NHL trade grades: Oilers come out on top in Milan Lucic-James Neal trade

Tag: 贵族宝贝

first_imgIn one swift trade Friday, the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames both checked off boxes on their offseason to-do list, swapping left wingers Milan Lucic and James Neal .The deal is 1-for-1, however, the Oilers will retain some of Lucic’s salary and send the Flames a conditional draft pick (Neal must score at least 21 goals and Lucic must score at least 10 fewer goals than Neal, as per Mark Spector). With Lucic, the Flames get another older guy in the locker room, one that has won a Stanley Cup before, has playoff experience and can help continue to build a positive culture. He also fills Neal’s void as a physical presence and is an aggressive, big guy who can bring size and grit to the lineup.Still, Calgary does lose the opportunity to see Neal potentially bounce back and also gets an expensive player on the decline.It’s hard to say if Brad Treliving won this deal, but if the goal was to bring in someone who could mentor the Flames’ youth and bring more off the ice than on, it can be considered a victory. Just following up on @GenePrincipe and @RealKyper — only Lucic/Neal involved with EDM retaining some money and including a conditional draft pick.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) July 19, 2019NHL free agency: Complete list of all 31 teams’ RFAs, UFAsThis deal adds even more intensity to the long-standing Battle of Alberta, as each club again swaps players; to kick off free agency, each team flipped goaltenders when Mike Smith signed with the Oilers and Cam Talbot signed with the Flames .While both 31-year-old forwards had down years, each failing to exceed 20 points with their respective clubs, they are both much-needed assets and should be able to benefit both teams; however, every gift comes with a price (quite literally in regards to each team’s salary cap situation).Here’s how each team fared in this trade.Edmonton received from CalgaryLW James NealCalgary received from EdmontonLW Milan LucicOilers: A-This deal can actually be considered a big win for the Oilers.Edmonton needed one thing this offseason: goal-scoring. They get that with Neal (sans 2018-19, but we’ll get to that in a second).Yes, he wasn’t performing up to standards with the Flames last season, having only registered just seven goals and 19 points in 63 games. But ultimately, he’s a proven goal-scorer who should be able to fit in perfectly in Edmonton’s lineup while also providing much-needed offense.Last season was the only “off” year of Neal’s career, and a lot of outside factors also play into this; not only did he average little ice time (a career-low of 14:57) and play mainly on the bottom-6 — and sometimes solely on special teams — but he also battled an injury over the course of the 2018-19 campaign. Prior to this past year, he’d never scored less than 20 goals over the course of his 10 seasons in the NHL. One poor season is not at all a reflection of his play, and additionally, he’ll likely receive more opportunity in Edmonton than he did back in Calgary.Still, there lies the concern in this obvious question: is there enough confidence to say that Neal can find his game with the Oilers?Let’s put it this way: Neal has proven that he still has the speed and ability to play on the top-6, and working with new head coach Dave Tippett, who he developed and rounded out his game with back when both were in Dallas, he’ll likely find his touch again. Not to mention, there’s a vacancy for a top-line winger, and he can play on either wing despite being a left-hand shot. If he plays with Connor McDavid (who he’s trained with in the offseason before), they’ll be able to find chemistry.RELATED: What does Josh Archibald bring to the Oilers’ lineup?And that’s the end goal for Edmonton: a top-6 offense. They averaged just 2.79 goals per game last year, and Alex Chiasson was one of just three 20-goal scorers, which also included McDavid (41) and Leon Draisaitl (50). Neal will be able to come in and add at least some kind of momentum, especially thanks to his strong shot and quickness.Although losing Lucic means losing a physical presence, Neal fills that void with his 6-3, 212-pound frame, which also has allowed him to adopt a physical style of play and also work well in front of the net and in the corners.The only downside to this deal is the salary; the Oilers were able to unload Lucic’s deal that carries a $6 million AAV, but in return, they take on Neal’s $5.75 million annual salary and also retain salary on their end (undisclosed). Still, they didn’t have a lot of money to work with before the trade, and given Lucic’s play, Neal is perhaps the strongest return they could have gotten.In the end, though, the Oilers are getting a player who has shown that he can still score and has had just one poor performance over his 11-year tenure in the league, where he’s accumulated 514 points over 766 games. He’s physical and a pure scorer, knows Tippett and his systems and will easily fill the void left by Lucic, who hasn’t been able to find his game with Edmonton and could not provide the offense they needed.Ken Holland hit the jackpot with this trade.Flames: B-The trade from the Flames side isn’t the worst; Neal didn’t fit in their systems or necessarily fulfill their needs in the lineup. However, Lucic hasn’t been great over the last few seasons, and his play has seen a significant decline over the last two years.In his first year with the Oilers, he was able to help establish a positive culture and produce offensively, racking up 23 goals and 50 points. However, the next two seasons, he’d combine for just 54 points; he fell to just 10 goals in 2017-18, and this past year, he had just six goals and 20 points.Overall though, this doesn’t mean much for the Flames; they didn’t lose a key offensive piece in Neal, and they won’t be getting one in Lucic — not only that, they don’t really need it with their current depth.So what does Calgary get with this deal? Mainly a strong off-ice presence, something that the Flames need more than anything given their youth; their average age is 26.7, which puts them among some of the youngest clubs in the league. Some could also argue that a lack of veteran presence (despite having Mike Smith) was one of the big reasons that they couldn’t make a deep playoff run despite clinching the Western Conference in 2018-19.MORE: Can Cam Talbot find his game with the Flames?last_img read more

