He is going to test f.a. I mean tavares set the new standard I think for that. So this is an extended presentation for them and they have the cash to pay him what he wants. Let's not forget the owners want a splash and theres a new arena on the way. All things point to making some sort of move. Now even if he does go to f.a. the isles will be in on him stone and duchene and if they land stone or duchene and not panarin its essentially like they traded for them instead. Upgrade anyway you cut it

What would you be willing to give up?

Personally I’m cool with offering any of: 2019 1st, Bellows, Pelech, Ho Sang and MDC.

Yeah, but that was before this team (Karlsson especially) began to gell. They are a far more dangerous team now.

Of the big 3 rentals, I’d rather the Islanders pick up Stone. The dude is a Selke worthy winger that also scores at a PPG pace. Imagine slotting him on Barzal’s right side.

Beavillier-Barzal-Stone
Lee-Nelson-Eberle
Komarov-Filppula-Bailey
Martin-Cizikas-Clutterbuck

- Wildschwein


I think the way to go is offer Bailey, #1 and another non major piece. If that is not enough you go back at it during FA and the draft.

Its rumored they want a 1st and current player and a higher end prospect. Bailey sure idt mdc or ho sang get much bellows I would part with as wahlstrom is a better version of him pelech won't do it. Beau may be expendable as in the next year or two bellows (if not moved in a deal) or wahlstrom will take his spot on the wing. I love beau but I would move him and he has more value than all the other except perhaps bailey. Bjs may like the 5 years at a reasonable hit. Wilde has to have value as well he is very good and we can't fit Wilde Dobson Toews pulock boychuk leddy hickey pelech Mayfield aho all on the big club. Does Columbus need d? We have tons of that in the system

I'm sure they're better now. So are the Isles. Sharks are 19th in team D. That doesn't scare me. I still think Nashville is the team to beat out West.

East
The Metropolitan: There are a few interesting storylines in the Metropolitan Division race and it all stems from the top four teams being so close to both the division’s pinnacle and outside the playoff picture entirely, at least in terms of their projected output.

Pittsburgh is the closest to the bubble right now, but my model reckons the Penguins are the strongest team of the bunch and they have the second easiest schedule in the East to go along with that (plus-0.1 win difference). The Islanders’ schedule is nearly completely average with a 50/50 home/road split and an average opponent at .500, plus they’re working with the biggest cushion. For Columbus, it depends on the venue as the Blue Jackets face the fifth easiest competition while on the road, but the absolute hardest while at home (seven of their 13 games are against top 10 teams by my model). That’s something to keep in mind on a game-by-game basis, but it evens out on the whole.

It's not their D that scares me. What scares me most are their special teams. 5th best PP and 7th best PK. Compare that to the Islanders who have the 26th ranked PP and the 16th best PK.

The Sharks are currently 2nd in GPG at 3.68, with 5 separate forwards that have already scored over 20 goals. They have 4 skaters with over 50 points already, and another 3 skaters who'll cross 50 shortly.

Freakishly good team.

They're deep too. They've been on fire lately. I have a few of their guys for fantasy and they're just heaping on the points lately.

As it should be...

Although anyone buying tickets should be aware that the 200s is really the 300s. Learned that the hard way. Lol

NYR getting good action on Zuccarello. Could go for a second rounder and a prospect perhaps. If the return on Kevin Hayes is soft, I could see NYR keeping him and trying to sign him. McQuad will go for at least what they gave up: 4th and 7th rders https://t.co/ngXvrZMBmU
