<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>CD282</b></div><div>I see you have Schaefer on the roster. Do you think there's a possibility he makes the NHL club this year? I figured him to be more of a long-term project.</div></div>

It could potentially be Egor Afanasyev over Schaefer... I guess it would come down to who was producing better in the AHL.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>JKCpp</b></div><div>Oilers got bjugstad at 50% retained for a 3rd round pick I don’t think the oilers do this if they do it’s gonna be 5th round pick at most in my opinion</div></div>

I figured the 3rd because his cap is still only $850,000... and that should be digestible for any team come trade deadline. We could split the difference and say forth.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>jfkst1</b></div><div>Novak would definitely have to be performing well again this season. He had everything go right last season. He's also an extremely late bloomer which might mean his best is yet to come, or last season is a complete anomaly.</div></div>

It could come down to last season being the anomaly, and he is a 30-40pt per season player period. Being this is likely his first and only real payday, I'm sure he is going to be motivated to put up numbers which would justify him being worth the 1st.

I could honestly see it that Nashville's season results will be 100% reflective on how Novak does. If Novak continues his breakout, Nashville could be in contention. If he regresses, then so does the team as a whole. Time will tell I guess.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>HockeyScotty</b></div><div>I assumed since they extended him that he fits in their future plans while Fabbro doesn't (lots of trade speculation since the deadline).</div></div>

With the extension they gave him, it is more of a 'Prove It' year than anything being he'll now be a UFA after this season. Both Fabbro and Carrier have trade speculation around them as those 2, along with Lauzon... one of them starts the season as a scratch.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>AEcho</b></div><div>There is some weird push from some NSH fans that say he isn't that good because he isn't the top D man to pair with Josi they thought he was, so some people might say a 2nd or 3rd, but realistically the lowest NSH would probably go, for a single pick, would be a high to mid 2nd round pick for Fabbro. Given where COL is likely to end up, a low first round pick is about right especially considering NSH needs to take on MacDermid to make the money work. As you said, he is a really solid 2-way D who is top 4 for most teams. NSH has just been blessed to be a D production powerhouse over the last 10-15 years and fans have grown accustom to it.</div></div>

This is pretty spot on for the value of Fabbro in my eyes. Being an RFA still provides some control to a team who acquires him. I would say Carrier's value would be 1 round less. Mid-Low 2nd round or high 3rd.

But as it goes for either player, once the season starts and they do show the upside that they supposedly have, the values will only go up.
