    Just do a reverse draft order based on each teams average point totals since the cap era began :D

    P.A. Parenteau retired.

    Not big news, but also can respect a guy who stuck with it. Took him 10 years post-draft to become an NHLer regular.

    I bet part of that is Karlsson wants out. That is what I am hearing, not that I am connected, but it is partly reported in NA and murmurs in Swe.

    The amount of scrutiny we get as a city and how we are the 'least favorite spot for players to play in', and this crap coming out of Ottawa should remind us how lucky we have it that we don't have this kind of baggage to deal with. If anything after this, Ottawa will now be the 'Least Favorite place to play in'.

    Did I just curse Texas by watching? They look terrible.

    Gotta stop. Can't risk seeing more Sparks happy tears.

    Denis Guryanov a healthy scratch for Texas. Things not going well for him so far.

    The Calder Cup is now more prestigious than the Stanley Cup.

    A guy I'm a still a little annoyed they didn't sign last year. He likely could have been gotten for under 2 million and would have more or less brought the same elements as Eberle. Truth be told a little more, as he did have a bit of an edge to his game

    Actually if you go back to October, he would have fit the roster somewhat well.

    Maroon-McDavid-Draisaitl
    Lucic-RNH-PAP
    Caggiula-Strome-Yama/Slepy/Pulju
    Jokinen-Letestu-Pakarinen

    Good to see former Oil King Head Coach Derek Laxdal doing well and getting his team to the finals.

    As a FYI Texas is who the Oiler tried to replicate years ago for their AHL club. Bring in vets in key positions to shelter their young players and have a winning environment.

    They have McKenna there this year and Peters last year just in case their young prospect Bow can't hack it.

    Ottawa is so beyond screwed. This offseason is shaping up to be a disaster for them. And next season theres a good chance that their 1st round pick is 1st overall, which they will lose to the avalanche.

    I know the optics are horrendous but I really think the right move is to give up their pick this year.

    That team is in a world of hurt. Might as well rip the bandaid off, get as much as you can for Karlsson, and buckle down for rebuild.

    I'll chalk up a W for Chayka when his moves actually start resulting in some wins.

    Granted I do think Montreal should have received more than Domi for Galchenyuk but it's Bergevin so not surprising.

    imo, this is a sign they're going big whale hunting. Watch out Islanders.

    The problem is even if they finish last the odds are still slightly under 50% the pick will end up worse than this one. The lottery takes control away from them. And if Montreal does pass on Zadina they’ll get the third best prospect in the draft this year. The odds on giving up one of the top two next year is only like 35%

    Not all drafts are equal though.

    Dahlin and Svechnikov seem to be on another level with the rest somewhat clustered 3-10 or so based on team need and preference.

    I feel like they'll be bad enough to ensure they pick a Zadina calibre player with their pick next year with the chance of winning the lottery and getting a player like Jack Hughes.

    Wonder if the Flames have to hire professional "sitters" to "sit" at their draft table for the first few rounds....
