I was disappointed when it became clear he wasn’t going to sign with us. I also thought it was a mistake on his part, because I thought his path to the NHL would have been easier in DET than elsewhere. But I’m much happier with our current situation of Ned and Cossa, than I think I would have been if he did sign with us and either Ned or Cossa didn’t happen as a result. Best of luck to him!
He thinks it’s going to be easier in Toronto lol ok like you said best of luck to him

But does it make sense for Carolina?

$6M?
Dylan Larkin makes $6M
Larkin 44 games 9-14-23
KK - 56 games 5-15-20
In a lot fewer minutes.
And he is getting closer to 50 percent on faceoffs. And he has some nice playoff numbers.
I like the way he plays.

But $6M for 20 points in 56 games.
If Montreal balks, Carolina owes a first and third.
And Carolina isn't such a lock for the playoffs.
Waddell is a moron. Kotkaniemi had a good rookie year but has regressed since. He’s looking a lot like Riley Sheahan career wise. Not worth the $ and not worth the qualifying raise next year. Meanwhile he moved Ned over 500k and got fleeced on Jake Bean.

Carolina probably picks at least 15th or later. That’s what makes this a tough call for the Habs. Given this year’s draft class. i’d take my chances on the Canes pick in the lottery on this one though. If Montreal is a playoff team they can use the Canes pick to get Nick Leddy at the deadline.
I agree that Waddell is a moron. But, from Montreal's perspective, 1st and a 3rd from a playoff team is not the best return on a former 3rd overall pick, who has potential to grow into a 40-50 point center in a few years.

He signed with an AHL team. 32 NHL teams passed on him, including Detroit.

And Montreal turned right around and made a trade with Arizona for Christian Dvorak in exchange for some of the picks they got from Carolina.

Cholo gets a one-year two way deal with the Kraken. Probably Europe if this doesn't work out?

He’s getting 130k in the AHL. He’ll probably stay over here a few years and keep trying to make it. He’s a hard worker, probably a good locker room guy, if he doesn’t make it he can probably still carve out a nice career like Lashoff has.
