HELLO
It's free agent day everyone!
9:01
What a crazy offseason this has been already. Feels like I haven't slept in a week
Let's get chatting!
Codie
9:04
What goalie do flyers sign?
Gavin Lee
9:04
My guess is Braden Holtby because of the Hart connection
9:05
But there will be a goalie carousel today
Steve
9:05
I read Elliott Freidman predicting Coleman to Bruins!! Is that realistic? As a Bruins fan i'd be pumped!
Gavin Lee
9:05
He added Boston as his guess, yeah
9:06
But also said he thinks it'll be 6x5, so not sure you should be so excited about it
Whoever offers him that will get him, I'd think
So the Bruins have as much of a shot as anyone
Murphy
9:06
Where do you think Hamilton lands?
Gavin Lee
9:06
I'd be surprised if it's not New Jersey at this point
Mike
9:06
will fleury sign with chicago
Gavin Lee
9:06
He doesn't need to sign, he's already signed
9:07
They traded for him
Will he play? I imagine he will, eventually, decide to play it out
Guest
9:07
Dallas Stars: Big time buyers especially if they get off from Bishop?
Gavin Lee
9:07
Not sure how big, but it sounds like Suter is all but done
Guest
9:07
Will Tarasenko be moved before the weekend to open up some cap room for a free agent?  Who should the Blues be targeting?
Gavin Lee
9:08
Free agents are going to be gone by the weekend, but they can move Tarasenko after they sign players today
Durych
9:08
Do you still see Tarasenko getting moved? If so do the Blues get a replacement wing in the deal? What forward could you see the blues realistically making a run at in free agency?
Gavin Lee
9:08
Yes, I think he'll still be moved, no I don't think a winger will come back in the deal
Buchnevich is the replacement
9:09
I have Saad as the Blues target in the free agent list, but they could go after any number of lesser names too
Gert B Frobe
9:10
Hearing that Bernier is more likely than Holtby for the Flyers, as Holtby may be too expensive? Also, the Flyers will likely try to sign / acquire a bottom 6 forward. Any ideas there?
Gavin Lee
9:10
Hearing from where? Bernier is likely going to New Jersey, I think
I think Nick Bonino is a good fit for the bottom-six in Philadelphia
Barrelman
9:11
Jaden Schwartz would be a fine add for Seattle but they still need to find more top-6 production. Where will they find it?
Gavin Lee
9:11
Same thing was said about Vegas, and then William Karlsson scored 43 goals, Erik Haula scored 29
9:12
Just because a player hasn't had a top-six opportunity in the past, doesn't mean he won't succeed with one
9:13
They're not going to blow up the cap space they left open with a ton of free agents
Will
9:13
Where does Eichel land? Been awful quiet the last few weeks
Gavin Lee
9:13
It will be less quiet today
Eichel is skating and the medicals have started to be distributed, at least partially
You have to wonder about Vegas after opening up the cap yesterday
9:14
Minnesota has real interest and has been doing their own due diligence on the injury for weeks now
There will probably be a "surprise" team or two that get involved
Brink
9:15
Stepan, Goligoski, N.Foligno to Wild?
