Hey folks. Welcome to another chat
5:24
McKenzie just said that he thinks Price's hit will be between $10-11MM. Yowza.

Chances the Leafs move Komarov to 4C thus freeing up an all-too-valuable W spot on leafs roster?
Gavin Lee
5:25
It's an interesting idea, but I highly doubt it.
Komarov and Kadri are inseparable in Babcock's eyes it seems.
Connor
5:25
Does Boston look for a top 4 defenseman and what salary if any would have to be moved out? Spooner seems good as gone but is that enough? Pastrnak is the only other thing on the table. Do they look to move out McQuaid who is overpaid for what he does and add a vet like Girardi who is looking at less than the about $3 mil McQuaid is making?
Gavin Lee
5:26
Sounds like Girardi is heading to Tampa Bay, but I do think Boston might add a defender of some sort.
Maybe not a top 4 guy, as they are really banking McAvoy being that.
They do have a little money to play with even without moving Spooner out--which I still think they will do--
5:27
But I have a hard time believing it would be a big move in free agency
Colton

Assuming the Pens move on from Bimini/Daley/Kunitz, where does that leave them come Saturday?
Gavin Lee
5:27
Hehe. Bimini.
Leaves them moving up Zach Aston-Reese, and rebuilding that defense corps.
5:28
They will likely go after a reclamation project on the open market
Not a ton of room for a big name.
Robert
5:28
That's crazy, where does Radulov think he is going to get $6mil after only scoring 18 goals?
Gavin Lee
5:28
His value offensively isn't just goal scoring, but he's definitely going to get $6MM.
Hell, he got nearly that much this year.
Mike Dickinson
5:28
Hurricanes need scoring in the worst way and need to get to the cap floor. Who can they overpay for? Francis is not trading a top 4 defenseman for Duschene so it has to come from free agency.
Gavin Lee
5:29
You could overpay for one of the San Jose guys, but I'm not sure either of them will go to Carolina.
Justin Williams and Thomas Vanek don't offer much in terms of excitement do they.
So it'll need to be through trade if they want to make a real impact.
Connor
5:30
Throw a few million at Vrbata and flip him at the deadline while retaining salary @Carolina Guy
Gavin Lee
5:30
There's an idea Mike.
But I still think Vrbata stays in the desert.
Conor
5:30
Any news on Duchene, if the Avs are looking to move him before the season starts?
Gavin Lee
5:30
Nashville made a real push.
He won't start the year in Colorado.
Connor
5:30
Are they looking at a 2nd line wing to play with Krejci and Backes then?
Gavin Lee
5:30
Introducing, Anders Bjork.
Aviv
5:31
JWill is valuable
Gavin Lee
5:31
Valuable, yes. Offense-changing, hardly.
If you're "desperate for scoring", Williams isn't the answer.
But he is definitely valuable.
John
5:31
What do you make of the Maatta for duchene rumors?
Gavin Lee
5:32
If anyone from Colorado watched the playoffs they might not be so pumped to bring in Maatta.
Boy does he look slow.
Nick
5:32
Who are some reasonable targets for the Golden Knights? Am I just getting my hopes up for a whole lot of nothing?
Gavin Lee
5:32
Reasonable free agent targets?
I'd say look more towards the younger guys who either didn't get a QO or are Group VI free agents.
