He showed some improvement at the end of the season. I'm not ready to write him off yet, think he could end up a solid middle 6 forward. Like the deal because if he does you have him cheap a couple years, if he doesn't it won't cost much to dump him
That seems like a fucking steal
How do we trade an unrestricted FA? Sign and trade?
No, FA hasn't opened up yet so it gives the team a chance to exclusively negotiate with them
Great work today, Stevie. That's a baller move. Also takes us out of the Wallstedt dilemma.
Nice trade. Signed for two years now. He could be the goalie of the future. It’s definitely worth the 3rd round pick
It’s a nice situation. Now you see if he can handle more games than he was allowed in Carolina. I’d guess he and Greiss are on a pretty even split next year.
Two years before UFA to work something out longer term if he hits.
Two great deals today.
This was a no brainer deal. If the kid sucks, so what? The biggest issue is if he does well, his new deal walks him to UFA. Even if that happens,‘I trust Steve to get the situation figured out for us.
A goalie in the first round is still on the table as well, but probably not at six. Moving up to the teens with our second first still seems possible though.
This is the exact opposite of the Leddy deal.
Fuck you guys and your fleecing of our front office.
The 3rd was the one we got for Tatar, so our return for Tatar is officially: Joe Veleno, Robert Mastrosimone, and Alex Nedelijkovic
Ned’s from northern Ohio and played 4 years of juniors in Michigan so that should help factor in re-signing him.
I'm not sure this necessarily precludes us from drafting a goalie. 7 year age difference between Ned and Wallstedt. Most teams run 2 goalies and we don't have any real prospects in our system. With him also being a ufa in 2 years, any goalie we take will take that long to develop
I'd guess we are less likely to now, but I wouldn't completely write it off
Yzerman apparently said in his presser today the plan is for Leddy to pair with Hronek. So that's your first pairing. Wonder if we make a run at another veteran LD to play with Seider, someone like Martinez
Would be a nice fit. From Michigan as well
I didn’t catch the part about Leddy playing with Hronek but Yzerman definitely said they will be looking for a LHD…Marc Staal being an option
He works hard not to say much but a LHD is gonna happen per his comments
Yep. We are going to add a RH forward as well, though that could easily be any of our UFA.
Staal was awful early in season but actually settled in ok by the end I thought. That said I'd prefer other options over him
Watching a lot of stuff on Eklund tonight, think he may be my favorite at the moment but think good chance he will be gone by our pick.
Let’s all be happy we aren’t Flyers fans. What in the world are they doing this week?
Legit one of the worst trades I’ve seen in years
Holtby contract + 9th for a 3rd or Bertuzzi
Let's make that happen.
Too late. Arizona has that 9th now
I just caught up on all the news. What a shitty trade! haha.
I will talk myself into any pick except for a goalie at 6. Please don't take a goalie.
Please take a goalie.
I just want a C or D. No more wings.
After the Seider pick I trust their judgment better than mine. I like a couple guys, no one I absolutely hate. We'll see how it shakes out
I think we go off the board with Svechkov
I think you are over selling this. If they think the best player is a winger it's not like we couldn't use another one
I’ll go with Clarke.
I know. But we really need a C and I like Ds.
That's what she said!
Are there any future #1 C in this draft? I'm not sure. We have a few guys who can be middle 6 guys already. Dont think we can solve our #1 C issue tonight
Do think we can find some 2nd line wingers with 1st line potential possibly which we could use
Looks like team USA is at Corsi’s lol
I'll go Eklund
My final guess
I wouldn’t be stunned if we took Edvinsson in this scenario, but I just have this feeling about Svechkov.
we will get him at 23
Nah I think he goes top 12 for sure.
% confidence we pick at 6 and 23?
6 - 100%
23 - 75%
Did UM win the natty last year? If not, why not?
We were eliminated by Covid, which shocked me because our Rivals mods said Covid wasn’t real.
they had to forfeit their game in the tourney. They still were not even a top 10 team though. Pretty pathetic with 3 top 8 picks.
