On that note, this draft isn't as bad as everyone keeps saying.
It's got a lack of franchise talent, but still a lot of good center depth.
9:34
As many as half of the first round will play in the middle.

I think duchene will go at the draft
Gavin Lee
9:34
Which draft do you mean Nate?
(Still weird that Vegas will have a team next year.)

nice with an early cat that I can read live! thanks!
Gavin Lee
9:34
Thank you for reading!
9:35
We'll still be doing our weekly Thursday evening chat as well, but how could we pass this up.
Tim
9:35
What do you expect the pens to do?
Gavin Lee
9:35
Add depth defenseman.
lukaku
9:35
How good is zach sanford?
Gavin Lee
9:35
He's really good.
9:36
That is a good deal for the Blues. Maybe not absolutely perfect, but a nice return when their hands were essentially tied.
Chris
9:36
Do you see the Bruins standing pat for the most part this trade deadline? Doesn't seem like it's a team worth sending away assets for potential rentals.
Gavin Lee
9:36
They'll make a small tweek I think.
9:37
Avs and Coyotes just made a deal, but don't get excited.
Minor leaguers.
Joe Whitney for Brendan Ranford.
lukaku
9:37
Can pulkkinen make it in nhl?
Gavin Lee
9:37
I don't think he is going to be a star.
9:38
But if he puts work in on his skating he can play.
Lenny
9:38
Are the Rangers done dealing?
Gavin Lee
9:39
Of course not, they still have their first round pick.
In all honesty, I think so.
It's ridiculous that people are asking about J.T. Miller.

What real move can the Sabres make to improve to a playoff level team. This is a very frustrating franchise.
Gavin Lee
9:39
I agree! I wrote as much the other day.
9:40
I thought the Sabres were going to take a big step forward this year, and it just never happened. Injuries are a big part of that though, and they might just sell off the expiring deals and try again next year.
Richard
9:40
Big Islanders fan. Do you think they get Duchene in the end. We need a center.
Gavin Lee
9:41
I don't think they do.
Sorry to burst your bubble.
William
9:41
What move can the Sabres make? Who has value to the league? We need a playoff team or the Sabres will need to move.
Gavin Lee
9:41
Hey look two angry Sabres fans in a row.
Yeah, they need a playoff team. But they'll get there.
9:42
Jack Eichel is really, really good. People are already forgetting about him, and they won't next year.
Lenny
9:42
Any takers on Iginla, Doan?
Gavin Lee
9:43
Doan is staying put. He doesn't want to go and be anything other than a top line guy, which no one thinks he is.
I wrote a while ago about Iginla still having something left in the tank, and I think someone will go after him.
I mean who wouldn't want an 18 point guy that earns almost $6MM.
