  2. Anyone want to first compile a list of teams that have both $11M of available cap space, with the ability left to fill out a full roster, and their own 4 1st round picks?
  3. Likely LTIR for the remainder of his contract.
  4. RIP Joey Jordinson.

  6. The anticipated selection list for the Kraken...

     

    "Most of the Seattle Kraken’s selections were leaked to the press after the club sent its choices to NHL headquarters this morning. Here’s what’s been revealed thus far via various media sources:

     

    Goaltenders: Chris Driedger (Florida), Vitek Vanecek (Washington), Joey Daccord (Ottawa).

     

    Defense: Mark Giordano (Calgary), Adam Larsson (Edmonton), Vince Dunn (St. Louis), Jamie Oleksiak (Dallas), Hadyn Fleury (Anaheim), Cale Fleury (Montreal), Carson Soucy (Minnesota), Jeremy Lauzon (Boston) Kurtis MacDermid (Los Angeles), Gavin Bayreuther (Columbus)

     

    Forwards: Jordan Eberle (NY Islanders), Yanni Gourde (Tampa Bay), Joonas Donskoi (Colorado), Calle Jarnkrok (Nashville), Brandon Tanev (Pittsburgh), Jared McCann (Toronto), Mason Appleton (Winnipeg), Morgan Geekie (Carolina), Nathan Bastian (New Jersey), Kole Lind (Vancouver), Alexander True (San Jose), Carson Twarynski (Philadelphia).

     

    The selections from the Buffalo Sabres, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings and New York Rangers have yet to be revealed as of this posting.

     

    Bear in mind that the names on this list have not been officially announced by the Kraken or the NHL. Those will be made at tonight’s expansion draft. Any trades made by the Kraken will also be announced tonight."

  7. I wonder where Brendan Bachelor got his face off numbers?
  8. Parise and Suter to be bought out?!? Wow...that's some huge dead cap space. And, makes Holland look even worse for the Keith deal.

    This Season’s Buyout Predictions

     

    Some GMs have openly said they would consider buyouts or are expected to. The Oilers, the Flames and the Canucks are the obvious three teams that have albatross contracts they need off their teams.

     

    As shown by last year’s list of bought out players, it’s often the last step before effective retirement for a player, but not every bought out player is at the end of their career.

     

    Vancouver could clear a bit of space by buying out the last year of Loui Eriksson’s deal — he played seven games last year — but by burying him in the minors, he costs them $4.875 million, and a buyout of his remaining season costs $4 million this coming year and $1 million next season. The cash savings are only $1 million.

     

    Meanwhile if they choose to remove the final year of Brock Boeser’s deal, they accomplish more. Boeser, at $5.875 AAV, has a salary this coming season of $7.5 million. His contract expires as an RFA with arbitration rights, guaranteeing him that inflated amount unless the Canucks simply refuse to issue a Qualifying Offer next offseason. They either need to find a trade partner who wants him, hope Seattle takes him, or they just have to let him play out the deal, knowing he’d need to agree to a lower salary to be a player they could keep.

     

    A buyout saves them more than his full cap hit this season, in fact, due to the salary and AAV discrepancy, he has a negative cap hit (or a cap credit) of -$375,000 this coming season and only $1.25 million next year.

     

    Choosing to just live with Eriksson’s cap hit, and buying out Boeser is a much better idea for the Canucks in terms of freeing up cap space, but it does lose them a useful position player. If the Canucks go that route, Boeser could rival Wennberg for the best UFA option to sign off a buyout.

      Why would the Canucks buyout our leading scorer from last year?

      Who wrote this? lol WHAT!!!!

  10. The onus should be on the players to not inflict unnecessary injuries. Players don't have to destroy others in the corners to enable more offence. And were the goaltenders allowed to play the puck in those zones, more would practice it and improve...not just some "retired" goaltenders. If you want to take out injuries by reducing the plays that skaters can make, might as well not let them carry the puck behind the net...or up through the neutral zone and access the offensive blue line, where the bone crushing open ice hits occur. #NoHittingLeague
  11. Disagree. Eliminating the trapezoid makes the game much more boring by killing a lot of the dump and chase plays. The goaltender easily makes it to the puck first, can't be hit and softly plays the puck out, tennis-style. This eliminates a lot of puck battles in the corners and thus potential offence. Eloquently coined, "The Martin Brodeur Rule".
  12. Craig Button has LA picking Luke Hughes at 8th, and the Canucks picking Kent Johnson at 9th.

     

    His list of NHL comparables for each pick is also very interesting.

      Trevor Wong is another BC boy. 5'9, 155 lb. Undersized center, but is an offensive guy. Committed to University of Denver. Wins faceoffs consistently.

       

      Probably a 4th round pick.

      If we're picking a forward, I take McTavish over Johnson any day. If  Mason McTavish, Dylan Guenther, Luke Hughes, William Eklund or Simon Edvinsson are available at #9, we've hit a homerun in the ilk of Quinn, Boeser, Pettersson and Hoglander.

      I have a hard time believing Hughes is going to drop that far.

  13. Prediction: Canucks get the 11th place draft position.
  14. This was pretty good...
