TBL: Raddysh, Foote, girardi and a 2018 2nd round pick

Van: Tanev.


1.) 21 Jun 2018 04:40:34
Rumour is Tampa offered Koekkoek/ Dotchin and a pick so. Foote wasnt on the table for Karlsson so won't be for Tanev. Girardi has 1 year left so not worth trading top prospects to dump and has a NTC. 2 of their top prospects and top pick left this year for an all D no O Dman with injury issues? Just don't see it.

2.) 21 Jun 2018 06:07:37
I agree with jbs

3.) 21 Jun 2018 07:20:47
Whoa way way to much from Tampa and for Tanev? No way.

4.) 21 Jun 2018 09:21:17
Lol Foote alone would be too much, jesus christ.



19 Jun 2018 22:23:37
MTL: 3rd overall

VAN: 7th overall, Ben Hutton

MTL is strongly rumoured to be taking kotkaniemi or even veleno at 3rd cause they desperately need a center so why not trade down so they don’t go off the board and pick up maybe a bottom 6 or even possibly a top 4 dman that needs a change of scenery and canucks potentially draft Zadina who would help their lw Depth.


1.) 20 Jun 2018 01:26:10
I've never heard one rumor suggesting they will take veleno at 3rd and I've read a lot of rumors. and ben hutton doesn't move you up 4 spots, probably not even 1 spot tbh.

2.) 20 Jun 2018 02:04:40
They can get a better if they are moving down that far

3.) 20 Jun 2018 02:43:07
EVEN tho Habs want to draft Kotkaniemi, there will prob be a bidding war for 3, and its going to cost more than a #5 dman.

4.) 21 Jun 2018 04:35:28
Have have a lot of great defence...I don't see it.



13 Jun 2018 11:19:11
Van: Tanev and MDZ (50% retained)

Tor: 2019 1st round pick (lottery protected) liljegren and Ron Hainsey

Van: Edler (50% retained)

Caps: Orpik, 2019 1st round pick, 2020 2nd round pick

Van: Sutter

Flo: Heponiemi, 2018 2nd round pick

All fit under the cap and all help out each teams needs.

Toronto wants a top pairing rhd right now to compete right now and give up nothing from the active roster plus pick up a younger and cheaper player to replace hainsey.

Caps clear out cap space to resign Carlson but at the same time add a better lhd to replace Orpik who is also younger and maybe be able to resign him in 2019 when cap is higher, but the thing is they are now able to resign Carlson and their remaining rfas

Florida adds a need in center and get a guy that can bring great leadership and some experience while giving away a decent B prospect and a second round pick this year, Florida adds more depth and this could help get them that very little push to get in the playoffs.


1.) 13 Jun 2018 14:32:46
Bro right now Heponiemi is prolly better than Sutter lmao. no way overpaid sutter gets a highly touted prospect and a second! you ain't getting either for sutter lol.

2.) 13 Jun 2018 16:34:01
Sutter for Lucic is closer and Leafs would have zero interest in MDZ not giving the 2019 1st and Lilijgren for Tanev.



26 May 2018 07:49:10
SJS: 2019 1st round pick, Martin

Van: Edler.


1.) 26 May 2018 08:26:05
Sharks don't have a 1st next year since they resigned Kane.



24 May 2018 22:13:06
Pittsburgh may want to move on from letang because he’s not as good defensively as they would like and they did manage to win last years cup without him.

Pit: Letang

Van: Tanev

Then, Canucks trade letang to Dallas

Van: Letang

Dal: Spezza, Heiskanen and 2019 first (top 3 protected)

Dallas needs help on the back end and even though letang comes in at 7.25 million, spezza is coming off at 7.5 million so they’ll have the cap space and then letang contract comes off in 2022 which is also when klingbergs contract will need an extension so he’ll most likely get a downgrade in pay and then their 2 best rhd will cost a combined 11.5 million for the next 4 years which is definitely reasonable.


1.) 25 May 2018 03:12:19
Tanev is not even close to Letang. Tanev might be the most over rated player in the league. Guy can’t even play a full season but people (mainly Vancouver fans) think he’s a #1 D in the league.

2.) 25 May 2018 03:52:59
Letang is still very valuable and a great leader. I think they could do better if they decided to move him.

3.) 25 May 2018 03:59:19
Letang will not get you tbat not even close. He is getting older now and has injury history.

Is it just me or does Dobson seem like a bad pick within the top 8 as they’re are more players which higher ceilings than him that may potentially be picked after him? For example Wahlstrom, Boqvist and Hughes even.


