Really want those receivers and Darby back.

Seems like Bailey and Darby are going to walk though.

Mahomes ankle twist looked worse and actually bent inwards as Zachs bent outwards. It will be interesting Sunday to say the least. I think he will be really limited.

He seems like he's fine, tbh. I think it was overplayed.

Can we hang on to PL80? If not, does Montreal have anything we would want or would this have to be a 3 team trade.

In previous talks - they seem to not be willing to move pieces that we would need to trade him. They don't need to give up any assets. They can just wait.

PLD has really screwed us. He won't re-sign and has tanked his value. Seems like we're just going to hold onto him and just go all in for the next two seasons (depending on how we start necxt year).

Four players have been signed off the list from Jan 9th. Only a few must haves remaining:

Quarterback
Dakota Prukop (A)

Running back
None

Fullback
None

Receiver
Rasheed Bailey (A)
Nic Demski (N)
Greg Ellingson (A)
Janarion Grant (A)

Offensive line
Michael Couture (N)

Defensive line
Keion Adams (A)
Casey Sayles (A)

Linebacker
Jesse Briggs (N)
Les Maruo (G)

Defensive back
Alden Darby (A)
Mercy Maston (A)
Nick Taylor (A)

Kicker

None

Long snapper
None
Of the players remaining to be signed I would say Prukop, Demski and Grant are the biggest priorities. There are others I would like to see signed but may not be room include Bailey, Taylor and Sayles. I have a feeling the Bombers are going to let Couture walk. Matson and Taylor are coming off serious injuries and the Bombers may move on both of them. I don't see Ellingson returning.

Gauthier might be one of the smartest guys on the ST field.  At least a few times he's quietly saved entire games by taking the perfect angle to a breakaway returner.  He senses things before anyone else does, and he's fast to get to the ball.

Plus he played a lot of D snaps lately and he's not a gimmee for O's.  Solid, and important, depth.  What more could you ask for?

We probably don't win the 2019 Western Final if not for his alert special teams play late in the game that saved a certain TD.

If we can't sign Demski, I'd make a run at Gittens Jr (although he'll probably command a Demski-sized paycheque).  Barring that, I'd be OK with Lewis or Lawler.  None will come cheap, but I think you need to replace quality with quality.

Buffalo has been playing well on late. They have some exciting young players. This should be a good game.

Even Lawler might not be getting 2022 Lawler money. That's still up in the air. However I agree we can't be paying that kind of money.

I have never read or saw an interview where ND10 says he is looking for that kind of money.. It's all speculation. However I do believe ND10 is the best Canadian receiver in the CFL and probably looking for a 3 year deal, and would like to stay right here in Winnipeg where he works and lives in the off season.

Tough call when it comes down to ratio considerations. Lawler is a different kind of receiver and I'd say more of a pure deep threat and high point catch guy. Demski is also used in our running game

We struggled with finding good ratio options as depth in 2022, particularly on defence. On offence O'Leary-Orange looked to have upside.

Whether we make up the ratio somewhere in free agency is possible but an unknown question / risk. Timing of what happens with options once free agency happens is not something I look forward to. That applies to any player we might lose against what player we might gain.

Hopefully he does re-sign shortly. At the moment he's our biggest potential free agent IMO.



Not having Demski leaves you two obvious solutions: Having Wolitarsky and O'Leary-Orange both start. Or probably a better option: starting a Canadian safety and going with four imports at receiver. In 2023 that could look something like: Schoen, Bailey, Agudosi, Wolitarsky and another big import option with Demski's cash, Lawler, Lewis or something like that.

As good as Alexander is, I'm not sure how sustainable starting 6 Canadians is on offense indefinitely. Collaros isn't going to be superman forever. He is going to have to transition into more of a stationary pocket passer as he ages and he'll need plenty of weapons to help that transition.

Fair. I just mean he's obviously our most important player still not signed but even he shouldn't have a blank cheque. For example, hypothetically, I would rather have Lawler over Demski and make up the ratio somewhere else, if we get into that kind of cash.
