KKnight Posted February 5 Share Posted February 5 (edited) Just pondering what approach we should take to the offseason and what our prospect pool/ team sorely lacks. In my opinion the aim should be to address center, Two way defence (especially rhd) and add tough/gritty reliable two way players. So far: __ OUT: Horvat (NYI) IN: Beauvillier, Raaty & top 12 protected 1st 2023 or unprotected 2024. TDL Schenn: market is strong for him and players like him notoriously get acquired for more than their actual worth. Boston,Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary all involved. Edm: Schenn Van: Schaefer, 2nd 2023 and Salary dump. Really think there will be a bidding war for Schenn, this should drive up the price. Obviously want Holloway, but don't think that's possible. Schaefer I would say is a B rated prospect and adds a big bodied gritty winger to our prospect pool. Boeser: Wild: Boeser (w/15% retention $999,750 annual aav) Canucks: Lambos and 2nd round pick 2023 After TDL: Beauvillier Raaty NYI 1st 2023 protected, 2024 unprotected Schaefer Lambos 2023 2nd round pick (Edm,Wild) College Free Agents Aiden Mcdonaugh & Jake Livingstone - both signed at end of college season and play out their first year of the entry level deal. Draft We end up finishing bottom 4 and the Islanders end up missing the playoffs and sliding down a few spots (lots of teams have 2-4 games in hand on them). We end up breaking the curse and landing #2OA and islanders give us the 9th OA pick this year. Before the draft we make a trade: Columbus: Miller Van: Peeke, Sillinger and 3rd round pick 2023 Next is Myers: Myers is not going to get high level assets, but there should be at least a couple teams interested, based on not wanting to hand out long term lucrative contracts to players in UFA. Dallas: Myers (50% retention) Van: 3rd round pick 2024 Recap Out: Horvat, Boeser, Schenn, Miller, Myers In: Beauvillier, Raaty, 9th OA 2023, Lambos, Schaefer, 2nd round pick 2023 (Edmonton, Wild), Mcdonaugh, Livingstone, Peeke, Sillinger, 3rd round pick 2023 (Columbus) 2024 (Dallas) 2nd OA - C/LW Pwf - Adam Fantilli - Guy is an instant impact on our team and changes the dynamic. 9th OA - RW - Colby Barlow - two way power winger that has no problem scoring goals. Trade our 2 acquired 2nds for 24-26 and then we select. Charlie Stramel - C Pwf - the second youngest collegiate player and will have plenty of time to refine his game. Adam Gajan - G - committed to University of Minnesota - 6'4 big slender goalie. Gaa is okay, but his Save % is great. That says to me that he's facing high quality chances on the regular, but still making large quantities of saves. Review: Out: Horvat, Boeser, Schenn, Miller, Myers, 2nd round picks (Minnesota & Edmonton) In: Beauvillier, Raaty, Fantilli, Barlow Lambos, Schaefer, Mcdonaugh, Livingstone, Peeke, Sillinger, Stramel & Gajan. Our team is most likely going to suck the following year, so we can continue to address our D in a draft year, stockpiled with High end Defenseman in 2024. Kuzmenko - Pettersson - Mikheyev Beauvillier - Fantilli - Garland Hoglander - Sillinger - Podkolzin Joshua - Lazar - Lockwood Hughes - Schenn (ufa) OEL- Peeke Rathbone - Livingstone Demko Martin Top Prospects: Mcdonaugh (AHL) Barlow Lekkerimaki Pettersson Lambos Raaty Stramel Gajan Schaefer Thoughts?