1.) 20 Jun 2018 16:51:14
1st overall is the only given in this draft. the rest could go in any order dobson could go anywhere from 4th to 10th imo.

2.) 20 Jun 2018 22:21:00
Yeah I wouldn't put much thought into any draft rankings. I say Dahlin 100% at 1st obviously and Svechnikov about 95% at 2nd. After that all I know is that Colt65 will have half of the top 10 on his biggest busts of all time list by christmas if they don’t have 20 goals.

3.) 20 Jun 2018 23:48:35
I think Montreal would be crazy not to take Zadina even tho their need is at Center. i'd say draft the best player available and try to work a trade for a Center need or look to free agency.

My order would be





20 Jun 2018 10:05:19
Hinge ottowa has the 4th pick this year and that could potential Zadina, would it be better to just give it up and start the rebuild this year rather than wait a year and potentially lose Karlsson and Duchene for less than market value or even nothing at all.


1.) 20 Jun 2018 16:53:59
So lose for hughes in other words? That's a tough one but I think you have to draft the sure thing this year. if you still wanna trade karlson and duchene go for it and maybe even what you get back can contribute and help the team finish better then 4th last.

2.) 20 Jun 2018 21:51:26
I would draft the best possible at that point and then try to finish as best you can this year so your first round going to COL isn't too high.



16 Jun 2018 22:25:57
If Domi can get Galchenyuk, what can sven baertschi get in return?


1.) 16 Jun 2018 22:56:00
Domi shouldn't of got galchenyuk lol so don't try and think baertshi gets much because of that trade

2.) 17 Jun 2018 23:35:48
Like a mid second round pick.
Oilers should offer their second rounder for him, as they need help on the wings.



06 Jun 2018 03:45:45
Did the firing or Garth snow simply mean he was unable to convince Tavares of resigning and that’s why Lou is the gm now hoping to do what snow couldn’t?


1.) 07 Jun 2018 07:11:10
I think it probably had more to do with the fact that Snow was a horrible GM.

2.) 07 Jun 2018 13:36:39
He traded Rienhart for Barzel that’s enough to gain my respect. Also Fleeced Chicago with Leddy. He just needed another good dman and a goalie.

3.) 07 Jun 2018 20:14:14
Reinhart for Barzal will go down as one of the greatest fleecings in history (and it was Barzal and another pick) but unfortunately one great trade mixed with 12 years of disgrace atworst and mediocrity at best doesn’t even out. He needed to go and Craig Button said it right when he said don’t just evaluate Snow, evaluate the evaluators, who kept him employed for 12 years with no results or progress.

4.) 08 Jun 2018 07:51:09
Don’t forget eberle for Strome was another good trade. Aslong as they don’t lose him in free agency next year. Whether they trade him for picks or resign him, it’ll
Go down as another fleece from snows end.



24 May 2018 22:44:43
Honestly the expansion draft, imo was overly generous, what was it 7 forwards, 3 defensemen and 1 goalie or 8 skaters and 1 goalie? Teams like Minnesota, Nashville, Columbus, Anaheim, Pittsburgh, Washington, St. Louis, Boston, Ottawa and Florida were all robbed off good valuable players. It looked like the NHL was punishing those teams for building a deep squad and they had no choice but to accept the loss of a good nhl player.

Minnesota didn’t want to lose Dumba so they had to trade Haula and Tuch to keep their own player
Nashville had to lose Neal who is a 30 goal scorer and a top 6 forward
Columbus at the time would have rather not have lost Anderson because at the time he had more value so they gave a first round pick to persuade Vegas to pick Karlsson.
Anaheim could have easily lost Vatanen so they trade their own prospect In Theadore to keep him
Pittsburgh could have lost rust, sheary, hagelin or dumoulin so they chose they rather lose their very good backup goalie in fleury
Washington could have lost their really good backup in grubauer but Vegas chose a decent top 4 defensemen in Nate Schmidt
St. Louis lost a 25 goal scorer and a 50 point man to vega
Boston lost a top 4 defensemen in Colin Miller
Ottawa lost their 2nd best defender cause they couldn’t get dion to waive him nmc
And Florida was going to lose a good forward either way although they at the time viewed Reilly smith as an overpaid underperforming forward so they packaged marchesault to get rid of smith contract which seemed like a decent idea at the time

