Coburn signed a two year deal with Tampa and Justin Braun went to Philly from San Jose.

Who does everyone think is going #1 in the draft?

100% Hughes 1st and Kakko 2nd. 

 

Also! Change the title to '19-20 NHL Season'! 

 

Really hoping the Leafs start making some moves (apparently Zaitsev has value?)... and really hoping they get the Marner contract under 9.5. After that? I'd consider letting people offersheet him and taking the four 1sts and the cap-space. But after all these huge contracts get signed, people are gonna change their tune about Nylander's deal.

We'll take Marner if you guys wanna deal him. It'll mean that I can stay a Penguins fan once Sidney retires if I can get a player on the team to cheer for.

I like the Coburn deal for us. 1.5 for a steady presence in the blue line and a leader in the locker room.

 

Some people in Tampa are freaking out because he was resigned before Point, but they dont realize that in order to sign Point, we need to shed Callahan and possibly Giradi or JT Miller before we can even come close to giving Point what he is going to want

So the top two picks were no surprise but there were a few surprises so far in the first round. The biggest? Pittsburgh actually picked!

Spencer Knight going to Florida at what, pick 10? That's a huge shocker. Great goalie, but if there was ever a position in hockey where you can't really count on high picks being cornerstone players, it's goalie.

I figured he would be taken in the first round still, but I thought he might be taken after 20.

Looks like this is going to be a crazy summer for moves. Marleau to Carolina and PK Subban to The Devils.

Predators clear up some cap space and secure two second round picks and a couple of young defensemen in exchange for Subban. Not a bad deal for them, considering his drop off in production.

The Leafs paid Carolina to take Marleau. They received a 6th Round Pick next year from the Hurricanes in exchange for Marleau at full salary, a 7th Rounder next year and a 1st Round Pick next year (unless the Leafs have a top 10 pick, in which case the 1st is deferred to 2021). If Dubas doesn't get his RFA's all locked up after this move, it's going to look really bad, as he gave away a first rounder to get Marleau's contract off the books.

The Canucks also acquired JT Miller this morning from the Lightning in exchange for Marek Mazanec, a 3rd Rounder this year, and a conditional 1st Round Pick that is tentatively next season's. I would imagine it also has Top 10 pick protection or something, but the details weren't fully there yet. Mazanec has only ever played NHL games for the Predators and has an .895 save percentage through 31 career games. He's still young though, but he's headed to Tampa's system, where he probably won't emerge as a full time NHLer based on their depth chart.

The PK Trade? Win win. Devils get really good, really fast (They just need a goalie), and Nashville frees up a lot of space to pick up Duchene and to re-sign Ellis.

The Leafs trade? Ehh... I don't like it, but it was needed. Really needed to get him off the books. And it's come out that we will be re-signing Kappy and Johnsson for 3-4 years at Patty's cap hit. As long as Marner comes in at under 10, I'm happy. 9.5 for 3, 4, or 6-8 years. 

The Canucks trade? What the hell are they doing. They should not be giving up first round picks. They aren't that good yet.

I feel like there are a lot of teams in the Pacific Division that believe they aren't as far away from contending as the numbers would show. There's been a lot of chatter from those fans about how the Flames weren't as good as the numbers would indicate, but I think they're fooling themselves... and Vancouver is one of those teams. Very good young players, but I think they're putting the cart before the horse here and moving a first rounder was a poor choice. Miller is a very good player though, so if they do break through and it gives them a post-season berth, then it will have worked out.

Calgary has needs, for sure, and one of those big needs is proven playoff performers, but you have to play 82 games to get to the playoffs, and Calgary didn't fluke into their regular season record.

It looks like Michael Frolik and TJ Brodie are on their way out, but I believe that Treliving is holding onto both until he exhausts his options on James Neal. Personally, I feel like Neal will have a bounce-back year wherever he plays, but he isn't worth the cap hit he accounts for, and the Flames need the cap space, so Frolik or Brodie (possibly even Hamonic based on reports) could be packaged with Neal to a team with good cap space, to make it more worth their while to take on the full brunt of Neal's contract.

