WELCOME ONE AND ALL TO THE GREATEST SHOW ON ICE
Hey everyone.
It's free agent day!
8:33
First of all, I want to shout out reader Patrick because I forgot to last week.
I hope your Oshie worries are gone.
Chris
8:33
So who goes first today?
Gavin Lee
8:34
There will be a whole bunch that go right away.
Daley, Nilsson, Haley, Elliott, Johnson, Mason
Anthony
8:34
Any chance that Gorton has a trick up his sleeve to bring Shattenkirk to NY?
Gavin Lee
8:34
Unfortunately, I don't think it's going to happen.
8:35
Maybe if he prices himself out of his own market they circle back, but I think he's signed by the end of the day
Joe
8:35
What do you see the pens foing
Gavin Lee
8:35
Backup goaltender, depth defenseman, maybe a bottom-six center
Robert
8:35
TB rumored to be signing Girardi is that a sign of their not sure what Dotchin can bring to team this year?
Gavin Lee
8:36
Well they have to hedge their bets with the youngster, but I think they see real value there on a cheap short term deal.
Girardi can still penalty kill, and that's what he'll be used as in Tampa.
Don
8:36
any word on potential penguins trade rumors for center
Gavin Lee
8:36
There has been this bubbling thought about them stealing Duchene.
I'll let that sink in for a second.
8:37
And then qualify it as unlikely.
Joe P.
8:37
Is Daley a lock to go to the Wings?
Gavin Lee
8:37
Almost assuredly. I'd assume it gets announced right after the period opens.
Ben noodell
8:37
Anyone know what time signings can start?
Gavin Lee
8:37
11am CDT, Noon EST
Chris
8:37
As a ranger fan I think I’m ok with not getting the shiniest toy for once...I’d rather see wise spending...
Gavin Lee
8:37
Yes, that's how you should be thinking.
Wise spending.
8:38
You'll have fun with Neal Pionk when he makes it.
Patrick
8:38
they definitely are lol! Thanks for remembering me!
Gavin Lee
8:38
Haha! Good.
A bit long, but it's a good number for now.
BMac
8:38
Sharp to Blackhawks?  Is this getting the band back together to play a greatest hits tour or a farewell tour?
Gavin Lee
8:38
Can it be both?
They'll be good next year, but that window is closing.
Robert
8:39
What do the Pens have that could get Duchene...?
Gavin Lee
8:40
Maatta+Sprong++?
I don't know how they'd pull it off, and still think it's unlikely.
Brendan
8:40
Is the Ken Agostino deal official for Boston? Curious if you've seen him at all, and if he's a serious option. Solid AHL numbers (MVP as well) and limited NHL numbers aren't bad.
Gavin Lee
8:40
Not official until the period starts, but it's definitely happening.
8:41
I have watched a bunch of him..and personally no I don't think he's an NHL option long-term.
