Who do you guys think your team will lose in the expansion draft next year assuming that it's the same format 7F 3D 1G

The leafs will probably lose Zach Hyman if they keep


Player X


Agree0 Disagree5

15 May 2019 12:22:56
If nylander doesn't have a big comeback season definitely leave him unprotected and add for new team to take him. anywho Chicago won't lose anything significant, shot themselves in the foot by giving Ntc out like candy so got to protect all them. Just got to protect debrincat and strome. Hope the team needs a overpaid defenseman to reach cap floor and Seabrook waives his contract rights to go.

15 May 2019 14:27:53
Why leave a 90 point player unprotected? That’s what Nylander will score next year.

15 May 2019 15:19:30
Wow, slow down there. You thing he is going to have a 50% increase to his most productive season one year after he had his worst season?

15 May 2019 20:27:35
I believe this year went as wrong as it could possibly go I think he will have a similar but lesser career trajectory as Marner.

16 May 2019 00:47:51
I agree VB that he's going to improve. 90 may be a stretch, however he is talented enough, and with the right linemates, its somewhat possible. I'd say more like 70 points however.

16 May 2019 04:01:40
Vbb’s I think the leafs will lose or trade one of Kadri, Nylander, Kapanen or Johnsson this year. Hopefully to address a RH top 4 dman.

16 May 2019 04:44:55
Nylander getting 90pts next year?! 😂
Good one.

16 May 2019 13:01:57
70 seems reasonable.

17 May 2019 00:30:40
I also believe they’ll move a forward.

18 May 2019 13:07:44
Imo Nylander slotted beside Matthews will fetch maybe 60-80 points tops

14 May 2019 02:37:18
After Hughes and kakko, what do you think the top 10 will look like? What do you think the order will be?

Agree1 Disagree0

14 May 2019 06:04:34
There is still one more big tourney yet that could change rankings. Cozens dach Bryam could potentially round out the top 5 but they will have some serious competition.

15 May 2019 00:15:06
Byram should go 3rd bit Chicago having taken defenceman in the first round last 3 years may go for Cozens or even podkolzin if they’re willing to take the chance on him with his khl contract.

15 May 2019 12:32:56
Byram is the only defenceman in the top ten on most lists I've seen so itll be interesting where he goes. Seen him 5th to 8th so depends who needs what. Chicago should go with a forward but if they take him. damn their blueline is set for years. Just got to wait to see if the young guys turn out but so far so good.

16 May 2019 08:54:35
The boy from my town should be top 5.Byram is a beast. he's not as good as Scotty Neidermayer, but he's going to a top pair, 60 to 70 point dman in the future .

13 May 2019 04:58:56
kawhi hit the shots in the end but I think Lowry and Ibaka won the game

Agree2 Disagree1

13 May 2019 14:46:25
Kawhi dropped 41 points. I would argue that Kawhi won every game for them that series.

13 May 2019 16:33:29
Yeah if you look only at the stats you could argue that but in that 3rd quarter had it not been for Ibaka and Lowry on both defence and offence philly would have been so far ahead in the 4th quarter that even kawhi wouldn't haven't been able to catch them.

13 May 2019 16:34:52
I think kawhi took close to 40 shots he struggled through large parts of that game Lowry and Ibaka kept things close when nobody else was doing much of anything.

13 May 2019 23:31:01
Yeah but can he quarterback a power play? 🤷🏼‍♂️.

14 May 2019 06:06:17
I doubt he can do much of anything with skates on lol.

15 May 2019 01:58:00
Well he’d be better then Lucic.

15 May 2019 12:36:10
Haha. Vb takes shots at lucic when touch has not anything to do with it. Now in convinced lucic slept with vb mom. So much hate it has to be something deeper.

16 May 2019 13:08:45
How is that hate I’m just stating my opinion.

17 May 2019 22:42:45
lucic made pat maroon look fast.

11 May 2019 22:46:32
Oilers fans, what do you think the idea of selecting a fast, agile LD in the draft like Cam York or Thomas Harley in the first round and snatching a winger in the second round?

York/Harley-Bouchard sounds scary.

Agree0 Disagree5

12 May 2019 03:58:45
One of the two will be available around 15-20 right? Oil could get something significant moving back 10 spots out of the top 10. I’m on board. Also heard Podkolzin dropped far so he could be an option later too.

12 May 2019 07:39:01
Harley should be around at 15th I don't think York will I also doubt podkolzin drops in lower then 9 the or 10th.

