Montour is up for a new contract next summer, and they won't have the money to pay him and Manson long term if Vatanen is still around.

what do you think Draissaitl signs for and Austin Mathews
Gavin Lee
6:27
I did wonder if the Oilers have a round number in mind for McDavid+Draisaitl, putting him at $7.5.
Kuznetsov is older and had a lot of leverage from Russia.
6:28
Matthews will get 10+ probably, but again, he still has two years of ELC left.

Where do the devils go for defense
Gavin Lee
6:28
Someone else asked that, and I'm not sure.
I thought they would go hard after Shattenkirk, and perhaps they were the team that offered him 7 years.
6:29
But there just isn't a quick fix to defense.

In Nashville what does Johansen sign for? Kuznetsov  got 8/$7.8
Gavin Lee
6:29
The latest report had him asking for $8.5
6:30
Which isn't out of the question for a soon to be 25 year old.
Remember that this is his last year as an RFA. They'll be buying out all UFA years.

who wins the west and east next year
Gavin Lee
6:31
Predictions like this are useless, but I'll put...Calgary vs Pittsburgh in the final.
Ask me again much closer to the season.

Do you think the devils wound trade Henrique
Gavin Lee
6:31
I think they would if it helped the team, but I don't hear people knocking down the door to get him.
6:32
If it doesn't work again this year, they should move him at the deadline.

Think the Hurricanes go to camp with what they have or do they add another player or two?
Gavin Lee
6:32
I think they're still sniffing around to make an addition.
6:33
But Williams scratches a need off their list.
Boy they have a lot of defense though.
Robert

Thats not too high for a 1C
Gavin Lee
6:33
This is Re: Johansen @ 8.5.
I agree, he's probably worth it.

Assuming Markov doesn't come back, what are the odds Vegas would be open to moving Theodore? Was a huge fan during his Thunderbird days and have kept tabs since he turned pro.
Gavin Lee
6:34
Yeah I'm with you Doc. I'm a big fan of Theodore as well.
I would be shocked if they move him though. That was the prize of the expansion draft for them.
Anaheim was what everyone was talking about because they were so plainly in trouble.

last question lol and thank you for answering them what type of contract does Bo Horvat deserve in term and money
Gavin Lee
6:35
I said above, I have to think the Canucks are looking at an eight year deal for him.
Trying to build around him.
6:36
But on the other side, he still hasn't had that 1C season so does he want to lock himself into a lower cap hit for so long?
nucks fan
6:36
how do you view horvat 1c,2c or 3c
Gavin Lee
6:36
I think he's a 2C long term.
6:37
Both sides must be looking at Monahan's deal, but Horvat doesn't have nearly the production yet.
So, a long deal locking him in at ~$5MM isn't really betting on yourself.
Robert
6:38
Who comes out 1,2,3 in the Atlantic in your opinion?
Gavin Lee
6:39
Honestly it's hard for me to say it, but Toronto-Ottawa-Montreal is a real possibility.
