But, can be a depth guy and a huge part of the Providence team.
Joe P.

Where do you see Radulov going?
Gavin Lee
8:42
I have thought for AGES that he was a lock to return to Montreal
But it's surprising to me that it isn't done yet.
Some early stuff this morning about Dallas.
Patrick
8:42
Yeah definitely a little long but like you said definitely good number for now!! Also do you see the caps trading grubauer
Gavin Lee
8:42
I think they have to.
8:43
They have the money to sign all three, but it will put them into the season right at the cap
Copley is ready for an NHL backup job
Brendan
8:43
Gavin, do you have inside sources?
Gavin Lee
8:44
I have some sources that I rarely ever go with for the site. We're an aggregator, and mine aren't usually strong enough to publish anything.
Ward just had Alzner to the Habs for $4.5
Ben noodell
8:44
Awesome. Thanks man. Also on the duchene front, I may be the only one in Avs-country that feels this way, but I don't think we trade him. We have no scoring on the team and if he 'gets right' he's pretty damn good. We just need to move him to wing (or mackinnon)
Gavin Lee
8:45
You may be one of the only ones.
It might not happen though, you're right.
If they can't get value, I think Sakic is stubborn enough to hold onto him.
Sharkies
8:45
Any news on Marceau or Thornton?
Gavin Lee
8:46
Both have deals in hand from San Jose, but Joe is waiting on other deals coming in today.
He's done everything from home, hasn't taken any visits
They'll probably make decisions at the same time.
Robert
8:46
What's Montreal up to? Radulov, Galchenyuk, Price, Markov, a Center?
8:47
MTL just got Alzner.. per Aaron Ward (5yr@4.5AAV)
Gavin Lee
8:47
Sounds like Radulov may not go there, which means Galch might not be moved. They're getting Alzner which is terrible for them
And may spell the end of Markov too
Don
8:47
Any names rumored to pens in free agency other than niemi
Gavin Lee
8:47
Very little. Bonino, Cullen, Kunitz, Daley, Hainsey all look like they're going somewhere else.
Brendan
8:48
Thanks for the response....Anything on Boston besides that?
Gavin Lee
8:48
I'd be surprised if they're major players today
A depth defenseman for sure
Don
8:48
do you think pens will resign kunitz
Gavin Lee
8:48
If his market doesn't come around, he'll land back in Pitt.
But sounds like there are at least a couple of other offers
Adam
8:48
Where do you see Duchene going? As a CBJ fan, is Murray and Jenner enough?
Gavin Lee
8:49
I almost think both teams should turn that deal down.
He may land in CBJ, they're really going for it.
Ben noodell
8:49
Think about it though, what's the hurry? He's a good player, you gotta get top notch return.
Gavin Lee
8:50
Re: Duchene--He is a good player, but contract is winding down
Gotta move him before he walks.
Halvybuckets
8:50
Kunitz to ?????
Gavin Lee
8:50
I'll say Minnesota.
