I'm not sure about that. Do we have the cap space? I think we're barely squeezing by cap wise.
We're talking about next season right?

It depends what the plans are.

What if Tanev + Stech are out and Tree and Raff are in?

What if Toffoli doesn't want to sign here?

What if the rumour... the one I've chosen to believe... about Loui is true (retiring).

What if Jimmy has some deals on the table to open some cap space?

(Loui/Sutter/Baer + sweetener type deals)

Maybe a team wants Benn/Roussel for a pick?

These are things only Jimmy knows, maybe we're totally fine cap-wise.

If we could sign Tree for something like $2.5M X 3 I'd be over the moon.

But then I believe in the big guy more than most.

EDIT: What if there are CBOs next season?
Yeah I was thinking he meant signing him now and activating him for the playoff series vs Minnesota. I agree we should be able to get him in the lineup next year if he really is interested in coming back.

Hopefully this time he can find living quarters where he and his wife won't be overwhelmed by the putrid stench of cannabis fumes.

Maybe he took up the pipe and that's why he wants to come back. :mex:

He wouldn't be eligible to play in this years' potential play-ins/playoffs, if that what you mean.
So he has to wait until January to play again. That's fucked.

Meh. With the current format, and the AHL cancelling the season sooner, it's possible the AHL could start sooner than the NHL..

November? Perhaps?

Training with team in October.. perhaps??

Couple of other notes from Return-to-Play protocol: Two exhibition games per team; 28 skaters and as many goalies as you wish to carry.

Seems more like a mini training camp. I think this may be one of the things that may change. Add it all up and that's about 80 -90 unnecessary
players. Not exactly streamlining the plan??

Ferland, Boeser et al.
That means Eriksson should be the 13th forward, Motte 14th, MacEwen 15th, Baertschi 16th.

Wonder which cities will be the hub's.
Eriksson should be about the 18th forward if everyone is healthy.
:lol: :lol: :lol:
Ohh but you know Greener...loves himself some Loui for being a reliable defender and killing off teams last couple minutes of the 3rd.
If leivo is back I think the Louie days are done, he was showcased and no interested takers.
Yeah I showcased my 1975 AMC Hornet recently. It was riddled with rust, exhaust pipe dragging on the ground, catalytic converter had a gaping hole, the tires were bald, it smelled like a jiffy John inside, the transmission clunked like hell and the brakes both front and back were shot. I only wanted 10 K for it.
Would you take 8k?

Wild fans are already trying to outdo Canuck fans.

There is nothing that the Green Men can do that is in poor taste. They could tea bag Gritty in front of his kids, and it would still not be in poor taste.
The Cup is soooooo ours!!!!!!!
