    2014 draft thoughts.

    All in all not bad for a year when we didn't have a 2nd rounder. Most of them seem to exceed the potential of the players picked after them. Heck, even many before them. You're not going to hit on every pick and you have to expect other teams are going to hit on players as well.

    Yeah, it doesn't work like that...

    My Fantasy

    Yeah but that's not even possible. A team can only retain the salaries of 3 players at a time.

    Our draft position

    So you're not going to sign a mid-level player in 2017 because a couple guys might be available in 2019?? Again...Daley's contract is the last of our worries. I don't really know what to say if you really think that that signing is going to have any effect on any of those guys signing here....It won't. Holland is always going to want character veteran role models around. Daley is a good one who doesn't break the bank and fills a need. Trade a forward if you have to.

    As I've said I think Holland will be smart enough to get all three in bridge deals. However do I think we could gamble and possibly win on a 6x8 type contract with Larkin? Yeah I do and I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility.

    Have you honestly not noticed a trend league-wide where teams have starting locking up their players for their core years coming right off entry -level? You're acting like this is some crazy unprecedented thing that has never happened before.

    Except that deal was signed 5 years ago. Judging for market inflation he would have received 7.5-8m today. Making Larkin's 6x8 deal seem quite reasonable. For every Nugent-Hopkins there's a Nathan MacKinnon. Anyways here's hoping for 3 bridge deals but I wouldn't be surprised to see Larkin sign long-term.

    Ummm no. Larkin's ceiling, potential and pedigree is much higher than those guys were ever considered. Yes Nyquist had hype about possibly becoming a "Zetterberg-lite". That's nothing compared to a potential #1 centerman who plays a complete 200ft game.

    I think a bridge deal for all three would probably be in our best interest. Especially with our current cap situation.

    What do Nyquist and Tatar have to do with anything? Larkin is a potential #1 center. They were undersized potential top 6 wingers. The HYPE isn't even close to comparable. If you want to lock in a player of Larkin's caliber for 8 years you have to pay. Obviously theres risk in that. It's a gamble for both sides. It's all about recent comparables.
