  1. But all the big names were gone before deadline day. Deadline day itself was nothing but scrubs and ahl players being moved. GM's aren't waiting for deadline day anymore. If a player is available, they are going for it. That's why the prices are higher. GM's overpay to get the players they want early. Which is why Holland needs to act now, and not march 1st. Vanek and Smith shouldn't even be red wings by the time we wake up tomorrow.
  2. That wasn't the case at all last year. As for the worry, it stems from the organization being idiots and willing to play a player in tomorrow's game that, going by current market value in trades, can easily fetch a first round pick. If Vanek gets hurt tomorrow, he has zero trade value.
  3. I feel Holland will hold out for too high a price, and teams will just pursue other players. Vanek, Smith, and Ott should have had played their last game as a Wing at this point. Playing them tomorrow would be idiotic.
  4. I'm merely pointing out the fact that they can't use a UFA to fulfill the requirements to expose players.
  5. They can only expose an RFA. Vegas will have a window to try and work out a deal with Bishop before the expansion draft, which would count as LA's lost player if he signs. BUT LA cannot use Bishop as their exposed goalie. It's still gonna be Zatkoff.
  6. Vegas has to submit their draft choices by June 20th. That's before the window to talk to UFAs begins.
  7. As does all other teams
  8. This is not true.
  9. But they can't expose a UFA... Has to either be a player contracted for next season or RFA only.
  10. Why would Vegas draft a UFA? That doesn't make any sense. If Bish has any interest in Vegas, he can sign there July 1st. Vegas does not need to, and won't, waste a pick on a UFA.
  11. I'm okay with Smith sticking around if he wants to re-sign before the deadline. Even during a rebuild, we are gonna need some experience on the blueline. Would rather have him around than guys like Ericsson. Having said that, if he doesn't re-sign by March 1st, he gots to go.
  12. Bish is UFA this summer. They got him as insurance. With Quick's style and coming back from a bad groin injury, they are making sure they have a goalie for a run.
  13. To be fair, Quick hasn't played in months. I guess they feel they can make a run, and want to have another proven goalie to get them there, as the schedule for most teams in this last stretch of the season is pretty brutal.
  14. At this point, I'd expect to see Myers be the odd man out on Winnipeg. There is just no reason for them to trade Trouba anymore.
  15. While I do not think Trouba is overrated, I agree that Liljegren should be the priority if we have a high enough pick to get him. That being said, if we win the lottery, my vote is on drafting Patrick and giving up Larkin or AA for Trouba straight up.
