i think mine are 1) TB 2) MTL 3) TOR -> OTT gets wildcard?(idk why i'm not sold on them)
Gavin Lee

Hey we're close.
I had Tampa as my proverbial wild card, not the actual wild card spot.
I have my worries about Vasilevskiy and their defense.
6:40
But man could they be a dominant team if everything clicks right.
Robert
6:40
TB could be dominant if those forwards get rolling.. they are deep
Gavin Lee
6:40
Sure are.

devils have a lot of centers.Maybe Henrique for Van Reimsdyk,sounds like a pretty fair trade.Money almost the same for each player,Henrique has one more year on his contract than Van Reimsdyk
Gavin Lee

The Maple Leafs don't really need Henrique though, unless they're flipping Bozak as well.
Matthews-Kadri is a really solid 1-2.
If Toronto flips JVR, it'll almost certainly be for a defenseman.
6:42
But, you're right that the Devils could flip him.
It would make them worse this year though down the middle.
The young centers are good but will have a hard time being impact players this year.

Can we fast forward to October?
Gavin Lee
6:43
I would love to. Worst part of my job is coming up the next few months.
But, gives me time to go back and scout.

any good fits for ducks on the free agent market?
Gavin Lee
6:44
The market is almost picked clean, but I do wonder about a guy like Vanek.
They have enough depth that he wouldn't have to play a big role, but it would take some work moving guys around.

Its just a sports dry spell...the summer months
Gavin Lee
6:45
Not if you love baseball!
Make sure to check out MLBTR for all the news and--okay I won't plug.
Alright guys. Somehow it's already been an hour and a half.
6:46
I'm going to sign off.
Really good chat, I thought it would be slower than this. Thanks for coming out.
Arbitration dates will be coming down in a couple days, and lots of new contracts will be handed out before that.
Keep your eyes peeled, and hope that Matt Duchene has a new address come Monday.
Robert
6:47
Monday?
Gavin Lee
6:47
I just threw out a day. No prediction.