Tre's also been kicking tires on goalies, because once we re-sign David Rittich, he's the only NHL guy under contract. Mike Smith isn't coming back, and that's best for both sides. So it's possible, again, that Frolik, Brodie and possibly Hamonic are going to be dangled there.

If there's a way to make it happen, I think Ottawa is a good landing spot for Neal... but there's also Philly, Colorado, Columbus, New Jersey and Winnipeg who were sitting under the salary floor as of this morning. Realistically, all of those teams could be a good place for Neal to try and rebound.

Cam Talbot has been linked to the Flames in rumors of late, but Philadelphia brought him in specifically to play with Carter Hart, so it's a tough one to envision happening, but he is a UFA, so he controls his destiny.

Even if he was interested, a Bobrovsky signing in Calgary would essentially mean that Frolik, Brodie and Neal would all HAVE to be dealt. Moving anyone else out to make that signing would be a bad move, unless it's Hamonic. Not that I want him out of Calgary, because he's awesome, sticking up for his teammates, playing a hard game and on a decent contract... but steadier goaltending would counter-balance the loss of someone of his stature, especially as there are 8 NHL ready defensemen in Calgary under contract currently, and Oscar Fantenberg likely to re-sign, making that number 9.

Varlamov is a UFA in Colorado, and despite his decent numbers last year, lost the gig to Grubauer. If he is willing to sign a cheaper deal for a year or two, he'd be a good guy to have split games with Rittich, but again, it would depend on what kind of dollars and term he's looking for. I don't think it's worth bringing anyone in on a long-term deal unless they are considerably better than Rittich. The best option, I believe, is to bring in someone on a short-term deal, whether it's a veteran who is slowing down a bit but can still play 35-40 games, or someone who could potentially break out as a number one guy. Rittich both needs and deserves the opportunity to continue improving his play, and it would be criminal of the team to not make sure that he's getting half or more of the starts next year, performance pending.

The pick is lottery protected so if the Canucks have a top ten pick then it backs out a year. Last year, the Canucks had a winning record in 5 out of 7 months of the year; they had an atrocious stretch that tanked them but they are closer to the playoffs than a lot of people think. They think that Miller can be a second line winger and if he can, he's worth a midround first.

I came here to post this though:

Nashville drafted a player so obscure the NHL didn't know he existed.

Roberto Luongo officially retired this morning.

Florida is on the hook for $1 million towards the salary cap for the next two or three years, but that probably means they are all in on trying to sign Bobrovsky (and Panarin).

Vancouver is on the hook for $3 million per year for the duration of Luongo's deal, so they're effectively dealing with a $78.5 million salary cap in comparison to the league's $81.5

I hope Weber retires in the last year of his contract.... Nashville would have a 24 mil penalty. It would be amazing.

The Avalanche acquired Andre Burakovsky today from the Capitals. With an increased role in Colorado, he could be a very good pickup for them.

TRADE ALERT: The Penguins have acquired forward Alex Galchenyuk and defenseman Pierre-Olivier Joseph from the Coyotes in exchange for Phil Kessel, Dane Birks, and a 2021 fourth-round draft pick.

I'm not sure how I feel about this? I was never a huge fan of Kessel before he came to Pittsburgh but he kind of worked his way into my good graces. I know he and Sully didn't have the best relationship but he still had decent numbers.

Feel good about it Forky. Moving Kessel means that Malkin and Letang are probably safe. This off-season was always about trying to move Kessel to free up cap space because they needed the room, and he didn't gel with the team on a personal level from reports.

Galchenyuk could be a nice pickup for them. He's the type of guy who they've brought in during past seasons and saw massive improvement just from playing in Pittsburgh.

In equally large news, the Flames signed depth centerman Alan Quine to a two way contract. Quine fit in nicely on the NHL roster for the games that he was able to play, so I'm glad to have him back.

My issue is that despite their personal differences, Kessel has produced. I haven't paid attention to Gally in Phoenix but he was kind of disappointing during his time in Montreal.

I think the issue was his draft position versus expectations. He was supposed to have been the guy in Montreal but clearly couldn't live up to those expectations of him. He has talent but he can't carry a team, but I think Pittsburgh is a good spot for him.

