    Here's what doesn't help our cause, idiots like Ottawa taking on Derek Stepan's $6.5M, bailing out Arizona, and NOT getting anything for it! As a matter of fact they GAVE Arizona a 2nd round pick! I mean I know they had THREE 2nds, but come on Ottawa, don't bail these teams out for nothing! Idiots...

    Yeah i was totally shocked that Pierre Dorian gave Arizona a 2nd round pick for Derek Stepan, Bill Armstrong made out like bandits while Pierre Dorian made himself look like a fool.

    Comparing this to Staal is an awful comparison.

    Staal was the Rangers equivalent of Jon Ericsson. A Pure salary dump. He can barely skate anymore and isn't a good player. We got a 2nd in exchange for a pretty much useless garbage player.

    Johnson and Killorn are not in the same category in the slightest. Killorn is a good player on a good contract. Johnson is a good player on an inflated contract. Staal was a bad player on a bad contract.

    But yet you're willing to take on $9,450,000 between Johnson and Killorn for the next 3 years for only a measly 2nd round pick, That's pretty much giving Tampa a free get out of cap hell pick right there. Why would any sane GM give them a break?

    >Bonus 2nd round pick

    What's not to like?

    So basically we're taking a 3 year contract in Killorn and a 4 year contract in Johnson for a measly 2nd round pick. Yet received a 2nd round pick for 1 year worth of Staal. So ask yourself this question why Yzerman would make such a dumb trade like that? You're basically taking on long term assets for little to no compensation in a flat cap world that's totally ludicrous.

    Tampa desperately need to shed cap space, but if they decide to trade Stamkos, he wouldn't strictly be a cap dump. They're not giving up assets to get rid of him. They would still get a pretty big return for him. Despite his injury history and age, he's still an elite, over a point per game player. He would instantly become our best player.

    You're not getting Stamkos (plus another asset) for a 3rd round pick or lower... Not even close. Remove the "other asset", bump the pick up to a 2nd, and include a top prospect, and it might be enough to get the conversation started...

    I like Stamkos a lot, but we're not in a position to be giving up premium assets for a 30+ player, regardless how much he would improve the team in the short term.

    Yes, these are the players (along with Gourde) that BriseBois will likely be looking to trade as camp dumps. The return would have to be pretty significant for me to want to take on 3-5 years at $4.5-5M of any of those middle six, past their prime forwards... I'd want at least a 1st round pick, plus for each of them.

    Same here i'd want Tampa's 2021 1st round pick and a good prospect for Tyler Johnson, And at least a 2nd and b prospect for Alex Killorn as well.

    Somebody ain't gonna be a Lightning next year! Wonder who is looking over their shoulders? There are a LOT of NTC's to be waived on that team!

    And my bet is on Alex Killorn and Tyler Johnson being out the door. Julien BriseBois will need to get creative to move Johnson's contract.

    I would take Stamkos (plus another asset) in exchange for a 3rd or lower round pick. He has his injury issues the last couple of season's but he is still a pretty elite player. He would have to waive his NMC, but heck, almost all the players that they would "need" to move will have to waive some kind of clause. Not sure is Yzerman would want to take on the 4 years left on the contract though...plus I am not giving him the #91 to wear, unless Fedorov says it is ok, and as an incentive tell Fedorov it'll be retired when the 4 years are up.

    100% take Stamkos if he were willing to waive for Detroit, Just don't think he will even with a cup under his belt.

    No hitting in the OHL this year, is hockey turning into touch football?!

    Yeah that's going to suck for Albin Grewe, Kid can't even put his Kronwall on.

    Anyone else like the idea of Hanifin becoming a Red Wing?


    Murphy is a hack he's worse then Eklund when it comes to rumors, While Hanifin would be nice. It's probably going to be to expensive to acquire him.

    Not sure Chris can afford Boychuk right now

    Real money on Boychuk is only $5.2 mil for the next 2 years, While his cap hit is $12 mil over 2 seasons. The cap hit is more of a problem then actual money owed.

    Seabrook was placed on LTIR last season because of a shoulder injury and he had also scheduled surgery on both of his hips.

    Again: just a feeling, haven't read any reports or rumors.

    Yeah if Seabrook heads back to LTIR, I could possibly then see Stan making a move for Marc Andre-Fleury. I guess only time will tell.

    In this scenario they would get paid pick(s) or prospect(s) to "help" Vegas out.

    Would be sweet if Yzerman could get a 1st from McCrimmon then flip him to Stan for $3,500,000 and another 2nd round pick helps both Vegas and the Hawks out.

    Why do I get the feeling that Chicago are gonna be the ones taking MAF off Vegas hands?

    Doubtful, Stan Bowman is pretty much on record wanting to go with youth, That's why he let Crawford walk. Pretty sure he'd have resigned Crawford before dealing for Marc Andre-Fleury.

    Yzerman better be on the phone with McCrimmon, working on a three way trade involving Fleury / other team...

    I was thinking the exact same thing, We need that 1st round pick or at least 2 2nds coming back.

    A St Louis reporter tweeted last night that he doesn't have any plans of vistiting any other teams so it looks like a done deal.

    I see he and his wife were looking at the Summerlin area, That's where my Girlfriend raised her daughter very nice area for sure.

    Just now, amato said:

    sounds even more like Vegas wins.. Leafs just signed Bogosian and TJ Brodie

    Yeah i doubt Toronto was ever a serious contender for him, From the sound of things he pretty much had his mind on Vegas all along.

    I know the rumors were that he had the most interest in either hometown Toronto or Vegas.

    I stil fight tooth and nail for a 1st , i know everyone loves demko especially that 3 game performance but im still not sold on the guy , he had like a 905% in the regular season and he’d be on a way worse team here ... he comes here and is just average we took eriksson for nothing

    Yeah getting a 1st round pick would be my goal, Just saying that if it doesn't happen Demko would be a good 2nd consolation prize.

    Oh i totally agree the 2021 1st round pick would be my preference of choice as well. Demko+2nd round pick my next choice.

     to be

    Rumors on markstrom getting close , as nice as demko was for a short stint i cant imagine them not bringing markstrom back .Could be good opportunity especially if they want ekman larsson , no chance i just take demko alone for eriksson though

    Nope perhaps Eriksson+Demko+Vancouver's 2021 2nd round pick going to be expensive to unload on Eriksson.

    Yzerman should be pushing HARD to trade for Sergachev (again).

    Vancouver, Boston, and Edmonton all in on an OEL trade.

    Ghostbear still available. Bobby Ryan said he's interested in going to the Flyers.

    Friedman says a Barzal offersheet could be in the works.

    Habs willing to move their 1st rounder. NJD willing to move both of theirs as well. Maple Leafs possibly interested in moving theirs.

    Jake Virtanen on the market. Sporstnet is saying Demko, Gaudette, and Stetcher might be available as well. Which is weird with Demko cause that would mean VAN intends to keep Markstrom? Canucks are super active according to McKenzie.

    Lavoie saying Johnny Hockey could be traded out of Calgary this week

    There you go Stevie Y Loui Eriksson+Thatcher Demko for a bag of pucks. Get it done.

    He's on target to play next season, he says he feels great.

    Signing Krug would be a terrible idea.

    Agreed, A rebuilding team shouldn't be paying big money for a small LHD like Krug he was very sheltered there in Boston. Odds of him putting up any decent numbers in Detroit is pretty remote.
