Absolutely a Kadri, Romanov and Dobson signing + cap clearing move


I’m just waiting to see who signs the real big ticket UFA; Evan “1C” Rodrigues

I’m still holding out that the Sharks make multiple moves and somehow sign him. That somehow the Sharks are the ones that take on Beau.

Or it’ll probably be no Evan and the Sharks trade for Bailey just “because”. Lol either way we’re all waiting on dinosaur Lou.. as I think a few teams will follow suit and do something after Lou and xyz team make their moves.

Same with Toronto as if we move Kerfoot and Holl we can give him a 2-2.5mill deal

I don’t see ERod taking 2.5 unless he’s desperate (and he rightfully could be).

I think other teams have definitely offered 3+ But that term is iffy. If SJS (just my own team so that it’s my own opinion) - I wouldn’t offer more than 3y and anything over 4m is scary. He’s probably trying to get 4m but if anyone can get him at 3m I think it’s a great deal.

2.5m x 2 seems too poor as he’s looking for a clear payday as this could be his only chance.

I will take the Analytics team, if you go second you get all the other best players in the world. Matthews, McDavid etc. are still the best analytical players in the world.


True so snake draft after the Champs. I want the reigning Champs only.

I wouldn’t want him for more than 2 years or 2mil, and a 2x2 is sketchy. He’s been an okay 4th liner for his entire career, with the random exception of 30 games. His last 50 games last year he had like 12 points. That’s not the type of player you give term or big money to.

Changes per situation tho, Arizona or **** teams don’t need to worry. The Sens or Flames for example should never touch erod (and Toronto) over 2.5 but the player definitely wants
3 I would say. He was a major part in sustaining the Pens and he played well in the playoffs to add.

I agree it’s a hugely sketchy situation which is why it’s taking so long for him to sign but some teams can afford the risk. Arizona is the best situation for him like someone else earlier pointed out.

I like most of the people I tend to come across here but can you do an old guy a favour? When we are taking about all time great players I keep noticing over and over “there were only 6 teams and more people play hockey now.” “Players back then weren’t in great shape and they had second jobs.”

Other nonsense is also uttered to dismiss anything that happened before the internet existed. It’s stupid for one major reason, obviously athletes today are in better shape and use better equipment than athletes from yesteryear. That’s never been debated. It’s like saying phones today are superior to Alexander Graham Bell’s day… well no poop Sherlock! It doesn’t make Alexander Graham Bell less important because apple today makes a fancy phone. It doesn’t make Gordie Howe a has been because Connor McDavid has a better training regiment

Hey all I’m saying is Hasek was a notable omission!
Most of your list made sense.

Per Weekes-
“I can’t put a definitive timeline to them, but I wouldn’t be shocked to see at least 4 transactions with the
NYIslanders coming down the line.”

andrewladd db1899 (gotta people like Weekes obvi)

Lou bouta throw a grenade in the room and lock the door.


THAT WOULD BE VERY SPICY

Would certainly make up for them not doing sh*t for past month+
