Meeting with the media just after the trade freeze is lifted…

 

Coincidence? I think not.

 

He’s going to have to explain why he paid two 2nd round picks to dump Eriksson.

I hope things start to become positive for the Canucks and Benning has some good things to report. Does he usually address the media the day before a Draft?  I wonder if there is some big trade news to announce, big changes coming, and feels he needs to do it "in person". 

 

Feels like the calm before the storm.

Doesn't he do an interview every year just before the draft?  They discus how excited they are and they have had all of the scouting meetings ......bla.........bla....

 

I don't think this is for an announcements.

Larsson from Seattle?

If it is a swap for Schmidt then YES. 

 

Otherwise they don't have the cap space.

Honestly... i was a little scared right after reading this.

The article stated three things besides the Kraken's season opener and home opener info. 

 

1. Kole Lind is close to becoming an NHL player 

2. Sharks want to move away from Martin Jones and might be a destination for Holtby 

3. Kraken have 29 million left under the cap 

 

So which one scared you?

The normal draft preamble. Maybe explain why he didn't protect Lind in the expansion draft. Nothing special. I am hopeful to hear about a trade, but I doubt it.

Kraken will make moves to solidify that forward group with 29 mil. left

 

Eichel for 2nd overall pick, Lauzon McCann, Hayden Fleury

 

Tyler Johnson, 2nd round pick and 3rd round pick 2021 for future consideration

 

signing Dougie Hamilton

 

Tarasenko with 2 mil retention for Tyler Pitlick

 

Lineup:

 

Eberle-Eichel-Tarasenko

Appleton-Gourde-Donskoi

Jankrok-Johnsson-Lind

Tanev-Blackwell-UFA

 

Larsson-Hamilton

Giordano-Dunn

Oleksiak-Soucy

Cholowski

Macdermid

 

Vinecek

Dreiger

 

The rest traded for prospect and picks plus some go to farm

Why is JB talking to the media tomorrow? If he comes out and tips his hand about what he is trying to do but has not yet accomplished it is going to be another head scratcher moment.

I think this is where he shoots himself in the foot the most.

 

Make the moves and then tell fans why you did them. Don’t make all these claims about what you wanna do then not deliver.

 

He just gives the media and fans way too much ammo.

Yes and no.  He will have some trade to announce but it won't be anything to do with Louie.  Have faith DeNiro!
