Reinhart might not even be able to make Vegas.. may not be that attractive to them since they can't send him down.

Quite a few good d available to vegas.

That's a great point. With Reinhart and JJ, if LV sent either to the minors, would they have to clear waivers?

I personally think they try and sign Pitlick to a contract, and if he agrees he will be their pick from us.

In many ways this is a move that hurts us the most. I have been a Pitlick fan from day one. Complete nhl package skating, IQ/positioning, size, grit, shot, play making... has played center...everything.

Only thing that has held him back is injuries.

If Eberle gets moved, and he should be for cap relief, Pitlick would have a golden opportunity to take the next step... as long as he can stay healthy.

That's like saying winter would be nice in Edmonton if it didn't snow, unfortunately.

I have to laugh at Garth Milbury lol because you just know he is now going to flip Hamonic for Galchenyuk , and that trade will be De Haan a 1st and Hamonic for Galchenyuk when he could of moved out a dman before expansion and went 7-3-1 leving DeHaan exposed and not pay extortion fee

Even if healthy Pitlick is not going to replace Eberle's production.

Agreed them signing pitlick would be the biggest blow, because after last season he gives hope that he could be a great depth player who can play throughout the lineup and put up goals, but as someone else said the hope of him staying healthy for a full season is growing smaller and smaller.

If I'm chia though I'm on the phone seeing where are first rounder plus gets us on Dumba, would be a huge add for our team and it was rumored yesterday that Minnesota has no deal in place yet, with no first for them this year and vegas wanting picks some team will get lucky

So with the floor at 55mil and with teams probably swinging deals with Vegas to avoid certain players, they will probably already have a number of low cap hit guys....hopefully they take Pouliot and his 4.0m cap hit.

No, but better than losing both. Even as unlikely as it is that Pitlick stays healthy.

Pitlick would have been a hell of a player if he didn't lose so much development time to injury. Even with all that time missed he still is a bottom six NHLer.

Yes. THat's why it's expected that VGK will flip several of their players for draft picks.

Pitlick's style of play is the reason he's always unhealthy. As much as I like the guy and everything, we would be lucky if Vegas take shim. I don't see him playing very many games for the Oilers due to his being so extremely injury prone.

Khaira without a second of hesitation.

Reinhart is trash, if you're going to take a ****** contract, you can do better than Pouliot with what's out there, and Brossoit is bottom of the list of goalies available.
