Hey I have quick question.

How do you stop players from haunting your team after you traded them/let them go?

Like I still have Blake, Acton and Connolly still showing up on my ahl team roster but I don't have them in my organization anymore.

It gets annoying because I want my prospects to get playing time and I can't just use the "best lineup" feature because those guys keep taking up top the top lines.

The best way is to have an adequate number of players signed to populate your AHL squad. You'll need to have a minimum of 46 players under contract (I'd recommend more).

For example, I always have 11 centers (5 NHL, 6 AHL), 9 left wings (4 NHL, 5 AHL), 9 right wings (4 NHL, 5 AHL), 16 defensemen (8 NHL, 8 AHL), and 5 goaltenders (2 NHL, 3 AHL) and the only extra I have is a goaltender (can't avoid it unless you have 6 goalies signed or you play with injuries off).

If you have less than 46 guys signed or you don't have a good mix of positions, that's when you see your AHL team sign guys to fill roster spots, and they usually sign guys who were previously under contract with your team.

BLUE JACKETS HOT HEADING INTO HALFWAY POINT OF SEASON
January 7, 2020

The Blue Jackets are starting to recover from a rough start to the season, starting 10-17-7, but thanks to a 6-0-1 streak over the past 3 weeks, have clawed their way back to near parity. If they wish to make the playoffs, they'll need to continue to play well, as the cut-off for the playoffs in the Western Conference is currently projected to be 89 points, meaning the Blue Jackets will need to play well above .500 hockey (24-16-1 or equivalent) over the back half of the season to get in.

One of the key factors to the lack of success early in the season was sub-par goaltending. When the team won the Jennings trophy just a few short years ago, it was the goaltending that propelled them to the #1 seed in the Western Conference. Over the past couple of seasons, the goaltending has been the complete opposite, failing to provide stability to a team that still struggles to score much of the time.

On the positive side, a handful of Blue Jackets are having great years, led by Matt Calvert and Ryan Murray. Calvert is on pace for 34 goals and 72 points, which would be his best season by far, and Ryan Murray has a chance to crack the elusive 50-point mark, a benchmark for any offensive-minded defenseman. Jonathan Audy-Marchessault and Ryan Johansen are also having notable seasons, both on pace for in excess of 60 points.

Trade Deadline- "Domi A Shark"
The Mercury News
March 3rd, 2015
33-25-3
11th in West
Continued from here.

After having the same core for around five years, the rebuild in San Jose has finally begun, starting with shipping out centerman Joe Pavelski. Pavelski, 29, was sent to the Tampa Bay Lightning in a package deal for young centerman Max Domi and right-winger B.J. Crombeen. This deal marks a new era for the Sharks. "With this trade, we are beginning a new time period for the Sharks; I'm very confident that these deals will help us in the future", said GM Flamesrule. "Domi will be a huge part in this organization in the upcoming; we're very happy to have him join the team. He's everything we need in a player:grit, skill, toughness, strength, and good hockey sense."

However, Domi had a big price tag, and it showed in the trade. Pavelski was the only player going to the Lightning, Tommy Wingels, 2016 3rd round draft pick and prospect L.Cairns were going to Tampa Bay. "I'm very pleased to have Pavelski and Wingels join our team. Pavelski will slot into the 2nd line position while Wingels will be a great depth player", explained Steve Yzerman.

Another piece going to the Sharks is the Bruins 1st round draft pick and Rich Peverley. The Bruins are the 29th overall worst team in the league, so this deal makes total sense from a Sharks perspective. However, this also makes sense from a Bruins standpoint. With Chara most likely retiring next season, they need someone to replace him. Well, Brent Burns is that guy. Another piece going to the Bruins is the Sharks 2nd round draft pick.


Domi will join the Sharks next season.

TITAN BOUGHT

The Acadie-Bathurst Titan have found new owners. After the team saw the fans diminish over the past few years, not even totalling 1,000 fans for some games, it's time to move on. "It's hard to do this," said Léo-Guy Morrissette, the now former owner of the team. "I've been with the Titan for over a decade, and I love the people around the area. I wish good luck to the new owners, and all the best to the players on the team." The new ownership group consists of many former QMJHLers, who are now playing pro hockey. Sidney Crosby, Marc-André Fleury, and Ondrej Pavelec are just a few names that have been released. The rest of the list will be let out as soon as new management is named. Crosby was speaking for the group. "There is a lot of us," he told the media. "We came to an agreement that we wanted to all form together and purchase a team back a year ago, at a banquet dinner. We know this organization is considered a dump around the league, and this city deserves better. We are starting completely fresh. All staff members have been let go, and we wish them the best of luck. All players have also been dispersed throughout the league, and we will be receiving compensation later this summer. We will be hiring a staff soon, and the rest of the ownership group will soon be named."

