  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.
  14. I feel that Markstrom will be too expensive. I'm all for Plan B, Holtby.
  15. I still wince from Fletcher fleecing Riseborough in the Gilmour trade.
  16. I'm not unhappy about the return, it was probably the best that could be expected due to his current play. I feel that Frolik was a very good free agent signing and performed quite well for 3 of the 4.5 seasons that he had been with the Flames. Crossing my fingers that the scouts find a gem with the early 4th round San Jose draft pick.
  17. Many of the Oiler fans that were on the team's official message board have moved to: http://the-omb.proboards.com/#category-3 They went this route because many of them did not want to go to the HF boards.
  18. In my mind, the ideal way to make Cap Space to re-sign the RFAs would be to trade Frolik and Stone for draft picks. Second choice would be to trade them for prospects.
  19. JTech780: I'm kind of on the fence regarding taking on Jason Zucker's contract. 4 more years at a $5.5M Cap Hit ($5.625M per in actual dollars). He's only been close to worth those dollars once (during the 2017/2018 season). He will be nearly 31 years old when it expires. Beginning July 25, he will have a 10 team no trade list. That said, I'd certainly take a shot at him for Frolik+ a bottom 6 roster forward, or a B prospect, or a 2020 3rd round draft pick. Personally, I don't have much interest in Joel Eriksson. In the NHL, his best season has been 6G + 10A = 16P in 75 games. IMO, the only advantage that he has over Mark Jankowski is that he is two years younger and plays a little better of a 200' game.
  20. Wouldn't he be an import and an over-ager in the CHL next season? If so, that would take up 2 roster spots. In that case, I'd bet on him playing overseas for a year.

    Great choice Pyro, that song always makes me think of those that I've lost.
  22. I agree completely. Count me in as one who would like to re-sign Frolik when his contract expires. Just not at $4.3M and for no longer than two or three years.
