Here's this weeks, now coming to you 4 hours earlier as I'll be based out of Halifax for a year or so.

Hope you like it...

He'd better be drunk to pass on the best deal. If he gets a great offer, or a biding war, started for Schnieder than he'd better pull the trigger.

Great Job on the drawing though, the suspense is killing me

Haha Nice, I hope he trades today though. It would be nice to have a high end draft pick... Haven't had one of those in a long while! :emot-parrot:

Nice job as usual!

Although I don't really expect one of them to be traded yet, I think it will happen sometime this summer.

He can still trade on draft day and get a high end pick?

as long as he trades before the high end picks are made, yes. he can trade up until the pick he is trading for is made.

Great job, as always. However, I'm almost certain that Gillis is trading Lu - I don't really think there is any question about it.

When Lu went public, and it sounded like a trade demand, Gillis looked like he was handcuffed. But by giving the impression that he would be open to the possibility of trading either, and saying he's willing to go into next season with both goalies, he has put himself back in the driver's seat.

Of course, Schneider is tradeable in theory, just like any other young stud in the league. But I imagine the price is astronomical - far beyond what any team will be willing to pay.

So...what I'm saying is...the beer in the comic is non-alcoholic?

Can't trade an unsigned Schneider because he'd be subject to an offer sheet.

You never really know. Maybe the Leafs are waiting to see what is available at 5 before making a deal. Maybe someone else is? Probably far too hopeful, I'd be happy if Schenn was coming back.
After a few days here, I am surprised half of you got the anti-bot question correct to register for this site.

I assume the team trading for him would have a contract prepared.

It gives Schneider some control over where he gets traded to. He might say "If you trade me to Columbus I'm not signing anything more than a 2 year deal (or whatever it is until he's UFA)."

and that's not counting our prospect goalies, who seem pretty solid too. :)

Great comic. :) can't wait to see what happens, would be happy to keep both if we can swing it.

If nothing happens during the draft, this waiting is gonna kill me until the free agency begins. I think we might have more oofers for Schneids than Lui though, but we'll see....
