  1. I would personally love to see virtanen, dahlin goldobin, joulevi, holm, subban, demko, Boesr and all other prospects in the AHL and go to the championship playing together, while the vets play to compete in the NHL. This will do two things: 1) allow the prospects to play and develop chemistry as well as win together. This will mean when they jump to NHL they'll know each other's game 2) allow our big club to be competitive every night with NHL talent and at deadline if we are a bubble team, then we can do a massive sell off and pick top 5 again. I expect our forward lineup to be: Sedin-sedin-granlund/rodin Baer-horvat-gagner Gaunce-sutter-eriksson Boucher-burmistrov-granlund/Rodin Dorset/Megan/chaput on the outside with chaput, and Megna likely playing in AHL with all our prospects. I'm personally excited for the future with these moves.
  2. He's not. He's available based on the list above
  3. Can lv take more than one player from any one team? If so is there a penalty associated to it? Sorry just getting caught up with the expansion draft rules
  4. Isn't it true that many of the players they select could have little NHL experience and may be waiver exempt which would mean they can be sent down without risk? If that's true you'd think that's part of their strategy to not lose any players once drafted. In that case your proposal to claim may not come to fruition.
  5. You do realize Franson and Bo have a very big age difference. Bo also has a much higher ceiling than Franson. at this point Franson is who he is.. he won't be getting any better so it would be foolish to think if he tries, he'll be faster. I rather give the roster spot to one of our prospects to see what they got if we can't get someone from available UFAs. If franson comes dirt cheap (1 - 2 Million per year) then great. else i'm not interested personally.
  6. adding size is one thing.. i would like us to add mobility to our D-core more though. With offense drying up on the Forwards end, i'd like our D to be able to score some timely goals in PP/help move pucks out to our Fwds so they can maybe score. Franson isn't really all that great. Maybe as a 6/7th D.
  7. If this can be a three way deal where we trade tanev and get back a pick from one team, and a prospect fro. Another then I'd do it. Chicago gets tanev Other team gets Seabrook We get pick from chi/other team + we get prospect from chi/other team
  8. Potential without will won't get him far. I rather move on and give other kids a chance to develop instead while he grooms his skills in khl. Maybe when we're winning again and need grit, he'll also have desire to return to NHL. If not, just expose him to LV and let them deal with the diva.
  9. I don't think that his height was the only reason .. his salary likely had to do with it as well.. Miller is going to be 38 when he resigns and personally if we're spending 4 - 5 Million on a goalie, even if its temporary, i rather get someone younger who can push Markstrom, not someone who takes majority of the starts.. If not Halak, then Hiller, or Ramo, or anyone else can be signed at fraction of the price and still provide solid support and the cap space can be used to buy and bury contracts in order to get back decent return at deadline. I've said it many times on these boards.. i like how leafs played smart and signed a bunch of vets to fill holes in their lineup in FA period only to flip them for picks / prospects at deadline each year. That's the best/quickest way to fill your picks and prospect pool. It seems that's what we're also trying to do.
  10. re-post -.. dont' know how to delete..
  11. i wouldn't commit more than 3-3.5 / season to him. There are more goalies available than there is demand. at 4+ i'd rather take Halak.
  12. I say we pick him up and put him in minors if we still get priority. He's our asset even if he's not a regular NHL'er yet. He was part of our system until he was stolen. He has some promise to become a bottom pairing d-man and he would be nice to have in utica to play with Subban and push for playoffs.
  13. I like Stetcher... He reminds me of bryan rafalski - they're both small and Rafalski was a great offensive D. Subban is same size but doesn't play big which is his drawback. he may hold value to a team that's looking for a power play QB. I sooner trade Larsen than Subban. Subban still can grow into a great PP q-back where as Larsen is what he is.. bottom 7 D.
  14. don't over estimate our team and don't under estimate theirs. Leafs and Oilers are miles ahead of flames who are several years ahead of canucks. Oil and Leafs finally have prospects that make for exciting hockey and a chance to win every night. Flames need some good Dmen to make them decent. Canucks have holes all over the F position and in D position which just can't be plugged through FA or trades. if they can be plugged its short term fix and requires us to give up our future - Evander Kane for example would require a pick and /or prospect.. .. and he can't really score for Sabres.. i'm not sure he can do better here against more physical competition every night in W Conference.
  15. Yea.. I can think of two.. Flames did this just about 2-3 years ago and completely wiped all veteran contracts away except for a few Leafs recently also did that about a year ago. It isn't that unheard of. if you want to start over, you trade whatever you can and get as much back for them and plug holes with whatever talent you've got.
