  1. I doubt this year, possibly next. They will have to shed salary when Draisaitl is making 7-8 million and McDavid 10+ million.
  2. I believe most of the names wont go anywhere, especially Gagner. Some team will be dumb enough to pay him 50 point money despite his prior performances. Hanzal will want too much term If we are going super cheap over the next 2 seasons, a veteran or 2 signings will be the route. Williams would be a great 2 year signing to bridge young guys. Vanek as well if we could get him for 2 years. Unfortunately with the lack of good UFAs, the wing UFAs will get more money/term than they should. GM Wilson has said he wants to re-sign Marleau and Thornton. My guess Thornton wouldn't be ready until late November.
  3. FAs I hope we talk to over the next week: In order of preference of want C: Sam Gagner Hanzal Big Joe RW: Williams Vrbata LW: Vanek Sharp Marleau
  4. Sucka a couple of thoughts. cheap route- PDG, McGinn, and Ryan re-sign. 4th line center brought in an older veteran winger for 2 years. Skinner-Rask-Aho Veteran-Staal-Lindholm TT-Ryan-Stempniak McGinn-Vet-PDG Ryan, I believe wants something more than a 4th line shot. He is 30 so I can't blame him. He'll more than likely be back though. With Capitals being in a world of hurt for cap space, cap tight deals are possible. I think another top 9 guy would will be added. It could be a serious acquisition or a veteran that will clear out in 2 years. Needless to say it's disappointing to hear the same things from GMRF.
  5. TBH I think based on Joe's asking price, his production, and contract term his name fell off the rumor mill.
  6. We'll be close 50 contracts after the draft unless we make trades. We have 37 now. We need 4 O players to make 12 but probably get 5 more. Sign 4 to 5 picks now and the others after they finish school. Gives us roughly 47, number will fluctuate if we fill vacant O slots with prospects.
  7. Relying on the European scout big time as most picks are outside their rankings. The Mattheos pick was a good value baed on ranking and where they were drafted. The big Dmen we drafted in the second round had good reviews from the announcers. Maturity is there already.
  8. Man the Strome brother fell all the way to the 4th round. Supposedly 1st round hands and skills but atrocious skating. Supposedly the same reason Vilardi fell as far.
  9. Maybe I missed your point. What did you mean is he signed yet?
  10. Got a 2nd Eetu with our 4th round pick G Eetu Markiniemi. Also Finnish
  11. Mattheos article looks like a solid pick in third. According to the article, seems like a good 3rd line center but could be more. He is one of those prospects who played in the shadow of another prospect, Nolan Patrick. He may have been rated higher if he had a prominent role for 2 years. Only got this high because Patrick was injured.
  12. Man Calgary gave up a bunch of picks for Harmonic. A 1st and 2 2nds. Shows you how much Hanafin, Faulk, etc are worth.
  13. Put 90 points in 72 WHL games this year.
  14. Well it doesn't look like we are trading a this year draft pick for anyone serious.
  15. Man another string bean Finnish player then another RHD.
  16. Maybe we can convince LAK to let go of Carter since they got a big center.
  17. What do you mean is Landeskog signed? He is signed for 4 more years at 5.57 million per. I think he has great chemistry with a few guys on the team already but Im not paying what Joe wants for him. He only put up 33 points. He has trended in the wrong direction for points over the last 4 going from 65 to 33, each season scoring less the last season. He would be a good addition for a D and O prospect, pick contingent on us making the playoffs. Duchene isn't worth one of our cornerstone defenders with only 2 years left on his deal. Nashville doesn't think so either. Im assuming NYI don't because they are willing to move Harmonic but a Duchene trade didn't materialize. If Im moving Hanafin its for Mackinnon. He has plenty of years left on his deal, 6, and even when they sucked he still scored 71 points. I would do Hanafin, McGinn or Roy, 42nd pick and a 1st next year. Then call LV about Methot. He knows what it is like to play along side an O minded D.
  18. Rumors are a bound about Duchene. The most frequent name is Nashville. They seem to be in deep talks.
  19. 1st round is over! so what forward from the Capitals could we get for: Nordstrom Dahlbeck or Murphy A pick id shoot for Johanssen. He meets our requirement of swedish or Finnish.
  20. Kostin still there. Man his shoulder is bad or he said something wrong. well there goes that. 0-3 hopeful picks.
  21. I knew Philadelphia would move Schenn to make space for Patrick. so they take back a really bad contract a 27th pick, and a top 10 protected potential 2nd 1st rounder? they basically are in the same roster situation and save 700k in cap.
  22. Well don't want to blend 2 topics Francis mentioned specifically teams that need cap reflief as prospect & picks trade partners. Minnesota- needs cap space still but only seems to be offering D players Capitals- plenty of young O RFA players. They may want a young and cheap roster player. They have 19 million in cap space with only 12 roster players. They need 5 O players, 2 defenders, and a backup goalie.
  23. Kostin has slid to at least 24
  24. Kostin might fall a while because of his shoulder. Could be a trade up candidate. Has great size already. A Nino type fall.
  25. Mckenzie in his final ratings said Suzuki was the steal of the draft. He rated Necas 11th. Not much of a man crush.
