Anything going on with bruins and Colorado?
Gavin Lee
5:51
There was lots of Landeskog speculation at the deadline, but I haven't heard anything in a while.

Does Vegas move any more veterans before the season?  Perhaps the Ducks could use someone..
Gavin Lee
5:51
They will definitely, they have to.
They have nine NHL defensemen still
EJ
5:52
Any other top line center options for the Canes since it doesn't look like Duchene is going to happen? Nugent-Hopkins maybe?
Gavin Lee
5:52
RNH isn't a top center option, and I'm not convinced he's leaving Edmonton this year.
Next summer, sure..probably has to.
Patrick

Do you see the caps making any moves maybe a trade or a ufa signing
Gavin Lee
5:52
They have very little cap room, and still a lot of spots to fill on the NHL roster.
5:53
They can promote internally, but it looks like that would still put them over the cap, if just.
A trade of Grubauer still might happen I think.

Do you think Slava Voynov returns to the NHL in 2018-19?
Gavin Lee
5:53
I don't think anyone can predict that just yet.
Joe aragona

Why you say  arizona i think there relocating
Gavin Lee
5:54
I have a hard time believing Bettman would allow that, especially with a single owner now.
Hossa
5:54
If the 'Hawks do that with Hossa and they win I quit.
Gavin Lee
5:54
Many people would.
Chris

Insight into the Yzerplan for 8 D Men fitting into 6 spots.   Sergachev and Koekkoek sit in Syracuse waiting for a top 6 injury or does Stevie have a deal he's thinking up???
Gavin Lee
5:55
I don't think there is another deal coming, but I have no info on that.
5:56
Sergachev likely won't make the roster, even though he probably could.
5:57
Seven defensemen are regularly carried by NHL teams.
Joe aragona
5:57
Do you think flyers signing elliott was good move
Gavin Lee
5:57
Well, Mason got much more to go to Winnipeg so perhaps value wise yes.
But it's more underwhelming goaltending for a franchise that has had it for a long time.
If Hart or Lyon make it that might change.

To add on to the "specialist" theme, Columbus had a ton of success doing that with Sam Gagner last year before he moved up the lineup(4th line ES, top PP unit). I've long thought this would be the natural evolution from the 4th line "tough guys".
Gavin Lee
5:58
Yep.
Gagner actually hit a big drought when he WASN'T used in that role, making you think maybe he'd be perfectly suited for it.
I doubt Vancouver deploys him like that.
Joe aragona
5:58
Do you think carlonia relocates
Gavin Lee
5:59
I do not.
Winning will help that franchise.
But it better come quick.
(I know, the Cup didn't seem to help much in the years that followed)

Hiring Hitchcock, trading for Bishops rights (and signing him), trading for Methot, signing Radulov and Hanzal; how good can the stars be?
Gavin Lee
5:59
Two years ago they were the best team in the Western Conference.
6:00
There's nothing to suggest they couldn't compete for that again, if they can get the defense in order and Bishop doesn't lay an egg.
(or, maybe he should. An egg is a zero right?)
JG

Go back in time with the 1st overall pick. Do you take Tavares or Hedman?
