Somehow Poile is working his magic though.
Having Jarnkrok for 2MM for so long is madness.
Robert
6:14
Jarnkrok signed that weird contract too, exactly
Robby

Has Sullivan become the best coach in the NHL today?
Gavin Lee
6:15
I don't think it's possible to judge who the best coach is. We have almost no reference for how they'd act in different situations.
If you gave Mike Babcock or Bruce Boudreau or John Tortorella Pittsburgh's team, would the same thing happen?
Who knows.

Do you see in Expansion Draft Trades by Vegas and ever see a NHL team in KC or OKC or Orlando?
Gavin Lee
6:16
There will definitely be a bunch of trades by Vegas.
6:17
McPhee has come out and said he already has deals for extra draft picks in his pocket.
It's why the expansion draft itself will be so hard to predict. Obvious choices will be left exposed, only to go unselected
And then the next day a free draft pick will go to Vegas.

Do you mean the Rasmussen piece?
6:18
I'd be very surprised if he goes at #4.
6:19
He'll go somewhere in the top 10 though.
Maybe Detroit @ 9

Who all do you think the caps bring back for next year ?
Gavin Lee
6:20
Out of their UFAs?
Just Oshie, probably.
Lorran

Who do you think will be the biggest name to change teams this summer?
Gavin Lee
6:20
Matt Duchene.
Robert
6:20
For the Kings, is their only realistic choice to buy out Gaborik and/or Brown? or can they dump them on another team? (Vegas, Arizona)
Gavin Lee
6:21
So, it's tough because Gaborik is hurt and can't be bought out during the first window.
They will get another window (probably) later in the summer after dealing with their RFAs, but he might not even be recovered by then.
6:22
Buying out Brown would be a huge move by the new management..this is a former captain who had somewhat of a bounce-back year, albeit still pretty disappointing.
6:23
He also has a no trade, so if Arizona isn't on that list I doubt the Kings could get him to waive it to go to the desert.
6:24
Brown has a wife and four kids in LA.
Robert
6:26
If Ducks get Bieksa to waive his no trade who do they need to protect on Defense? (fowler, lindholm...then what do they do?)
Gavin Lee
6:27
They either have to move one, or make a deal with Vegas.
You just cannot let Vatanen or Manson walk out the door for free.
And they have too many forwards to go with 4-4
Robert
6:27
I think i read Montour and theodore don't need to be protected
Gavin Lee
6:28
You're right, neither of them do.
Fowler, Lindholm, Vatanen and Manson all do though.

Does Hayden Furey atRT THE SEASON IN CHARLOTTE OR RALEIGH?
Gavin Lee
6:28
Man I wish there was a player named Furey.
6:29
But I think Fleury does if the Hurricanes end up moving one of the other defensemen.
They have so many they could likely move two and still be pretty set for the future.
Remember they still have Jake Bean coming too.
