Like Phaneuf being traded. Twice.
- Wildschwein

If they weren't so thin at RW I'd say they could find someone to take Bailey. Regardless of how much we all dislike him, he's got value. Might have to take a bit less than they'd want in return for getting his salary out the door, but the saved cap space would be the real perk. He's got no NTC either. He could be Derek Stepan's wing in ARI next year

Well yeah I didn't necessarily mean that someone will take on his entire contract without the Isles having to give something in order for it to happen

He’s Seattle bound.

Might be able to trade him to the Canucks as well.

That's probably the likely scenario, but I'd hate to have to wait two more years for that

Funny that's actually one of the teams I was thinking of. He's got a reasonable deal and he's signed long-term. I could see him going just about anywhere that needs a RW on a fair contract. FLA could be an option if they swing and miss on Panarin this summer.

Unfortunately we’re all going to have too. It’ll be the most useful thing he has done for this team since we signed him.

What would be a fair deal with the Nucks? Ladd and Bailey for...?

I wonder if him and Bobrovsky are buds and how much that’ll factor into his decision if Florida makes a real push to sign them both? See how this season plays out maybe the Jackets will kick ass and every one will stay? I like the alternate story that they don’t even make the playoffs and everyone bolts. How (frank)ing funny would that be?😂
That team would be an absolute shambles for years😂

My eternal and undying love and support of the Canucks franchise?

There's no way they'd take $10M in contracts. One or the other.

You figure a team like ARI would take him. He might do well with a change?

I don't get the feeling that they're staying whether they miss the playoffs or win the Cup

I get what Jarmo's doing but when I see everyone kissing his ass for "having the guts" to go for it now, I kinda laugh and wonder where the hell he was in recent years? All the sudden he decides to mortgage the teams' future to "go for it" when he knows at least two of his most important players are gone. Now he's given up significant assets for Duchene and Dzingel, too. Dzingel seems likely to re-sign, but there's a really high chance he loses three star UFA's + 2019 1st round pick + the prospects he gave up.

Yup let young guys fill roles and then let them walk unless they become a core piece and replace them with other young players
- Upstate_isles

I know a lot disagree with me on this but I really liked what I saw from Dal Colle. Yeah he has a lot to work on especially his skating but I can see him as a 3rd liner. Not exactly what you want from a top 5 pick but if he can play a role why not? I’d rather him then some player who we know has zero chance of being anything aka Johnston or Kuhnackl.

Upper management probably told him this was his last chance. If so, can't really blame him for taking it.

Well then no thanks. He makes more than Bailey

He's got two less years remaining, but that doesn't really solve the Isles problems now.

Yeah I'd certainly put some of the blame on them. I just think it's funny when I see people praising him for doing it. It's entirely possible that they have to face the defending Cup champs in the first round and that probably doesn't bode well for them.

I don't think anyone would argue too much on that one. He was very good defensively. He may not have been on the scoresheet all that much, but he was contributing.

Only reason he went away was because of the unfortunate fact that Ladd needed his roster spot and MDC is waiver-exempt. That's just the ugly business side of things.

Something like Bailey and Ladd for Loui, Granlund, and Virtanen might tempt me.

Would free up a few mill for Free Agency help and give the Isles a serviceable 3C, in addition to a pest RW who probably hasn't crested yet.

Beauvillier-Barzal-Virtanen ?

I admittedly don't get to see much Western Conference hockey but hasn't Virtanen kind of worked himself back into everyone's good graces this year?

Just seems like there's too many moving parts there. Personally, I'd be open to moving Bailey out this summer and still dumping Ladd when the expansion draft rears its ugly head in 2021.

Sullivan: Rust is out longer-term with a lower-body injury; Ruhwedel is longer-term with an upper-body injury.

Letang (upper body) and Dumoulin (concussion) are progressing, but are not skating. #Pens


The Pens are, literally, falling apart. That's good news for a lot of bubble playoff teams.
