    Draft Pick
  1. That’d be great, but I highly doubt you’d find a team willing to take on his contract without sending back cap.
  2. He’s 30 and owed $12M over the next 3 years, not the type of asset a team in the lottery would look for to entice them trade down. If he is to be dealt, it would likely cost an asset to get a team to take on his cap hit for 3 years or he would likely be dealt for another team’s bad contract in a change of scenery type trade. In this environment, he’s a negative asset. Probably best to just hold onto him.
  3. Likely so, but I wouldn’t put it past any GM in this environment as an ask. More so, my point was that it’s ludicrous to suggest Gardiner has positive value enough to move up from 13OA.
  4. You think by packaging Gardiner with 13OA they they’d actually be able to move up? I’d imagine it’d be exactly the opposite. Teams would want 13OA to take on Gardiner.
  5. Rug, roh, sure sounds like Dundon will push them to not taking Askarov: Good. Give me Seth Jarvis.
  6. Because he actually exercised a stipulation of the contract his GM gave him? please
  7. So you value one random person’s opinion on the internet versus the random opinions of two other people on the the internet, good to know.
  8. is this supposed to actually persuade anyone? This guy in a hack, rando YouTuber.
  9. Bokk no longer plays in the SHL. He will play in the German DEL for Krefeld this coming season.
  10. A lease signed for the next 9 years at PNC might have something to say about that.
  11. It makes no difference what either of them do next season until they’re signed to contracts for this coming season.
  12. Yep, if they feel Askarov is the BPA, then that’s the pick. I don’t see it happening though, I see them going with a forward, particularly Holloway or Jarvis.
  13. All North Americans, adjusted to playing here already. You’re kidding yoursellf if you think Askarov will be ready that quickly
  14. He’s a Russian. He’s a goalie. He hasn’t played in North America yet. Vasilevskiy is his closest comparable, drafted 19OA in 2012. He didn’t get a starter’s workload until the 16-17 season, 4-5 years after he was drafted. Expecting a 19-20 year old Russian to become a starting goaltender in the NHL is setting him up to fail. If he’s the pick then, I can live with it. But it’s a pick for 4-5 yrs down the road, potentially outside of CAR’s immediate window as they’ll have to make decisions on Aho, Teravainen and Pesce by then as well, they won’t be able to keep all of them I’d wager. My argument is that they’re better off getting a Lehner/Markstrom/whoever of the many, many #1Gs available this offseason as opposed to gambling on Askarov. I don’t think it’s the best use of assets to pick a goalie that high.