All in all themes 10 teams which made up at the time 33% of the overall teams in the league were punished for building way too deep rosters and were forced to lose valuable assets. Also why did Vegas have to get such an easier time building their team with the 7f,3D,1g or 8skaters 1 goalie format when expansions team like San Jose, Columbus, Florida had an even smaller group of players to select, those teams spent decades building a good team and have had no success for the longest time (apart from Florida’s odd Stanley cup finals appearance in 1996), Columbus to this day have not won a playoff series and the jets/ thrashers franchise has won 2 series in their entire existence. The expansions teams in the last did not get the luxury of receiving picks as ways to not select certain players because teams were allowed to protect more than 7f,3D and 1g or 8 skaters and a goalie, yes the 500 million had to be justified but simply getting a team I. Las Vegas should have been more than enough, also lastly, with the Seattle expansion, Vegas would be exempt so where’s the equality there?


1.) 25 May 2018 09:09:30
Two things:
1. Yes, the expansion rules were more "generous" than in previous expansion drafts but that was not really hard. It's not like there was any prime talent available for VGK.
2. Having said that, "blaming" their success this year on expansion rules is just laughable. No one - literally no one on this planet - looked at Vegas' roster after the expansion draft and said: "Yeah, that's definitely a playoff team. ", let alone predicting they'd advance to the Cup Final. Basically everyone agreed that they'd be in the botom 5 of the league and most even thought they had done a rather bad job during the expansion draft.

So the only context where it makes sense to mention the expansion rules is in comparing this team to other expansion teams, but definitely not in the reasoning for why this team is playing for the Cup from Monday on. That's disrespectful to Gallant and the players, who all had something to prove and obviously have done just that.
Maybe it should also rather be a knock on the 30 other GMs that either oversaw talent (CBJ, Karlsson for example) or made extremely stupid decisions (FLA, Smith and Marchessault in order to protect Petrovic) .

2.) 25 May 2018 11:29:18
Theres two opinions on Vegas, imo.

The first being that the draft was over generous.
The second being that we all complain about it because of Vegas’ success.

My opinion is a bit of both.
If Vegas was terrible this year, as many of us predcited, nobody would care. Literally nobody, because they wouldn’t have suddenly become a supposed dynasty or whatnot. People would have forgot about the expansion draft, its rules, and how it worked, and would simply be happy to try and take all the possible poiu ts out of Vegas when the teams met.

Still however, I do believe that the draft was a bit generous. I always thought it was. Ever since it happened, I felt it was a stinger for a lot of teams. The thing for me was the selections of like Shea Theodore, or James Neal, players like that. Those selections for me, really can’t be justified. The teams (ANA and NSH) were smart in terms of who they protected, protected well, and had to lose good players/ young talent because of questionable choices. Like, unlike teams like Florida, St. Louis and Minnesota who protected poorly and deserved to lose who yhey lost, ANAHeim just couldn’t protect all five of their good dman, without losing one.

For me, for the next expansion draft, I’d like to see it be something like, 10/ 11 skaters + 1 goalie protected for all teams. Because really, the 4F/ 4D choice was stupid and hurt teams with good dcores like Anaheim and Nashville. 10/ 11 skaters allows for the team to choos who to protect, and not be forced into choosing 7 forwards and 3 d.

3.) 25 May 2018 11:51:49
yes the expansion draft was more generous then other years but I still thought this team wouldn't even make the playoffs. its just crazy what they have done and I bet the next team even with the same rules will not make the playoffs. this is hollywood movie script IMO probably more so then the miracle on ice. do you believe in miracles? Yes!

4.) 25 May 2018 12:57:21
More generous than ever but a few gms really messed up and it still wasn't a team anyone expected to make the playoffs. Also Florida move looked like a trainwreck from day 1 and anyone who knew anything about that team or either of those players knew it.

5.) 25 May 2018 20:51:08
Also don’t forget the picks they collected. They could have had an even better team if they didn’t build toward the future. Yeah I, like pretty much everyone didn’t think they’d do good at all but the reason I’m salty about it is because a team doesn’t deserve playoffs year one. Lol and yeah I’m an Oil fan so it stings even more.

Saad was traded at Maximus value, he just completed 2 full seasons at getting 50+ points including a 31 goal seasons and almost a 25 goal season, last year his value wasn’t pretty high and he was coming “home” so that increase his value aswell, today he may be worth a 1/ 3 if panarin but on the right team he can still be effective, but if panarin was to be traded he should fetch more than what Boston gave for rick nashb.
