I mean that's a little different because of the salary rules and how players can stay for longer etc etc, but you're right.
Lots of teams bust on entire drafts all the time, especially ones who are continually in the back half of rounds.

Any chance devils deal #1?
Gavin Lee
5:56
It sounds like they're going to pick, but you never know what'll happen on the draft floor.
Superman
5:56
do you think we see any offer sheets? Maybe pastrnak or drailsatil?
Gavin Lee
5:56
I do not. As above, I don't believe in them anymore..they're just so rare.
Chris

Do you think the Predators can overcome Pittsburgh's defense?
Gavin Lee
5:57
They already are overcoming the defense.
5:58
It's Matt Murray that they have to worry about.
Logan paul

How much do you think McDavid signs for?
Gavin Lee
5:58
Depends on if he signs for eight years or the five that has been thrown around lately.
6:01
If it's eight he may push $10MM, which is ridiculous, but if it's just five it would be much less.
Remember that the thing that inflates these contracts is the amount of free agent years you buy out.
Chris
6:02
You think Rinne can hold up?
Gavin Lee
6:02
That was a rough few minutes last night in the third period.
If he starts (and he should) he'll have a lot of Nashville fans behind him. Maybe he can bounce back.
Johnny Rocket

What do you think it would take to get landeskog out of Colorado?
Gavin Lee
6:03
If Duchene is really a good young defenseman, first round pick and prospect, Landeskog is likely a first and a prospect.
But it might be even less than that.
Patrick
6:04
But you think oshie signs after the expansion draft ?
Gavin Lee
6:04
I do. They wouldn't do it before the draft, because they don't need to protect him right now.
Robert
6:05
Do you think Tavares stays with Isles long term? Hard to think with arena questions and average team around him.
Gavin Lee
6:05
In the end, I do think he'll re-sign there long term
He's said clearly dozens of times that he wants to, and that he loves being an Islander.
That said, if a deal isn't worked out this summer the pressure from the media is going to be insane all season.
Robert
6:06
Similar to Stamkos
Gavin Lee
6:06
Exactly.
EJ
6:06
Duchene, Galchenyuk, and Drouin are all names I've heard brought up as targets for the Canes. Which do you think could most likely happen?
Gavin Lee
6:07
I think all three are available to them if they offer the right pieces.
Most likely is Duchene simply because we know he's on the market.
6:08
Both the others may be pulled back and kept for now.

Who the bruins protect? Colin or kevan miller?
Gavin Lee
6:10
Colin is the clear choice, in terms of upside, age and control.
Robert
6:10
Do you think Tyler Johnson + 2nd round pick could get Ryan Ellis from Preds?
Gavin Lee
6:10
Hey, I suggested TJ to the Preds at the deadline. I bet they wish they'd listened to me now..
But, no I don't think that gets it done.
6:11
Ellis is too valuable to them.
Robert
6:11
Ellis has very friendly deal that makes Subban's better
Gavin Lee
6:12
Without Ellis being so cheap they wouldn't be able to afford Arvidsson and Johansen deals this summer.
Tough though because he'll be demanding a huge raise in a couple years.
