That, and perhaps Dadonov if he decides to come over.

What does Dallas do July 1?
Gavin Lee
5:33
Justin Williams is such a good fit there.
Robert
5:33
Flyers have Giroux, Lehtera, Couturier, and Filpulla. Any of them on the move? (Montreal, Filpulla has played with Drouin before and they were effective together)
Gavin Lee
5:34
Filp does have a strong no move, 16 teams and Montreal could be on there.
It does seem like they have too many centers if Patrick is going to play right away
todd
5:34
Williams to the Stars %
Gavin Lee
5:35
This is impossible, but like 40%? I think they're the most reasonable option but there are a ton of teams in on him.
Todd
5:35
Kings need to trade Muzzin and a prospect and/or pick for Galchenyuk
Gavin Lee
5:35
Would be a nice fit for Galchenyuk, at least would make that offense a bit more dynamic.
But it definitely doesn't fix it entirely.
Mike
5:35
What do you expect the Hawks to do in free agency? Do you believe they'll trade Kruger and Anisimov?
Gavin Lee
5:36
Kruger I definitely think is still going.
Anisimov I'm not so sure about, but they have something up their sleeve to be sure.
There is too much chatter around them and free agents for there not to be something brewing.
Aviv

I don't think canes are "desperate" for scoring. Lot of young guys that will only get better. Skinner is still fairly young.
Gavin Lee
5:36
I agree, for what it's worth. Just responding to how the question was posed.
Aho is a star.
Justin
5:37
Rank these 3 possible destinations by the likely hood of a Marleau/Thornton joint signing: Leafs, Stars, Lightning
Gavin Lee
5:37
Joint signing..err. Leafs/Stars/Lightning like you have it...but boy do I not see any of those happening.
Mike Dickinson
5:37
We've had Vrbata. I'll pass. We've had Justin Williams as well. No thanks. I'd overpay for Thornton but only on a 2 year deal. They have said he wants 2.
Gavin Lee
5:38
If Joe Thornton said he'd come to Carolina if you gave him three, would you?
I have to think they would. They're a cap floor team, who cares if he retires.
Connor
5:38
Wow you really think Bjork is ready to jump into a top 6 role? Also what's up with guys like Vatrano and Spooner on the 3rd line? Sweeney was Chiarelli's No. 2 and he loved having an entire bottom 6 over the age of 29... no wonder they want to trade Spooner haha. I miss my Thornton-Campbell-Paille line. Just that grit. And Thornton could fight. Plus there was the game Campbell broke his leg and played a 2 minute penalty kill after
Gavin Lee
5:38
That's a lot. But yes, I think Bjork is ready for a big role in that offense.
Chase
5:39
Any rumbling out of Anaheim? Potential targets? Vatanen trade talks dead? Thanks!
Gavin Lee
5:39
They've been very quiet except for some small connections to a couple guys. That usually means something bigger is happening, but who knows.
5:40
I'm not sure they are going to trade Vatanen yet, but we'll get our answer soon enough. A Fowler extension will clear a lot of things up in Anaheim.
todd
5:40
would love to have justin williams as a star
Gavin Lee
5:40
He'd be a great fit in Dallas.
Todd
5:40
Which defencemen do you think might be a fit on the Sens? I heard EK needs a new d partner?
Gavin Lee
5:40
He does, though Claesson may be the one to fill that.
There is still some talk about them looking at Emelin, which I just think would be a horrible mistake.
LeBrun just brought it up again on Montreal radio though.
5:41
He did mention that the left-side trap that Ottawa plays leaves openings for big hits--Phaneuf/Methot/Boro all took advantage of it.
Emelin could as well.
Steve
5:41
Such a weak year for the Canes to find a centre .Probabky going to have to focus on getting scoring on the wings this year
Gavin Lee
5:41
Even that is just a ton of question marks.
Steve
5:41
Out of the four Centres you mentioned , Filpulla is the only real second liner
Gavin Lee
5:42
I'm not even sold he's a second liner.
Connecting...
