Hey, Gavin love this chat. Look forward to it every week. So the bruins? Are they going deep next year or nah?
Gavin Lee
5:23
Hey, thanks Mark Watney. I also look forward to it every week.
Deep in the playoffs? I wouldn't bet on it.
5:24
But I think they can get back.
McAvoy is an absolute stud.
He's my favorite for the Calder next year.

What can my Blues do to get a center
Gavin Lee
5:24
It's interesting. I've been asked before about the Blues center problem.
5:25
They have a half dozen guys who can play the position, but still don't seem to have much performance there.
5:26
It's not available on the open market unless you think Thornton is the answer (he's not), so it'll take some out-of-the-box thinking in trade if they really want to upgrade.
Me? I'd put Sobotka back in the middle and let him play there all year.
Billy G
5:26
I like Aiden De La Gorgendiere the best. But seriously tho D'Brickashaw Fergeson or Dansby Swanson?
Gavin Lee
5:27
I'll go with Dansby.
Robin

What moves can you see dallas make in this win know window?
Gavin Lee
5:27
They want a defenseman, but as I wrote the other day (or was it today?) they have too many bodies back there.
5:28
I imagine Oleksiak is on the move somewhere, and wouldn't be surprised if they were after one of the Ducks.
Eric
5:28
That's a fair point about him only being in high school. Hopefully Lucia knocks it out of him at Minnesota. On the expansion draft subject, I'd personally rather protect Suter, Spurgeon, and Dumba, trade Brodin, get Vegas to take Scandella, and move forward with the protected 3, Reilly, Olofsson, and Folin. Is that smart or dumb?
Gavin Lee
5:29
It's not dumb, but Brodin is a really good player.
It would obviously depend on what's coming back.
5:30
If you can get a substantially bigger package for Brodin than Dumba, sure.
But Brodin is locked into a fairly reasonable deal, while Dumba will be coming to another contract soon.
Richard Portillo
5:30
Hey, I'm back. Remember me, the honey mustard guy? Still lovin' honey mustard. Do you think Erik Karlson is the real deal or no?
Gavin Lee
5:30
I remember..I still hate honey mustard.
5:31
Erik Karlsson the Ottawa Senators' captain? Yes..
He's unbelievable.
Bobby Flay
5:31
Is losing sekera a big blow for the Oily Men?
Gavin Lee
5:32
Losing Sekera=bad. More Klefbom=good.
Robin
5:32
Do you think they will be able to move both goalies?
Gavin Lee
5:32
I imagine this is talking about the Stars.
I don't think both will be traded, no.
5:33
That's a lot of money for backups.
Ronald McDonald
5:33
Who has the best name in hockey?
Gavin Lee
5:33
Greg McKegg
I was partial to Wojtek Wolski too.
Mr. Smith and Wolensky
5:34
Stanley cup champions?
Gavin Lee
5:34
Riding this Nashville train all the way.
Kevin

How are the VGK's going to get top quality forwards from the expansion draft. Seems like they can get some great defense and goalies, but the forwards are going to be thin.
Gavin Lee
5:34
They sure are.
5:35
There isn't going to be much skill, but they should be able to at least make a good bunch of two-way guys.
Shipachyov is a big part in trying to get that skill, but not winning the draft lottery was painful.
