I don't really get the Oshie love, can someone explain why he is so good? He does have a decent contract though.

Physical(dude hits like a truck), speedy, skilled and good defensively. He's sort of an enigma, I thought he'd be capable of putting up more points but I'd still love him on this team.

More like this, IMO:

Vanek - MacKinnon - Patrick Kane
Hodgson - Grigorenko - Armia
Foligno - Girgensons - Flynn/Tropp

Edit: And yes, that line-up is good enough to win a cup, assuming the prospects turn out like they should.

I've watched a lot of Blues games and that is one thing is that he hits hard and seems to bring it every night, but I just don't know if the skill is there on offense.

He doesn't even have a 20 goal season.

I'd be for getting rid of Pominville since he's a crap captain, and Oshie does seem like a guy that would be good in the locker room...but I think Oshie is a tad overrated among HF.

A 1/2 punch of McDavid and MacKinnon is pretty appealing

I'd love Oshie. I don't see St. Louis dealing him, though.

I could see STL being interested in Regehr...or Weber.

Problem there is that not only is Hodgson right-handed, he's also pretty terrible at wing.

So is it a good thing or bad thing Miller is on the bench .

Truthfully with the way this shortened season is the Sabres really did pick a good time to fall apart. Seller's market and all

I imagine Steve Ott would be target as Hawks C's outside of Toews are laughably bad at faceoffs

Kruger at 45.3%
Bolland at 45%
Shaw under 45%

Don't think there is anyone else with a possibility of making the team.

Makes sense, price would be steep though.

Hodgson, Ennis, Myers, Ott.

Hodgson has a chance to make Canada

Price will make the team and Subban has a shot.

I don't see how Hodgson, Ennis, Myers or Ott would even be potential candidates for the team to be honest.