As per my previous post... New Dynasty...

Philadelphia Flyers
First Season Cap Limit of 58.00 million
Using the Trade Block and Players being "Given" exclusively for deals
No more than Two First Rounders to avoid stacking my team
D - Chris Pronger will be moved to the AHL to simulate LTIR
------------------------------




Flyers name 19th Captain in Team History
After ousting the Penguins in Round 1 of the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs the Orange and Black had revived the thought of another 2010 deep playoff run. That however was short lived as the Flyers ran into the buzzsaw to the south New Jersey Devils who rode a hot streak right into the Stanley Cup Finals. The Flyers had again been left with a lot of questions and not a lot of answers. With the absence of Chris Pronger, Claude Giroux stepped up and assumed a leadership role on the team. Aside from the leadership, Claude stepped his game up to a level that propelled him from a Philadelphia secret to a national star. With the 2013 season upon us and Chris out indefinitely with concussion symptoms the Flyers have announced that Giroux will don the coveted "C" on his sweater this season.

Lots of questions still remain, with former Captain Mike Richard, and former Alternate Captain Jeff Carter winning a Stanley Cup with the LA Kings many question whether or not the Flyers have made some poor decisions. Ilya Bryzgalov has been nothing short of disappointing in net, and the Flyers appear further from a championship than anyone is willing to accept. Many have speculated that Flyers may distance themselves from some of the veterans on the roster and look to grow the young talent like Sean Couturier and Brayden Schenn. Others look at the team on the verge of another championship and a solid season from Bryzgalov being the only thing holding the team back.

With the preseason just beginning it appears that rumors have already swirled about players like Danny Briere and Matt Read being on the move. The lack of a true number one defensemen has definitely hampered the team, and the willingness to go "all-in" is reinforced by the 14 year contract offered to Nashville Predator Shea Weber. We anticipate there to be quite a bit of movement this season, and the expectations have done nothing but skyrocketed after last seasons memorable playoffs.

Offense Falls Apart Against Toronto

Don't even know what to say about this, but our best season ever got ruined in the second round by my most hated team, the Toronto Maple Leafs. Toronto was the 7th seed, and knocked us out in give games. We scored five goals on them. I don't usually write in first person, but there really isn't much to say about this series. Despite changes, our offense choked once again, and our playoff disappointment continues.

Game 1: 3-1 Maple Leafs Win
Game 2: 3-0 Maple Leafs Win

Game 3: 2-1 Panthers OT Win
(Nick Leddy scored GWG)

Game 4: 2-1 Maple Leafs Win
Game 5: 2-1 Maple Leafs Win



Stephen Weiss retired, and Toronto went on to win the cup.


EDIT: I've decided I am DONE with this franchise. Eight years ain't bad, better than I normally do.

Our overall record over those eight years was 365-241-50. We had one Stanley Cup, one Presidents' Trophy, three 2nd round losses, three 3rd round losses, and one year of not making the playoffs.

That was fun while it lasted, but once again basically all my players (even the ones with potential) didn't develop in the offseason except for Trocheck who jumped to 85. McDavid is STILL 87, which really pisses me off.

I'll be starting a new GM later tonight...

Canadiens Add Depth




Boyd Gordon

The Canadiens have once again made a splash in free agency. Today the habs inked veteran center Boyd Gordon formerly of the Phoenix Coyotes to a 2 year 1.7 annual cap hit and rugged enforcer Patrick Bordeleau. The two forwards bring 2 qualities that the habs desperately needed to add to the lineup, Gordon being a right handed faceoff specialist and Bordeleau brings a pure tough guy who loves to throw the body as much as his fists. Bordeleau's contract is speculated to be a 1 year deal, It is expected that both will play a depth role for the habs.

Is it possible to place a created player in the first draft class? Only options I see are pick a team, or free agency.

