  1. Barring any trades or UFA signings, it would not surprise me if Sutter went with the following 23 man roster to begin the season: Gaudreau (LW) – Lindholm (C/RW) – Tkachuk (LW/RW) Mangiapane (LW/RW) – Monahan (C) – Coleman (LW/RW) Dube (LW/RW) – Backlund (C) – Pitlick (RW) Lucic (LW) – Lewis (C/RW) – Ritchie (RW) Ruzicka (C/RW) - Gawdin (C/RW) = both could fill in at C or RW on the 4th line. Hanifin (LD) – Andersson (RD) Valimaki (LD) – Tanev (RD) Kylington (LD) – Zadorov (LD/RD) Welinski (RD) I feel that Welinski will be the 7th D as Mackey is exempt from waivers. Markstrom Vladar
  2. The folks on the Oilers MB are not happy with Nurse's new contract. https://the-omb.proboards.com/#category-3
  3. I'm not a fan of having one of the entrances on the NW corner where the prevailing winds come from.

  6. An article out of Chicago: "Bowman should not bring back Zadorov on a long-term deal. Both his WAR and SPAR were zero this season. That means he is a “replacement-level” player. So, by these metrics, if you replaced him with your average AHL call-up or free agent, there would be no change in team wins or overall points." https://thehockeywriters.com/blackhawks-2020-21-player-grades-nikita-zadorov/

  8. I don't know if the ask is "crazy", but IMO, I would be uncomfortable with parting with 6 players for a single player who is a "star", not a "superstar". The Flame's organisations player pool is thin enough that I'm not sure it could take a 6 - 1 hit.
  9. The qualifying offer must be 100% of his AAV, not the $9M that he will receive in the final year of his current contract. So, a multiple year offer around $7.5M - $7.75M may be possible.
  10. I recall that it was Ken Linesman who was instrumental in lowering the draft eligibility from 20 to 18. http://www.originalhockeyhalloffame.com/news-events/linseman.html
  11. Gallagher might work at better digging out pucks for Gaudreau and Monahan.
  12. I feel that Tanev might be the best fit for Hanifin on the second pairing.
  13. Yes, I feel that Markstrom will be shooting for the moon on his next contract.
