    Yep, I already hate him and can't wait until he's fired.

    If it is a business you may trade him, if it is hockey you keep him and let his contract expire or resign him, one of the only players outside of Laughton that has any balls. If Couturier is your toughest guy on the ice you may make friends with the refs but will lose many games #Co0tshuggybearwillnotfightbecauseiamapussy

Not as a punishment but we need to know who’s going to be with our team in the future and if we can’t sign him, we can’t let him walk for nothing.

    I assume that Simmonds won’t sign...if he does it’ll be on the teams good terms. When he doesn’t accept I put out the world publicly to every team in the league and give them 2 weeks to come up with their best package and we’ll make a decision on his future then.
    Good post. Have to get what you can with the team struggling like it is.

    Then package for a 2 to 3 year goaltender upgrade.

    Simmonds is the ultimate example of the failure of Hextall. He really had no plan. If he wasnít prepared to go for it by now then Simmonds should of been traded two years ago when his value was highest. Why keep around an aging power forward who everyone knew wanted to break the bank on his final contract if you had no intention of being competitive. It was shortsighted and poor asset management.

    Simmonds should be moved but will get the biggest return at the deadline. It will be nowhere near what he could of gotten but there is zero reason to let an asset walk for nothing.
