  1. Flames spent too much in FA, so now they have no choice but to fill the roster with plugs. And they will be stuck in the same CAP position for at least 4 more years...
  2. I've thought all along that the only team that would take Stamkos is Toronto. They'd have to move Nylander though, but that's an easier player to move (I think). I'm not even sure it makes sense, but I can't see him going anywhere else. Would Toronto want to do it? I'm not sure. They are a crazy bunch, so who knows.
  3. I'm fully expecting that to happen. I think we will find he is the Quinn Hughes (light) kind of player, but with a couple minor gaps for improvement. It probably comes down to who has fewer gaps in their game, Juolevi or Rathbone? And at some point, we probably need to trade one of them for a Right D at about the same age and career trajectory.
  4. So does Rafferty slot in then, or do we add a defensive bottom D on the right side? I'm thinking we need a trade in the AHL 2 way contract to plan for injury? I'm not sure who, but I can feel that trade coming soon. Oh, and for those not recognizing this as a smart fleecing... it's not even next years 3rd pick, it's the year after that! Vegas had to unload the contract with no salary retention, and we were probably the only team that offered that with just a pick going the other way.
  5. It's been a long time since I've seen a fleecing like this! Not sure of the player totally just yet, but in terms of trade value... pretty lopsided. I guess Vegas doesn't care, they got AP to replace him.
  6. I think it may be the other way around. Vegas might need to move more salary than Schmidt, so maybe they are letting the offers come in (looking for a Fleury combo). They probably had a couple possible deals in place - Florida being one of them. But as we see, they aren't done yet.
  7. Agreed. I'm not that interested in Vatanen. Hamonic would be a great fit, but I get the feeling he doesn't want to come here. I think we should keep looking as more surprises are ahead.
  8. I agree, I think they might keep him. But if that is via Stamkos going to Toronto, then other domino's may come available. The islanders are handcuffed after Barzal is signed, but they will move other pieces. These other pieces should trickle down to other moves I'm thinking. There will be someone available that we never considered.
  9. NYI and TBL and many other teams still have cap issues. I worry a bit about term and age here, and the PED stuff. I'd prefer younger with less money and term. I'm not sure he's a good fit for the locker room.
  10. It better not be us if not Florida. We can do better.
  11. Well, at least we have something to talk about now. I expect this thread to be interesting. ...and, with AP almost off the board, the domino's might start to fall now.
