  1. Book is out on Darling...glove and 5 Hole. Brutal game. Yes there were defensive lapses but at least 2 of the first 4 and probably 3 needed to be and should have been stopped. When bad ones get given up, everything in front suffers.
  2. I’d like to see a move for a veteran D. Goaltending isn’t the only reason we’re giving up goals, there have been a lot of missed assignments in front. A solid veteran like Ron Hainsey would be helpful to steady things on the back end.
  3. We should be careful about just assuming that Kruger goes right to the 4th line. There is more to his game than what was seen in Chicago. Chip alluded to it in his article and there's also this: http://www.hockeysfuture.com/prospects/marcus_kruger/
  4. I keep mulling things over and the 2 names I keep coming back to are Grandlund and Carter...if we could work something out with LA retaining some salary, especially because of the term, Carter makes a lot of sense.
  5. Chip Alexander @ice_chip·1h Canes GM Ron Francis says team has reached out to Justin Williams.
  6. Cammalerri and Smith-Pelly on buyout waivers as is Jimmy Hayes from Boston and Lance Bouma from Calgary. Have a hard time seeing exactly where Smith-Pelly might fit, but I like his game.
  7. Here are some notes on Kanzig...sounds like a guy we could use if he can work his way up... Talent Analysis Kanzig is a big body that can make a big presence on the ice. He has the ability to become a shutdown force for the Flames on the back end, while being an enforcer at the same time. Despite his huge size, Kanzig is a surprisingly good skater though it is an area where improvement can increase his effectiveness on the ice. He has worked to increase his technical and tactical proficiency during his junior career. Future Kanzig is eligible to return to the WHL's Calgary Hitmen for an overage season but is expected to begin his pro career with Flames' AHL affiliate Stockton in 2015-16 after attending training camp. Long-term, his calling card at the NHL level will be his physical game and ability to shutdown opposition attackers; providing a complimentary element to some of the talented young forwards in Calgary.

  8. Hartnell bought out...we could do worse, good in front of the net, physical player.
  9. This is interesting...we'd have to re-sign DiGuissepi or McGinn before expansion if we wanted to expose them. Players certainly hold the Aces there as if they don't want to be exposed, they just sit on the offer. http://www.newsobserver.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/luke-decock/article152375787.html
  10. I guess you could expose McGinn and/or Nordstrom...is DiGuissepi exposable?
  11. I have a hard time seeing Stepniak on the team next year...very high odds he's a Las Vegas Knight.
  12. I don't think the Pens can expose MAF as he has a no trade clause. They have to trade him before the expansion if they want to protect Murray. "All players who have currently effective and continuing "No Movement" clauses at the time of the Expansion Draft (and who to decline to waive such clauses) must be protected (and will be counted toward their club's applicable protection limits)."
  13. The expansion draft is going to be in interesting wrinkle, I think...here are the rules for goalies. "iii) One goaltender who is under contract in 2017-18 or will be a restricted free agent at the expiration of his current contract immediately prior to 2017-18. If the club elects to make a restricted free agent goaltender available in order to meet this requirement, that goaltender must have received his qualifying offer prior to the submission of the club's protected list." You have teams like the Rangers who will have to expose Raanta, Pittsburgh who will have to expose Murray because Fleury has a No Movement clause, even guys like Grubauer or Mrazek could be available for lower value because teams would rather get something versus losing the player to the expansion. Free agency has some decent goalies available like Darling, Elliot, and of course Bishop. I'd love to see Darling find his way here.
  14. Here's a risk/reward idea...make a run at Jeff Carter. 5 years left at about 5.2 mil/year. You probably get 2 or 3 quality years and then it might get tough for the last bit. That time would allow for further development of Wallmark, Roy, etc. and you get a legit scorer at the pivot. It would take picks and maybe a guy like DiGuisseppi, McGinn, etc. (they are aging on the wings).
  15. The free agent list is ultra thin this year...Bonnio is the only player under 30 who's even worth a look. If we are going to upgrade with a scorer it is going to come via trade using our depth at D and picks.
