Offseason Prediction Thread

Hey everyone!

Since reading everyone's input and predictions is one of my favorite things to do here I figured I could make a thread to put that all in one place. Since this should be a big off-season it might be fun to come back and look if anyone was on to something here.

Just give your off season predictions if you would like.

Mods, if this needs to be placed somewhere else then I apologize and please direct me to where it should be!

Avs offseason Predictions:
1st round selection (4) -
2nd round selection (32) -
Duchene Trade return -
Biggest UFA signing -
Other trade predictions -

^ Lol if Joe Sakic turns from a potato into an actual GM then maybe HALF the moves in that post could happen.

I'm guessing that he is for sure going to sign one vet forward and one vet dman. I'm hoping the forward is Gagner just because he's reliable and on a cheap/short contract. I dunno if the vet dman however will come as cheap/short-term.

I know this isn't the place, but does anyone know where I could find that list of dates that has what all is coming up in the next week or two? I thought Friedman tweeted it but I couldn't find it. It was expansion/offseason deadline type stuff.

I would dance naked in the streets if we could get Slavin for Duchene. Let alone them adding a 2nd. Slavin>> Hanifin or anyone else even remotely available for Duchene right now. He is the kind of guy I would probably even do Slavin + #12 for Duchene + #4. Maybe even if you make their 1st a 2nd. Dude IMO has Norris potential. No way we pry him out of Carolina .

Also there unfortunately there is no way Valimaki makes it to 32. Would be surprised if he makes it to #15 (in my scenario I am assuming we get #15)


My predictions:

1st round selection:
(4) Glass (unfortunately)
(32) P-O-Joseph

Duchene trade:

DeHaan + Barzal + 1st

Biggest UFA signing:

Kulikov:
3 x 5 M

Not saying any of these are good trades/bad trades or that I like them etc. just predictions on what will happen this offseason.

1st round selection: Heiskanen

2nd round selection: traded (see Barrie trade)

Duchene, Bigras, 5th round pick to NYI for deHaan, Pulock, Barzal, 15th overall

UFA: I'm actually guessing were fairly quiet on the UFA front, but if I have to pick one maybe Del Zotto 2 year 3.5M per.

Other trades:

Barrie+32 to Edmonton for Eberle+Nurse

Landeskog+rights to Butcher to Boston for Zobril+DeBrusk+1st

Pickard to Calgary for Rasmus Andersson

Team looks like this at the start of next season:

Rantanen-MacK-Eberle
Barzal-Compher-Ghetto
Greer-Jost-Nieto
Grigorenko-Soderberg-Colborne

deHann-EJ
Nurse-Zadorov
Pullock-Barberio

Varly
Martin or UFA

That leaves Zobril, DeBrusk, Meloche, Beaudin, Morrison, Andersson #4 overall, #15 overall, #18 overall in the pipeline
