Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Love this analysis. Makes you realize the futility of grouping unrelated trades.

Today @ 2:05 PM ET
So basically a 1st round pick, 2 seconds and Ferland and Fox for Lindholm and Hanifin??? That sucks guys. That's a doozie, not Chiarelli bad but ball park.

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

According to The Athletic, Tavares is expected to meet with five teams in Los Angeles to discuss the possibility of leaving the Islanders, who drafted Tavares No. 1 overall and are the only franchise he's ever played for. Tavares is reportedly ready to hold court with the Toronto Maple Leafs, San J...

Did Benning trade his 6th pick? Can’t see the pick on the SN tracker.
Yes

We've traded the 161st pick for Washington's 186th selection this year and their 6th round pick in 2019.

Benning loading up for 2019. LOL

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Fans at Cow Puke are crazy pissed. But I like this trade for Calgary. Fox already made it known he wasn’t going to sign in Calgary. And ya something is rotten with Hamilton, a real locker room problem. Ferland is past his expiry date with all those concussions.

Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

Cow puke going crazy with the trade. Lindholm and Hanifin for Hamilton, Ferland and Fox. I think they over valued both Hamilton and Ferland. Rumours were that Fox was not going to sign in Calgary in any event. They pick up two solid pieces and yet they are, for the most part, in full revolt. Most th...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Major trade:

No picks involved, it's the five players: Lindholm and Hanifin for Hamilton, Ferland and Fox. As I reported yesterday, the negotiating meeting between Lindholm's agent and the Hurricanes did not go well, paving the way for this trade. From TSN

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

JT’s agent informs Islanders that JT will take interviews. He has selected five teams. No release yet on who the teams are. Believe SJS and Toronto are two of the teams but not confirmed. SJS make a ton of sense. They can sign Thornton on a cap friendly deal with bonuses.

So we take the best skater in the draft with the first pick, what does Jim have up his sleeve for tomorrow? Be nice to deal some dead weight and pick up some more picks Maybe a little dynamo that can do a triple salchow. I'm surprised you are so disturbed by this pick. You've been pinning for a qua...

Rumour is he’s looking to take a centre in the 2nd round.

I’m ok if he gets picks for 2019. Draft party!!

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Interesting, Hughes plays both left and right. Plays where he's needed. Played as a leftie last season because the team had an abundance of righties. See pros and cons to both and his offensive game/moves shift depending upon what side he is on. Other rumours, Benning is focused on a centre in the 2...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Quinn Hughes believes he can play for Canucks 'right now' https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/quinn-hughes-believes-can-play-canucks-right-now/ How can this not make you smile. I'm betting Canucks sign him to his ELC. They need the hype to sell tickets. If he can't crack the Canucks he can develop i...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

With the trade today that the Caps made they will sign Carlson. I’m betting he is off the market. JT will decide in the next 24 hours if he will do his city visits next week. If I’m him, unless the Islanders knock his socks off, I’m doing the city visits. Even then, money is not his number one prior...
