What about islanders do they get a new arena where will they built it. Thanks
Gavin Lee
6:12
Somewhere in New York state.
Honestly, the Belmont site is probably the most likely
But who knows with the chaos that is the Islanders right now.
6:13
They NEED a new rink.
Joe aragona
6:14
What big free agent will vegas sign and how much.
Gavin Lee
6:14
Vadim Shipachyov! $9MM!
Honestly I doubt they go after any of the other big names.
Josh
6:15
So what's Bob Murray's yearly horrible/useless signing this year? Stoner, Bieksa Extension, Boll, Raymond, etc.
Gavin Lee
6:15
Patrick Eaves.
I'm just pumped as anyone that he had the huge year, but whoever gives him a multi-year deal is crazy.
Bob
6:16
Who's the biggest surprise name that gets moved before expansion draft?
Gavin Lee
6:16
Not really a surprise if you can foresee it is it?
6:17
How about David Clarkson. Is that a surprise?
Robert
6:17
Say the Islanders don't get a new arena plan worked out in a few years could they be re-located?(Seattle,Quebec)
Gavin Lee
6:17
I have a hard time believing they can't make it work in New York City.
6:18
And moving the Islanders to Quebec seems like completely the opposite of anything Bettman would ever do.
Chris
6:18
Not an Isles fan but do they get Tavares signed?? Cost?? FWIW. Been to Brooklyn......awful for hockey. Gotta get somewhere else
Gavin Lee
6:18
But, on this note...yes, Brooklyn is not the hockey spot.
On your first point Chris, I do think he signs.
6:19
For a big giant contract, and someone comes in and helps him make the "Rink that Johnny built"
Joe aragona
6:19
Do you think calgary moves to quebec city
Do you think calgary gets a new arena.
Gavin Lee
6:19
Burke is just a loud mouth. Calgary isn't going anywhere.
Joe aragona
6:20
Do you think martin jones gets resign by sharks
Gavin Lee
6:20
100% they will work out an extension.
Robert
6:20
Are Palat and Johnson arbitration eligible? If so what could those deals look like?
Gavin Lee
6:20
They both are arbitration eligible.
6:22
I'd have to do some work to get you a real estimate, but they'll both probably eclipse Killorn's deal if they want to buy out free agent years.
Joe aragona
6:22
Who do you think vegas drafts for a goal tender
Gavin Lee
6:23
I thought for a long time Grubauer, but if the Caps leave Nate Schmidt exposed he might be more valuable.
6:24
I think Pickard is a lock
And Kypreos has been banging the Fleury drum for a while, saying that they already have a deal.
6:25
Let me qualify that Pickard note..
If the Avalanche get Beauchemin to waive or buy him out that is.
If Zadorov is available..
Chris
6:25
Philly seems to be quiet rumor-wise. Do you think Hextall needs to make a move for a G?? Or is he content to wait for Stolarz?
Gavin Lee
6:26
Quiet rumor wise because they're still laughing about winning the draft lottery.
I think they should make a move for a goalie, yes.
6:27
Stolarz is no guarantee to come back as strong from his injury, but it's Carter Hart and Alex Lyon that they're waiting on. Both are solid prospects in their own right.
