Haha. Yeah, I think Eaves would be a nice fit to let Coyle move back to center.
There was some chatter about Jannik Hansen today, but yuck.

That's a nice circumvention with Bishop as a UFA. Smart thinking for TB. Thanks for bringing it up

My favorite part about this expansion draft is that the NHL said "everything has to pass the smell test" and then openly admitted that Vegas will be doing a bunch of backroom deals before the paperwork has gone through.
5:57
There will be a bunch of head-scratching decisions by the Vegas club that will be answered later.

Would Spooner and a first round pick get Landeskog?
Gavin Lee
5:57
Yes, but would the Bruins be better?

what would an extension for fowler look like?
Gavin Lee
5:59
Without doing any research into comparables, you'd have to think at least $6.something.
6:00
Which is too much for Anaheim. Remember Montour, Manson and Theodore all get raises after next year too.
MRB
6:01
Would Bieksa be the type of player McPhee would target? He could serve as a captain or an alternate on a young team, and with a contract that expires next year could be moved for a pick at the deadline next season.
Gavin Lee
6:01
Well, they'd need some players like that you're right. But I don't think he's ever going to be the best option from the Ducks, and you can only take one.
6:02
But you're right, I've written similar things about other players. Vegas will take some overpriced vets to build a leadership group.
MRB
6:02
I just worry about the Habs depth at D if they lose Pateryn.
Gavin Lee
6:03
They shouldn't have moved Barberio, that's the problem.
niha
6:04
kings make any moves?
Gavin Lee
6:04
I really believe they think Quick is going to turn it all around and make them contenders again.
niha
6:05
do kings trade a defenseman (i.e. Muzzin) for a wing?
Gavin Lee
6:05
If Muzzin is available, they'll have 30 GMs (Vegas too) calling them to offer whichever winger they want.
They won't deal him.
Dan
6:06
Hi Gavin... would love some more thoughts on the Ducks at the trade deadline? You think they'll be active? Who are their targets? Who are they dealing? Thanks -- love these chats!
Gavin Lee
6:06
Hey Dan. I love these chats too.
6:07
Not to just plug our stuff, but there I did this primer the other day: https://www.prohockeyrumors.com/2017/02/deadline-primer-anaheim.html
On the Ducks.
6:10
Sorry everyone, internet went out for a second. I'm back.
Dan, they need a winger but I don't think it'll be more than a rental and a depth center would be nice.

Do you think the rangers will make a move for a RH Def?
Gavin Lee
6:11
They missed on Michael Stone, who would have been fine there.
6:12
If they don't get Shattenkirk, I'm not sure who else would be a fit for them.
White Cheddar
6:12
Any shot the Devils trade Schneider? It seems like you'd waste most of his good years around a subpar team.
Gavin Lee
6:13
If they thought they were going to be subpar, they wouldn't have gone out and traded for Taylor Hall though. They're in it now, and they better use the prime years of those two, Henrique and Palmieri well.
They won't blow it up for at least another couple of years.

What would be a realistic return from the rangers if the blues dealt them shattenkirk?
Gavin Lee
6:14
A first and a prospect.
Ethan

Why is this chat messed up
Gavin Lee
6:15
It just collects the questions Ethan.
Sens fan
6:15
Who do u see as sens #1 target?
Gavin Lee
6:16
There have been a ton of whispers about Duchene, and he's probably still their #1 option. Whether they get him is an entirely different story.
6:17
Patrick Sharp is an interesting option for them though.
Ethan
6:18
Do you think Quincey will go to the pens
