I would agree, although I don't like him in the division. I think he is a dirty player that has attempted to injure other players in the past with questionable hits.

Unless Francis is going to REALLY big, that should shut the door on Duchene to Carolina.

Yeah Brent Burns stays fantasy relevant then.

Alzner to Montreal isn't a terrible contract. Vancouver got nillson, burmi and gagner.

It will be interesting to keep an eye on Boston if they in fact sign Shattenkirk, a RHD, to a long term contract.

Based on the playoffs McAvoy, another RHD, seems poised to play 20+ minutes per game early in his career.

Does Colorado try to circle back on Carlo in that case? Is Boston more receptive due to having two bigger minute RHDs ahead of him for the foreseeable future?

RHD does not seem like a pressing issue for the Avs after the draft, but they did reportedly like Carlo at one point. I am not sure that having an overabundance of RHDs (both players and prospects) is an issue due to the value that RHDs seem to have around the league.

I would absolutely love to hear Joe Sakic's pitch to prospective free agents.

At this point I don't think it matters much, idle Joe wants something he won't get. No problems Matty can come back its no big deal that wet have been dangling him around for over a year

Joe: Denver is nice. We have pot. Media is absent so you won't be bothered if you suck. We have veteran respect. We will give you more term and $ than you need even if you have shown signs of steep decline. I really liked your game while I was playing.

Did I miss anything?

Shattenkirk 4 year 6.9AAV to the rangers as per Kevin Weeks.

AAV seems high but I actually think it's fair considering the 4 year term.

Absolutely ridiculous contract to Shatty right out of the gates.

This is going to be hilarious.

FA Frenzy isn't nearly as fun as it used to be with the early signing window.

So, in a day or two, Duchene's contract will look great in comparison?
And the suitors will be making incredible offers?

right?

why in day or two? Duchene can be traded in the next hour or so.
