Who do the Lightning lose in expansion now?? Paquette?? Good PK; tough; cheap. Chance they bribe McPhee enough to take Garrison????
Gavin Lee
5:47
They could definitely make a deal to lose Garrison. That's also what moving Drouin does. Not just that it gives you another spot to protect a forward, but that your leverage with Vegas goes up because there is less talent to pick from.

Do you think the Kings make any major moves this off season?
Gavin Lee
5:47
They're after help up front to make them faster.
Buying out Greene helps
But I can't see them making a deal for one of the big forward names, they don't have the right assets.

Think the Preds will make a deal with Vegas to keep Neal, maybe spin off Wilson or Smith? Any chance they shock everyone, move a d-man and go 7-3-1 instead?
Gavin Lee
5:48
I would be blown away if they move a defenseman.
Is another year of Neal worth the asset though?
They won't be able to afford him in free agency a year from now, so it depends on the ask.
The 3rd Overall Pick

Which team do you see selecting at my position assuming its not Dallas?
Gavin Lee
5:49
There is always a chance the Devils move down and take Heiskanen.
And if for some reason Patrick isn't taken top-2, Vegas will be jumping over tables to talk to the Stars.
Kev

Any reason to think the Ducks get more scoring help?
Gavin Lee
5:50
Lots of reasons. They're named Sami, Josh and Cam.
Cory
5:50
What does the future hold for Brodin?
Gavin Lee
5:50
Poutine.
Antti Niemi
5:50
Which team do you see having interest in trading for me or signing me?
Gavin Lee
5:50
Is none an answer? None.
Harold

Beauchemin is somehow going to end up on the Ducks again even though we have an endless amount of defenseman (including some really bad ones) right? Seems like he is always coming back to the Ducks, haha.
Gavin Lee
5:50
Haha. That would be amusing.
Chris
5:51
Drouin got 6years. 33 mil
Gavin Lee
5:51
Yep. Story was up a long time ago. Thanks for paying attention Chris.
Patrick Sharp
5:51
Do you think I have anything left in the tank to be a top 6 or top 9 forward?
Gavin Lee
5:51
Unfortunately, no.
I love Sharp as a player, but I think his body is quitting on him.
5:52
Alright guys, I'm sorry I can't get to everything but I have an appointment I can't miss.
Save these questions for the chat next week.
It will be right after the expansion draft and before the regular draft. Insanity I'm sure.
