<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Db1899</b></div><div>I’ve been a big fan of Salo for a while. Isles fans overrate Bolduc, Salo is the better prospect and I don’t think it’s that close. He doesn’t make mistakes and he can make plays in all 3 zones. If he earns a spot Trotz better play him over Greene.

Ross played well but Cizikas and Clutter were driving play at a high level. Ross should play in the AHL this season, there’s no room for him on the roster

Raty needs to work on his skating but his puck skills and hockey sense are elite. I think he’ll be a great 2C In 2-3 years.

I don’t think Holmstrom ever makes the NHL. Not just based on last night, he’s just shown nothing over the past two years. What an awful pick. Tomasino was right there , i thought for sure he was the pick. I actually think Lou’s drafting has been pretty good otherwise so I just don’t understand wtf he was thinking there. Bolduc, jefferies, Dufour, Newkirk, Raty, Malinen all seem to have NHL futures which isn’t bad for 3 years of drafting, 2 without a 1st</div></div>

Agree.

Of course, but for the first (?) time he looked like he could play on someones 4th line. But yeah, theres to much competition for him.

Exactly, and I believe management and him recognizes that, I am very confident in his potential, already looks pretty mature, very lucky and good pick.

Yeah, I don’t know wtf the thinking was there, they also reached a lot to pick him… in a season Holmström barely played due to injury as well. I was sure they would take Tomasino or McMichael, especially due to the lack of natural C prospects in the system. I don’t see Iskhakov having a chance at C in NHL and Koivula was forced into that role rather being an centerman naturally. Extremely weird pick all over.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Db1899</b></div><div>Lindholm probably wants at least 8 mill. I highly doubt Pulock gets 6.5 , more like 7.5-8. I’d rather not bridge Dobson. It would be nice to lock up a young player long term.

Agreed on Bailey. Hopefully Golyshev replaces him.</div></div>

Yeah he probably wants 8 mil, but I doubt he gets it, if he’s not having a massive offensive breakout, we both know as a defenseman you get paid the big dollars based on a lot of points, look at Adam Pelech compared to Darnell Nurse. Good for us in that case.

I’m not to sure about Pulock either, remember how strongly he felt about keeping the group together and how he talked to Barzal about it. I actually think Parayko’s deal is the deal Lou sees as the best comparison for him and I don’t think Pulock will demand a lot more, especially considering Pelech’s deal this summer. I don’t think it looks good to Pelech either if Pulock got 8, almost 2.3 mil more than him, it would be to put him pretty much above him in status. Look at the Boston model after Bergeron, we kinda have it with Lee also, obviously Barzal will get more than 7, but I’m not sure many else will, by Lou it feels like the Captain - ”the most important player” should earn the best…

I don’t want to bridge Dobson either, much like the Sorokin signing this year, but I doubt Dobson want to do a Klingberg deal, even though, ironically Klingberg will be rewarded after his prime heavily next year.