Edit: nvm figured it out

Start Your Engines





Canadiens Set Roster

The Montreal Canadiens made their final cuts on Sunday, sending Gabriel Dumont, Danny Kristo and Nathan Beaulieu to the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League. With injuries to Brian Gionta and Alexei Emelin to start the season it created certain holes in the lineup for perhaps a couple of surprise appearances to the lineup, at least to start the season. The good news was delivered to Louis LeBlanc early Monday morning that he would be in the home opener on Tuesday, "I couldn't be happier, last year was dreadful for me and this is the perfect way to show everybody in hockey that I have a lot to offer in the NHL". Michel Therrien would not confirm exact lines as of yet, but if line rushes at Monday mornings tell us anything, the opening night lineup will look like this;


Max Pacioretty - Lars Eller - Brendan Gallagher

Rene Bourque - Tomas Plekanec - Louis LeBlanc

Brandon Prust - Alex Galchenyuk - Viktor Stalberg

Travis Moen - Boyd Gordon - Ryan White


Josh Gorges - PK Subban

Andrei Markov - Erik Gudbransson

Jarred Tinordi - Raphael Diaz



EXTRAS: Patrick Bordeleau & Davis Drewiske

Martin Hanzal Traded; Sean Monahan Cracks NHL Roster

Rookie center had impressive preseason


Rookie center Sean Monahan has made the Phoenix Coyotes.

The Phoenix Coyotes have traded center Martin Hanzal to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Pittsburgh's 2nd round pick in this summer's Entry Draft. "Andy Miele and Sean Monahan had passed Martin, so we felt a deal was the best solution for both sides. We would like to thank Martin for his time with the team, and wish him nothing but the best with his new team" GM GreeningSingleLady said.

Rookie center Sean Monahan, selected 4th overall by the Coyotes this past summer, has made the NHL team after a solid preseason. Monahan scored 3 goals in 4 games, and displayed excellent 2-way play. "Sean impressed us greatly, so we feel he can step in to the NHL right away and make an impact" GSL said. Monahan will line up on the 2nd forward unit, with offseason signings Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Matt D'Agostini.

Here are your 2013-2014 Phoenix Coyotes:

Forwards
Radim Vrbata - Antoine Vermette - Shane Doan
Pierre-Marc Bouchard - Sean Monahan* - Matt D'Agostini
Mason Raymond - Andy Miele* - Mikkel Boedker
Alexander Frolov - Brandon McMillan - Brett Hextall*

Defencemen
Keith Yandle - Zbynek Michalek
David Rundblad - Oliver Ekman-Larsson
Derek Morris - Chris Summers*

Goalies
Mike Smith
Jason Labarbera

*denotes rookie skater. I'm not sure if Rundblad still qualifies as a rookie.

STAFF NAMED, OWNERS AS WELL, MORE CHANGES

Acadie-Bathurst has a new head coach, a general manager, two new assistant coaches, and a new head scout. The newest head coach of the Titan is Shawn Evans, formerly of the MHL's Truro Bearcats. Evans will also be the GM of the team. He brings along assistants Jason Malone, also from the MHL, but the Pictou County Weeks Crushers, as well as Fabian Joseph, who was recently let go by the Moncton Wildcats. The team's new head scout is Steve Crowell, and he came from Truro as well. "I'm very excited with this opportunity. I hope that Bathurst will become one of the most powerful franchises in the entire CHL, and I promise a winning team to the city in the not so distant future. I can't wait to start at the draft." Evans told the media.

The rest of the ownership group has been named as well. The full list of owners are:

Sidney Crosby, Marc-André Fleury, Ondrej Pavelec, Brad Marchand, François Beauchemin, Roberto Luongo, Jason Pominville, Daniel Briere, Stephane Robidas, Mike Ribeiro, Brad Richards, Vincent Lecavlier, Ryan Clowe, and Sean Couturier. "We have a solid group of men who have put together the whole direction of the team. We can't wait to get started."

