  1. Will be cheaper than Panarin. I like this idea, hopefully he broke up with his GF
  2. Would Edmonton give up their 1st to move Lucic, to us, and we flip them a future back.. Could you imagine us drafting 10th and 11th?

      We would have a better chance of getting the 1st overall pick for Granlund.

      Only way that happens is if we take on Lucic without them taking cap back so they can dip into a top 6 winger in the FA market.

      And Having Milan and that toxic contract is not worth the 8 OA to us.  The cap is not going up, so the Oilers are stuck with Milan.  

  3. I'm very impressed with Byram, but Bo is a pretty complete player whos just starting to come into his own. I suggested taking on seabrook to switch picks, but I wouldn't give up our future captain.
  4. So question regarding NMC. Once a player waives it and moves, the new team doesn't have that same restriction, is that correct?
  5. So the idea that crossed my mind is this. Chicago trades Brent Seabrook, and their 1st overall 2019 for Vancouvers 1st overall. Understanding Brent has an NMC, but I'm not sure it would be that hard to convince a Richmond native to waive to finish his career playing at home. Hawks obviously do it to free up needed cap and they can still draft a very good player, and Vancouver does it to get their hands on Byram. We get 4 years of a declining defenceman who might retire early who would fit nicely in a 5-6 role on our team to mentor our soon to be very young blue line. This would also keep Vancouver out of the UFA market, and we can then sort out the remaining defenders we have and ship out one or two. Thoughts?
  6. Tell me I'm wrong, if the Blues make it to the SCF, Pettersen will be robbed of the Calder.

      You are wrong.

      Think about it....how would it be fair to nominees that didn't make it to the playoffs ??  Some nominees get extra games towards the voting and others don't?  lol

      The other thing you have to look at is the Defense in front of Binnington - that's a very solid core - might be the best in hockey. EP has Boeser and that's it - which makes what he did even more impressive.

      Wasn't aware that's when voting was cast, thanks all for that!  My next thought was is he loses, I can see him coming back next year on a tear out of sheer anger over losing it.  Seems his way to play well angry.

  7. Panarin of course, but ladies and gents.. our defense though! We can not go through another summer without a change back there. Honestly we need one B+ d man at the very least, and ship a couple out. I don't care if that is via trade or we try FA, but this CAN NOT be the same blue line for the 2019-20 season.
  8. Nope, not ragging, I'm impressed. Outside of UFAs, Jims track record re-signing players has been fairly good. Demko and Horvat are the most impressive. Curious to see how Brocks looks when its all said and done.
  9. Phenomenal signing, I admit I winced a bit when I saw a canuck signing tag in the title, but very very surprised here. This said, does anyone else feel the reason Edler isn't signed yet is Benning is playing hard ball?
  10. Haha Monahan with no votes.. A little Vancouver Rivalry Bias at play?
  11. How the mighty have fallen!  First Tampa, then Pittsburgh.. I think Tampa stays intact this summer, Pittsburgh however is over due for fundamental changes.

      Gudbranson has been good for Pittsburgh, surprisingly. Oldnews would be happy about that.

  12. If this is true, I'm happy for him. Classy guy, I thought the Canucks thrived under his watch. The only knock is he doesn't trust his young players as much. Philly will be a force next year.
