    I didn’t wanna leave our hockey friends in the dark! Anybody else really looking forward to it?

    Might put a blog together on this today. I had to get on capfriendly and make my own team. it didn’t look as good as I thought it would. Lots of bloated contracts out there. Who are the “easy” picks and what do you expect to happen?

    I can see it happening, just not sure they’re willing to take that contract. Quite a few goalies available but he’s obviously the best!

    Ballsy move by Bergevin, but it’s kind of a win no matter what happens. If Seattle takes Price, so be it. He has maybe 3-4 years in him before retiring, he’s injury prone (he’s probably even injured as we speak) and has a massive contract. He’s obviously the reason why Habs got this far a few weeks ago, but that might have been the end of the Price era! I wish him the best anyway, as he has served my Habs very well through the years.

    There are some great players available, but there are so many things we probably don’t know that will affect the draft. In theory, Ovechkin is available, but is there really a chance Seattle picks him?

    That was another curious one but one of those FA deals, so they have him for a couple days before other teams can negotiate. However I do see Dougie Hamilton getting picked by them.

    He’s a tremendous D. Could get reunited with Giordano, too.

    Tarasenko is a great winger, and TB has some decent guys to offer, too. Taylor Hall is another interesting pick. Goalie options are stacked.

    Posted a blog on this! https://rotogrinders.com/blog-posts/nhl-expansion-draft-3657496

    This was tougher to “build” than I thought… defense wins championships right?

    Nice! I have tried it too and it’s more complicated than it seems. It’s tempting to take all studs, but those cap hits hurt!

    Is Jimmy Giordano his nickname or something?

    Lol PhoFever caught that as well. Sorry that was a school friend who so happened to play hockey as well. Must have been subconsciously.

    No doubt! I do seem to recall a spending spree when the cap went up a few years back. Definitely lots of bad contracts out there.

    Ok this thing is off the rails!!! Picks leaking and it’s bad lol Feel bad for SEA fans right now unless they have a FA plan…

    Pretty much all picks are leaked and it’s absurdly horrible. It’s fine if they want to compete in 5+ years I guess, but I don’t see them not being bottom 3 with that roster.

    They have a total of 1 first liner (Eberle) and 1 top 2 D (Giordano). I guess there are contract rules that we don’t know about, but how did they not pick any of Hall, Tarasenko, Price, Hamilton, Landeskog, Subban, Shattenkirk, Klefbom (might be injured), Weber (is injured), Barrie, Duchene, Dadonov, Voracek, JVR, Ghost, Schwartz, Hoffman, Zucker?

    Every time I look at the list, I find some new legit guys. Oh well.

    Yeah this is pitiful! Seems like he’s trying to be “cheap” and build a big man blueline. Fine and dandy but you need to score goals and they have no scorers.

    I feel something has to happen tonight but it maybe it doesn’t. Even the goalie picks had me shaking my head.

    Guess we’ll see how it goes but glad I couldn’t bet on SEA making the playoffs yet.

    i am a devout hockey fan and honestly i have never heard of most of the guys on this list.

    Amen man! They say Ron has a plan but I’m not so sure… seems like the NBA “trust the process”!

    Not expansion draft but FA is wild this year!!! And the Kraken make another baffling somewhat expensive move and sign Grubauer to a 6 year 35.4 mil deal. Are they gonna have 3 goalies, trade one or two, or have stacked AHL goalie pool?

    It is!

    I’m definitely interested to see what the Kraken will do now.

    Also, there was a whole lot of chatter on Habs’ first pick!

    Yeah I’m still confused at their approach but they at least have some “NHLer’s” now. Weird they want to “spend” on these guys though. Maybe they wanted longer term and not many guys had years left on their deal.

    And never good when the PM gets involved lol

    Saw that and should be interesting. She seems salty and I view this like Pete Rose. Don’t think a guy by himself can tank a hockey game. We’ll see how this plays out.