11 May 2019 22:34:34
Any opinions or thoughts on which team might trade down from the Top 10?

Think Colorado is most likely since they already have a stacked prospect pool as well as having the 16th pick. 4-10 is pretty much a toss-up anyways.

Oilers might move down too as they don't really need a top 10 pick but just need to improve the overall team and the winger they're looking for will be available later in the first.

Agree2 Disagree2

12 May 2019 02:45:52
Maybe Ottawa.

17 May 2019 22:45:28
I'm curious if Colorado does anything, the guys in the intermission the other night were saying they have 3 or 4 picks in the top 2 rounds. maybe they move up from 4? I dunno, just speculating.

10 May 2019 06:34:48
Which pesky line would you choose to have as your second line.


Matthew Tkachuk - Nazem Kadri - Patric Hornqvist


Brad Marchand - Tomas Hertl - Leo Komarov

Agree0 Disagree7

10 May 2019 08:35:14
#2 but I didn’t realize Hertl was pesky.

10 May 2019 12:20:26
Hertl’s pesky? Really? And its close, but I think #2. Komarovs easily the worst of the bunch tho.

10 May 2019 20:06:07
Hertl isn’t pesky at all. Number 2 pretty easily for me tho.

10 May 2019 20:22:47
Lol #2 Marchand sticks out way to much.

10 May 2019 05:29:23
So when is bostons luck going to run out? Soon I hope

Agree3 Disagree1

10 May 2019 06:50:02
Carolina killed themselves with penalties. I don't know what they were trying to do.

10 May 2019 15:00:53
Yeah a couple of those shouldn’t have been called though.

10 May 2019 18:15:44
I agree with Habby. The reffing has been all over the place.

17 May 2019 22:46:52
is bostons luck going to run out first or San Jose?

07 May 2019 21:23:15
Montreal looking for

Top 4LHD(23 years old or under, good skating, good puck moving skills and must have decent defense).


Also add what your team would want for him.

Pieces not available for trade:

Max Domi
Mete(believe he will have a really great season next year).

Be reasonable thnx.

Agree0 Disagree5

07 May 2019 22:13:38
Domi, Romanov and Mete are DEFINITELY available for trade for the right piece. There are likely others from that list but whatever.

Habs will likely target Barrie and Hamilton (tho is he still available after this post-season? ) . Pesce might be the odd man out as insane as that sounds and will probably be got for a steal of a deal. But MTL won’t be the only shoppers obv so it could be an interesting off-season.

07 May 2019 22:16:00
So, you're saying you want a very valuable piece from another team, but aren't willing to give up anything valuable to get it. That's going to be tough.

07 May 2019 22:35:31
We’ll there’s a big difference between those 2 dman Sanhiem would be the easier target. If the Canadians offered a overpayment like Josh Brook and their 1st I’m sure Philly would consider.

07 May 2019 22:45:42
I think pretty much anyone can be availablebijbthe Habs, except Price and KK. however, I don't see Habs making any really big splash. would be great to add a top 4 dman. but, I thing Bergevin will maybe take a shot at Gardiner.

08 May 2019 00:52:10
Sosa brought up Gardiner and I forgot about him. I could see MTL tossing a ton of cash at him. Like 6x$6.
Not saying he’s worth that but I do see him getting that on the market.

08 May 2019 03:53:26
So you want a quality defender but aren't willing to give up anything?

08 May 2019 13:02:57
Id rather take a run at edler then gardiner.

08 May 2019 14:08:26
Edler is quite a bit older though. Not that I'm a big Gardiner fan, but I prefer his age. and mobility.

08 May 2019 20:57:03
Elder is still better in every facet and would be more likely to sign a 3 or 4 year deal then gardiner would.

09 May 2019 02:32:57
Edler is not a better skater or breakout stater then Gardiner so saying every facet is an over statement.

09 May 2019 05:52:57
There’s a lot of teams that may target Barrie or Hamilton but Montreal won’t be one of them. They look pretty good on the right side with Weber and Petry. I could see Gardiner being a good fit along side Weber.

09 May 2019 06:03:32
Id say he's just as good at both those things if not slightly better.

09 May 2019 13:28:15
You can make an argument Gardiner is the best skater as a deffensman in the game the one thing he has is Elite agility.

09 May 2019 14:14:15
I guess you could argue that vbbb but if you didn't watch his every game and watched other teams more often you would probably see their are a lot of dmen who skate just as well or better then gardiner I can think of at least 2 on the team I cheer for that I think could match up against him.

