    Wonder if the Wild are taking a hard run at Eichel...........

    With $13,000,000 in dead money next year and $14,600,000 in dead cap the next 2 years after that. highly unlikely good luck with him even being able to afford Kaprizov let alone adding Eichel to the mix.

    Boy I hope it's Vancouver and not Toronto. Will be hard to watch a fan favorite go to the Leafs.

    Eriksson + Juolevi + 9th overall this year for Bertuzzi

    Heck no Eriksson and juolevi are trash and the 9th overall pick in a weak draft that still 3-4 years away from playing. No thanks. From Vancouver it starts with Boeser and Podkolzin nothing less.

    Friedman is now reporting Yzerman indeed taking calls on Bertuzzi. Believes Toronto and Vancouver are front runners 

    Yzerman also said that he plans on signing Bert to a multi year deal and keep him. Yeah Yzerman is fielding calls doesn't mean he's moving Bert though. And saying that Toronto and Vancouver are front runner is laughable considering neither will give Yzerman his asking price.

    I happen to believe Bertuzzi will be dealt. 

    The only way Bertuzzi is dealt, is if he tells Yzerman he plans on going to free agency and wont sign long term.

    I agree.  I just checked out a Vancouver forum and some fans are very excited about the idea of getting Bertuzzi and some have even said "just give a 3rd rounder because he has injury issues".  Other fanbases have no clue about how valuable Bert is.  If Vancouver wants Bert, for me the conversation starts and ends with Brock Boeser, that is how much I value Bertuzzi.  I would not even trade for the #9 pick straight up for Bert because I would have my doubts that whoever we would get at 9 in a weaker draft would add as much value as Bert.  One thing none of us know though is what is happening behind the scenes.  The last time they had to negotiate with Bertuzzi it was not easy and I could be wrong but I think they had to go to arbitration.  There might be a situation going on where Stevie knows that Bert won't be an easy signing or that Bert values himself injury history and all, to be much higher than the Wings think he should be paid.  I really don't want to see him traded.  I would love to see how a Larkin-Vrana-Bert line plays out.

    Yeah well Canuck fans are delusional if they think we'd take a 3rd rounder because of Tyler Bertuzzi's injury history. This is the only season he's missed tons of time due to an injury. if this were the case then jack Eichel has no value. fans are. Honestly Vancouver doesn't have a single piece outside like you said Brock Boeser that would even entice me to move Bertuzzi to Vancouver. Podkolzin at least would need to come back as well. Vancouver's prospect pool is shallow as it is. No thanks from Vancouver they can keep their scraps.

    Has anyone been bought out yet? Sheesh, from the sound of the writers, I thought there'd be a bunch. When does the window close?

    Nope, none that i've seen yet.

    18 hours ago, LeftWinger said:

    I'm betting Nielsen and Dekeyser.

    Are we only alloted 2? Is there another window? I thought it had something to do with arbitration filings later...

    Makes absolutely no sense to buy out DeKeyser and Nielsen, if you want to open up spots for the youngsters just bury them in GR and let them mentor the kids there for 1 year. There's only another window if a player takes the team to salary arbitration.

    I can't wait to draft Edvinsson in the 6 spot. 

    Simon Edvinsson is my top choice at 6th overall, Edvinsson-Seider would make a sweet top pairing some day.

    Hush you!

    You're ruining the narrative that netminders picked in the 1st round are sumthin bad - waste of a pick sumthin - history of 1st round picks sumthin - sumthin sumthin .....

    Awe my bad, I take back everything i said. But i still agree it's bad karma to take goalies in the top 10.

    Although Seider is our guy, Im getting the feeling Gustav Nyquist will come back to Detroit.  Would you take him at 3 years, 3 mil per?

    No thanks, Don't want either Nyquist or Tatar back.

    Hot take:

    Wings take Wally and Bruins take Cossa

    What does Petro do?

    Well Petru grew up a diehard Bruins fan, So he signs a 2 year deal with the Bruins more then likely.

    I think some ppl are delusional about us not being a bottom team next year and reading way too much into a season where everyone faced the same teams over and over and avoided 75% of the league.

    Sure we dont have a ton of bad contracts on the team anymore (although im sure yzerman would add a few more for extra assets if he could) but we also dont have much scoring talent and much offense provided from the back end outside of hronek and now seider.

