  1. I bet lack or Berube goes to PHX.
  2. Connor Brickley???? gave a 5th rounder as well
  3. With Colorado, Van, and Arizona's picks we now "know" all picks but ours and the jets
  4. The official announced picks: COL Calvin Pickard G ARI Teemu Pulkkinen F VAN Luca Sbisa D NJD John Merrill D BUF William Carrier F DET Tomas Nosek F DAL Cody Eakin F FLA Marchessault F + Smith F - a 4th rounder (going to FLA) LAK McNabb D CAR Connor Brinkley F and 5th rounder WIN Chris Thorburn a 1st rounder and a 5th rounder PHI P-E Bellemore F TB Jason Garrison D + Gusev F NYI J.F Berybe G + Mikhail Grabovski F + Jake Bischoff D + 2017 1st round pick + 2019 2nd round pick NAS James Neal F CAL Deryk Engelland D
  5. I believe the only team that threatens a 3rd goalie being selected is Winnipeg. All other teams' selections have been confirmed with a high certainty (see list above)
  6. Definitely will be some defenders being traded. Adding Schmidt to list selected. He would be a solid pickup on the D. More teams will need him more than us and pay more also looking more and more like lack may be chosen. Up to 25 teams and only 2 goalies so far.
  7. So far off the list I would hope to trade for: LW Neal or RW Marchessault or LW Perron or D Miller miller is a solid young RHD that has good experience. Im counting 10 NHL Dmen on the list, some need to move. perron scored 18 last year and has a 1 year deal left at less than 4 million
  8. Based on the assumed list so far, yes they will suck. Now the last 11 players could make them decent, we'll see.
  9. Got this from the LV blogger on Hockeybuzz: We have never seen anything First player is likely to be the official expansion selection, anything afterwards is sweetener to induce McPhee from other assets. Please remember that nothing is confirmed until tonight:MIN Erik Haula + Alex Tuch (Michael Russo)PIT Marc-Andre Fleury + draft pick (McKenzie)ANA Clayton Stoner + Shea Theodore (McKenzie)CHI Marcus Kruger + Trevor van Riemsdyk (Frank Seravelli)CBJ William Karlsson + David Clarkson + 2017 1st round pick + prospect(Aaron Portzline)FLA Jonathan Marchessault (McKenzie)NYI J.F. Berube + Mikhail Grabovski + 2017 1st round pick (McKenzie, Arthur Staple)TOR Brendan Leipsic (Dreger)DAL Cody Eakin (Dreger)OTT Marc Methot (LeBrun)NSH James Neal (McKenzie)MTL Alexander Emelin (Seravelli)STL David Perron (Raphaël Doucet)TBL Jason Garrison + Nikita Gusev? (McKenzie, Joe Smith)LAK Brayden McNabb (John Hoven)DET Tomas Nosek (Craig Custance)PHI Pierre-Edouard Bellemare (Custance)NYR Oscar Lindberg (Dreger)CGY Deryk Engelland (John Shannon) EDM Griffin Reinhart D (Shannon) SJS David Schlemko D (LeBrun) BOS Colin Miller D (Elliotte Friedman‏) BUF William Carrier F (Seravelli) WSH Nate Schmidt D (Isabelle Khurshudyan) NJD Jon Merrill D (Seravelli) 25 of the 30. Really surprised at the list so far. Missing a couple of goalies and Dmen that I thought would be there. Rumored that Nashville tried to keep Neal. Believed to be traded soon. Either GMRF keeps this ridiculously tight or nobody bothers to cover us.
  10. A lot of names out there already. As usual we haven't been mentioned in anything.
  11. Man it would be nice to get Marchessault's goals, if he can repeat that production. We would need a seriously physical center in addition though. To imagine skins, aho, and march on the same team, its smurfalicious. Jeff Carter or Big Joe would definitely work. March seems to fit our budget smart approach, until we have to re-sign him that is.
  12. Well if that is it, I'll use a Chapelle quote. I wish I had two more hands to give it 4 thumbs down. Unless there are shadowed flags in that red, its as elementary as the last jerseys. Good grief!
  13. The craziest deal I would consider is: getting Carter from LA. He is 60+ point per season guy. Older but is owed 18.5 million over the next 5 years. Which is pretty good for as much as he does. They need offensive prospects. McGinn, Roy, and next year's 1st?
