  1. Oh I know and the loop needs closed for all teams. Wasting picks for other teams to simply take them is a slap in the face. Nashville felt it and many others before that.
  2. One thing is certain with the Butcher and previous incidents. The NHL needs to simply close this loophole as more and more talent is coming out of college than before. Rights shouldn't be lost because they went 4 yrs of college or reach a certain age. Or at least put in a stipulation where if they get a certain sized contract that is results in loss of a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd round draft pick.
  3. Ya especially if the team isn't going anywhere he could simply reject contracts til they either trade him or he becomes a UFA possibly getting an even bigger deal down the road. I just have a hard time believing talent wants to play for us willingly.
  4. Yakupov is gonna be our Grigs 2.0.
  5. I hope we simply let Grigorenko walk. Kid has talent but we just don't see it enough. I have a feeling this year we are gonna be using a lot of new faces.
  6. With all our draft picks of college people I really hope this upcoming CBA closes that loophole that allows a player to walk.
  7. His value, his heart, his effort have all dropped. Sakic is probably now overvaluing him. GMs last year said the price was too high and again it seems too high this off-season. I personally feel Duchene loses value the more we hold on to him unless he magically goes insane this year, but it's not gonna happen.
  8. All these mock drafts have Pickard over Raanta as a goalie chosen. They do have to pick 3 goalies.
  9. My bad it was ESPN/ABC that showed this list.
  10. That's weird because TSN says Varlamov is unprotected. But the list says otherwise. Oh well don't care
  11. The reason I feel they won't take Pickard is because if they take Raanta and Grubauer then someone will need to be sent down via waivers and that wouldn't work. All 3 of those goalies have 1 way deals and enough games played to make waivers happen.
  12. Grubauer won't even come close to breaking the bank. at best he gets 3mil per. Vegas isn't going to get to the cap. They are going to spend to the floor and work from there.
  13. Fleury would need to waive his rights to go into the expansion draft. But the last ditch talk was a buyout if Fleury doesn't want to really cooperate. But Pickard isn't worth it. They would be best off getting Raanta NYR) and Grubauer (WSH) Most analysts have Grubauer at the top of the Golden Knights list.
  14. It wouldn't matter because teams are going to take either of our goalies. Raanta will be drafted from the expansion and then Fleury will get signed when they buyout his contract in Pittsburgh. Since Varly had surgery on both his hips this year I am assuming they are praying he could return to his game stealing self from when we made the playoffs. Picks is a good goalie but I don't see him as that goalie that makes the team win games they shouldn't often enough.
  15. Nathan MacKinnon: "It feels good to play on a really good team" Got a kick out of this comment.
