Ya, that's the ticket, because I've said that so many times...only once you can prove.

I bet you were the kind of kid that would scream and cry if you didnt get to open all of your presents on christmas eve.

And then you would complain that the presents you received werent the ones you wanted.

This expansion draft is utter farce. Teams should not be allowed to make 'bungs' to Vegas so they won't pick a certain player they have to expose. It should be a straightforward pick one from each teams list for Vegas and that's it . The way it's going Vegas will have 62 draft picks an a AHL standard team that will get drilled nearly every game, thus losing the fan base before they have one !#

You're absolutely right, that's they way I would have done it if I was running the NHL. However, all these extra trades are fun for me SO BACK OFF

Uh....no. again, you think you know someone and you're dead wrong. 

You sure like to try to belittle people. Can you post on subject or even about hockey? Haven't seen it...

I don't recall, when Nashville took Doug Brown from us back in the day, did we have protected list?

If we didn't, why did Nashville take Doug Brown?

Hey man, Doug Brown was my dad's favorite player back then... don't go slagging off Doug Brown.  ;)

...actually, he was my Dad's favorite player.  I bought him a jersey for Christmas and everything...

I just don't recall ever hearing the term protection list or ever reading about what players were left unprotected. Maybe it wasn't made public back then....

They did, the internet wasn't as prevalent back then though, so not asuch was released.

Oh, I like Brownov.  It's just that Nashville likely would have selected... I don't know, possibly Fedorov if they had the chance. 

Or, maybe I have it all wrong and Nashville's goal was to get in good with the Maras.

What's the record for picks in one draft? I wonder if Vegas breaks it :P   It also seems very possible that they're quick to success compared to other expansion teams if they do it right. 

I wouldn't be at all surprised if they end up with upwards of 30 picks.

Just worried if we got rid of Ericsson holland would give another stupid  signing to someone we don't need , rather save the money for when the times needed and we can land someone impactful ... Not a fan of ericsson but at this point he has 2 more yrs , suffer another season or trade him now with some of his salary, but we both know it won't happen 

E has 3 years left.

Honestly, if we protect Z, Mantha, AA, Nyquist, Tatar, Nielsen (NMC), and Sheahan, Mrazek, DD, Green, and XO then how bad can our loss be.

We can't trade a 3rd to protect Jensen, then another to protect Sproul, then a 4th to protect Nosek etc etc etc. Just accept the loss, maybe they take Jimmy.

Holland said he would not trade assets to protect, never said anything as far as I know of trading assets to dump salary. If we walk away from this sans E and lose a guy like nosek or Jensen, I'm pretty happy.

Didn't you read? Holland has all the picks, he's amassed so many! 

Protect Jensen over XO, if it comes down to those two.

Plus he won't be active because he thinks he's going to carry us to the promised land with 4 3rds and Ericsson.

Youre right. It would be much more constructive if I stated my desire to draft Tippet and Hague about 50 times a day.

Well you'd have me beat. Again, in your never ending quest to be "k00l," you try to belittle and state falsehoods. Were you bullied in grammar school? Maybe you can spend your time today going back over old posts and tell us how many times I said, "Holland... bad."

 

So since you cannot have a conversation about hockey, for the 3rd or 4th time, don't bring me up or respond to my posts. Thanks.

Goodnight little fella.
