It was an awesome moment. 

The funny thing is that the whole getting the 3rd brother thing was such a "tinfoil hat" take, BUT NOW after that interview they did I'm down with it. Quinn was trying to act like he wasn't having fomo that whole interview lol.

Jack STILL looks like some 15-16 kid wearing a jersey, that you’d see hanging in the concourse between periods.  Yet he’s a #1 overall pick who has over 100 NHL games under his belt.  Hard to believe when you see a pic like this.

i assume guadana will also not want Quinn in NJ since he didn't want Luke cause he was playing on the left side and similar type of player. So we'd have Ty, Quinn and Luke on the left side. Plus Graves. That being said, Smith played on the right side most of his career. Not sure why he was put on the left when he got to the NHL

If he were to come here I don't see it happening for years. Things could look a lot different by then. Luke could turn out to be a very different player than he is now, Ty might get flipped for another asset since they're all smaller and offensive minded, etc. Just too far out to really speculate other than it would be cool, or something.

Well it would be in minimum 4 years. We'll see what kind of contract he's signing. Obviously Vancouver might wanna try to sign him long term but he might want to go for a 4years contract bringing him up to UFA in 4 years. We should see soon enough

If we were to trade for him. Obviously Ty Smith would have to be the big piece heading to Vancouver plus something else. Obviously i understand you need to give something good to get something good but i'd hate to lose him

Would you be more open to losing Holtz/Mercer++ instead? I am not sure if Van would want to directly replace him with another Dman in the trade with NJ or look elsewhere.

Yeah it would be Smith, and probably something like Boqvist, Nolan Foote, and a 1st rounder.

Their GM did say he was trying to make their D better. So trading one of their top D and not getting one back is not achieving that for sure.

I'd totally trade Holtz for quinn. I'd hate to lose Mercer but obviously, you need to give to get and losing him would be worth it.

It's exciting cause we're FINALLY getting to the point where we're starting to have some guys that could potentially be expendable.

He looks like the picture that comes before Justin Bieber leaving the club. 

Here’s the after.

You're probably right. Not unless he pushes the issue and wants to leave or they get an insane overpayment.

Additionally, we should not be paying the price it would take to get him in a trade.

Agreed. Too expensive. We can sign him for free in four years (assuming he signs a bridge deal).

I am still under the belief that if Luke's last name was anything other than Hughes then either Eklund, Clarke or Edvinsson would be a Devil.  Still you can't be upset at the selection because Luke is still a top prospect and went around where he should have (4-8 range).  However, the pick is a little strange in that Hughes likely won't be helpful for at least 3-4 years while Fitz says he wants to compete now.  With that in mind the selection has an air of making it to keep Jack happy.

The other 1st round pick is a disaster.  They chose a guy who likely would have been there with their 2nd and probably 3rd round pick.  There has been reports that Fitz was somewhat close with his father, Cory Stillman, so there may be some nepotism/favoritism involved there.  If that is the case then I am def concerned with Tom's drafting strategy.  He has essentially turned Coleman into Nolan Foote and a 2/3rd rounder (Muk) and Zajac/Palmieri into AJ Greer, a minor leaguer, and another 2nd/3rd rounder.  Ouch.

I was bummed on the Stillman pick until I read more about him. I don't have such harsh feelings now. Def a reach but now I am not sure if it was anymore a reach than drafting Raty would have been in that spot...and Raty fell much much more.

I was more hoping Fitz would trade that pick than actually use it.  The asking price for Jake Bean was a 2nd rounder and a 29th overall is borderline 2nd round pick anyways.  I would rather see that than Stillman who seems more like a Bastian replacement more than anything.

I wouldnt mind Jake Bean but now that we picked Luke. Here's our LHD depth... Smith, Graves, Murray?, Hughes, Siegenthaler, Butcher, Bahl, Yukojevic, Okhotyuk, white and Groleau. We only need 3-4 and im all for internal competition but we kind of already potentially have 3-4 (smith, graves, hughes and bahl) that should be locks for years. with all the other ones trying to push for a job.

Of course Bean could have developped nicely and take a spot and force us to trade him or someone else for something else but at the end of the day i understand going for Stillman. I would have prefered Panili or wtv his name, the canadian RW but wtv, what do i know,, apparently he's a bit soft and we dont need more of that

You sure you don't want a RW considering our RW depth is Sharangovich, Bratt, Mercer, Clarke, Zetterlund, Thompson....

From watching the playoffs this year. One thing that Tampa and MTL did extremely well was their quick transition from the D to a forward at the blueline for a breakaway or 2-0 (hell this was basically 85% of all MTL's goals).
 
I can enjoy seeing a dude skate the puck up like everyone but in our system it results of skating all the way to the red line just to make a back pass. fvck was it ever driving me insane last season.
 
And this is really the best way to survive a game that you're not playing well or winning against a better team. Stuck in your zone for a whole period. Then BOOM the other team make one mistake or there's a broken play then BOOM you got a streaking forward on a breakaway. But you need good puck movers for that
