God I hope GM of the Year Bob Murray (what a disgrace to that award) is stupid enough to mortgage the future with 1st rounders or good young roster players to land someone like Spezza or Thornton. Would love to see Anaheim go into full win now mode at all costs. Same with Chicago. I am rooting for stupid. Always a safe bet with the Ducks.
Dave Boland is a fucking idiot…although I am surprised Toronto didn’t bite. You do realize they paid David Clarkson more than what we are paying Marian Gaborik right? Gotta love the Maple Leafs.
My prediction – lots and lots of trades the day before the draft, at the NHL Draft and the next couple of days after the draft. Just see it coming. The storm is building.
Willie Mitchell is gone and I would not be surprised if a rival snatches him up. That would suck but I don’t see him re-signing after the Greene and Gaborik contracts. I hope he goes to Vancouver. Perhaps wishful thinking.
There is no hurry to sign Dwight King and I would be a little surprised if we do before 7/1. That can wait. Let the dust settle, get the lay of the free agent land and see what we have left. Also see what kind of offers come in from other teams for our players, if nothing else to gauge the market.
I don’t want to see Linden Vey go. I dig this kid. He has some serious skill. I realize he could be another Loktionov but I don’t want to believe that. I just made Surly sad.
When you are really up and excited about good things happening, the most important thing you should do is stop and look around, see what is coming down the line that could hurt you or what you have to be aware of to avoid mistakes. I do that. You should do that. I know Dean does that. Never let a high artificially cloud your mind.
San Jose should blow up their team. It’s for the best.
I still say Jack Dougherty at 29. I like everything I see and read about this kid. He has King written all over him. NHL Network thinks he is going earlier to Chicago and we are getting Claude Lemieux’s son, Brendan. That would be weird…mostly because I hated his dad.
McNabb as number 7 and steps in for Greene if and when needed.
That’s it right? Okay. I can live with that so long as Slava’s post contract hangover is over.
