    I'm not worried about Howard's cap hit. We don't need the cap space anyway. But if we can gain future assets for him, I'm all for it. I just don't see Holland trading him and signing two UFA goaltenders to fill the starter and backup positions. I don't see goaltending as a low depth position for us at all. I think we have better depth at that position than most teams in the league. We have at least three (Larsson, Petruzzelli, Fulcher) that could be future NHL goaltenders. The problem is, they're all a minimum of 2-3 years away. We just added two more that are in a similar time frame away. We need a stop gap or two added to the organization. Maybe Howard is that guy. Maybe Rybar, or maybe a UFA...

    In case you aren't aware, Red Wings goaltending prospect Filip Larsson is committed to play for the University of Denver next season. Hopefully, I'll be able to catch a few games and fill you all in.

  14. Official 2018 Off Season *Rebuild* Thread

    hes not clearly better than zadina,rasmussen or another kid hes the last player we need , the only player id accept as a ufa would have been someone like kovalchuk .... only on a one year deal with high cap to pursuade him to come here so we can then trade them for a package of 1sts/2nds at the deadline , as we seen with vanek he has zero trade value so its a hard pass

    Yup, I mentioned the exceptional status earlier in the thread. One of only five players ever granted such an honor into the CHL, and first ever in the QMJHL. Tavares, Ekblad, McDavid and Sean Day were the previous four. Three number one overall picks, Day was drafted 81st overall by the Rangers two years ago (due to concerns with work ethic / attitude), and our boy Veleno inexplicably dropped to 30th overall this year. Still no idea how that happened to a player that was on everyone's list to go in the top 15-20... And yes he's a phenomenal skater, has great hands, great passer, great work ethic and thinks the game at an elite level. The only thing he seems to lack is a shot, and it's not that it's that bad, just not that great. Another thing is, he was one of the best in the draft from the CHL at gaining the offensive zone. I'd much rather a center that can skate like the wind, stickhandle through traffic, thread the needle with passes, works his ass off, that only has an okay shot. That's what his wingers are for. Zadina and Mantha are elite snipers, we just need a couple right-handed snipers. I think he has 2C potential, and if he reaches that, and Larkin reaches his 1C potential, we should have a very strong forward corp in a few years.

    the way our draft went this year id trade howard for a second in a heartbeat , even trade a 3rd and howard for a 2nd and try and stockpile top 60 picks ...just sign whoever and even bring that crap coreau as a backup .... if possible id push hard for samsonov since holtby won the cup but i dont know if that would be doable btw guys xavier ouellet on waivers with the purpose of buyout , once again we lose an asset for nothing ... not expecting much but thought we could of landed a 7th at least off the habs lol im sure he will go there being french and all , oh well no biggie

    Yeah, I've said it before, but I would be completely fine getting some assets for Howard if we can. There are goalies on the market that I feel will play just as good as he does and won't cost as much. I would say, go out and sign Lehtonen and Hutton/Khudobin. Or Bernier and one of those other guys. As far as drafting 2 goalies, Holland is just trying to get some more depth at a low-depth position. I have no issue drafting a 21-year-old goaltender that late since goalies take longer to develop and come into their own.

    I really doubt Holland moves Howard, but I'd be curious to know what kind of offers he's receiving. If he could get us a couple high picks (2nd / 3rd round), I'd move him and sign any of the UFA goalies as a stop gap before one of the kids emerge. This could be a reason we took that 2nd goalie yesterday in the 6th round, Victor Brattstrom. He's an over-ager (21 years old), and could be the closest to being NHL ready among all our goalie prospects. I doubt he has the highest ceiling, but has put up great numbers in Sweden's 2nd tier league. He'll be playing in the SHL this season, so we'll see how he performs against the best players in Sweden.

    I'm listening to Tyler Wright talk about drafting... Didn't realize Veleno was one of the best skaters in this draft. Didn't realize he got special exemption to play at a young age. And didn't realize he's captained team Canada at the Hlinka tournament. What a steal. Kid screams superior skating, skill, and character.

    I'm thinking these 3 pictures tell the story of the woman sitting on the steps. The first one shows the shocked look of the woman when she saw her lady parts on display. The second one shows her husband praying that his irate wife doesn't realize that he saw those lady parts 10 minutes earlier, and had been pretending to just be spacing out while completely gawking at Ms. lady parts. And the third one is another fan demanding they show the instant replay, in slow motion, on the Jumbotron.