In other news, every number that was retired in the past by Bathurst have been re-established, and available for use again. The team has retired every number the owners where, however. Retired numbers are as following:

#1 - Luongo
#3 - Robidas
#4 - Lecavlier
#7 - Couturier
#9 - Ribeiro
#19 - Richards
#23 - Beauchemin
#29 - Pominville, Clowe
#31 - Pavelec
#48 - Briere
#63 - Marchand
#87 - Crosby

Avalanche Ready to Begin Season, With Low Expectations


After finishing 7 points out of a playoff spot last year, the Colorado Avalanche aren't expecting much more this season. The one bright spot of the 2011-12 campaign was the play of rookie forward Gabriel Landeskog - who won the Calder Memorial Trophy. Even with a new coach, Patrick Roy, and a new GM, Deku Scrub, the Avalanche organization does not expect a return to the playoffs. Going into this season, their roster is severely lacking. It looks great down the middle (Duchene-Stastny-ROR-Mitchell), but besides the center position, their lineup is pretty bad. Their top-six forward group is abysmal, while the bottom-six group is decent. Their biggest problem, however, is their atrocious D-core. Former #1 overall pick Erik Johnson leads the way, but after him there is not much to see. Semyon Varlamov is also a question mark in goal. He has never had outstanding numbers in his career, so if the Avs have any hope of making the playoffs, he'll need to be near-perfect.


Prior to the start of pre-season, the Avs made two trades. Defenseman Shane O'Brien (nicknamed "Son of a *****" by fans) was shipped off to Winnipeg for a third round pick in the 2013 draft. GM Deku Scrub said "His $2.0M contract was way too much." SOB is 77 overall.

The other trade comprised of 30-year old forward Chuck Kobasew (78 overall) and 32-year old defenseman Greg Zanon (81 overall) going to Los Angeles in exchange for their first round pick in 2013. When asked about the trade, Deku Scrub said, "We don't need Kobasew, and Zanon shaved his beard so I had to get rid of him".

A few days later, 25-year old forward Tevor Lewis was claimed off waivers from LA.


2012-13 Lineup

Gabriel Landeskog (82) - Matt Duchene (85) P.A. Parenteau (82)
Milan Hejduk (78) - Paul Stastny (85) - Steve Downie (81)
Jamie McGinn (78) - Ryan O'Reilly (82) - David Jones (78)
Aaron Palushaj (75) - John Mitchell (74) - Trevor Lewis (73)

Tyson Barrie (74) - Erik Johnson (84)
Jan Hejda (81) - Stefan Elliott (74)
Matt Hunwick (76) - Ryan Wilson (76)

Semyon Varlamov (81) - J.S. Giguere (76)


When GM Deku Scrub was asked about possible moves that he might make, he stated that Paul Stastny is on the trading block. This is likely due to the emergence of Matt Duchene, and the potential of Ryan O'Reilly to be a top-six forward. He also stated "We need defense."

In the 2nd round, the Winnipeg Jets gave us a fit, but team work and great play from our offensive leaders Semin and Kovalchuk enabled us to reach the 3rd round for the 3rd time in as many years over this franchise. Stefan Matteau's hat-trick in game two was the highlight of this series. We beat the Jets in 6.

Unfortunately, they managed to injure yet another one of our forwards, last year's Conn Smythe winner Adam Henrique, who will be out for the duration of the playoffs. That means him, Chiasson and Miller are out for this year. It will be a great experience for Matteau, Da Costa and Josefson who have all played very well so far.

In the 3rd round, great stoyline emerges as the NJ Devils wil face their arch ennemies, the NY Rangers who got rid of the Bolts in 4. Ryan Callahan will face the team he once captained. This should be a good one, perhaps the best series out of this franchise so far.

2012-13 Season Goes as Expected
Avalanche Finish Dead Last in NHL




When asked about his team's performance in the 2012-13 campaign, Colorado's general manger was rather blunt.


"Let's be honest," said GM Deku Scrub, "Are any of you surprised?"


*long pause*


"We suck. You know it. He knows it. She knows it. I know he knows it," he said, pointing to various reporters around the room. "We just gotta look to the future. This is not a good team right now. No offense to the players, but this team just isn't built well. I'm going to do the best I can to return this team to the playoffs, and hopefully the Stanley Cup. But it's probably gonna take a while."


When asked what he thought about rookie coach Patrick Roy's performance, Mr. Scrub had nothing but praise for him. "I was impressed," he said. "He didn't have much to work with, but he still got us 32 wins. He was fine this year... our poor record wasn't his fault."


