Does he extend Lappy and Tanev? Does he find a taker for Ballard, for Booth? Will a Luongo deal get announced between now and the draft, a mere 7 days away? Does Manny retire and become an assistant coach?

Will he exercise a buyout or two before the draft?

Usually we have a few weeks to a month to get ready for the funny season but it begins as soon as the cup is won.

A lot of speculation that several tams have deals about out be announced but they or Bettman does not want to take eyes off the finals so they wait patiently until the cup is hoisted. Will we see a rush then of announcements form around the league?

Well, if he plans to trade anyone and then get a player back he wants to buy out one would presume that needs to happen very very quickly as the buyout window is fast approaching and is only open until July 4th. It could be as early as Wednesday night or Friday depending upon tonights game.

Seems like we are finally letang Ballard free!

"@krufrank

Hearing there is a good chance Ballard could be traded to MIN for a draft pick"

Seems about right as Minny is lacking experienced top 4 dmen.

This @krufrank has zero credibility.

Others have been suggesting the wild will actively shop Tom Gilbert which flies in the face of this reasoning, furthermore while a player like Brodin is not "proven" he just wrapped up a rookie season playing a top pairing role effectively.

Gaunce gets invite to Junior development camp. Good experience for him and perhaps we get to see him at the next Junior Worlds. If he is not having a rookie of the year type season with the Canucks that is :mrgreen:

Wonder what kind of money Ference will be looking for.

Probably way more than he's worth given the success of his previous team.

Apparently Manny has meet with a group of teams in NY and has some serious interest on a new deal. Wants to try and comeback. A successful comeback would make MG look pretty foolish no?

Is it safe to say that we are looking at about a million to one odds that the players agent MG will make a bold move today?

No, we saw the way Manny was playing, even though Manny couldn't see it.

Apparently Gillis demands are through the roof on what he wants in return.
