Hey folks! Welcome back to another live chat.
We'll get started quickly.
How about that legendary Arizona Coyotes forward Marian Hossa eh?
dude
6:15
Datsyuk and Hossa reunited
Gavin Lee
6:15
Excellent. (Datsyuk's deal is actually done)

Any chance the Islanders wouldn't get involved for Karlsson?  They have that Tavares money laying around.
Gavin Lee
6:16
They've definitely inquired, but there hasn't been a lot of smoke around them. Perhaps Karlsson said he didn't want to sign an extension there, or perhaps something was a deal breaker right away.
There's always a chance that something breaks out of New York though at the last second. Lamoriello's staffs are notoriously tight lipped

Black Hawks clearing room to add ?????
Gavin Lee
6:17
It feels like they'll be adding a forward, but I still very much doubt that defense group is good enough.
I don't mind the Manning add, but it doesn't push them over the edge.
6:18
Maybe the believe Forsling can be that difference maker this year
Or maybe they go after someone like Justin Faulk instead of a forward.
Either way, they're adding. That cap space isn't going to sit there

Any chance the Blackhawks look at Panarin  and again?
Gavin Lee
6:19
This one is definitely interesting given the history of bringing forwards back
I don't think they really have the prospect depth to pull it off
But if Panarin gets to free agency, watch out. I think they'd be very interested.
dude
6:19
speaking of the Wings, are they moving anyone?  Have a logjam at forward and need a legit D-man pretty badly.  Plus, they need cap space to sign Larkin.
Gavin Lee
6:20
They will be moving someone out to make room..not clear who though.
There is a log jam of underwhelming players in Detroit
If there really was heat on Luke Glendening last deadline I'm surprised they didn't move him
6:21
Maybe someone like Toronto will re-visit, though they have a lot of money down the middle already

Karlson to oilers
Gavin Lee
6:21
Again, I'm sure they inquired
But I don't see it happening.
6:22
Always a chance since nothing has been confirmed yet, but I can't see them signing him to the extension he wants
Calvin Pickard
6:22
CALVIN. PICKARD.

...is going to be AHL goaltender of the year in 2018-19?
Maybe.
6:23
Such a glut of talent for the Maple Leafs. Both their AHL goaltenders could be NHL backups on a lot of teams.

Thoughts on the possibility the Islanders start tossing offer sheets at Nylander and/or Matthews/Marner when the time comes ?
Gavin Lee
6:24
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see teams use offer sheets.
They're in the CBA for a reason.
But until one actually happens, I'll continue to treat them as fairy tales.
I think the idea of Lamoriello being mad at the Maple Leafs was quickly dismissed after they made a trade a few days later.
6:25
Honestly if I was the Islanders or any other team I'd be offer sheeting Andreas Johnsson right now though.
Sean
6:26
As of now, where do the Blues stand in terms of being favorites to win the Cup?
Gavin Lee
6:27
They're still not way up there for me.
6:29
Adding those four forwards is nice, but I don't think they've caught the top group. Jets, Lightning, Predators, Bruins, Capitals, Penguins, Maple Leafs all probably ahead of them.
