Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

This one is a head scratcher. Neal has 4 years left at $5.75M. Looch has 4 years left at $6M. Neal stands a better chance of keeping up with Edmonton's top-6 forwards in terms of speed, but that's about it. I feel like Calgary is making out like gangbusters here. They get stronger, scarier (in the ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

LUCIC for NEAL trade :shock: Kypper: Milan Lucic days as a @EdmontonOilers are over. With Lucic waving his no move clause it opens up the trade to @NHLFlames. At this point sounding like a 1 for 1 trade for James Neal. @NHL @GenePrincipe Got a tip trying to 100% verify but I'm being told @NHLFlames...

Re: Offseason grades so far

Plus with Miller he can help with faceoffs as well when needed. - & If you want a key faceoff win you want Beagle taking it. Definitely don't want Petey or Gaudette taking any key faceoffs, they need to be working with Manny Malhotra all season. 2018/19 faceoff stats: Beagle FO% 56.2%, taken 758, pe...

Re: Offseason grades so far

on a side note my buddy is dating tyson barrie's sister. The deal was in place days before the draft. Barrie met with green and even had an 8 year x 8.25 m extension in place. On canada day, they were all in victoria when he got word of his trade to toronto. He told everyone what happened and went ...

Re: Offseason grades so far

I believe the hold up on Hutton is Jake Gardiner. He might be plan B/C for teams bidding on JG. Really? I think if a team was way short on defense men, they might give Ben a call and offer him 1.5, maybe 2. Gardiner is probably holding out for 6.5 to 7 for 5/6yrs. He may not get it because of his a...

Re: Offseason grades & Load Management

Edler, Tanev and now Roussel would be best served with load management - not playing in back to back games & other special circumstances those 3 games in 4 nights type of scenarios - or whatever ridiculous scheduling. I think it depends greatly on what injury you're trying to prevent/deal with. Leo...

Re: Offseason grades & Load Management

I'm just spit-balling here, but I'm of the opinion that Tanev should still return a 2nd rounder and a prospect at this point. The idea was to add depth, trading Tanev now doesn't make sense, particularly as Myers isn't the same type of player and Benn can't handle those kind of minutes. As for next...

Re: Seattle Expansion/Canucks players

Elliotte reporting Seattle will likely hire Ron Francis to be their GM. The organization itself is declining to comment, but there is word tonight that Seattle’s NHL expansion team is closing in on naming Ron Francis as its first GM. We’ll see how events unfold the next few days; things have been pe...

Re: Let's get creative with Erikkson...

non-stop ideals! Eriksson for Canes James Reimer. NY sports columnist: Luke DeCock - James Reimer’s time with the Hurricanes could be short. Agreed to take on his contract to get out from under Darling buyout. Other potential moves in works. Reimer $3.4M AAV x2 - $3.1M cap hit if in minors - saves $...

Re: Let's get creative with Erikkson...

4th period, Sept 25, 2018: Ottawa tried to trade Zack Smith last season and this summer. He’s now on waivers with 3-years left on his deal. Bit of a surprise, frankly. $3.25M x 2 left on deal, no bonuses, 10 team no trade to clause. Eriksson for Smith straight up. SOLD!! dang, Hawks traded Anisimov...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

I don’t know who he scouted, who he drafted or is exact influence in Boston. I do know Lucic was upset he left Boston and said Benning’s departure made it possible for him and other guys to contemplate leaving someday. Lucic said Benning was more influential and responsible for helping to assemble ...
