That's my take as well.

Islanders, Habs or I'm even going to say Calgary is a darkhorse.

Best case scenario, IMO.

We aren't getting Hanifins and the like. Alternatives simply don't interest me. Load up on picks and bomb out next year.

But that sounds like -- dare I say it -- a rebuild!

You guys are a tad bit over the top with the pessimism. I don't see how any deal made so far throws a major wrench into any Duchene trade.

Yeah. Oh no, we try to do what we've attempted to do for the past 10 years. The horror.

The central is always fun. Chicago got worse on paper but their core might be revitalized with the "boys" coming back together in Sharp and Saad, Dallas has upgraded goaltending, defense, and forwards, The Blues made it to round two with Shatty and added Schenn, the Jets will get more youth development + Kulikov...the Preds are the ones standing pat (Neal out, Bonino in).

I think Sakic is going to stay as is. Which is a terrible idea, FWIW

One less contract to be tied to, one more roster spot for prospects, and one more piece of ammunition for the tank.

Also we will get some contracts in dw, we're only at like 27 now but hopefully it's just AHL depth.

I think he's just someone we've all talked about coming to Colorado for the past 5+ years, unfortunately nothing more (yet)

Yes, we still need a LHD and they are all gone already except the very old ones like Markov, Campbell and Beauchemin (lol).

Expansion team doesn't want to get hampered down with awful contracts?

Not shocking. Quite intelligent and par the course they've been on.

So glad that Kulikov signed with the Jets.

Like literally nothing? Not even some 2-way contract scrubs? Would be downright absurd but actually plausible with Idle Joe.

I'm happy Avs missed out on Kulikov. Nothing good to come from an Avs contract with him.

MacKenzie says we're one of the 3 finalist teams after Shattenkirk. (TSN)
