Defensemen with next 2 picks All other players...…...Baertschi, Granlund, Pouliot, Goldobin, Hutton, Spooner, and Biega will be moved or let go this summer (2019) I also see Tanev moved, my gut says asap, my head says next TDL, probably Draft of 2020 A nice mix you have there. By "buying the farm" you are referring to Karlsson? Ferland is a big piece of land too, if not a farm, so I'm not sure he'd go for Ferland if we're talking 6.5 plus or long-term, NMC. I like him for the money though... wish he'd consider it. D: You have Edler sketched in for 2 more full years. And not Tanev (only 1 year). I like that you have Myers as your new D (UFA this summer?) If we're lucky enough to score a Myers class D and Juolevi is good enough to start top 6, then I don't see the need to choose Edler (and Tanev) over Hutton. Myers, Hughes, Stecher, Juolevi and Hutton are proven minute munchers. Throw in Schenn and Rafferty (he looks like a poor man's Hughes) along with Biega or Woo this Fall? We can be rid of slow and injured (Edler); and defensive-minded and injured (Tanev.) A bonus if we can get a pick or two for them. If you thought Edler had a hard time chasing down players/defending against the rush this year, can you imagine him next Fall or even the Fall after. The days of preserving sentimental favorites who just want to stay in the city they love are over I'm guessing. F: Baertschi, Granlund,Spooner and possibly Motte, Leivo and even Virtanen are not core players, really, (although we keep hoping Jake will be) What's missing in your forward group is this year's pick... from Newhook to Dach to Lavoie and Kakko… any of the top 6 or 7 forwards in this draft will make your 2020 lineup for sure, and possibly your 2019 one as well. (Hughes and Cozens I assume are wildly improbable.) A really nice group is available this year I think. Which lets us dump Schaller or Eriksson. If Lind shows promise and one of this year's forward picks is a center? … we won't need Gaudette and Motte either. (Like you, I see Sutter as gone this Summer or the next TDL.) I wish we had another top 30 pick.... of course Edler, Sutter and Tanev together might yield something like this... with the right team this Summer. With another top 30 pick, Benning might pull another Boeser out of the hat. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
