Pretty much exactly what I thought, that team will feature basically 4 tweener 2nd/3rd lines and #4 defensemen. They won't be top heavy, but they'll sure compete and be a pain in the butt. That's good. For everyone, really.

Sounds like you can add Calgary on the Lucic sweepstakes. Sucks that it seems like he will be staying in the division

I wouldn't do that and I don't think Chiarelli will either. Draisatl is pretty much untouchable and for good reason.

Price too steep...

I think Nugent-Hopkins and/or Eberle will be moved or packaged for a defensemen


And I think I'd keep PK and ditch the coach if there is issues...

PK is a world class defenseman, and EDM can't just keep stockpiling young forwards.

I would strongly consider it if I'm EDM.

Yep. Edmonton needs a #1 d-man, and it's a crapshoot getting one through the draft, let alone development time.

If you can get a surefire #1 and still be left with a plethora of assets, I feel like you nearly have to.

Trade for PK, sign Lucic. Done.

And I say that knowing full well Draisaitl is a freaking monster, and could be a bigger monster being #2 behind McDavid. Personally, I'd even probably do Hall before Draisaitl. But potentialy elite forwards are a luxury Edmonton has.

The more I think about Subban to Edm it just doesn't make sense. Why would a team weak on defense move out a #1 dman for primarily two young forwards?

Rumor was lockeroom issues, players that don't like him and the lack of leadership displayed when Price went down and the team fell off a cliff.

I agree that world class defenman are hard to come by but the trade rumors have been out there all year and they come from somewhere.

I even heard Malkin for PK...but seems to be Edmonton is the frontrunner but asking price is still too high.

It's actually a horrible trade for both teams.

It shuts the Kings cup window and Toronto gives up 3 huge pieces of their future for a guy who will be in his 30's when they are ready to seriously contend.

I wonder. It seems like Edmonton could be this years version of the Avs/Flames, where the lucky stars will align for them so they make the playoffs and then return back to reality...

Elliotte Friedman ‏@FriedgeHNIC 14m14 minutes ago

Rumbling: FLA preparing eight-year, $60M-ish extension for Aaron Ekblad. He can sign any time after July 1. Team and agent decline comment.


that's a lot of pocket change for a 20 yr old...but in the long run, will save them money.

And considering what Yandle got...and how much more talented Eckblad is...


On the other hand, Horrid decision by Hexy...giving a goon on skates 3.5 per???? Brutal...As much as I was hoping he's be gone, Hexy loves him, his eyes lite up talking about him. Four more years of suffering thru the headhunter...

Tim Panaccio ‏@tpanotchCSN 11h11 hours ago

Gudas $13.4m over 4 yrs. Flyers overpaid.

Who knows 3 years from now, but I remember Dean saying nobody will be paid more than Kopitar during Drew's last contract negotiations.

Wrong. Kopitar's salary last season was $7.7 mill. Doughty has not gone over $7.1 mill yet.
