Is Larry brooks arrogant?
Gavin Lee
6:41
I've never met Mr. Brooks, so I can't say.

In next summer free agent class who do you think gets the most money
Gavin Lee
6:42
I'd have to say Tavares. Does that count?
Carey Price will be a contender.
Mike

I've seen writers mention the rangers as a possible suitor for kovy. Is it at all possible for that to happen from your point of view?
Gavin Lee
6:43
From my point of view, it's possible but not probable.
I honestly don't think the Rangers are interested in signing an aging winger.
They already have Rick Nash.
Mike

Have you heard any NHL comparables to what Nino and Nolan could turn out to be?
Gavin Lee
6:44
I've said for a while that Patrick is Eric Staal at his ceiling--which Craig Button also said the other day, which is a bit frustrating--and Martin Hanzal at his floor.
6:45
Hischier is a different beast entirely.
6:46
He could be Auston Matthews-lite, but also could have a much smaller impact than Patrick.
His defensive game is really natural, and he can take the puck from players seemingly at will.

What contract do you see jack eichel sign this summer
I think connor mcdavid signs the most contract this summer
Gavin Lee
6:47
McDavid will sign a big deal, no doubt. But his total probably comes in lower than Tavares if they both get done.
6:48
Have to remember that McDavid (and Eichel for that matter) will only be buying out a few free agent years if they go the full 8
Mike

Ok thanks. Those sound good to me being a devils fan. Have you ever heard anything from players, execs, scouts etc about people not wanting to join NJ?
Gavin Lee
6:49
I've never heard anything personally, but I think they ranked high on the ballot that someone did. Let me see if I can find it.
6:52
Yeah, it was Custance when he was at ESPN. They ranked in the top 3 one year.
But nothing like Winnipeg.
