  1. Id look within. MacEwen could be a good fit for that role. Big hard hitting when he wants to be. Hoglander-Pettersson-Podkolzin Miller-Horvat-Boeser Pearson-Dickinson-Garland Motte-MacEwen-Gadjovich/Virtanen Highmore OEL-Rafferty (see what the kids got) Hughes-Myers Juolevi-Ceci
  2. Draft a goalie later in the draft, limited scouting and might get a steal. But you run with Demko and sign UFA's as backups for the next 5 years regardless. Plenty more drafts. With all that said I wouldn't trade Dipietro. Our greatest area of strength is LD. Juolevi or Rathbone are our most valuable pieces. Miller + Rathbone + 3rd to the Rangers for 15OA + Kravtsov
  3. You said it, Hughes should fetch a number 1 C. Not a leftover piece
  4. Damn Im excited! Hopefully Green doesn't start him on the 4th line lol
  5. Ya 3 young rising LD stars paired with good RD defenders is a terrible thing. They may struggle as they are young and inexperienced pairings but theres ton of potential there. With that said if you could trade Schmidt and upgrade that side it would be huge.
  6. I wonder if we see Juolevi draw back into game action now that he doesn't have a chance of becoming Seattle expansion eligible.

      rafferty was under contract during his college year in 2018/2019.


      “Professional Games” includes the following: any NHL Games played, all minor league regular season and playoff games and any other professional games played, including but not limited to, games played in any European league or any other league outside North America, by a Player pursuant to his SPC


      so minor league games counted too! according to the cba


      i do not understand why teves would be considered eligible, because his contract was signed after the college year finished.


      still there may be a source that you are referring to that goes against the CBA?

      From your article:  “Pursuant to his SPC” - standard player contract.  


      Rafferty did not have an NHL contract in college.  College is not a pro league either but an amateur league.


      Tryamkin is still Canuck property as RFA but is exempt because his years in the KHL don’t count as he is not under an SPC/NHL contract so only has 2 pro seasons.


      Also “For the purpose of this section”.  There are different definitions of age, pro years throughout the CBA.  They are using the waiver definition of pro years for expansion.


      Teves, Rafferty same situation as Fabbro.  1 game while Hughes as teenager needed 10 NHL games.

      Thanks for the info guys!


  8. I actually like that defensive group. Pairs a veteran defensemen with an up and coming top4 D. It'll be interesting to see who Seattle takes in the expansion draft
  9. You could tell Hogz was pissed he didn't get put out in the final minute to try and get the hatty!


    Green is such a clueless joke. WIN Win win...

       sorta a ahole think for the coach to do  no biggy hoggy is a gamer 60 ppints next yr  pods 40-50 with 200ft game as well

       we will beat alot of teams if we get a stud man in draft    top10 pick and a early 2nd  were maybe we get a kid that fell out  of first win win 


      please get rid of roussel sutter eriksson edler beagle vesey boyd myers holtby what a waste of 34mill go with the kids

      I wonder about Green. Is his tactic to make sure the young players don't get a big ego? Is he trying to keep them grounded and humble, to be team players instead of trying to reach personal goals? Whatever he's doing seems to be a bit of a mind game. If he's a part of their future core, Hogz should've been out there. He's been their best player. Green sucks.

      I’m sorry but I really don’t understand why people want Green to coach long term. Especially when he pulls douchey moves like this. 

  10. In a season that is all but over, except for games played, you might as well play the kids and mentor them on they're mistakes
  11. Well he's been massively overplayed by Green. Play the kids, let them make mistakes and learn
  12. Were just talking about Rathbones future D partner! Hughes-Myers (Clarke) Juolevi-Schmidt (Woo) Rathbone-Tryamkin/Chatfield
  13. They looked fresh out there considering most of them were sick. Hard to imagine them playing that well down the stretch with that many games. Heres hoping they don't flop to hard and they rotate in some of the younger fresher guys
  14. Not to mention Focht and McDonough are showing very well too. Could easily get at least 3 NHL players out of this draft
  15. Especially in a year that sound very little scouting availability. You always go BPA but this year there wont be as many standouts and obvious best players available