      We're about a month out from training camp, so why not make a new thread?
       
      Also, did you know that John Tavares is a Toronto Maple Leaf?
    • By Ruki
      So....free agency is a think! Shattenkirk got less money/term than I was expecting, was sad the Leafs didn't get him. BUT! They did get Marleau! Big contract, but I think he could do great things with Matthews, and it gives us the option of trading JVR for defensive help should we feel the need. 
       
      Also! Price signed his extension...in 2018/19 he's going to be making 10.5 for 8 years. He's the best (or at least top 3) goalie in the world...he's worth the money, but I can't help but feel they will be in cap hell by having that much money tied up in net. 
    • By Toe
      I didn't see a topic for this so....
       
      I used to buy the EA NHL games on the day of release every year - until I played last years game on the PS4. Something about it just wasn't appealing - especially in the menus when trying to play my favourite mode, Be A GM. 
       
      I heard this year's version is better, so I picked it up a few days ago. And it is better - the menus are more responsive and less of a pain in the ass to navigate. The actual game play is pretty fun too. Very smooth. I feel like I can score in a ton of different ways. Sniping it off the rush, deking around the goaltender, one timers, point shots. It's not a frustrating experience like last year - it's just fun.
       
      The real reason for starting this thread is...I want to talk about my GM mode as the Leafs. I attempted to tank hard - the Jets took Bernier for a first, and I was able to unload a ton of guys and wound up with 4 first round picks and 4 second round picks, plus a bunch more later on. The team was pretty thin beyond, especially in goal with only Reimer and Garrett Sparks. I thought I had orchestrated the perfect tank job.
       
      The hockey gods laughed at this thought.
       
      Instead, despite not having a player score more then 21 goals or more then 60 points on the roster, the 2015/16 Toronto Maple Leafs would go on to win the division and only fall out of the playoff in the second round. The teams who had traded their picks away to the Leafs also finished strong - so despite having four picks in the first round, the earliest pick I had was 15th overall. I was not pleased.
       
      When it was time for the draft, I knew that I needed to add an impact player. Edmonton was 1st overall (again?!), but willing to deal. I was able to package two picks in the first round plus a prospect to get the top pick - and with that, drafted Auston Matthews. My remaining picks were late in the first round, so I packaged them to move up to tenth, where I picked up Jake Bean. 
       
      The other big move came in free agency. I was unsure about committing to Reimer as my top goaltender, so I looked to see if anything was available on the block. Low and behold, the Ducks were willing to move 22 year old John Gibson - a goaltender with the potential to become elite. I sent them Kasperi Kapanen and a 2nd round pick in 2018, and then signed Anders Lindback to have a solid back up. 
       
      Going into year two, I've made some significant changes to the team, and some of the players have really grown. Already, Auston Matthews is 87 overall with the potential to be a franchise player. Gibson jumped from 86 overall at the time of the trade, to 89 overall in the preseason. Morgan Reilly and Jake Gardiner are both far and away the best defenders on the team, while Dion and Scott Harrington (from the Kessel deal) are a very good second pairing. And Nazem Kadri is 89 overall and should have a fantastic season paired with JVR.

      I was asleep when the draft started, and I forgot to do this earlier in the day.

      Welcome to the new season, everyone!

      I'll edit in some more thoughts over the course of my Monday, but for now all i'll say is that MacKinnon better score ALL of the goals if we've passed up on Seth Jones to a team within our own division.

      -------------------------

      My draft day:

      I woke up at 4am to go to the bathroom and decided to check Twitter to see who we'd drafted, dreaded the worst. Scroll back through tweets...Yup, MacKinnon. Dammit, I wanted Seth. What's this, you say?! Major trade? I'll stay awake for this. HOLY FUCKING SHIT CORY SCHNEIDER!!! At this point I probably did what you all did, which was dash to @strombone1 and wait. As I watched some media coverage, Holy F'n Shit was I ever NOT prepared for Nathan MacKinnon's lisp. Oh god Seth Jones is in our division I hate my life. Good lord, that is a WORLD CLASS lisp.
