was skeptical of Gourde's contract when it was announced, but he has since won me over. I hate to see him go.

Barb Underhill is the only reason I haven't given up on Foote yet.

Unless she has a chisel to knock the concrete out of his skates she won't be be able to help.

I like your optimism on this and while Barb is the best at what she does she is not a magician. Watching him skate is so painful, I just don't see how he will be able to fix it.
