Do you like cheesesteaks?
Gavin Lee
5:36
I have never had a good cheesesteak in Philly...but boy did I have a good one in Baltimore.
Sorry Philadelphia...
Mr.Krabs
5:36
Do you think the Kings will rebound and have a good season next year?
Gavin Lee
5:36
Depends what you mean by good season..
I do not think they will make the playoffs next year.
5:37
But, setting it up so Gaborik can be on LTIR next year is good for them.
Evan
5:37
I heard about some young kids who look really good. Which one have you liked the most: Stevenson, Feinberg, Michaels, or Smith?
Gavin Lee
5:37
Hey OHL scout here is your list.
5:38
I wouldn't even be able to start there Evan.
Rob
5:38
Why did my wife leave me???!!!
Gavin Lee
5:38
Because this live chat looked conspicuously like a..different..live chat.
But I'm sorry for your loss Rob.

Can we put Panarin in the same class as McDavid, Laine, Matthews, Eichel, etc?
Gavin Lee
5:39
Are those four in the same class?
Panarin is five years older than them. That is a lot of development time.
5:40
He's a superstar, don't get me wrong. But he'll never be the best player in the world like McDavid, or a #1 center like Matthews and Eichel.
5:41
(Winnipeg Jets fans scream out)
Todd C
5:41
if Kovalchuk does figure on coming back to the NHL, which teams do you figure will be ringing Ray Shero with an offer?
Gavin Lee
5:41
Is it crazy to think Montreal?
5:43
I'm not even sure if the Devils would want to move him. He'd help them too.
Stan Bowman
5:43
How much is it going to cost me in young talent to move Seabrook, if he waives his NMC?
Gavin Lee
5:43
Do you have another Teuvo stashed away where no one is looking?
5:44
Kidding, kind of. It won't take that much
But boy does that contract look bad.
Shea Weber
5:45
Any rumblings about which golf club I will be using?
Gavin Lee
5:45
I think you're a TaylorMade guy, but who knows.
Danny
5:45
Gavin, thanks for the chat. If not this year, has the window of opportunities closed for the Caps?
Gavin Lee
5:46
It's in interesting question Danny.
It certainly will be difficult to repeat as President's winners again, but nothing is impossible in the playoffs and they'll certainly get there again.
5:47
But the Caps are hurt themselves long term by dealing for Shattenkirk this year, and others before him.
5:48
The good news is they have barely anyone on the books long-term, and could jump into a reload phase pretty quickly if they had to.
Danny
5:49
Do you see any players going the route that Matthews took?
Gavin Lee
5:50
Matthews was a unique case because of a bunch of factors, including his ability, age and other options..but yes, I think there will be others in the future that try it.
5:51
Apparently it was his idea, at least according to Don Granato.
5:52
But it's not like there will be some flood of players doing it.
5:54
By the way, an update on my MLBTR fantasy baseball league status..I'm 10th of 12 and falling after all my pitchers hurt themselves on dirt bikes.
5:55
Any tips that the guys who write about baseball for a living wouldn't know are much appreciated.
5:58
Interesting. Buffalo asked for Drury and were denied.
Danny
6:03
What would it take for a team like the leafs to get Duchene?
