Rumours abound that Winnipeg split on who to pick 2nd. Many in the organization feel Laine not the overall best fit. Though they want one of the Finns so it is unlikely they will trade down.

Montreal making a strong push to move up to 4th or 5th to get Dubois.

Calgary also trying to move up to get Dubois.

His stock really rising.

Edmonton looking to move 4th to Calgary or Montreal for much needed D help plus a 1st.

I'm starting to wonder if there's going to some movement in the top 6 as the draft goes live and a targeted player is only 1-2 spots above a team's position. Could get interesting...

Like most years there is so much talk about movement in the top five but rarely does it pan out. Unless it is a particularly weak draft. This being deep, albeit limited players who are NHL ready, teams aren't as willing to part with much to move up and teams moving down want a lot more than is reasonable.

With the cap now being announced and with expansion formalized, along with the expansion draft rules, teams may begin to jockey more to clear cap and roster space.

Seems so many teams trying to move UFAs for picks but few takers. I still think Columbus has to do something to not only clear cap but NMCs they have. It will only get worse for them next year to try and do so. On the other hand, they can only lose one player to expansion so they may be more willing to do that than trade down this year.

I think it's a lot of talk but little substance. Montreal would be nuts to trade PK. Edmonton can recover a D by trading an existing player, so keep the pick.

Agreed, massive ticket especially considering what you would have to give up. Love the guy as a player but no way the Nucks have the assets to get him.

Fully expect the Nucks to do nothing except pick at 5 tomorrow, then try for the home run in free agency. Given how few of the big teams have cash to spend, I wouldn't be surprised to see two of Eriksson/Lucic/Brouwer/Ladd/etc signed. Won't do much for the long term but the team will be better next year.

I have a bad feeling that if Dubois is gone , Elmer will pick Juolevi. Calgary will walk away with Tkachuck.

Apparently that's how it will go down, if PLD is gone expect us to draft Juolevi, and what's wrong with that? Everyone on 1040 wants Juolevi if PLD is gone.

If Benning wants to beat the Subban for Draisaitl and 4th overall we need to offer Horvat and 5th overall. I'm on board with it

At the infamous 1990 draft in Vancouver, Quinn was looking for a power forward and drafted Shawn Antoski just before Keith Tkachuk. Hopefully this time around if he's still available, we'll right the wrong and pick up Tkachuk Jr. :P
