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

That’s what smart GMs do when rebuilding. More lottery tickets= more chances to draft a good player.

Point is nobody drafted two seasons earlier was likely going to make much of an impact on a cup run.

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

The best offer tabled for Karlsson was by Tampa - a stay at home, average skating D-man - Foote, a first pick ( which would have been somewhere between 28th and 31st and a 2nd round pick which would have been somewhere around 60th. How exactly is that a good haul for a Norris Trophy D-man? It has n...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Lol Stone has averaged ten more points a year and is three years younger and a much better two way player. Yes they are exactly the same. :lol: Duchene has averaged five more points and plays a more important position in addition to being to years younger. He has played for Team Canada in a best on ...

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

Bo, Gaunce and Hutton are the only players left that were drafted by the last regime. If you include the entire league, Connauton and Schroeder round out the abysmal era that was Gillis & co. 37 draft picks over six entry drafts and only one single legitimate player. :shock: Absolutely appalling. Y...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Ryan Ellis signs an eight year deal for 6.25 million per. Good player, decent cap hit. Roman Josi is there best D man and criminally underpaid at 4 million per. He has two more years left. His next contract will start with an 8 or 9 instead of a 4. I wonder if there’s some truth to Nashville shoppin...

It won’t be enough. Think Horvat + two firsts for 1 overall

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

I think we are lottery team again this year, but probably in the 8 - 12 range. We will be introducing a few rookies and do a sell off after. It is the year after I think we will make the playoffs. Only 1 more year of pain, IMO. I think they could pass five or six in the east and maybe one or two in...

I'd say we are picking outside the top 15 next year.
I’d love to know which 7 teams in the West you think Vancouver will finish ahead of

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Ottawa, though they’ve made some dumb mistakes isn’t in near as bad of shape as a lot of people think. They have three major pieces to move that they could get a ton back for in EK, Stone and Duchene. That return looks like three 1sts, and four or five high end prospects/young players imho. I humbl...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Ottawa has three very good young prospects in Brown, Batherson and Chlapik not to mention an excellent young D man in Chabot. Thing is why the hell would they deal away Tkachuk who is now close to signing and not returning to college? They seem pretty high on the kid.

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

I think both Tanev and Edler could land first rounders if they stay healthy. Thing is if you deal both a bottom 3 D (at best) would then easily become far and away the leagues worst. It could take years to build it back up.

I’m fine dealing one but the other has to stay
