Guess who Corey Pronman used to work for? :lol:

Ryan McLeod. Center. Size. Good skater. Fits Wright's recent m/o Questionable upside.

Key there, "used to"... The Athletic > ESPN Trash... ;)

I'm not that high on McLeod, but I'd take him at 30 for sure.

I don't care what you say about stuff, this Friday's going to be the Art Basel of hockey times!

Yeah. it seems they've upgraded to Peters :ninja:

Seems you and I are still in our "getting reacquainted" phase

Haha I'm only messing with you. I honestly have no idea on the quality work ESPN put out. I know they were always lower quality when it came to hockey, but I'm sure they've come a long way over the years. The Athletic puts out great content though. Highly recommend.

As for the Hughes vs Bouchard debate, to be honest, I'd be happy with either, I just slightly lean more toward Bouchard.

You pay that subscription fee? :lol:

Also, I agree. Pumped for whoever they take at 6. (unless it's Jared McIssac)

It all makes sense now...

Wut? As if you don't visit those sites. I'm only gleaning the facts from them. In fact, I cringe at their editorial comments usually. Especiall the Wiim folks. They remind me alot of you guys here at LGWs :lol:

ANYWAY, all the awesome stuff I say it 100 per cent O-rig-i-nal.

Lol it's not even Friday yet and you're already losing it!!

 

*sigh* I can't pretend. It's just not the same without him. He needs to get his rear back here before Friday or this is gonna be the most boring draft ever

:lol:

That is a funny edit!

I want to thank everyone for all the kind words! I am good, I am moving forward, I don't want to talk about it and I NEED this forum to keep my mind going forward! Thanks Again!

Here is (are) my (fantasy) trade scenario(s) for draft day:

 

Both Nyquist and AA address the offense and dynamics that Vancouver is in need of. Could very well become 1st line players there.

 

Calgary is in DESPERATE need of another line. They have become a 1 line team, adding Helm and Svech gives them 2/3 making a very good line! To sweetin the deal the 2019 1s round is NOT lottery protected, so they get it no matter where we finish.  But we get a #1 in Hamilton, so we're good.

 

Here I take Chicago up on their desperation to get rid of Hossa's contract. I'd give them a couple of mid to later round picks to take his contract and their #8 overall.  Worst case scenario, Hossa rides out his contract on LTIR much like Franzen. Best case scenario, he becomes healthy and gets us 15-20 goals a year for a couple of seasons. This eliminates the need to sign either one of Vanek or Kovy. Win-Wn for us and Chicago. (not that I am really into helping Chicago, but I'd piss down their back and call it rain to steal that #8 pick to get Oliver Wahlstrom.)

 

Here is the good one. Sure, at first site, it doesn't look like a great deal for Montreal, but considering they are getting the #6 in return, two good old French Canadian kids to add to the team, PLUS they still should be able to draft the center they need in Kotkaniemi with that #6.

So that gives us #3, #7, #8 in the 1st round. With those picks I take

#3 - Zadina

#7 - Best D Available

#8 - Wahlstrom

With Larkin as our #1 center, Z will slowly transition out as the #2 over the next couple of season's giving way to Ras. Nielsen will remain #3 for the rest of his contract unless he allows us to flip him to a contender on a future TDL day.

I think, even with eliminating the 2019 1st round pick, that sets our rebuild on fire.

(BTW, SO glad I was absent during all that political stuff in the other thread! :lol: I might be the only one left here when the MODS return!)

Thanks again everyone for the kind words! I needed a break from life, but I need to move forward now and I had to get back on here to help keep my life moving on! Bring on Friday! Too bad I'll be working a 16 hour shift that day and will have to rely on my phone for updates! Here's to Holland ripping those tires right off the truck this year!

Of course, if Hossa stays on LTIR over most of this season, you can always swing him to a cap floor team next summer.

Again, if Chicago is willing to toss in the #8 for us (someone) to take Hossa's contract, there is no negative to acquiring him. It is a win-win for sure!

I quit ESPN when the "P" went from Programming to Political.

Wish we could get TSN where I live, but NBC and NHL Network are the only other choices.

I did too.  I hate how politics has crept into everything.

I'm not sure this would even work in a video game