09 May 2019 20:43:37
Karlsson maybe but that’s it he’s unreal at skating.

09 May 2019 21:48:50
Karlsson maybe? Lol.

09 May 2019 22:37:39
Gardiner a good skater. he just doesn't skate to the right places.

10 May 2019 00:55:54
I think I’ve argued against you saying Reilly is the best skater in the league VB. Pretty lucky to get the 1st and 2nd best skating D in the league.
Why’s he the best though in all seriousness? The fastest, the most agile, the strongest with the puck? Pretty hard to claim a D is the best skater when there’s a ton of good skating D in the league. I’m.

10 May 2019 04:15:08
I’ve never defended vbb’s but I’ve also never heard anyone say Reilly is a top skater. I could be wrong though Ebs. Gardiner is an excellent skater and usually makes a very good first pass. Is he one of the best? I have no idea. The guy gets 40-50 pts a year, he’s not as bad as people seem to think. Let’s see him on a more defensive team and see what happens. I’d like to see him go back home to Minnesota but they are pretty solid on the left side. Maybe Minnesota trades Brodin for some help offensively and signs Gardiner? Minnesota could use some help offensively IMO and Gardiner helps with that.

10 May 2019 04:20:48
Before I’m corrected, Gardiner only had 30 pts this year. He missed 20 games and I’m sure he was playing injured for some of the season. In saying that, Gardiner could be a risky signing although I think he will recover just fine.

10 May 2019 05:27:44
Just to be clear nobody is debating whether or not gardiner is a real good skater. But best in the league come on.

10 May 2019 06:43:38
I know habby. I’m sure there are a lot of smooth skating defenseman. Unfortunately I don’t get to see as many games as I’d like to so that I can form a better opinion.

11 May 2019 22:38:36
Think it would be better to invest in a cheap, low risk defender. Matt Benning displays flashes of offence by joining the rush often and having a good but inconsistent shot. Inconsistent on defence, but cheap contract.
Not Top 4 obviously but again, he can be a cheap option and you can pick up somebody like Cam York in the draft.

12 May 2019 02:49:06
Gardiner has the best agility up with Karlsson, Dahlin and maybe Kylington I’d say he undisputedly the smoothest skating dman in the game.

12 May 2019 04:51:39
How you describe benning is the same as something we already have. Mike reily.

12 May 2019 07:42:26
@vbb give it a rest man.

17 May 2019 22:51:02
marc methot was very solid beside karlsson in ottawa for many years, covering a lot of his defensive gaff. . I wonder if he has anything left in the tank and if he could be a perfect complement beside weber for reasonably cheap and short term? just a wild thought.

07 May 2019 21:22:20
What would your team give up for Tatar.

Agree0 Disagree1

07 May 2019 22:14:03
A 3rd and B-level prospect.

07 May 2019 22:35:59
Nothing because Toronto is cap strapped. Decent player tho.

07 May 2019 22:46:07
Let's keep Tatar.

06 May 2019 18:48:04
I want to get a unbiased opinion from this site, .

Did you guys see the Colton Parayko Slap Shot that took out bishop.

Do you agree with the way the refs called it or do you think they should blow the whistle dead immediatly.

Also take into account bishop has already flopped twice in this series.

Agree1 Disagree1

06 May 2019 21:00:50
Bishop “flopping” previously has nothing to do with it. By the rules they it can be argued they made the proper call. I think rules need to change somehow though so that when a goalie is down and out the other team can’t score on the empty net.

06 May 2019 22:26:00
It was correct to not call the play dead. It’s in the rule book. End of story.

07 May 2019 04:36:35

The reason I mentioned him going down to draw penalties. Was because he did in fact stay out and play for a while.

My thi g is if you change the rules. You need to remove the goalie indefiantly. This would prevent faking.

07 May 2019 22:15:12
3 dumpsterheads disagree with me stating fact?
Sounds like this site, yeah. 🙄.

08 May 2019 05:21:39
Rule is that it’s the refs discretion, they can call it dead if they feel it’s a serious injury. With that rule I don’t mind it. I think there needs to be a bit of an exception for goalies since it leaves an open net, and maybe make it that if a goalie does down and the game has to be stopped they need to leave the ice for 10 minutes of gameplay to dissuade faking it. Nothing will be perfect but I think it’s better than what happened.

08 May 2019 05:33:58
Don't feel bad I've already got 2 disagree for posting the oilers have a new Gm lol. And by saying this I should have another disagree soon.
