    I really hope the Devils are able to get him over to America when his KHL contract expires.

    He has so many qualities that would fit well with this team.

    Everyone trying to scout this sport deals with that though. I’ve just seen some pretty out there takes from him. For example last year he didn’t even have Power or Beniers in his top 5. 

    Agreed,  but this guy isn't saying "oh he reminds me of such and such" he is saying statistically this player is on par with this player. And as far as I can tell it does not account for the quality of the team mates that the individual is playing with. 

    So Luke could go back to Michigan next year, put up the same points and regress on this model, yet have picked up harder minutes and played on what is looking like a weaker team.

    Btw it’s probably best to take Byron Bader’s takes with a grain of salt. I know a lot of the folks that really follow the draft process see him as a bit of a joke. 

    I think his work is good and it gives a nice visual , but it will always suffer from  having to  compare performance across different leagues and the level of competition at the time in that league.

    Bolded is either my new favorite auto correct or my new favorite verb for signing players. 

    Campbell says that’s his priority but 2.75 isn’t gonna come close. Fitz has to be looking at him and Husso this offseason 

    Hahaha , amazing. This phone at times just goes off the wall.

    Yeah, sorry , was probably funnier in my head. 

  5. Getting back to goalies Bill Guerin said today that they are looking to keep both Fleury and Talbot as their tandem for next year. They also donged Jesper Wallstedt to his ECL. 

    Obviously it's not a done deal, but that could be one more name off the UFA market in the summer. 

    Also ready that Toronto are trying to sort out their roster for next year and have made some intial offers to their UFA's. One of which was Jack Campbell. Rumour has it that Dubas offered him $2.75 million a year, which is a massive low ball. This could potentially push him towards the exit. However in his exit interview he has said his priority is remaining with the Leafs.

    Lane Lamberts dad is definitely gonna shut down the youth center if we don’t win the soap box derby. 

    He is 2022 draft prospect Brad Lambert's dad. So if the Islanders draft Brad  it could be Lane shutting down the youth centre.

  7. They have been really inconsistent for a while now. Their run in was messed up by all the call ups and they just didn't come into the playoffs with any form of momentum. I also don't think the layoff with the bye through the first round did them any favours. 

    Got to say from some of the younger guys Instagram posts it has looked like they are already on holiday!! Not saying players cant chill out and enjoy life, but they were in the middle of a playoff series.

    It's the "likely to be available" part that is the hangup. We'll never get the goalie I want via a trade unless its this pick plus more, plus a team being stupid enough to trade away their future #1 goalie.

    Its what I would want with that pick. It will never happen.  

    Oh yeah well if it's for things that stand no chance of happening I am sending it to Edmonton for McDavid and Draisaitl.

    I chose "trade for immediate help", but I pick that with the caveat of it having to be in a deal for our goalie of the future, should that not be Blackwood. 

    There is no way you trade this pick for any goalie that is likely going to be available. That would be the worst outcome.

  10. Quite a few draft lists have Cooley at second. 

    Seems like a player who's profile is similar to what we already have on the roster. On the small side, good skater and play maker with a good shot.

    Given he is a center as well it would seem like we don't have much of a need. But do you just take BPA.

    Does the kid even speak English? If not, at least Utica has Brylin and Okhotiuk to help him out. 

    Yeah Fitz said there is a language barrier to contend with. One of the reason they wanted him over ASAP was to start working on that before the start of next season.

    Muk didn’t play but I suppose it would’ve been premature to throw him right into a playoff lineup seeing as though he was just assigned.

    Fitz said in the end of season interview that initially he would just be watching and depending on how the comets got on might see a game. I read that as "if they get through to a best of 7 we might see him in a game or two".

    This series is not one to chuck him into.

    i have a feeling we'll see the Hischier Makar scenario again in this case. I don't think Wright will be the best player in this draft in a few years. 

    A lot of people aren't sure he is the best player in the draft now. The consensus seems to be he is the safest pick.
