If they make another deal, it'll be for a depth guy like this. He very well could, but division trades are always iffy.
Brett

Are the Red Wings finally missing the playoffs?
Gavin Lee
6:18
Yes.
Ethan
6:19
Because Pitt said they are going to make another move in the next 24 hours
Gavin Lee
6:19
They said they'll make the decision in the next 24 hours.
Not necessarily the actual trade.
Ethan
6:20
Lazar for parenteu and smith pelly, 6th?
Gavin Lee
6:20
They'll only trade Lazar for some real value, and that's not it. He's at his lowest right now, which is not a great place to trade anyone.
Brian
6:21
Where will Shattenkirk land and for who?
Gavin Lee
6:23
I've avoided this till now, because it's just so hard to actually predict, but here goes. Shattenkirk to Rangers for a 1st (2017), 3rd (2018) and Robin Kovacs.
Now watch him go to Edmonton for Jordan Eberle or something...
Brett
6:24
You believe the Blues will trade Shattenkirk so the don't lose him for nothing but where is your best bet for him to go? Please say Rangers
Gavin Lee
6:24
I hope you're happy now Brett, I've jinxed him right out of New York.
Ethan
6:25
Is cammaleri even valuable. If he plays well against the rangers and the Canadians could he gain a reasonable return? If we retain.
Gavin Lee
6:26
He doesn't have a lot of value. He's aging, expensive and has a full no-trade clause.
It's not impossible to move him, but he wouldn't net a lot even if the Devils retained 50%

How drastic of an impact does an expansion draft looming have on team's decision making process and the market in general? Will we see backup goalies getting overpaid to be exposed? Will teams forced to trade a defenseman have to get a severely cut return? Or should things stay relatively normal?
Gavin Lee
6:28
Honestly I think it's just slowing down things more than anything. It's another phone call to make in the middle of a deal, and an extra front office person to get involved.
Team's are worried, but you only ever lose 1 guy. As long as it's not your young stud defenseman or star goaltender it won't kill your team.
6:30
The one thing that it will cause, and Mark Lazerus and others discussed it today is perhaps qualifying offers being put out a little early to backup goaltenders. An RFA only fills the requirement if he's tendered a QO before the lists are submitted.
It's why you saw Jeff Glass signed in Chicago today.

6:31
Any truth to the blues patrik berglund extension rumors?
Gavin Lee
6:32
They definitely want to keep him, but I don't have any inside info on extension talks.
Brett
6:32
Thanks for jinxing the Rangers with your Shattenkirk prediction. So he will go to Edmonton for RNH not Eberle haha
Gavin Lee
6:33
You're probably right. I'm sorry Rangers fans everywhere, I shouldn't have done it.
6:34
Thanks guys, I'm going to wrap it up. Make sure to follow us for the next week and download the app for the breaking news on Wednesday. We'll have coverage all day, even though it'll probably be a slow morning like usual.
6:35
It was fun tonight. We'll do this again next Thursday and talk about all the deals.
