I actually expect to see nothing happen over the summer. The AVs front office and coaching staff are already going through a shakeup that may not be over with yet. We also have the #1 overall pick (which most likely result in adding a dman who is ineligible for the AHL to a dcorp that already has six one-way contracts and two two-way contracts that should already be playing more nights than not.)

I just think that we won't see anything other than a trade moving out depth d-men to make room for the younger kids that have earned icetime already.

As far as the forwards...I wouldn't expect to see any major changes (and I would say that signing a top six forward is a major change) until after the new head-coach is hired and has a chance to evaluate the players we have and talk strategy with the GM.

I believe that after the draft we are going to experience a very painfully long, slow and boring summer.

Maybe we can start a book-club.
