Avs pick is around the corner. I wonder what they'll do? Likely a defenseman. I also wonder if they'll trade someone for a pick today.

Chicago might trade down to pick up more picks. Bowman said he wants more picks.

Feaster is exactly like McD, he has his own evaluation and it is pretty consistently wrong. He even said he loved the value and had the kid ranked in the top 10.

Should be an exciting year. Couple things and being forthright, i'm not as up to date on the NHL as some of you guys... when does the new conference realignment take place? Any Avs fans care to predict what the lines will look like next year? Tough I know with FA and trades coming, but maybe something tentative based off adding McKinnon.

Roy said he envisions MacKinnon being on the third line. Speculation is that Tanguay was added to be put alongside MacKinnon.

PIT moved up to 44 to get Jarry the goaltender prospect.

Wow, so Holland made a great deal with San Jose to pick up a 2nd round pick while dropping down 2 spots in the 1st and still getting the guy he wants - just to set the record straight by picking up Todd Bertuzzi's multihandicapped nephew with that 2nd round pick, a guy who can't skate, score, fight, check, take faceoffs, look like a human being - I think the best thing I can say about him currently is that at least he hasn't snapped anyone's spine.

The Letang extension was premature......there is some haggling re the limited NMC going on. Its not done.

Letang wanted a promise that he would not be moved this upcoming year before the limited NMC kicks in next year when the deal kicks in...and they said no. Obviously he is worried about signing the thing....and Shero sentencing him to Edmonton the next day.

ive never understood the whole kick in on the nmc or ntc, why wait? as a player if you think you desereve one get it day one or you end up being traded before it kicks in and winning a stanley cup.

I can't tell if I'm upset about Andrej Sekera, or glad. JR swore that he was going to go out and get a guy who could play solid top for minutes and vastly improve our defense, but all he did was get another struggling Defensemen, that is constantly battling injury, that he sees as a project. Essentially Andrej Sekera is cheap, thus JR is happy, and we continue to field a miserable defense. McBain was next to worthless, so I'm not sad to see him go, but a second was steep.


Love the Lindholm pick. More to come.

That's the thing. He is under contract one more year and that contract doesn't have any kind of NMC. There isn't a ton of trust between the two sides so he is thinking they might just want to sign and trade him to drive up the return on a trade.

I think this will get resolved by adding the same limited NMC to his last year as is in the next contract. That way the Pens could still sign and trade if that is their true intention but at the same time Letang could ensure he isn't traded to a hellhole since he can choose 15 teams he cant be moved to.

he basically already did when he told TSN he thought the divorce was over and he was likely gone.
he couldn't even talk after the trade was announced.

As a practical matter he has no choice but to ultimately play.

Course....before that occurs he could turn it into a ****storm with a summer of back and forth sniping, with Torts calling him a puss a few times too as the cherry on top.

But eventually he has to play .....the owner isn't gonna buy him out and no one will trade for him. He isn't going to sacrifice game checks.

that and it's against Roberto's personality. but i could see him snapping if Torts does his normal sniping at players BS.

This McKinnon kid they drafted, 17 years old and 6' tall and 185lbs. Isn't that almost the exact same height and weight as one Joe Sakic when he played?

it's close. Joe played at 195. i think he'll be closer to the 6-0 210 Forsberg played at than Sakic in the end.
with his game he'll need to get bigger and stronger. he's fast as hell and should eventually be a 40-50 goal scorer.

no, he's only played for the Islanders,Panthers and Canucks.
he's won just about every individual and international prize you can win except the Stanley Cup.

Nikolai Khabibulin won the cup with Tampa Bay.
