The Oilers are ready to do damage, I really think.
I would be so frightened of that team in the playoffs.
6:23
They have a goaltender who can steal games, and one line that is pretty much unstoppable.
Yuck Islanders, by the way.
Greiss already pulled.

I like Columbus in the east because of bobrovsky
Gavin Lee
6:24
Bob is just the smoothest goalie in the league isn't he?
Joseph
6:25
Any news on the arena search for the Isles?
Gavin Lee
6:25
It actually sounds like they are renegotiating with Barclays.
To stay for at least another few years.
Which is part of why the Tavares stuff came back up.
6:26
Whoa, Hamonic-Weise.
Would be nice if the Islanders got a new building though wouldn't it?
6:27
Somewhere to put down roots.
Sad Wings Fan
6:27
Just move them to Quebec
Gavin Lee
6:28
I would hate if it were the Isles that had to relocate.
And Quebec isn't at the top of the list.

Do you think the Jackets can win the cup?
Gavin Lee
6:28
They definitely can. They'll have to go through a tough Metro though.
6:29
If the Penguins really get Malkin/Letang back for the first round, they're just as dangerous as ever.
Joseph
6:29
Like out on the Island? that would be nice, That place rocked when they were good
Gavin Lee
6:29
Wouldn't it though. The house that Tavares built and all that.
6:30
4-0 Flyers.
Weise has a Gordie Trick in the first 10 minutes.
Sad Wings Fan
6:31
Do you think teams will offer draft picks to convince LV to take a bad contract? Or do you think LV will focus on being competitive instead?
Gavin Lee
6:31
They definitely will make deals like this.
Sad Wings Fan
6:31
Maybe a bit of both?
Gavin Lee
6:32
The thing is some of those contracts might still be competitive players, that just don't fit on their team's cap structure.
I'm interested to see what the market sets for that kind of deal though.
6:33
Is it a late-round pick? Or a real prospect?
Joseph
6:33
didn't the commish say deals like that were a no go?
Gavin Lee
6:33
They said everything had to "pass the smell test"
And then said that Vegas could make deals to not draft certain players.
6:34
They will definitely be making deals, with some people hinting that some are already done.
Sad Wings Fan
6:34
When LV takes a player in the expansion draft, do they assume the entire cap hit?
Gavin Lee
6:34
They do.
6:35
The entire contract is transferred.
Sad Wings Fan
6:35
Then Kronwall for a bottle of air
Gavin Lee
6:35
It's sad that he's fallen so far. Wasn't he once beloved in Detroit for the big hits?
Sad Wings Fan
6:36
Too many injuries I think. He was good when he was younger. Kinda like Franzen
