  1. [Signing] Kings re-sign Drew Doughty

    So min. 10.1 per for 8 years. It'll be interesting to see the final number
  2. Artyom Manukyan | RW

    Usually I don't have an issue with size (and I know I'm beating a dead horse) but 5'7 is small. And at 20 years old, he's not likely to grow. At least if he was 18 there's a shot of him growing an inch or two, but now, not so much. I think there would have been better plays to target for a boom or bust pick with this pick. With that said, I'm rooting for him all the way. Hope he can prove the majority of us wrong about his size. He's certainly skilled enough that he could be utilized as a specialty forward and still be effective in the new NHL
  3. 2019 NHL Entry Draft in Vancouver, BC

    Glad we got to grab a couple of high profile D this year. 2019 looks to be stacked with centres. Should be able to grab a good one in the top 10. Obviously Hughes would be fantastic.
  4. Yeah.. After I thought about it for a while I realised it was bad. Wouldn't stop be from asking for it
  5. Steel is likely untouchable, but Id start by asking for Perry + Steel for Eriksson - no retention. Other than Boeser, we don't really have any big contacts coming up in the next 3 years. And if we do its because someone surprised.
  6. [Rumour] Canucks interested in Hanifin

    It was just a little while ago that it was rumored that were going to trade the 5th overall for PK, so offering the 7th shouldn't be out of the question. I hope we leverage our cap space to make it happen.
  7. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    This is such a odd draft for me. There's really no wrong answer with anyone at our position. Even some of the guys who would be projected as a "reach" at 7 would be great pick ups. I have preferences for sure, but there's no one that I can say that I would be upset with picking. Hughes is my top choice, but I don't think he gets past Detroit. I also think that this may be one of the first drafts in years where we see some movement in the top 10. I think Montreal takes a long look at moving back,and if one or two teams have a "guy" they really want, they may try to jump up to grab them. I keep trying to project who will be available at our pick and I keep having to redo it because I'll be "there's no chance x is available at 7" then I do it again and again and again haha
  8. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    In the last 31 Thoughts podcast (pre lottery), Elliot Friedman mentioned that Carolina wants to be tougher to play against. Now I'm not saying that Zadina or Svech wouldn't be difficult to play against, but out of the top 3 forwards, Tkachuk definitely comes across as the most aggravating to play. I'd still go Zadina or Svech at #2, but I wouldn't be surprised if they went with Brady.
  9. Michael DiPietro | G

    He's really well spoken, definitely worth a listen. Hard not to like the guy and his drive.

  12. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Just a thought, right now we're sitting at 6th. Let's say post lottery we either stay or drop to 7. Would you trade that pick for an established defenceman like Dougie Hamilton? Calgary is rumored to be trying to get back into the first round and they have a plethora of good defensemen. If not for Dougie, Is there a defenseman you would trade for - I'm thinking straight up, one for one. There was also that report of us being in on Subban a while back.

    Man, Svech would be a great consolation prize to missing out on Dahlin.
  14. [discussion] Free Agency 2018: to D or not to D?

    Its a stretch, but I do have some reasoning to the madness. Carlson is a UFA, so his value is minimal. The contract would be agreed to by us and him and Washington signs the deal so JC can get the 8th year. Wsh does this for a discount on Tanev (some have speculated his value at a 1st and a prospect). So let's say its JC and a 1st for Tanev. If the season ended today, Wsh pick would be 24th overall in a deep draft. I did say package for Trouba - I was assuming we'd have to add, but I didn't specify that. I don't think Wpg can afford to sign Trouba to a big deal as Laine is going to need an extension in 2019 (plus there was his holdout 2 years ago). Let's say we add next year's 2nd to the deal. It's then Hutton or Del Zotto (inexpensive replacement for Trouba that won't tie up $ for Laine) a 1st in a deep draft and a 2nd - which could still be an early 2nd. Do either of these deals get done? Probably not, but it's fun to dream.
