Not to brag or anything but if you scroll through the talk page you can see me saying Detroit will reach for a deffensman. I guess I was right again.

Anyway what do you guys think of the pick that's a huge reach.

Agree2 Disagree3

22 Jun 2019 03:22:26
Stevie Y has reached in round 1 before.

22 Jun 2019 04:20:57
I don't think it's a huge reach. He likely would have been picked in the first round. It's just a question of where.

I was originally sceltical of the pick but after learning more about him, I would be happy if he turned into a Top 4 Dman for us.

Having a future Top 4 D-core like this could be nice:

McIssac- Seider

Solid LH-RH pairings. I feel more confident in our Defense than before.

22 Jun 2019 05:28:08
It wasn't really a reach he's a very solid prospect that was getting more recognition every week. Marc bergevin took a trip to Germany a couple weeks back to get a closer look at him.

22 Jun 2019 12:54:26
At 6 it was a reach tho they probably could’ve picked him up at around 15th.

22 Jun 2019 16:04:58
They might have got him at 10th I don't think he would have been around after that. Oilers would have had a tough choice between him and broberg.

22 Jun 2019 17:57:53
Holland was very high on Seider from what I heard which is why Yzerman couldn’t trade down too far.

Overall I am much happier today than my surprise yesterday. If you see him play and his size, he would be very valuable to a D-core.

22 Jun 2019 21:47:25
Hopefully it pans out for Detroit I personally really don’t like their roster they posses no current elite talent ( besides Larkin to a certain extent) . Classiest organization in the game I hope they land Lafranier next year them or Ottawa would also like to see the Canadian teams bring in more top talent.

24 Jun 2019 02:46:46
No matter who drafts Lafrenière he will hold out and ask to get traded to montreal.

21 Jun 2019 23:56:52
Kyle Dubas And David Pollie talking Trade. I hope to god it dosent involve Marner and Subban. I could see Nashville taking Horton or Marleau IF HE WAIVES but definitely not Zaitsev their cap isn't that bad for this upcoming season but need to sign Josi.

Agree0 Disagree4

22 Jun 2019 10:04:09
Nashville has 6m in cap space and they need to sign like 3+ more of their RFAs/ UFAs. But yeah, I'm sure they (as a contender) are incredibly interested in taking a cap dump like Horton or Marleau to screw their cap this year.

22 Jun 2019 12:59:23
if/ when they dump Subban that’ll leave them with 15 minus the players they take back.

21 Jun 2019 17:22:55
Hypothetically if the oilers decided they wanted to trade McDavid, what do you think the could get?

For example: Ekblad and Huberdeau, or Barrie and rantanen. Personally I wouldn't do either of those if I was Florida or Colorado.

What do you think he could get?

(You could include picks and prospects too)

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Jun 2019 17:50:51
That is really tough to answer. I believe the Oilers would ask for far more than is reasonable to consider from any team. I think the Oilers would ask for the top 2 players from whatever team and likely a 1st round pick as well, depending on who the top 2 players are.

For your two examples, I can't see the Oilers considering those deals at all.

I'm not saying McDavid is worth that necessarily, but that is what the Oilers would want.

21 Jun 2019 19:00:39
If he completely heals from his leg injury he could get a great return from any teams as he is the best player in the league. However any team trading for him would have to fill the holes the players that went to the Oilers left so McD might be on a team that is going to be in a rebuild situation. This would be great for the Oilers but bad for McD.

22 Jun 2019 03:03:23
Less then what the Lakers payed for Davis




Cale Makar, Tyson Jost, 4th overall and 2020 1st

This would mean the oilers re enter rebuild mode and look to move all vets and Nuge/ Larsson they probably keep Drais.

22 Jun 2019 03:06:43
It's stupid to waste time and talk about this imo. It will never happen. For it to even be considered it would need to be a massive and i mean MASSIVE overpayment. McDavid is Edmonton's boy. He sells tickets and brings in huge amounts of revenue. It's not just about being a good hockey players. The kid sells seats.

