Quick > Price
Gavin Lee

I think you'd find more people that disagree.
Robert

The Islanders have to have some kind of a play here... trading Hamonic(leaving a hole) for all those picks, they need to get Tavares a better supporting cast and a Goalie too.
Gavin Lee
6:04
I'm not sure it leaves a hole. They love Ryan Pulock and think he's ready
Those assets will get flipped though.
Austyn
6:05
Will the bruins address backup goalie? Also, I read that they were looking for a top 4 damn to pair with mcavoy...any news on that?
Gavin Lee
6:06
I don't think they add a big name top 4.
But a depth defenseman sure, and use either him or Chara with the youngster.
Todd
6:06
Quick - 2 cups and a conn Smythe.  There is no argument here.  Price gets too much love
Gavin Lee
6:07
I disagree, but you're entitled to your opinion.
Chase

Is Ryan Miller a lock to Anaheim? If not, who else do you think they target for the backup position? Any chance they sign a left D man? So many right hand shooting d men...makes me think a Vatanen trade is more likely, but guess that could also just be a depth move.
Gavin Lee
6:07
Definitely not a lock yet.
As I said above, Nilsson to Vancouver is the rumor du jour.
6:08
I think you're hoping more for Vancouver next season than they are themselves.
They could sign a LHD, but it won't be an impact one (if there even are any).
Robert
6:08
Jagr needs more pieces to fall into place before he gets a gig.
Gavin Lee
6:08
Definitely. I don't think he's worried.
Karl
6:08
Am I the only one who thinks if Thornton signed with the blues, there would be backlash from the fan base?
Gavin Lee
6:09
Which fan base?
Chris
6:09
Hartnell make sense for Tampa?? He'd add some size up front.
Gavin Lee
6:10
If it's cheap and short, sure. Would maybe be a nice fit on the third.
Tim
6:10
What do you see Justin Schultz signing for?
Gavin Lee
6:12
Several years, maybe 5 or 6 and something bigger than $5MM per
It'll be a hefty sum.
Connor
6:12
What's on jagr's twitter?
Gavin Lee
6:12
It was him complaining about getting no calls. With funny photos.
Robert
6:12
Arizona made moves on draft day, but I'm not sure what they are trying to accomplish, 3 teams in division far ahead of them (ANA, EDM, CAL). They seem to just be in a cycle of being bad then mediocre then bad again.
Gavin Lee
6:13
They want to stay in Arizona.
Winning is a must.
They've gotta sell a playoff push this year.
Karl
6:13
The blues fan base. Seems like every time the Sharks were in stl the fans booed Thornton every time he touched the puck.
Gavin Lee
6:14
Fans forget quickly when the player is coming their way.
If Thornton blew up and really struggled? Now that might get ugly.
Alright guys, I'll call it there.
6:15
Remember that we're having a special chat on Saturday morning before it all kicks off
Come join me for the craziness.
Robert
6:15
All this Thornton talk is interesting but the guy is in his late 30s and coming of serious knee surgery
Gavin Lee
6:15
(I agree with this, and am very worried about a Thornton deal)
Fred
6:15
Gavin, what are the chances of KHL signee Alexei Bereglazev(defense) makes the Rangers big club this year?
Gavin Lee
6:16
Ah what the hell here's another one