first_imgPlanting out young honeybush seedlings. (Image: Marina Joubert) The Cyclopia maculata honeybush speciesgrows naturally in the area around Genadendal. (Image: Marina Joubert) MEDIA CONTACTS • Marina Joubert   Southern Science   +27 83 409 4254RELATED ARTICLES • South Africa develops rooibos flavour wheel • Research to boost rooibos exports • Rooibos yoghurt fights cancer • Emerging farmers on the rise • Online ad help for small businessWilma den HartighSouth Africa’s honeybush tea industry has been identified as an important growth sector in the country’s economy, according to a recent study.According to Stephen Hobson, an agricultural economist from Stellenbosch University who led the study, the industry has the potential to grow from an annual average of 150 tons of tea processed to 1 500 tons, thereby increasing its annual turnover from R10-million (US$$124 000) to R100-million ($12.4 million).The study was commissioned by the Coega Development Corporation, on behalf of the Eastern Cape Department of Economic Development and Environmental Affairs and the South African Honeybush Tea Association.“At present, the local and international demand for honeybush far outstrips the supply, so there is significant room for growth,” Hobson said in a statement.Competitive edgeThe honeybush industry, which is only 12 years old, is still in its infancy. In 2010 a total of 139 tons of honeybush tea was exported. The main buyers of honeybush are the Netherlands, Germany, the UK and US.However, this is only the beginning of what the industry can achieve. Honeybush has a unique selling point as it is indigenous to South Africa and grows only within the fynbos region.“We believe that honeybush should be marketed and positioned as a unique, niche product,” says Marlise Joubert, a researcher at the Agricultural Research Council (ARC) Infruitec Nietvoorbij Research Institute in Stellenbosch.According to Tea & Coffee Asia, the Asia region’s quarterly journal for the tea and coffee businesses, Honeybush tea is fast becoming a mainstream product and a strong competitor for Rooibos tea, South Africa’s other highly successful herbal tea export.If the expected growth targets for the industry are achieved, honeybush cultivation could make a major contribution to job creation and poverty alleviation in the Western and Eastern Cape.With increased production and formalised cultivation practices, the industry can remain sustainable and contribute to much-needed economic developed in poor communities.Growing the industryIndustry statistics show that cultivated honeybush is harvested from fewer than 10 farmers who have established successful honeybush plantations.“Currently 70% of honeybush tea is wild-harvested, and only 30% cultivated – a situation that is not sustainable,” Hobson said, adding that the industry must reverse this ratio, and work towards cultivating the bulk of the honeybush crop by involving small and emerging farmers.Cultivating honeybush on a larger scale will help to supply the growing demand for honeybush and it will relieve the pressure on wild honeybush populations.Harnessing indigenous knowledgeA honeybush farming project in the town of Genadendal in the Western Cape is a good example of the industry’s efforts to establish the town’s small farmers as independent producers of the unique product.There are at least 20 different species of honeybush, but Cyclopia maculata is the species which grows naturally in the area around Genadendal.The goal of the project, which was launched last year, is to work with the people of Genadendal to grow honeybush commercially and sustainably.Researchers from the ARC are working closely with the Genadendal Small Farmers’ Association, led by local community leader Reverend Chris Wessels.The Genadendal community has a long history of harvesting and processing wild-growing honeybush. However, honeybush production can be challenging as farming practices vary depending on the species and area.Farmers also need access to seeds or seedlings, knowledge about soil preparation, plantation care, harvesting, processing and marketing.Good farming principlesTo help local farmers cultivate honeybush successfully, the industry is compiling a growers’ guide to honeybush farming.With step-by-step information and basic illustrations, the handbook will equip small-scale farmers with the necessary skills and knowledge needed to grow honeybush.“As a young industry poised for expansion, we have a huge responsibility to ensure that we adopt biodiversity-friendly farming practices,” Joubert says.The industry is teaming up with local authorities in the Western and Eastern Cape to control and protect wild honeybush, thereby ensuring sustainable harvesting.Market developmentProfessor Lizette Joubert, a researcher at the ARC Infruitec Nietvoorbij Research Institute in Stellenbosch, says that the specific type of honeybush that grows in the Genadendal area holds significant economic potential for the local community.She says it is important to produce a unique herbal tea that can compete in local and foreign herbal tea markets based on its quality, taste, flavour and health benefits.“That is why researchers will investigate and document the sensory characteristics and health-promoting properties of honeybush tea grown near Genadendal,” she adds.The project also aims to add value to locally produced honeybush by looking at the production of extracts that can be used in many applications in the food and cosmetics industries.Johan Kritzinger, director of Honeybush Natural Products, a processing company, was quoted in Tea & Coffee Asia, saying “the future for honeybush would appear to be extremely bright”.A variety of research initiatives undertaken by the scientific community has shown that honeybush has numerous marketable aspects, such as its health properties. It’s caffeine-free and has a high content of antioxidants, which are believed to have anti-cancer properties.Research has also found that honeybush can be blended with other herbs to create beverages with specific health benefits.Modern consumers want to buy healthy beverages and this is increasing the demand for products such as honeybush.last_img read more
