Many Deals Are Rumored to Have Been Already Completed

per the Ek man

Quote:
Hockey Buzz Eklund @Eklund 15m
Also...sources believe that a few deals have already been made tonight but the NHL wants them announced at the draft...so there's that..
Quote:
Hockey Buzz Eklund @Eklund 14m
I believe Neil could very well be one of those deals...
Quote:

Yes... Sorry autocorrect got me... James Neal
I actually really believe that the first point has some merit to it. There's been lots of activity all week: a trade Monday (Harntell), some big signings all week (Markov etc.), a second trade consummated yesterday (Nikitin to Edmonton), more important signings (Callahan, Gaborik) and then today...nothing save for a handful of RFA re-signings by Ottawa.

I'm sure Florida has already decided what they're going to do with their pick (I predict it'll go to Vancouver), but they will wait to announce it as soon as they get to the podium.

I like the idea of this (can't believe I'm saying that in an Eklund thread...) but I've got to believe that something would definitely leak if a bunch of trades were already completed.

I believe that there are UFA deals in place. The NHL and teams just wan to wait until July 1st to announce the signings lol

See I can do it too.


So if there is only one deal at the draft, Eklund will say see I told you so lol.

I think Florida has made the decision, but I don't think they have let anyone know if they are going to complete the deal. I believe Tallon was being genuine when he said he would sleep on the deal, I'm guessing his mind is made up, but he wants to give teams one last chance to outbid the top bidder and he doesn't want the deal leaking before it is time.

BS, Trades would be done and announced now if they happen. No UFA can sign before July 1st however.

So basically Eklund is just saying something we already pretty much know? Not exactly surprising that a few deals have probably already been made. The GMs are likely just waiting to have them announced at the draft to make it more exciting.

Aren't they only allowed to gauge interest? I didn't think contracts could be agreed to until July 1st.

I do get what you are saying about Eklund though.

Here is what happened in the 2 days before the draft last year:

In short, nothing. So Eklund's theory may be right that the NHL wants the deals for draft day.

Actually no.

The canucks traded schneider AT the draft, but had the deal done and completed with the NJD the day before.

More like Eklund was watching the NBA draft and came up with this bright idea for the NHL

Eklund is saying nothing new

every year trades are done the night before and the teams wait till the draft to Announce them--it makes for better showing

Even though it's Eklund, I'm nervous about seeing him throw out Nealer's name. I would be fine with trading him for the right deal, but I'm worried about what the Pens see as the right deal.

He's a highly skilled, but a dirty player. I'd trade him.

I could see something like Burrows being traded. It's just like last year though. No one exactly knew Schneider was being traded, but BAM it happened. We all thought it was Lalongo.

It also makes sense from the perspective that the deals for higher draft picks are "contingent" on a player being available that the team for the pick is still available.

Also, Bettman loves to get up and announce "We have a trade!" And honestly, it's probably in the GM's interest to do this stuff at the draft. More action means more viewers, which is higher ratings, which means higher prices in the future for the 1st round TV deal.
