Yeah it is a shame.  He had a strong first season with sheltered minutes but got exposed when he took John Moore's spot the following season and played against stronger competition.

Outside of Kevin Hayes, how many other of these college holdouts actually do well past their first NHL season?

Adam Fox

Alex Kerfoot

I have a soft spot for Butcher since he choose to sign here in a time no one else would. I hope he figures it out and gets back to that promising play he had when he first got here. He never would have gotten to play at this point.

I went grocery shopping on my way home from base and OF COURSE HE SIGNED DURING THAT TIME

AND BUTCHER TRADED?!

we're like $853,334 away from reaching the floor.

We MAY reach it with Sharangovich and Kuokkanen's contracts........ maybe.........

And when we acquire Tarasenko, of course

Sucks to see how far Will fell, I do feel bad because he CHOSE us and that's a total rarity. Hopefully taking his hit off the cap means Fitzy isn't done adding a few parts here and there. Like @MB3 said before, we may need to trade for forward depth. Unfortunately that's going to cost us a young player.

I thought it was pretty funny. The NJ media team have been on form recently.

I totally forgot that we were linked to Kulikov earlier today.  I wonder how that ends up now.  If so, we have a much better looking D-corps heading into this coming season.  Just need another decent forward and we can go from there.

Fox is the other one.

Kerfoot had about half the amount of points last year as he did in his rookie year.

Blake Wheeler and Justin Schultz are 2 others that aren't as recent.

I don’t disagree, but after the first season, he was basically roster filler. I respect that he wanted to come here, but not to the point where I could justify keeping him.

So we'd need some bottom 6 help OR some top 6 dropping Bratt to the 3rd line

 

Kuokkanen - Hughes - Sharangovich

Zacha - Hischier - Bratt

Wood -  ??? - Johnsson

Foote - McLeod - ???

Holtz - Mercer - Clarke

 

Graves - Hamilton

Smith - Severson

Siegenthaler - Subban

Bahl - Walsh

 

Blackwood

Bernier

I don’t know the answer, but my favorite is still Vesey holding out on Buffalo, signing with the Rangers, and then getting traded to Buffalo.