  14. Some ideas for UFA signings, although unlikely: RW Oshie. Top UFA . Will cost too much for too long for us. Recycle vets, Vrbata, Justin Williams, and Eaves. Williams and Vrbata are both 35 and older. They still put up 24 and 20 goals, respectively. They may go for 1 year deals, maybe 2. Eaves scored 32 goals but more than likely wants more term than GMRF wants to offer a 33 year old. C Someone mentioned Hanzal. How much and how long is the 30 year old going to want? 4 million AAV is my guess for 3-4 years. He scored 20 goals on a bad Zona team. It wouldn't be a terrible sign if Staal was able to be traded when Aho is C ready. Sam Gagner. Was last season a fluke or has finally realized his talent. 50 points he put up. He is only 27, usually hovers in the low 40s for points and had a couple of off years. Its hard to gauge him. Could want a serious term and length. 5 million AAV over 5 years, but not sure anyone would do it. Averaging 70 games, 40 points, 14 goals and a -9 over his 10 year career.
  15. We'll scratch the Hossa trade idea. I wasn't aware of cap recapture program. If he does retire, the Blackhawks will be penalized for front loading his contract, the difference in cap vs actual savings averaged over the remaining years he was signed. Also, the Hawks fans gave it a resounding no. Insulted even. At this point, make the trade and pay Hossa under the table to retire. Either way, learned something today.
  16. We should hear about a team in Seattle, Im guessing 2 seasons from now. The current GMs will happen to take at least 2 years to come down after this offseason. Bettman is too stupid to do what was best for the league, move Zona to LV. Now he will further divide the pot by adding another team. It doesn't make any sense. Of course im happy in the back because if Zona would have moved, I know we would be next to move.
  17. If we were Zona or LV, I doubt he would wave his nmc. The fact that we have a good chance to make the playoffs with him and have a bunch of former teammates to tell him about us (like Darling) increases our chances. No guarantee of course.
  18. To piggy back off your thought. how about Marian Hossa? 1. We love trading with Chicago 2. He is owed a total of 4 million over the last 4 years, yes 1 million per year 3. He still scored 28 goals last season 4. If he retires, so what? Are we ever going to get within 5 million of the cap ceiling? No 5. We can get a good young player, Ryan Hartman. Scored 19 goals last season. Could play on Staal's left side. 6. A year or maybe 2 of Hossa would be a great bridge for Gauthier 7. Chicago always needs cap space 8. We love to trade with Chicago to Car RW Hossa LW Hartman (RFA next year) To Chicago Nordstrom (if not chosen) or Nestrasil's rights Pittsburgh's 2nd That could be at worst 20 goals addition if Hossa retires immediately or best case 45 goals addition. A pretty good deal IMO. And would leave us enough assets / payroll to get a top center we want. Hartman is an addition that is on par with our youth movement.
  19. Its the same reason I don't want to do a Brown or Gaborik from LA. Yea we might get a lottery 1st rounder out of it but it will be detrimental in 3 years.
  20. At 30 and owed 37.25 million over 5 years, I pass. He can get to the 60-70 point range but only twice. In his 9 full seasons he averages 51 points per season. I don't know that he maintains that until he is 35. He has averaged 24 goals a season but most of his point numbers are from his time in Anaheim. I would do it if he had 2-3 years left but not at 5. over the next 3 years our salary is going to go way up with 3 of 4 D horsemen, Aho, Lindholm, TT, and Skinner all needing re-signings. Don't know that we can afford an under producing 7.5 million Ryan the last 2 years of his contract.
  21. Its outside the scope of the thread but: This was more in reference to players being ok with the status quo and little accountability among players because of years of making a team out of spare parts and recycling players. Some of the players saw the organization really didn't care about winning and gave efforts to match. It may have started before but that is when I noticed it. This also could be a super long discussion but I will cut it off here. it seemed to turn around some when the team saw it could win with who we had on the ice. It should get a boost with a hard playing Darling. The team needs a big acquisition to boost morale as much as the fans do.
  22. Well another damper on our ability to get talent cheap, they increased the cap to 75 million. man the positive outlook on our ability to improve the team has really been kicked down a few notches. We have a bunch more money to spend but it the talent wont come as cheap as I had hoped.
  23. It really depends on how they handle the expansion draft. 1. If they take everyone's picks to take no names, yes they do end at the bottom. 2. Do they go aggressive and take the best talent, they could finish 18-29 depending on how everyone gels. 3. Do they take a bunch of young talent and tradeable assets in the draft? Trade a decent amount of the talent for almost league ready talent. They could finish 25-31 depending on who they keep and how their talent does.
  24. To be honest I think it was an organizational mindset that brought them all down. Much like one here from 13-16 that really brought our production down. Players didn't feel either supported, appreciated, like the organization wanted to win, etc. I would say if its one player then they are having issues but when its a a majority of players, its an organization issue. If we were to add big name players, it would boost the morale of our players. Any addition would also benefit from an upbeat locker room atmosphere.
  25. Yes very true. Thanks to our favorite GM.
