… and an extra 2nd in the 2020 draft.

Not too shabby!


If only we had a GM that valued picks and was good at drafting.

So Tampa had to give up Gusev a 2nd and a 4th to unload Garrison

We do!

Can't take too many picks per year, only so many contracts allowed each year.

Hey, don't forget Benning has added many prospects apart from the draft.

Vegas though had to stock the shelves and the NHL helped them do just that (for $500M)

Of all the expansion teams in NHL history, Vegas was handed the best odds ever.

They hit the jackpot, they were holding all the cards, made out like one-armed bandits...

Plus a 2nd to acquire him.

I too am pleased Gaunce is retained. Green can get him to the next level.

Though for a team that sorely lacks in push back, Jim did just lose one of the few who do.

Some might say the Canucks came out well in the expansion draft.

Team gained cap space by sacrificing a depth dman without having to give up picks.

Other way around, goof-ball. Get your eyes checked. They don't work.
Edler just plain played a non physical, uninspired, laid-back, brand of hockey.
It's possible his mobility is hampered, I don't know. He looked lost in space.
Just like your ability to analyse hockey !

Best part:

Actually, Vegas did well (imo), but it was pretty easy for them to do. They controlled the entire process and every team could only talk to them... kinda like PlayStation trading. Only one guy holding the controller.

2 things:

1. How the hell did Messier weasel his way into the NHL trophy list (it's particularly appalling that he gets to select the winner)?

2. I thought there was a proposal at one point to add a second Defenseman trophy to reward the truly defensive D-men. The 'all-round' concept generally leans heavily towards scoring. Paul Coffey would never have made a list of finalists for a true defensive award, yet he has multiple Norris trophies.

By the way Per, if the voting included the playoffs, Karlsson would have won the Norris and the Hart, but for regular season it's hard to deny Burns - he had an exceptional year.

The league certainly did well by their newest expansion club. One wonders if a Canadian expansion club, should Bettman and Co. even deign to grant one where it ever snows at all, would get the same treatment. I wouldn't hold my breath - the New York office knows us Hosers would schlep the dough to watch BS hockey on a shit expansion team, so why bother???
Love the Sport. Love the Team.