22 Jun 2019 10:04:57
Are you nuts? Barrie is a pending UFA next summer, COL would personally walk Rantanen and Barrie to Edmonton if that got them McDavid. EDM doesn't even consider either proposal.

21 Jun 2019 03:41:28
The Vancouver Canucks are looking into hiring Peter Chiarelli in a management role under GM Jim Benning.

Name a better duo than Chiarelli and Benning i'll wait

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Jun 2019 04:30:38
Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse.

21 Jun 2019 12:31:31
I think I’d rather have Kanye West and Kim Kardashian running my team.

20 Jun 2019 04:11:05
Anyone want to take a guess on the biggest riser for next season?

I’d easily put my money in the Rangers. If they buyout Staal/ Smith they’d have enoigh money to sign a toptier free agent. I think they’re going to be a major threat down the line.

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Jun 2019 13:48:54
Rangers will be a bottom 5 team imo. The Panthers, Devils, Sabres And Flyers will all be better and those are just 3 teams in the East that should make playoffs that didn’t last year. Rangers will be better then Ottawa and Detroit next year but that’s it in the east.


For fallers I have: Islanders, Carolina and Columbus In the east

For risers I have Florida, Buffalo and Philadelphia with New Jersey just missing playoffs. IMO the last wildcard spot will be a battle between Buffalo and Montreal.


For fallers I have Vegas

For risers I have Vancouver.

20 Jun 2019 14:35:41
At the risk of getting burned for like the 4th year in a row, I’d pick the Panthers (especially if they make some helpful splashes in free agency) .

20 Jun 2019 19:16:52
Sabres. I think they’re 2-3 solid pieces away from being an excellent team.

20 Jun 2019 23:57:13
VB Rangers have added Trouba Fox Anderson Kakko and Kravtsov over last year already and are rumoured to be taking a run at guys like Panarin in free agency. Far from a guarantee but they look poised to take a big step forward this year or next.

21 Jun 2019 00:28:14
I agree with NYR. Even if they don't sign Panarin or another good FA.
They're doing the rebuilding thing right and I think it'll start to pay off for them this season. Kakko doesn't hurt either.

21 Jun 2019 03:45:50
Yah I mean they’re definitely better but New Jersey is also getting better especially considering the Hart trophy winner in 2018 only played 37 games. Florida is a team that should be a cup contender with Tampa, Boston, leafs etc when they get Bob and Paniran same with Philadelphia imo. Buffalo has just been gradually improving and Next year I think Dahlin will really breakout showing he’s a top 5 dman in the game. ( maybe it’s my bias because I have him on my fantasy team but I think he’ll score about 70 points.

21 Jun 2019 07:00:59
If FLA gets Bob and Panarin, they def make the playoffs. Their D is still iffy, tho. I like PHI as well, but no way they're a cup contender (yet), imo. They have goalie trouble, too.
And to answer your question: Yes, it is your bias.

22 Jun 2019 02:33:23
Well Yup shares the same opinion so I’m to sure. Carter Hart is also a stud he’ll be the best goalie In the game. He’s Canada’s future in net. I’d Trade Freddy Andersson for him.

19 Jun 2019 17:43:18
Corey Perry is being bought our by the Ducks!

Thoughts on where he will sign next and How much?

I knew his contract was getting worse, just surprised it was this bad that they couldn't wait 2 years.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2019 17:49:26
If he plays it won’t be for the money. Maybe a 1 year 1 million deal in Tampa or Winnipeg.

19 Jun 2019 19:24:01

19 Jun 2019 20:13:25
@vb, Perry won't sign for one million dollars. He will get something around 4 million.

19 Jun 2019 21:43:51
Agreed TyBa4. Maybe even gets someone to overpay and get a Marleau contract.

20 Jun 2019 02:10:33
I agree with vb, one year deal on the cheap but I see it being with the Oilers for some reason.

20 Jun 2019 16:19:34
I bet Perry goes to Pittsburgh. Had that feeling for a few days now.

This isn't a trade proposal but this is just a thread I'm creating to compare the value of NHL players to NBA players last week a top 3 players in the NBA and best of his position was traded to the Lakers for 3 young roster players and 3 1st round picks. Could that package land a top 3 player in the NHL? Anthony Davis is 26 but the draft age is much older in the NBA so his age is considered young by NBA standards.

