Hey folks. This likely won't be a 2 hour chat as I have a bunch of work to do for the draft, but ask away!
What a couple of days.
5:17
To start, no I have no idea what dirt Marc Bergevin has on George McPhee.
Chase
5:17
Think the ducks make any trades soon? Vatanen?
Gavin Lee
5:18
I doubt they move any of their defensemen now. They cleared Stoner like I thought, and moved Theodore.
Patrick
5:18
I know you have been asked this in all of your past love chats but just was wondering do you still see the caps signing oshie ?
Gavin Lee
5:19
Yep, same answer. I think it gets done, and it was never going to be before the expansion draft.
The cap didn't go up to 77 like they'd hoped, but losing Schmidt takes one thing off their plate.
CJ

Whats the word on duchene?
Gavin Lee
5:20
There has been rumblings both ways on whether the Isles could get him as well but I seriously doubt it. Dreger through out Nashville today, which is one I talked about at the deadline.
I still think it's Carolina though.
But we'll have to see.
Eric

Sens moves? Who could you see making the trip to Ottawa via trade or signing? 28th overall pick - who ya got?
Gavin Lee
5:20
The Ottawa Senators select, Jake Oettinger, goaltender, Boston University.
5:21
You'd think they would want another addition on the wing, but we'll see what happens.
Robert
5:21
Lol yeah taking on Emelin for nothing is a blessing
Gavin Lee
5:21
Getting a better defensemen who costs half as much for a fifth two years from now..
Danny
5:22
Is San Jose in the market to swing a trade / what's the status of Thornton / Marleau?
Gavin Lee
5:22
They're still talking to the vets about a possible comeback, but like Oshie they wouldn't have signed before expansion
I very much doubt both come back but I could definitely see Marleau.
CJ
5:22
How about duchene?
any ideas on duchene?
Gavin Lee
5:22
See above.
Chase
5:22
Do you think that means re-signing Eaves and possibly another forward now with the extra cap space?
Gavin Lee
5:23
They really want to keep Eaves, but I think they need a better winger than him.
I'd be scared of him turning back into a pumpkin
Donavin
5:23
Vegas didn't take mrazek, what happens to him now?
Gavin Lee
5:23
He tries to rebuild his value in Detroit.
A ton has come out about how he's not the greatest worker, and I'm not sure how much of it I really buy into.
5:24
He'll have to quell those rumors if he wants to be worth anything in this league. Remember they didn't sign him long-term last year.
Jason
5:24
The Ducks cleared up lots of cap space, planning something big, signings, or just back to being a budget team?
Gavin Lee
5:25
As above, I think they try to bring Eaves back. But as for big moves in free agency I don't see anyone that really jumps out.
It's a really weak year.
Patrick
5:25
Do you think it get done within the next couple of days or after July 1st ?
Gavin Lee
5:25
This is re: Oshie I'd say before the 1st.
Guest

New to the live chat so sorry if this is out of bounds..... Do you forsee Oettinger being a first rounder tomorrow.
Gavin Lee
5:25
Not out of bounds at all!
Look above, I think he goes to the Sens.
JG
5:25
Any word on Sharp coming back to Chicago?
Gavin Lee
5:25
I haven't even heard if Sharp is going to be cleared to play yet.
