To VAN: John Tavares

 

To TBL: Aaron Ekblad, Philip Danault, Lucas Wallmark

Thanks to @theminister for processing and @Captain Azzy for the second deal between our teams.

 

We'd like to wish John Tavares the best of luck in Vancouver, unfortunately we felt it was time to move on, especially before his NMC kicks in this September.

 

We are extremely excited with the return, Aaron Ekblad is a former 1st overall pick just like Tavares, and although he had an injury riddled year, we feel he is due for a bounce back next year. Philip Danault had a breakout year last year, and we feel he can provide us with some much needed depth for next season. Lucas Wallmark is coming off of a fantastic rookie AHL season and even got into 8 games with the NHL Canes. We expect Lucas to push for a spot in training camp.

 

It is well known of the Lightning's salary cap troubles, but after the moves of Hedman and Tavares, we feel much better now and heading into the future. Between those two deals, we gained 5.45M in cap room, while trading two roster players and bringing in four quality ones. This additional cap space will help us pursue more free agents to help balance our roster. The Lightning now head into free agency with almost 16M in cap room to find 4 forwards and a backup goaltender.

A tip of our cap to the Coyotes organization for the smooth negotiations. We wish nothing but the best for Zach in the Desert and welcome Beauvillier and Soshnikov to our team.

TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING DRAFT REVIEW:

 

 

30th Overall - Anders Bjork (LW)

Anders just completed his junior season at the University of Notre Dame with a whopping 52 points in 39 games and ended off the year representing his country at the World Championships. Anders was one of our top targets heading into this draft, and had we had an earlier pick, we likely would've selected him higher as well. Having signed a professional contract with the Boston Bruins to leave school, we feel that Anders can come into training camp next season and push for a full time roster spot right away.

 

54th Overall - Linus Soderstrom (G)

The Isles prospect backstopped his HV71 team to a league championship in the SHL this year posting a 0.943 Sv% in the regular season and a 0.922 Sv% in the post season. For a goalie to do this at the age of 20, is quite an accomplishment. Soderstrom recently agreed to an ELC with the Islanders, however it seems likely he will be back in Sweden next season to further his development. With Carey Price in net, the Lightning won't be looking for a replacement any time soon, but we feel Linus has all the tools to become a starting goalie in the National Hockey League.

 

64th Overall - Anthony Cirelli (C)

Anthony has had a decorated junior career starting as a walk on to the Oshawa Generals, to scoring the Memorial Cup game winning goal and finishing off this season in the Memorial Cup Final with the Erie Otters. Cirelli was a key member of Canada's World Juniors team this past season, putting up 7 points in 7 games and being relied on as a key defensive centerman. Next season, Anthony is bound for the Syracuse Crunch, and we feel he will be in the NHL in no time at all.

 

69th Overall - Troy Terry (C/RW)

The hero for all Americans during this years World Juniors, the "five-hole specialist" was point per game for his native Red White and Blue. His season back at Denver wasn't too shabby either, 45 points in 35 games while playing on Denver's top line and winning a National Championship. Terry will be heading back to Denver for his Junior season next year, but we expect him to sign with the Anaheim Ducks very soon and make an impact in the NHL.

 

80th Overall - Jesse Gabrielle (LW)

Gabrielle fits the mould of how the Bruins play, a gritty winger with a scoring touch. This has been evident his last two seasons with the PG Cougars, putting up 40 and 35 goals along with 101 and 88 PIMS. Jesse will make the jump to the professional ranks next year and will likely join the Providence Bruins. We look forward to seeing how he does there and where he can go in the future.

 

83rd Overall - Jean-Christophe Beaudin (C/RW)

The Avalanche prospect has had two back-to-back tremendous years in the QMJHL with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, this year putting up 80 points in 65 regular season games along with 20 points in 13 playoff games. However, Beaudin is more well known for his defensive abilities and hockey IQ. Next season he'll make the jump to pro hockey with the San Antonio Rampage, and in a system like the Avs, you never know when he may get his first chance.

 

84th Overall - Patrick Harper (C)

The diminutive forward that was a 5th round pick to the Predators last season had an excellent freshman year at Boston University this year putting up 38 points in 37 games. Harper even got to represent his country at the World Juniors, and although in a limited role, he should be one of their key offensive forwards next year. With the game growing more and more towards speed and skill, we figured we'd take a chance on Patrick and let him develop and see what comes of it.

 

89th Overall - Yegor Rykov (D)

The big Russian defenceman had a coming out party at the World Juniors this year, going point per game and was named one of Russia's top three players in the tournament. Even though he is only 20 years old, he played a regular shift with one of the KHLs top teams in SKA St. Petersburg. Although he is signed for another 2 years in Russia, we are hoping that he decides to come to North America after this and further his skills.

 

101st Overall - Mikhail Vorobyov (C)

Vorobyov was Rykov's teammate at the World Juniors where he showcased himself as a top playmaking center putting up 10 points in 7 games, all assists. Vorobyov ended his KHL season with a respectable 11 points in 44 games, which was 3rd best for all players under the age of 20. Since then, Vorobyov has signed with the Flyers and will play in North America next season. We are looking forward to seeing how his development proceeds.

 

DRAFT REVIEW:

With a very bare farm system, we are very excited to welcome these 9 prospects into the fold. In case anyone hasn't noticed, we did not draft a single 2017 draft eligible prospect with any of our picks. Due to the lack of prospect depth, we needed bodies that would be playing in the AHL right away and that were further along in their development than some of the other prospects. We have high hopes for all 9 of these prospects and hope to see them in the Lightning roster one day! Thanks to all GMs and the commish team for running todays draft smoothly!

A short and sweet draft night for the Sabres with just a 1st and a 2nd round pick.

 

We are absolutely thrilled to be walking away with Nick Suzuki and Pierre-Olivier Joseph. They're going to add some more much needed depth to our prospect pool! I see great things in both of their futures.

The Canucks are delighted to add some of the NCAA's brightest talents in Ryan Poehling, David Farrance and Cayden Primeau.

 

In addition, we are thrilled to add Matthew Strome at #49 and Maxime Comtois at #50, as we feel both will have long NHL careers.

 

Cale Fleury rounded out our draft, and we look forward to seeing him develop further over the coming years.

 

An exciting pool of talent joins a franchise that also welcomes John Tavares and Calvin de Haan to the team. A 1-2 punch of Jonathan Toews and John Tavares will be impossible for teams to match up against, and we cannot wait to see John and Calvin lead this team for years to come.

 

A great day for our franchise!

Just catching up on the draft thread, Question about the Chabot situation:

 

Dont we usually announce which players are re entering the draft? 

 

Allso, Really $&!#ty situation for ON as well.. i dont know if there was a post by the league outside of the OP on the signing deadline happening but it may be a good idea to make a post to give all GM's an extra that they need to sign their guys warning in case theyve got other stuff going on and lose track of the schedule.Losing maybe the best D prospect around for nothing isnt in the best interest of the league and obviously his team.
