yeah this draft will have a lot of trades. rights will be traded, calgary will need a shake-up, flyers will look for a goalie, the hawks will dump salary..etc. it will be interesting for sure. and i think the islanders will be moving some peices too.
Not unless Briere and /or Hartnell gets moved. So probably next to impossible. Besides... Philly doesn't spend 5 million on goalies that are premier backstops, so what's the chances of them dealing for one that really hasn't outperformed Michael Leighton this year?
Should be interesting for Tampa for sure. If they don't end up with a top 2 pick I can see them moving their first to either drop further down and collect some extra picks or using it in a package to bring in a young top 6 guy and some other pieces.
Stamkos, Hedman, St. Louis and Downie are honestly the only current roster players I see as safe. Anyone else could potentially be up for grabs. It should be a busy day in Tampa that's for sure.