    Yzerman knows how important the next few drafts are and im sure he’ll try and help our lottery odds as well as helping the team get better. I’ll definitely be watching to see seider and hoping zadina finally takes big step. I can also see yzerman possibly trading bertuzzi/vrana at some point to get another 1st + while also “unintentionally” making us lose a few more games

    Also can see raymond/berggren being delayed and possibly veleno till the deadline but i do think things will start turning pretty fast  2 yrs from now

    If we can get wallstedt at 8 and get another 2nd  as well and move 37 and another 2nd into the first round and somehow leave with wallstedt/robertsson and raty/morrow that would be a nice opening night

    Yeah i'd be happy if we made those offers, Taking Wallstadt at 8th is fine just don't want him with the 6th pick. Getting Wallstadt and one of Robertson/Raty would be awesome.

  11. I'd be happy with either Mason McTavish or William Eklund. Just don't want Jesper Wallstadt at #6 would love to use the Caps #22 pick along with one of our Mid 2nds and take Sebastian Cossa though.

    No, not really. 1st round picks are 1st round picks. These are player we're talking about, who have value external to their draft pedigree.

    Is 2006 Zetterberg only worth a 7th because that's where he was drafted?
    Is 2017 Riley Sheahan worth a 1st because that's where he was drafted?

    Any pro scout, and I assume every single fan, will tell you Dennis Cholowski is not worth a 1st in a trade. Do you beg to differ?

    Cholowski would return a late 2nd early 3rd round pick. Doesn't matter because Zadina 100% returns a 1st round pick plus on top of rhe 23rd overall pick. Bottom line is Reinhart isn't worth that much especially a one year rental.

    Who said anything about three 1st round picks? Zadina is a Filppula/Hudler/Nyquist/Tatar level player. Cholowski is a Brendan Smith. I'm suggesting trading a late 1st + 2nd line winger + a 7th Dman for a young 2C.

    The last and most relevant season is cherry picking lol?

    LOL they're still 1st round picks rather you like it or not. First off fat chance of Reinhart signing long term with a rebuilding team, And secondly Reinhart is 26 years old so i hardly call him a young 2C.

    In the New athletic podcast with max and craig , craig said theres less than 10% chance of either goalies being there in the 20’s as too many teams are interested in them . Maybe that’ll knock some sense into some people living in a dreamworld where we’ll get cossa at 22

    Who in their right mind would even suggest Jesper Wallstadt falling in the the 20's? Doubtful if Wallstadt goes past 13th overall. And Edmonton picks at 19th overall and i can easily see Holland taking Sebastian Cossa with that pick. if Yzerman wants Cossa he'll have to attach one of the Mid 2nds to the 22 pick and take Cossa lower then 19th overall.

    I do believe that Erne took Namestnikov's protection away. I am still hoping that Yzerman protects Stecher.

    Here is my updated list:

    Larkin, Vrana, Bertuzzi, Rasmussen, Erne, Fabbri and, yes Glendening.

    Hronek, Lindstrom(or Cholowski), Stecher


    ...the reason I protected Glenny is a team like Seattle might really want the type of player and locker room guy he is. I know that leaves Svech and Smith exposed, but I just feel that if Glenny was left open, he'd be taken. Especially all the hype he's gotten around TDL's in the last couple of season's. I am thinking with the likes of Namestnikov and Panik being exposed, we might be safe with not losing Svech or Smith, although I do believe Svech's time is up. Maybe Yzerman works out a trade with Seattle to take Svech...

    Glendening isn't worth protecting, Noway i'm protecting Glendening say over Givani Smith. This is bad asset management.

    >To BUF: 2021 WSH pick + Filip Zadina + Dennis Cholowski
    >To DET: Sam Reinhart


    >Sign Zach Hyman $6 million x 4
    >Sign Jamie Oleksiak $4 million x 3
    >Sign Mikko Lehtonen $2 million x 2

    Vrana - Reinhart - Bertuzzi
    Fabbri - Larkin - Hyman
    Namestnikov - Rasmussen - Erne
    Smith - Glendening - Panik

    Oleksiak - Hronek
    Lehtonen - Seider
    Dekeyser - Stecher


    Now that looks like a roster


    LOL On what planet is Sam Reinhart worth 3 1st round picks? First off fat chance he'd even sign long term with Detroit, And secondly Reinhart is in noway worth 3 1st round picks. I wouldn't even do Reinhart 1 for 1 for Zadina let alone adding Cholowsk and the Caps 22nd overall pick to the deal as well. FYI you didn't even sign Reinhart who's probably going to command around 7x7 and in noway is Reinhart even close to 1C territory.
