I agree with your point on Michigan born players but I felt the need to point it out due to management. They seem to like having them.. Could be a coincidence. But I agree, it shouldn't make a difference in why we go after them.

Oh my f***. Does this mean We're forced into protecting Ericsson? :(


I guess it depends on what the agreement was. And it might depend on if it's a modified NTC/when it expires.

Hopefully we'll know more about the expansion draft soon

There's zero % chance trouba will ever be made available for an expansion draft ... They'd rather put Myers and enstrom before putting trouba up


Agreed. I read today that the NHL and NHLPA agreed on an expansion draft format and what to do about NTC/NMC but they didn't state what the agreement was..

But I remember something about the nhlpa wanting one or both of the clauses protected and in which case the jets may have too many to protect Trouba or something along those lines

 
Regardless, they're likely to trade someone this summer so they can get picks/prospects in return that they don't have to protect. 
 
If I'm a GM of a team that won't be a cup contender next year, I'm deciding now who to protect in the expansion draft and trading anyone outside of that of any value on draft day to stock the farm and land more picks. I would definitely not leave good players exposed and to lose for nothing. 


Yeah a looming expansion draft should do wonders for trades and speculation. I'm pretty excited to see how free agency/the draft unfolds across the league this year and next

In this video they state otherwise unfortunately.

In regards to the Little Ceasars symbol on the roof:
 
"That will probably be permanent but the jewel itself, the part the wraps around the rink, will change colour."

Booooo. You'd think they could use some of the naming money they're paying themselves to make the roof still happen

But yeah, no one will care nearly as much come puck drop. Just gotta get the trolling and disappointment out of our systems :P

Was the roof thing ever officially announced?