Colorado finished with a record of 32-44-6. This gave them 70 points, the lowest of all teams in the NHL. Their goals against per game killed them - it was the worst in the league at 2.89. Their powerplay was also atrocious. Paul Stastny was disappointing, only scoring 39 points on the second line. Rumors are spreading that he could be on his way out of Denver this summer.

2015 NHL Entry Draft- Draft Brings Wonders for Sharks Organization
The Mercury News
June 29, 2015
Continued from here.

The words that came out of GM Flamesrule's mouth gave everyone in San Jose a jitter:"And with the 2nd overall pick at the 2015 NHL entry draft, I am very happy to select left-winger Igor Vorobiev." Then, GM Flamesrule came back up to the podium again to select yet another player."And with the 3rd overall draft pick, I am happy to select defenseman Yannik Sbuev." The crowd erupted with oo's and aa's. "Vorobiev is a franchise player, who will definitely be playing for our minor club. Not only do I think he'll be good, but I think mhe will be the face of our franchise in the upcoming years. With the 3rd overall pick, Sbuev is more of a safe pick, but an explosive one at the same time. Sbuev is a great defensive dman, who will be an amazing top four defenseman in his career. I am very confident with the players I selected this draft. When people talk about this draft 10 years from now, these will be the two players that will be remembered, and I'm sure of it."

Now, you may be wondering how the Sharks received two top 5 picks. Well, the Boston's 1st rounder became the 2nd overall pick(they lost the lottery), while the Sharks traded up to get the 3rd overall pick. In the deal, Patrick Marleau was traded to the Florida Panthers for the 11th overall pick. Then, GM Flamesrule traded the Sharks' 13th and 11th overall to get into the top 5.



The 2015 NHL draft took place in Montreal, Quebec.

The NY Rangers have an awesome machine running and they played very well in this matchup. They went up 3-0 in the series and also injured Steen and Da Costa from us, effectively bringing our forward corps to ashes. Sadly, we were able to win the next 2 but eventually lost at the MSG. The Rangers went on to win the Stanley Cup against the Blues.

All in all, those were three solid seasons for the Devils. Two 3rd round losses and one Stanley Cup win over Edmonton. Memorable moments. I have decided to re-sign with the team for 5 years, so let's bring in more cups! This summer should be quite interesting as we might have seen the last of Kovalchuk with this squad.

Yeah, I would've kept going if McDavid and Seikola got better, but they stayed the same and I'm tired of McDavid only being 87 overall. Laakso also stayed at 86. Ekblad still at 88 as well. Was getting bored, too. I'll try to go far in this Colorado GM!

Nice draft btw. Interested to see the overalls/potential of the guys you took at #2 and #3!




Huge Draft Day for Avalanche
Avs Select 1st Overall, Make Two Big Trades




Luckily for the Avalanche, they did not lose the NHL draft lottery as the Columbus Blue Jackets did last year. As expected, with the 1st overall pick, they selected 18-year old defenseman Seth Jones. He is the first African-american player to be taken 1st overall, and is expected to be a franchise defender.


The way the rest of the top-10 played out was not particularly surprising, besides that Nathan Mackinnon slipped to the 4th overall selection, into the hands of the earlier mentioned Blue Jackets. He was expected to go 2nd overall, but Dallas preferred Jonathan Drouin, and Calgary chose young center Tomas Repik from the Czech Republic.


Here are the top 10 selections of the 2013 draft:

1st overall (Colorado) - D Seth Jones (77 overall, 4.5 green stars, 18 years old)
2nd overall (Dallas) - LW Jonathan Drouin (60 overall, 4.5 yellow stars, 18 years old)
3rd overall (Calgary) - C Tomas Repik (80 overall, 4.5 green stars, 18 years old)
4th overall (Columbus) - C Nathan Mackinnon (62 overall, 4.5 green stars, 17 years old)
5th overall (NYI) - C Sean Monahan (72 overall, 4.5 yellow stars, 18 years old)
6th overall (Montreal) - LW Hunter Shinkaruk (62 overall, 4.5 yellow stars, 18 years old)
7th overall (Phoenix) - LW Anthony Mantha (67 overall, 4.5 yellow stars, 18 years old)
8th overall (Tampa Bay) - D Darnell Nurse (72 overall, 4 green stars, 18 years old)
9th overall (St Louis) - D Ryan Pulock (59 overall, 4.5 yellow stars, 18 years old)
10th overall (Minnesota) - C Alex Barkov (57 overall, 4 yellow stars, 17 years old)



The Avalanche also owned the 22nd overall pick, which they received in a trade from the Kings before the 2012-13 season. They selected offensive defenseman Josh Morrissey from Prince Albert of the WHL. Morrissey is 54 overall, 18 years old, and has 4 yellow stars.