Edmonton: Connor McDavid

New York Islanders: Noah Dobson, Oliver Wahlstrom, Kiefer Bellows, 1st pick 2019, 1st pick 2020 and 1st pick 2021.


Colorado: Cale Makar, Tyson Jost, Sam Girard, 4th overall, 1st 2020 and 1st 2021

Personally if I'm Edmonton or any other team I'd accept I'd trade Mathews in a heartbeat for those. Is Anthony Davis comparable in Value to McDavid?

Agree0 Disagree5

19 Jun 2019 14:16:37
the leagues and systems are not comparable.
You need like 3 elite pieces in basketball and you're competing for the title. In the NHL you need way more depth and obviously way more players are playing in general.
Therefore trades cannot be compared like that.

20 Jun 2019 02:18:30
I don’t believe the firsts can be in consecutive years in either sport I’m pretty sure it’s alternating years in the Davis trade with options to swap 1sts in between. NBA draft isn’t much older, a lot, at least top guys, are one and done college players and 1 year older than most top NHL draft prospects. Davis has played 7 seasons. One top player in basketball has a bigger impact on a team than any hockey player ever has. A young roster player in NBA doesn’t mean they’re a current or future stud, if you don’t make the NBA roster within like a year of the draft you just never will, it’s completely different. Regardless, top NBA players will have more value because they have a larger impact when on the court and will play all but 2 minutes of a game.

20 Jun 2019 13:51:06
I agree JBS besides a goalie has a bigger impact in a game a much bigger actually then a basketball star.

19 Jun 2019 04:15:42
Like I said Hayes will sign for Seven Million plus. Kind of a genius when it comes to the NHL I must say.

Also Montreal will sign Jake Gardiner to Seven Million per season on a 7 year contract. He will be very good with Weber.

Anton Stralman will sign with the leafs if he doesn't resign.

Paniran And Bob will both sign matching 7 year 63 million dollar contracts in Florida

Duchene is a wildcard.

Pavelski And Thornton resign.

Nyquist goes to the Rangers

Myers resigns.

These are the VB predictions

Agree0 Disagree3

19 Jun 2019 05:03:05
It's not good for the league when a guy like Kevin Hayes gets 7 million for 7 years.

19 Jun 2019 05:06:57
I thought you were a lunatic for the Hayes prediction. To be fair I couldn’t see him signing for less than 6 but I’d say he did very well.

19 Jun 2019 05:49:00
So it looks like players will get at least 2 mil per year over what they are actually worth from now on lol. what a joke boy I sure hope the habs don't dabble in the free agent market this year.

19 Jun 2019 12:19:55
I think CAR will sign Nyqvist.
I’m basing this on nothing. Just a hunch.

19 Jun 2019 13:05:50
@Ebsoultely once the E. Kane contract signed it created a chain reaction of contract rapidly getting higher and higher while even last season that Hayes contract would seem putrid and it still is inflation will quickly make it look better by 2028 it is projected the cap will rise over 100 million.

@chirp you might be right.

19 Jun 2019 17:44:21
I personally see Nyquist going to Nashville if they have the room. He plays a two-way, playmaking style game that would help them.

20 Jun 2019 02:19:05
Reason i don’t think Rangers sign Nyquist is they are reportedly already trying to move forwards with guys like Anderson Kakko and Kravstov coming in.

20 Jun 2019 23:08:01
I would honestly be shocked if Montreal paid a penny over 6mil for gardiner. I actually don't see them paying even that much tbh if they even have an interest in him at all.

19 Jun 2019 02:35:34
Colorado needs to add some help behind the big three. What about signing

Joe Pavelski,
San Jose can't afford to keep him.

Artemi Panarin,
He's not staying in Columbus

Then an offer sheet to
Kaspiri Kapanen.

What's the likelyhood Joe Sakic could pull this off?

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2019 06:33:04
Kapanen seems more likely then the other 2
