i was thinking about making a thread for this, since technically this season is over. but then again don't want to get bombed for the idea thought. so i guess if want part or just ignore haha
play the GM game? what moves do you see the panthers making this offseason and what do you think the team looks like beginning next year?
Im thinking our forwards will be:
Mac, Flash, Steeger, Mueller, Huberdeau, Goc, Kopecky, Bergy, Matty, Skille, Shore, Howden, and either Weiss or a signing/trade. If we draft Drouin instead, I dont expect him to play in the NHL next year.
and on defense:
Soupy, Gudbranson, Kuli, Weaver, Petrovic, Brennan, and either Jovo or a signing/trade
In goal, Id like to see Theodore back, and get rid of Clemmensen, but who is going to take Clemmensen? Marky and Theodore is a much better than than Marky and Clemmensen.
I'm with pb1300 in thinking that Tallon secretly has his eyes on Drouin as his player.
I have no hard evidence for this.... just a gut feeling.
I'm pulling for MacKinnon, but if he's off the board at #1 and Panthers are up at #2, I wouldn't be shocked if Tallon tries to trade down to #3, lets someone else pick Jones (Colorado or Carolina)... and takes Drouin.
