He was going to land somewhere, but Tampa's right side isn't good enough to have him on it I don't think.
If Dotchin falters you're in trouble.

Part 2 of that: Bolts save money on D so they can add a top 9 F??  If so, who??
Gavin Lee
5:53
There just aren't very many exciting top nine forwards available.
Outside of Williams, Marleau and maybe Vanek there isn't much to like.
That is, if Radulov is really in Montreal.
Simba
5:53
Who are some bottom six forward names the Blues would be interested in you think?
Gavin Lee
5:54
We had Stalberg going there in our list, but I could see a guy like Dwight King or even Brian Boyle going there.
Patrick
5:54
Anisimov a fit for NYR? After dealing Stepan what can Rangers even offer in any potential deal for a center?
Gavin Lee
5:54
I mean, they could offer cap space to Chicago I guess.
5:55
But I don't see that as a very good fit.
Todd
5:55
Do you think John Taveras will sign an extension or will he be traded during the season?
Gavin Lee
5:55
Still think he'll sign. Nothing will change on that for me until July 2nd.
4th line centre
5:55
Rangers sign ????? July 1st!
Gavin Lee
5:56
I had Gagner going there but it sounds like he might be a Blackhawk by the end of Saturday.
They'll get one of the backup goaltenders.
I don't think Hellberg will be the guy.
Asking for a friend
5:57
Thornton or Williams would look might fine wearing a blue not on their jersey would they not? Couple of productive veterans with plenty of playoff experience. Blues give both of them a chance at a Stanley cup.... smellin what I'm stepping in?
Gavin Lee
5:57
They'd look good, but Schenn was the big scoring addition I think for the Blues.
5:58
They won't have any trouble scoring with that group.
Trapper Keeper
5:58
Shattenkirk to nyr what will the term be ?
Gavin Lee
5:58
Seven years for the New Jersey Devils.
I think Shattenkirk to NYR is falling further and further from reality
Signing Smith almost assures it.
Todd
5:58
Why is the whole hockey world obsessed with Carey Price?  He's never won a cup and hasn't gotten the Habs to the finals yet.  I think he is overrated.
Gavin Lee
5:58
He may be a little overrated, but he is damn good
5:59
You could say the same things about a lot of really, really good goaltenders.
6:00
And yet, Antti Niemi took Chicago to a Cup.
Chase

So do you think Versteeg's 1 year, $1.75 mil deal was a steal for Calgary? I feel like he could've possibly gotten a 2 year deal elsewhere and maybe even more AAV. Thoughts?
Gavin Lee
6:00
Huge steal. We had him at 2 years, $4.4MM (total)
Anthony

Hey Gavin, based on the rumors....is a second round pick likely for shipping off kovalchuk?  Mid level prospect?  Any idea on what NJ can get?
Gavin Lee
6:00
If it happens, it'll be a pick I would think.
6:01
Second, third..something like that.
But, I'm not convinced this wasn't all a big negotiating tactic to pull money from SKA.
Rich
6:01
Any chance Bruins in on shattenkirk? Odds he signs with them
Gavin Lee
6:01
Definitely a chance, but I'd have to think a small one.
Fred
6:01
Who do you see the rangers signing for backup goalie?
Gavin Lee
6:02
I thought Nilsson was a good fit, but Friedman has him going to Vancouver.
Everyone needs to go to Jagr's twitter right now.
Everyone.