Colorado did not have a 2nd round pick, but owned three third round picks. Here are the rest of the Avalanche's selections:

61st overall: RW Mitch Holmberg (58 overall, 3.5 yellow stars, 20 years old)
70th overall: G Jacob Gervais-Chouinard (57 overall, 3.5 yellow stars, 21 years old)
71st overall: D Tommy Stenqvist (52 overall, 3.5 yellow stars, 18 years old)
4th round: LW Michael Curtis (54 overall, 3.5 yellow stars, 20 years old)
5th round: D Taylor Green (50 overall, 3.5 yellow stars, 18 years old)
6th round: D Matt Petgrave (58 overall, 2.5 yellow stars, 21 years old)
7th round: RW Cody McNaughton (65 overall, 2.5 yellow stars, 20 years old)



As well as acquiring many solid prospects through the draft, the Avalanche also made two rather large trades. First, with the Montreal Canadiens, then with the Detroit Red Wings.


1st Trade



RW Steve Downie (82 overall, 4 yellow stars, 25 years old)
G J.S. Giguere (35 years old, 79 overall)





RW Sebastian Collberg (59 overall, 4.5 red stars, 19 years old)


2nd Trade



C Paul Stastny (84 overall, 27 years old)




2014 1st Round Pick

Minnesota Wild


Into the WILD


As the unfortunate season of 2011-2012 ends a new begins, the Minnesota Wild are exited to enter the next chapter of hockey with the continuing guidance of upper management and the players of the Wild franchise.

With pre-season soon approaching the Wild are expected to hopefully start the way they did at the start of the previous season with Koivu back at full health.

The young prospects Mikael Grandlund and Charlie Coyle will also be inserted to the lineup along side the big summer FA splashes of Zach Parise, an excellent force on the left side, who just recently came back from the Stanley Cup finals and Ryan Suter, strong poised stay at home defender with over average offensive capabilities the Minnesota Wild are expecting great things to come from this season.


*Pre-Season trades

To WSH:
Tom Gilbert
Ralphael Bussieres
3rd 2014

To MIN:
Mike Green

We feel with the diminished value of M. Green now would be a good time to have him join the Wild and hopefully change the pace of his current game while sending the big framed Tom Gilbert as well as a long shot prospect and our 3rd round pick in 2013.

To NJD:
1st 2013
J.Zucker

To MIN:
1st 2013

To PHX:
1st 2013
Scandella
3rd 2013

To MIN:
1st 2013


The Line Up


(*Latest update, Pominville added)

Z.Parise / M.Koivu / J.Pominville

D.Heatley / P.Bouchard / C.Coyle

M.Cullen / M.Grandlund / D.Setoguchi

C.Clutterbuck / K.Brodziak / T.Mitchell

R.Suter / M.Green

J.Spurgeon / J.Brodin

C.Stoner / B.Clark

N.Backstrom

Winnipeg looks to re-group after coming up short in Stanley Cup Finals. Starts Off-Season with a Bang moving up in Draft and Drafting highly Touted Alex Tkachuk 6th Overall!


Firstly, we'd like to give a shutout and thank you to Jay McClement and Rob Scuderi who served us well in the year that they were here, helping us get to the Finals. Jay and Rob retired this season. We're also excited for our own Top Forward Mark Scheifele as he took home the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy at the NHL Awards. Great job, Mark!

Now onto the Draft. We traded a plethora of picks, our 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th and 7th to Detroit for there 1st Round 6th Overall pick in Hopes that American Born Pure Sniper Alex Tkachuk was still there. We had him high on our lists and wanted to try and pick him up anyway we could. He lead USA at the World Juniors this year as the Captain and lead the tournament in points with 18.


Alex Tkachuk going in to 'Snipe' a Goal!

