Would it ever.

If not Duchene, who else is Garth Snow targeting with the picks he got from the Hamonic trade?
Gavin Lee
9:22
Could wait to see who shakes free closer to the deadline next year,.
If they weren't in the Metro there would be some interesting options, but it will probably have to be someone from out West.
Teddy

Wouldn't he want to make a deal now so Tavares signs an extension this summer?
Gavin Lee
9:23
I'd be worried if that's the deciding factor in a Tavares extension.
They already brought in Eberle for him
Chris
9:23
Will the Avs get a solid D-man?
Gavin Lee
9:23
They will if they move Duchene
They won't settle for anything less.

Mikhail Grigorenko to NYR?
Gavin Lee
9:23
Interesting fit
9:24
Grigorenko has always been a frustrating player, with a lot more talent than production.
Dan
9:24
Can't see NYR filling the top "D" spot from within.
Gavin Lee
9:26
McDonagh, Skjei, Staal, Smith, Holden, Bereglazov, Pionk and even maybe Day at some point are NHL players.
Klein if he doesn't retire/Europe or whatever.
Kampfer.
It's a lot of bodies.
9:27
Marleau and Thornton are staying in San Jose folks

Maata, Sprong and a 2nd for Duchene...who hangs up first?
Gavin Lee
9:29
It's not a bad framework for a deal.
Not sure Pittsburgh should do it, but that's what it would take
Benji
9:29
What names have you seen attached to Nashville?
Gavin Lee
9:30
Bonino has been linked today
Made a play for Duchene
So, Friedge bomb. Looks like Gagner, Del Zotto, Nilsson, Burmistrov all to Vancouver
9:31
Oh the thornton marleau stuff was the damn 2014 again
That's twice that stupid thing has gotten me.
Good thing I'm not on coverage right now.
Harold
9:32
Where is Grubaurer gonna end up at?
Gavin Lee
9:32
Hard to tell, the spots are all basically filled.
Ducks
9:33
Any hints at Fowlers numbers of his extension?
Gavin Lee
9:34
Eric Stephens had the latest on it with no numbers still: http://www.ocregister.com/2017/06/30/ducks-targeting-ryan-miller-in-fr...
9:35
I think it'll be eight years like Stephens says, and for a big, big number.
Benji
9:35
What would it take for Nashville to get Duchene
Gavin Lee
9:35
Parting with an NHL d-man, which they won't do.
Robb
9:36
Where do you see Fiddler going?
Gavin Lee
9:36
Didn't think I'd get a Fiddler question today.
9:37
He could find a home in a few places that need 4th line help. Toronto, Tampa, even St. Louis or a return to Dallas.
Halvybuckets
9:37
You can only keep one and must trade the other two: Sprong, Rust and Sheary.
