Calling tomorrow. But I'm one of 4 or 5 friends who haven't gotten them yet. So much for loyalty.
I agree. Depending on how Hanafin acted in the negotiations, maybe I would do him + a 2nd and maybe a lower prospect.
Only problem with that is if we traded that much for him, and he then went somewhere else on July 1st. Now if we had permission to sound him out on an extension before we traded, it might be worth it.....
I could see Columbus sliding. I don't see Washington sliding that much. Unless they lose Holtby, and Ovi get creamed in the Olympics. Rangers are definitely questionable, as are the Isles. If we can avoid the usual O-for October ,we have a chance.
If he picks up where he left off from last season, then we can say being rushed into the League at 18, combined with the Prospect Camp shoulder injury delayed his development. otherwise he might be Boychuk 2.0.
