    2017-2018 Prospects Thread

    Was really impressed with Zetterlund during Sweden's games, kid seems like an athletic freak and the way he play reminds me a ton of Patric Hornqvist, we might not have as many kids in the WJC this year but I think the ones we do are going to be real good ones. We honestly have the potential of having three captains at the World Juniors this year in Talvitie, Zetterlund, and Smith. The latter two wore C's for their teams at the Showcase last week, Smith has worn the C for Canada at the U18's.

    I'd have to disagree with that, Trouba I'd say is at least a very solid #2 on most teams. I'd say my ideal number for him would be $6.5M but I wouldn't blink an eye if the number was $7M

    Devils sign F Yegor Sharangovich

    I really liked that pick in the 5th Round this year, Sharangovich was pretty good as Belarus' 1st line center at the World Juniors so I'm happy we'll get to see him in Bing this year, see more of what he can bring on North American ice.

    The Coyotes are literally the NHL's garbage disposal

    I can agree with that sentiment, really though I view McDavid-Crosby-Malkin as the best 3 centers in the NHL, so the only way I'd trade Hall is for a top 3 center is basically all I'm saying. Sid is about 5 years older, but I will say he is an entirely different animal, he can take even the biggest scrubs and turn them into 50-60 point producers on his line. See: Armstrong, Colby; Sheary, Conor; Kunitz, Chris

    Others have already hit on this note, but no. Hallsy is younger, healthier, and is coming off his 1st career Hart trophy, certainly wouldn't trade him for Karlsson. The list of players I'd trade Hall for is very short, it's something like: McDavid, Crosby, Malkin, and that's kind of it. Then there's players where I think it would be a fair swap, like Matthews or Kucherov, but I wouldn't be trading Hall for a fair swap, we already have arguably the best LW in the National Hockey League.

    Can't find the original tweet, but I remember someone saying something along the lines of, "I can't wait for Karlsson to tweet a picture of himself sleeping in Golden Knights sheets from when he was a kid."

    Well in respect to Maroon wanting to play for his hometown Blues and wanting to be able to spend more time with his son, then Ray really couldn't match what going to St. Louis offered him. I do feel like Ray will make some sort of trade before the summer is out though, even if it is something smaller along the lines of Brock Nelson.

    Gotta respect that, I remember an interview when he was on the Oilers when he got emotional over the fact his son got to see him score a goal live. Seems like a really good and genuine guy, wish him luck with the Blues.

    Also, I know I've posted this before, but this segment from an episode of Steve Dangle is probably my favorite thing on any hockey podcast ever, and is about the BS Twitter rumor accounts

    Jeremy Rutherford tweeted about Maroon on a 1-year deal 6 hours ago, "NHL Confidant" is some of the biggest shlock out there in the hockey Twitter universe, he's one of those guys who's 25% aggregator and 75% just making sh!t up, any anonymous "rumor" account is immediately on a credibility blacklist.

    This is literally the first offseason people are complaining about this, compared to other sports the NHL has the best system. Lower taxes are just those team's lure, just like the Original 6 has that lure, LA has the big market lure, different teams have different appeals and that's just one that the non-traditional markets have. Different guys want different things in free agency, not every guy is chasing pure money so the attraction of less taxes has less weight on certain multi-millionaires.

    I'm actually baffled by how bad this Islanders team is going to be, just my goodness. Fine, they lost Tavares, but instead of handing the keys to some youngsters like Bellows and Ho-Sang, they're instead tossing out 1-way contracts to 4th liners like they're Halloween candy so they can effectively logjam all their prospects for next season. Like look at this sh!t Beauvillier - Barzal - Eberle Lee - Nelson (RFA) - Bailey Ladd - Filppula - Komarov Martin - Cizikas - Clutterbuck Johnston, Kuhnhackl, Kovar Leddy - Boychuk Hickey - Pulock Pelech - Aho/Toews Mayfield Lehner Greiss I count 14 forwards with either secured NHL spots (Barzal, Beau) or 1-way NHL contracts before signing Nelson. Maybe we can grab Nelson from the Islanders on the cheap? There was some rumors last season we inquired on him near the deadline so Shero and company might already have some interest.