We drafted him 6th Overall as Mentioned, he is already at a great size at 6'4" and is 19, a Right-Handed shot. He is the Son of former NHL player Keith Tkachuk. Another cool nugget of wisdom about this is that Keith Tkachuk was Drafted into the NHL by the Old Winnipeg Jets, in 1990, 19th Overall. So we had to continue the family legacy.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keith_Tkachuk

Alex is already 71 Overall, with 4 Stars of Potential, and already has an NHL Caliber shot at 4 1/2 stars. We're going to keep him in high hopes in this organization!

Now onto the Off-Season Additions/Subtractions:

Re-Signings:

Jason Gregiore - 1 Year(s) - $1,800,000.
Paul Postma - 1 Year(s) - $2,500,000.
Andrew Ladd - 1 Year(s) - $3,000,000.
Stephen Weiss - 2 Year(s) - $3,000,000.
Dustin Byfuglien - 4 Year(s) - $5,850,000.
Mark Scheifele - 2 Year(s) - $6,000,000.


Free Agent Signings:


Dominic Moore - 1 Year(s) - $1,300,000.
Scott Hannah - 1 Year(s) - $2,000,000.

We tried to get Byfuglien and Scheifele longer but only could get what we got. I was comfortable signing Weiss to a longer extension as he's played great for us and it just wouldn't be right to let Ladd go, even though he under performed last year. Postma and Gregoire have been nice Depth players for us. Dominic Moore will be taking on the Role of "4th Line Center Grinder" continuing on the legacy after Manny Malholtra and Jay McClement did so. Hannah is a 3rd pairing Defenceman with Postma. No trades to announce other than Trading a Goalie for a Pick so I could sign another Goalie Prospect in Free Agency. Not an overly active off-season but it still had it's importance.

Here are your 2016-17 Winnipeg Jets:


*(Kindof a new look, if Neal doesn't keep up with his Line-Mates Ryan's ready to jump up)*

Evander Kane (86 Overall) - Mark Scheifele (88 Overall) - James Neal (85 Overall)
Jason Gregoire (80 Overall) - Stephen Weiss (83 Overall) - Bobby Ryan (85 Overall)
Andrew Ladd (81 Overall) 'C' - Jack Connolly (80 Overall) - David Backes (83 Overall)
Patrice Cormier (79 Overall) - Dominic Moore (78 Overall) - Levi Cable (79 Overall)

I want to try out Gregoire on that 2nd line, top 6, becuase he has a great shot and see if he can score off assists from Weiss and Ryan or whoever else.

Tobias Enstrom (83 Overall) 'A' - Dustin Byfuglien (87 Overall) 'A'
Marc Stall (85 Overall) - Zach Bogosian (86 Overall)
Scott Hannah (80 Overall) - Paul Postma (81 Overall)

Staal and Postma both dropped by 1 Overall but still good players.

Ryan Miller (88 Overall) - Chris Carrozzi (82 Overall)

Miller went back up from 86 to 88, great to see. He's soon turning 36.

I'd say we're set. I have my eye on 1 guy though. Chris Kreider. He is currently an RFA right now and I have the Picks to Sign him but not Cap Space. He is on the Lighning and they can't afford it so it almost all works out. He's asking for upwards of $6,000,000 though.. I'd have to Trade off Backes and Ladd to get Kreider. He is 85 Overall, 4 stars, 25 years old. Any input?

Also, here is the AHL Club. Your 2016-17 Saint John Ice Caps:

Ivan Telegin (79 Overall) - Ben Maxwell (75 Overall) 'A' - Carl Klingberg (78 Overall) 'A'
Adam Lowry (74 Overall) - Hunter Shinkaruk (71 Overall) - Alex Tkachuk (71 Overall)
Dale Godfrey (63 Overall) - Curtis Lazar (68 Overall) - Cedric Brust (69 Overall)
Petr Stefan (61 Overall) - Lukas Sutter (68 Overall) - Scott Kosmachuk (68 Overall)

Oscar Eklund (78 Overall) - Colton Bobyk (79 Overall)
Chad Billins (76 Overall) - Zach Redmond (75 Overall) 'C'
Connor Murphy (73 Overall) - Ryan Pulock (69 Overall)

Eddie Pasquale (81 Overall) - Mackenzie Snapski (64 Overall)

SEASON 5 STARTS NOW.

I'd keep Ladd and Backes, always great to have depth.

Tkachuk looks great by the way, nice pick-up.
