  1. Per Lavoie, Arizona is testing the market on Duclair. I would definitely trade a second rounder for him. Times like this, I kind of wish the Devils had signed Elias for another year. I think he had enough left in the tank that he would have been worth a decent haul at the deadline.
  2. Is Hanzal really all that good? His point totals aren't all that impressive. I really think we should end up with at least another second rounder.
  3. Was part of the Yandle deal. Had a nice start to his NHL career but got sent down to the AHL a few weeks ago. So I guess Arizona feels he just isn't that good, but Pittsburgh has nothing to lose in seeing if he can turn things around.
  4. 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.
  5. Ye of eternal hope, especially with the Dolphins.
  6. 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.
  7. Again, you don't understand analytics where everything matters except scoring goals and winning games.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Hopefully he's not like Jordan Cameron. Still nervous about letting Albert go. Can't have any retreads or fourth round picks at guard.
  14. So now the Dolphins apparently are acquiring Julius Thomas.
