In Topic: 2015 Draft Thread

Yesterday, 01:51 PM

The last time anybody actually correctly predicted a major Lou move (no, trading for Steve Sullivan isn't a major move) before it happened was Potvin predicting the Kovalchuk trade. Other than that, the more leaks you see about something the less likely it is to occur.

 

he didn't predict it - he was basically the first to report it maybe a day before it was actually done.

In Topic: What NHL forward is currently worth the 6th pick

he won't trade 6 for anything but a surefire 1st liner that is locked up for minimum 3 years if it's a player. again, i think that depending on how the picks fall, i would deal 6 with columbus for 8 and 38. a 1st and 3 2nds in this draft would be pretty good.

Just depressing on so many levels.

Question is - would you trade 6 for Taylor hall or RNH? I would not.

while i don't expect either Stevens or Oates to get the gig, there is no sense naming someone even if they're front runners because you want to see who is available. while i think there is almost no chance that babcock comes here, i'm sure lou would want to make the phone call to find out. maybe he wants to see what's up with mclellan. perhaps a good coach whose team is bounced in the first round doesn't survive.

 

for all we know, lou might have been given a mandate for a succession plan over the next 3 years and a new coach and assistant GM is part of that. perhaps there is a coach/AGM pair that he's looking at.

I'm taking Salvador over Mark Fraser...but if the Devils bring back Salvador, you know Fraser is still here as insurance. 

 

neither should be here next year wearing a uniform unless it's in a lego race or handing out freebies to that game's "Lucky row"
