  1. You see Nolan Patrick starting to fall in a few peoples prospect rankings, some of which have him as low as five. I know nothing about prospects other than what I read, but it seems that a team could find themselves win a steal getting a player who was the consensus number 1 pick at five or six. Although I think the last time that happened was when Larsson and Courturier were the preseason consensus one and two, and neither has really blown the doors off in the NHL, so who knows.
  2. Ye of eternal hope, especially with the Dolphins.
  3. McLeod and Bastian look to be very average NHLers if they ever get there. Rykov may never leave the KHL. Joey Anderson has been impressive, but will almost certainly end up taking the Vesey route. Probably will end up on the Rangers.
  4. Again, you don't understand analytics where everything matters except scoring goals and winning games.
  5. Bullsh!t. They've played like crap. Raanta hasn't had to do sh!t. I'm predicting a 6-0 loss. They should forfeit the rest of the season. This team is an utter embarrassment. There's a reason Hall has never played for a winner. Shero and company will probably fvck up the draft like they did last years. And Shattenkirk will sign with the Rags. Oh well, we had a good run for all those years. I suspect the Devils will be irrelevant for the next thirty or forty years.
  6. Oshie is not really a fit, and seems poised to see a decline in his production wherever he ends up when he doesn't have the teammates that he has in Washington. No thanks for how much you'd have to overpay. Would much rather overpay for Shattenkirk. If we miss out, so be it.
  7. As someone who roots against the Jets, I say by all mean waste a draft pick on a kicker, even a seventh rounder. It almost never works out in the long run, the only exception I can think of being Janakowski. Basically a retread free agent kicker is more likely to be better than someone you draft.
  8. Is it inconceivable that someone like Nash waives his NMC for the expansion draft? One, it would be just another one of the seemingly endless set of horseshoes the Rangers seem to find in being able to dump salary when they want to. Second, if the Rangers make an early playoff exit and Nash stinks it up for the rest of the year, he may want to try his luck on another team where he will likely be on the first line and first powerplay unit in the last year of his deal so that he avoids what happened to Eric Staal in free agency last year, meaning, have a terrible contract year, sign for a relatively small amount of money and then show that you still have a lot of hockey left to play. That said, I might give up on watching hockey altogether if Girardi waives his NMC, which would be bad enough, if Vegas actually selects him, which would make me vomit, and then the Rangers sign Shattenkirk, which would lead me to jump out the window.
  9. Even with the extension, I wouldn't make a deal with St. Louis that involves Severson. Shattenkirk is the better defenseman, but it doesn't really advance the ball to give up one defenseman for another, unless we're talking about someone as good and young as Karlsson, which obviously isn't happening. At most, I would trade a third for his negotiating rights, which maybe, maybe becomes a second if he signs an extension before the start of free agency, but that's pressing it. If Shero really wants him, he can outbid virtually any other team that's a credible landing spot (meaning, I don't think he wants to play for Arizona or Carolina). A defense of Greene, Severson, Shattenkirk, Santini would look pretty good.
  10. Hopefully he's not like Jordan Cameron. Still nervous about letting Albert go. Can't have any retreads or fourth round picks at guard.
  11. So now the Dolphins apparently are acquiring Julius Thomas.
  12. According to Mando, Thomas wouldn't be part of the deal, rather it'd be a late round pick, probably a seventh. Maybe the thinking is that Thomas will get cut anyway, and the Dolphins can sign him for a lot less. Or they're not that interested in him. Still don't love the idea of cutting or trading Albert. Although,we're all just whistling dixie since you can just put the Patriots in the Super Bowl and not bother with the regular season or AFC playoffs.
  13. They don't have much to sell that's worth anything, plus I imagine it gets complicated by the number of players you have to have on the roster for the expansion draft. Then there's that whole weird thing with offering up Parenteau to certain teams before he can be traded. That said, if Shero can somehow do the Jedi mind trick and trade Lovejoy for a second rounder.... sounds kind of crazy, but getting a third round pick for Gelinas looks even crazier.
  14. Don't know what I think of that.
