We will not be making any splashes or signing any big names so let's get that fantasy out of our heads. There is 0% chance we land Hamilton.

We'll get some good past their prime guys

I’m beginning to think they don’t have a plan…..

if they want to trade some, why they didnt draft Vorachek and trade him with retain. I`m strongly believe they could add a lot for something like that.

Totally. Francis has done a lousy job so far, in all honesty.

Exactly draft Tarashenko and flip him or something. A 4th round pick likely never sees the NHL.

I also thought Vegas did a lousy job when they drafted and they turned out alright... but this time i just can't really see the plan so far if its not tanking

Vegas made some side deals that helped too, particularly the one for William Karlsson. No side action for Seattle. GM’s learned their lesson.

Voracek at 8.3 mil? Ken Holland might do that.  They've been trying to un load his behind.

retain his salary and you will have 65+ points player for 5-6 mil for three years. This is not an option for the Devils, but for a team that wants to take the cup - a great option.

I mean we are currently $10m below the salary floor. 

you think we’ll just go into the season with an illegal roster? or are you being needlessly pessimistic*

*two nights before the NHL draft and weeks away from the official start of free agency?

currently legitimately lol’ing about the Rangers signing of Goodrow. 15 team no trade clause and ~$4m/year for 6 years for a bottom-6 player who just had the only good professional season of his life (playing on the best team in the past several decades)? 

that’s the type of deal that is so, so, so horribly bad. it’s a FLAT CAP and they are going to need to sign their big boys sooner than later. I watched a ton of Lightning games this year because I’ve been growing as a fan of them living so close to Tampa. This would be like the Devils giving Stephen Noesen a 6 year contract with an NTC after his solid year. 

Goodrow is a tough, hardworking 3rd/4th line grinder who will be 29 next season. 

SIX years. 

Holy fvcking sh!t lol

If he gets that deal, what’s Blake Coleman worth? 7 million a year? LOL rangers.

Blake Coleman does everything Goodrow does, but can also score, substitute top-6 minutes when there’s an injury, and sleeps with a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. 

If i’m his agent I point to the Goodrow contract and I say “that times two.”

I feel like this entire process was very underwhelming.  Leaks aside, I feel like Francis didn't really.. take advantage of the situation.

Guess Vegas absolutely jobbing lots of teams last time left folks more cautious this time around

I don't get the sentiment that we need to get rid of Subban like the dude has the plague. He hasn't been spectacular but I don't see why some people are in such a rush either. 

Because he hasn't been spectacular. Because he is a bottom 3 and there are plenty out there that are better D players.

But getting rid of him doesn’t mean we get any of those players, and as “bottom 3” as he is, he’s top 3 on our roster as it’s currently situated.

True he is probably be a top 3 on our defensive rooster. We must get a much better defense if we have any chance of protecting our goalies and making the, just making, playoffs for quite a while. My goal, at least make the playoffs. Appreciate your comment.
