I don't mind getting Toews' FOW (or Tavares, Spezza, etc) but I am not desperate to overpay.
Here are the 2 most recent trade offers I proposed in the last month
- Green for Kesler (both injury prone with very high upside)
- Chara for Toews (both solid in peripherals). I had just traded Berglund, Tarasenko, Wisniewski+ for him.
He had been discussing O'Reilly+ for one of Buff/Chara/Letang, and my counteroffer was turned down when I suggested the "+" should be Tavares
. Just don't think too highly of O'Reilly
